It’s another lovely day today but there will be no quiet reading on the lawn under clear, sunny skies because our next-door neighbor’s house is getting a new roof today, which means we’ll have to listen to the whap-whap-whap of nail guns while an air compressor thrums constantly in the background.

Yesterday was a lovely day but I didn’t get out into it because I don’t know how to budget my time. I intended to hang a humidifier from the furnace vent and that’s all I wanted to do. After I did that, I intended to stroll through the leaves in a park somewhere or go for a ride on my bike, something that would get me outside in the fresh air.

Hanging the humidified on the furnace vent went so well that I was pretty chuffed about it, so I decided to try to hang the controller as well. That took a lot longer because I didn’t have a drill that would cut a hole in the vent that was big enough but not too big. Took a long time to figure out the work-around for that.

Getting the controller hung meant I could wire the controller to the furnace and the humidifier, which was a lot more challenging than the wiring diagram makes it look. I didn’t finish up until just after three o’clock and by then I was covered with so much dirt and sweat that I had to hit the shower.

It was three-thirty by the time I was cleaned up and ready to get some fresh air. Because of effing daylight savings, the day’s almost over by four and the sun sets at four-thirty, so I had just enough time to take a short walk around the neighborhood.

Somewhere in the middle of hanging the humidifier on the furnace, My Darling B came down the stairs to let me know the news media had finally called the election for Biden. Hilarious that they waited until Trump was on the golf course so he was less likely to call a press conference or rant on Twitter. Across the United States Americans literally started dancing in the streets to celebrate Trump’s eventual removal from office. How awesome is that?
