Good evening folks!
Sorry for not posting Wednesday's (Yesterday's) blog, because of the windstorm, some rain and it being mostly cloudy that won’t help with my solar panels. That’s right, we have type of small solar panels, unlike house solar when it is cloudy or raining, it won’t charge the batteries! Everything was very low on battery charge at that time.
Anyway, yesterday, due to the upcoming weather I read about, I decided to stay here in our 2 ½ acres land all day. At about 2:45 pm, I saw a storm cloud start to form from northeast area and as it approached us I saw some “devil dusts” around it as a strong wind started up. We had a slight rain off and on that started at 4:00 pm and lasted for the next 4 hours.
Today (Thursday) I woke up at 6:45 am and weather started being nice to me, not too cold or too hot or too windy and clear skies. Nice, eh? Had me some coffee with the solo-stove and warmed up my small dinner rolls with the tea candles and open a package of honey from KFC that I saved and spread it on the rolls! Yummy!
I took a quick bath, got dressed up and left here around 9:45 this morning. I just left my solar batteries alone to let them charge up for the day.
About 20 minutes after I left as I was walking along, someone gave me a nice ride with Ford F350 Turbo Diesel Dually Truck, 6 speed manual transmission! LOVE THAT TRUCK!!! I WANT IT!!!
He dropped me off at the front of the post office and he left. I finally, I mean finally drop off the package that I was supposed to yesterday! Dumb weather, duh!
Anyway, after I dropped off the package, I went to the library to relax for a while and ready a book about the Civil War, I love that history!
I left the library at 1:20 and took a bus to Walmart to do some quick shopping. Then I went to Taco Bell for a quick lunch and took bus back to the last stop on Avenue I East and headed back to my land. My good friend saw me walking and took me home at 3:30 pm. I went to the country store to get some ice and some Fritos Lay chip to muchie on!
As soon I got back again, I was finally able to charge up this Chromebook and my phone from the solar batteries. I let it charge up for almost 2 hours so I can open this Chromebook to start the blog!
That’s about it for the day!
Have a nice Friday!
