Jumper cables are very fabulous.
And I just want to suggest that if you don’t have a set in your car, you really should get some.
(and if you do, I highly recommend a set with a long cable because sometimes it’s hard to get the two cars super close to each other.)
I think between Joshua, Lisey, and me, we’ve jump-started our cars at least three times in the past year and I’ve been very grateful to have jumper cables with me!
What made me think of this was that yesterday morning, a neighbor’s car was dead, and I was able to jump-start her with my cables.
In other news, I can NEVER EVER remember the correct order to put the cables on the batteries, and so thank heavens for Google on my phone.
Also, the neighbor’s car had kind of a weird battery and Google helped us to figure out how in the world you jumpstart a battery with that kind of terminal.
How did we ever do anything before the advent of Google??
Zoe and I are trying out a beauty school!
We have appointments for Tuesday morning, actually. I’m just getting a haircut, and Zoe is getting her ends dyed purple (for about half the price of what it would cost at a salon.)
I’ve never ever done this before, but I’ll document our experience and share it with you guys.
(Not sponsored or anything…I’m just wanting to try it out and tell you all about it!)
I like the Dinner Illustrated cookbook.
I’ve mentioned this quite a few times in my menu plan posts, but I just wanted to give it a little extra shout-out here!
It’s from America’s Test Kitchen, and it’s full of main dish recipes, with lots of step-by-step photos. I found quite a few tasty recipes, and none of them are super complicated (all ready in an hour or less.)
Dinner Illustrated is usually available on Amazon for less than the price of one takeout dinner (check for used copies!), so I definitely think it’s worth the money.
You could check your library too, if you’d like to test-drive it first (that’s what I did!).
And that brings me to the end of today’s miscellany.
