We had a firepit on Saturday night, our first one of the year. We had planned a firepit party twice in the last couple of months but both times turned out to be among the hottest days of the year. We still had the party but we never lit a fire, we just stayed inside in the air conditioning. Now that Fall is here - or will be in a day or two - we should have better weather for it.
With friends over I had the help I needed to get the washer and dryer into place on the new stand. The freezer is already on it's little stand, left. If you take a look you can see how I also have the metal shelves up on wood and the bottom shelves painted with the same mold and mildew proof paint. We've not had any water in the basement in quite some time now, and when we do it just trickles to the drain, but it has been damp enough down there for me to raise, replace and paint the bottom shelves after mold had grown on the bottom side a couple years ago.
The washer/dryer stand is pretty cool. It's only 12 inches high but makes a world of difference getting laundry in and out - or will. I've been busy (okay - lazy on Sunday, but that's what Sundays are for!) since then so I finally got them balanced and hooked up again tonight. Essentially, the stand doubles the height of the opening from when they were on the floor. And that means a lot when you have a back like mine, but I still keep an old office chair down there so I don't bend so much.
Last night we went to another Heritage Series Craft Brew Dinner at Dexter's Pub. This time we had 6 in our group. It was fun but I do have my complaints. I'll write about it later, I've got stuff to do tonight other than more writing so that will probably be my next post. See ya then!
I'm 50-ish, happily married and child-free. My wife and I have a home near downtown Madison, Wisconsin since 2009. I am not on farcebook or other social media, only this blog. If you wish to reach out to me you may email me at email@example.com. I check it when I think of it, at least monthly.
