It's colder there than up here in southern Ontario. Lows of the high teens is all we have.

I would suggest leaving the cabinet door under the refrigerator open.
From what I've seen, that is how the plumbing gets to the toilet.

Ohh, thanks, Mark....that had not occurred to me, tho other lower cabinet doors where the water tank and some canned things live are open. I will do it.

It is so cold here the air hurts when you walk outside, but it is just the one night then is to be 45 tomorrow. Never got above freezing all day today.

D & I had a hot whiskey this evening....yum, warms you from the inside out, and just the thing on such a cold night.

Some hot whiskey sounds good!

I was just in that cabinet and running my endoscope under the bathroom/shower today (routing wires). So it was freshly on my mind.

Another first....single digit temps, with a -2 windchill, while sleeping in the Interstate.

Encased in microfleece head to toe, furnace and space heater running, we slept quite comfortably, and nothing (additional) has frozen up.

Going to take a super LED flashlight to the area under the frig today, and see if I can see anything going on under there, also set the space heater to direct that way.

I ordered glass and silicone lids for my IP yesterday...seem to be necessary accessories for regular use, particularly the glass lid for holding something once cooked.

A nifty little travel item, this Instant Pot.

D is impressed with its speed and ease of use, particularly as the lid to her crockpot is still missing from the move.

A busy day, did a lot of cooking and had company for dinner.

An enjoyable evening with good people, and Lily is exhausted.

Interestingly, tho she and the bulldog are still going toe to toe, something passed between Lily and the cat when we came back on Friday, and they have decided to peacefully coexist....the cat now roams freely in the house, and Lily doesn't bark or chase her back into the bedroom.

All is well, tho still no water to the toilet.

Have decided to begin my wander toward home on Wednesday, with a slightly southern route rather than the most direct, straight across the country.

Because, it will be warmer, and prettier.

Leave them with their time off and the house to themselves.

Sleep..soon.


Maggie

Thanks, Bill.

Starting to look forward to home, thinking about yard and house things needing done, taxes to have prepared , getting back to my needlework group, etc.

Nice to be gone, always good to be home.

Sweet son turns 45 tomorrow, and coming up close on 3 years since Doug has died....lots of water under the bridge these past 3 years, me and my life have definitely changed. Sigh.

I miss him every day, but we are doing okay here, and I am grateful for that.

D and I are going to spend the day out, leave SIL to referee the dogs and enjoy the otherwise quiet.

Tomorrow will finish some choring here and ready the Interstate to head toward home.


Maggie

D and I are back, it is 45 degrees....and water to the toilet is running with no sign of leaks anywhere!



SIL reports Lily and the bulldog had no issues while I was out of the picture.

We stopped in a really nice, well-stocked pet store near Trader Joe's, where I found this bumper magnet my daughter insisted I buy...

True, if you are another dog.

Your SIL has the "it" with respect to dogs if the two had no issues while you where gone. He should consider becoming a handler, a great experience and job. Safe Travels

Hi Bud, and thanks.

You are right about SIL....a police detective, he "handles" for a living, tho people.

He thinks the turning factor with the dogs is my presence....Lily doesn't want that bulldog near me, tho he likes me and wants me to pet him. He puts that toothy muzzle up to me, and she just freaks out.

Lily has had an extraordinarily averse reaction to this particular dog, which I recall happening only a couple of times in the past, but we're leaving tomorrow so she, and he, can relax.

The bulldog is really getting the idea of using the backyard, now goes to the door and noses it to be let out, is exploring the further reaches, etc.

The cat discovered the garage last night, and when retrieved sat at the door to it and yowled to be allowed to return.

Lots of interesting smells out there, I am sure.

They are becoming country animals, exposed to things they've never before experienced.

Maggie

Sounds great. In my opinion it's the vibes you are or may be giving off, OR your SIL could be spot on and it's jealousy on the dogs part. I have to admit our daughters little Yorkie hates our yellow Lab, Hopey. I can walk them together etc, but the second I'm gone he attacks her, bites her and she just stands there looking at Alice and our daughter for help, both of whom are good with dogs and know to relax. So, I've given in, they are not put together. My forth failure in over 1,800 dogs. But, they are not switches or machines.

There's been lots of barking and gnashing of teeth, but no physical contact other than the occasional sniffing of posteriors ....what Mimi calls "air barking", which Lily and her lab mix, both alphas, did a lot of when we were together last summer.

When I tried to give her dog a hard stare, to try to back her off some, she leaned forward and did it to me.

It's okay, more annoying to the humans, as the dogs seem to know exactly what they are each doing, and why.

Good morning Maggie. Seems it has been a nice visit over all and good the bulldog and cat are getting their "country self" in line. It is quite an adjustment when any animal is relocated, and certainly from apartment life to their current situation is traumatic for them. Give the kids my best wishes and congrats in their new home.

Safe travels home for you. Evelyn.

Thanks, Evelyn.

It has been a good and very productive visit.

If I lived closer, I could do more, but then it's their house, after all, and they need to learn things about caring for it.

I painted trim around the window in the front door this morning....it which was a darker paint and had been left unpainted after the door itself was sloppily painted a glossy white.

More than a little messy looking, and one of just a couple of things needing tending to...both painting, both of which I did.

I suspect the door was something begun which didn't get completed.

D is starting to get her sea legs, doing a lot of research about how to do what to wherever, and making plans for after I am gone.

They're going to have a lot of fun getting it just the way they want it, tho it's in very good shape...just needing some furniture and personal touches.

When my friends were here on Sunday, and D's friends on Saturday, both did the "oh my gosh!" reaction when they got thru the front room and into the big kitchen opening on to the great room, with all the windows and vaulted ceiling.

A very comfortable place, with lots of charm and special touches...I couldn't be happier for them.

We are going to make a trip to World Market this afternoon...she has a list of things she needs and is looking for.

Lily will ride along, rather than be left here with the bulldog.

Maggie

Wound our way southerly this morning, past the most gorgeous old homes and miles of very old stone fencing , into Pennsylvania and thru the Delaware Water Gap area....which Doug and I camped in one fall 4-5 years ago.

A beautiful area, even in the brown of winter, with a nice NP campground that has electricity.

Settled into a campground south of Reading for the night, and should get on into VA tomorrow...where there is a very nice COE Campground open all year.

All is well, tho I am headache-ey for some reason.

Sweet son tells me 5-7" of snow is due at home this weekend, so I will take my time getting there.
