My new toy

As I mentioned in an earlier post our tenant left & took the washing machine that was part of the contract on our house so Popster took my washing machine & told me I could go out & buy whatever I wanted. I could have really taken that literally but he knows me too well. The last thing I wanted to do was go shopping for a dumb washing machine. I had better things to do like sew, pick out tile, light fixtures, ceiling fan, furniture.......not buy a washing machine. 
I did some research on line over the weekend & originally was set on buying an HE top loader (no agitator)but after reading the pros & cons decided maybe an HE front loader was a better idea. Armed with my new found knowledge I headed out Mon morning to buy it. I left home at 9:30 am & had  bought it & was back in my car on the way to the market at 10:13am.  I was not wasting any time!  I also did a total about face & bought a top loader. It was bigger, had all the same features & I didn't have to spend &250 on a stupid pedestal so I wouldn't have to bend down to put my clothes in the washer!!!
It was delivered yesterday & after looking at it I decided with all the options it has why isn't there one that sorts the laundry for you?   If it can sense if there's a stain on something why can't it sense when you mix darks in with your "tighty whiteys"???? 

I hope Popster isn't waiting for any clean socks as I need a couple more days to study up for my first load!


  1. that's a posh one. Put Popster in first if he comes out squeaky clean with no wrinkles I'll go next!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
