This Week, 2010
Saturday - At the beach.
- Getting ready to head out. Very busy all day long, actually headed
out to the coast about 6pm, after a very long day. Fortunately Kirk was
with me and willing to do the driving for the first half, so that made
it easier. Also him mom had made lunches, which we devoured for dinner
along the way.
Thursday 26 June
- Mowed front and back, and did laundry. Vacuumed upstairs, much to the kittens distress...
Wednesday 25 June
Wednesday - Got the west side swamp
cooler mostly secured. I still need to add a couple of small things,
but it's OK for now. I'll probably redo it when I get back, but it's
secure and waterproof.
- Keeping busy, working around the house and in the yard. Made a good
start on getting the west side swamp cooler in, there is some stuff
still to be done, but then there's a lot of other stuff, so I did other
things in the hot afternoon...
- Cleaning up in the yard and garage mostly. It's getting hot, and I
want to be able to put the Explorer back in the garage. To do this I
had to tear down the painting setup, and do a lot of picking up.
a shot of the window security panels after a final coat of paint in the
garage, tan and blue-green. The smaller item is the old one that I cut
and sized last year, the other is for the bigger west side window a/c.
took a lot longer than I thought to put in the old a/c unit,
starting about 6:50am it took until after 9am to get it all in. By the
time it was done I was hot and sweaty and my back hurt.
Afterwards I went over to S's
place and we discussed app stuff, including bluetooth assistive switch
stuff. In the end we bought a bluetooth adapter from RJ Cooper, and a
couple of big buttons from Ebay for the cost of a single new one
The Apple iOS 7 was a big improvement over iOS 6 for
assistive stuff, I'll have to research what iOS 8 might have brought to
the table, perhaps over the vacation - supposedly the new-to-us beach
house "has wifi"!
- Working away on various chores. Mostly just taking it easy and trying to get ready for doing a big batch of chores next week.
I need to space things out,
but essentially I need to mow front and back, vacuum and dust upstairs
and downstairs (my cat sitter has allergies!), clean the bathrooms,
clean out the garage, and install the security panels above the window
a/c units. Plus the usual laundry and dishes, plus pack for the coast.
And fix those bikes.
The chores that are imperative are the security panels, but I should get most of these done.
