From time to time I add things that I love.
Or my friends love.
Or my pets love.

Furry Friends First!
Loving my new Harness Lead!
Super easy to put on, and adjusts to any dog size without
making you go crazy trying to lengthen or shorten it.
I have the large size for my big girl, Lucy, who is 45 lbs.
and the smaller size for Emma – 25 lbs.
Lots of fun colors to choose from, too.
My friend came to visit and she tried the smaller one on
her crazy 11 lb. Dachshund and loved it.
I have now donated every other harness
I had to the local Humane Society.
Katy’s faithful companion, Daisy, loves her new collar!
She’s into the “Boho” look.
I’m always surprised when I get notices on Facebook
for missing dogs that don’t have tags. Even if your little
sweetheart is chipped, why not make it easier for them,
and their “rescuer” and a collar and tag on them?
They will come home so much faster with far less stress for both of you.
I have one in the living room, kitchen, my bedroom.
I gave both my grown kids and my BFF one.
My favorite app is The Shopping List. I tell Alexa what I need
and she puts it on my shopping list on my phone.
Now I never forget to get ice cream!
I enjoy syncing the Echos and playing music throughout
the house, and at bedtime, I love listening to Forest
Night sounds, or old Mystery Radio plays.
My grandkids love it when Alexa farts.
Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker
with Gluten Free Menu setting
A couple years ago, I dragged out my old breadmaker
and made a loaf, then remembered why it was in the
garage. It made terrible bread!
Unless you like dry, brick-like bread
Then I saw this breadmaker with 1,700 Five Star Reviews
and bought it. Yes, it cost a lot more than my old Panasonic,
but the bread this machine makes is incredible.
Better than a bakery.
Everyone loves my bread — and I never buy store-bought now.
I love this thing! I can start a pot of soup at 5 p.m. and before you know it,
I have a delicious soup that tastes like it cooked all day long.
Or stew, pot roast, spaghetti sauce.
I’ve even made cheesecake in it.
And now I make yogurt, too. I will never buy store-bought again.
Here’s My Favorite Recipe
To make Greek-style, you need a special strainer.
I tried coffee filters and it was a mess.
But the strainer listed below works great!
I’ve had two old Pyrex Perculators sitting on a shelf as decoration for years,
and recently I decided to fire up the smaller one–a four-cupper.
As a kid, it was my job to make my parents coffee, but I’d never actually
tasted percolated coffee. I don’t count those huge urns of coffee
at large gatherings.
To my surprise, the coffee is far superior to French Press, Drip, Pour-Over,
Keurig; even my fancy espresso machine. However, I didn’t like the clean-up
mess– coffee grinds all over the sink when I rinsed the basket.
Then I tried a coffee filter and problem solved.
There are hundreds of old Pyrex Perculators for sale online,
but you’ll get a better deal in a collectible store.
I recently discovered this delicious coffee. It comes in a two-pound bag,
which I like, too. Subtle Earth Organic Coffee is full-bodied with a deep, rich chocolaty flavor and a clean finish. Smooth milk chocolate with notes of honey,
caramel and cocoa.Organic certified by CCOF, Non GMO, 100% Arabica.
I have these hanging on shepherd’s hooks around the yard.
The light is warm and provides good light along
the path from my house to my office.
Katy lives in a drought, and so do I.
And, I hated low-flow showerheads until I found this one.
It is amazing. It gives a better blast of water than our fancy
old water-waster showerhead. Plus, this has an easy on-off
valve for lathering up or shaving with the water turned off,
which is something you have to do when you live in a drought.
RoboVac 30C. Years ago, I had a Roomba and loved it,
but they are so expensive now! This one got great ratings
on Amazon, was way less expensive, and it has a lower
profile, so it gets under the furniture. No dust bunnies! Love it!
Really has cut down on dust, too. Woo-Hoo!
I have three of them in the house and no more sinus headaches!
Wish I’d known what a difference it would make years sooner!
Beauty and Health

This is my all-time favorite mascara!
Finally – no more black smears under my eyes.
Easy to remove-no black mess…it just cleans off with
whatever facial cleanser you like.
I told my BFF to try it and she loves it!
So far – not available on Amazon.
I have loved this scent for years, and I always get compliments,
but it’s often hard to find now. It has pretty notes of
mandarin, neroli* flower, and peony.
*Neroli oil is an essential oil produced from the blossom of the
bitter orange tree. Its scent is sweet, honeyed with green and spicy facets.
