It was chilly but not that cold Wednesday morning. I think it was because the winds had died down.

So my morning walk was refreshing, for a change.

I went to the Time Out for lunch, so I could go to the antique store afterwards. There I bought a hanging kitchen light from the 1950’s that I thought would be perfect in my house (it was built in the early ‘50s, after all). From there I went to the Ford Dealer to check out a car, but they didn’t have one on the lot.

My afternoon walk was more challenging as the wind had picked up. It was blowing from the east at around 15 MPH.

Finally, it was 5:00 p.m. and I headed home. I had to take the turns and curves carefully so my light fixture didn’t break. I got home and treated the cats. Then I went out, cut off a short length of chain, hung it on one of Jake’s bike hooks, found an “S” hook and hung up the light fixture. It will be a while until I can put my plan into action! But, here’s what it looks like…

I changed clothes and started the Wednesday night wash. Then I went in and watched the news. When the news shows were over, I did two things: 1.) I measured the walls and the soffits in the kitchen. 2.) I went up into the attic to try and determine if the kitchen ceiling is drywall or lath and plaster. I couldn’t figure it out by feel.

Back downstairs and washing my hands and arms (to make sure all the insulation was off), I warmed up dinner. I ate the last smoked sausage section, the last of the radish salad and some more of the corn pudding. I have officially decided I am not all that into corn pudding.

After supper, I watched a taped movie, “Death proof.” This was Tarantino’s homage to B-Grade, slasher-type movies (I can’t remember what you call them). What’s interesting is that Jake, Carla and I saw this in the theater when it first came out.

When it was over, I went to bed.
