Time to start making Christmas gifts. I know a whole lot of folks who will enjoy this "stemware"
So easy it's silly. First get a standard candle stick ( I got mine at Dollar Tree) take the candle stick, place the top on the bottom of your canning jar.
When sastified with the placement. take a super glue for glass (I used Loctite Glass Glue- dries clear and is dishwasher safe!), glue per directions. when it dries, you have a lovely piece of stemware for the duck dynasty folks that you know!
Well, Romeo and Buddy had a great day to party down in Burien, on Sat. October 26th. THe day started off with a B-town Dog "Park-N-Bark" at the Town Square park,
where they met up with their Canine friends and owners for a walk along 152nd, the main street in Burien, and later they got to lead the Dog Costume Parade the Discover Burien puts on each year in their "Boo In Burien" celebration. The weather held out, and they boys had a great time watching the annual Weiner Dog races and eating the dog treats given out by local businesses.
Martha Stewart. Homemaker. Media Mogul. Former model and Felon.
I totally get Miss Martha. I mean, after all the tagline of my blog is "a bit like Martha Stewart... only with more testosterone". But really Martha- picking on me and my fellow bloggers???
I was alerted to this by my friend and colleague, Lisa, of Condo Blues and the Lazy Budget Chef Fame. She feels Martha had stomped on her and others who write instructional blogs. And she is not alone. Martha did. just watch the video below:
I must say I get many great ideas from Ms. Stewart. And a few dumb ones. But to go attack a group of people who try to emulate you and be just like you is... well, criminal. Soooo... maybe The Hallmark Channel wasn't wrong after all. You have outlived your usefulness.
And maybe Lisa and I are just having hurt feelings. But you know it stings when an idol says stupid things about you, and I can tell you I learn more from blogs like Condo Blues and Lazy Budget Chef than I ever did from Martha Stewart.
And Romeo and Buddy think her French bulldogs are stuck up.
Everyone knows that this country is guarded by an elite force of dogs. Dogs who wear rocket jet packs and fly. If you didn't know that well now you do!
I was first inspired by Natalie at Doodle craft to make Romeo and Buddy's "Rocket Dogs" halloween costumes, after seeing what she came up with for her young son to wear and play with. Thought it could be made into a costume for my dogs!
First I spray painted two water bottles:
And then added felt Flames:
Then I took two of the dogs old coats and made a t-shirt transfers for them
Then I simply attaced the water bottles with some Tywraps and ty-wrap self adhesive holders that where attached to the Rockets so I could re-use the dog's coats.
The end result:
2 HOWLOWEEN COSTUME FOR MY PUPS! A few decals from nasa and such on the jet pack rockets and it will be finished!
Well I ranwalked sorta fast in the local Brat Trot. Didn't do as bad as I thought - came in 80th (out of 84 finishers) in the 1 mile race. And I had two dogs with me. Never go racing with dogs- they want to stop and smell the roses! (and then pee on them). Anyway it was all for charity (The Highline Schools Foundation) so I guess that is a Win-win.
While watching the CHEW one day, a gal was talking about how
she makes a different lunch each day for her kids. She included PB&J made
different ways, started mom and I to talking:
ME: Mom- you never made me a PB&J Sandwich when I was
Mom: Oh I must have.
ME: No, pretty sure you didn’t.
Mom: well that’s because You don’t like them.
One of the things wrong with kids today is they don't get PB & J mad on soft squishy wonder bread. Most foodies think even their kids sandwiches should be on crusty french bread or ciabatta. I even know of one mom who makes Focaccia bread for her 7 year old's lunch. It's time to stop this madness!!!
Well today I get to take whatever I want to work and
somedays it is just PB&J. And I go against my own grain on this. I am from
the school that believes PB&J is to be made on soft white bread (like
Wonder bread). Well I have loosened my stance a bit, and today love PB&J Roll
ups (Tortilla’s with Peanut Butter and Jelly) Or Peanut Butter and Nutella.
It is a wonderful thing, those PB&J Rollups, But Grilled Cheese should never be
served on crusty hard bread, and should always be made with American Cheese. On
that there can never be any diversion.
