Disentangling, Dishwasher & Damon

Damon?? Why are they naming snowy weather. We get, on average 180 inches of snow a season. Will they name every single snow storm? The weather people love to make us crazy. We are getting snow, probably up to 10 inches. Good thing I can stay home and not have to drive in it. It's very pretty (from inside).

I spent over 30 minutes trying to disentangle three beaded garlands, one jingle bell light set and a door knob hanger with strands of ribbon in it. I am not a patient person, avoiding any kind of tediously meticulous effort. It was terribly frustrating, but I kept at it, with assistance from the Kittens who were having a grand time batting at all the things hanging down. After I finally got everything detangled, I had to sit down with a cup of tea and some cookies. (My version of a bracing shot of whisky!)

Hallelujia!! The new dishwasher was delivered this morning and I am in hog heaven! I almost kissed the delivery guys and the dishwasher itself. Almost...if the guys looked like Johnny Depp, I would have. But they were more like ugly Mutt and Jeff (no offense intended to them, they were very efficient). Once my son and hubby get it installed tonight, I might just pull up a chair while it goes through its wash cycle. Too much??

Back to decorating. And I am planning on trying another new thing....drying orange slices for a wreath. What can possibly go wrong?

Must fly. Robin

I'm glad you can stay indoors as well. There is something to be said for being "your own person"'s called choices. I can commisserate with you on your dishwasher. Ours began to sound as though it was eating the dishes rather than washing them. We purchased a new one but it was a week until they could deliver the new one. Once they brought it, installed it and I had run the first load I felt at peace with the world again.
Ain't it grand just how much help kitty's are with decorating??????
Stay warm and dry, Oma Linda

Oh gosh. I hate untangling those Christmas lights and garlands. Hard as I try to keep them neat when taking them down, they still find a way to get tangled. One year I got so disgusted I went out and bought new lights.

Glad your dishwasher arrived. That will be quite a help to you.

Hurrah for the new dishwasher! I'm getting my new refrigerator tomorrow! And a new cellphone!

180 inches of snow a year? *faint*

I love my dishwasher. But I know the day will come when I won't have one and will have to clean the dishes the ol' fashioned way. I am having a window put in over my sink!

Everyone's getting a dishwasher but me lol. Just stopping by to say hi. Your blog makes me smile. But in all seriousness, meteorologists really do need to stop naming things. It's beyond unnecessary. It's snow. It's gonna be here for a few months. There's nothing "extra" enough about that to give it a name.

Over here it's the Norwegians that names the storms but they only name the really big ones. So tomorrow night Alexander will hit us hard. They change the predictions every hour and as worst even we here inland would get hurricane winds, at the moment it's just strong storm winds :-)

Have a great day!

I love that you might pull up a chair and watch. Too funny!

Glad you got your dishwasher. How nice to have two men to install it for you!
