David taped this short video of Lilly the other day. She acts just like my childhood dog Sparkey did with the sprinkler.

We had a wonderful mini vacation in Atlanta, hitting the zoo, World of Coke and a Hawks basketball game. The zoo was free thanks to a partnership with the Georgia PINES library system. Check out the zoo DVD, return it and get a voucher valid for zoo admission for two adults and two children.

Once again, I've been seriously slacking off on the menu planning! I went to the grocery store last night for dairy and produce but now that I've taken a look at my freezer, I realized I am almost totally out of meat! I will be cooking up the five pounds of ground turkey I bought last month and making meatballs, tacos and spaghetti sauce.

I can't stand the chemically smell of household cleaners so I have taken to making most of my own. I still buy toilet bowl cleaner, it seems to be the only thing to get rid of the toilet ring and keep the bowl clean all week. I recently made two bottles of shower daily spray shower for each of our bathrooms. Tip: DO NOT buy spray bottles from the Dollar Store. They are totally junk and don't work. Walmart carries much better bottles for the same cheap price of one dollar.
So far, this seems to be working great and I don't see the normal pink buildup around the shower head anymore.
Recipe from Frugal Upstate. She has two other versions on her website.
2TBS Dish Detergent
2TBS Liquid Fabric Softener
3 1/2 C Water
Mix and spray daily
Some sources suggested that since vinegar is acidic it can eat into your tub’s caulk, while others say they’ve used it for years with no issues.
There's nothing like the look and smell of fresh flowers in your home. Every time I'm at Kroger I make a quick pass through the floral department to see if they have any flowers with bright orange "Manager's Special" stickers screaming at me to buy them.
They didn't last as long as I would have liked because we went out of town for four days and I couldn't change the water and plant food. But they were perfect while they lasted!
