Home Repairs and Another Walk In the Rain

By: plapman , 12:14 PM GMT on May 25, 2012

To ay will be mainly cloudy with a 60% chance of showers late this morning and this afternoon. The wind becoming northerly at 20 km/h (12 mph) early this afternoon. Today's high will only be 7C(45F). UV index 4 or moderate.
Tonight will be overcast with a northerly wind at 20 km/h (12 mph) becoming light early this evening. The low will be 2C(36F).
------------------------------------------------- ---
With the daily rainfall the irrigation pump sits in the garage unused but ready to go. My repairs to the check valve seem to have worked. I checked yesterday and after 2 days it still had 40 psi. If it ever stops raining it will be good to go.
I took Abbey for another walk in the drizzle we had yesterday. The moisture sure doesn't bother her as she came home panting from her run in the gopher trails but she sure smelt bad. :)
I talked with a contractor and got an estimate on new eave troghs, the old galvanized one have been here since we move and are leaking in a couple of places. I'm replacing them with aluminum ones. The'll last longer than me. :) The estimate was a lot lower than I'd thought it would be. The garage door is next on the list to be replaced. I now know why most people keep moving before repairs are needed. I like my old house and with the price of housing now I sure wouldn't want to start another mortgage since mine's been paid off for years.I guess the mortgage cost more than balances the cost of repairs.

Happy house repairs/renewals/improving... We too periodically find something to 'improve' for the house.

Walking in the rain can be fun if it doesn't rain so much that it turns one into a mold lump! Our dogs do smell horrible after they get wet and then come into the house. It seems that their 'wool' acquires a nasty odor.

Well, have a nice day and happy remodeling.

Good morning Tony. That is for sure, don't get locked in a mortgage if you can, you end up paying twice of what the house is worth. No wonder so many folks in the US are losing their homes. So sad.

That work at home site you sent me is a fraudulent site. A real scam so don't get involved with that crap. If you want to work from home and are a good typist, I suggest sending your resume with a cover letter indicating what kind of work you want and send it out to various institutions like hospitals, Medical offices, lawyers offices, etc...you can make money doing outside work that way but these scams you see advertised, stay away from...they charge you a lot of money and don't really find you work.

Have a nice day dear one.
