We’re finally finished going back and forth in between 2 homes (a rental, and our newly purchased home), this month will be our first month without paying on two places…….now we can save a little money!!!
In my last post, I mentioned we were working on placing gutters around our new home. Bulldog Man and Tank, in these pictures, are putting up gutters and taking measurements. We’ve had several days of severe weather, causing delays on the total install.
Since our new home is out in the middle of the country, telephone service has been a tad bit difficult. We’ve had to switch cell phone providers (from T-Mobile to AT&T) because T-Mobile has absolutely no service in our location. Now that we have AT&T service, functional telephones are only functional in 2 rooms in our new home. To resolve this issue, we purchased a booster from Wilson, a WeBoost 4G, to help with service throughout our entire house and property. The booster will allow us to receive the outside cell signal, amplifying it, and rebroadcast it inside our home. Bulldog Man found a pole at Home Depot, and antenna brackets (from True Value Hardware) to build a mast for the booster’s directional antenna, and ran coax wire directly from it to the middle of the house to connect to the signal booster, located inside the house. I have to admit, having this booster makes a world of difference when dealing with cell phone connectivity. We went with this particular product because it allowed us the flexibility of using the cell phone anywhere on our property for emergencies when necessary. This particular cell phone booster was an investment, and pricey at $549.00.
Hungry and nosy visitor, of the 4 legged kind, left prints across the side yard of our home, directly to our trash can outside. He/she tried to get up the side of the can to open the lid, with no luck. We chuckle to ourselves, when we see these prints daily, trying to get into our trash. Persistent little Booger!!!
I haven’t planted any vegetables or fruits this planting season. When we moved, I brought several containers of strawberry plants to the new home. They’ve started producing berries…..so far the wildlife haven’t found them!!!!
Speaking of gardens, yesterday Bulldog Man and I purchased a new tiller to use in the hard to get places on the property. We bought this baby new because I won some money at the casino the other day. Yes, you heard right!!! While in town, I had time to spare, and went into the local Indian reservation casino, put a few bucks into a machine, and won $200.00; then I went into the high roller room, placed $100.00 into a $5.00 machine and walked out with $3,400.00.
There’re plenty of things to keep us busy here at our new place, I apologize if I haven’t been around lately, and promise to get to everyone’s blog to read and or comment.
Stay tuned, in the next couple of days, I will once again be hosting a nice gift give-away, relating to canning.
