Too Much of a Good Thing?
I'm also waiting for the repair man to look at my washing machine. It won't spin out. Luckily I found that out when I was spinning out a hand washed and rinsed shawl I made. So, not a lot of water to get rid of. It's about 34 years old and never given me a bit of trouble. Oh, here he is.
Update: My Maytag is suffering from worn bearings and motor fatigue...sounds like me! I may have to spring for a new washer. I'm tempted to get a wringer washer! Ah, no I'm kidding. I remember washing diapers for 6 years (4 babies in 5 years!) and it's no fun standing there hoping your hands don't get caught up in the wringers. Yes it happened to me, but no damage occured.....just some blue air around me. So if the repairs are more than $200, a shopping I will go!
On a more positive note, my gardens are looking good. I planted 3 kinds of tomatoes and a sweet red pepper along with a green pepper. That's the extent of my veggie garden this year. The flowering plants are all looking good. My favourites are the French Lavender. This could be the last summer here as I am thinking of selling the house so I can downsize. As much as I like this house, it is getting to be more than I can handle and I could use the money spent on maintenance on something more fun.....maybe buy me a "boy toy"! LOL
So long for now and the thought for today: Strive to look for the good in every situation. And if you can't find it..........have coffee with a friend! There's always good in coffee! ;o) <3
LATEST BREAKING NEWS: Had a (if I do say so myself) brilliant idea and called my oldest daugther to see if her beau was selling his washing machine when he sold his house. She called him and he said I could have it for taking care of my grandaughter when daughter and beau go on vacation in the Fall. Yay for family!!!
