The last 48 hours have been adventurous around my house. Two days ago our washing machine stopped working mid-cycle. It would fill up with water and agitate for a while but it wouldn’t drain. I thought maybe it was our incredible heat causing the washer to overheat and stop functioning.
I also have one malfunctioning sprinkler zone in my front yard that needs to be repaired. Because of the aforementioned heat, I have been hand watering the affected flower beds. Okay, “hand” watering is a stretch. I’ve turned the hose on and let it run for a while. I did that at lunch time yesterday, for example. Unfortunately, when I cam home from work I instantly realized that I had not stopped hand-watering. There was water everywhere. Oops.
