Covid and Dinnerly

The Dinnerly saga may be over.  This week's edition has been resolved.  We received our weekly Wednesday box on Thursday night at 8:15.  The ice had long melted and the interior of the box was at 56 degrees.  There were three packs of beef in it and I'm thinking I'll cook all three today since their storage life can't be long.  If it were chicken I'd just throw it out.  Of course, I wrote Dinnerly and cancelled all my future deliveries as I think through the choices.  I REALLY like having three meals delivered.  It saves money and covid exposure time.  

I had a call back for potential covid vaccine testing.  There is a testing lab a couple of hours from us that might be setting me up for a trial.  Which would me, I think, that I get the test early, am verified that the antibodies are working, and will be paid for it.  Of course since nothing has actually happened all those are suppositions about which I'm unsure but if I can contribute I will.  If I have to get paid for it, I'll tolerate the situation.

I think I'll be stringing a line

On the plus side I got a call from the 2-10 Warranty people updating me on parts the order.  We are getting, I think, a new motor for the 2 year old Samsung dryer.  It only costs us the $75 for the whole visit.  No matter what it takes to fix it from here.  But the part won't be in until Wednesday.  Which means Thursday next week is best case.  Which means we need to either run a line or go to a laundrymat to dry.

I'm going with the line.  The weather is actually pretty good for it now.  Very dry and no rain and sunny and lots of stead winds.  In other words, a drought.  Sucks for everything BUT drying laundry.  I've got some braided line.  Now I just need to figure out a good way to do it.  I think from the house to the planter in the "drainage" bed.
