I was concerned that I could not be happy in such a brown environment but driving south to Las Cruces I saw that Spring is here, I see green patches of green grass and budding trees. In celebration I bought a gardenia plant that smells wonderful.
Life is good.
The ride was 60 miles in my smart car, made me smile when I filled the gas tank for the first time, and it cost $20 to fill the tank.
Today we’re having a red flag wind day with winds of35-45 with gusts of 60-70mph. I can really feel it in my RV and would not think of driving my smart car. The wind blew my new large and heavy patio planter off the picnic table, the one I bought in Mexico that must weigh 10-15 pounds, it didn’t break!
Today I tried cutting tiles with my Dremel, what a mess I made. it was too windy to do it outdoors plus I had to keep measuring, not a pretty ending. I had several spaces on my walls that needed irregular sizes plus I put white wall tiles on my bathroom floor figuring why not. My hands look terrible I have abused them in all my works, I finally put on gloves today after the damage was done, I broke the bit and winged a couple fingers but I did wear a mask. I have tile dust everywhere on everything and me, my hair doesn’t move, it’s stiff with dust, means I’ll have to take a cold shower later, why a cold shower> Cold shower because I haven’t been able to get the pilot light back on after we turned off the gas when we took out the stove and I refuse to ask for help cuz I need to do this myself.
I tried to fix the bathroom door latch, it looks unusual and old and messed up and unrepair able which is a shame because it’s cool and efficient when it worked. But really, I don’t need a lock on the bathroom door, it’s just me here and when the door is closed it’s pretty tiny in there, so I need to cover the holes made in the door, see what I mean?
First try with convection oven failed. damn
