Tuesday, September 14, 2010...Wahoo...The Breaker Panels are Switched...
Today was about 62 degrees and overcast most of the day...perfect for diving into the swapping of the electric breaker panels for the potting shed. I removed the wiring from the little HomeLine, six slot panel and installed a twenty-two slot panels in its place. It was three times the physical size of the original panel, but I needed to swap it out because the one in the potting shed is the distribution panel for the garden pond, light pole, barn and now the hospice gift shop. The little six slot HomeLine panel will be more than enough for the gift shops lighting, receptacles and fans. After completing the installation of the huge box, I went to the gift shop, where I mounted the little box on the wall and installed all the ceiling boxes for lighting and the fan mounting boxes. Tomorrow I will start on the drilling of holes and the pulling of wire to the boxes and panel.
Lynda and Vick worked on tie-dyed fabrics this afternoon. They are both having the time of their lives creating artwork stained glass sconces and colored fabrics for other art projects. They are forming a little business called, "The Two Recycled Chicks". What a cute name for two sexy artist chicks, working together, which are creating really beautiful art pieces. They will have quite a few really nice pieces of artwork to offer at the church sale on October 23rd in Greenville.
Thursday will be our Vermont run this week. Suits me just fine to go up there on either Thursday or Friday... doesn't matter...I love the trip and spending the day picking up product for the Saturday Farmer's Market. We pick up cheese products, apples, honey, and maple syrup. Now, it is about the time to be looking for Indian corn, pumpkins and cord stalks.... Halloween goodies you know... They will be a high priority on everybody's list of fall decorations. Vick and I love to go to Vermont in the fall. We love the crisp, cool clean harvest winds carrying the smells of autumn in the air. New England is at its best in the fall...simply the greatest place to be in the entire USA. I dream of having a Thanksgiving Dinner in a New England Bed and Breakfast, after spending the a night, having breakfast and spending the day shopping at quaint little shops in their quaint little town, returning for another evening and night in the Inn and heading home the next morning after breakfast. I always thought it would be so beautiful to spend Christmas Eve at a New England Inn to some day. How lovely it would be to walk the streets as carolers sung songs of cheer and the towns would be all lit up. I guess Vick isn't the only person who lives in a Currier and Ives world!
This is the little box that was in the potting shed, but is now in the hospice gift shop.
This is the new panel in the potting shed, which is now the distribution panel.....
