Had a lovely outing with friends. A member of my club’s board invited the board to go out on their sailboat. We motored around Ventura Harbor and some not quite ocean areas, went out to lunch and then to the Chanel Islands National Park visitor’s center.
Fun with family and puppy play date. Our son and DIL are dog sitting nearby and we’re told the dog would welcome a play date. We went over for a lovely lunch and hours of watching two dogs have a very happy time playing together. Our pup then had the longest afternoon nap we’ve seen yet!
Our replacement upper dishwasher rack arrived and is installed! This means we don't have to deal with buying a new dishwasher and getting it installed yet. The dishwasher came with the house 5 years ago and might be 7 years old if I’m interpreting the serial number right. The replacement bottom rack is still on back order and a recent email said it would be 2 weeks before the manufacturer supplied it.The total cost for 2 new racks was under $200.
I finally made a plan for power outage preparedness. Bought 2 more plug in emergency lights to replace old ones. We already have many of the things on my essential list but there are quite a few things to make us more comfortable if an outage is prolonged.next to buy is a propane single burned stove to use outdoors and the solar lanterns with one having device charging capability and finally two headlamps.
