That's life!

So every Sunday afternoon after the country line dance class I put a load in the washer. Sunday has become the official wash day.

Later I went to put the clothes in the dryer and I notice the clothes are all wet. Naturally I thought it was a fluke, so I ran the spin cycle again...and the spin cycle doesn't spin! Oh that explains why our clothes are all wet....!"/$%?&*()*&?%

So I spent a good half hour wringing them by hand and it took most of the evening to dry 1 load....

First the dryer doesn't dry really well and then the washer has spinosis. It has been a really good washer; we purchased it in 1992 when we moved in together....so that is 18 years of loyal services. And since I suspect the dryer is going too....

We are going washer and dryer shopping tonight (what a fun way to spend a Monday night!). This morning I had to do a load of whites (we DO need clean underwear) and I noticed that the agitator doesn't agitate !"/$%?&*!"/$%?&!"/$%?!!!

I had to play agitator (that is really good for my tennis elbow...) I hope the store will be able to deliver soon!

On to more pleasant topics....I am on the Glycemic Index diet right now and I have never eaten so much on a diet! I don't feel famished all the time and no signs of hypoglycemia. I must admit that it's not for everyone. You need to cook quite a bit. No problem for me I love cooking and I have some time...

So this morning I made some homemade granola bars GI style.

Here are the wet and dry ingredients and to the left the pan lined with parchemin paper (I just love that stuff, it makes ones life so much easier).


Evryone in the pan!



All baked!!! Now I just need to let it cool and cut in 16 bars. I can bring one with me to work this afternoon!

As you noticed, I'm sure, everything was in Pyrex. Pyrex makes me smile!

Have a great week everyone! ;)

Sorry about your technical difficulties. There are a lot of things I like vintage, but not washing laundry the old way!

I'm interested in your diet. Off to google it!
