Hump Day

I took the trash out to the road on Wednesday (4th of July bumped up my pickup day) and then went to work. It was 70+ degrees and muggy already.

I walked outside at 10:00 a.m. but I didn't like it!

Sidebar: I'm more of a Spring and Fall kinda guy. While I don't like it too cold, I hate it when its too hot!

With all my little restaurants closed for vacation, I went to Ruby Tuesday. I got my usual: the buffalo chicken sandwich and fries, with a side of extra blue cheese dressing. I skip the tomato and pickle and just get the cheese and lettuce.

It comes with three huge chicken tenders, which makes the bun unwieldy. So, I take one off at the beginning and eat it with the side sauce.

I switched up from my usual water to lemonade. It seemed like a summer-time drink.

Sidebar: My favorite lemonade was the one my sister-in-law Jean made when I was a kid. It was fresh-squeezed, with slices of lemon floating in it. It was fantastic and I have never tasted any better in my life!

It was too damn hot to walk outside in the afternoon so I walked around inside the building, much to the amusement of my co-workers. But, most of them were here when I had my rolling walker and that damn brace, so they understand why I have to do it.

When I got home, I dragged in the trash can and got the mail. Then I changed clothes after treating the cat.

I went out to the garage and got the right screwdriver. Then I got the fan down!






I rigged up a temporary light until I can rewire the new light fixture.





I peeled my last four russet potatoes and cut them in cubes. I popped them into my Dutch oven and topped them with a bag of sauerkraut. Then I sliced a ring of kielbasa on the diagonal and put them on top the sauerkraut. I brought it to a boil and then turned it to low.

I went and watched the end of the news. I checked the potatoes and, when they were tender, I dished up a big plate of food. I ate the sausage with Dijon mustard and the potatoes with butter and had and excellent meal.

I watched a taped show from PBS about the early Greeks and then went to bed.

  2. There is nothing wrong with the fan and it will get a new home. But, I have another fixture I bought at an antique shop a few years back I want to install.

  3. Nice job with the fan. I was wondering how you were going to accomplish that alone.

  4. Trust me, I damn near killed myself doing it alone. It was only hanging by the wires and I had to catch it (standing on the step ladder) when I finished disconnecting them.
