Tuesday Tipz

Store it where you use it!

Try to store items that you use 
most often where you use them,
even if it seems counter-intuitive
to how you were taught to organize.
-For example--extra set of sheets 
where the beds are, not in a linen closet.
-If you have an extra drawer in the bathroom,
store clothes for showers. 
-If you enjoy crafting while watching
TV, dedicate a basket, drawer or 
cupboard close by for those supplies. 
-Keep cooking utensils close to the stove,
not across the room. 
-Have a dedicated area for card sending and bill paying 
 supplied with cards, pens, envelopes and stamps.

Resident agronomist was rather pleased with his first attempt at growing Pumpkins in Tennessee.  
We ended up with 4 ---one for each grand!

"WASTE NOT, WANT NOT!"

This was one of my Dad's favorite sayings.
He grew up during the depression, so nothing was wasted.
While not being wasteful is always a good idea,
this saying also became a rather comical comment
to situations during my childhood.

Needing a large jar of M&Ms for a club project,
I ordered one from Sam's Club.
Below is how the jar arrived via FedEx.
Now this jar was not shipped in a flimsy package,
it was double wrapped with foam along with
a cold pack to keep the "Melt In Your Mouth,
Not in Your Hands" candy from melting.
Someone had to work hard for this product to arrive
in this condition. What a sad waste of good candy.
I actually found the humor in what happened
and am happy to report a replacement is on its way.
Stay tuned.....

Pokey the Sloth Puppet Has a new Friend:
      The maker of the sloth puppets was back at a local craft fair, so Pokey now has a new friend--
welcome to Smokey the Sloth who thinks he is a Smoky Mountain Tennessee Black Bear.

     
Howdy Y'all!

KIDNEY STONE

BUT IT WILL PASS!
