Things are beginning to be covered with mildew. Not inside so far, but parts of the woodwork on the outside of the house are mildewing. There’s just so much moisture we can take and I think we passed the limit three days ago.

So it was a huge surprise to see the sun pouring through the trees this morning when I woke up at 5:30. The day was mostly cloudless and there hasn’t been a drop of rain. The weather forecasters are warning us not to get used to it but it was a huge boost. I spent the day setting stone outside, and the kilowatt meter was working overtime finally getting a chance to record some real electricity coming in from the panels on the hillside.

During an all-day deluge, I spent almost all of Monday setting tile in the kitchen facing the bases on which the cabinets stand, and the backsplashes behind our counters:


The tile is Marazza. I’d looked in several places for tile that had color and texture to go with the kitchen wood and counter tops. Even the very expensive places came up dry but Home Depot had these and at a very good price.

They want the federal government controlling Social Security like it's some kind of federal program.

Hey, I just had a thought...are you guys using a Dehumidifier? We used one in our basement at the last house and it took out amazing amounts of humidity from the air. It made everything smell better too. Happy for your rays of SuNSHINE!
 
Yes, Lewis--we bought one a month or so ago and have been using it constantly, moving it from room to room as needed. I think it's saved us from getting mold in some places.
 
Hey Will, it looks lovely. Very very nice. :-)
