I was asked to make a cake for this hunt camp last week....the Black Donald Hunt Camp. I don't even have any idea where it is....way back in the bush somewhere. Anyways, the local radio station was coming for a visit and they wanted to celebrate. The station goes around to all the different camps and interviews the hunters...talks about the camp and their tradition of the hunt.
I bought a new machine on the weekend but it won't arrive until tomorrow and a week without doing wash here would be a national disaster. And I have no time to go in to town to the laundromat....so I just keep putting in a wash and messing with the buttons and hoping that something will happen.
Yesterday it refused to spin. I had a large wash of all farm stuff...big stuff that I couldn't ring by hand. I just put it all in 2 baskets and took it to the clothes line. Dripping wet. Then I thought the line would snap with the weight....but it actually didn't! And the sun came out and it was nearly dry by the end of the day!
After that episode I went in to Home Depot to get a sink for the kitchen. I had measured our sink cupboard at home and it was 36"....so I figured that was standard. Sinks are a pretty big deal for me. I have never owned a dishwasher. I would rather wash by hand. I have some big pots and pans and baking sheets so I love my big sink.....but I can't take it with me when we move so I went and bought a big beautiful sink.
And I came home and looked at the drawing for the new kitchen and saw that the cupboard is only a 34".
And today I will return my big beautiful sink and buy a regular sink.
And I will never wash my big cookie sheets again....without getting water everywhere.
And I did a wash again this morning with that machine...just a small one with clothes that the girls need. I washed it twice because there was no rinse....and no spin. I wrung it out with my hands....and it's on the line...and here comes the sun!
And it's my birthday!
Funny how I don't make my birthday public on my Facebook page but it only takes one friend to wish me a happy birthday and it all blows up. Everyone knows. There is no hiding anything on Facebook!
