Well, well, well, look who showed up after not posting for ten months! It's a bit like my favorite math cartoon by Sidney Harris, "And then a miracle occurs."
here. And here are other cartoons by Harris).
At any rate, it's been quite a year. I've been cocooning, sucking my thumb, reading tons, watching my favorite shows and going for long walks, taking a trip to Austin (yes, the one in Texas), helping with a bathroom tile job and other tasks such as painting walls, doing crossword puzzles with my husband and pretty much any other activities I could think of in order to forget what's happening to the United States (and what we're doing to other countries).
But now and then I would have an idea for something I wanted to share with everyone here, and I would try to remember to file those ideas away in the vault in my subconscious. Unfortunately, it's a faulty vault and most of the ideas have leaked away.
One that didn't was this way to give solar lights a new lease on life. I have a sunflower solar light that had gone dark, and we thought we were going to have to toss it. The trouble was that the solar collector had gotten cloudy and couldn't do its job. The simple solution (found online, of course) was to apply clear nail polish to renew the collector. I didn't have any of that, but we had some varnish. I have to say that I was skeptical, but miracle of miracles, that really did the trick. Now we're back in business with a bright sunflower every night. So yes, "and then a miracle occurred..."
Have a great day! Enjoy the sunshine (if you have any), and as always, happy reading!
