Crisis Averted

Seeing these laying around is usually not a good sign.


Now, see this?


Do you know what it is? Yes, that's right. It is the cover to the top of my mixer. My kitchen tool extraordinaire. My heart of the kitchen. My kitchen buddy. My friend in the kitchen. My kitchen pal who really knows how to carry her share of the load. Sigh.

I have been after my darling husband to take a look at my mixer for quite some time now. Take a look aka fix it. See, the mixer works, just the arm of it has been loose. So, when I would go to use it, I would turn it on and the mixing would begin, but it would not perform that great since the arm was kinda loose and shaking about.

So, when I used my mixer yesterday I thought maybe I would just throw that idea out there again. Ya know, just a friendly
reminder. This clearly was the reminder that rang the loudest. Or maybe he was really just trying to get out of making dinner......

The flashlight was needed to assess the situation and to then find all the little bitty screws that needed removed.

The screwdriver then made its appearance and the work quickly began.


This is the part where I begin to get a tad worried. What? You have to take all those parts OFF to get to the screws that need tightened? Really? You cant just use a REALLY long screwdriver? Oh, its the angle in which the screws lie that is the trouble....okay. Well, Ill be over here if you need me. I cant watch.



In the end, everything was fine. The pieces all got taken off, the screws got tightened up, and the mixer was put back together.


It was a bit worrisome while I sat away from all the work being done. Hoping that everything would go back in its proper place and then work once it got there. Turns out, I shouldnt have worried. Once again, my mixer works like a dream....

Ugh, you just took pictures of a surgery. How could you look at the guts of your baby like that, and not swoon?

I'm glad it's recovered. You're a good mixer mom.

Hey, I recognize those hands.
Funny, though, I don't see any secret messages this time. I feel kind of disappointed about that.

Glad your magic mixer is mended.
He's so talented, that man of yours.

I love my mixer as well. I have never had a problem with it becoming loose. Nice to know if it happens that it comes apart. Glad it is back to working.
