More Cute Shoes

Picture of the Day for 7/27/2014. Once again, I was mesmerized by the shoes worn by the woman who was teaching the Relief Society lesson in church today. She was wearing a navy blue blazer with a striped lining over a dress with navy blue stripes. She paired this outfit with these orange shoes. I want these shoes! They would actually come in handy for my niece Corinne's wedding this Saturday as her colors are orange and gray. So, I have a practical reason for coveting these shoes. Really...

Unlikely Odds

Picture of the Day for 7/26/2014. I was changing the mattress pad and sheets today and when I was putting them on the bed, I correctly guessed the correct side the first time for both the pad and the bottom sheet. This never happens. I usually end up trying to to put the short side on the long side of the bed. I'm not explaining this very well, am I? You get the point though. This was the first time ever I didn't go through my usual complicated wrestling process to get the pad and bottom sheet on the bed. It's one of the reasons I hate this particular household task.

Really Big Hair

Picture of the Day for 7/25/2014. At any given time in the privacy of my own home I wear my hair piled on top of my head. I outdid myself tonight in the tower of hair I was able to create.

Cooking "Hard Boiled" Eggs

Picture of the Day for 7/24/2014. I've been seeing articles on the internet lately about cooking "hard boiled" eggs rather than boiling them in water. I decided to give it a try and my oh my, cooking them in muffin tins at 325 degrees for 30 minutes (and cooling them down immediately by putting them in a bowl with ice cubes) produced the most divinely perfect eggs. I will never boil eggs again.

Alligator Figurines

Picture of the Day for 7/23/2014. I saw these silver alligator figurines at Ross discount store. I thought they would be a PERFECT wedding gift for my niece Corinne who HATES alligators and has claimed she will NEVER set foot in Florida. Her fiance was totally on board with this. He said he could hide them in the shower to torment Corinne.

There is a precedent for hiding things in the shower to torment Corinne. Check out this past blog entry for details.

Mystery Branches

Picture of the Day for 7/22/2014. I often find mystery branches in my yard which I know aren't coming from my trees. This came in handy the other day as I needed something to prop up a poor plant of mine that's grown too tall and is too top heavy to remain upright. I went outside and found the perfect branch for the job. It's like I have my own personal branch store. Hmm...wonder what else I can do/make with the branches.

No Navajo Tacos for Me

Picture of the Day for 7/21/2014. I was driving home from the gym when I saw a sign for Navajo tacos. 

Hey! I like Navajo tacos so I decided to investigate. 

I followed the signs, but there were no Navajo tacos to be found. Sigh.

I finally found a sign indicating that the Navajo tacos were being sold as part of a fund-raising effort and I had missed the event by a couple of days. Dang. No Navajo tacos for me. 

Now all I can think about are Navajo tacos.
