Today's accomplishments

December 3rd, 2017 at 10:02 pm

1. Spent a fairly enjoyable hour raking leaves outside. I haven't had time to do this for at least a few years. I used a large tarp to rake the leaves onto and emptied 3 loads of leaves into the woods.

2. Dad came over and I brought him to "UK Gourmet" so he could find some "real" marmalade, you know, the kind that has actual orange rinds in it. He got a lime variety that looked pretty good.

After that, we stopped at Lowes where I ran in to recycle some CFL light bulbs and get some LEDs for my dining room chandelier. The only remaining CFL bulbs now are the globe lights above my bathroom mirror.

I filled up the gas tank, and then we had lunch at the Chinese restaurant.

3. Put my jammies on around 3 pm, sat in bed and read my hometown newspaper with a cup of hot tea! Delightful!

    Sounds like a wonderful day! Especially in jammies by 3pm.

    Are LEDs even more efficient than CFLs. I'm excited to have replaced two strands of christmas lights with LED versions this year.

    Yes, LEDs are substantially cheaper to use than CFLs, and they last much longer, too. Part of my decision to replace them now is I don't like the idea of having small amounts of mercury in the home, especially since I can be clutzy and drop things, causing a potential haz-mat event.

    Yes, I don't like the mercury in CFLs either. That is what we seem to have in most fixtures in our rental home. I could probably replace the ones in lamps we use. And if I really wanted replace other fixtures I could. I would just save (carefully) the current ones so I could replace them when we move.

    Glad you had a relatively relaxing day!
