Smart & Simple

Yeah, that’s the name of the dish soap I bought last week.      This whole HUGE bottle             (50 oz) for only $1!!!       What a bargain!

slob, humor, just what it says

But!!      Is it really smart??         Is it as simple as that??

Since it doesn’t lather up very well, at all, Like, At ALL, it’s very smart for the people who make, and sell it!       They’re selling a “soap” product that is probably only 11% soap, (and that’s being very generous!!), and 89% water!!        They can afford to sell it for $1, since it only has 1 cent of soap in it!

And I’m the simple one, for believing that a huge bottle of dish soap for $1, would work  well!!       

slob, humor, dish soap?

I had to use another squirt for every dish I washed!         Not a good deal.      Not even a fair deal.

I must say, I love the color, tho!!        (Thank goodness for the bottle specifying lavender!   Otherwise, I might have mistaken it for lilac!)

Sadly, purple coloring doth not a good soap make.      Even I, as purple fanatic as I am, can admit that.

slob, humor, "Dawn" fainted

Dawn fell down, and can’t get up.      She is in shock that I cheated on her.    And with such a cheap floozy, too.

Please forgive me, Dawn!       I’ve learned my lesson!      I won’t do it again!    I promise!!

 

(But I am brainstorming ways to have my purple, and real soap too!)

Pudding Pop’s Pink & Purple Party

YAY!!!   Pudding Pop’s having a party!!   A pink & purple party!   Fit for a princess!!

slob, humor, party invite

I had to take a pic of the screen again. sigh

I was so excited, to plan this party, and celebrate her birthday properly!!   Last year, her parents didn’t give her one, so I had to make up for 2 years in one!

So, being the savvy budgeteer that I am, I went straight to the Dollar Tree for all the supplies!

I had to take a pic of the screen again. sigh

{Ooooohh, this is making me mad!!  The copying captions thing.}

Pretty, and prudent!   Can’t beat $1 each!   Thank God for the Dollar Tree!

 

AND, I wanted this pinata from Save-a Lot SO bad!!!!

slob, humor, pinata

Pink & Purple Party Pinata!

But, I didn’t have $17 extra.   And after all, who needs a pinata, when you have this???

slob, humor, princess centerpiece

Centerpiece, well, pic of a centerpiece! I was too lazy to set it up just for the pic!

Of course, some might be disappointed that they can’t swing at it with a bat!

The cake would be the most important, to me anyway!!    (Wonder where I can find a GF bakery in town??)

Then, PopPop blew me away, by coming over with this!!

slob, humor, pink and purple castle

PP’s very own pink and purple “cassel”!!

As you can see, she’s already moved in!   She was ecstatic when she saw her very own “cassel”!!!!

 

My little princess was pleased with all the pink and purpleness!!!

(A birthday party IS a holiday, right??!!)

Silly Sippys

SF and I were having an argument.    A silly, little argument, really.   I’m embarrassed to tell you the topic, silly.

Okay, if ya really wanna know, we were arguing over the color of the sippy cups he just bought.

Uh, huh.   Sippy cup colors.   Nice….

Well, at least this time I wasn’t the only passenger on the crazy train!!   SF never goes on that ride with me!!

See, here’s the new sippys he bought.

slob, humor, 2 sippy cups

Looks deceptively all purple.

 

So, understandably, he thought they were all purple.   But!!   I had already opened one, and given PP a drink in it.   So, I KNEW there was a green top on it!

WE argued for about 15 min. over the phone.   {Why no, I didn’t have anything else to do!    Why do you ask??}   Finally, I took a pic, and sent to him, to prove I was right!

slob, humor, purple and green sippy

Haha! There’s green in them there lids!

 

He capitulated!    That almost never happens!!

So, please forgive me if I crow a little!!

 

Uh, Melinda??

What now??

Actually, the top isn’t green.   It’s purple.   The ring is green.

 

Oh alright, so we were both right.   How often does that happen??

slob, humor, grandmother linky

I’m trying to figure out how to make it a real button!! Have patience, please!!

Meantime, here is the linky website.

Perfect Purse

slob, humor, purse

Pretty purple purse, pretty new too!

 

This is the purse Sis gave me when the last one petered out, which was only the end of April!

And I liked it, I really did!!   The deep purple, the leather, what was not to like??

Well, the sagginess of it.   I need structure in my life!!    Especially in my purses!   When I set it down, it would just flop over on itself.

So, after me telling Sis I liked it, but complaining about the lack of stiffness, guess what that wonderful sis of mine did????

YUP!!   She got me another one!!   You’d think she’d be tired of buying me purses, and just say “Shut it, ungrateful brat!”   But, she’s too much of a sweetheart to say that. (out loud anyway!)

So, here it is!!

slob, humor, purse

I LOVE the Scripture!! And the structure!!

 

And the color!!   And the lining!   And the pockets!!

Oh the bling!!

 

Just please don’t tell her I said I feel like a knight, all armored up in chain mail when I clink, as I go!

slob, purse, purse chain

Chain mail, anyone? And not the email kind, either!

 

I really do love it, Sis!!   Promise!!

Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink

Door Decor

Which door?   What decor?

This door, and this decor:

dark blue curtain, back door, humor

UGH to the LY

It’s my back door.

This curtain is dark navy blue.   BOO!!!   You KNOW I can’t let THAT stay here in MY house!!   If something isn’t purple, I have an allergic reaction!!   Get that girl a purple curtain!   STAT!!

 

So, here’s the door, mid change.    {You know normally I’m against nudity, but….. no vital areas are exposed.}  

naked back door

So immodest!!

 

Now, finally done.    It was such an exhausting process.     Removing the old curtain, from the rod, and sliding on the new one. Time for a nap.

So pretty in purple!!

And Bonus: finally there’s light at the end of the tunnel hall!

 

 

 

 

 

Blooming Blossoms or Blossoming Blooms

I couldn’t make up my mind, which one to use, so I did both.  Ya know, like a magazine sometimes has 2 different covers??  (Yeah, I think I’m an international sensation!!)

Here it is November, and my leggy plants are still blooming!  Let’s celebrate!

Nope, not my yard. But I forgot to take a pic of MY grass, so this’ll have to do.

(It is the canal, at my park, tho.      Please ignore the ugly pipe.  If only I knew how to crop pix, by myself!!)

God grows a great garden!!

Many Measly Months?


Has it really been almost 4 months that I’ve lived in my house, and haven’t shown y’all the inside yet???  Am I crazy??? Don’t answer that.

I know y’all have been sitting there on pins and needles, just waiting!  I’m so sorry to have been the cause of so much pain!!

The dining room/ kitchen before:

Obviously, a before!

Granny’s corner cabinet, is where the ugly, green chair full of brown, and green sheers was.  Sweet friend changed out the pendant light, to the bubble light, so that the corner cabinet would fit under!  Thank you, sweet friend!

There, now everyone can relax, and sit in a comfy chair again!

Color Correction

Okay, another poll today, kiddies.

Is it annoying to see so many different text colors?

color icon purple

 Do you want me to pick one and stick with it?  This color is labeled “Red Violet”.  I dunno, it looks kinda brownish to me.  (Did I mention I “might” need glasses??)

Dog gone it, that pesky poll button has disappeared again.  Seriously, folks, does that ever happen to y’all while you’re writing a post?  I’m about ready to write my Congressman!  (Or send a sternly worded memo to WP.)  This color is labeled “Purple.”  Okay, I agree with that.

I was going to make a poll about which text color you’d prefer.  Humph  How do you insert a poll, when no such option is offered??  What did I do last time to overcome the WP hiding game????   {whacks self on forehead}  

own poll icon

Ok, so I created my own poll icon. So there, WP!
😛

Think! Think! This color is labeled “Plum.”  Really??  It looks like lavender to me.  But who am I??  Only a purple connoisseur!!

So, if you’d be so kind, tell me in the comments, if it annoys you when I change colors in the post, and which color you prefer as the standard for texts.  Thanks!!  (This one is “Magenta”.)
