daily stuff

Here it is Saturday again... already! The time sure flies and I wonder just what I've been doing for the last week. I know there were a few visits to doctors/dentists for Wendy as well as her mom. While waiting, waiting, waiting in various waiting rooms I was able to make some more progress on a novel I downloaded to my cell. It's so much easier to read from the cell than to have to drag a tablet along. I do always try to travel light. :-)

As far as projects go, I've finished construction of the frame for the triptych. Just have to sand and paint now. It'll be done in a few days. Washed and polished the bike but haven't taken any rides more than a few miles; and the cooler weather of Fall is blowing in so the end of the riding season is about here. BTW my son bought his first M/C, a BMW RnineT, not to my particular taste but he likes it. Would be nice to be able to ride together except for the fact that we live over 600 miles apart. He's in NY.

Noticed a small puddle on the floor in front of the kitchen sink a couple of days ago. At first I thought I might have been sloppier than usual in rinsing and loading the dish washer. Alas, this was not the case. The garbage disposal is drip, drip, drip leaking under the sink. So part of yesterday was spent shopping for a new unit. Sigh. I remember what a pain in the ass it was to install when we redid the kitchen a couple of years ago so this time around I'm hiring a friend to do the job.

Think I'll go do some sanding on that frame now.

Good luck with the disposal! I had one that gave me all kinds of problems in my old house, years ago, and since I never used it anyhow, my dad just took it off and I did away with it. I never missed it. My current house doesn't have one either. We never had one when I was a child, so it was never an important thing for me, but I know some people use theirs all the time and would be sad without one!

We are just waiting for our plumber friend to have time to do the disposal installation. The old one still works OK, just has that small leak. I didn't grow up with one either but have become accustomed. We don't grind up bones or anything too heavy but find it very useful for just rinsing off food scraps from plates without the worry of clogging the drain.
