|At my weekly doctor's appointment yesterday my doctor said I could 'push it' a bit. I baked today. I dropped an egg but who cares. I made these huge cupcakes. They are going to the neighbors. Mint chocolate chip and peanut butter chocolate.|
|Another bag for ThredUp. This is my 5th bag to them. My 3rd & 4th bag are processing. I send in used items and they give me money. It takes about a month from the time it is sent in until you get money.|
|On Tuesday we had dirt (fill) dumped in our driveway. Our driveway goes completely around the house. It is like a gravel mote. Every year we (the husband) put more gravel down since it disappears. It kind of sinks into the ground.|
|This year my husband had a friend scrape up all the gravel and put fill down. Hopefully that will pack and then the gravel won't disappear as fast.|
|I love this funny man. He worked in the pouring rain for hours. Plus, he dances with me in the rain.|
|Here is our friend "Goose". This real name is Randy but almost everyone out here has an odd nickname. He ran the John Deere and my husband ran our tractor.|
|We had two tractors parked on the side of our home for a few days.|
|I love this view! This is the view you see from the hammock on the front porch.|
|I ordered my favorite mascara from Amazon last week and used it yesterday. I hardly ever wear make-up at this point. I was going to the doctor's and so I put it on. I LOVE this mascara. It makes my lashes super long and doesn't clump. I have purchased more expensive mascara and didn't like it half as good as this one. |
Best part? It is $4.77 with free shipping on Amazon. Yup, a full size mascara for under $5. It is Maybelline's lash stiletto in soft black. I have used "very black" and it works great too. But it is like fifty cents more and I am cheap. It is over $7 at Wal-Mart and you have to drive there. Amazon rocks!
Here is how good it works...The doctor had me doing high tech eye movements wearing a eye sensor. The eye sensor kept thinking my LASHES were my pupils because of how big they looked. The doctor told me not to wear mascara next time. Oops.
|And this one is funny. I tie dyed a shirt in turmeric. It was an old white shirt I was donating anyway. It took all my wrist strength to do this and I hurt for a day afterward.|
|Here is before I washed it. Pretty awesome, right?|
|Even the "after" looks great. Except, it smelled of turmeric. I washed it a second time and it still smelled. Plus, it lost most of its color after the second wash. Yeah, tie dying with turmeric isn't a great idea.|
