Well I am in for a great weekend ken (hubby) just broke the pipe that brings water to the house. Now we have no water



Good god almighty there must be so etching in the air that are making the men in my neighborhood do dumb things. First Ken and the water pipe and I told him not to touch it now the neighbor is up on a ladder with a saw a cheap little one trying to take down a tree. He has both hand on the saw none on the ladder or the branch. Now Ken once at work was using a chain saw on a ladder 15 feet up when he fell. Yep shattered his wrist had to have surgery imagine getting that phone call at work. He at least had the sense to throw the saw or he could have died. Yep the men in my neighborhood are not playing with a full deck this week

Cake, since when does your husband listen to you when it comes to this kind of stuff? Did you at least send him to the store for bottled water?

We have some bottle water but I am used to doing laundry everyday and stuff like that and hello a shower we are using water from the pool for the toilet our plumber friend has not called back. For them it's a 4 day weekend so a lot of them take off.

I did try and dig but that didn't last long. It's really frustrating he said water would be back on by noon then it was tonight now maybe tomorrow. I will text you a picture

I am thinking a hotel room with a hot tub is an even better idea but it's valentines day weekend so everything around here is triple the price. So we will stay home I just popped some scones in the oven.

At my brother's place last weekend, I caught my niece doing something.  She was drinking pickle juice.  And looked at me like I had caught her murdering someone lol.

I told her I thought I was the only one that did that!!  Sometimes....I dunno why.....when my stomach is upset.....I will drink some pickle juice.  works great.....and boy do I love pickles.

from what I read in the article posted.....it helps my colitis too.

cool bananas.....or....well.....pickles!

really??  lol so I'm not the only weird person who does this.

I know in Caesar's (a drink with Clamato juice, vodka, celery stick for stirring, tobasco, worchestershire) a little pickle juice makes all the difference.

Never did get out to get the pickles.......but have a couple hours until the store closes.

And for some reason, I have this craving for apple pie.

I was looking for a quick marinade for chicken breasts that I'd pulled out to grill and saw pickle juice as one so I just poured it in the baggie as it thawed...  It was surprisingly delicious --and oh-so-easy so it has become one of my favorites.  I like to use Vlasic with the chopped garlic (even though I know we shouldn't be indulging in too much garlic w/ lupus).

Pickle juice is also great for charley horses!  IDK how it works, but I'll hobble downstairs when they wake me up at night and chug some straight from the jar.  I have an assortment of muscle relaxers bedside so the fact that I actually get up for this remedy speaks to how effective it is for me.  My father had told me about it long ago and I suddenly remembered it during one of these painful episodes; I didn't believe it'd work because --c'mon, it's pickle juice, but I'm so glad I tried it!
