Drying Out . . .

Well the rain is gone for a day or so, at least. But it’s supposed to be back for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and on through the end of next week.

Oh boy!

I checked Amazon today and found they finally had the .380 caliber laser cartridge

LaserLyte Cartridge

for my Laserlyte Training System back in stock.

I got the 9mm one when I got the Target System right before Christmas, but the gun store was out of the .380’s, and so was Amazon.

So since Amazon got them in first, I ordered it from them. Should be here Friday.

Fun, fun, fun!

About noon I started another batch of my world-famous (well, I think it’s really good) Chicken Tortilla Soup. I already had the poached chicken breasts in the freezer from the big batch I did last week, so I just started the chicken broth in the slow cooker and added the spices and a can Rotel Habanero Tomato Sauce, and let it heat up.

As soon as it was hot, I dropped in the frozen chicken breast halves so they could thaw out.

I thought I might add some carrots so while things were getting started, I chopped up a couple and precooked them a little in the microwave before adding them in too.

While that was working I looked at the no heat problem with the Splendide washer/dryer. Before I did anything else I wanted to be sure that my dryer vent wasn’t clogged. If it is, the lack of airflow will cause the overtemp sensor to shut off the heat.

But unfortunately, the problem couldn’t be that simple. So it looks like I’ll have to go ahead and pull the washer out of the cabinet when I replace the door switch. Like I said before, I was hoping to avoid that. Oh, well.

A little after 4pm I added the fresh Pico de Gallo we bought the other day, and about 4:30 we were ready to eat.

The soup turned out really good. Even Jan had a second bowl. And we’ve got plenty for leftovers. YUMMM!

Tomorrow I’ve got to get an early start because I’ve got a 10am appointment with a client I haven’t seen since last year. Always like repeat business.

  1. Yeah, those French are really something. As I recall, they did not want our planes to fly over French air space in the first Gulf War.

  2. hello,

    I just stumble upon your blog via a forum.
    I saw that you had a problem with wordpress you had disabled your blog when you post photos of that trip.
    I’ve had the same problem on Tuesday whereas I have a nail art blog!
    I was wondering how did you solve the problem? Because I still have no response from wordpress as I sent them an e mail Tuesday evening and I began to despair of finding a solution ..
    Thank you very much for the time you take to answer me.

  3. Melanie,

    I never found out the reason.

    The blog was disabled by WordPress, and after I emailed them to ask why, the blog suddenly reappeared.

    I was never given a reason, and I never heard back from them.

    I would just keep emailing them and hope for the best.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
