Monday Moanin'

I woke up late on Monday. Apparently, I neglected to set the clock alarm. Fortunately, the alarm on my phone woke me up a half hour later (it's my backup). Which is why the Blog post was so late.

I threw on my robe and went outside to check the rain gauge. We got another half inch overnight! So that's 1 1/2 inches of rain over the weekend.

Sidebar: I was grateful, but surprised when I heard on the news that Mount Clemens got spit. Since between May through the end of July, we are 4 inches short of rainfall. I was pleased but sorry for my Brother Carl.

I went to Ten Yen for lunch and got the almond chicken. I ate about half of it and took the rest back to work.

Then I went to Lowe's and got the screws I need to complete the light fixture installation.

Once I got home, I got the ladder out again, put in the longer screws and then put on the light fixture.I reinstalled the light bulb and the glass fixture. I went inside and wired on a temporary plug.

Sidebar: I've had security concerns ever since the light's been off.

It was getting late when I finished, so I'll get back to actually wiring the light and plug correctly another day

I realized I forgot my chicken and rice in the fridge at work. So, I warmed up a hot dog, and ear of corn and some bush's Grilling Beans for my dinner.

I got a call from my sister in law, Coletta. She thanked me for the birthday card I sent her and then told me some sad news. My sister in law Jean's Parkinson's has gotten worse and she is in St. John's rehab (same place I spent a week in after my spinal fusion). Get well soon!!!

I read for a bit and then went to bed.


  1. Are you doing this project yourself now instead of the electrician?

  2. Yes. He blew me off last week and said he'd text me with the next date on Sunday. Sunday came and went and nothing. I can do this, I just didn't want to.
