Such is life

Just about life as we know it

Last Summer’s Yard Sale


Would you believe me when I say there were children sitting in the back seat of this Jeep? There were 2 children in the back seat. This jeep was stuffed to the max and on the driver’s passenger side there was stuff coming out the window too! I have had a lot of yard sales but never in my life have I ever seen anything like this before.

These people were serious yard sale buyers!

My husband Doug, My good friend Roy and myself had a laugh when they showed up and even a bigger laugh after they left because they purchased carnival stuffed animals and it was funny to see them stuff them in their already stuffed to the max truck.

This was the last yard sale for the summer and we had a great day at Roy’s house.

The Big Purse


My husband and I were out doing our usual shopping on a Friday evening. We stopped in at Wally World to pick up a few things. It always seems like an interesting trip every time we go to this particular store.

We did our shopping and it was time to check out. There was a woman who had just finished her check out and was standing at the end of the lane. The Wally World associate started ringing our order and bagging our items. The woman was still at the end of the lane fussing with this big purse. I was trying to figure out what was taking so long; maybe she couldn’t find her keys or maybe she was putting her money away. Who knows but I needed to grab my bags and put them in the cart. So I said, “excuse me” and she moved over just a bit. Now I am feeling annoyed about why this women is being so slow to move out of the lane. As I am thinking to myself, “She had her turn, now leave”!

We left the store and the women walked out right behind us. We put the bags in the car and then we sat in the car watching this woman. She just stood there at her car fussing again with that big purse.

She couldn’t find her keys in her overstuffed big purse. Some people are just clueless. Do you really need to carry your whole life in your purse?

Ways to Recycle and Donate


We hear it all the time…Recycle, Recycle, Recycle.

Many of us do recycle and a lot of us don’t. I always have to ask just Why?

Here are simple ways for everyone to recycle:

Newspaper; use it for washing your windows, use it for your wood stove, give it to a friend or neighbor who may not have the money to buy one for themselves and ask them to pass it on to someone else.

Donate: all of us have items we no longer need such as furniture, books, clothing etc. Donating is a great way to recycle and best of all you can take a charitable tax deduction at tax time. Don’t throw it away, Donate it.

Yard Sale: sell your stuff and make some money. Again, you are recycling!

Printer Cartridges: call your local office store and ask them if they have a recycling center for printer cartridges or find a charity who will take them for a donation.  If you decide to give don’t forget the end of the year charitable tax deduction at tax time.

Cellphones and other mobile devices: call your wireless carrier and see if they recycle cellphones. I have found that most of them will recycle and give your cellphone to charitable cause such as domestic violence charities.

Have recycling bins for plastic, glass, metal and paper/cardboard. You will have to check with your city or town to see which items are recyclable. On the bottom of plastic containers there is a triangle symbol with a number inside it. Where I live we can only recycle 1 and 2’s. All of the other numbers are trash. For instance, if you have plastic containers with lids; reuse them for taking leftovers to work for lunch or use them for paper clips, coins, etc..

We can all do our part in recycling and reducing waste in the landfills. Recycle, Reuse and Reduce Waste!

I would love to hear from everyone who reads this blog on how they recycle, reuse and reduce waste.
