Dawg, I don't fix appliances, just meals. Himself is on it, looking for the best deal on the part. Then he has to find a video showing someone replacing that part on a Bosch washer, or else he has to find a way to fix a Bosch after watching the repair being made to a Samsung. When I asked if I'd have to call an appliance repairman tomorrow he responded with a resounding "hell NO!" I might mention that that may have been the first time in a year that he has used a "cuss" word. I seem to use most of the ones allotted to our household...

I Know! I told Himself it's starting...things are falling apart left and right. I told him I want to move, and move NOW, before anything expensive and attached to the house starts to go. If we have to sink much money into this place, I'll feel obligated to stay. And I do NOT want to stay! Sadly, I'll have to tear myself away from DC again like I did when I got the garage sale rolling. Seems I can accomplish so much more when I'm not online. :

Aw, CG, that stinks. Good luck with the washer repair.

Gosh CG. Hurry up and head for the hills of Ohio. Your children are calling you and your heart is telling you to go NOW! If every thing is started to break down, leave before it is yours or Himself's turn. Sounds like Murphy's Law has taken up residence in your home.

Yes I was kind of joking when I said GMO free. I have no idea what they were eating. Most likely corn. Around here there is no GMO free corn.
It was harvested wild by a friend of mine. He gives me a bunch of meat, I make jerky and we split it.
The deer population is huge in places along the rivers. The will take out 10-15 rows of field corn. I have seen whole soy bean fields that look like they were just mowed off. Eaten by deer.

I went shopping this morning. And it is a good thing I took a look at "My Chart". That is a computer program that my health plan has provided to all their patients. I can order new scripts, read the results of any tests, and get notices of upcoming appointments with any of the many specialists I see.

I turn on the program and there is a message that the nurse has changed the time from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. I called and cancelled the appointment. The wound is completely healed and I have to go see me medical team this Friday and to pick up all of my meds refills. All she was coming for was to look at it and change the dressing. I can do all of that myself. Without the aggravation of waiting for someone to come when they say they are. The wound is completely healed and there is no infection.

So off I went to get my shopping out of the way. I bought two beautiful large Haddock filets. I asked the deli man to remove the skin. I get them home and there they are, in all their glory including the skin I asked him to remove. So I skinned them myself. I am now going to lay down and take a much deserved nap. All the meats are wrapped and in the freezer, and the groceries where they should be.

Working on reorganizing my mom's things that my sister sent.
I'll be burning some Cd's to my H/D. Converting VHS tapes to.

Getting to her sewing, craft, jewelry has been a weekend long task.
Still looking for my dining room table. It's all of her stitchery material and especially all the flosses she accumulated is mind blowing. She didn't mess around that's for sure.

I think the most precious thing that my sister put into the box at the last minute was the best of all. My mom had kept for all these years my 2 most favorite books that I read when I was a little girl. My Nancy Drew The Mystery At Lilac Inn,an my Little House On The Prairie. I had thought they were gone forever a long time ago.

Ooo, bagels. The closest we can get to real bagels by us is an hour away, so we took a ride a couple of weeks ago and bought a dozen. Still have four left in the freezer.

I have my first batch of pickles going. I'm just biding my time until we can actually eat them. Last week the little store one town over had fresh pickling cukes that did not have wax on them. Yay! I put them up in my quart crock on Saturday. Every time I go down the basement I smell pickles! I'll start checking them on Thursday, then put them into an old Clausen's jar and shove them into the back of the refrigerator for a month. It seems they mellow so nicely if we let them age.

Looking for another Excalibur Dehydrator that's within my low budget cheap ways. Loaned it to my son who's been endlessly using it.
Wow how much they cost now from when I bought mine a few years ago. It's outrageous.
Should I be charging him a loaner fee?
The counter where it was put sure looks lonely without it.
