Laundry for Days
Going to air some dirty laundry today literally. Many of you who write me asking about things to consider when moving to the tropics – good airflow and laundry are two that top the list. I will use our bedroom closet as an example. We never had the best airflow in there to begin with though the size is decent. We used to do our best to keep things aired out so they would not get musty smelling. After the 11 inch rain we just had the leak that was small turned to mid sized. Was enough to get some stuff wet and so I had to take it all out and watch every single thing – thank god our borrowed washer came back when it did.
Now that I am ready to start putting things back I did a bit more thorough inspection of the closet and saw that the prognosis is not good – mold is going to be an issue. I will wash the ceiling down before heading to the pool and see how it goes from there. Must remember to check for the source – we think it is somewhere on the upstairs side veranda. Would be good to fill things now when it is dry and breezy.
Funny observation we moved Last Year right before lobsterfest – could this year be not long after?.
Joey I am sure all of you had fun in Barbados and Grenada. The count down is on and before you know it we will be talking in person. We have a lot of great things lined up for you and the crew and we will make your time here in San Pedro a memorable one – you will all enjoy how friendly everyone is – totally sesame street.
What was to be a simple cleaning [wishful thinking] job turned into a minor renovation – past training taught me to scrape the plaster first to get rid of all the loose bits. Since I had no putty knife I used the end of a metal ruler and was not impressed by how much I was able to get off. I also noticed that one portion is plywood and the other drywall which starting to bow and it has a light fixture in it.
9:30 Low Rider just came on love this song – time to go get ready for the pool.
Fun group of people at the pool today… Maureen – Jo – Gwen – Ana – Cindy Forrest – Eileen and myself. On the way home Forrest was telling Cindy that 40 is the new 30. I agreed and took the reminder to come home and do an aloe home spa to help soften the sun – I also wore a visor to the pool it was super bright out.
Been networking Cousin Erin and Jo with Carbunke Trumpet in Memphis. They are passing through on their way to Texas and so I filled Erin in on how they should trust John for bbq as he owns a smoker and showed her pics of his cooking to back it up. I also told her about Tad’s tour which was of interest to her.
New water bill is in – not bad at $47.43 bzd Anyone else have a comparison for how much they spend on water here [or anywhere for that matter] in a month?
