I am back!

I could not get to place to write my blog. That is now fixed I think.

In the last few days we have been snowed in, although my daughter went to work and was on call. Our dryer was not drying the clothes. There was heat but the clothes would not dry the first go around. We cleaned out the lint for every load. We checked the out door vent and it had frozen lent on it. My daughter worked on cleaning that out and she bought a kit with special brushes. She took off the back of the dryer and cleaned that out. Then she went to the wall and unfastened the hose and used the vacuum cleaner with the hose that came with the kit. That did it and it is now working.

We played cards when my daughter was home earlier. We worked on getting my daughter's room for stamping in the basement ready. She has lots of stamps and materials and paper, so we put together some storage containers. She wants to hold a Stamping party this month. Today in payment for my daughter taking on call for a co-worker, the co-workers husband came and put together the desk we gave my daughter for Christmas.

During the storm my daughter had to snow blow twice in the evening. The next day while she was at work I thought I would go out and shovel. The pile the plow had left was hard to remove. The man who has a business across the road, and clears his driveway and parking lot with a small tractor with a plow offered and did clear my driveway. Good neighbors are a blessing.

The whole dryer thng is a pain but I am glad it got fixed. We have great neighbors too. In fact, Bree and I are working on a basket of goodies to give to the neighbors who always give her a ride to school.

Good neighbors are both blessing and joy. We had a great neighbor when I was a kid. He mowed Gram's yard whenever he did his own, and he always kept our walk and driveway clear. Gram paid him in cookies.

Glad you got the dryer working, good friends and good neighbors are nice to have. God has blessed both you and Dr John.

I am glad to to read your neighbor cleaned out your driveway, one must be careful at any age when shoveling snow. It can be heavy especially when a snowplow has anything to do with it.

I really can relate. The dryer at the other house we rented was very slow. I was really glad to get ours out of storage when we moved here. I just wish my stepdaughter would learn not to use high on every load and clean out the filter. Hopefully the snow will end soon for you. Good thing you have a wonderful family.

Frozen lint! That is cold!!!! I have been wanting those special cleaning brushes for the dryer. I have read a lot lately how most home fires are from the dryers not being cleaned well enough.

It is too cold here to snow! Doesn't make sense but it is! LOL!
