1. I have a tankless water heater, so no flushing of that. 2. The plumber flushed the valve and hoses before the appliance guy replaced a few parts on the washing machine. This resulted in solid success with laundry today... three loads, fre... Read more

Water softener has been replaced. A lot of lines have been flushed out, and I was able to enjoy a shower... without getting covered in little yellow beads... yes! But the washing machine needed some attention, so I called a guy in to look ... Read more

Going to cost some $$$$, but that's life, right? By the end of the day I will have one new water softener (this one is so old it doesn't have the replaceable basket of beads, so I'm just taking on a new one), two new toilet valves (that got clo... Read more
Home Summer Camp report - overnight
Wednesday, August 05, 2020      23 comments

I slept with the windows open, taking advantage of the cool spell. This was the second night of leaving windows open. In fact, yesterday was nice enough to leave them open all day long. Kind of goes with the "Summer Camp" theme of carting in ... Read more

So,today was laundry day for the masks. I wash them in hot water, and I got THEM done, but I did not get the load of whites done. The water stopped up before that happened. Then I noticed OTHER places in the house where the water pressure jus... Read more
Maintenance Anniversary
Tuesday, August 04, 2020      30 comments

But am I really maintaining, I ask myself. Because of course honesty with my Spark buds is a HUGE part of my program! I'm in fact about ten pounds up from a year ago. Sigh. And I'm once again "overweight", above the desirable BMI range. ... Read more

Monday miscellany

Bet you know (at least those of you who sometimes suffer allergies) that allergens are cumulative. I am feeling the after effects of open windows, house cleaning, and cats. Yep, those cats claiming the bed, Shasta's visit (even though she uses... Read more

The windows are wide open, as are the inside doors. Air circulation is recommended to avoid transmission of Covid19, you know, and today Shasta is masked up, as am I, while she gives the house some extra love! I always love how fresh it is whe... Read more

Customer Service in Pandemic times
Wednesday, July 29, 2020      24 comments

I wrote in a blog a little over a week ago about the shopping "errors" with my on-line order. I did want to let Sparkers know that the grocery store I order from picked right up on it when I responded to their survey with comments about the err... Read more
