This is the exact kind of heating/ac unit that is in mom's apartment. As far as I know there is no way to lock it or block her from adjusting it. Obviously she needs to be able to adjust it up or down, if she's too warm or too cold, but I'd prefer she didn't turn it off completely! I'm wondering if I put a note AND maybe put some black tape across the off button, she will stop turning it off all the way.
It's always something new to figure out with her now :)
Dh's best buddy's wife mailed him a package he got yesterday. It's a box to make a gingerbread house...she's having a contest where dh and her hubby each have to make one, one their own, on the same day, only using what's in the box and no help from the wives. No cheating. Dh reads the instruction in the card and the first thing he says is "oh....there WILL be cheating involved" LOL. Within 10 minutes he had all his cheating planned out, haha. I'm not sure what day this event will happen, but I'll be sure to take pictures of the end result ;)
So, I didn't make cookies yesterday, but it will happen today. First I want to get some flowers ordered to be sent to dd to congratulate her master's degree. I was trying to think of a gift to get her, but with birthday and Christmas soon and gifts given/to be given, I decided I'll order a bouquet of flowers to be delivered.
One other Christmas thing I've wanted for a long time is Christmas bedding for our king sized bed. I ordered a duvet cover years ago, from an ebay seller, but didn't realize the shipper was in the UK and apparently their king sized isn't the same as US king sized? whatever, it was too small, so I ended up using it on one of the queen sized guest beds. I think I'm just going to find an inexpensive Christmas quilt I can lay on top of my current duvet cover and call it good during the holiday season. I don't want to spend a ton of money and I see some on Amazon under $30.
I see the movie "Where the Crawdads Sing" is now on Netflix, so I definitely want to watch that. I read the book and dd also read and saw the movie in theater and said it was a good one.
Has anyone ever ordered flowers delivered from Amazon? I didn't realize they offered that.
