This mistake was avoidable.
The tips to solve it didn’t completely work.
Kicking myself but at least I learned from it.
We have a septic system instead of city water and sewer. We use a compost bin and we don’t have a garbage disposal. Nothing goes down the toilet except what is supposed to and toilet paper. Food scraps, grease etc is not put down our sink drains.
I don’t enjoy cooking. I tried to use the leftover Mexican flavored meat added to new meat for spaghetti. I put it in the little red strainer to wash off as much of the taco mix seasoning. I did have a bowl under the strainer and threw that water/seasoning/grease mix outside. I did wipe out the red stainer but WAY more grease obviously stayed in those holes than I would’ve thought!

I paid for premium progressives with maximum viewing area, Digimax® Ultra HD with NeverGlare Advantage poly transition, that came with Crizal no-glare — in a cheap $29 frame and my glasses still cost $600 not counting the $94. eye exam sans picture of the back of my eyeballs.
I’m not saying I’m only emotional around February and March, but for a few weeks, I sure have the time to celebrate and the time to mourn all bunched close together.

The first camera club meeting of 2019 features the theme “delicate” with my favorite critiquer, Jeff Miller. I’m looking forward to this one.
This year my smile seems a little more forced and I’m actually ready to just to go bed. We’ve had losses before, actually, several years close together, we lost family and it all comes more to the surface at Christmas. I still cry about losing Trinity. I know what you’re probably thinking. She was “just” a cat and it’s been 9 months and I should move on. Her death was such a shock and I just don’t feel “merry.” Or, that is not what Christmas is really about. I should celebrate Jesus and be grateful for salvation and the gift of eternity, and the time I have and had with my family. I guess you can’t fully appreciate the mountain tops if there are no valleys. Continue reading
Well, the snowmageddon turned out to be a lot like the December 2017 snow for us, just with a huge difference in what they were calling for.
2017 they called for about an inch, and we got 10″
2018 they called for a few feet, and we got about 10″ Continue reading
