Good afternoon. Wowsie, I got up early because the burner guy was coming by to give me an estimate on the plumbing in the basement. Well, I'm getting an estimate, but it won't be for the plumbing.
It seems that my burner is leaking from underneath it. The leak comes from inside. It's a "has to be fixed now" problem. It means, need new furnace, Also, the hot water heater has to be replaced too. I don't need to tell you that I almost choked on that news!
I could be looking at figures around the ten thousand dollar mark. The burner guy called the company that made the furnace, and there's a chance some of the work might be covered by a warranty. We'll see. He will let me know as soon as he finds out what is what. Yeesh! That plumbing estimate is just going to have to wait a bit. The furnace always comes first .
You know, it's a good thing my hubby was always a very organized person. The manufacturing company wants something to prove that I was the owner of this house before the furnace was purchased in 2008. That meant I had to find an old tax bill from the year 2007. I put my hand into a bag of old bills, and pulled out some paid 2007 real estate tax bills. Just call me "Georgie Porgie." Stuck in my thumb, and pulled out a plum.
With all this jolly news under my belt, I left to get Jazzy and take her to the college. She will have to call Uber to take her home after her classes. Actually, she is taking finals all this week. I have tons of stuff to do. When I got home from the college, I started right in on my wrapping. So that's what I'm doing now (before I sat down to type this post). I'm up to my elbows in wrapping paper, ribbons, tags, tissue paper and boxes.
Obviously, I haven't had a chance to sit down and play on my laptop. So, I don't have a new quick page for today. But I do have an old scrap kit that I can give you. There are two quick pages included in the kit. This kit is my part of a collab kit that I made with my friend Suruha, It is fun and might help take your mind off the winter weather.
Here are your download links: (any problems, let me know)
Here is the answer to yesterday's puzzle. There is a button missing from the mole's jacket. (bottom left corner of original puzzle)
The answer to Monday's puzzle might have been a bit confusing. The correct answer shoe is the second one down on the right (of the original puzzle). It is missing the tag on the back of the shoe. Sorry if I confused you.
Now I really must get back to my wrapping. I'm hoping to get it all finished by tonight or tomorrow. Wish me luck! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
P.S. Silly me, it wasn't Georgie Porgie who stuck his thumb in his pie, it was Little Jack Horner.
