When Life Gives You Lemons

This 30 year old blender is one of Eli's "perfectly good" house hold items. Except for the minor detail  that it's missing the stopper for the lid.

So, when I get home from a long day in the office ( Sam, drop what you're doing! There is a red light blinking on the copy machine!) and I just want a boozy blended beverage on the back porch, instead I get ice shards and lime juice shooting out of the top like Old Faithful.

Luckily, I was in MacGyver mode and spotted the perfect plug on the kitchen counter.

Sometimes, when life gives you lemons they're exactly what you needed.


  1. Great idea - and although you might see your blender as outdated, I think it's charming!

    Your work day sounds a lot like mine, except usually the printer is jammed or an errant letter in MS Word was bolded or italicized. Sigh.

  2. DJ : oh girl, I totally get it!

    And luckily I'm a fan of anything "vintage" so I get quite a bit of joy out of this old blender.
