Day 371, Year 6: This is a Test
Date: Sunday, October 30, 2011
Weather: Stormy Turning Mostly Sunny Mid-day
Location: Eel Pond, Woods Hole, Massachusetts
This is a test and I’m not sure I’m going to pass. We have just had one thing after another go wrong and this morning I couldn’t believe it when the both the refrigerator and the brand new inverter/charger were both NOT working. We think the refrigerator has a slow leak somewhere and needs to be recharged with Freon, but we have absolutely no idea what went wrong with the inverter/charger. Mark installed the new inverter/charger on Thursday and it was working great. Then during the night last night it started making a loud buzzing noise and then just totally quit working. We are at a loss in figuring out what happened. Mark goes to Boston to the doctor tomorrow and will take the new Xantrax to the closest repair facility a little north of Boston. Then we will just have to wait and see what they say.
Mark worked at West Marine today and I spent my day being frustrated by one thing and then another. I had planned to bake a pumpkin pie today. I bought the things needed on Wednesday, but not until I went to get the can of pumpkin out today did I realize that all the groceries I had bought that day were in the bag that was stolen. I went to the little market here in Woods Hole and bought what was available. By making some changes in the recipe, I did end up with a pumpkin pie. Heather, Jed, and boys were in Woods Hole for a Halloween story telling evening at the community center. Afterwards they walked across the street to Windbird for dinner. Jonah was dressed in his ladybug costume and Sam arrived as Superman. They were both “super” cute. Tomorrow they will wear the costumes to school and there will be a parade through town just before noon. You know Oma will be out there taking photos of Ladybug, Superman, and all their friends.
