Price Of Gas

I noticed that gas prices have been coming down.  Who sets the price of gas?  Do you think it is somehow controlled by the government?  I don't know why it goes up and down as it does.  Just four years ago gas was about half the price that it is now.  Back then we thought prices were high and now we are accustomed to high prices.  Why do we look at the recent price drop and think it's so great?  It is still well over $3 per gallon.  That is a terrible price.  I hope it continues to drop in price.

Christmas Lights

This year we didn't hang as many Christmas lights outside.  My husband was happy about that.  There have been years that we probably over lighted our house so this is a nice change I guess.  We have neighbors that still put hundreds of lights on their home, some that are multicolored.  They look very nice but I am glad those lights are on their homes and not ours.

It's that time of year!!

It's that time of year!!  I've started my Christmas baking!  There are trays of cut out cookies and kringla in the freezer now.  Those are the two kinds of cookies that can be so time consuming.  It feels good to have them done.

Where to find pandora charms

I sure enjoy my share of jewelry!  Recently my youngest son got married.  I was out shopping for the right jewelry to wear to the occasion.  I had a gal who knew where to find pandora charms.  She created just the right pieces for me.  I was very pleased.

Floor Puzzles

When the kids were all home yet, we would enjoy family night on Fridays.  We would watch movies, have pizza and at times put together great floor puzzles here.  It's so neat to see them come together.  We also had a few 3D puzzles.  Those were pretty cool also.

Life Insurance

Most of the people we know have some life insurance.  It is an expense that many don't want to spend on.  I really don't either but it is something that is needed.  We are in the market for term insurance and have done some checking to make sure we buy the best policy for our needs.  There are so many different companies but we trust our agent to find the best possible insurance for us.

Kitchen Cabinets RTA

My daughter and her husband bought a very nice home just over a year ago. They have done a few things to it, but it was really in great shape already.  They would like to redo their kitchen however.  Recently they purchased a new dinning set and are now starting to talk about what might be good choices for the kitchen.  With kitchen cabinets rta store, they can browse and make some decisions.  It will be fun to see what they come up with.

The Landing

My husband and I decided to take a short trip to Eastern Iowa.  It was so pretty.  We stayed where my aunt and uncle had taken my folks a couple of years ago.  It was a nice time!

CNC tube bending service

When my youngest son was in his Tool and Die program the first couple of years of college, he learned a lot.  What ever the project the cnc tube bending service could assist.  It is amazing how they can bend pipe to attach to fittings.  It seems to be pretty easy to accomplish just about anything these days!

Fun Times!

I stopped at my daughter's house and had a chance to play with the grand kids.  They wanted to play with hair, so we decided to put curlers in.  They were tickled.  It wasn't too easy to put them in Kaden's hair.  It's pretty short.

Outdoor Patio Heaters

When we moved into our new home, we gained a patio that we could use for grilling and having family and friends over.  Of course, as the weather has been cooling, we found we should look into outdoor patio heaters so that we would be able to use our patio longer into the Fall.  We began by checking the Internet and we not only found outdoor patio heaters but a great deal more.  We also found chocolate fountains that we could use as we have been to many parties where they were a big hit.  We wanted to add as much to the fun of our patio as possible.  Propane heaters were also checked out and discussed as optional methods of providing heat where it was needed to keep out patio comfortable as the chill of Fall set in.  With a beautiful new barbeque, we were not quite ready to give up grilling out and the food always tastes so wonderful when you grill.  I know it won't be long and in our area, the snow will be falling and we will have to wait till Spring before we can once again get outside onto our Patio and enjoy it again.  And with outdoor patio heaters available, we know we will be able to use them in the Spring, as well.  I guess we get over anxious to get outside when Spring comes, but after you have been cooped up all winter, you are ready for some fresh air and to get that grill going again and once more enjoy our beautiful patio.
We have 7 lovely grandchildren who can hardly wait to spend time in our new home with us and we always enjoy it so much when they can come to visit.  Being able to take them outside and get lots of fresh air is good for all of us and it helps the children sleep better too, at least I think so. In addition to using patio heaters for the patio, they would very much come in handy for an outdoor wedding and/or reception.  In order to keep the guests comfortable, radiant heaters and propane heaters would be a great advantage.  Any outdoor event would benefit from the many types of heaters available.

Grand Baby Fun!

We were having fun watching our grand children the other night!  They were so good.  We fed them supper and got them in their pj's.  They never fussed!  What a joy!

Wine Online

Over the years I have heard of some of the benefits of drinking wine. A friend of mine has a problem with her circulation especially in the cold weather. She found that drinking a little wine each night has helped her. In reading wine online I found that wine is quite the healthy drink. It is known to help with muscle mass, bone density and the lowering of cholesterol. They are also finding it may assist in fighting cancer, obesity and diabetes. In researching I am learning that there are even more positive effects. Wine can be a healthy choice.

Carhartt jackets from

When our youngest son was growing up, he enjoyed working with his hands and getting dirty.  He was in the tool and die field for a time.  He would have loved the Carhartt jackets from site.  Carhartt was one of his favorite brands.  Now our oldest son who is living on a farm, loves the brand also.

irrigation supply depot

We moved into a new home about a year ago. Our lawn is needing a lot of work.  We're looking into what to do first.  I know I have seen where some people put lawn sprinkler systems in.  That could definitely help in keeping a consistant dampness to the newly growing grass.
With the website we've found some assistance. They have so much to offer.  They offer a variety of risers to chose from.  Along with controls, sensors and the right tools it really doesn't look too bad.  
This site has a a great selection on irrigation supplies and they offer free shipping on orders of $99 or more!  How great is that?!  This is where contractors purchase the supplies they are needing for that big job.  In buying they accept all of the major credit cards and PayPal verified.  The website is also very user friendly.  Click in and see for yourself.

Avo Cigar

Growing up I can remember my dad enjoying a good avo cigar or rolled cigarette. He had speacially carved ashtrays through out the house. Smoking was just one thing he really enjoyed doing. He started quite young and continued until he passed away a year ago It's easier then ever to purchase the kinds of cigars you like.

Our daughter and her family recently spent the day at local Zoo. The kids had so much fun! What a great picture they captured.

We've been busy working on our home. There are still many decisions to make. One area to consider is our new bathroom. It's good to know that there is a great online website I can shop at.
At a person can find a variety of bathroom items. You can find a great line of faucets to choose from. From a timeless collection to a bold classic style, there are many to admire. Will it be a brass or metal finish? I'm just not sure. What a great and easy way to shop. The website is user friendly. Drop what you are wanting into your cart and go from there.
See what's new and the latest! It will take some time for me to make a decision. I'm sure waterworks can help out!

Sterling Silver Bracelet

A few years back we were out traveling and came across a beautiful sterling silver bracelet. There are some great pieces out there. I am one that can't seem to get enough of this type of thing. It always brings a smile to have something new. Jewelry is such an awesome accessory for any outfit. It can make such a statement.

Sunday, July 8, 2012


The other day we went to a pizza place that we had never been to before. They specialize in the New York style pizza. We ordered two large pizzas which were 18" each. Wow, they were huge. Of course there was not a chance that we were going to finish them. We had six adults and four kids at lunch and only finished one full pizza plus two slices of the second one. It was good pizza and it made for great left overs. I don't know if I have ever seen such big pizza slices. They covered the entire plate. Good pizza and a good price.

Boutonnieres and Corsages

Our youngest son recently got married. They venue was up near Estes Park. It was so beautiful! She had natural wild flowers for boutonnieres and corsages. The bridesmaids made their own bouquets with long-stemmed wild flowers! Everything went together so well. It was gorgeous.

Barrel Bolt

I remember growing up on the farm my dad had many projects. It seemed we would be working all day on Saturdays. There were many tools and equipment that at the time I was unaware of what they were. My mom would run to town for barrel bolt, latches and other things we might be in need of. She did a lot of running.

Garage Sales

Over the years I have been to many garage sales. When the kids were younger I am sure I went to even more than today. Many great deals were found at those sales. We all know you need to watch what you are buying but there are so many wonderful items at these sales. I remember buying sacks of clothes for just a few dollars. Toys, sports items, clothes and household items were always on my list. I know that many clothing items had never even been worn before. If you have never been to a garage sale, I would encourage you to try one out.

Donate Car

My son and his family have huge hearts! They want to help children who are in need. Recently they have taken in a couple of children and love them so. Family and friends have been such a great support system. They find themselves receiving as others donate car, clothes and other items. What wonderful blessings others have been.

General liability insurance cost

I think its always worth the time spent to check out insurance quotes. For example the general liability insurance cost can really vary. We found that we saved hundreds by shopping around. It's important to be covered these days. Protect yourself, get the insurance you need.

Our youngest grandson is so smiley! He always seems to be happy! He makes my day!

Playground equipment richmond va

I remember years ago. My children were quite young. They built a new elementary and had great playground equipment brought in. I'm not really sure where it was purchased but know that you can buy playground equipment richmond va, that is amazing. Our kids had more fun. They make the neatest things these days!

Serenata Flowers

Need some beautiful flowers for a special occasion? Maybe you just want to get that special someone some flowers just to surprise them. Have you ever considered buying flowers from Serenata's online shop ? They have speedy service and a huge variety of beautiful flowers. You get terrific discounts on beautiful arrangements for any occasion, birthday, anniversary, just to name a couple. They even have FREE flower delivery if you order them before 8 p.m. Perhaps you have decided to get a potted plant instead but you don't know how to care for it. By checking the Internet you can find out all the information you need to take care of potted plants, as well as, caring for a flower garden, or planting seeds and just about anything you can think of as far as caring for your flowers.

Zenni Optical

Why is it that somewhere over 40 years of age, you suddenly find that your being able to read is not quite as clear as it used to be? So you trot off to your local optometrist to see what can be done about it. I quickly found out just how important it is for choosing the right glasses for your face. I was really surprised at how many types of glasses there are. I found out you should decide first of all what shape your face is - square, round, oval or heart shaped. You want the glasses to compliment your face. Then there is the matter of what material you want your glasses to be made of. If you are like me, you have a lot of silver and white gold jewelry so you don't want to buy a metalic frame that is gold color. It could be quite complicated matching your jewelry with your glasses. The color should also compliment your hair color so they don't stand out and could actually look ugly on you. It is best to choose the right frame from a company that has lots to choose from so you will not only look your best but when you get the lenses, you will be seeing everything so much better. Check out the Internet and deal with a company that has everything to offer you in great glasses.


Our youngest son is getting married on Saturday to a sweet girl we all love. It is very exciting. They are being married in a very unique place. It is in the mountains. Not only it will be a big event for our family, but it will be partly vacation at the same time. I know we will all have a great time celebrating this happy occasion with them. We can hardly wait.

Traser Watches

For many years my husband was on the tactical team at work. It was a stressful time. Each time he was called out was a concern. He seemed to enjoy it though. He had a lot of tactical gear such as traser watches, special guns, masks etc... It was a dangerous job, but he was trained for it.


It's that time of year. Kids are graduating. We've enjoyed going around to the graduation celebrations. The displays that families set tout are amazing. We saw many trophies, pictures, awards and personal items. Each party individualized. It's fun to see.

Wood Pergolas

It's that time of year! The trees are blooming and the grass needs cutting. We've got to get to working on our yard now. I have been looking at wood pergolas. They are beautiful and boy do they add to a yard! I love the way that people add hanging pots on them. There is so much a person can do.

The Tips with Baking Cheesecake from Your Home

You don't have to spent lots of money in order to get a good quality of cheesecake. You can actually bake one for your personal dessert in your own kitchen. It is very easy to bake one. You just need to have the ingredients ready and an excellent cake pan.

Because these cakes have several flavors, there are lots of choices up for grab. You can choose the flavor that you want or favorite. If you are experimental, then you can try to bake the flavor or recipe that you haven't tried yet. You can find lots of suggestions to help you make a good dessert and reveal few ideas that you can use while baking.

You should make sure that all the ingredients that you will use in baking should be at least at room temperature. You need to do this so that the ingredients will blend well. After you bake the cake in the oven, it should just shake and have a little soft part in the middle. Do not worry about this, turn off the oven and open the oven door. You just need to leave the cake inside and remove it once completely cold.

Most of the time, bakers use springform pan to cook this cake which is usually in a water bath. The water all around helps the cake stays damp during the entire cooking process. Moreover, the water keeps the cake at the same heat level. It helps the baking the cake evenly. Baking the cake unevenly, or dry will cause sinking, scuffling, or cracks.

Using springform pan will help achieve the wanted water bath. This cake pan is deeper than the regular pan and has an easy-to-remove base. Springform pan allows you to remove the cake from it without having to flip the pan over and damage the cake.

There is one thing you need to know about using springform pan. Water constantly seems to soak into the cake pan. This is because the design of the springform pans allows the water to get in, which will lead to soggy crust. Most bakers put one pan in another pan in order to solve this problem. This setup can prevent the water from sipping in, but it can also make the cake cook unevenly.

There are many cheesecake pans available in the market that you can buy. The new generation of pans solves many concerns in baking cakes. You can use these pans to achieve the perfect cake that you want.


We went to one of our first children's programs for our grand daughter. It was awards night at Cubbies at church. She was so excited! It was great fun!

Birthday Invitations

In the last few years our family has grown immensely and we find ourselves in the market for birthday invitations for so many different occasions. To begin with we have gained several grandchildren and each one will be celebrating their birthday at a different time and place of course. We wish to invite as many of our family as possible to that very special first birthday. So in order to do that, I have been searching the Internet for all kinds of cute, exciting, and those such invitations that will match up to the theme their Moms have chosen for each of their parties. I know each one will be different and I found a huge variety of invitations to help their Moms with the planning of the big birthday event and help them get the invitations at reasonable rates and get them mailed out for each party. Actually, 4 of the children are all with 2 months so it is necessary to get going and get the invitations ordered as soon as possible. Then of course, the two, three and four year olds also want to have a party for their birthdays, so I am trying to help with invitations for those as well. Not only that, but it will not be very long and it will be time for my husband's milestone birthday. I want to get special invitations for his birthday and surprise him. I found I could get invitations that would advise the guests to keep it a big secret from him so he will be totally surprised. Since he is reaching a certain milestone in his life, it is always fun to celebrate those in a special way. In the past I have had a hard time finding that type of birthday invitation, but not any more. I have found a great place that has every kind of birthday invitation you could wish for. It certainly takes a great deal of stress out of my life to be able to order just the invitations I need and have them sent to my home. That way, neither the children or my husband will find out about them.

Deck Furniture

Now that we have a new home we're trying to fix it up the way we want it to be. Getting new deck furniture was top of the list. We actually have a front porch which we love! It fun to experience new things and a new area. The deck furniture only adds to that excitement! Shopping is fun also and we've been doing a lot of that!

Old Dog, NewTricks

Some say that you can't teach an old dog new tricks but our dog doesn't seem to know that. Even though she is almost 11 years old she does learn to do new things. She is a pretty good dog. There are times that she is kind of a pain, like waking us up way too early in the morning, but overall she is a good addition to the family. She can shake, beg and roll over but I do wish she would do a better job on walks by staying by my side when not on a leash. If you have ideas in that regard please let me know.

Plus size maternity clothes

Can you remember the types of clothes you wore while being pregnant? The styles sure have changed. The blouses I wore were big and the dresses were like wearing a tent. Now they are more slim fitted and it's easier to fine the plus size maternity clothes as well. I think I would have enjoyed my wardrobe had they had these styles back in the day.

Is axis ht safe?

We're hearing almost everyday about athletes who are taking steroids or other types of drugs to hopefully help enhance their performance. There are many testosterone boosters on the market today. Some may ask is axis ht safe? A booster can help increase strength, muscle gain and assist in sexual drive. Is this a necessity for some? I would guess it's an individual choice.

Wedding Shower

Our church had a wedding shower on Saturday for our youngest son's fiance. It was a great turnout and many beautiful gifts. It is always a lot of fun to go to one when you don't have to do all the planning and someone else has handled all the decorations and refreshments. A good time was had by all. We are really getting excited for the date of the wedding to arrive.

Internet Marketing

Internet Marketing is the best way to go in these wonderful days of technology. It is easy for a business to get their products or services out in front of so many more prospective customers than it used to be. Years ago, you had a store business and you sent out flyers by US Mail but today you can hire a company to handle your website's business and promote its growth by reaching so any more people. They are able to assist both small and large companies and it is easy for you to research the Internet for such a company and what the costs would be to you. In expanding your business, you will easily recover the expense in no time. Instead of reaching your neighborhood or town or surrounding cities, you have the ability to reach the world through the use of search engine optimization. Your online business will grow exponentially, while your brick and mortar store is also doing a good business.

Easter Dinner

I am planning an early Easter dinner this Saturday as it is also my youngest son's birthday. We will have all the grandchildren there. It will be a great family time. We will hide Easter eggs and it will be so much fun to watch the kids find them. They get so excited. Easter is probably the best celebration of all because our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, went to the cross, died and rose again and is in Heaven interceding for us now. What a wonderful gift he gave us.

Are you one to shop online? I didn't think I would be, but have found it to be so quick and convenient. Over the past few years I have purchased most of my Christmas presents that way.
I love these daily sites that run specials. I hear from most everyday. It's fun to see what they are running on sale. They have such a variety of items. There's entertainment, jewelry, beauty, accessories, clothes and even free deals. With nomorerack you are sure to find something you'll enjoy.
Not to often can you get something for free. Check them out for yourself.


Wow! What an awesome winter we have had! I can't believe it's already spring time. The snow (what little we got) has melted away. The grass is green, trees are budding and some flowers are blooming and it's not even April yet. I love it. There have been many years where we deal with so much snow and cold and spring comes late. I think we deserve this! :)

Cutting expenses

This guest post from Werner Rogers

My husband is a teacher in our local high school. The economy has been so bad lately, and it has affected a lot of people and businesses. In the latest faculty meeting at my husband’s school, he told me that they said they were going to have to lose seven teachers next year. They have four that are retiring so I am guessing that those will not be replaced. He has been there long enough that he is not in danger of losing his job. But he did say that there would continue to be mandatory furlough days where the teachers would have a day off from school on certain days and would not get paid for those days. So he said we need to be more frugal at home with our expenses. He said he was going to find cheaper ways of getting our utilities and would shop for a cheaper electrical company through Boy I hope our economy starts turning around for the better soon. I don’t know how much longer we can keep going like this.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 has free shipping!

My kids have small children. I can't believe all the stuff they have. There are so many new and different products available on the market these days. I'm sure they would be interested in knowing that has free shipping. Sometimes you find that the shipping is almost a much as the item you are purchasing. Good to know!

Vlc Media Player Download

Technology has sure changed. When I think back to my younger days, we didn't even own a computer. It is now easier then ever to find just about anything you might be needing. I plan our travel through the internet. I do much of my shopping through the internet. I see where it is presently free for the vlc media player download. It is a simple, fast and powerful media player. There is always something new coming on the market. I'll have to check this out.

I love to try new recipes. I found this one on Pinterest the other day. It's is a chicken parmesan. It ended up being quite tasty. My husband wasn't too sure about the croutons on the top. We may have it again.

Video Game Stores

Raising two boys I found they enjoyed the technology that was available out there. They loved their game machines. They spent much time and money at the video game stores. I think they would still enjoy them if they had more time. Now they are wrapped up with family and careers. There are a variety of games to play. My husband would enjoy some of them also.

Youngest Family Member

Caysen is the youngest family member! He is growing so fast. Now almost 4 months old, he is already holding himself up some and making those cute little noises babies make. I love his smile!

Marcus Nurse Uniforms

I've been working in the medical field for years. Times have sure changed. I remember wearing the old nursing caps when I first started out. You don't even see those anymore. We were told we would need to alway wear white pants and shoes, but could wear any color top we wanted. Then we began to purchase a type of Marcus nurse uniform. It sure makes getting ready in the morning a breeze.

Apidextra Review

As I grow older I find that the weight tends to go on so easy, but not always so easy to take off. Many women around me talk of the same thing. They are looking into different types of diets. Some are thinking of trying diet pills. I saw where you can read a apidextra review. It's nice to know how safe and effect they are before purchasing.

Can You Sing?

We enjoy watching American Idol. I am very impressed how well people can sing. I know many that can sing in a large group but to belt it out as well as those chosen to be on the show is awesome. There must be a tremendous amount pressure too. Millions can sing but to be at that level is incredible.

Putting my makeup brushes and eyeliners in their proper places

Guest post written by Gloria Tennon

It wasn't until recently that I actually had a proper place for all of my makeup brushes and eyeliners. I threw them all in a small makeup bag every day and would have to dig through it to find the proper stuff each and every day. Well, I decided that I'd lost too many things that way and it was time to actually come up with a decent storage solution.

When I went online searching for storage solutions for all that makeup, the better to actually see what I have, I found a lot of info on Sears Heating and Cooling. Our climate control in our home has been off for a while now and I'm sick of it, so I decided to take some steps toward getting a better system through Sears.

I also found some great ideas for makeup organization, including investing in a lacquered tray to keep on my vanity to hold all of my everday makeup wihtin reach. i'm going to keep the stuff for specail occasions in a bag though so my vanity doesn't look so cluttered.

The history of Easter baskets in the US

There are many good things that come to mind when someone thinks of the Easter season. One of the things that is a happy memory for many children and people in general is the Easter baskets that have come to be a necessity of the holiday. There are many children who have even come to expect the gift as a part of the holiday festivities. In most family?s traditions the Easter baskets are kept from the children until the day of the holiday. There are also many other traditions that are a part of the festivities of the holiday as well.

One of the traditions that is the most fun for everyone including the children is the traditional Easter egg hunt. This is a great tradition where the people that are organizing the hunt have a job hiding eggs in different places and then they have the children go and find them wherever it is they are hidden. This is a great game and it is a lot of fun for families. It is also a time which like many other holidays families can spend time together. It is important for families to spend as much quality time together as they possibly can in order to have the chance of becoming closely knit.

Here in the United States Easter is a very popular holiday because of the fact that it is a Christian holiday. Many different cultures brought these traditions with them when they decided to immigrate here to the United States and therefore there are many families that still celebrate the holiday today.

Here in the United States it is also common to combine these traditions with the religious ceremonies that are also a vital part of the day. Easter itself is really a combination of two holidays one of which is pagan and the other of which is strictly spiritual. There are those families who choose to leave behind the egg decorating and the other parts of the holiday that are deemed by them to be unnecessary in favor of religious observance. It is also important to note that Easter is not just a time for putting on pastel colored clothing decorating eggs and giving gifts in baskets. It is about something that is much more important than that.

There are many symbols of the holiday that transcend the pagan holiday and have since been changed to have more of a spiritual meaning such as eggs and rabbits. No matter how the holiday is celebrated it is nevertheless an important holiday for many people regardless of their background or social status. It is also a tremendously fun day for children of a variety of different ages as well as the adults. Holidays of any kind are great excuses for the whole family to get together and have fun all while enjoying each other?s company. It doesn?t matter in the slightest what you do in order to celebrate any holiday as long as you have a good time and enjoy the family being together.

Redwood picnic table

This past Fall we moved after 28 years living in the same home. It has been somewhat bitter sweet, but are loving our new home. We have work to do and are excited to see how everything comes together. I have been thinking over what we might do out on our patio. I saw that a person can purchase a redwood picnic table. I'm wondering if that might fit in well. It's fun to explore!

Baby Caysen

Our newest grandson Caysen Reed! He's growing up so fast. He is such fun! I love when he smiles back at me and starts to make little noises. They are the sweetest!

A Family Valentine

Thanks for the post from Nora Mccoy

Valentine’s Day is not far away and I’m already planning for the special day. It’s tough on a budget so I’ve been thinking about what we can do at our house that is not only money conscious but includes the whole family. My plan right now is to cook a nice dinner and serve it on our good china in the dining room—it will be like eating out at a fraction of the cost! We rarely use our good china for the adults and I don’t think the kids have ever eaten of it so it should be a real treat. I’ve started looking for recipes and am looking for something fancier than our everyday fair but easy to make. I already have all the ingredients for our family’s favorite flourless chocolate cake. It’s one thing I make maybe once a year that isn’t that hard just time consuming. After our fabulous fancy dinner, I’m hoping there will be a good movie on directtv that the family can watch together. I’m looking forward to it already!

Migraine Procedure

For twenty plus years I have suffered with migraines. After seeing many doctors and trying different meds., I still find myself struggling. It's difficult to deal with at times. I've worked on pin-pointing my triggers and have heard of a Migraine procedure that might help. I'm not against trying new things. Migraines are something I wouldn't wish on anyone.


My husband got a new Ipad this past year. I have used it some but love my Mac. He enjoys the Ipad and has lots of apps on it. From games to music and movies to photos that little device is pretty cool. I don't know much about it but I do know that his is the Ipad 2. I read on the internet that there may be a 3rd one coming out. I would guess that eventually he will want the newest version.

Sheepskin Covers

Recently we moved and bought a new home. It has been fun to decorate and make it our own. We live in an area where the winters are cold and cruel. A person needs to find every way possible to stay warm.
I found that a person can purchase sheepskin seat covers. Boy, that would feel great on a cold winters day. You get into the car and that hard cold seat doesn't feel good. Now with a sheepskin cover, it adds softness and warmth.
The website also offers sheepskin rugs. How cool is that? To add warmth to your life, you just have to check these out! They not only add warmth but also style and a feeling of coziness. They offer free shipping as well. Check it out

snare drum

When I was in school I really didn't have an interest in anything musical. Now I wish I would have been more involved in music and instruments. My kids all played an instrument while in school and I enjoyed listening at home and at concerts. My youngest child loved pounding on things and at one time wanted a snare drum. He ended up taking guitar lessons and learning quite a lot on his own. He still plays today. Music is a magical thing. It can take you back to those special moments in life.

roadside assistance club

How terrible would it be to be stranded on the side of the road in your vehicle and not know who to call for assistance? We have all driven past cars, trucks and travel trailers that have broken down. If those people would have belonged to a roadside assistance club they could have had peace of mind that help was on the way.

Ft Lauderdale airport parking

We have taken several trips where we have had to park at an airport. Some of the trips have been better than others due to how the airport parking experience was for us.

Light Timer

I have a small artificial tree with lights that I put on the front porch. We attached a timer to it so the lights come on about dusk and stay on for six hours. I remember when I needed to plug and unplug lights each night. The timer is so easy to set up too. Whoever designed it must have made a fortune. We used to hang lights from our gutter too but I think just having the small tree is enough.

Téléphones cellulaires

I can remember when we didn't even own a cell phone. Boy, times have sure changed. Now just about everyone is carrying a cell phone or Téléphones cellulaires as some may call it. It's like a safety net. A person hates to leave home with out it. It's a good feeling to know that you can call anyone at anytime, anywhere. It's especially nice when traveling. Now so many come with the internet also. Isn't technology great?!


Isn't family great! We had our last Christmas gathering this past weekend! It was a lot of fun, but went way to fast. As always.....
