My love of everything gaudy may have hit an all time high
(or low depending how you look at it).
I had a muted, dull colored Martha Stewart shower curtain.
See below.
It's never really been my style.

I usually like things bright and cheery. So I took down the dull Martha Stewart and replaced it with this $15.99 Walmart "so bright it's blinding" shower curtain.

When you walk by this bathroom now, it's almost startling. But...hey it wasn't expensive and I can change it in a heartbeat if I decide I don't like it.

What do you guys think, has my love for gaud gone too far?

I love spring and all the beautiful flowers and blooming trees. Here are some examples from Bo's yard.

Spring has sprung and I have proof! Check it out!
Got some cool pictures of Bo's barn today. Stopped in to say hey and see how the guys have been. Just happened to have my camera with me so I snapped a few shots.

Here they are!

Who doesn't love to relax in the bathtub? Wouldn't it be great if each of us had a spa tub with some soothing lights to soak in from time to time.....


Check them out! I found them at:

Here's what the website says about them:

Mood lighting can turn a relaxing soak in the tub into a indulgent, decadent treat. With handy suction cups and a waterproof body, these beautiful Spa Lights will transform bath time from lush to mega-lush.

Use the suction cup to attach Spa Lights to the sides of the bath or against the tiles in your shower and enjoy their warm yellow glow... alternatively let them float freely onto of the water for a more organic, oriental feel. Spa Lights come as a pack of two, and one set of batteries will give you a healthy 120 hours of relaxing, fun and beautiful lighting.

Has everyone heard of MENSA - the organization for the "exceptionally gifted" and so called "smart people"? Well I found the most hysterical thing on the net today.

It's called NotMensa - the Interplanetary Society for the Stupid! Some of their "slogans" are priceless.

  • NotMensa - Are you stupid enough to join?
  • NotMensa - The Place where it's ok to talk without thought
So I share this with a few of my most sarcastic co-workers. We decide we should take the IQ test to see if we are dumb enough to qualify for membership.

I don't think I've laughed so hard in a LONG time! Maybe it was just the company I was with that made it exceptionally funny to me. Some of the questions were just ridiculously funny! Question number 10 caught me completely off guard!

Check it out if you need a good laugh!

So the other night, I'm stumbling into our dark bedroom...oh 'round 2:30 am when CRACK - my little toenail and the heel of Rich's "in the middle of my path - where they are not supposed to be" dress shoe meet in a quite untimely fashion.

"OW!!!" (and other un-named curse words) cross my lips in the darkened room.

Laying in bed, with what I think is a cracked toenail and feeling my heart beating in my toe, I think to myself...."I wish I had a toe light." Then my brain really kicked into 2:30 am insanity and came up with these ideas:
  • A light toe ring. I don't know, not really into toe rings and how could I keep it on top of my toe, shining in the right direction?
  • "An ankle strap flashlight?" Might cause me to exercize one calf more than the other..and who wants to lug that thing around? "This won't work", I think to myself.
  • A robe with rope light in the hem. I don't wear robes and I don't plan to just so I can see at night on my way to bed. Plus rope lighting might weigh the robe down and the material from the robe will dull the lights. This isn't the answer.

Well, I found it. I found exactly what I need!

Houseslippers with headlights!!!!!!!

Check out this video to see them in action. These are for REAL!

I can't tell you how many times I've been sitting here at my computer, cravin' up some good fondue but completely unwilling to tear myself away from the internet. Do I eat, do I surf...that is the question!!!

Well ask no more, people!!! Finally someone has come up with a USB powered Fondue pot! Goodbye hunger....hello Fondue!!

P.S. I don't think this is real...but I couldn't resist getting you all excited about computer-heated fondue!

(I admit, I'm completely addicted to lipstick, lip balm etc...
I think I'll take a pass on this one however!)

Here are some pictures of the hail that hit our house just before 11pm tonight. It hailed so hard I thought out windows and skylights were going to crack!

Luckily I put my car and the truck in the garage so they didn't get damaged. That was some crazy hail storm!!

The storms tonight gave off quite a show. Wish I could have captured some of the sky to ground lightning but I was driving so....I decided not to take pictures and drive at the same time. I did stop long enough to get a couple of great shots at sunset. I'm calling these:

Two Storms that Pass in the Night:

I get up for work at 6:30. Before Saturday night's time change, I always awoke to the beautiful sunrise and birdies singing. Now...thanks to Eastern Standard time, I get up in the dark. It looks like winter when I get up. I don't like it, people!
I wany my hour back!
