24 February 2018
Saturday - Yep. Cough, headache, aching
all over. This sucks. I have things to do...
Friday 23 February
Friday - Still
very tired. It actually feels like I'm coming down with
S mentioned she's sick, but it sounds more like food poisoning.
Thursday 22 February
Back in town. Pretty tired, although not as bad as last week.
Got up at 6am and saw the rocket launch out of Vandenberg AFB from
here. Not as dramatic as an evening launch, which would be back lit,
but still fun to watch. Interestingly enough, my neighbors boy was
watching it on his phone as well, as it was a good half minute before we
could see it here, just in the power lines next to the white house in the
picture below. I guess it needs to be several thousand feet up to be
visible over the curve of the earth at this distance.
Wednesday 21 February
Wednesday - OTR. Contractor repairs
are acceptable to the District. Wrapping up, and heading back to
The I-5 wasn't nearly as busy. Rather nice actually - much better than
taking the I-14.
House and cats look good.
Got a reminder from my brother B that there would be a Space-X Falcon launch
out of Vandenberg tomorrow morning...I'll have to see if I can get up in
time to see it.
Tuesday - OTR. It was 20F when I left
the driveway - the low was 17F a few miles outside of town.
Things are going OK in Saticoy, another day or two of work.
Boat was dry and tight. Needs cleaning, but the boat hose has
failed. I have several in Lancaster, I just need to bring one down.
Monday - President's day. If I was on
schedule for my re-modeling, then I'd be out shopping for flooring on
sale. But I'm not ready, I need to finish priming the house, then
painting on the inside, then the flooring.
Sunday - S came by yesterday with a set of
"sheers" for the french doors in the kitchen. The old mismatched pair
are literally rags, and disintegrate when touched. I had a bed sheet
taped up to give some privacy. The sheers S found were actually free,
from a yard sale, because they are a day-glo lime green color - truly
horrible, and still better than what was on there....
I am slowly getting used to the new place. S also brought another
mattress pad, and two of them mean I am quite comfortable in the twin
mattress, although it's been getting cold enough at night to require using
It's been getting cooler, and I've been using the pellet stove, which when
coupled with a floor fan, keeps the entire house comfortable. There is
a propane central air unit, but AH says that his just devours propane, so I
try not to use it.
