Charging Stations

One of the best things about living in an old farmhouse is the generous number of electrical outlets. And if you believe that, let me tell you about the nice lakefront property in the Sahara Desert I'm selling. Seriously though, plugging in is a real challenge here. For example, one of my kitchen outlets is hosting a slow cooker, the dehydrator, 2 vacuums (one for bare floors, one for rugs) and our wireless router.

There are 2 other outlets in this room, one for the refrigerator/microwave and one for the coffee maker/stand mixer/blender/coffee grinder/stick blender/slicer/electric knife/food processor/aaaahhhh! I guess I have too much stuff!

Daisy on the other hand is living the simple life. She can recharge anywhere.

  1. I grew up in a farm house built just after the Civil war and electrified sometime after the Rural Electrification program was in full swing. Growing up the bedrooms had one light socket located on the side of the ceiling mounted white porcelain light fixture. The kitchen was about like yours, but in the 60s we had far fewer electric appliances.. Over the years my electrician brothers made it all safe and added a decent number of outlets. Mom especially was VERY grateful.

    If you find yourself with time on your hands, check out my "Lie like a Dog" post from last June. Your pic of Daisy immediately made me think of that.


Tell me what you think, what you know, what you want to know. I love your comments! I read them all and will try to answer any questions.
