Challenge Update


Well, my challenge with Mr. Ken 

has started. I have read and 
finished 2 of the 50 I have been
challenged to read!
I started book one on Wednesday 
and finished it Thurday afternoon. 
I began book 2 yesterday afternoon
and finished it this evening.
Baskin Robbins is looking better 
by the day. Watch out Mr. Ken!!

My reading takes place around the

other activities I have on my "get
accomplished" list. Lots going on 
in the house because it is too wet to 
go outside. I feel like Sally and her
brother in The Cat in the Hat!

Please keep those in the flooded 

areas in your prayers.

A Challenge


School is out as most of you 

know soooo hopefully I can 
post more often!

So Mr. Ken asked me yesterday 

what I had planned for the Summer, 
I rattled off a list of things I hope to 
get accomplished. One of them being 
to read 50 books. Now Mr. Ken knows 
how much I love to read and that I am 
a pretty fast reader but being the feisty
fella he is he said to me "That is a lot 

of books--do you think you can read 
that many before you go back to 
school?"  Well, I said "Of course I can 
read 50 books, are you challenging me 
here?" He said "Well, yes I am." 
After much discussion on this challenge 
here is the deal:
If I read 50 books--they must be adult 
books no kid books. I get to go to Baskin 
Robbins and Mr. Ken will have to buy me 
whatever I choose, if I don't then Mr. Ken 
gets to choose what he wants and I have 
to buy. I hope he has his pennies saved 
because I WILL NOT be losing this

If you would like to join in reading 50 

books this summer, let me know. I will 
be posting updates on Fridays and let 
you know when I have found a goodie.

What Color is Your Nose?

As you can see by the picture, 
mine is RED for Red Nose Day.

I am sure that you have seen 
the commercials for today. 
Walgreen's is a sponsor for all 
this fun by selling Red Noses  
that money goes to the Red Nose 
Day Fund-a program of Comic 
Relief Inc.
On a serious note Red Nose Day 
helps children living in poverty. 
All monies raised from today go 
to charities in the U. S. and over-

Some of those charities are :
Boys and Girls Clubs of America
charity : water
Children's Health Fund

A Surprise!


We have returned! Got back 

in town at 10:00 pm last night.

Let me introduce you to "Wild

Rose", she lives in our backyard
and look what she did while 
we were gone! 

On Friday the roses had not 
bloomed, but with all the rain 
we had, many made an appear-
ance while we were gone.

Such a nice surprise.

When I moved over here, this bush 
was on the fence line with another.
But when we moved them, this one 
survived the other one did not. 
We don't do a whole lot to pamper 
her, water and trims here and there. 
That's it. Hence the name "Wild Rose."

Plus, there are still buds that will
bloom soon.

So, so. so PRETTY!!

Thanks, Wild Rose for the surprise 
this afternoon!

Hitting the Road AGAIN!


We are back from our trip
to Oklahoma. The standout 
event for this trip was the 

I will have a separate post 
on the Oklahoma family 
reunion trip at a later date.

THIS weekend we are on the 
road again---

This time we are off to Illinois 
for a double graduation and 
birthday celebration for one 
of Mr. Ken's best friend's son.

This young man is an extremely 
intelligent guy! He will graduate 
from high school AND Jr. College
this weekend plus we will get to
help celebrate his 18th birthday!

We don't see this family often due
their location and Ken's friend is
in the Army so they are always
on the move.

Looking forward to the weekend.
Hoping for better weather that 
we had on our trip to Oklahoma.

Please keep us in your prayers 
for safe travels they helped while 
we were fighting with hard rain, 
wind, lighting and thunder plus 

There will also be a post on this 
trip too.

Spring Cleaning---Part 4 and 5

Thursday's Tip

For the Kitchen:

Stainless Steel Appliances

For streak free appliances,
use a soft cloth with vinegar
and wipe in the direction of 
the grain.


For those stuck on pieces,
use a toothpick to dislodge
anything hanging around.

Stinky Garbage Disposal

Toss in a 1/2 orange or lemon,
turn on the disposal to grind 
up the rind now you have citrus 
smelling disposal. we do this
a lot. Some say it also helps
to sharpen the blade.

Office---Work or Home



*Mr Ken's biggest rule
Please do not eat or drink 
over the keyboard. Neither 
is good if something spilled.
Q-tips dipped in a small bit 
of rubbing alcohol can be 
used between the keys.


Using equal parts vinegar to 
water and a microfiber cloth. 
Wipe the cool monitor to de 
smudge it.

Use sanitizing wipes to clean 

phones, tablets, cell phones
and remotes.

*For those of who don't know,

Mr. Ken lives and breathes 
computers at work each day.

Friday's Tip


Use the dust first then vacuum
Go through your closets and 
drawers,donate anything that
is not worn any longer.

My favorite:

To clean a ceiling fan-place an 
old pillowcase over each blade, 
wipe clean-all the dust from the 
blades stays in the case and 
doesn't flutter all over the place.
Take the pillowcase outside, shake 
out and throw in the laundry.

Hope you have enjoyed this series.

Did you find something helpful?

Happy Cleaning!!!
