Yes, I'm back on my newer laptop. Picked it up yesterday and everything
appears to be OK.
I've stayed busy this week cleaning out kitchen cabinets, sorting through
spices and dried herbs etc., throwing out some which were far too old,
cleaning containers I will keep. Wiping shelves, bottles, dry food
What started all that?
A near kitchen disaster, one I'll tell you about just in case you ever
find yourself about to do what I did.
If you use them be careful . . . . . . . . don't make the same mistake
I did last Sunday!!!
When I took out the glass container to add some seeds to my
breakfast yogurt, I noticed some disgusting little worms crawling
up the inside.
I was so upset and grossed out that in my haste to dispose of the
entire contents, about 6 ounces, I dumped the lot down the
garbage disposal and turned it on. About an hour later Bob
asked me why the water in the other sink - we have a double
sink - was not running down the drain!
Then I realized what I'd done. Chia seeds are so tiny and yet
once wet expand into a huge gelatinous mass. . . . . . .which
they had done in my drainpipe. If you add them to smoothies
and don't drink them quickly you will have noticed this.
It took several hours with a container of drain de-clogger, hot
water, and a neighbor's plastic 'snake' before the clog dissolved
and water gurgled down the pipe again!
Thankfully no call to a plumber and a huge bill.
Are you planning something big for the Labor Day weekend?
We will be spending time watering that's for certain. With no rain
to speak of and continuing high temperatures the garden is sad,
dry as a bone, drooping and dying.
Enjoy your time.
