So this isn't really strictly gardening related, but I wanted to share something funny with you that happened at home today.
A bit of background... I'm mostly in charge of dishwashing at our house, and although we do have a dishwasher, I don't tend to put pots and pans in it at all. Thus I end up washing lots of pots and some pans by hand, and stacking them, often rather precariously, to the left of the sink on a tea towel to let them air dry. We likely should just invest in a dish rack, but why spend our extra money on that when the tea towel does just fine? And after all, I am an expert stacker...
So today, my husband was getting a pan from the pile of now dry dishes to the left of the sink. (because I also am expert at putting off putting away dishes) I hear a bit of a commotion in there, and there he is, picking up the slow cooker pot from the floor! It overbalanced (he must have removed a critical part of my otherwise perfectly balanced dish stack) and fell to the floor, and even (thankfully!) emerged crack free! WHEW! :) Guess I'll still have that slow cooker when I need it next fall for prepping applesauce to can! (See, I even managed to tie it all in to the garden!) :)
Current dish stack status - mostly single level pots - I think I'll be playing it safe for the next couple of days!
