Day 15 in Villisca

Today was a productive day and I feel better, like we might actually get things done. Maybe it was the break at dad’s house or else it’s because Dad gave me a million dollars.

No it's not real...

Or maybe it was the yummy breakfast.

It certainly wasn’t the broken ceiling roller.



But it might have been the two finished ceilings

Bathroom ceiling looks good

Or maybe the pruning job I did on the roses.

I feel like Rosepetal Place

Or the new writing the electrician did yesterday



But I think mostly it was that the electric inspector came today. First he passed the house, then he went to the power company and tips then he passed it and then….



We have power!!!
Yes, we now have all the basic necessities of human comfort. Though to be honest, other than the lights and the refrigeration issue I haven’t really missed it. Odd I guess. I think it’s because we’ve been kept busy doing stuff that didn’t require it like drywall and painting and all that. Oh, and I did miss air conditioning on those two really got days but today it cooled off and right now, in fact, I’m chilly. Figures, doesn’t it?

And now after watching 7 episodes of Baka and Test, I am ready for bed. Have a good one.

      I commented the other day but like like wordpress ate it Lol! Thanks so much! Sometimes one feels like they’re just writing into the void. 🙂 and I bet you’re right because while on one hand it’s like “ahhhhhh!” On the other there is a sort of accomplishment and almost sick enjoyment. It’s almost fun sometimes. And since you’ve been there if you have any advice please feel free to share because we’re winging it here Lol!
