I’ve been trying to figure out what to do to hide the water fountain cord on my patio. I have to plug it in up high where the outdoor light is.
Yesterday I took Charlie and went over to Kendra’s house. He seems to enjoy running around her yard with her two dogs. And run he did. Then he’d come sit in my lap for awhile to rest, and then run some more.
I sat and watched as Kendra and 16 year old son Riley worked on her deck. She had a brand new circular saw and was learning to use it to cut her deck boards. Made me a little nervous, as she was learning while she worked. She’s braver than I am.
The two big blue pots arrived and I took them to her to drill holes in. The fountain also arrived, but I’m not quite sure what to do. No matter what, the cord is going to show as the only place to plug it in is in the light socket to the side of the patio door.
I had the thing-a-ma-jig that you put in the socket instead of a bulb, which transfers its use to an electrical outlet. But the black cord is going to hang from that against the light colored wood.
One of my neighbors had an outlet put in by an electrician. But at some point they’re supposed to work on the wood on the wall, and it’s pretty rotten. I’m just not sure about having that done while the wood is like that.
My only other choice is to just adhere the cord against the wall and try to ignore it. But you know that would be hard. It would take away from the pretty fountain, which I made sure worked.
It called for distilled water, which I didn’t know till I read the brochure about it, and I didn’t have any. So I just poured regular water in it to make sure it worked properly.
Well it’s sort of a dilemma. Not a terrible one. If I think and think on it, maybe I’ll come up with a solution.
I have the plants to put in the two big blue pots, but I will wait on the two rolling plant caddies to get here before I start filling them with soil and plants.
Do you have any plans for the weekend?
