Bleh

Was ill last night after tea. Don’t know if it was food poisoning (good gracious, I hope not!) or the ‘mild’ flu symptoms from having had a flu shot a few weeks ago, but holy man, I was totally wiped out, and spent most of today just ever so slowly getting back on my feet again. I’m a still a bit slow, but on the mend. I hate rude surprises like this.

29July20  I have a note on my wall to leave parcels on the porch.  Some bright spark delivery guy has been leaving quite heavy boxes of electrolyte drink right in front of my screen door.  After this parcel, I put up an additional sign with an arrow so stuff gets put on the other side of the porch.  Sigh…. Yes, it has worked. He read the sign and put it it next to the wall. (My door cam even showed him READING the sign. Wow!) #2020pad #coronavirusdelivery #deliveries #readthesign #thanksforblockingmydoor
13Jul20  This was supposed to be a 10 minute exercise of legs only on the rower, with the intent of building power in the legs, getting used to driving with the legs and pushing your hardest against the foot pads each time.  It was to be 2minutes with a 2minute rest in between for 5 intervals. Well, I went six because I didn’t believe I’d done five already.  I was also able to walk afterwards but man, the backs of my legs sure felt it for a couple of days.  #rowing #darkhorserowing  #homegymlife #keepmoving #2020pad
27July20  Last Sunday my Tesla app informed me on my phone that the Powerwall was running my house electricity. I didn’t take that to mean I was off grid, but that’s what it meant. By time I realised, the Powerwall had used up it’s stores so my lights went out.  I went to flip the meter isolator switch and waited for the grid to reconnect. I did NOT expect it to suddenly start making grinding gear and spark-like noises!  I had my phone in my hand so I recorded it.  When a friend stopped by I showed him the video and he called SA Power who came out, watched the video and disconnected my power from the meter so I’d have power overnight until the energy retail company could come replace their damn faulty meter.  This was the 2nd time a power outage had caused the Powerwall to drain completely and then not start back up again.  The engineers at Tesla have thanked me for my patience as this is a genuine bug they weren’t aware of and have been investigating it.  Bugs… they find me. Rod would not be at all surprised.  I used to run into software bugs all the time.  Just my luck.  #2020pad #powerwall #tesla #sapowernetworks #bugfinding #electricity
04Jul20  Erik gets a lift home.  We had Lunch Group today and both Erik and Anne came.  It was such a pleasure to see them again.  #goodfriendsgoodtimes
25July20  The start of a very nice meal.  Some white wine, a packet of smoked salmon, crumbly blue cheese, onions and garlic…  With pasta and some veg.  It all started because the cheese was supposed to be creamy and for using on crispbread. Instead I had to figure out something to cook with it.  If it were summer, a salad would have been the answer.  #cookingforone #cooking #crumblycheese #bluecheese #whitewine #smokedsalmon #garlic #onion
26July20  Two sleepyheads on my bed.  I wanted to join them!  My doona cover has little pink roses on it.  Perfect for this week’s Challenge Friday word.  #rose #catsofinstagram #cf20 #2020pad #letsleepingcatslie #sleepingcatsaregoodcats
