I can’t believe it’s almost November. We’ve been cooped up a lot these past few weeks, but we’re going to have dry weather for the next couple of days so we’ll be out working on the garden and other necessary projects to get ready for winter.

We had a couple of bad breaks this week. We discovered we’re going to have to replace all six batteries on the golf cart. I use this vehicle a lot to get around. We knew we were living on borrowed time but we can’t put it off any more. Greg says the batteries are beginning to swell.

If you know anything about golf cart batteries, that’s $150 each times six.

To add insult to injury our power inverter for the solar array is busted and past warranty. That’s another $1400.

Why does everything have to die at once? We’ll try to spread out our purchases. Batteries for November and the inverter in December. That way it won’t bite us all at once.

  1. A great menu for the week, but what a pain to have so much fail and need replacement all at once. Hang in there, my pal.

    My big fail this week was trying a new coffee cake recipe that suited my dietary needs. Although I followed the recipe faithfully, it mysteriously turned into marzipan on me, and then the walnut topping came out semi-scorched. Not sending this one to you unless you need a disaster cake. 🙂

  2. Maria we can always count on “breakdowns” at the end of a year, that and Death and Taxes come without fail and are never welcome by anyone when they do.

    However you two have a plan in place to take care of what needs to be done, that mental state is half the battle and the other half is when you win if things work out the way you want them to.

    On a positive note our weather has finally been gloriously rain free for 4 days and counting. Love that sunshine and even enjoying the hotter temps while they last for once as have found myself really tired of the damp cold.

    • Jackie: The weather has been beautiful. We were working outside all day today, but I think I’m going to pay mightily for it tomorrow. Every muscle in my body hurts. I hate to think how I’ll feel tomorrow.

      I’m sure you’re like me. The damp cold hurts my joints. Even if I had to work like a mule today, at least it was pretty.

Say a few words for our audience.
