The next honey-do was to replace the handle on the toilet. I just did this about a year ago, but you know how those cheap plastic parts and pieces just break ... well that's what happened here. THIS time I decided to go for an all metal one. Amazingly, it was very hard to find ... in fact, Home Depot only had ONE!!! With their installation instructions, which were only meant for plumbers that do this every day, it took me 45 minutes to figure out how it worked. I'm happy to announce that it flushed and works fine!! So ladies ... you too can have the satisfaction of a job well done!! Personally, I think it's easier to have a handy husband!!
As one of my readers, Jan Mains said yesterday ... a pound of chocolate would probably make my achey muscles feel better. How did you know??? Not exactly chocolate, but a pound of English Toffee should do the trick. This easy peasy recipe came from a girl I used to work with. She knew how much I loved it and would hide pieces in my desk every time she made some. It was yummy!!!
As you all can probably guess, I'm about as good at making candy as I am at cooking ... but this one came out really good!! Shocker, huh?? Once cooked, you pour it on to a cookie sheet, let it cool slightly ...
Then cover it in melted chocolate and nuts!! It was just what the doctor ordered ... 4 pieces later I was feeling full of energy!!! Maybe if I eat the entire batch today, I'll have enough energy to wash the second half of the rig!!!
