Buzz, Freebies, and TV

 Stuill looking for every condo in my price range (or I can turn into my price range).

Any new shows you’re liking?  I just watched my tape (yes, I still use vcr’s) of Criminal minds and The Defenders.  I assumed I’d hate the Defenders, but it turns out that I like it a lot.  Hawaii 5-0 isn’t as bad as I thought it would be either.  Chase is very copycat, but I’ve watched it twice.   I’m just an old tv  addict.


You don’t need a membership number to get this.

 Hubby is getting lots of overtime, and that’s a good thing.  Missed my alone time all summer, but enough already.  Good thing Bobby (Gray) is conversational.    Have I mentioned that Ray is eating a lot more.  Still skinny, but I’m not as worried about him  wasting away.  He does like freshly cooked chicken now, but won’t eat leftovers.  Just like Hubby.


I’m not sure what part of you you use this on (jar will probably tell), but, you get a 2 week supply for free.

Spent the morning looking for other condos to bid on.  Nothing to speak of.   My adoreable but flighty real estate agent never put in bids, or contacted me for amounts, on ones I wanted to bid on.  Noiw my two favorites are sold.  Grrrr!  Sorry to get this out so late.  Was totally distracted.  


Have you all found Beyond The Rack.  They have all kinds of designer items (and some not so designery), for up to 70% off.  I’ve been busy looking at their scarves.  I think they give you a credit for signing up too, and they don’t send you email unless you leave the box checked that you want it.  I forgot I was a member, and they told me I was when I tried to sign up again.  I’ve been looking at a scarf and a perfume.

Pretty boring weekend.  Just did food shopping, and went to a dollar ($1.29) store to get a pilllow protector for the pillow I use on my car seat.  Got a good buy on reduced hot sausge at Sam’s, and two items mismarked (BIG Sign) at Stop & Shop.  After me, the sign came down, actually 2 signs.   I got a feeling of satisfation, and two of my daughter’s Chanukah presents.  Can’t say what because she occasionally reads this.  Still haven’t heard from real estate agent.  Will call today.


I was watching Foodnetwork.com Sataurday, 5 Ingredient Fix, and they had a dessert bar episode.  Got my attention.


Shoes.com is having a sale on Bass shoes with an additional 20% off with code SHOEDEAL.  You may have noticed I have a thing for mules.  I’m liking this pair for just under $25.  http://www.shoes.com/Shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?p=EC1033579&partnerid=performics2

Men’s Warehouse is having a BOGO Free sale on men’s, already reduced, sports jackets.  I like the corderoy one.  This looks like a real good deal to  me.  Trying to get hubby & BIL to each get one.

Men’s Wearhouse: 2 Sportcoats for $70
Posted on September 24 at 03:42 PST

As part of their latest sale, when you buy one sport coat at Men’s Wearhouse you get another one for free. The Joseph & Feiss Resort Tan Sport Coat,  (nice), and Andrew Fezza Blue Stripe Seersucker Sport Coat, both originally $199, are $69.99. So you get 2 sport coats for $70! Also check out the Joseph & Feiss Tan Corduroy Sport Coat ( corderoy), originally $149.99, which is now $79.99. Even better, shipping is free. Sales tax is charged in most states (except MT, ND, WY, AL and HI).


I’m thinking this might be a good idea instead of a coffee table.  Perhaps a couple of wooden trays on top to use in case you really want coffee.  It’s from Overstock.com

Buzz, Review, and Coupons

I”ve had my real estate agent put bids on 4 or 5 condos in the same development.  I expect to hear something, even that they laughed at my low bids, or they’re considering them.  Nothing.  So frustrating.  I know she’s doing open houses this weekend.  Perhaps I should show up and nag for answers.  Perhaps not.  Maybe a phone call will do.

Did I ever review that mattress I bought?  First, Hubby, who often falls asleep on the floor while watching tv, loves it.  He’s sleeping without getting up a half dozen times, and he’s snoring less.  I am finding it just a tad too firm.  Should have trusted the reviews on Overstock.com.  Medium would probably have been firm enough.  On the other hand, when the medium gets worn out, the firm will have become a medium.  Just being practical, like buying dark jeans because they’ll become light jeans soon enough.  I’ll add my 2″ foam topper, and that should make it all better.



I think it’s time for me to get some new razors (Intuition for legs, other parts regular razors).  Good coupons in this Sunday’s paper.

I’m hitting a blank today.  Other than needing to shave, I haven’t found any bargains I love for you.  Maybe we’ll have a weekend special, or not.  In any case, hope your weekend is wonderful.

 Finally made my daughter’s soup, and it was woderful, and warming, and Autumny, despite the summer weather.  I jacked up the seasoning a bit.  Instead of 2 chicjken sausages, I used some Jimmy Dean HOT sausage meat, replaced one tbs of Italian seasoning with Cajun and a sprinkling of chili.  My father would have said “It’ll grow hair on your chest”, though that is definitely not my goal  Here’s the recipe:

Kale, White Bean, and Chicken Sausage Soup

6 cups chicken broth
2 chicken sausages
6-8 cloves of garlic, diced
1 medium onion
4 cups of kale (torn off stems and into smaller pieces)
4 medium-sized tomatoes, diced
15-19 oz. can of cannelloni beans
2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning

Sauté onion, garlic and chicken sausage until brown. Add kale and cover until wilted. Add chicken broth, beans, tomato and seasoning. Bring to a boil, then lower the temperature and let simmer for 15 minutes.


Can’t hurt to eat low cholesterol.  I try to cook that way for Hubby, who’s is way too high.  Real quick survey.

 Sheesh, I click “publish”, and it all goes away.  I think my computer needs an overhaul.

Spoke to a friend yesterday who suggested I bid on the Cambridge I like so much, and she has a handyperson who is very creative and will figure out the cabinet situation for me.  Mmmmm……    Wish I’d occasionally hear from my real estate agent.

Never made the soup, again, yesterday, but last night I diced the tomatoes to give me incentive for today.  We shall see.
