Hell of a Storm Here in CA

Driving back to Upland this morning was like being an extra in a thriller disaster movie. All that was missing was the wind blown sharks or something.  Thunder, lightening, pouring rain on Route 66.  And before coffee.  O_o

I thought I had caulked my camper shell windows really well, but yeah, nope.  So we had that moment every one has camping.  When the flood comes.  It is mostly dry now.  Newspaper is awesome for wicking up water.  I found that out while living in that awful flat for years with the roof not being fixed.  Nothing was damaged but my patience.  I seriously can not deal with having wet feet.  I have been living with cats too long.  You see we don't often need wellies in CA, so I don't have a pair.

It's that time of year again.  Fishcake knows the score, LOL!

You are drunk, Squirrel, go home.


My grandparents in NH used to have to deal with drunk deer every time the apples fell and fermented.  They do a lot of damage, but this guy, this guy has issues.  

I am going mad without my dollies.

Fall At Last!


We had our first really cool day in ages, so I was finally able to get into the storage unit and do some serious culling.  After all, I can always replace the book shelves later.  I have a book I want to try some furniture patterns from that I can't remember at the moment what the title is, (it’s buried in storage) but it's for making really clean lined simple modular pieces that you can change the form of.  Triangles and trapezoids and so forth that you then join with shelf or table boards.  In a small flat that can be quite useful.  

I think my tablet hates most of the internet now, the html formatting always messes up.  So yeah, still alive, still getting somewhere.  We just need a new bigger 5 year battery for the truck and an extension cord and we are going to see how the sewing goes.  A lot of people use their storage units as workshops so I am pondering that.  We would need to change to a garage door unit to make it more efficient, though.  And get an awning.  I am considering donating our fridge and freezer to the animal shelter thrift store, because they pick up and it would free up about 8 sq ft of space.  Anyway about to get thrown out of the library at closing time.
