I can still hardly believe it myself!

 

slob, humor, wow emoji

Wow!!  And bewildered!

(How is this a Wow emoji?????)

slob, humor, poop is NOT wow

Purple poop is NOT wow!   It’s disgusting!    And probably indicates a severe gastrointestinal problem!

Second Song

Here is my second ever post.

Second Day.

I had even learned how to upload my own pix!!       Wooo hoo!       I was on a roll!!

I didn’t know my BBFFJ, yet tho, so no alliteration!       😉

But the purple has been there from the beginning.

When I decided to start a blog, there was no question about the color scheme!

It’s raining purple!

Blogging Blogiversary

slob, humor, 3rd blogiversary

My 3rd!!

I can’t believe it!!         It’s been 3 years!!       My 3rd blogiversary was 8-19, last Saturday!         It’s almost unbelievable to me, that y’all love to read, and comment on my posts, and I have almost 1,000 followers!!         In case I don’t say it enough, y’all purple peeps are my very favoritist peeps in the whole, wide world!!       Thank you!!

slob, humor, purple peeps

Y’all are my purple peeps!        I love ya!!     And I promise not to eat you up!

I started out, in such a sad shape.       Hardly able to get up off my duff, and sweep a little bit.         Now here I am, 3 short years later, selling cleaning products, and keeping our house clean!       Okay, clean-ish!        You can actually walk in on any given day, and see the floor, the kitchen table, (at least part of it), and use the restroom, without me having any panic attacks, and you running out screaming about the ecoli cloud enveloping you!

AND!     Let’s not forget, picking up a 28 pound baby, on a regular basis!           I’m Purple Slob, hear me roar!        (Thanks to Helen Reddy.)

I hope we have many more happy years together!!

Have I said it enough times now??

Facebook Fail??

Last Sat., I attempted something brand new!        A FB Live!!      (Yes, yes, I attempted to post a video last year, but FB Live is a whole ‘nother animal!!)

Oh my goodness!!       It worked to post here!!       I can’t believe this!!        So excited!    😀            And I did it all by myself!!          See, an old, gray mare can be what she used to be!         {I didn’t want to say an old dog can learn new tricks, cuz I ain’t no dog!!}

{I wonder why I can’t hear it??      Any way, I hope you were stocked up on dramamine!}

Since this was a brave new world for me, as you might expect, I learned a L.O.T. of lessons!

  1. If the girls are not picked up on time- Abort the mission!!       I repeat- Abort the mission!!          As Sweet sis-in-love put it so gently, “It was a little hard to hear over the baby’s noise.”      Yes, poor PPJr was singing the song of her people, loudly!!        My party goers will appreciate, and understand, if I need to re-schedule.       Trust!    {It came out in many different snippets, instead of 1 long video.}
  2. I am a lousy cameraman.woman!!       In my defense, it’s extremely difficult to juggle a camera, and a whining toddler, who is clinging to me for dear life!!     And that’s not even mentioning the pre-schooler who wants to help.with.every.single.thing.        Whether she is actually capable or not.        With the restrictions of not filming their faces, yeah, a good time was had by all…..  ahem
  3. Make sure all products, and demos are set up, ahead of time!!        No one wants to get sea sick from the wildly swinging camera views, as I go look for stuff!!     See #2 above.
  4. Try to not roll my eyes every 2 seconds.      I hated seeing it myself!!       I can only imagine how irritated it made my attendees!      On a good note, I think I was giving lots of good eye contact, in between rolls!
  5. An hour would have been long enough!!     I scheduled 2, but there was just no way!!
  6. Make sure there is proper lighting.       Watching a blank screen, while I try to figure out how to end the blackout, was probably not in their top 3 fave moments of the day.
  7. Learn how to actually do a FB Live, sooner than 24 hours before the scheduled event.        Maybe even practice once or twice beforehand.
  8. Do not nap until 1 minute after the start time!       Very important key step!!
  9. Hire a speech coach next time.
  10. Write a script, instead of trying to wing it, on products you only learned about 3 weeks ago.
  11. Actually remember to purchase the raffle tickets, when you promised to give away prizes, and give a certain number of tickets for different things.       Hand writing the names, then cutting them up, was rather tedious.
  12. Have a bowl handy to put the tickets in!      Using a box with open bottom, was not the best choice.     (It was flapped shut, just not taped.    So some of the slips periodically escaped.       Everyone patiently waited while I retrieved them, thankfully.         Why wouldn’t they??        They wanted to know if they won something free!!

A Norwex post.          (This is my business link.        I make a commission on any sales.)

Norwex is the best!

Past Purdy

Look at this:

slob, humor, ugly past purdy spot

Past Purdy spot

Pitiful.   Just how long ago was it, that I posted about my spot ‘o purdy??      

slob, humor, purple jar

Aha! That’s it!! Perfect!

I know it can’t have been that long ago.        Oh no,  <groan> now I’m going to have to do research.      <shudder>    A word that is so close a cousin to math, that it gives me the heebie jeebies too.

Groan, it was only June 27.      Yes, this year.        Amazing how fast clutter accumulates!

So, once I recognized the problem, (That’s the first step, right Gary??), I determined to restore the spot’s former glory.

  • Put garbage bag in the can.    Naturally after taking out the full one.      I even went all out, and took the kitchen trash too- all the way outside to the bin!!
  •      Replaced the filter in my Brita, put the rest of the box in the pantry.        (Where hopefully I will remember to look for it, next time I need it!)
  •       Filed the blue, and purple polka dotted calendar, along with the bills, and the check!        (How in the world did I end up buying an extra $69 money order for last month’s rent??       Well, you know how me and math don’t get along!!)
  •        Put the glitter glue away in the craft cabinet.    I actually have a place for it now!!         Yoo hoo!!!
  •        The little pink box in the back is baggies, so kitchen cabinet.     They even have a designated spot, too!      I’m on a roll!!
  •        Unpacked the cardboard package, and put stuff away in bathroom.
  •        Placed stapler in desk cubby.
  •        Stashed the 4 magic towels.        Just don’t ask me where…..
  •        Put pink box of new earrings, in donate spot.      And they’re already gone!!
  •        Trashed the $1 microfiber towel, since I’m selling Norwex now.       (And then what happens just yesterday??        Barb, from De-cluttering the Stuff, challenged me to do a side by side comparison between a cheap microfiber cloth cleaning job, and a Norwex one!       Herp derp!        NEVER throw anything away!!      No, wait!      Wrong lesson!       Do get rid of anything not useful, or beautiful.       And it only costs a dollar to replace.      And it’s only 1 item I’ve regretted getting rid of, out of about 1 million[??].     So, I think I’m on the good side, there!)

And then, Ta-Da!!

Here we are, back to Purdy!!

Yes, it’s the exact same picture.  But it looks exactly the same, so why waste my time taking an identical pic??

 

Another 8 house post, brought to you by the letter P, and the number eleventy.

 

Book Blogger

A new friend: My Favorite Recipes, has nominated me for a new award.       Yipee!!

books-and-coffee

                   Book Blogger Test

Thanks, Favorite!!

Here are the requisite

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Answer the questions asked on this post.
  3. Nominate at least five people to do it also.
  4. Let your nominees know you nominated them.

 

This is something new, and I’m happy to participate!!      You know I love books!!

     Book Memes      Library       Loser          Paperbacks       Bibles

Convinced yet that I love books??

Okay now, on to the questions, please.           Coming right up!

  1.  WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE BOOK PET PEEVES?    (The emphasis was theirs, not mine.      Since they were shouting, I don’t think it needs bold too.)

Um, let’s see….. 1. When the ending pages are torn out!!!!      That makes me cry in anger, and frustration!        2. If the book is poorly edited.     Once, the heroine’s name changed halfway thru.      This really happened!       I got all steamed up, ready to write a stern letter to the editor, then…… I read a different book, and my procrastination kicked in, and I never did it.    3. When the writer is boring.    I still try to hang in there, but 3 times in my life, I’ve given up, and quit reading a book.      It pains me, cuz I know it’s not the book’s fault!      But, I do have standards, ya know!!

2. Describe your perfect reading spot.

Pretty much anywhere there’s a seat, light, me and a book!!    Actually, I don’t even require a seat!     I read while walking down the halls, at school!            I’ve even read in the tub!!

3. Tell us Three book confessions.

I think saying I have put down 3 books, without finishing, probably counts as the first one!     I’m ashamed of myself, that I couldn’t power thru!       2. I proofread, as I go.     I hate it when books have too many mistakes.       Fire your editor already!!       3. I binge read, when I find a new author I like.     I will hunt down their next books, like they are food, and I’m starving!

4. When was the last time you cried during a book?

When did I finish reading the last book??    2 days ago?     Of course I cry when something sad happens!       Those people are real!!      DD1 does too.      When either of us are crying, and we ask, “What’s wrong?”  All the other has to do, is say “Reading, or book.”        And we understand.

5. How many books are on your bedside table?

Here: I’ll show you.

Answer: 10.    2 Bibles, 2 Christian romances, a Strong Willed Child workbook, and 5 kids’ books.

6. What’s your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?

Food, pretty much!     Brownies top the list, naturally.       And peach Fanta, if I have some.

7. Name Three books you would recommend to Everyone.

Bible- #1, hands down.        Anne of Green Gables.       {This is so hard!!}        5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

8.  Show us a picture of your favorite bookcase , or a bookshelf.

Well, since I moved, and got rid of all my bookcases, apparently my nightstand is it!

slob, humor, books on nightstand

My nightstand is now my new bookshelf.

9. Describe how much books mean to you in just three words.

Oh, wow, another toughie.       Let’s see if I can do this.

Giving me life.       (The Bible literally gives me life, by bringing me to Jesus Christ.     Other books give life to my mind.)

Now another rough part: Nominating just 5 people!!
