Happy Boys’ Day!

My New Floor Cleaner

I did say that we moved right?  My husband and I purchased a new home and some of our things I got rid of and bought new once we got into the new house, almost A YEAR later.

One of my new toys is a Hoover® FloorMate® Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner.

When we lived back in Hawaii I had the older model, the FloorMate®SpinScrub®, but it didn’t come with us back then… and for some reason, I never bought another until now.

Our new house has wall-to-wall Ceramic Tile and this puppy is a whiz at getting it CLEAN!!

Can you see that yucky, nasty, dirty water tank?  ACK! emoticon-yuck   They said that the construction crew hired someone to clean our house just before we took possession.  The first thing we did when we got here was to clean the place from top to bottom, really.  My husband helped me, and we cleaned EVERYTHING!  The ceilings, walls, and then lastly the floors.  This baby makes cleaning hard surfaced floors a breeze.

*Disclaimer: I do not represent Hoover® or any other companies in anyway.  I do not attach any advertisements to my blog (now I find out that WordPress does, so sorry for that).  I do not receive any compensation for my own personal views of any products that appear on my blog posts.  I just like ’em and want to share, that’s all.  😉

Update To My Blog

I started to think about a comment that one of my blog’s followers, Krystle @ Pictures & Plane Tickets, made awhile back, that she doesn’t eat meat.  I know several folks who simply do not care for meat, be it the texture, the smell; my niece can’t stand to touch any sort of raw animal flesh.  I remember someone telling me that people who eat meat have a different sort of smell to them, HMMM, interesting.

Anyways, so I did some updates to all of my posts from the past 4 fours, to include Categories and Tags for Pescetarian Dishes as well as Vegetarian Dishes.  Now everyone can check out older posts that may suit their tastes better.

Enjoy!

Happy Lunar New Year

We got our Lai See, I can’t believe that I found this here in the middle of the desert.  Now if I could just find a Lion Dance somewhere with in 50 miles of our new home  😉

 

They Say That You Start To Look Alike As You Age

My husband and I have been together now for nearly 30 years, Yup!

I was reading an article not so long ago (I think it was in the AARP magazine as a matter of fact, HA!) that as couples age, they start to look alike.

Oh My GOSH! We've started to dress alike!

I can not tell you how many times my husband and I have gotten dressed for the day (we have separate dressing areas) and come out with similar clothing on!  Some times we don’t even notice until someone else points this out, like Mrs. DF when we all had gone out one Sunday afternoon and she turns to me and says, “You two are so funny.  Do you always dress alike?”

Enjoy your day!

What’s Your Weather Like?

We had an unbelievable Thunder Storm last night, with loads of rain along with it … the desert can always use rain!  When we woke up this morning, we saw this

Morning Fog in the Canyon

or maybe I should say that we didn’t see the canyon at all!  The fog was so thick and eerie, when I looked out the kitchen window, I thought I was somewhere else entirely.

Very cool!

Where’s My Grill?

I may or may not have shared that my husband and I have sold our home and have moved to Central/Northern Arizona back in May.  Technically, we’re still “In the middle of the desert”, now it’s the High Desert.

As we were packing up all of our things in preparation for our big move, I made the decision that my Weber Little Smokey Joe grill would not be coming with us.

So I made up some handwritten “FREE” signs for him and his pal Weber Rapidfire Chimney and took them out to the main road from our place. I also left in the Chimney, the remains of the bag of charcoal and the stick lighter on the side of the road at a predominate intersection.
I bet my DH that they would be gone within 5 minutes… guess who won the bet?
They weren’t there 3 minutes (I clocked it) and they were GONE!

So, here we are going into Fall, and I still do not have a grill, neither charcoal nor propane.  Why do I tell this story at this juncture?  One of my blogging pals, Patrons of the Pit, was astonished that anyone could last this long without grilling.  My husband has already stated, numerous times, that the first we buy once our home is finished, is a pretty new grill.
