Laurie, the cup of oil. Been there, done that. I hate it when that happens.

SO and I have both done this in the past. Good to know I'm in good company.

DH and I are washing my car and trying to get the salt marks out of the carpet.
Soap and water is not working. If you have any ideas what might work please let me know. Thanks, Jo

I use vinegar to get it off my boots. Comes off like a charm.

Just got back from the deli in the town center with an Italian sub for lunch. This has become a routine for Friday lunch. The sub is soooo good!

DH took a brush and rub the salt loose and then he took 1/2vinegar and 1/2 warm water and rubbed this in. Some of the salt came up but he will have to have to do it again hopefully to get the rest out of the carpet.

Good luck with that carpet JoAnn.

I decided to play around here to rest my legs a bit. Long, busy day, with a few more things to do. But I enjoyed stopping by for a bit - see you all when a get a real job around here accomplished.

How many nurses does it take to screw in two light bulbs? Just one with the assist of two cats...

Good seeing you pop in CG. We look forward to the next time.

I am trying to figure out what supplies I need to finish this cake for tomorrow. I am having a very bad fibromyalgia flare and with the pain and fatigue from that, combined with the heat from the weather and the oven, I haven't been having an easy time of it. Thankfully it is a fun and not too difficult a cake. I don't think doing a fussy wedding cake would be good right now, but except for the size of this one, the sandcastle is pretty straight forward.

TB will do my last shopping tomorrow for whipping cream, etc. - all the things I have to do last. The cream is for a ganach filling in the turrets. I feel this will stick better than buttercream or any other filling. I also forgot to get the ice cream cones for the tops of the turrets.

But when TB comes home I get a treat I have been waiting all day for. He purchased a small inflatable hot tub to help me with my aching muscles and it if is warm enough we will try it out tonight. Hey, even if it is a bit cool I think I am willing to give it a go! It is only about 3 feet deep, but I am able to get in okay on my own. There are no seats but we have a small stool that will work for me. I love my hubby!
