It is dramatically cooler today: 76! But back to the 80s and 90s tomorrow. We’ll have to close up the house some tonight due to the cool north breeze. No rain. It is hard to believe that this is the beginning of August!

I was complaining of being bored and useless so Donna put me to work on a project I had planned a week ago: replacing part of our 2″ water hose. She was right; I feel a bit better and got some work done before the clouds wandered off. Of course now the hose is totally unusable until I get it it finished! But the section of old hose looked more like part of a lawn sprinkler system while we were unloading water!

The Dishwasher

For a week, our dishwasher has been dripping along the front but Monday, it went bananas and water flowed over the kitchen floor! Not a huge puddle but along the floor in front of the cabinet. I removed the bottom panel and cleaned that up; it was very wet!

The hose lying there unconnected is left over from the previous piece of crap dishwasher that came with the house. It was easier to leave it lay than remove the sealant between the cabinet sections. When we run a load fo dishes next, I will watch for the source of the water. It wasn’t obvious since NOTHING on the bottom of the machine was even damp!

I needed another project!
