A first for me that's for sure..........

Came out of WalMart yesterday and there was a youngish guy sitting on the ground in the parking lot with handcuffs on..........not something I have ever seen before.

Meanwhile, two other guys casually dressed were taking everything out of his car, including a little baggie..........

I can only assume the two guys taking the things out of his car were police officers and in the baggie was something illegal............dh "escorted" me away before I could get a better look............spoil sport!!

Never seen anything like that before.

Laundry and more laundry.........

that's my job for today.

Going to strip the bed right down to the mattress and wash everything in a hot wash.  Shame I can't hang it all out as the weather is going to be good.

Enjoy your Sunday!

"The Straw That Broke The Camel's Back,"

Back when we lived in the farmhouse I took allergy pills on a regular basis as it was cutting the grass and dust from the renovations that bothered me.  When we first moved in here and it was still a construction zone around us and there was a lot of dust, I had to take allergy pills.  However last year I found I could get away without taking them.

Today the drywall was installed in the basement today.  And there is dust from one end of the house to the other.  As the day progressed the worse I felt and my poor nose feels terrible.  So I gave in and took an allergy pill and I guess I will carry on taking them until I have got the basement painted, which won't be until the beginning of June, as despite having the drywall installed, the guy isn't coming to do the taping and mudding until the end of the month {{{SIGH}}}

I look like the female version of this:

Do you get/have allergies?

Love getting boxes of goodies from Book Outlet.....

Picked up another box of goodies today and for me I got these:
I'll post each book and a link to Amazon for you.  I did miss one book as I put it aside and forgot to photograph it.

It is "Never Too Late; Take Control of Your Retirement and Your Future," by Gail Vaz-Oxlade,  she is a really good Canadian author who specializes in money issues.

The Town that Food Saved by Ben Hewitt

"Vegan on the Cheap," by Robin Robertson, not going vegan but wanted more meat free ideas

"The Gnome Project," by Jessica Peill-Meininghaus, saw this a while back in the States and decided I would like to own it at some point.

"The Final Frontiersman," by James Campbell

"Canning and Preserving," by Kim Pezza

"Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl," by Susan McCorkindale

"High Tea," by Sandra Harper, the only fiction book I ordered for me this time.

"The Hatfields and The McCoys," by Bruce Wexler, so the tv mini-series a while back and loved it.  Already looked through at the photos in the book, looks really good.

For the kids I got the following:


Book Outlet is an online and physical store for Canadians and Americans.  Great service and great prices.  I have ordered from them a few times.  This is not a sponsored post.

A very important word..........

Our Little Munchkin has learned this word and uses it very, very regularly.......WHY???

Here she is at school busy as always.  Her mum's hair was up in a bun, and she wanted hers up in a bun..........

We are on baby watch now, as one is due in 10 days and the other on June 9th (c-section).
