Delivery Day

We have been waiting on a few things to come here and by accident it all happened today…

We have been working getting the basement ready to have some foundation repair work completed.  We needed to move the water heater.  It was ailing and needed replaced.  It was stupid to move the old water heater and its plumbing  when it needed replaced anyway.  We had ordered the replacement through Home Depot.  We actually ordered a kick-butt one because with all the rebates that our electric company offered, it ended up being the same price as the cheaper ones.

The man bought the water heater today.

The plumber came to install it.

Here it is installed in the basement!  Hooray!

I’ve had this idea in my head to raise pastured pork.  For years.  I took the plunge and bought a pregnant sow (girl pig).  The old owners delivered her today. Her name is Mouse.

Meet Mouse…,

Lowes also brought our new oven today.  They took away our old old one.  (I have always hated that oven. )  The oven had broken.  Someone gave us their old oven.  That one broke, too.  Hooray for the second new oven!  Kevin will get that installed soon.  Goodbye, old old oven. Thank you Lowes Man for bringing our new one!

Goodbye, old old oven.  Thank you Lowes Man for bringing our new one!

Yesterday I was in Suburban Denver for a day of appointments.  I stopped at Home Depot and bought some purple lumber to build Mouse a new stall. (Purple lumber is crooked lumber that Home Depot discounts 70%.)
