Lady Gaga singing toothbrush.


Today I went to the 99 cent store. I love those caramel Nips that they sell. I ran out so I went to buy more. They didn’t have any though. They had butter rum flavor, so I bought those. (They are not as good as the caramel flavor). (Sigh……)

So I thought, “Humm, I need a toothbrush, so I went to the toothbrush isle. I saw a box with Lady Gaga on it and it was a musical toothbrush. It plays two Lady Gaga songs. I bought it. I went home and took it out of the box and brushed my teeth. I played “Bad Romance” while I brushed my teeth. It was kind of neat. It kind of gets you to bushing your teeth to the beat. It is kind of loud though.


Happy New Year

It snowed about 6 inches the other day. It is cold now. I want to go outside and take down my Christmas lights but it will be a high of 50 degrees on Saturday, so I  will wait. Today is a high of 30F and it is 21 degrees outside right now. It did get to 33 degrees today.) It was 13 degrees last night, an hour before midnight. I took my tripod with my camera outside to take a picture of my Christmas lights. I took a few pictures and ran inside to warm up. I wrapped lights around the posts on my front porch. I wrapped red tinsel around them. Then tied big red bows on. Then I got some big red lights and wrapped them around the top. I took two strings of white lights around each column. My husband said it looks like a candle with the red flame on top.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow


, , ,

The Weekly photo challenge is yellow. With this week’s challenge, show us what yellow means to you.

I went to the grocery store and went to the lemons. There were a few people around, but I got out my camera and took a couple of pictures of the lemons. Then I walked off. I bet they all thought “Why is that crazy lady taking a picture of the lemons.”


Because they are yellow, that is why. Then I noticed there are yellow lights on my Christmas tree so of course I took a picture of them. I am sure this picture does not really shout YELLOW, but it is.


2 new chairs



My hubby wanted to go to RC Wiley to look at chairs for the living room. We got in the car and went to look at them. I got a chair for my bedroom about a year ago and it was like $300. They really raised their prices. The cheapest chair was $400 and up, way up. We saw one we liked but it was $500, so if we got two chairs it was $1000 plus tax. I said “Let’s go look at Big Lots to see if they have any. We drove over there. They sell furniture there. I got a new bed a month ago there for $400. It is the best bed I have ever bought. It is great and my back does not hurt sleeping on it. It is a Serta and it was on sale when I bought it. When we went to Big Lots it was the Saturday after black Friday. I found a chair I really liked. It is brown and it is the material that looks like leather, but it is not. I hate leather furniture. It is cold to sit on. While we were looking at the chair the salesman came over and changed the price. He said it was on sale for $100 off. The advertised price was in the paper. It was now $269. He only had one left. I said “Sold”. We bought it and took it home. I called another store and they had one too. I went right over and bought it. We had a love seat and moved it and put the two chairs where the love seat was. It is very comfortable to sit in. I love getting stuff at a great price. The chairs were made in USA so that is even better.

Wild horses and a rainbow.

The other day, I dropped my son off at school. I saw a rainbow in the sky, so I drove about a mile past the school. The road ended, so I parked the car and got out to take a picture of the rainbow. The mountains were covered in snow, the air was crisp and clear. It was just drizzling rain.

There were a lot of wild horses standing around. They were kind of far, so I used the zoom on my camera to take a picture of them.

The tan horse was all alone. He must have been kicked out of the group. He just stood there, so still. So alone. Horses like to stay in groups, but they do kick horses out of their group

I hate waking up to a crappy dream.


, ,

I was dreaming some stupid dream this morning. I was at work and I had to type up some kind of check. I didn’t know what to do, so I did it wrong and my boss was yelling at me to do it over and I was freaking out because she would not show me how to do it, what form to get. I went over to some drawer with forms and there were hundreds of them to choose from. Then my alarm went off. “Whew! Thank goodness I didn’t have to deal with that mess.” I don’t even have a job let alone never one like that. My eyes were all dry. It felt like I had sand in them. I don’t hardly remember dreams and I had to remember one that was not worth remembering. It is 14 degrees warmer this morning than the last two mornings. It is 34F. Yesterday it was 20F and the day before was 14F so there is a little warming trend. I was up late last night. I have trying to put the 3M library cloud on my Kindle for a while now. I finally found some directions on the internet on how to put it on. I once called Amazon and they could not help me get it on. I guess they only want you to use their system so they won’t really help you get it on your Kindle. I did find the directions at Just use your library when you log on. I signed up for the Nevada state library and they only have that 3M cloud library to give you e-books. My regular library uses Overdrive. Sometimes I like to have other options to check out a book. The 3M selection has a rather sparse selection though. I checked out a book on baking bread. I am going to make rolls for Thanksgiving. I was going to go out to eat on Thanksgiving. It was going to be about $75 for the 3 of us. My husband got a Butterball turkey breast for $12 the other day. It comes in a bag and you bake it for 2 hours and it even has a bag of turkey gravy. It tasted so good. I said “Go get another one, we will make it for Thanksgiving dinner. It was so easy to make. We went to the store (Walmart) and bought another one. I took a picture of it to show you. turkey
You don’t have to thaw it, you don’t have to touch the turkey, just put it in a pan, in the bag, and bake it. It is covered in a baking bag. I like that, and it tastes great.

My son came up to me the other day and said “Come see the beautiful horses.” I grabbed my camera and went across the street. They were by this wash standing there. The male was standing there so I didn’t go real close to take his picture. I didn’t want him running away.
The other horses were further away but they are beautiful.

Weekly photo challenge: Minimalist


, , ,

The Weekly photo challenge is Minimalist
An artfully executed minimalist photograph is anything but mundane. It illustrates a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace.

Minimalist photography is characterized by a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer.


Seaweed washes up on the beach.
This bird just stood and watched me, for a long time.
