So this week the solar panel got attached to the roof (thanks to Robyn's husband Keith for the extra hands) and the electrical is all hooked up except for three things. I need to put in the fuses, add a grounding wire/rod, and I need to connect the inverter to the breaker box. I also need to have an electrician come and check it out before hitting the go switch.

Then the weather decided to go all winter on me, so I moved to an inside project. The tile in the kitchen is now grouted. I still want to put a bead of caulk on the bottom where the tile meets the counter, especially on the sink/stove side, but I'll wait a couple of days to make sure the grout is set.
Part of me likes it better before grout, but it might just be that I'm used to it that way.
And finally, I got the Christmas lights started. Need to pick up one more string.
The heater is doing a marvelous job keeping us warm. And the wind has yet to knock over the house, so we are doing good.
