Well, Hubby's not well, and getting a covid test later today, so that's my day. Other than the usual chores, etc.
We use the word "ruthless" to be "without mercy", and yet, nobody ever uses "ruthful". That's possibly b/c nobody wanted to be seen like that in Olde English language times, when "ruth" began ----- as rue (regret) mixed with Viking-esque "hyrgth" ---- stuck together to be "rue-gth", then ruth. Lacking regret, in a nutshell.
BUT "ruthful" was used before 1800, thouogh most commonly from 1300-1600. After Shakespeare's time, we let it go.
Pantry moths are deterred using bay leaves. I knew this all my life ---- we taped a bay leaf by its stem, to the lid of any given container, or to the cupboard doors. BUT if you do get weevils/pantry moths? Clean with white vinegar, install bay leaves, and added tip: Wipe off every food container with white vinegar before you put it away. The eggs and coccoons can stow away on glass/metal/plastic containers. Is it a big worry? Only if you live in the US South like I do, b/c the little buggers are common as dirt. I hate 'em. Now, I grew up in the Big Cold, so I have no idea why my family always used bay leaves to deter them, but hey, it works, and it's so much easier than "pheromone traps" (I tried those once. Never again. Way easier to toss the infested stuff, wipe all down with straight white vinegar, and buy a ton of bay leaves.)
And Dahlia just got penned up by Dixie in the Morning Turf Fight. Today they're battling for control of hthe cat flap door ot the catio-porch. *sigh8
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
Ours is dying. We can't get the replacement part due to supply issues. So we're stuck.And on that note, all this could be avoided if *certain* people (ahem, hubby) would *LISTEN* to their wives about not doing stupid things, but there we are. You know that section of a manual that says "REGULAR MAINTENANCE" and you should do it? Yeah, he never gets to that part. And he overloaded our freezer...
