Ten Things Tuesday…

Today I’m writing “Ten Things Tuesday”.  Ten random things that I feel like writing about…and they will be random,  believe me!   After you read my ten things, if you’d like to write ten things of your own, I’ve managed to add a link at the bottom of this post…link up with me, I’d love to read your list. 

Butterflies on the side of hubby's "Man House"

1.  Thanks to me, my husband is now displaying brightly colored butterflies on the side of his “man house”.  He is also displaying two dangling dragonflies, and two dangling bumble bees that spin when the wind blows…I’ve been shopping at the dollar stores…more on this hobby later. 

2.  I have the greatest husband in the world…or he would have killed me–many times– long ago… 

3.  My hair dresser and I apparently do not comb my hair the same way…It never looks quite right after I wash out the style that she gives me at her shop.  I have to wait an entire six weeks for it look nice again– when she cuts and styles it again. 

4.  It’s Murphy’s Law that if you spend the entire day cleaning and organizing the toy box…a grandchild will come over shortly after that…then you can start all over again–after they go home. 

5.  If you spend an entire week painting your porch and it’s furniture–every bird within 10 miles of your house will come and poop on it!  I’ve never seen so much bird poop in my life! 

6.  If you plant flowers in your yard…all cats automatically think you’ve made a new “bathroom area” for them.  They just looove fresh dirt!  I suppose they call themselves fertilizing the plants… 

7.  I recently purchased my first steam mop, and I love it!  I never thought I’d care for one, but after mopping  with an old-fashioned mop and bucket for about the one millionth time…I decided it was time for a change.  I highly recommend it…it’s easier on the old back, too.  Those Korean women were on to a GOOD thing… at least, I think the  Koreans invented them… 

8.  Snacks are getting smaller…but not my appetite.  Little Debbie Cakes, Moon Pies, candy bars, and bags of potato chips are getting smaller and smaller…A double decker moon pie is now the same size the regular moon pie used to be…Have you seen a Little Debbie Cake lately?  Four bites and its history!  Those snack sized candy bars…oh please..!  The bags of chips that are now selling for a dollar…used to be what…maybe fifty cents? 

9.  Why is it…now that I am a senior citizen…it takes me twice as long, to do half as much?  Well…at least I am enjoying my senior citizen discount!  Yesterday when I told the cashier that I qualified for the senior citizen’s discount, she replied “No way!”…to which I replied “Yes way!” 

10.  I love shopping at dollar stores.  I guess I’m just a “dollar store person”.  I love all those  cheap little things…that can only be found at the dollar stores…Yep, that’s me cheap…You should see my little plastic hummingbirds with spinning wings…awesome!  Haven’t been able to attract a real hummingbird yet…Maybe this one will fool them into visiting…  I have no shame. 

My little plastic hummingbird with spinning wings...

  1. I don’t know but butterflies on a man house? My husband would throw a fit. you are lucky.
    I love the dollar stores too. I am just a sucker for all of that kind of stuff. I find some really useful things too, like the batteries that were already leaking when I brought them home. They are the perfect place for stocking stuffers.
    My list is :

  2. I love dollar stores too! And those birds just like their clean/freshly painted toilets that’s all. Who doesn’t prefer a clean toilet :p As for the potato chips, not only were they cheaper before, but they came full!!! now you’re lucky to open the bag and find it half full, most of them are only about 1/3 of the way to the top. Last normal sized 250g bag of chips I bought? $4… yikes!
