Everything but the kitchen sink

Everything was working this weekend...but the kitchen sink. Which clogged when I had just made a pot of chili. I must share that it is not wise to drain hamburger grease in the sink. And yes, I do know better.

It clogged while the family was over. They left smelling of Drano.

Kitchen sink

I thought the week would start out hectic. I thought I would be spending Monday morning calling plumbers and trying not to look at the stack of dirty dishes and piles of dirty laundry. Oh the joys of a washing machine in the kitchen.

But I didn't.

It all worked itself out. The clog. The cleaning. It's all free and clear.

And so goes my mind too. Free and clear.
Anything clogging up your life these days?

Glad all is well this morning! I just have a foggy brain today, it doesn't want to clear out. So, I shall try to get moving now and see if I can manage to accomplish something today! : )

Have a great day!!!

Much love!

Oh I know better than to put stuff down the sink that I shouldn't but have done it too:) Happy you got it all cleared up! Have a blessed day my friend! Been missing seeing you here!

It's Monday so OF COURSE my brain is cloudy! LOL!
OK...question...where are you supposed to drain hamburger meat? In a container like Bacon Grease? I always run a lot of water afterward but I've probably done irreperable damage....oh great!
Just to make you feel better here's my "freed" story. I'm single and live alone and don't have a honey around to do a lot of things. My house is also 75+ years old so things are gonna break. My back door (Double French Doors) wouldn't lock last week b/c my house had shifted on the pier and beam. Until my repair man could come I blocked my back door with a chair, with the back of the chair lodged up under the doorknob. I've seen that on tv but I wasn't sure if it was going to work. Thank goodness no "burglers" came by!

Kim, glad it cleared itself up cause plumbers make more money than nurses! This story reminds me that my mama used to keep a grease can in the kitchen so she could dispose of her grease later but nobody does that anymore.

Oh, the joys of plumbing in old houses! We have to treat our kitchen sink very delicately. Working hard to de-clog my brain lately ... not sure how much progress I'm making.

I love your dishtowel curtain....velly velly much! Don't you love disasters that involve STINK!? I had my last big one on the day before Thanksgiving last year, it involved having a septic tank pumped, and the whole process dragged out a long time...heh!

I pour grease down the sink but always while I'm running really hot water at the same time.

Sorry I haven't been out and about lately.
