Well, the day is almost over and I haven’t frozen yet. Taking a shower wasn’t too bad. Sitting on the toilet . . not so good! That rascal is freezing! Accuweather tells me it will be 26 tonight and feel like 13. I’m hoping they mean it will feel like 13 outside and not inside my bathroom. This is the only time I wish I had carpet instead of tile in my bathroom. I can feel the cold floors even with slippers and socks on my feet.
Here are some things I think worthy of sharing with you all.
1. For Thanksgiving, I made this Cranberry Gelatin Salad. It was so good! I had mom and Vince taste it on Wednesday night and we knew it was going to be a hit. I bought the stuff to make it again this week. The Watergate Salad has been my favorite for years and years but I think this Cranberry Salad may be my new favorite.
2. My bathroom drain has been slow for months. I know why . . I trim my hair and it goes down the drain sometimes. I used Draino and everything else I could find and it helped a little. Dad asked if I knew my drain was slow and I told him I’d tried everything. Vince had said he’d pull it apart soon and clean it out. Dad told me to put a couple of Alka-Seltzers down the drain, then pour Coca-Cola down the drain and that might help. Did it last night and sure enough . . it’s draining just fine.
3. I was reading something recently that if you have hard water stains or rings on appliances/fixtures, you can put plain white vinegar on them and it will remove it. Down in the bottom of my toilet was some sediment that was hard and wouldn’t budge when I clean the toilet. I poured a couple of cups of vinegar in there, let it sit overnight and then scrubbed and . . all the hard stuff is gone. Toilet is perfectly clean.
I’m probably the last one to know these tips but just in case someone else didn’t know . . hope it helps.
