As in working on my home…
So far today I’ve:
[x] Dug out my workshop so I can actually get at some of the tools.
[x] Reassembled Mum’s closet that had to be taken apart to deal with a leaking pipe in back of the water heater.
[x] Cleaned up the “Payphone” – It’s a novelty telephone that is made to look like a classic Bell System payphone from the mid sixties.
[x] Installed the payphone. This included:
[x] Running a line from the Vonage box to the “Phone Booth” (actually the bathroom. If you don’t tell I won’t…)
[x] Removing and reinstalling the skirting all down the port side of the house to run the phone line behind it
[x] Fixing some of the skirting in the process
[x] Installing a wall plate opposite the “phone booth seat” to mount the payphone on
[x] Repositioning the paneling that was still disassembled from when the valve in the tub was replaced
[x] And finally testing the phone
Still on my to do list for today is
[x] Finish reassembling the wall the payphone is mounted on
[ ] Finish installing the valve in the tub. This will include:
[ ] Getting out my saws-all and ‘tweaking’ the opening in the tub surround to let me:
[ ] install the second long screw that holds on the face plate
[ ] Finally be able to put the cap on the center of the knob
[x] Put Mum’s scooter back in Thunder where it will be out of my way
[x] Put my welder next to Mum’s scooter in Thunder
[x] Load up the overflow from the shop in Galileo so I can:
[ ] Bring it to Storage
I said over on FaceBook that I was looking forward to work on Monday so I can rest. Actually, that’s sounding better all the time!
UPDATE: Checked off a few more things from my list. Mum’s got supper on the stove so I think the rest will have to wait. I’ll drop off the stuff for storage tomorrow on our way to the flea.
