We had good weather for the last couple of days but all that is going to change Monday. We’re back to sporadic thunderstorms for the rest of the week.
We’ve had a heck of a week with things breaking down on us. First it was the fridge. Fixed that. And then the freezer part of the fridge failed. I want Greg to check a couple more things before we call the repairman. He took a look at it last week and estimated it might cost up to $2000 if it turns out to be the compressor. He says it beyond his ability and we’ll have to call someone else–driving in from Dallas no less. That house call will be expensive all by itself.
To add insult to injury, both the push mower and the riding mower keeled over. The riding mower was a quick fix–it needed a new battery, but Greg’s still trying to fix the push mower. He thinks he’s going to have to take it apart and clean out the individual pieces. Thank goodness he’s mechanical.
I’ve got a lot of weeding to do. I haven’t mentioned it, but I’ve been terribly ill for three weeks with overwhelming dizziness. I thought at first it was a sinus infection, but it never got better even with antibiotics. This weekend I’m finally feeling relatively back to normal. I still have to be careful if I swing my head to the left, but otherwise, I’m back to my old self. Now it’s a race to catch up on everything I couldn’t do when I was bedridden. I’m just glad not to have the room spinning anymore. That was not fun.
How’s the weather by you? Have you been doing any grilling lately?
