Monday, all day...





The snow is gone, it left via a cold cold wind.  Today is sunny with an occasional breeze. 
 
Mt Adams in the distance, from the hovel


I ventured out to get moss cleaner for the deck and patio at the mega store. People are still clearing the shelves of TP, water, sanitizer, and some vegetables!  Commonsense is not on the menu. Lots of small businesses are really being hurt by this.

My parish has stopped all public masses, and most activities as requested by the Archbishop of Seattle.  Proving once again that you don't need a church to pray.   Oh, but you are encouraged to send in your offerings on line or via the mail. 

Had to call in my electrician to fix the plugs in my bedroom.  Acted like a loose connection, but I know diddly squat about electrical stuff.  The guys came, and yep they were wired incorrectly.  The guys fixed them and took a big check and walleye fillets in payment.

I'm regrouting my bathtub.  Wanted to get it done before this, but have been painting and other things instead. You know "squirrel".

after removal of old grout...


 I will finish when I get back from the blood sucker drive at the parish hall.

  1. Wow....I don't recall us having a couple of inches of snow disappearing overnight before!

    Regrouting tile is one of those "once a decade" jobs. Our grout in the tiled floor areas was so bad we had to call in a specialist to get it clean. He also cleaned all the living and family room carpets at the same time, and while the odor was a bit stout for a couple of hours, the floors looked like new.

  2. Looks great! Glad snow is gone. Its been cold here and raining. Snow all over mountains. Everything is still chaos around town. Shelves bare people in a panic. Schools closed. I still have to work to feed the kids that drive up to pick up meals. So much fun. How long till summer vacation?

    1. Chaos here as well, so many places are closed. My daughter's school is closed for at least til the 1st of April. One granddaughter's college is closed, and they have been snowed in for days. Hoping she will get down the mountain to home this week.

  5. Nice and smooth work around the tub.
    It's amazing how much work it takes to fix the "little" issues, and how much getting them done improves the general way things look.

    1. I wish the first guy had done a better job, but perhaps he didn't have OCD.
