It started sometime during the night, my tummy was hurting enough to wake me up, that is a rarity. The nausea has been an all day affair which is annoying because it got in the way of chores that I had planned to do today. I forced myself to walk little Jack his usual three routes but was that absolutely painful. The cold sweat and the leg weakness was a little overwhelming at moments. I made it back to the warmth and comfort of my bed. The dishes are still in the sink,my goal of 1500 more words still untyped and I was planning to bring in a lot more logs into the garage from outside because, believe it or not, they are forecasting a Nor’easter on Wednesday. As if the Northeast needs more wind, rain and snow. Those poor people who are still without power, water and heat; it breaks your heart. It has gotten noticeably colder over the last few days, I hope that the power companies move faster because being cold all the time is horrible. I am so very lucky that my power outage only lasted 24 hours and my house only suffered a broken down partition of fence which the baby boy fixed for me. I can’t even imagine what it would be to see our house either swept away, broken in pieces or burnt down to a shell. That is what has happened in New Jersey and New York. I pray that everyone will be made whole in time.
- Explaining a complicated subject
- I have already answered this a few weeks ago. It was a daily prompt from WordPress. I didn’t have anything of value to share because I am not an expert on anything complicated. I know how to do some basic things really well and those things are pretty much in every person’s repertoire. Wait a minute, I know how to bleed a furnace. You take a 3/8th’s wench and locate the nipple of the pipe that is the emergency drain of the furnace. You take the wench and turn it counter-clockwise until the oil starts running out of the small pipe, as soon as you see a steady stream of oil without any air bubbles, you can tighten the nipple to a close and restart your furnace. This is necessary to do if your oil tank goes down to empty and it is filled, the resulting air bubbles get in the way of the oil flow. There, that is my special know how and I hope that I explained it simply and well.
