Why didn't my mother tell me to marry a plumber? We just paid $135 for 20 minutes of work. That's $405/hr. if the plumber can find 3 other easy jobs like ours.
It is a lot of money, but we are actually very happy that our drain clog was nothing more than gunk build up and it was easy to fix. An electric snake thingie, 20 minutes and it drains faster than my checkbook on the C*old*water C*reek site.
$135 for 19 years of build up. We thought it was a reasonable charge if broken down to $7.10 per year. There is an optimistic way to look at almost everything. :)
While the plumber did his thing, I was coloring quilt mystery block pieces to see if I could figure out what it was before I made it.
I still have no idea what this is.
With these mysteries you have to figure out how to put the pieces together and I gave up because I just couldn't get it to work. Do you see anything in this mess?
I am not going to sew it until the mystery is revealed and I can see if it's something I like.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
