I was prepared for this. I had the heat tape plugged in (outside plug to tape around pipe nearest wall).
And, the faucets dripped all night.
And, I capped the outer faucet so it would not freeze up.
And, I made my Grandma's chicken soup. Comfort food. I actually started it instead of breakfast, because it was nice to heat up the house. I also had the oven on warm for the heck of it. And I was drinking a pot of coffee (I drank the whole thing by myself - a first) and needed something substantial in my stomach.
Sundays are usually my 'alone' days. Dick comes and gets the kids in the morning and I then go about my day doing the things I need to get caught up on, or spend time with friends, and I try to go to church. Today was a church day.
When it was time to leave at 12:30 pm for church, my car had a moment. The digital readout said 'test' and it did all sorts of weird things - in terms of the digital readings. So, I turned it off and on again. I let it run for quite some time, and then hit the road. Everything seemed just fine.
And, when I got home around 3:30 I then got ready to go catch the rest of my 49'rs WIN the game against the Seattle Seahawks! YIPPEE! I am surrounded by Seahawk fans and it was GREAT for my team to win!
And that caps a Sunday.. Oh except for a story I have to share.
One of my girlfriends said 'a man' wanted to know if she could give him my phone number.
I called her to find out who, etc. etc. Turns out he used to attend the same church.
So, I told her, if he came to church, then he could ask me himself (I might have been a little sassy about it).
Well, he showed up!
Here are photos from the day....
