I got a call yesterday from the company that is installing our new electric heating system. They want to change the install date, which created an issue with the timing of the oil tank removal.
I sent off a message explaining the issue, and got a quick response saying they could remove the oil tank on Monday.
I got a call early this morning asking me if it was possible to remove the oil tank today. A firm yes on that!
Two fellows arrived this morning. They capped the line to furnace, cut through all pipes and removed them, removed the oil tank, and filled the holes left by the pipes with spray insulation. It was quick, and clean.
The oil tank is gone. Soon we will forget it was ever there.
What a relief!
Now we wait for the installations to begin.
I’ve seen the surgeon, and the hospital will call me with a date for my procedure. Hopefully they will be able to shed some light on all this nausea and pain. Hopefully none of the possible complications with the procedure will occur, and no errors will be made with my anaphylaxis. The surgeon is aware of both.
Now I wait to hear from the hospital.
This week I have been spending my mornings sitting out on the back porch. How lovely it is in the mornings, as it is shady and relatively cool. The birds are an endless source of entertainment, so many dramas, so much song. The garden is lush and growing fast now. The sunflowers are taller than I am, and the covered brassica tunnel is no longer visible on the other side of the fence.
This morning the first purple bloom on the clematis emerged. It is dark purple and so pretty beside the lovely pink roses on Granny’s Rose.
The kitchen was a busy place most of the day as well. A loaf of bread was baked. Dried beans were cooked in the Instant Pot. The beans will be an ingredient in one of our meals this weekend.
It is supposed to be very hot and humid this weekend, over 30C, with a humidex up to 38C. I am hoping to sit out on the porch in the early mornings to enjoy the sunshine, garden, and birds. The afternoons will find me sheltering in the house with my thermostat.

And oh what a feeling it is!
