Well I managed to be sick with a cold the whole time Russel was away at Aikido Summer Camp 🙁
This is the time I usually install / learn a new software product or do something just for me… not this time.
But just before he left we did get our electrician out to the house and have the solar panels installed, the inverter and battery array, and some more finish electrical in the house.. we can flick on a switch now for lights and fans and tv and DO NOT have to start the generator!!! Big Step.
And now we are packed (I’ve been packing for days it seems) to go to Michigan and visit Dad & Sue and the rest of the family for 2 weeks. It’s been quite awhile since I have been there in middle of summer, trying to prepare for the hot and muggy weather. I know we will have a good time. It’s just the getting there.. we drive 5 hours from here to Sacramento instead of driving into the bay area or taking a chance on fog at the Arcata airport, stay in motel and then fly AmericaWest into (this time) Las Vegas then Detroit, on the way back we go into Phoenix.
Wish us safe journey’s!!
Oh, and I forgot to mention that we have sign (meaning scat) of big bear and baby bear … haven’t seen them, but 2 bears have been around the house the week I was in town sick! Hopefully they will stay out of our garden while we are gone.
