After working all day, the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner but it had to be done. My daughter was watching cooking channel as I walked past the living room heading for the kitchen. The only thing that I heard as I passed was, “Scalloped Potatoes and Ham, that is what is for dinner!” Ree, the Pioneer Woman spoke words directly to me. I was hooked and that was exactly what I had for dinner! I did do mine different and it was not as pretty as hers when it came out of the oven but it was wonderful!
Here is what I did.Add a comment
I had the opportunity to sit and read at the local bookstore the other day. I love to read and write so when I came across the reference section devoted to “How to write” I stopped looked and read! I pulled out several books and made my way to the small corner with a table and chairs overlooking the outdoors mall and read!
I started reading the book “Fiction Writer’s Workshop” by Josip Novakovich. Normally I can tell if I will like the book within the first couple of pages. Most writers cannot hold my attention but this book sparked some interest. “To be a good writer, you must have the paradoxical trait of being a gregarious loner.” As I read this, I chuckled out loudly. My husband sitting across from me asked what I had read. I told him. He said, “so true!” My thoughts are to be a good writer one must have the ability to communicate thoughts through the eyes of others.Add a comment
I have been having so much fun with my knitting and crochet projects that I have now opened an Etsy Store. I have a variety of projects listed and I am continuing to add more every week.
My mother, Shirley taught me how to crochet. She was so good at it and loved making blankets. I finished my first baby blanket last night. I will be adding it to the store today! I think she would be proud that I actually took to something she shared with me when I was a teenager.
My step-mother Carolyn taught me how to knit. Carolyn was more patient with me than Mom when it came to anything with points, even if they were not really sharp! I wish I had remembered everything that I learned. But I love using the new looms that you can get at any craft store. I have both round and straight looms. I have made several hats and scarves, which everyone seems to enjoy. I recently bought new knitting needles so that I can start different projects that I have planned. Hopefully knitting with needles will come back to me as easily as the crocheting did.Add a comment
Deodorant Stains on shirts.
I have been working on putting products into a website that a couple of my neighbors and I have started. Overstuffedcloset.com I have taking the photos to add some of the clothes to the line. Some of the shirts are name brands and in very good condition. When I was resizing the pictures, we noticed that our teenagers love to use deodorant! To the naked eye you cannot see the mounds of caked-on deodorant on the shirts. The camera does not lie!
I started my Internet search on the best way to remove the caked-on deodorant from these shirts. I came across several sites that describe how to do this. This article will describe what I did to remove the stains.Add a comment
