Purge mode + Pyrex for Sale

I don't know I I manage it but I tend to accumulate stuff.  Well this ends in 2013!

In the words of THM "I don't need anymore toys".

Yes he said that.  Makes me so proud.

In efforts to keep my sanity I'm gonna do a full purge all 2013. Each month I will set a goal and keep to that goal.

January is full purge month.  Look at everything in my life and see what I love, like and hate.

This means yes I will selling some Pyrex off.  I will be trying on my fat pants and throwing them out.  I will be trying to finish some UFO (unfinished objects).  I'm gonna try not to go into the thrift stores when I donate. Or just window shop.

Here is some Pyrex I I will be selling.  Feel free to email me if you want it.  (no chips or cracks in any, but some scratches, flea bites and marks, remember these are used and vintage.)

Keep an eye out. Each will have its own blog post in the furture with pictures!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from my new computer!

Thank you to THH for getting me a nice new to me apple.  Our old one really was about ready to die.It is so old. I am a very happy camper.

Speaking of THH. I am the luckiest person to have a very wonderful mother in law. She is so sweet.

For christmas she got me Pyrex. Man does she know the way to make her daughter in law and therefore make her son happy!

She got me Sandalwood 444 and 441. I don't have any in this pattern and hope to complete the set. It is really pretty in person. I had never seen it in person. The simplicity of it is nice.

She also got me a Terra 403. I love 403 sizes. It is perfect for a small batch of cupcakes. I like terra too. The matte black contrasts so great with the brown stripes.

The only other pyrex I got is from my brother's girlfriend's mother. While down at her house on Christmas eve I spotted in her cubbard (cause I am weird and look in peoples cub bards, lock your bathroom! LOL) A Pyrex Flameware Double Boiler. I have wanted one of these ever since I saw them. I just love it. And yes I often find myself using a bowl and pot for a double boiler. Sucks since I am clumsy and tend to get chocolate everywhere. Anyways I said something to her and it came home with it. She told me she had been debating weather or not to give it to me. I owe her big time.

A little micro secret.

Can I tell you a secret?

Yes I can but I don't think you will keep it to yourself.

I don't own a microwave.

I know weird huh?

We did at one time. It got gross and the coating inside started to chip so I freecycled that sucker and we have been microwave free for over 2 years.

Food tastes so much better reheated in the oven. I no longer wax my eyebrows. (Grew them out and maintenance tweeze) An I use my drier when I want to heat up my rice packs.

I'm a rebel from the convince housewives take for granted.

And no I don't own a toaster oven rather and have been debating getting rid of the plain ole toaster too.

Kiss my ass nasty microwaves of the world! And nasty BPA leakage.

WW: Don Juan

Wordless Wednesday
(not really all that wordless) 
 

We have a dog. Don Juan De Marco
Worlds Greatest Lover
 
 
Yes we named him after the Worlds Greatest Lover. 
He is a chihuahua. We got him summer of 2004 in Orlando Florida at the county pound. Not the loving kind shelter.  the "kill" type shelter. I felt bad for him.  It took us quite some time to find a dog. I had just moved out of my parents house, across the country (from MI to FL) and I needed a dog. At least I thought so. THH did not think so but he loves me and what I say goes. (most of the time)

Okay not of the dog, but THM loves his dog and loved the dog food. 2009
