This morning started out with me stepping in cat poo, not realizing it, and tracking it everywhere. Sigh.... Not the best start to a Monday. It is bad enough that she tracks litter everywhere…I have to vacuum pretty much every day, and I am sweeping several times a day. I think next time I will get a fish. Although a fish would have issues with all the temperature changes. Maybe a plant...
I do want to walk this morning. It has been several days. I got distracted yesterday and didn’t get it done. I don’t have plans until 1, so I should be able to squeeze that in. I have a whole list of things to do, maybe I can pick off one or two of those before the soapstone carving class this afternoon. I also have to remember to gas up the car for tomorrow’s rock club field trip.
I ordered a helmet for scooter riding. Took the scooter out and brought the garbage to the dumpsters and took the long way back. It is a fun ride and I think I am going to keep it. Now I need to either make a cover for it or buy one. I’m using a packing blanket at the moment. I may throw a couple of stitches in it so I don’t have to use clips to keep it on. I will leave it in Yuma so I don’t have to haul it half way across the US this summer.
I need to spend some time with my solar setup. I want to try using my crock pot at some point. I miss being able to use that. But will need to be here to keep an eye on the voltage. I also need to get the larger inverter hooked up before I can do that, plus figure out the programming. I need to test it’s limits, see what I can do and what I can’t do with it. It is nice having electricity when the generator isn’t running, even if it is only when the sun is out.
Was a good trade blanket yesterday, brought back smaller stuff than I took (my goal), and got some fresh off the tree grapefruit and tangelos’. I have already had two of the oranges. I’m not a huge grapefruit fan, but will try these. Lost several hours untangling hundreds of feet of purple paracord, that was very frustrating, but now have manageable skeins instead of spools that I can’t seem to find a spot for. I will sell and trade some of it, I don’t need all of it.
