Oi Vey. What a couple of busy, crazy days! At least yesterday and today have been full of sunshine . . . even though the temps have stayed cool. Only in the 20s yesterday and today. But with the glorious sunshine our solar panels are cooking on all four burners and our storage batteries are being fed their fill.
As a prerequisite of our summer of remodeling, we've been working on our electrical circuitry (well, not OURS but our house's) and I haven't had use of my computer much today. Because of everything going on, I am completely off schedule having no sense of any routine today at all.
I did manage to get some Poppy Seed Bread made and baked but other than that no usual, daily homemake-y things have been accomplished. (Half the bread will go home with our daughter tonight and the other half has left the building already.)
Had to post a picture of our granddog, Tucker, as it's his fifth birthday today. Happy Birthday, Little Pooper (as he is affectionately called by Chicken Mama). He was not very cooperative in wanting his picture taken because I called him away from his post intently watching a deer walk along the outside of the fence.
Our manual roller/flaker arrived yesterday. On the website of the company we ordered it from, they talked about the best made, highest quality one (the Marga made in Italy) and the fact that there were copies being made and sold as "just as good." They even gave the names of a couple of the knock-offs.
Um-uh, wait just a darn minute here. The manual hand-cranked roller/flaker we received yesterday was NOT the Marga we ordered, but one of the "other" brands. Needless to say, we are trying to get this situation straightened out. I just hope the company is a reputable one and we didn't get taken. Stay tuned and I'll let you know what's up on this.
Okay, time for me to get back to whatever it is I'm doing that makes me feel I'm not accomplishing much. Just one of those days . . . what time does it have to be before it's okay to have a glass of wine?
