My First "7 Quick Takes on a Friday"

Today is Clean-the-House Day. I make a list for the kids so they know what has to be done before fun commences.

If you want to occupy your 5 yr. old on Clean-the-House Day, you can make a zipline with built in harness for his toys, using nothing but a little household string.

Warning:The zipline may not work if there are curtains calling him to fulfill his destiny as Tarzan.

My wonderful, marvelous husband organized my gluten-free flours last night, after having worked all day, gone to the grocery, AND attended a scouts meeting. Every once in a while we both open the pantry just to admire the work.

Speaking of my wonderful, marvelous husband, he bought me this superpowers blender. I can make amazing concoctions with it. It's called "The Ninja". It has razor sharp blades, 2 different sized pitchers, and even a piece for kneading dough. It is a wonder to behold. 

It can make stuff like, kiwi pureƩ, an idea from Princess for her coconut pancakes this morning. I was wondering if kiwi turns brown? I bet all the fruit in the garden of Eden never turned browned.


Camo meets Christmas. A match made in heaven.


  1. My friend has a ninja and raves about it! I didn't know it came with two different sized pitchers, genius!! That may be going on my Amazon wish list now. :)

  2. This is me, trying not to laugh too hard at JI while I drool over your Ninja and beautiful pantry. What fantastic gifts from your Mister!

    1. Yea, at first I was mad, then I stopped and said, "Well, I might as well get the camera out." ;)

  3. What a lovely blog! I found you from Quick takes (I'm a sporadic contributor) and enjoyed what I read here. Thanks!

  4. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post. hair pieces buns
