"Ahhh Mo-Jo, you're are such a good boy!"
I hear my husband say this many times every day!

And it's absolutely true!

Snicker Doodle Day


My house is embellished with the smells of cinnamon and sugar today! I just got done making a batch of snicker doodles! My husband loves, loves these! As one of my presents to my guys, I try to give them ten days of baking before Christmas. I am a little late this year so I will have to double up! Yesterday, I made a batch of English toffee.............it was delightful!

Have to take Landon to the dentist this afternoon and tomorrow. A couple of his fillings popped out and they have to be put back in.

Merry Christmas Week

This is just one of my favorite pictures of Mo-Jo. It was taken two years ago when he was two. I used a point and shoot camera. I would like to do another one this year with my DSLR camera but we are just getting our first actual snow and it's just a light dusting so far. Busy today making potato water biscuits and apple pie for a family party. The house smells like cinnamon and spice!

I have decided to add a tip here and there on my blog on how to better cope with today's economy. Just little things, a thought here and there, but they can sure add up!


Today's tip would be to turn off all lights and electrical appliances etc. that do not need to be on. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

Lights Turned Off?

Hello Monday!

Vintage Fire


We have had lots of rain over the weekend and the ground is soaked. It is supposed to get close to 50 today! And just last week, we were in the teens! My husband finished up the painting on the bedroom. Now, its time to tackle the floor. Everything from that room is still all over the house. Hopefully, it will be done by Wednesday, time permitting.

Today's tip would be to evaluate the cell phone plan that you have based on your needs. I have a pay as you go plan. I'm not big on talking on a cell phone but I do want one for emergencies. I don't need a plan with lots of minutes each month. With my provider, if I recharge my phone the day before my minutes expire, all of my minutes roll over. I have lots of minutes! They may cost me more per minute than some plans but this really works out best for me. I only have to recharge my phone every three months and I can do it by phone or on-line.

Got Cell Phone Plan?

Thursday


Kreol Glass Earrings


Well, the high today will only be about 21 degrees! It's still a bit windy and we have flurries! My husband is painting a bedroom this week and laying a new floor. The furniture from that room is everywhere!.....in our bedroom, in the living room.....so much fun to navigate around here!

Today's tip would be to look into having a higher deductible on your car and house insurance. It has really reduced our monthly premiums.

Middle of the Week Day

I have been extremely busy just because it is that time of the year. It was freezing here yesterday and much warmer today. But, today's wind will blow you away! On the way home, I say lawn cushions and trash cans just rolling around. Who knows where they came from? It's been sunny and cloudy, back and forth all day. Just another example of life in Ohio!

Today's tip would be to write a list before I go shopping. I'm on a budget and I need to stick to it! If an item is on the list and not on sale and I can do without it for a week, I circle that item and add it to the list for next week when I get home. I usually write things down on my list when I take the last one off the shelf so I have some time to find it for an acceptable purchase price.


Got a List?

Today's tip would be to get out the Christmas cards that we received from last year and use them as gift tags for this year's presents. I use my special scrap booking scissors with the decorative edges on them. I love to recycle things!


Got Old Christmas Cards?

Love these earrings. The beads are two toned and the ear wires are elongated. They are very light weight and comfortable to wear.

Today's tip would be to drink water instead of soda. Its better for your health and your teeth! If we have lemons available, I love to put a slice in my glass with ice cubes!

Today's tip would be to purchase food items in bulk and to cook in bulk....saves money and time! Why make one meatloaf when its almost just as easy to make two? I do this for lasagna and homemade soups. One is for tonight and one goes into the freezer for when I have little time to cook.
