I want to let you in on something that is on its way to being HUGE!
That’s just the kind of gal I am.
Wanting to make sure that you are in “the know.”
That something is:
Have you heard of it?!
I could tell you about it all day,
but you just need to check it out for yourself!
You can start with this clipboard that I put together about repurposed doors.
I AM winning my war against the mosquito.
You probably would not be able to tell by the 2 giant welts on my arm.
But, the fact that I have been spending a LOT of time outside,
and I only have 2 bites,
is totally AMAZING!
I am not sure why I am a mosquito magnet?
It probably has something to do with the amount of sweets I consume. . .
“Sugar” is one of my favorite food groups.
It was a banner day in yard sale season yesterday.
Yet, my biggest score has left me in a quandary.
You see I like to work in “3′s.”
I have 3 girls,
I was born on the 3rd day of August,
I have lived in 3 cities. . .
You get the idea.
I broke one of my cardinal rules of grocery shopping last night.
My kiddos are having movie day at school today.
This means that they are allowed to bring a drink and special snack.
So, in a moment of weakness. . .
. . . I bought a can of Pringles.
(Such a delicacy is usually saved only for our annual beach trip.)
When I arrived home with them,
I quickly made up 2 baggies of the dried potato goodness.
The problem then was,
the can had been opened.
Once the can is open,
it is all over. . .
I wish I could invite you to a garden party this week.
I would make a fudge pie.
Along with some sweet tea.
I don’t know exactly how I would set the table.
I know I would use my blue dishes
and, my grandmother’s green glasses.
I have a few ideas on the centerpiece. . .
I like sweet tea.
Let me rephrase that. . .
. . . I LOVE sweet tea.
As a child, I went straight from milk to sweet tea.
My mama packed in my thermos every day for lunch.
No Kool-aid for me as a child.
I have never read the book,
How to Win Friends and Influence People.
I know that Mr. Carnegie offers some great advice.
But, I feel confident that somewhere between;
“Offer genuine appreciation.”
Should have been;
“Bake Aunt Lois’s fudge pie.”
Because if you are wanting to win friends,
(or bribe your children.)
You need to have this recipe.
I think shopping for a rug is the equivalent to
shopping for blue jeans. . .
You need the item,
you just can’t seem to find one that will do?
I have been rug shopping for a year.
On and off.
Why couldn’t I find a rug (or jeans)?
1. I am cheap.
2. I measured and remeasured trying to find the perfect fit.
3. I wanted something basic, yet with personality.
4. Did I mention that I am cheap?
I used to pray for twin boys.
Oh, the fun they would have. . .
the mischief they would get into. . .
the great laughs they would share. . .
I have no feeling in my pointer finger. . .
One of the hazards of spray paint.
Forget the toxic fumes,
or the detrimental affects on the ozone.
No one ever mentions the dangers to the trigger finger.
