At least once a day something happens here that reminds me of the book, “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”. Today it started with my needing a lamp on my side of the bed.
Most nights Vince goes to bed before I do. There’s a lamp on his side of the bed. He leaves the lamp on and when I come to bed, if I didn’t already wake him up, I say “I’m here!” and he turns off the lamp. I never get up during the night but he often does, so he needs a lamp on his side of the bed but I never have really needed one. I do read a lot in bed but it’s my Kindle Paperwhite so I don’t need a lamp.
But, while cleaning, I came across this book, Flour Water Salt Yeast, which I’ve had for several years.
I don’t know why it’s never interested me much before but now I want to read it and there are lots of stories, educational type info – not just recipes but about the only time I have to read these days is in bed and . . I don’t have a lamp.
I thought . . I can add the Google Home Mini so I can listen to music if I’m in the bedroom by myself and, instead of Vince leaving his lamp on til I get there, I can turn it on with my phone before stumbling through the dark bedroom and then when I’m done reading, I can either turn it off with my phone or say “Hey Google – turn off the lamp!”
I knew we had an extra Google Home Mini with a lamp setup that I had planned to take to MO . . whenever that happens next!
I remembered that there was a small lamp in the sewing room that I never use so I went and got it. Plugged it in, looked and it takes a little candelabra type bulb so the Google bulb wouldn’t work. Took that back to the sewing room, got a lamp out of the extra bedroom. Plugged it in . . dang it! It has a small bulb too. Took it back to the bedroom. Went to the other bedroom and grabbed one of the lamps from that room. Yay! It worked.
That was a heck of a lot of trouble just to get a lamp working so I can read a book about how to make bread.
