a) I really like timers. I have three in the kitchen…which I guess is not too odd. But I also use a timer in the piano room, playroom and bathroom.
b) I go out of my way to avoid appliances with digital displays or anything that requires batteries. I even unplug most things after use because I believe energy is being wasted even while it is off. I could be wrong of course (my husband thinks so!), but I’m not convinced.
Timers are my friend because they tell me when things are ready in the kitchen, when my son’s 1 hour of video game playing is completed, a 5 minute shower is up and when my daughter’s done with her 20 minute piano practise. I could not live without them.
I feel cleansed for sharing. Thanks.
