Hello, my name is Dotty and I haven't used the dishwasher in 6 days. I hate washing dishes by hand. It's no fun at all. I called the parts people first thing Mon morning and because I accidentally let a tiny plastic ball go down the drain, I can't reassemble my dishwasher pump until Feb 25th (!!!!!). The repair kit containing the new impeller doesn't include this plastic ball which I have to pay an extra $5 for. I complained to my sister and she suggested that I either use disposable plates/utensils or let the cats lick everything clean. She is no help.
And some good news... After searching for 6 months, we've finally purchased a replacement for hubby's ancient & ailing '93 Jeep. It's a shiny Toyota Highlander complete with all the bells and whistles. Who knew that heated leather seats would become my best friend? And it came with bonus items like an orange crayon, 1.5 goldfish crackers, a bookmark, a 12" plastic ruler, a penny, and something squishy & brown that I could not identify (it looked organic). I got to drive it this week while my Subaru was in the shop. It feels like a cruise ship! Hubby threw his bike in the back today and he didn't even have to turn the front wheel up. Looks like we'll be able to pack the entire house into the back of it when we go camping this summer.
I made a little mitten this week. A friend is making a quilt and she's appliqued mitten shapes to the blocks. One of the colours in the quilt top is this soft green which matches some leftover yarn that I have. I offered to knit a mitten for her to use as a label (or to hold the label) on the back of the quilt. It's really cute!
The sun was out for a little bit and Ricky was doing his solar powered kitty thing.
I think he wants me to skritch his chin.
