I didn't sleep well Sunday night. My back was hurting. So, when I got up Monday morning, I didn't feel rested. I shaved and showered. It was still early, so I laid on the bed to watch the news for a while...

Yep, you guessed it. Woke up after 9:00 a.m. I already had two texts from work, asking if I was okay. Reassured everyone and went back to sleep.

Just did a few minor chores. The water in my barometer glass had evaporated enough that is no longer worked. So, I got out the food coloring, mixed up a cup of blue and used the syringe to refill it.

Since I had it out, I added red food coloring to my upstairs toilet tank. The toilet makes weird noises now and then and I want to make sure its not overflowing. So, I didn't use it the rest of the day (this trick takes at least 12 hours).

Speaking of water, they must had just upgraded the water treatment plant or something. The tap water had a strong chlorine smell to it. It was like trying to drink bleach! I filled up several glasses and let them sit to let the chlorine evaporate.

I ate the last of the goulash for dinner.

Before I went to bed Monday night I checked the toilet bowl. It was absolutely clear! So, it may make noises, but it is not leaking. I flushed it and it looked like I murdered a squirrel in there or something.


  1. "Woke up after 9:00 a.m."

    This wouldn't happen if you lived in a company town!

  2. LOL! Next time I move, I'll look for a "company town."
