Great timing today. I was at the door enjoying the sunshine when the delivery van arrived and the driver kindly lifted the box over the step and into the hallway for me.
That's the hardest part, since it's not only heavy but too big to get a grip on. The hefty drivers just pop it on a shoulder and trot to the door with it. I struggle to get it indoors to unpack even after I've opened it and ditched the freezer pack, which weighs a couple of pounds itself.
But all is well. It's complete, in good shape, arrived early afternoon.
Today I added in making stock from the trimmings which I've been adding to a bag in the freezer. I wash all the produce before cutting, so there's a minimum of grit in the trimmings, always good for stock.
I strain it twice anyway to he sure.And I have a couple of quarts of stock in the freezer now. The picture of which won't load, but okay.
On the food front all's well. On the household front not quite so much. A kitchen outlet suddenly stopped working. I reset the nearby GFCI, and it didn't work. Hm. Moved the microwave and toaster oven to a different outlet. Worked.
So maybe there's a screw loose in the dead outlet. If ever I see Gary again, I'll ask him to look. I've exhausted my electrical knowledge. Haven't seen him in a couple of weeks, so I hope all's well with him.
When the new light arrives to replace the one with the faulty clip, I'll get in touch. But I think I'll bite the bullet and get the plumber for the plumbing issue. It's not complex but it's strenuous, I don't want to impose.
There's a new arrangement where I can return the old light without wrapping it. I got a code, one of those square things, which I have on my phone, take the light and parts to the UPS store locally, they scan the code, accept the light and pack it with other returns. Then eventually I get a refund. If it works, great.
Now for my Friday salad supper, fresh from the Misfits box, a picture of which I can't load, oh well, you've seen a salad before.
