Update: It's leaking.
Not one to ever know when to give up, he's back there, at it again. I am in the other end of the house, except when he needs me to do something useful, like google the difference between C PVC and regular PVC. And offer moral support.
In the meantime I am working on the back bedroom, cleaning it up and getting ready for a house guest this next weekend. That poor room... everything with no home winds up in there. It IS the home for some things. The closet is a storage/pantry. There's a shelving unit that houses several small appliances, including 2 crockpots, a rice cooker, a dehydrator, an electric skillet, a waffle iron, a George Foreman grill, a large cone colander in a metal stand. Last Christmas's rolls of paper, bags of ribbons, gift bags and several assorted and sundry cardboard boxes were on the bed. Other things that I put in there, thinking--I'll get to those later (and don't). And of course, that also where, all along one wall, we store our 45 gallons of sprig water that we get from the springs and drink, There's a large dresser on another wall that houses linens and stuff. The top of said dresser is a train wreck. It will take me at least 2 days probably to get that room cleaned up. But git 'er done I shall. I've made a big dent in it today. Work a while, stop a while. Work a while again. It's my MO. lol
I found a fully cooked smallish (loaf pan sized) meatloaf in the freezer that is thawing for supper tonight. Trying to empty out enough of the freezer to be able to put ice cube trays in. lol It's 88 right now, and feels like 94. We've gone from winter to summer it appears. It's not horrible in here, AC and fans going, curtains drawn. Drinking lots of water. I'll heat the meatloaf in the airfryer, cook some potatoes with onions in the microwave and heat up some peas the same way. Not much added heat to the house that way.
**New update: Apparently he forgot to glue that particular joint.. All the pieces had to be dry fit and then glued and he overlooked one. Bless his heart. He glued it and is now off to the park with a dog. He needs a break from this circus...lol
Well, I'm ready to get back at it. There are canning supplies in there that I need to figure out whether to put in the garage or ?? And I may vacuum and I may not. Might be a tomorrow job. We'll see. AT any rate, it looks like we may have the water heater installed. Again-- we'll see. Hats off to all of you people who manage to keep your homes and homesteads in working order without resorting to murder. Prayers for those of us who struggle.
Happy last week of May.
