Petite1: Glad to hear you did not have any damage from the storm.
CindyNY: My DB and DSIL have a home in the FL panhandle and lost a few palms to the drought like conditions over the summer. They just had a sprinkler system installed so hopefully they do not have a repeat.
I spoke to my DB who was dx with covid 19 and he seems to be making some improvement. He still sounds somewhat short of breath but his oxygen levels are improving. Seems they had been exposed via their son-in-law who was very ill for 2 weeks and it spread to their daughter, his wife. Since they are in a bubble, their extended household is my DB, his wife and their one DD who lives home. The baby had a fever but I haven't heard if she was dx'd. So 6 members of a family in two separate households in a short period of time. It is so scary.
The numbers here and in NJ are on the increase which makes this a scary time again especially since we have workmen coming in and out. We avoid contact with them as much as possible but if we go into a shutdown again, my house repairs will again be on hold. So offer a prayer we do not have to go into shurtdown again.
Does anyone want to hear I bought a new bed a year ago to replace the one that was destroyed? I also bought a warranty which now has expired and I have yet to see the bed. The MBR is shaping up but still is awaiting a new floor installation which is supposed to be installed next week. The other 2 bedrooms have been painted (walls, new windows and ceiling) but the other trim needs to be painted (on us) for them to be "finished". I can handle that and find painting to be an activity I actually enjoy because it doesn't require any mental energy and I can "escape". I enjoy seeing the completed project, it's clean and fresh.
I made the painters catch the stink bugs who snuck in while they had the windows open. They are looking for a winter home, like to hide in curtains and they drive my cats crazy when they buzz around. They did catch and release them, LOL.
The A/C guy came yesterday to determine how to finish the new system. Seems the outlets to the MBR require some design adjustments to make them functional and the one connection, for the downstairs, disrupted by the carpenters installing the flooring in the attic will be fixed. Once the bathroom exhaust fans are connected to the exterior we will be able to move the items stored in the garage back. So more culling as we move them. I just need to sort through Christmas items since everything else has been sorted. Once the garage is emptied we can start to move items from the finished basement to the garage. The basement has also been overflow storage for items from the MBR and LR so some of those contents will be put in their rightful place. I think I will push to get the basement done next since it just requires flooring replacement, some wall repairs and painting. My DH is doing online teaching from his office there so it would be nice if it is all done before classes resume in the New Year.
It is overcast, breezy and bonechilling cold today though it is 50 degrees. After rain for the past 2 days, I'll take it. No workers today so I'll go get some groceries and prescriptions for the dog. She just turned 12 but still has her puppy moments. Have a good day and weekend. Thanks for all your well wishes, they are appreciated.
