As a garage my outbuilding makes a great shack to store firewood. I wouldn’t try to drive my car in there even if there was room.
You can tell from the photo that I haven’t spent any time on the garden. What you can’t see is that, just to the right of where I cropped it, there’s a pile of tires and a swing set. I’ll figure out what to do with them next year. 🙂
We all know that there are many things we don’t know – in fact it’s a cliche. It turns out that moving to new surroundings helps you find lots of new things to learn.
I’m certain I had never heard of “heat tape” because, up until now, I didn’t need it. You already know this, but the idea of wrapping a narrow strip of tape around a pipe, then plugging the attached cord into an outlet to keep your pipes warm, was all new to me.
I have (through conversations with people who know this house better than I do) compiled a list of all the places I have to plug in cords in advance of a deep freeze. What could possibly go wrong?
I told you that my portable dishwasher was delivered this week. It’s great and it fits in the storage place I measured for it in the laundry room almost as if I knew what I was doing.
Reading the instructions I learned about “dishwasher salt”. I kid you not – in fact, there’s an idiot light on the machine that tells me when my salt level is low. Which it is, because I didn’t know I’d need it and it takes a while for Amazon to deliver things. I probably didn’t know about this because it’s been a very, very long time since I lived with hard water. Well, that and of course major advances in products we really didn’t think we’d want.
I went to the local Christmas Fair yesterday and got something totally unlike me, but really cute. You’ll see it in December. I also got a different kind of number sign for the house. Another little piece of information to add to my knowledge base. 🙂
