Currently, he's spent 2 days out of range in the middle of nowhere on the coast...2 1/2 hrs. each direction. Longer once he gets on the windy road there, at 11% grade.
Today, he was supposed to go to the south of the county at McNab ranch...yes, like the dog breed, which is about 1 1/2 hrs. there, then the same back, but he had to go with ddil to a Drs. appt. (someone has to stay with the baby, as extra people aren't allowed in. They go in separate cars so that he can just put the baby back with ddil after the appt., and can go to work while she goes home.) unexpectedly, and left late.
So, I am just dealing with it going off, especially during the day, until we can figure it out, then get what it needs.
And, in order to be connected to the internet, I have to be connected to electricity.
The problem has been, that when it works, we jump to heat water, bathe, cook food, etc. etc. Currently, it's working, and we are just heating water, nothing more, so I grabbed the computer, whew!
When Ds was at the coast yesterday, he had to stop at a little hardware store in a town called Manchester. (population 195.) He needed a couple of bolts. While there, he found the size of glass baking dish that I use for my little oven.
I've searched the supermarket, the local hardware stores, stores in nearby towns, Amazon, and even eBay. (I found a couple on eBay, but the shipping was ridiculous. Far more than the item.) with no luck anywhere except for eBay.
This has been since corona, only. So, I've been looking for about 1 year, and really looking hard for the last 6 months.
I have to assume that in a place as small as Manchester, they just don't move as quickly, so what they had was older stock. In the end, I got 2 sizes of dishes, and one pretty, deep dish pie pan, which will work well for my special occasion meals. It's got a pattern on it, and the color is somewhere between a rose, and cranberry.
In fact, I will be making 4 or 5 special meals between now and June, since that's basically how we celebrate everything these days...with a special meal and a dessert that I wouldn't normally make. What a nice surprise that was! Just when you aren't looking!
Well, I should post this, before I don't have internet again. I'll try to answer posts while on, but if I can't, I'll be back the next time the electricity is on. Hopefully, Ds can get my filter tomorrow, or the following day.
I hope that everyone is have a pleasant day! I am just waiting for 7, which is when my tree frogs sing from their little long-pond.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
