Christmas and Stuff
Weather Conditions; Sunny, 45 degrees
We’re hoping everyone had a good Christmas.
My son came in from Oklahoma and spent Christmas with us.
We haven’t spent Christmas together for 3 years. It’s really nice that he lives closer and we can get together for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Christmas day we had a big breakfast and then went to the movies. We saw the movie “Unbroken”. Great movie!
For Christmas Dawn and I bought new recliners. Lazy-Boy was having one of their famous buy 2 for the price of 1 sale. We don’t have them yet. We had to order them because we choose two different style recliners but want them covered in the same fabric. We can’t wait for them to be delivered!
I’ve been working part time at the Corp office. That is interesting work.
I worked on the desk in the fiver. Dawn and I have been using the chair area under our built in desk for storage for a good while.
We decided to put a front on it and make it look more like a cabinet.
We went to a builder surplus and found a couple of cabinet doors pretty cheap.
I installed a shelf
We bought a half sheet of oak plywood and our new cabinet doors and enclosed the opening.
I by no means, am a carpenter. Even with that said, it doesn’t look shabby.
It holds a lot of stuff!
We have purchased a dehumidifier too. That was a great investment. We bought a Hisense 35-Pint 2-Speed Dehumidifier.
The windows on our fiver are always wet inside when it’s cold outside. We ran the dehumidifier for about an hour and the condensation disappeared. It didn’t take long to remove the moisture inside.
Even though we hang Dri-Rid bags in the closet, we still have found a little mold on the wall. I placed the dehumidifier in the bedroom near the closet and about an hour later, it had collected about 6 cups of water.
It’s a little loud but we don’t run it all the time. We turn it on for about an hour or so and that seems to work great.
We have 3 more months before we return for our final 6 months of gate attendant work.
Dawn is already planning where we might be going when we leave here. One thing for sure, we’ll be returning to Rockport for the winter months!
