Good Morning, Everyone!


How was everyone's 4th of July?

I'm not into fireworks, so I spent the 4th watching the third season of Stranger Things on Netflix. Plus, my town had their fireworks event on June 28th.

It wasn't a great week for me. The central air (a.k.a. the air conditioning) kept shutting itself off every 20 seconds on Monday night, so a repairman had to come in on Tuesday afternoon to fix it. Let's just say it was really hot in the house by the time he showed up. The good news is that the broken part only cost $10, but with labor it was over $100. At least the central air unit didn't have to be replaced, unlike what happened with the hot water heater the previous week.

I guess bad luck comes in threes!

The washing machine drainage pipe goes through the bottom of the east wall, turns into the garage, and eventually turns again and goes in between the two concrete blocks that the hot water heater sits on. Then it goes straight down into the garage floor. Thanks to the hot water that leaked out of the old water heater last week, the seal for the PVC slip union that connects two of the pipes together had broke; which basically means when the washing machine drains the water leaks from the where the two pipes are connected. Luckily, I do know a thing or two about plumbing, so I was able to fix it myself.

FYI: My sore throat was gone by my midweek, but I currently have three canker sores! Yay, me!



What Am I Currently Reading?

I flew through Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I'll post a review for it sometime this week. I took a short break from reading on the 4th to watch the new season of Stranger Things. My next read will be 1,000+ horror epic "IT" by Stephen King. I've owned an IT paperback for many years but I've never gotten up the nerve to read it. The 1989 miniseries scared me to death when I was a kid and I never got the courage to watch the second part of it until I was a teenager. I had rewatched the miniseries a couple of years ago and it's not as scary as I remember it to be. And, of course, I've seen the 2018's IT movie. This will be the first time I have read IT. I'm in a horror mood as of late, so it might not take me too long to read the novel.

   

New Blog

Speaking of horror, I made decision to give my post series "Midnight Horror Review" its very own blog  https://midnighthorrorreview.blogspot.com/. I'm not for sure if I'll get a domain for it. Currently, I'm posting snippets of the original Midnight Horror Review's posts from this blog, so I'll have enough content for about three weeks. The blog doesn't have any followers yet! 

UPDATE:
I've decided to delete the new blog because maintaining one blog is enough "work" for one person. Therefore, I'll just continue posting Midnight Horror Review posts right here on this blog.

    1. I'm not a fan of clowns, which is the main reason why I was scared to death of the miniseries. I'll probably start reading the book sometime today.

  4. I've never seen Stranger Things. I'm not into scary books and just the name Stephen King sends a shiver up my spine. I hope you enjoy It. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
