House

Mild Weekend

The weather turned less cold — today it got up close to 20°C and I've let the fire run down real low. Yesterday afternoon, Lisa and I (mostly Lisa; I held tools and stuff like that) worked on some outdoor house maintenance things. Real glamorous stuff: flushing out the holding tank on the RV, cleaning the gutters, etc. What fun. Lisa climbed onto the roof from the upstairs balcony and used the weed blower and a stick to clean out the gutter. She also found an unwelcome guest on the upstairs eves and knocked it off.

Today I spent a lot of time getting the new computer configured and a new setup for the work area. This is the first post I've made on the new machine; the transfer of settings is going better than I expected. I'm really relieved that I was able to get all of my personal files off of the now-dead work machine before it failed. I'll write more about the new setup later. I can't make better arrangements until my employer gets around to replacing the dead work machine.
