Strawberry Cake

Mom made a 3 layer strawberry cake is so pretty and I can't wait to have a slice!

We Are Rich!!!!

So I was outside walking the kids a couple of mornings ago and I looked over and I saw money on the ground! Little did I know that we would be rich!!! We will be taking requests for anything you need....

Gel-Pro Mats

Mom spends a ton of time in her kitchen cooking for the neighbors. So there is lots of standing and her legs and back get tired. She found these Gel-Pro mats from Bed, Bath and Beyond to ease the situation. Can I just say how great they feel on your feet? For the love....I will go out of my way through the kitchen just so I am standing on them...they are cool in temperature and so nice on your feet....I could stand there all day and hand wash dishes....awesome!

Attention: Kindle Fire - IPad - Laptop Owners, etc.

Found the coolest thing on the web! The website is I LOVE stuff like this to decorate your electronic devices. You can get them for Kindle and laptops and Iphones and Ipads and Ipods, etc. They are what they say they are....gel skins of artwork to decorate. You can just put them on and then peel them off and change out with no residue. I got one for Mom's Kindle Fire, it is Monet's "Artist's Garden at Giverny". See below, front and back (sorry for the glare):

For my Kindle Fire, I got "Infinite Oz" (again...sorry for the glare):

All you have to do is go to the website....choose your device and start shopping. We are going to order some for our laptops too. I KNOW this is totally not a necessary thing to have in your life but it sure makes me happy and would make a great gift!! A gift for yourself...just because...or for your family and friends! I LOVE IT!!

Thank You Frontera

So last year we got sick of buying hanging baskets for the deck. We have so much direct sun and heat that we gave up because no amount of watering could save them. We visited Frontera down the road from us and picked up iron flowers. Popped them in a pot with rubber mulch and voila! Perfect flowers that don't die and don't need watering and the hummingbirds are still attracted. This one on the deck is about my height....5' 3"....yep...I am a giant!

This year we decided to do the same thing in the front. We have the same problem there with the heat and sun so we got this one from Frontera and again voila! No more watering and no dead flowers and no money down the drain...

And I would like to thank my camera and my dogs for showing exactly how much dog snot is on our storm door. They really are cute dogs and you would know that if you could SEE them! For the love....going for the Windex!

Had this awesome clock over the kitchen door for years and years. It was a plate with 3D vegetables as the numbers. It had a second hand that was very useful for cooking. Didn't realize how much we looked at the clock until it died at 8:30 one night. Put new batteries in and nada. So the search was on for a new clock to go over the door. I am not saying we love our dogs or anything but.......

So I am not a huge fan of magicians....I find them kind of annoying. BUT I will say this 15 year old kid owned me....the sarcasm and the tricks were good and not to mention NPH introduced him....worth watching:

Lightning Flowers

So I seem to find some crazy stuff on the internet and I have now found "lightning flowers". This is something that happens to some people who have been struck by lightning. A “lightning flower” is a Lichtenberg Figure — or electric discharge pattern — that occurs on the skin of lightning strike victims, most likely as a result of small capillaries bursting from the intensity of the bolt’s current. I found this on the Epic What website and wow....good thing...these are not forever...they do go away...

I investigated some more and found these pictures...

Glad they go away and these people are okay....
