Friday Fragments is hosted by Unknown Mama for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:
Hot WaterMy husband's basement shower finally got fixed--he now has hot water! Poor guy was showering in cold for years.
Hair ChalkThis is new to me, never heard of it until I watched Mama Kat's video showing how to apply it. It looks goofy to me, but easy enough to use if you want streaks of color in you hair, which I do not. I already have enough streaks of gray!
It is worth signing up for restaurant coupons online--last Saturday we got a free buffet breakfast when we paid for one at Hometown Buffet! We used to go there every week but switched to Denney's and Perkins to save some money.
From our church sports camp, I was told I could keep the t-shirts I wore without having to pay for them! I also got three juggling balls since there were some left from the giveaway at the picnic.
I'm ready for next year!
It's always tough going back to work after being off for a week, but I did it. The highlight of my work week was getting a free ice cream cone on Tuesday at the square--Ruggles Moose Tracks! Some company was donating to the Salvation Army for every scoop of ice cream Ruggles gave out. Guess they do it all over because one of the Salvation Army workers said this was the first time they ran out of ice cream--yup, Clevelanders are drawn to free food!
We got a box of free squiggly light bulbs this week along with two night lights and a power strip from First Energy! I haven't really found a use for the power strip yet, but used the night lights right away.
JugglingI'm working at learning to juggle (videotaping my progress). After our Sports Camp picnic, two guys put on a juggling performance--they made it look so easy but it's not, let me tell you. After practicing with just one ball for a month, I'm finally getting some consistency on my toss and catch. (I only practice now and then though and only for a very short amount of time--Spunky Doodle likes watching the ball though.)
