Is it possible to have ‘car lag’? I think that’s what we’ve got. It’s going to take a little time to recuperate after our journey. Meanwhile, we are in Orange County and we have all sorts of errands and chores ahead of us. Rest will come later.
We had lunch with my cousins yesterday. There’s a new restaurant in the neighborhood featuring crepes. I had the Italian–very tasty.
Doppler came along so we ate outside, though it was a little chilly for that. It’s much too early for me to complain about the weather.
You find a lot more restaurants with outdoor seating in SoCal than Connecticut. That stands to reason. It’s part of the appeal.
You know what, if I ever complain about the weather here, call me out on it.
We did some shopping for appliances. We’ll need a washer, dryer, refrigerator and a grill.
I know a grill doesn’t seem to rise to the level of the other three… but it does.
Our Connecticut dryer was electric. Here it will be gas. Is that better or worse? I don’t know.
Our Connecticut grill used propane bottles. Here it will be connected to an outdoor stub off the house’s gas line.
A new phrase entered our world yesterday, “counter depth.” That refers to a refrigerator that is the same depth as standard kitchen counters to give the impression it’s a built-in model.
Counter depth refrigerators are a little smaller… and more expensive. Someone will have to explain that last part to me.
Right now the money is flying out as if there’s a printing press in my tush!
Last week at this time we were watching the moving truck get packed. And now, here we are. Still a lot to do.
