Sophie’s ophthalmologist appointment somewhat disappointing. Dr didn’t see expected improvement from previous laser procedure. Evaluating other options, one being surgery. That issue scheduled for Aug 5 although he will have options, one being a suture. At least 2 preop appointments before.

Speaking of fire wood, did you really mean fireplace in the "old folks home", Paul? I would think a wood stove would be much more efficient. Then again, some of the fireplace inserts might as well be wood stoves, as they use the same principles.

Yup big old stone fireplace. For playing with fire and atmosphere, not heat. I’ll have gas fueled radiant floor heat and a SEER 23 heat pump for that. The only efficient feature of the fire place is going to be a fresh air vent for combustion.

If only permits were that fast here.

I started the process in September when I applied for a zoning variance, followed by stormwater management exemption and board of health approval. Then submitted drawings for the actual building, including electrical, plumbing and HVAC.
None of the steps were onerous, just time consuming.

Coffee is brewing. 60° with partly cloudy skies this morning. Heading to 80° with lots of sun. Grocery shopping went good. When I got home as supposed to start putting mulch down. But air quality was bad. My Sinuses were not happy. Did a conserve energy day. Hope to get out early today and get mulch spread around gardens.

Everyone stay well and safe.

Good Morning All.

good Saturday morning all
was hoping to get lots done today but looks like more wet weather coming in.

Thomas, great tractor pics. thank goodness for hydraulics.

Bill, hope you are feeling better this morning and that outlook improves.

Riptides, hard to keep up with field grass in the Spring, particularly after lots of rain.
bet it felt good getting it done

maybe I'll get going early before rain comes, nice to have light coming in windows at 5:30am.
if I see light, and i'm in bed, hard to stay there. Except if it's raining.

I'm with Popgadget and a natural fire. The big challenge is not exhausting house heat out the chimney after midnight.
I always wondered if a glass door was worth it, pain to keep clean, but once heat is in the house, you want it to stay there.

working on plans for Lapp Structures in Quakertown to build a small mower shed for me, so I can get stuff out of garage.
I realized I only need one set of movable ramps, that saves a bunch of money, since the Gravely doesn't get used that much.

feeling pretty good this morning.
hope you all are too
