We got a break between two storms and it sunny windy and about 58 degrees. Made a fine time for an afternoon walk. We walked fast and up hill for 40 minutes and never felt chilly. Then we made our way back home before the worker bees hit the roads.
Today was also file our taxes day. It was hanging over me like an overdue book report in school and I decided today was the day, as too many things could cause us to forget to file. Feels great to have that monkey off our back.
I think our 21 year old Dodge Grand Caravan with only 163 K miles might have to be put down. I have been putting off fixing things, leaky radiator, intermittent air conditioning, but now the transmission quit shifting. I have been using the MOPAR list to find out problem and it seems there is a known issue that never became a recall. Poor wire splice for shift solenoid pack has a SB on it. So it is in our garage and I am playing mechanic this week, if I fix it great or if not off to the junk yard for it. Kinda fun to use tools and shop light again. We had been planning to down size to one car like in Florida anyway.
The storm we had lasted about 14 hours with steady winds of 50 mph and gusts of 85 mph. We lost two big trees in our yard and have hundreds of broken branches to pick up. It was still too soggy to walk in our yard today, got a lot of rain also. Those typhoons just love to come here to die out. Many homes in town lost power, but we got lucky this time.
|My yummy lunch today. flax seed chips not my fav though|
More PT tomorrow and it is making real changes in my stamina.
