Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
I have nothing up in the house, and outside I have one batch of lights on a shrub at the front corner by the driveway. I have another string I'll put up on cup hooks over the front porch, and some things to put on the mantle, but that's all.

Under the category of "It's always something," today the Universal Power Supply failed the self-test; the unit has a five-year warranty but 1) I can't remember exactly when I got it and 2) I filed the information away so thoroughly that I can't find it now. And that warranty probably doesn't cover the batteries for the whole time.

I don't go for the low-end replacement but will happily replace two of the company brand batteries in the correct instead of paying 30% more to have the company's batteries linked in a way that has the same result - two batteries installed in one unit. A comparable brand is available locally but cost $12 more each. If it were an urgent problem then I might, but I can wait a week for them to arrive.

The next fence panel is on the radar; I have cat sitting coming up next week and I use that cash for projects that I am doing incrementally. I'll load the lumber in the garage and paint on the weatherproofing there before taking down the next crumbling panel and putting this up.

Thanks for the compliment Donuel and Charmion - though I must disclose that I'm soon entering the Bionic Woman phase; knee replacement is looming in early 2020. :-/
