Day: April 20, 2020

Mon. April 20, 2020 – 420 day for what that’s worth

Warmer and damp, with sun later? [cooler and overcast so far]

Yesterday was certainly drab enough.  Cool, then rain storm including marble sized hail, then warm and sticky.   Off and on rain.  Not a good day for yardwork so I’m glad I got all that done on Friday.

I did manage to get a couple of things done.

I cleaned the garage fridge.  It needed it.  REALLY needed it.  Since I only use it for packaged food and bottles, I don’t really care if it is dirty inside, but I’m going to put some potatoes, onions, cabbages, etc in it so it needed to be clean.  I shouldn’t have let it get so bad.  Very strange watching it empty out without plans for a refill.

I also got a small equipment rack up into the attic to be my main network rack.  I’ve had it for a while, even insulated it, but didn’t install it.  The plan is to connect it to the cool air return of my HVAC to keep it cool.  We’ll see if that ever happens.  At least it’s up there and off the back patio.

I mostly read and messed around in the house.  Not a productive day.

Today I’ve got to get some other stuff on the list addressed, depending on the weather.

Dinner was left over ribeye roast, with leftover dinner rolls, and saute’d brusselsprouts with bacon.  Yum.  I had peanut butter cookies for dessert, the kids had Easter candy.  Main fridge is slowly emptying out too.  Kinda disconcerting, despite all the food on the shelves.  Whole eggs and whole milk are going to be the biggest changes, IF I don’t make a store run.

My client wants me to come over and fix some stuff, which I’m reluctant to do.  Very reluctant.  He’s a good guy, good customer, and it pays well.  But I’ve been isolated and he has not.  I’ll be having a couple of discussions with my wife before I decide.  I don’t have to have contact with him, but I do have to go in the house.  On the other hand, it’s a BIG house.

If I decide to break isolation, I’ll be tempted to do a store run.  It would be easier if I didn’t have to make a decision myself.

With that said, stay in, stay safe.
