Buzz & Handbag Bargain

I am the Imelda of purses.  I just love handbags.  When ever I get a new one, I leave stuff in the current one, so I can’t get rid of it when I start using my new one.  I’m thinking about going through my tons of handbags and seeing if I can collect enough hidden money to take us out for a nice dinner…………but then, I could donate the bag, and that would make me sad.  Is the expression “An empty purse is the sign of a sick mind”???

Bradsdeals.com has been having some great deals.  Speaking of purses, I’ve never owned a Vera Bradley, but I like the color (discontinued), and the price of this one ($24.50).  Trying to talk myself down.

Buzz & Perfume Bargain

I’ve worn Shalimar since I was a teen.  Actually, it was my ex’s favorite, and I stuck with it after I dumped him.  Lately I’ve been trying out some more up to date fragrances, and I did buy Burberry, but it’s not exactly what I want.  I think I want something vanilla/peachy/amber-esque.  Whatever it is, I’m still looking.  Suggestions?
Anyway, I thought this was a good value, and a way to try a lot of fragrances. (from Bradsdeals.com)

I know I haven’t written for a while.  Nothing too exciting to write about.  Don’t want you to forget me though.

I have only been able to take 7 minute hot showers since I moved here.  Washed my tush length hair in shifts.  Finally decided to break down and get a new hot wataer heater.  Simple huh?  I was gong to havae the development put one in for me.  I had a thirty gal (tiny) and wanted a a50.  They ordered it, but it was too tall for the space.  Then they wanted me to take a 38 because a 40 required pipe work and they charge $50 an hour.  I told them to call me in the afternoon and I’d let them know after I talked to Harry.  They never called back.  I googled “plumber+zip code” and got 4 plumbers.  I okayed for them to call me.  Only 2 did.  One said he’d call back wioth a quote since his partnere worked in this development before.  Second called and said he’d be here at 2pm to measure.  First called and wanted twice as much as developmenty asked.  Second didn’t call till 3pm to tell me he could make it but would be here in the morning with a 40 gal tank to install.  My daughter said that’s like showing up for a date naked.  Anyway, he and his coworker showed up and put it in for less than my development wanted, before labor.  Happy me.  Anyway, started a cold water wash and saw steam coming out of washer.  They switched the pipes.  They’ll be back today, I hope.


 I have an Oreck air purifier, and it’s good enough that my bil, who is hyper sensitive to cats, can be here for several hours without a bad reaction.

I saw sun yesterday afternoon for about a half hour.  Hate all this gloominess.  Makes me want to just curl up and sleep.  Does the weather effect you like that, or is it just me?

I keep having nightmares about bad things happening to Ray-Ray, though in last night’s, he was a German Shepherd.  They say that if you dream someone dies it means they’re going to have a long life.  I sure hope so.  BTW my Rags was a German Shepherd who died mysteriously when she was 14.  All very strange and depressing.


A real good one from Giveawayoftheday.com today.  Zoner Photo Studio 14 Pro.  If you’re not sure, read the reviews from people who actually know, (unlike myself), a lot about software.



I’m not sure how I got on Jif’s mailing list, but I got this recipe from them,.  I roast my own peppers once a week (so yummy on sandwiches).  I think I’ll try this.

Creamy Peanut Butter and Roasted Red Pepper Macaroni
  • No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 2 (12 oz.) cans Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 cups shredded aged white cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, divided
  • 1/3 cup jarred roasted red peppers, drained and diced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 4 cups cooked elbow macaroni (2 cups dry)


  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
    1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Coat 1-1/2 quart oval casserole dish with no-stick cooking spray. Bring evaporated milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add peanut butter, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Whisk until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Stir in red pepper and chives.
    2. COMBINE cheese sauce and cooked macaroni, stirring to coat. Place in prepared dish. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oil and remaining 1/4 teaspoon paprika in small bowl with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over top of macaroni mixture.
    3. BAKE 20 to 22 minutes or until bubbly and light golden brown. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.


Personally, I love my My Cafe from Bunn, and use Melitta pods with it, as they are strong enough for a full mug, but, if you’re a K-Cup person, this is a great deal from MyPoints.com on a limited edition Keurig.
