Finding porn in the silliest of places…

My front porch

If you don’t know already, I live in an older house, no one is sure when it was built, we venture to guess it was probably in the late 50’s or the early 60’s. I have had some serious issues since I moved here. All of which I have slowly fixed…thankfully I have had many friends and helpers over the nearly three years since I have lived here that have helped make this happen. It has been a long road, but a good learning curve for me…I can fix a lot of stuff I never would have been able to before living here, mostly out of necessity….but still applicable, none the less.

It’s a lovely old house, that suits me perfectly. It is funky and functional at the same time, it has the original hardwood upstairs. I have totally renovated the kitchen, and all

The Kitchen before me....

the flooring in the basement has been redone, due to the continual flooding I had until this spring when I could finally afford to get the perimeter drains around the house fixed.

For two years my house had the nickname…

the Lake with a house on it…

I have an acre of  land, and I live right by the river, so there are certain times of the year when my yard can be very wet…add 4 feet of snow melting, or the sometimes torrential downpours  that last for weeks, and no drainage…you are gonna flood. So now we got that problem fixed, all good. Never mind the flooding basement when my hot water tank blew up..don’t get me started on that. It doesn’t matter now, it is all warm and dry, thank the Universe.

So anyways…on with todays story.

My dishwasher wiring has been hooped for about a year, it was added after the house was built, so like pretty much everything else here, it was

The finished product...

mickey moused together. I am getting all the work that needs to be done finished as I have the house listed and I am planning on moving. This is the last project that I have to fix.  So when we first hooked up the dishwasher to the existing wire three years ago, it went fine for a while, there were no issues at all…and then, all of a sudden it would just stop working, randomly for what appeared to be absolutely no reason…

Now what I didn’t know was that the dishwasher was hooked up to a light switch in the basement, that also turned on the garage door opener and turned on the light…yes…you heard me right.

So you see, what started happening, was when it rained, or got really cold, the dishwasher wouldn’t work…I pretty much thought I was losing my mind for a while, when one day, by fluke we figured out it was hooked to the light switch, and was somehow shorting out…nice.

I had an electrician come in, and disconnect. Obviously, I don’t want to die in a fire when my house burns down. I have had the dishwasher hooked up to a manual plug that I plug in whenever I need it. It works fine that way, but is a pain in the ass to plug in every time, and never mind the fact it looks like hell.

I would love it fixed, but just can’t afford it right now. So in comes my lovely and multi talented boyfriend William… He is fixing it. He is a wire guy, he is going to hook it up the way it should be hooked up. Thank god for small miracles.

There is a shelf in the basement where the wiring would, in a perfect world, go down to, so he took the shelf off, to get up into the space, now this is where the porn comes in….he reaches in, and low and behold…

Oh my god...how funny is that?

The hole in the roof...

What have we here?

And yes.. the close up…now you tell me, why someone would think it was a good idea to hide their porn in the roof above the shelf? My call is:

A) You were ripping apart the basement during the day when your wife was at work, and decided to take a porn break. She comes home unexpectedly, you race to the laundry room pulling up your pants and quickly stash the video in the only place you can think of…

B) Think you are a pretty funny guy, and during your renovations, take really lame video that you are never going to watch again, and stick it in the roof, so in a few years from now, when someone is renovating your shitty wiring  job they get a bonus porn.

Well dude….thanks. But I don’t even have a freaking VCR anymore, I might have appreciated the gesture more if you had left me the VCR too, so I could at least watch the movie for a good laugh, don’t ya think?

And todays soap making went well, I am making Lavender this time…it is a lovely purple, Rosemary you will be glad to know there will never be Spam like soap in my house again…

Me making soap...

Here is a sneaky pic William took when I started cooking… and some of the soap and how pretty it is :) I will let you know if I finally have the damn recipe perfected or not. I think my OCD is back and kicking just fine though…. as soon as I finished this batch, I wanted to make more, but I unfortunately don’t have enough lye. So I have to go restock up on that soon… I must say though, I truly think practice makes perfect, I mixed the color in this

Lavender Soap...mmmmm

time, like a lunatic, I wasn’t going to stop stirring the crap until the color was totally mixed in, the biggest thing seems to be persistence…I don’t think you can over stir it, which was what I was worried about with the Spam soap…and I let it cool longer before molding it, so the fragrance isn’t going in when the soap is still so hot… because that seems to eat the smell right up. And that ticks me off, buying fragrance is fucking expensive. I really don’t think it disappearing works for me at all….

So there is my third blog of the day, what the hell is that all about. We are pretty lazy today other than the soap and the wiring, my love is reading his book, I am waiting for our ribs to cook…we have no kids home tonight, so I am thinking, I am outta here for a while :)

Have a great night everyone!!!
