Spice it up

Cleaning out my kitchen cupboards to do the dreaded job of changing the shelf paper, is not a favorite chore for me. I’m much rather cook for my army of a family and clean up after alone, than do this task. Then and there I decided I totally need more organization in my spice cabinet and room for more spices. In other words, I needed more spice racks!

I am a collector of spices. I don’t care what kind it is, if it sounds interesting I buy it. I love to go to various stores and look at the interesting spices from all over the world. But this time shopping, I was looking for the perfect spice rack. Since I knew that it would take me hours and hours to get out of the store if I went, I opted for the online shopping. I sort of got lost for a few days instead of the mere hours it would have taken me in the regular store. The internet can be pretty cool for things like this, I must admit!

I debated about about the certain kitchen spice racks I wanted to get, and kept going back and forth between pages. (Can you imagine what I do in stores? LOL). I loved so many of them and of course wanted to keep the spending down to just what I needed. I finally made up my mind and bought some great items. Now I have more room. My beloved spices are somewhat organized, and I even have an idea how to use the racks and bottles for holding my little sewing do dads! Am I finally getting organized????  Scary thought for my family, but indeed no doubt a welcome change from my clutter!

Happy labor day

I want to wish you all a Happy and Safe Labor Day. To me, this has been just another day. I can’t stand that people party, drive drunk and just in general make it unsafe for others to even attempt to be on the roads these holidays. It totally sucks.

Today I spent the day putzing around and cleaning. The kids go to their first half day of school tomorrow and I’m not feeling the greatest. But indeed I hope ya’ll had a great weekend and keep safe.

Can find me now

For years I have had problems with people trying to find our house. It isn’t hard, believe me. Even the mail carriers have had mix ups and my mail hasn’t been delivered to my home but to the neighbors homes. I’ve had people try to come visit, only to call after they have passed my house and have had to call to ask where I am located. I decided to get an address plaque.

I am very particular about my yard, as my flower and herb gardens are in the front yard, so I wanted something that would “fit” with the yard decor. I looked at wall address plaques, but then didn’t really want to attach anything to the siding, because in truth I was afraid I was going mess it up due to my lack of skill in that area.

While browsing the net, I came across the most awesome address signs! Big enough for people to see, but not too big as to take up room reserved for my flowers. I think these are great solution’s for anyone who has a problem with failed mail delivery or who have friends who can’t follow directions! :)

I need a vacation

Recently my sister and her husband vacationed in Myrtle Beach and had a wonderful time. She told me all about her stay there and when I asked her how she had found just the right place to stay for the duration of their visit there, she turned me on to the so I could look it over.

Since I love the beach and the water, I decided to check it out since I have never been to Myrtle Beach and from what she had told me about her vacation, it sounded really great! I kicked the idea around a bit then typed in, as I really don’t like going to places I don’t have information on and have never visited. Sure looks good to me!

There is a plus side to it also. My husband is not the kind who likes sand between his toes much, and they have great golf packages he can check out! I’m definitely contemplating taking my much needed vacation to Myrtle Beach now!
