It has been a while and as usual, it was basically laziness and trying to get things done in between the downpours. The rain is just not letting up at this time. It is very hard to get anything done. Last week there was a break one day and was able to paint and install the wood stove I acquired.
THE OLD LOOK
THE NEW LOOK
When you think about it, A little paint can make a difference. I did manage to get it installed, just before the rain came again.
Yeah, the old man still has the strength
The red around the base is tape, I caulked the base and it started raining so, I figured the tape would protect the caulk. It didn't. A few days later we got a real torrential downpour and I discovered a leak. Not big but, still a leak. I haven't been able to fix it yet due to the constant rain. Hopefully it will stop raining before Winter, LOL.
I have my buddy that likes to hang out although, I believe he has ulterior motives, the nuts I supply him with.
The first Moon showed up at least for me and I was really happy to see it. As a matter of fact, I sat on the deck drinking tea just looking at it. I am also glad to see nightfall as well. Easier to sleep. I even saw stars.
Here is a salad I threw together, lettuce, onions, carrots, corn, mushrooms and Italian Dressing. It was pretty good.
Made a pot of soup also, tastes good on damp rainy days. Turkey macaroni, pinto beans, green beans, corn, onions, mushrooms and there may have been a few other things in there, just can't remember.
Took a few random shots
As usual, these are taken from my deck looking into my yard.
Took these yesterday, just before it started pouring rain again. It seems to clear up for about 10-15 min. and wham, the rain hits again, hard.
I am really hoping the weather will get better soon but, listening to the weather reports, it doesn't sound good for the rest of this week. I will have to put up with the leak over my wood stove for a bit longer or come up with an idea. My thought right now is to cut a piece of plywood to fit around the double wall, tar it and slide it up to the roof and connect it someway with small screws that don't go through the roof and hope that does the trick.
I hope this is somewhat entertaining until I get better weather or figure something else out. Take care.
