Eclipse Curtains

Hey Everyone,

Where I live, Redding CA, is a HOT place to live.  There are many of times when it has been over 100 degrees.  My room gets so hot because of the sun shining through every morning causes the air conditioner to always run which causes a high bill for that month.  I had dark colored curtains hanging up which didn't help what so ever.  So I have found these curtains called Eclipse Curtains which they have at Walmart, Target, a few other stores.  They work GREAT!!!  They keep the heat out of our room which helps because the air conditioner isnt running constantly and now the bill has been so much cheaper than it was when I had regular curtains hanging up.  The air conditioner now stays at 75 degrees and hardly runs. The room we are in gets to be the hottest room of the house. Even though, the curtains are on the pricey side, $44 per panel, its the best investment anyone can make. Better yet, I got each panel on sale for $23 plus an additional 5% off with using my Target card!  What a DEAL!!!

Back up and Running

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all have had a wonderful and safe 4th of July.  I know I did!  Its amazing to have freedom in our lives!!!!  Lets all enjoy it!!   I finally got situated enough in my new home, in Redding CA, so I will start blogging again.  I appreciate all of your patience with me through this time of year.  It sure has been a positive and a great learning experience moving to my new place. On the way, I have gained a great roommate, and great friends. Living here for a little over a month now which I still am getting used to the heat.  Today, its 105.  Im so use to San Francisco weather, but I am adjusting just fine.  I will see you in the blogs.

Monthly TCC

Yesterday, I had done a T.C.C. So what is a TCC anyway. A TCC is a monthly tough closet clean up. Its basically a closet which is used for multi- purposes. Lets take my closet for instance. It acts as a linen closet, utility closet, laundry supplies, bath soaps, lotions, and a few other things that really doesn't go in the linen department. The closet acts as a space where to put things that not yet, has a home. So here is a really good tip to use when you have space that is used like this one. Take five minutes and go through to see what items can be used up before the end of the month. Example: In my closet, I have found a travel size shampoo and conditioner I have received as a gift from my handsome boyfriend one year. I don't travel so I wont be saving it for that reason so I pulled it out and put it in my bathroom so the next time I have a bathing session, I can use it. I recommend making time at least one a month to do this so you don't get overstocked on things you don't really use.

Cookie Bakers

When I bake cookies, especially peanut butter cookies, the dough gets stuck on the spoon/ice cream scooper. So what I have found to work for this situation is to spray your spoon/ice cream scooper, or what ever you use, with non stick cooking spray. Then I cover the inside of the scooper and the outside with flour. It works great! Not only is it easier but makes for a happier baker.

When Times Get Rough

Okay so we have good times and bad times. Some times the bad seems very bad which it could be worse as we try and think of worse things that could happen. Sometimes we may read in to something that may or may not be there. So when he have rough times, we go to our support team, like family and friends. Well, tonight, I have called up a very dear from of mine, got a few things off my chest that was bothering me and her response was very clever if you ask me. She said, let it pass like gas. Well, ok....... with that said. Toot Toot!! And you know, shes right. Not only did it remind of me, of not to let things get to me, but she made me laugh which made me feel better. She is amazing!!
