Sunday night chit chat 22 April 2012

Carla says this can be a photo or saying.

"Honk if you love Jesus. Text while driving if you want to meet him." –as seen on a bumper sticker

I finished reading My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell. Not sure what to read next.

I watched the movie, Baby Mama, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I liked it better than i thought i would.

Listening to
JoJo purring and the rain.

Nothing special this week.

Happy you accomplished this week
Got a neighbour to take a look at the wonky light fixture in the dining room. He's a marine electrician, and i asked if he'd take a look to see if the wiring was all right to the fixture, and if the fixture was all right except for the switch. I mean, we can look at this stuff, but we're not experienced enough to know what exactly we're looking at. Turns out it is a wonky switch. The trick now is to find an switch with a long enough thread. It seems the current style is 1/4 inch, and i need 3/8 inch. We're not in love with the light fixture, so we can replace it, although a switch is less expensive than a brand new fixture.

Looking forward to next week
Puttering around in the garden and getting to work on the boat list.

Thankful for today
Although it wrecked my garden and outside chores plans, i was glad to see the rain.

Great fun playing hockey. We had two good, very fast games.


  1. 'glad to see the rain'?. I'd be 'glad to see the back of the rain'!!!

  2. Bahaha!! Love the bumper sticker!! At least the light switch is a fairly easy fix! :)

  3. Cro, we haven't had much precip lately at all, so the rain is very welcome.

    Carla, the switch is easy in theory--remove from the old chandelier and insert new one; only the new switches all have threaded stems that are several mm too short! I have two more places to look to see if i can find the right switch--one of the places also have some beautiful chandeliers, so i might be replacing the whole fixture.

  4. I love this , the newest snippet into your life
