Another Little Win

 I won another contest this week from Nest Bedding and EnviroKlenz which I entered through Instagram.  From Nest Bedding, I won a set of Bamboo sheets in my choice of size and color and laundry detergent from EnviroKlenz brand.  The sheets are supposed to be cool so I am excited to try them.  I'll let you know more when the arrive.

Finally, another Win

 I finally won another contest last week.  It has been so long since I had a win but honestly, I cut back on my contesting this year what could I expect.  The prize from Calypso Lemonade is a pool float and other swag items.   The Grand Girls will put it to good use.  

Not much to share.  My son filled my car A/C and it is doing better.  However, the clunking in my rear passenger side is now in line to be fixed.  I took it to two repair shops yesterday and they were so full they couldn't fit me in for a couple of days.  I thought that was strange.  I'll try again next week.  

The Grand Girls start school Aug 9.  Their school district starts earlier and ends earlier than most.  I remember school starting after Labor Day but we didn't have air conditioning in schools back then.  Just those great big fans.  Bless my heart, don't know how I made it. 

Buddy and I are surviving the heat with the thermostat set as high as possible.  You can see in this pic that he has forsaken his (never to be seen without) blanket because the room is so warm.  

I confess to a guilty pleasure this week.  My daughter stopped at Shipley's Donuts and brought me a chocolate-filled donut.  I am still pumping insulin to get my numbers down.  My bad but I can't even tell you the last time I ate something so decadent.  

My flowers are doing well.  The Mandala leaves are starting to burn but they are still throwing out vines so they were a good investment. If they make it through the winter I might concentrate on them next year.  Sorry, I should have gotten closer to take the picture. 

We have had a lot of wasps this year.  I swear there is a memo out that tells them I have water available.  Hahaha.  They don't seem to want to harm me so I am glad to provide the water.  

Well, that catches you up.
