Camping, watching, improvements and reading
Seems ages since I did an update type post. Our meals have mostly been repeats of favorites or lots of grilled fish so....nothing exciting to share on that front. I have taken a short hiatus off Instagram so if you noticed I disappeared, that's why. Instagram is sleeping right now.
Watching/ Not a lot of TV for us lately. We did get two non fiction space programs which we enjoyed very much. Apollo was great and used real footage from the missions. It even has that clip with Walter Cronkite speechless. Astronaut Pam looks like a children's video but it isn't. It focuses on retired USAF colonel Pam Melroy and she does an excellent job of explaining about the training involved to be an astronaut. It was very interesting. Watching them train underwater was amazing.
The library also had a series called The Rookie. We are fans of Nathan Fillion so that was fun to watch.
Repairs and improvements/ Our upstairs tub and shower has needed replacing for a long time. Finally - it's done. It's very nice too.
The Before photo....well, it didn't look like this when we were using it. This is mid way during the tear down stage.
The After photo. Wow - so much room!
Speaking of repairs, our electrical power pole fell over. Actually it rotted and fell after a heavy rain. The pole is about 40 years old (our house is old) and it gave out. The lines were on the ground so the local electrical company came out and attached those a tree for now. Otherwise they'd have to cut the utilities as it wouldn't be safe. Niiice. An electrician is supposed to come give us an estimate for the new pole and burying the lines.
Camping/ We are meant to be heading to Henderson State park near Destin Florida but we will see what goes on with the tropical system headed our way. Hopefully it will pass.
That's it for now. Hope all is well in your world.
Recently I have been wanting to use my slow cooker more so dinner could be simmering away while we enjoyed the day out. Or just sitting aro...
Happy New Year!!! Impressive dancing and fun old videos set to Uptown Funk. I'd definitely injure myself on some of these maneuve...
The Dish is an old movie I had been meaning to post about for a long time. The movie is based on a true story about the Apollo 11 landing ...
