Sometimes a burn in the carpet just effects the tops of the tufts. A little snipping with scissors to trim of the burned tops of the fibers could do the trick.

We have several pieces of carpet in our spare bathtub (our extra storage room) and use a few throughout the house. We switch them around every once in awhile so they are all evenly worn. This may all be moot because we are thinking of ripping it all out in favour or hardwood and in floor heating. Our cement floors are great in the summer but make it hard to heat the place in winter.

I am about to do some gluten free baking - banana bread, zucchini bread, blueberry muffins and cranberry muffins. I do a lot at once because I have to scrub the kitchen down and remove anything that might give off cross-contamination. Even though we don't do a lot od wheat around here, my catering and special diets background makes be really careful. We don't need any more sickness around here!

I just finished lunch, a pork chop and some pasta.
I _should_ go to the grocery store. I need gas (Giant Eagle discount) and groceries. And I know tomorrow they will be more crowded. Especially with a break in the weather. Not to mention the $4.xx/lb crab legs... But did I mention I just had a pork chop and pasta for lunch? And the sun feels so nice coming through the windows... I think I'll just sit here a while...

Go ahead and sit for a while. We'll wake you in a little while.

I just ordered a couple of travel shelves from Amazon. Our favorite hotel in Mexico doesn't have drawers, so we have to stack all our clothes on a couple of shelves in the closet, and it becomes quite a mess trying to find stuff. These hang and are very light. I'd been thinking about how to make/build something like these, now I don't have to!

Let us know how well they work. I like that you can load them and then stick them in the suitcase.

Keeping busy so I don't fret about going back for more testing re: mammogram on Monday. Radiologist didn't like s/thing on one side...time of ultrasound and other tests. Good news is I'll get the results at the end of the 1.5 hour appointment and not have to wait. You know s/thing is not good when the imaging place leaves you two messages in one day. I was told to expect a letter in a week-10 days. I didn't expect two calls the next day.

Loaves are in the oven and smelling delightful. However Monkey lived up to her name and jumped up on the counter (not allowed), knocking over the fresh batch of gluten free muffin mix I just made (divides into 12 dozen) all over the counters, floor and herself.

now to add the time to clean up and make another batch to the time and cost of the first. Oh yeah, and I have to console Violet for me yelling at Monkey.

At least my fur kids keep life interesting.
