A metaphor for my take on life and how it affects me.
|Here I sit wondering what do I really have to write about today. A friend once wrote about this dilemma, she posted that "once you start writing the words will flow". or something along that line. I'm not seeing any rivers passing through at the moment, maybe there is a beaver dam up river.
The soggy weather continues and looks like it will last through tomorrow. The weatherman says we'll have sunshine this weekend. There's something to look forward too!
We sprung a leak yesterday, not much of one but we did put a bucket underneath. It doesn't begin until we start having a strong downpour. I had our handyman come over after the last rain and he went onto the roof and put O Henrys around the air vents, He did not go into the attic and I believe that will be required this time. At 72 it's not something I should do, so I will need to call our guy back.
In January we had a problem with our ice machine on the refrigerator and called a company out to repair it. He came out and changed out the ice making unit, and ever since we've had a leak. The gasket that meets up with the drop box when the door is closed does not seal properly. The air from the inside refrigerator is getting into the ice machine causing the ice up front to melt. He was the first person we've had in our house since the isolation order came out, he has to come back when the part he ordered comes in. Hopefully we'll remain Covid free!
The wife has gone to the store to pick up a few items. Not much milk, bread, and few other essentials. This should make us good for another week or two.
We had 4 packages arrive yesterday from orders placed last month. UPS, FedEx and USPS were the carriers. They arrived between 1 pm and 8:30 pm, quite a spread. I only have 2 more items left that are delayed account of Covid-19. I did receive a email this morning that one of those items have shipped.
There is talk of opening things up again sometime in May or June, but I don't see how that can be done when they say the vaccine for this virus won't be ready for 18 months. We're talking a year and a half, I'm not looking forward to spending that much time in self imposed isolation. Someone will have to come up with something in less time than 18 months or we're all going to go crazy!
Evidently the damm broke and the words flowed for me at least
