Another rainy, cold day in Dublin. Got out and ran errands. Just driving around town in the rain, alot of ponding on roads and yards. The ground is so saturated with rain from previous weather events that I did not even go and see what our 'underground pool' in the back part of the house looks like. The rain was resistant today, so pumping out the water would just re-accumulate. We had to endure two weekends of cold weather before the heating and air installation were complete. Now, that we have central heat, we are very comfortable and happy at the Capt. Hardy Smith house.
We went out for some pasta at Johnny's New York Pizza, a restaurant on the west side of town on Bellevue ave. The restaurant walls had familar poster pictures of 'Gone With The Wind' and 'The Wizard Of Oz'. We finally found a place where I can get my pasta fix in Dublin. I was having pasta withdraw since moving here in April. The food was excellent and so was the service. We will be returning for future meals. Since we don't have a working kitchen yet, we go out alot for our meals.
Tomorrow, the stairs for the storage in the back part of the house will be built. A competing home improvement store will secure the last part our of lighting needs. That competing store is not located in Dublin. Once we secure the purchase of the last of our lighting/ceiling fan fixtures, the electrician can install all the fixtures we have in the next few days. The Capt. Hardy Smith House will really light up. I am so excited. What a transformation this house is undergoing. Once we get to a point where the house is ready to welcome visitors, a Open House will be announced. Thank you in advance for your patience.
We went to the local 'Piggly Wiggly' store tonight. I remember 'Piggly Wiggly' from the 70s. When I first moved to Dublin, I told John, I got to buy a 'Piggly Wiggly' t-shirt. I liked my first t-shirt so much I had to buy another one. I plan to turn heads by wearing it where people never heard of it. A great conversation starter :) John purchased a 4 bottle pack of 'Frostie' rootbeer. I have never heard of it before. Truly unique.
It is getting late and time to retire. Thanks for reading my blog today. Continue to visit for what I am up and with the house.
