Shaving Cream Adventure

For about a buck you can entertain a 3.5 year old for over an hour. LOL
I saw a few people had tried this and thought it would be something the Princess would enjoy. Well I was right. She had a blast. It was a lot of laughs for both of us. I recommend you try it with your kids. It really was a cheap thing to do and it rates high on the list for fun!
Playing in the mud always rates the highest, but at least with shaving cream they smell nice and clean afterwards. (-:

Lighted Butterfly

I got the cutest light up butterfly yesterday. It is new made to look old. It supposedly had a timer and all that. Well when I got it, there was just an on and off switch. No timer setting. I wrote to the person I got it from and instead of returning item they said I could keep it and would just take money off the selling price. So since I love the butterfly I said yes. Well, to my surprise after the butterfly was lit for 6 hours it did turn off! Should I feel bad? I am going to wait until the time of day comes that the butterfly is suppose to turn on again and see. Then I will decide.(-: Made in China of course so not like it is worth that much to start with. It just makes me mad when I order something and it is not what it says it is. Here is a picture of the on/off switch
The instructions say turn to timer setting if you want the butterfly to be on for 6 hours and shut off. It is suppose to automatically turn on again in 18 hours. Well I looked for the on/off switch and there was no timer setting. That is why I wrote to the seller. I have several candles that do have timers and they do have a setting for that or instructions on how to push a button to set. Anyhow, it is cute and I know the Princess will enjoy seeing it lit up.

It is not for outside though. It has a cardboard backing that is removable so you can replace lights I guess. Which is fine, because I plan to use inside.
This picture is from the sellers listing. I didn't take a picture of it here. I think it looks better in person.

It was the biggest one I have seen so far. So pretty, but it would not sit still.
So only one picture turned out.
It was smokin' hot here today. 108 degrees. Yucky.
Didn't do a lot as you can imagine.
Tomorrow will be a couple degrees cooler.
Still trying to get things in order here.
On to the next day...Hope it's a good one!

Last Rusting Project

Decided this is it for the rusting butterflies. This one was not cooperating at all. Finally after spending the whole day dipping/letting it dry/dipping/letting it dry it finally worked. Ugh! No idea why that was. So decided this is the last one. LOL
In between this activity I worked on the bedrooms getting everything back together after the carpeting fiasco. So glad that is over too. That is also the last time I do that.
Is it just me or do people just have no respect for anything anymore? No respect for time or pride in the work they do or anything. I am discouraged by people. It also seems that no one wants to work anymore. Or go the extra mile so to speak. I was brought up differently I guess.
The carpet fiasco was just one thing.
The selling of my Mom's house was another and the gardener that mowed my Mom's lawn was another. It just seems that no one cares anymore about the work they do.
The realtor for the buyer gave the key to the buyers after they started escrow. That really made me mad. So unethical it seems. They left food uneaten in the house on the counters and cigarette butts smashed on the front sidewalk. Just rude and disrespectful.
I would never do that. People now days seem to not give a second thought. So glad that fiasco is over too.
It is going to be another hot weekend. How long till Fall? LOL
Have a great weekend!

Two More Rooms Carpeted

Waiting on guy to come do the molding. Why they don't have them do it the same day no one knows. Ugh! The carpet fiasco is almost over and then I can sit back and relax and enjoy the beautiful new carpeting. Tomorrow for sure they said.(-:
What they did sure looks nice.
Now to arrange all the furniture etc. That should take a week.
Stay cool!

Game Changer

So for several years now I have had terrible knee pain. It at times paralyzed me to the point I had to sit down. It came and went though so I kept on going when the pain was minimal. Nothing keeps me down for long. Although this knee pain did put a total damper on my fun and walking and etc. I had surgery on the same knee in high school for a torn meniscus. I just figured it was arthritis from that. But now I think it may have been a combo of things. I did buy new shoes all the time, but they never helped. The other day I got new shoes again and also had ordered some of these socks.
I wore them all day yesterday for the first time and even with having the Princess with me for 11 hours I was still going at 11pm. That is a miracle in itself. So I would say yes these socks do work!
This morning I expected to be in pain, but nope, nada. What is in these socks? No idea. They are really amazing. I will keep you posted on how I do. I did however order two more pairs. One for hubby to try and another for me.(-:
If you want to try them and you should... I got mine from Glenda @ Tootsie Time. Yes she sells socks too! Send her an email.
Order yours here:VoxxSocks from Glenda Duchak

Coolin' In The Cauldron

Remember when I got this cauldron and then found the perfect pump to go with it? Then I found the fish.

It cools me down just looking at it.
