Discovering how the elections work in Canada with other homeschoolers.

Baking and smoking

I’ve been quiet the last few months.   I guess I am trying to juggle a course, blogging, homeschooling, and more at the same time.

Winter is gone and spring is here – even though it is quite cold still in our city.   But I see the end of the dark tunnel of winter and can hardly wait to smell the tulips in May.

Apart from that, I have finished my first course for the Social Media Certificate I am doing.   I got 98%.   WoW!   I wasn’t expecting this.

On another note, my oven is experiencing some problems.  Last week, I asked my oldest to put the croissant in it while I was going to do some exercises.   After 20 minutes, I came back up and it hasn’t been done.  So I asked him: “Why haven’t you put the croissants in?” He answered that the oven had not beeped to indicate that the warming period was done.  I checked.  He was right…   Grumble.

So I went to dig our invoice and we had an extended warranty on it.   So I called.   Someone came on Thursday afternoon and it turns out that the element was toast…  we got a new one.   Great now I could do the baking I needed to do.

On Saturday, I mix my cake and start the oven for the baking.  Within 10 minutes, the oven was beeping – code F10 – and smoke was coming out of it.   Great!  Needless to say the cake wasn’t cooked in the middle and the top was burned.

So I called again.

Monday I received a call from the company which will send the technician.  They are baffled.   So he is coming this afternoon!

We shall see what will happen with this.

Praying for a new oven… *grin*    but I am realist too.

My little Sparkies….

Repaired!

After months of going back and forth with the company who sold us our sofas AND the vendor of the company which made the sofas… we finally had closure on our issue.

I have written about the fact that one of the sofas had a spring that broke and ripped the material in the back of it.   According of the paperwork I received with the sofas, I should have a 5 years warranty.   Since the sofa is only a couple of years old I decided to call.   I got told that the warranty was only 1 year and I hit a wall.   I decided to fight about it.   Send a registered letter about it.   It got the wheels going….

2011_01_23_14_14_26_0009

Last Wednesday after waiting a month after the confirmation that repairs will be done, a business in town came to pick up the said sofa to proceed for the repairs paid by the company who made the sofa I think.   It took a while but at leas they came to pick it up…   Problem was the material was discontinued.   Honestly, I just wanted to spring to be repaired and the material to be sewed up somehow…

On Thursday morning, they brought back the sofa.    And check it out…

IMG_6608

NOTHING.    You can’t see a thing about the break and destroyed spring.    I am SO impressed with the work done.

The work was done by Al's Drapery And Upholstery Factory on 1177 Brookfield Rd in Ottawa.  Their phone number is 613-733-4444.

Looking forward for a ride with the four-wheeler at the Maple Bison Farm last week-end.

Jesus, Satan and technology…

I saw this on someone facebook page the other day.   I remembered seeing it a while back.   I think it is cute and worth being published…

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hear...ing all the bickering.
Finally fed up, God said, 'THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job.'

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.

They moused.

They faxed.

They e-mailed.

They e-mailed with attachments..

They downloaded.

They did spreadsheets!

They wrote reports.

They created labels and cards.

They created charts and graphs.

They did some genealogy reports .

They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell.

Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off....

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld.

Jesus just sighed....

Finally, the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming:

'It's gone! It's all GONE! 'I lost everything when the power went out!'

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.

Satan observed this and became irate.

'Wait!' he screamed. That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?'

God just shrugged and said,

JESUS SAVES ...

Bubbling Maple sap – to become syrup!

Unhooked

I know that I have been unhooked for over a week.    When we got back from Toronto, we had internet issue for a whole day.  Then on Wednesday my husband kidnapped my laptop to upgrade it.   Actually, he had to do a backup before he prepared a new to me laptop with a bigger hard drive.  

So I am uncertain when I will get the “new” laptop…

Knowing my husband I know the set up will be perfect.   It just takes time.

Besides, we were out yesterday visiting a Maple Bison farm.   We had a blast learning about making maple syrup and doing some four-wheeling….

I promise to post the A to Z on gratitude and the pictures on their respective dates when I get the laptop back.
