This & That 9/14

:: More joys of home ownership this week. A short while ago, we got our water bill and it was twice what it should be. We determined it was from a leaking flush valve. How? The food coloring test. Put a few drops of food coloring in the tank of the toilet. Wait 20-30 minutes and check the toilet. If there's color in the bowl, you have a leak. Ugh. Not a fun science experiment. So we shut the water off to that toilet (fortunately we have two others) until we could get the situation remedied. Thanks to my parents and a family friend, we didn't have to wait long. A new one was installed last weekend. Hooray!!

:: Last Friday, I got off work a little earlier than expected, so Sean and I had an impromptu date night. By date night, I mean dinner out and then grocery shopping. Are we getting boring?
Not us, but could have been.

:: I need to go shopping for clothes. And my mom and dad gave me a gift card for my birthday for this purpose. I just haven't been motivated to do so. I don't enjoy clothes shopping. I know, that's weird. I really just don't like trying things on.

:: The brewery where I work part-time currently has a gruit beer, which contains no hops. Instead, the brewer used backyard weeds -- creeping charlie, prickly lettuce, and dandelions -- in the bittering portion of the brew process. It sounds weird, but it's really quite tasty and refreshing. And it's called Baby Groot. Heh.

What's on your mind this week?


  1. I usually just memorize my sizes or make really good guesses and order online. Things usually fit haha. If not, I send them back. There's always more of a selection online too.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as Kristin! I like shopping online especially from stores that I know what my sizes are. If it doesn't fit, I just take it back to the actual store.
