I woke up to the crackle of thunder. Rain was hammering the roof and though it sounded like the hoof beats of horses there for awhile, it was still soothing.
The plants have been well watered, and I hope I don’t have to go out and water again today. The rain is a medicinal elixir to them. Water from the hose simply hydrates them.
In my opinion, a grouping of candles is always more attractive then just one or two candles. It just makes more of an impact.
In the candle grouping above, I placed same colored candles in a wooden tray and added clear marbles around and in between them.
I like the effect of the marbles being touched by the light of the flickering flame.
This isn’t at all decorative, but someone asked to see my window air conditioner. Here it is. It isn’t all that big. I measured and it is 11 and 3/4 by 15 and 3/4. I like that it is on the small side and not too obvious.
I can lower the blinds over it and close the curtains when not using it.
My son-in-law drilled it into the window, and then drilled a screw above it over on the side of the window so no one can lift the window from the outside.
People have mentioned that someone could break in by coming through the window, but that is unlikely with what he did to prevent it.
The white you see on either side of the air conditioner is duct tape. Lots and lots of duct tape.
You’re given material to put on either side of the air conditioner to keep bugs out and air in, as well as gray foam insulation.
I used at least half a roll of white duct tape over all of that that I bought at Ace Hardware.
When I use duct tape, I always think more is better. And I can tell you, every teeny tiny gap is covered with white duct tape, probably many times over.
Charlie is not at all fond of having his photo taken. I usually take 4-5 photos of him, and maybe one will not be blurry. This is the one.
Well, the post yesterday about Walmart, possibly titled as it was, seems to have garnered a lot of attention. Maybe people found it when googling Walmart. Because it got a lot of hits.
I always think that the comments at the bottom of my posts are about as or more interesting and informative as the post itself. So there seemed to be a lot of people reading what we have to say.
Not a bright shining moment for Walmart.
I may just be a 61 year old woman with a blog, but I tend to be loud and persistent. And you, my dear readers, are quite vocal as well, so thanks to all of you who commented with your own experiences.
Big business may have the propensity to knock us down, but we don’t take the insult without there being consequences. We are a strong group of women who rise up and punch back.
Here’s to us…
