I was really amazed how much the arils from one pomegranate weighed. That is all the is needed to make this delectable pomegranate jam, together with some fructose, a pinch of salt and lime juice.
We have been chasing a leak in our roof for quite some time now. The problem is, you only know the roof is leaking when it rains. And you cannot fix it until the rain stops and everything is dry. At first the rain coming into the house was attributed to where the roof over the utility room was meant to be. But when that went up, the leak did not go away. It was of course less than before, which meant no puddles of water in the house. The join was sealed, flashing was put on, and a very messy paint job was done. And still we had a leak. At first Dave thought it was due to the direction of the wind, and one small section still not properly sealed. But this has been attended to and still its raining in the house.
I should really say dripping so understand I am exaggerating slightly. We had a long summer with very little rain, which is the norm for us. And then winter arrived with a proper storm. It was only then that we realized the leak was far higher up on the roof than we thought. And how did we work that out? Well, it was dripping ice cold rain water on us in the shower. It explained the wetness Dave had seen on the shower floor a few weeks back when it had rained during the night. And now at least we can tell the builder where on the roof he needs to do some sealing work. And at the same time I am going to get him to tidy up the messy painting job.
