3 Updates

Here are 3 small updates to recent projects:

[1] First, an update to the laundry room extension of the Downstairs Hall Cat Platforms.  I built the cat platform extension so Birdie could access an elevated litter box in the laundry room [inaccessible by Bonkers].  On Sunday I went to Petco and miraculously found a covered litter box small enough to slide into the space between the washer and the shelf above it.  The best part?  It’s raspberry colored [at least the base is], which matches the laundry room walls!  Total accident.  It came with a swinging door, which I’ve removed for the time being.  Birdie hasn’t used it yet, but I’m hopeful she will…:

Tonight Birdie walked towards it, like she might check it out, but instead was more interested in the bridge outside the window:

[2] Next, an update to my “Well, I can Cross “Electrocute Myself” off my Bucket List!” post, which described the replacement of 2 mis-matched dimmer switches in our living room with matching LED dimmer switches.  At the time of the posting I had been unable to find a switch plate cover with 2 rectangular bays and one toggle switch bay.  However, I found one on Amazon – Woohoo!  Here’s how it looks [the dimmer switches look cool at night]:

Before I found the wall plate on Amazon my Dad had a good suggestion, which was to replace the toggle switch with a wide toggle instead, thereby allowing me to buy a 3-gang switch plate cover with all rectangular bays:

Which are much easier to find.  By the way, “wide toggle” switches are also called “rocker” switches, “decora” switches, or “quiet” switches depending on where you look… very confusing.

[3] Finally, an update to my “An Evolution of Hair” post.  My hair – it’s growing!  That’s the update 🙂

91i        91j

Slowly, but surely… By next Fall I should have hair… I miss having hair… I have no regrets about shaving my head – it’s very liberating.  But I miss having hair.  I even have hair dreams!  *sigh*

    maybe if you turned the litter box sideways, it would give Birdie a feeling of privacy. This probably makes no sense, but it’s a thought.
    Re the light switches with the green nightlights – very cool.
    and the hair – progress! Also cool!

  2. Luv the dimmers at night, Dad
