Curtains and other ramblings
The two curtains I ordered for the hallway windows arrived. These are different than the fiasco for the long window in the hallway. I love them! It's hard to see, but the sun hasn't been shining. I have ordered a new curtain for the other window, so stay tuned on that.
Pipes are thawed. However, we had another flood in the utility room. It stumped us, as it wasn't when the water was running to the washer or sink in there. I told my husband it looked like it was coming from the wall behind the sink. I told him the last flood we had. We opened up the wall (thankfully we made an access). The hose coming from the salt softener came loose and was leaking.
Guess who is off work today just to fix the leak? Yep. Sigh. Water has been shut off until then, so I am glad we had the jugs filled. Plus, Daughter K brought home more drinking water just in case.
My Amazon curtain (rag) has been labeled on on the way to return. What a mess. It took two trips to buy printer ink (forgot it the first trip). When I put the new ink in the printer, it automatically prints an alignment page. Had to do that twice to get the darn thing to print. Then the label printed blank. Finally got the label and my packing tape malfunctioned (must have been cheap tape). Finally got it all done and wrote them a review. What a hot mess.
I still need one sheer panel for the front door, but that can wait. I have lots of new ideas for the kitchen in the way of updates.
The snow finally stopped, so we may be cutting more firewood today if the leak project goes smoothly. Soup beans are going in the crockpot this morning.
Ideas for revitalizing and energizing yourself (cont.):
41. Contact new people
42. Do something for others
43. Take charge of getting involved
44. Give the other person a break
45. Don't criticize and blame others
