Because I think it's funny...

I was just telling Devin how funny I think this part of the movie "Elf" is - especially the phone conversation the secretary is having starting at 1:06. That is my favorite part of the entire movie. Enjoy

Tuesday Tip O' the Day

Well, since it's December, and many of us are experiencing wet weather...thought you might be able to use this little tidbit:

"Here's how to waterproof your shoes and lengthen their life: Melt together a dressing of two parts of beeswax to one part of mutton fat. Apply it at night and, in the morning, wipe it well with a piece of flannel. You now have waterproof shoes, at practically no cost to you."

No cost to me. I like that idea....except that I'd have to BUY beeswax and mutton fat. Can you even buy mutton fat? (Additional bit of info - mutton is code for LAMB. They just try to "church it up" so people won't think they're eating Bo Peep's sheep.) Could I just use chapstick and butter? That's what I have on hand. Adapt and overcome, ladies! That's my motto! LOL

Have a great Tuesday.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about posting the pics of our new Christmas tree - I just want to make sure that the photo really accentuates the tree.

First Black Friday, now White Monday...

Hooray for snow days!

This is the view from the road to our house. A stupid tree branch fell and got snow all over the driveway after I had gotten it all cleared off.
This is the big pine tree that I L-O-V-E but it drips sap all over my van. Wow, I never noticed just how big that tree is!
Some downed branches in the yard (the snow is super heavy - great for snowballs and snow forts!) I haven't ventured into the back yard yet, but I know there's some back there, too.
Guess we won't be using the swing set today.
Bug, in one of her SWEET sleep ensembles, relaxing on the couch while watching one of our favorite Christmas movies....ELF!

Hope you're having a great day....even if you didn't get a snow day today! Oh, and later I might be posting some pictures of our NEW Christmas tree!
