New Bedspread

Standard

I’ve had my quilt for while and now and could never find a dust ruffle that I liked.  So when I found this bedspread with matching shams I was quite happy.  It’s light weight and matches my walls perfectly – both colors are called “Blush”. Ahhhh done!

Wowww

I was shocked again! Twice in one week – 1st toilet paper and now a gift from work!  It’s an outdoor bluetooth speaker with the emblem of a “lineman”.  What a wonderful surprise and it works great!! Thanks Sturgeon 😉

 

SCORE!

SCORE! I made a run to the grocery store yesterday after work – I was happily shocked when I saw Charmin TP!!  I could only buy one but I’ve never been so happy to see toilet paper! LOL  It’s been at least a month since I saw TP on the shelves AND they had Bounty Paper towels – WOW – it was a win win kinda day! LOL

Ohhhhh YES I Did!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS! 🙂

Since I had to go to my office today to pick up some stuff . . . I wassss already out so I thought I’d stop by and support one of my local small businesses! LOL    This week – Left to right: Chilled Sugar Cookie w/Cadbury Mini Eggs, Chilled Coconut Lime, Caramel Popcorn and last but not least Buckeye Brownie – You’re Welcome LOLLLLL

WOW Me Wednesday!

Since I can’t (shouldn’t) go anywhere after work and since I have toooo many eggs – time to bake.  I actually saw JoJo on Facebook making these cookies and I just happened to have her cookbook (Thank you Bensons)!

I always use the Tollhouse recipe but I have to say, these are even easier! I didn’t have “unsalted” butter so I used my regular salted butter and omitted the salt AND it’s only 1 stick of butter! All brown sugar, no white sugar.

Yumola!

 I decided since I don’t want to gain 20 lbs staying at home, that I’d freeze 1/2 of them!

Perfect for wine, friends, friends and wine or grandkids!

They are perfect after they cool off – crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside!

You’ll need:

2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour                          2 cups packed light brown sugar

1 heaping teaspoon baking soda                    2 large eggs

½ teas sea salt                                                 1 ½ teas pure vanilla extract

1 stick unsalted butter room temp                  1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven – 350 degrees.  Line cookie sheet w/parchment paper.  Medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt – set aside.  With a stand mixer use paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on med. high until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, beat well. Add vanilla, beat well. Turn mixer off, add flour (I did ½ at a time) mix on med until blended, then turn on high for a few seconds to pull dough together.  Add chips, beat on high 5 seconds.  Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet, don’t flatten. Cook til slightly light brown about 10-11 min (I did 12). Cool on pan 1 minute then transfer cookie cooling rack to cool completely. ENJOY

I have to say, sometimes I just laugh at myself.  What girl doesn’t need a baby chain saw?!!! LOL

I didn’t realize I had to put it together, but it was pretty simple.  I purchased this through Home Depot online at the end of summer and haven’t had a chance to use it yet. I also didn’t realize I’d have to purchase bar/chain oil before I could use it, lol. They had the pole saw on one of their deals of the day – got it for less than $50! https://tinyurl.com/ta7krr6

With my property I have some beautiful old trees.  I also have some pretty dead ones.  Decided to start small, lol.

Success!

So I still have some stumps but they’re intertwined in some wire.  Also, that bigger one . . . yeah the neighbor has his fence section wire to it – LOL.
