Week 8: Can you believe it!?
Two months now.
Have you stopped to look back at your own posts?

I don't dare, but know things have moved forward a bit.
Today my electrician friend John is returning. I have to work at 4:00 and since he's not here yet at 10:30, we might not accomplish much. However...
I have these cool, recessed outlet boxes I bought from Arlington Industries. They make the most sensible electrical stuff! They'll hold a duplex outlet +a cable hook-up. They have dividers so there's no crosstalk. I'm going to have him put it in behind some of the MBR cabinets, plus, install a toe kick heater. The floor is FREEZING in the winter, so what's a chick to do? You guessed it.
Here's the outlet thing. Cords don't get in the way because they're IN the wall!
The toekick heater is like this:
Again, I got a great eBay deal on these. I got 4 for $200, vs. the market price of about $175 each. I have a very cold house in places.
I can do that stuff, or I can have him install 5 lights. I'm feeling a bit braver, so I might try the lights myself. I'll decide.
In the meanwhile, I got rid of 6 boxes that held crap. Two pendant lights in the kitchen, a bunch of paint store boxes and other assorted garbage-like things. This morning already I took it all to the end of the drive, which now looks like I've been evicted. I took the good cardboard and laid it in the gardens, pulled weeds and threw them on top of the cardboard to hold them down. Sometime soon I'll cover them with wood chips. Recycling at its finest
So with any luck, there might be more that happens today. If not, I did volunteer to work tonight. Other people have families and less altruistically, I need the money. Gotta pay John. :)
Stay tuned and let me see what you're doing!?
Shicksal? How's your morning progressing.
