Tonight will be cloudy with a 30% chance of showers this evening while the wind remains southerly at 30 km/h (19 mph). Tonight's low will be1C(34F).
I had another good day and much to my surprise slept from 10 to 6 this morning. Things seem to be returning to normal.
On our walk yesterday Abbey and me met up with a couple walking their St. Bernard. As usual I asked if their dog was friendly and took Abbey for a visit when I received a positive reply. That huge dog sure cowerd Abbey. She stood perfectly still while the big dog did the sniffing introductions Then hid behind me. lol I guess it was my turn to be the protector.
I changed my mind about making another wire holder for the shaving brush as I ad thought of a new way to hold the brush. I epoxied a small rare earth magnet to the base of the brush instead. Those magnets are so pwerful that i think I could pull a loaded semi with one just 6 inches square. I get mine from old hard drives that have either crashed or are so small that they are of no use anymore. While repairing my computers or updating one for the neighbors I've accumulated 10 of them. More of what the Queen calls my packrat/hoarder syndrome.
it works so well that I think I'll do the same with the razor and toothbrush by gluing a small piece of metal to them leaving the magnet available for future use when they have outlived their usefulness. Pack-rat/hoarder. :) I also repaired a toilet in the upstairs washroom that has never flushed properly. It looks like a factory flaw had almost closed the fresh water inlet with porcelain. After 30 years of putting up with leftover floating turds it now flushes properly and all it took was a few taps with a hammer to clear the opening.
if the Queen find out that it only took me 10 minutes to repair the toilet and make the brush holder she'll be looking for a large harness and leash today.
After doing my Dorthy domestic chores I got to do what I'd always accused the Queen of when she was a full time mother and housekeeper. I had a muffin, put my feet up and watched TV. :) It's a good thing it was dark or I'd have been on the streets looking for young ladies to chase. :)
