Smile and keep going

Smile and keep going
try to ignore the quake.
It’s not fear it’s a new reality.
New reason to find a new strength,
A new challenge, just to keep going.
The more I move and push beyond
The more strength I find.
Must keep going.
Must put another step forward
And another until they add up
Until the day is done.

27July20 Last Sunday my Tesla app informed me on 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

This one is just like the old one but has a bigger batter, smaller footprint, and a hand vac that comes with it’s own electric brush roller for vacuuming up pet hair on furniture and oh, the beds that neurmal sleeps on and stuff.  #2020pad #vacuum #pethairremoval #electrolux

This was stir fried prawns with sriracha sauce and hoisin sauce, along with @vettapasta’s high-fibre spaghetti.  I’d love to find some of their fettuccine high-fibre pasta again.  And I really must learn to slow down and really savor these meals. It was gone before I knew it.  #2020pad #sundayprawns  #cookingforone #cooking

25July20 The start of a very nice meal. Some whi 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
