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!!

Norwex Nixes

Since I now have the Norwex ,

slob, humor, Norwex cloths
My kitchen cloths.

(2 eggplant kitchen cloths, 1 eggplant kitchen towel, 1 pink Enviro, and 1 graphite Enviro),      oh!      I almost forgot the dish scrubby cloth!

slob, humor, blue Norwex dish scrub cloth

Norwex dish scrubby cloth.

 

I need to purge, and donate the other kitchen rags cloths I have.

 

5 dish rags, and 6 dish towels.     I know I have at least 2 more dish rags somewhere….     (Yep, went to the kitchen, for a peach drink, and found another one…)

slob, humor, another microfiber cloth

I knew I had more!

{Aren’t PP’s hands, and knees so pretty!}

These are not including the 4 brand new microfiber ones I had!!

slob, humor, brand new microfiber kitchen cloths

Several- like 4!

These 6 Norwex cloths will replace the existing 15+ rags, and towels I have.

http://melindamitchell.norwex.biz/en_US/


WHAT??       How can that be??

Well, let me tell you!!

Norwex is microfiber, just like cheap ones, BUT so much better!

The University of Washington

“The term microfiber technically applies to fiber that is 1.0 denier or smaller. The
smaller the denier measurement, the finer and more effective the microfiber. Superior microfiber measures 0.13 denier.”

And Standard Fiber

tells us that “In terms of fills, in order to be considered a “microfiber” the fiber must be less than 1 denier, which is extremely fine. This gives the fill its airy weight, downy feel, and soft, silky texture. In comparison, a human hair is 20 denier, whereas Standard Fiber’s microfibers are typically 0.9 denier or less.”

Norwex is 1/200 of the width of a human hair.     That means it’s  __.1_ denier.      We are far superior to any other microfiber on the market!!

{I did that math all by myself!!    Well, after I did it the first time, it didn’t look right, so I redid it, and that time it was right!      Yes, DD1 checked my calculations!!  😉  }

So, since Norwex is such a finely textured thread, and woven so densely per inch, it picks up 99% of the bacteria, and germs on the surface!      And yes, we are Government certified to say that!!      And since it has BacLock, I can just use, rinse, wring, hang to dry, then reuse!        They only need washing once a week!!

Not only does Norwex nix the germs, it nixes all other cloths, and paper towels too!!

Can you say savings??!!

In case you can’t tell, I LOVE my Norwex!!

 

 

This is a Norwex post.          (Duh!!)

Now I need a Norwex icon, just like I need an 8 house icon!!        Help!!         Send icons!!

Rut Roh- Rotten

Rotten rotten refridge. Rut-roh!!        How did this happen??          

On first glance, very very quick first glance!         It looks like I eat wonderfully well.   After all, there’s fresh grapes, broccoli, and orange!

Apparently I’d gotten a hot tip on the upcoming sour cream shortage, and I meant to be prepared!

slob, humor, never too much sour cream  No such thing as too much sour cream!!

But, the fridge was not working right.       We kept turning up the dial, but then later, it would be back down again.          PP, are you playing tricks on us????

slob, humor, fridge in 8 house

It’s here, but that’s about all I can say for it!

And the freezer never had kept anything frozen, the whole time we’ve lived here.           It’s really embarrassing, the number of popsicles, and ice cream bars I had to throw away.          I couldn’t remember it wasn’t cold enough??           Really??  

But DD1 had her fridge, from her other house, so we were okay.      Just very annoying to have to go out to the laundry room for milk!!

(Which I thought I had a pic of, but apparently don’t.  sigh)

But, finally enough was enough, and DD1 asked PopPop, to change them out for us. Which he obligingly did.         (Thank you dolly, for saving his back!!        Not you, Dolly!) After they purged all the contents,  of course.     😦

Now DD1’s is in the kitchen, on the left, and the landlord’s is on the porch, on the right. (Wonder how long it will stay there before I remember to ask him to come get it???)

 

Ooops!          Gotta get my purple hippo magnet!            He can’t have that!

But no more rotten food!!        Hurray for fresher fridges!!

Tasty Tuna Two

Got up at seven.      Got DD1, and babies out the door, for work, and day care, at 7:30.     No, I didn’t pack their lunches, or make waffles for breakfast!!       The girls get breakfast, and lunch, and DD is on her own!

Read my Bible.      At 7:30, approximately, I ate my breakfast of a granola bar, and peach cola, at my desk.    

Then chores.       After laundry, and dishes, I sat down to sew.         Why yes, I was beginning to feel like Cinderella!          Why do you ask??

slob, humor, sewing station

My sewing station, all set up in my room!!

Yes! I was finally gonna finish Shirley’s quilt!!      (Don’t faint!)

But alas!       What did I find??

slob, humor, missing foot

A very important part is missing!

Or NOT find would be a better description!!          Any seamstress, like Stella, would quickly spy the problem!


I know, I know!       What does all this have to do with tasty tuna??       Well, I’m getting to it!  

After a quick search of the logical places the foot could be, I was discouraged.          So, I sat to grouse to myself.        And that reminded me I was hungry!

Now we’re getting to the tasty tuna two part!

I wanted to make my tasty tuna “salad”. 

Sadly, no blueberries on the grounds.        😦

But!!        Aha!        We do have frozen blackberries!            Those’ll work!!

slob, humor, frozen blackberries

Blackberries are purple!

Easy peasy, 3 ingredient tasty tuna “salad”.       Can’t get much easier than that!!

slob, humor, purple tuna salad

Purple tuna, in a purple bowl. What could be any better??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nuttin’, honey!  

slob, humor, salad all gone

All gone, gone!

Then, to finish it off, some yummy crunch.  

  Yessss!!       Home grown goodness!

I looked at my phone, it was only 10:45 am.         So what??          I had been working hard for 3 1/2 hours already!!

Now, to go look some more for that invisible foot…..

 

June Jottings

Another 8 house post.

I’ve worked in my room several hours, now.       Days even!!

But, I still haven’t written all, about all the times, I’ve worked in here.    Today, I’m gonna go back in time, and reconstruct the job, hopefully!

First, I need to go fetch some pix, to remind me of what it looked like, and what I did, exactly!!          Back in a flash!

 

slob, humor, Flash gordon

(I want him to move!!)

There, didn’t even miss me, did ya??

What I did: Uploaded my June 10th files.       Yes, file”S”.        I had 2.         Then deleted off my hard drive.          So, I’ll just mosey on thru the pix, and say what’s happenin’, (IF I can remember!)

First of all tho, know what’s 1 good thing about me??           I never do anything by halves!!             When I’m blogographing (Photographing for my blog; you’re welcome to use this word, btw) I either obsessively document every.little.thing.      OR  I forget altogether!        June 10th was an obsessive day.

These are all from Sweeter Sweatin, so no need to talk about them again.

 

Another annoying cord, that I just want gone, but Sweet Friend won’t oblige me.      {pout, pout}             It hurt when I’d accidentally step on it!

So, I just pushed it back behind the filing cabinet, I think.      [Checking]         Nope, under the bottom left black shelf.      

slob, humor, rabbit food plus meat!        Obviously I was determined to eat healthy that day!!    Behold the salad!!

I was emptying that random box, partly onto my bedside table.      The old, probably more than 5  years old, party horns left the building.       Accompanied by the linen napkin.    We aren’t linen napkin people, much as I want us to be.        Just not.         Disposed of the candles, because I haven’t needed them in the past 4 years.       And was too scared to burn them in the trailers, even if I had!

I don’t think I had previously written about any of that.

Kept all 3 pix, cuz my girls.        Threw away the hideous frame, that I’ve always hated.

Threw away the Allen wrenches.      Ikea has plenty more, right??        Put the other tools in the laundry room, the knife in the kitchen, duh!            Comb went to the bathroom, not that anybody in this house needs it!         But, never know, one of us ladies might get a wild hair, and grow some! 

slob, humor, trash

Pure trash!

This is probably where I need to talk about the one I let get away.        When I was going thru old pix, and cards, etc, I came across a little card.         It was house shaped!! And was a cute cottage, with roses, etc.        I thought, “Awww!    That’s really cute!”   Then cavalierly tossed it aside.       But I can’t remember if I tossed it the #13 file, or back into the keep box.       Later, when I was still struggling to find an icon for the 8 house, it hit me- I had had the perfect icon in my hand!!         ARGH!!           And I haven’t had time, ok, the will to live, to go back and try to find it.       Because if I DID throw it away, I’m gonna beat myself up some more!!         

But what if I DIDN’T throw it away, you ask??         Then, I’ll be thrilled, go back and add it to all the 8 house posts, and STILL beat myself up, cuz I waited sooo long!        So, either way, I’m gonna get a beating, so I’m trying to delay that as long as possible!         Do ya blame me????

Washer Washing

Doing laundry today, I noticed how dirty the washer is.     Isn’t that funny, that you have to clean the thing that cleans??

Also funny, is how I find myself noticing things that need cleaning now!           Slob recovery is a wonderful thing!!

And, knowing that I can probably clean it in a few minutes, with the Norwex, and just water, makes me want to clean, not ignore it!!          YAY!!           Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

With no further ado, I present: The Washer needing Washing.

I had already started cleaning the lid, when I stopped myself, and grabbed the camera!

slob, humor, damp Norwex cloth

My trusty, damp Norwex Enviro cloth.

Just the Norwex Enviro, some water, and a little elbow grease!

And dirty becomes clean!

[I already had water in the tub.]

YAY!!  the middle of the agitator=clean!    The lid crease= clean!     (The pink is the instruction label, the orange was the rusty/dirty. )    

slob, humor, cleaner!

And the bleach dispenser is pretty clean!      I was just gonna leave the letters dirty, but I realized that would be hypocritical of me to tout how wonderfully the Enviro cleans, and then not finish the job!!

So, I went back in.

slob, humor, clean bleach dispenser

There! Almost clean enough to eat off of~ But why would you want to??

And now the washer no longer needs washing!!
