Written by Sue, Saturday Sept. 26, 2020 cloudy, showers temps. 70's
Have you ever wondered why appliances break down on the weekend? Yesterday as we were getting ready to run errands I stepped into the shower, no hot water, needless to say it was a quick shower, when you don't have hot water you realize just how much you use!
Since it was Friday and most people only work half days or not at all on Friday, I reconciled that it would be Monday before it was fixed! Not so with Dh, he thought he could pick the heating elements up and fix it himself, the clerk told him he could but if he had no experience he could flood the floor. After talking to daughter, she knew a plumber friend who could come and fix it.
He indeed came about 5p.m., found that both elements and thermostats needed replacing, it took about 30 mins. and, he didn't flood the floor, just a wet towel.
Whew! that was a close one, I did get my hot shower and a good nights sleep.😌😓😉
Most of you who visit my blog, know that I do a lot of preserving of fruits and vegetables. I use lots of lemons in baking, food preserving, and for health reasons, and they are not cheap.
Our local Food Lion put large lemons 3 for $1.00 on sale last week compared to 79 cents each.I jumped at this bargain.
Once juiced, I used a Krups electric juicer that is twenty + yrs. old and still going.It made the task so much easier.
I poured them in ice cube trays,and froze them,
I even canned a few half/pints.
My canning season is winding down for 2020, it has been a very busy season, due to the circumstances we are now facing I felt I needed to preserve more, as I went to the grocery stores and found the shelves more empty than the week before! How about you are you finding shortages in stores?
You know me I asked why, and was told that stock wasn't coming in as it should,workers were calling in sick, they knew they could not get fired because of Covid 19, and people were hoarding. It took me weeks to find toilet paper, paper towels, and alcohol.
That's about all for today, I am planning to add a few more touches of fall to the farmhouse this weekend. Since the weather has cooled in our area I lit my new fall candle yesterday, it smelled wonderful!
My thoughts and prayers are with the Prayer March in Washington D.C. today, please join me in praying for our beloved country, leaders, and for unity! 2 Chronicles7:14
Have a great day,
