The weather has turned colder.
Time to get the wood ready for the fire.
We found that the combustion heater needed a few repairs...
A nice big hole had rusted through the steel baffle plate,
Hubby, being the handy man that he is, made another one yesterday.
For $4.00 he bought the angle and tube and the piece of steel plate was resourced from the side of the road somewhere in our travels. He has replaced it with heavier duty steel, so hopefully this will last longer. Saved on the cost of a whole new heater or the cost of a tradesman to do the repairs.
We will be lighting the fire for the first time today as it is getting far too cold now for just blankets.
I need some help here please if anyone knows.
Now I am presuming that this may have been caused by the unseasonal weather we have had in the past twelve months.
I found this orange on our tree along with a couple of others in the same condition. Most of the oranges are still green and look okay, but a few of them have split like this one.
The mandarin tree has also got some ripe looking fruit on it but when I picked one the other day it was very dry on the inside. It is still too early for these to be ripening, most on the tree are still green.
Flowers for Mother's Day
In appreciation from hubby...
Take care my friends,
