Andrew and I have a saying......."Only one of us can be "insane" at a time!" Today.....Andrew woke up feeling fine! Thank goodness! While I was moping around the house, he went out and bought some beautiful tulips for our vase, some truffel cheese (our favorite!) and some of our favorite wine! When he got back I put the flower in a vase, he cut up some of the cheese and poured us each a (small) glass of wine!
It took a couple of hours, and Andrew's help.....but I feel better now!
We did end up taking Sammy for a long walk in the woods, and we went to the grocery store together (nice to have help hauling the groceries home!).
I've started researching areas to move to when we go back to the States. It's very overwhelming. We don't even know what State we want to live in! We're looking at the mountains in California and Nevada, Montana, Idaho and Colorado. We've also thought about checking out Texas. We do know we want to stay west of the Rockies...mostly because of the weather.
The past few days the water temperature in the shower has been fluctuating, meaning the pressure in the boiler system is low. Sooooooo, Andrew and I decided to tackle the job on our own for the first time!
First of all, we had to hook up the hose to the radiator in the kitchen:
Then we disconnected the dishwasher and hooked up the other end of the hose to the water faucet under the kitchen sink:
I went upstairs and opened up the cabinet for the boiler (which is over the staircase):
Then we took this special key:
After dinner, I was about to put everything away under the sink and discovered the connection was leaking. Soooooo, we disconnected the dishwasher again, put some plumber's tape on (luckily I had brought some from the U.S.....don't ask me why!!!), then put it all back together again. Voila, no more leak!
