Saturday: (09/05) A mostly good air day. I worked in the yard. I dug a trench for a faucet under Ernie’s trailer for the utility service. I relocated a couple of pipes and installed the pipe for the faucet. I also energized it and then found a geyser. Seems one of the used PVC pipes I used had a hole in it. With that fixed, another task complete. Dawn’s pumpkin pie for breakfast. Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for lunch. Chili for dinner.
Tuesday: (09/08) Granola and banana for breakfast. I spent some time in the morning outside trimming the arbor. I filled a compost bin. Only about 10 more to do this fall. Lunch was Chili beans for lunch. Leftover soup and toast for dinner.
Wednesday: (09/09) Granola and banana for breakfast. No sun today. The high smoke cover made the morning light dim and orange. Even with that, the air quality says it’s OK. On the high side of good and low side of moderate. We do have a lot of ash falling from the sky though. Dawn had her online class and I attended my Wednesday webinar. A nice ham and cheese sandwich for lunch. After lunch I did a little work in the yard. I rebuilt the piping for the drip distribution in the pull box by Ernie's trailer. It has been leaking. I determined it is because the drip tubing is ½’ not ⅝” and the slip fittings don’t latch well. Ernie also had me work on his shower. He replaced the shower hose but couldn’t get it on the valves. I got it on, eventually. The threads are crossed. But, the valve needs replacing as well because the valve assembly leaks now. I ordered a replacement. Dawn made spaghetti for dinner. The photos below look reddish because the sky was reddish due to the heavy smoke to to many forest fires nearby.
Friday: (09/11) Another really bad air day. I never got outside all day. Just computer tinkering and TV all day. A ham and cheese sandwich for breakfast. Shrimp green salad for lunch. Shrimp and grits for dinner.
Saturday: (09/12) I slept in because I was “busy” watching movies into the late night. I had a ham and cheese sandwich for brunch about 1100. I get the bread from Lou and Dawn’s sandwiches from Subway and other restaurant bread. In the afternoon Ernie cornered me to complete his shower faucet replacement. Fortunately it is a nice day today but still the air is bad. We, at least, cast a shadow today. Lou made shrimp tacos for an early dinner. Avocados for desert.
Sunday: (09/13) Granola for breakfast. Lunch from Los Altos Taqueria. Lou made artichoke chicken over rice for dinner. Another bad air day. The air looked more clear but the reported air quality was still very bad. The flowers below were seen in the neighborhood an a stroll.
Tuesday: (09/15) Bad air most of the day but it was good around 1600. I hunkered down tinkering on the computer all day working on websites. Granola for breakfast. Pizza from Chicago Pizza for lunch. Squash soup for dinner.
