Happy Anniversary!

Happy One Year Anniversary to our mudpuppy GINGER.  It's been a long year.... a BLAST!

July Book ~ REWORK

Loved this book.  End of story.  OK, I will expand on that for you...
This is actually a business book but when I read it it came to me how many different areas of my life it applied to.  And before you get your knickers in a knot, it's like the anti-business book.

It was written by Jason Fried and David Hansson, the ideas presented only take up a page or two at a time so it's really easy to pick up and put down as you have time.

Here's a list of some of the "chapters":
Why Grow?
Make a Dent in the Universe
Live it or Leave it
Meetings are Toxic
Press Releases are Spam
How to say you're Sorry
Send people Home at 5

... and the list goes on.  I picked it up because I own my business, I love reading about economics, and it came highly recommended.  I wasn't disappointed.  Check for it at your library, I found it at mine!

Bag Lady!

My friend Wendy sent this to me and I have to say I'm lovin it... try it out, it works, and we can all use more bags to lug our mommy stuff around in, I mean really.

Squatters

I went to BBQ pizza a little while ago. The boys and I made dough in the a.m. so I was all ready by dinner.  I strolled over to the BBQ to light er' up and found this....

I proceed to yell at Dave... what kinda crap have you put in my BBQ?  To which he gives me one of those .... "I have no idea what you're ranting about" looks.

Then it all became clear...

Now I can hear the question rolling around in your head... did she light it?  The answer is NO.  We removed the herd, had a nice little talk about appropriate nesting areas and I pulled out a cast iron skillet and made skillet pizza.  We ate a little later that night. 
I guess the moral of this little story is if you don't use your stuff... somebody else will.

New Girl in Town

Come meet Mia aka: Sonic Sally Mia because everyone has an opinion on what she should be called.  We are hogsitting her for the summer and we are in love!  She's a bit spikey, but very lovable. She spends evenings running around our bed, hiding under pillows and trying to burrow into Dave's shirt.  Priceless.

June Book ~ The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson. This was a great read if you like a mystery.... it is a bit gorry and some parts were very disturbing ~ so be warned (overall nothing you wouldn't see during prime time TV).  I hear they are making it into a movie again, it would make a great movie in my opinion.

There is a lot to the storyline and I wouldn't know how to go about telling it... so.... there is a great synopsis HERE on wikipedia.

I will be looking for the next one in the series.... "The Girl Who Played With Fire".

No Waste shopping at Bulk Barn

I recently viewed a video on Facebook of a supermarket that creates no waste.  All of the containers are reusable and you simply fill, use, ...
