Hold Steady The Light

    1. Yes Hubby is handy and yes I have learned patience. As another follower just commented, he has done this job and he admits this job is IMPOSSIBLE in the dark, yet he and his wife did it too. This job was INTENSE!!! 😉

    1. You sympathize with Hubby? Wait a minute! Just like a man to do so! What about me holding a flashlight for THREE hours? I must admit, however, that this job was INTENSE. 😉

  1. Good job, Amy (and hubs). It’s hard enough working in the confined space of those panel boxes, but doing it in the dark is impossible. I’ve had to add neutral bars to our panel box, and I didn’t want to do it with the power on or in the dark. I enlisted the Editor’s help.

    Love the photos – it seems fall is coming and at least one handsome squirrel is getting ready.

    1. Only someone who has experienced this job, Dan, KNOWS how intense it is!! Bless you and THANK YOU for this comment! I passed your words onto hubby who said he got the “goosebumps” when he heard you too did this job with your “editor”. The ONLY way to do this job is to have all power off which you well know. I hope I explained this job good enough. This was a very complicated post for me to do. As for my photos …. THANK YOU! ☺️☺️☺️

  2. Another hearty laugh from me 🙂 Amy and Hubby’s excellent adventures! So glad it all got completed and everything is humming again. Just a suggestion for you and hubby for future jobs that come up…Head lamps are a must to save the arms and they are worth every penny…Have a happy weekend….Much love…VK ❤

    1. Hubby does have a head lamp and at one point, no make that a couple points, I TOLD him I’m quitting this job and for him to put on his head lamp! LOL My arms just about fell off, VK! SOOOOOO happy to hear that you laughed. I worked “hard” to bring across humor in this very complicated post! Happy weekend, dear friend!! 😘😘😘

    1. It is SO hard to keep your arms up and extended for a long time, Holly. I’ve had my share of yelling at too, believe me, but that day, no. Your Hubby IMO needs to understand how difficult it is to keep that light shining steadily even though the arms are on fire. He needs to give it a try! (smile) Much Love to you!! 💝💝💝

  3. Nice job and I’m sure that it saved some money, too. I got one of those head straps with an led light attached to it. It makes working with limited light much easier. Your photos of the onset of fall are beautiful!

    1. Hubby has a headlamp as well, Rob. But he was insistent that I helped with a flashlight because the headlamp would not have been sufficient for this job. His hands were moving all over the place plus it was a very limited access in which he had to get his fingers into. You can be sure that I did mention the headlamp a few times when my arms were about to fall off! As for my photographs, thank you so much! I really have not had the opportunity to get outside much with my camera because it has been raining so much here. Hopefully in a few days these weatherman are correct in that nice weather is coming which will afford me to get out and start shooting Fall Foliage. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Another thank you for taking the time in reading my post and for commenting. 💕😚💕

    1. LOL@Eddie! We have more than enough on our hands as we attempt to keep up with the repairs in our own house much less doing jobs for other people. Too funny! Peace to you, dear friend! 💕🌹💕

    1. LOL In other words I lost you. Tee hee. Truth be told, Prag, IF I had read a post like this prior to what I did with hubby, I would have been lost too! It was a great learning opportunity for me!

      I haven’t been out and about much because there has been so much rain here. I hear the weather is going to improve so I will be getting glorious Autumn colors in the landscapes. THANK YOU for the compliment on my pictures. 🍁💞🍁

      1. Well you didn’t lose me 🙂 I read through with great interest, the moment I saw the squirrel picture, I forgot everything else. As if life happens in the background so busy and you manage to scout and share the beauty of earth with us. You are so very welcome.

  4. You did an amazing job here. I think not only your hubby but many men could not have done it. What a project. You are such a skilled allrounder, Amy. Your hubby is blessed. But I think you would rather work 10 hours in the garden than 3 hours as an electrician …💖

    1. THANK YOU, Erika! My husband is amazing in all he can do. Once he gets moving that man does not stop! I know to do many things, dear friend, many of which I usually don’t speak of. I just do them! This was just too good to pass up so yeah I did talk about this, and to throw a humorous slant to this story as well. Oh yes I would much rather be outside then being an electrician yet the thrill of using my hands is deeply instilled me as well. I learned a LOT by helping hubby. 😘😘

    1. Now that’s a really good idea, John. I actually don’t (yet) own a camera light and hubby having a head light said it wouldn’t be good enough for this job. Hence, my arms falling off for a good cause. Instead of a dinner, we are celebrating by planning a bike ride on a path that runs parallel to a local river here that is really beautiful. ☺️

    1. Barbara, I’ve learned to use humor to my advantage when life throws rotten tomatoes. I’ve also learned that when I see life through a humorous lens, that experience is not so bad as it could be. I love that squirrel picture too. Hubby laughed so hard when he read this post and got to that squirrel picture. LOL Much Love to you! 💞

  5. Awesome story! Love it how you two work together! I have in my possession two head lamps for just such occasions! They really come in handy! And then there’s the sump pump . . . . . Great photos, the tool descriptions are cool!! Thanks for sharing! Much love to you! Donna

    1. Ah, the head lamp. Yes hubby has that but he claimed it would not be good enough for this job and I can honestly see why. It was a tight space to get his fingers into and his hand would have actually blocked the light from a head lamp. I am SO glad you enjoyed this post, Donna! I learned a lot helping in this job. I honestly was surprised by how relatively easy this job went compared to past jobs I have assisted hubby with. I never know with that man. LOL Much Love to you!! 💖💖💖

  6. That’s what makes a relationship work. Both giving 100% equally sharing and loving and serving. Well done to you and well done to your husband! My only wish is that I had one of those handy husbands around sometimes as I’m usually the one trying to do most of the work by myself. But I’ve been doing it for so long, I almost don’t even know how to ask for help anymore. 😀 I really enjoy reading your sweet posts Amy. Hugs! ❤

    1. Hi, Melissa. Being married to the man I am brings along with it many challenges, yet when we intend to work together as a team, we do it. He goes overboard in wanting to everything for me to the point I must say … no, but I want to do this! I like using my hands and figuring out how things work. When I get stuck, I do ask for his help then. I’m just so glad you enjoyed reading this post, a post that was quite complicated for me to put together. Much Love to you!! 💖

    1. Oh yes that type of work is quite challenging! The most favorite photograph in the series that my husband said was his was the squirrel as well. He just couldn’t get over the picture of that squirrel! Have a great day, Amy! 💕😎💕

    1. Oh yes I LOVE that squirrel picture as does hubby. He keeps saying “oh that one must go up on our walls” to the point we will be running out of walls. LOL I’m just so happy you stopped by and spent some time here today, Resa. BIG HUGS for doing so!! I so appreciate you!! 💞🍷💞

  7. Job well done by both of you Amy 😀
    For another time of work without light, you should buy a head lamp with LED, they are cheap, also in battery and work very well. Much love to you and your photos are beautiful ❤

    1. Hubby has a headlamp, Irene. In this case due to the space where his fingers had to go into (VERY small), and because his hand would actually be blocking light from a headlamp, I had to hold a flashlight above where his hand was working in order to give him light to see by. Much Love to you!! 💞💞💞
