My friend, Molly, from Shallow Reflections has taken up a new hobby!! It sounds so enticing, I just might try it too!!
“Learning a new skill: We researched ‘hotel toilet paper-folding’ and realized there are many variations besides the simple ‘V’ shape. Did you know there is an art called ‘toilet paper origami’ AKA ‘toilegami?’ By reviewing photos and YouTube videos we were able to learn a new skill while simultaneously creating the illusion of a spotless hotel bathroom.”
How exciting is that?????
I’m gonna check into this!!
Go check out this post:
“‘Toilegami’ actually is the origami-style folding of toilet paper. Toilet paper origami is practiced in many hotels worldwide. You can also amuse and greet your guests with this amazing origami style. This post offers enough online resources to start making basic toilet origami folds. Learn some basic and interesting facts about toilegami and start folding toilet paper to have fun.”

This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015. Wearing O’ the Green.
So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more. Here’s what I learned.
“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”
“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”
But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??
Well, according to this website, no. It was all just legends.
“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”
Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point. I do think it’s a great illustration!
Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff. You already saw my mantel.
Now, here’s my porch door, outside.
Porch door inside.
Front door, outside. Front door, inside.
And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side. And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??” Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!! (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)
Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.
I want these tights!! Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms….. And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!! LOL
Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.
Boy, I hope I get outta the Scullery soon! I’m running outta alliterations! Nooo!!!! I can’t believe it! Don’t test me!
The series so far.
Alright, now we’re in the midst of Seven Seconds Scullery Scaffolding. What in the world does scaffolding have to do with the Scullery?? Well, here’s my take on it. Google defines it as “a temporary structure on the outside of a building, made usually of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workers while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.” So, I’m taking the cleaning part, and applying it to the fridge. Got it? No, not that it matters to you.
So, the inside of the fridge is a fright!!
This is the top shelf. Can you see those open cans?? Look behind the pie!
Yeah, had to trash those!
And later, I found out, thanks to PP’s discriminating taste buds, that the milk was rotten too. Sorry, baby! Omie didn’t mean to!
(If you squint, can’t you see how the wire shelves look like scaffolding??)
Second shelf, the 2 dozen eggs that I bought for DD2’s birthday breakfast. On Feb 23. At least it was 2017!! And at least 1 of the yogurt boxes was completely empty. Huh. And more open cans. Can you say yuck!! I thought ya could!
The 3rd shelf. Green eggs, (I’m sure by now) and ham. (At least I think that’s ham, all bundled up under there. Probably it’s green by now too.) And that yogurt is at least 7 months old. Another toss without opening.
Yay! At least 2 cleared, if not clean, surfaces! Oopsie! That cantaloupe is way past it’s prime. Unless old as the hills is prime time now. Poor PP, never got her ‘loupe.
Why do I have 2 lemons, for goodness’ sake?? I don’t even remember buying 1! And I sure don’t remember using it! But, it was amusing when PP opened it, and tried to drink it! Bless her little heart!! Oh, since I don’t remember which one it was, guess I better ditch both then. Probably for the best! And sadly, that Fanta is not peach. It’s mango. What a nasty trick to pull!
I didn’t even bother recycling those cans. They just all went to the trash. I do recycle, but I have my limit!
The aforementioned empty box. Recycled, of course.
The mac n cheese didn’t look so, so bad, in the first pic, so I had to dump it out some. Now you can see the true depth of the nastiness!
You can see the nastiness of this moldy mac n cheese, even with your eyes closed!
Yeah, the red stuff is cranberry sauce, from Thanksgiving. (I’m thinking about just chunking those 3, without even opening them.) Wise move, I’m sure!
So, that took the whole 15 min. Pulling it all out, and dumping it. I’m still dithering about the 3 plastic containers.
But, since a sweet lady at my church just gave me new ones last Sunday, I think I can probably just let them go….
So far 3 hrs 17 min Scullery Time, plus today’s 15, equals: 3 hrs 32 min
House Time was 5 hrs 28 min. Adding today’s 15 , Total House Time: 5 hrs 43 min
Wow, this scaffolding sure needs more support!
YAY!! I think I’ve solved my no internet problem!
Bright House became Spectrum, and raised their rate $20. Well, that left me out in the cold, since I’m paying off my credit cards.
THEN! I saw a Frontier truck in the neighbor’s driveway, and inspiration struck! It was like lightening!
I got all excited! So, I called them up, found out it was only $46 a month, only $6 more, instead of $20!!! A big woo hoo there!!
So, I asked XH, to pay over the phone, and gave him the $46. I was ecstatic!! Home internet in T-7 days and counting!!
That was on Tuesday.
Then on Monday, I get a letter in the mail. From Frontier.
Not looking good here.
It was worse than not good- it was horrible news! They said my credit wasn’t good enough to have service without a deposit, so they couldn’t serve me. What in the world was the $46, that I had already paid, which the guy TOLD me was a deposit???
I’m mad now.
(Can ya tell???)
So, I called and finally got a real live person. No, I didn’t unleash on her. I just asked for an explanation, of the contradictory info.
Her answer was, “Not enough signal strength” in my area. Uh, huh. And why then was I signed up for service, and charged on XH’s credit card???
She apologized several times. But all that hot air didn’t get me internet.
So, now here I sit here at SF’s, stewing in my own juices. (Trust me, it’s not a pretty picture.)
Frontier is not so friendly now.
(Back to the drawing board. The soaking-wet-from-all-my-tears, drawing board.)
