I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. They’re always fun, so here we go!
Sparkling Ice Coconut Limeade
It seems people either love coconut or hate it. I’m one of those who love it. This is my all time new favorite flavor of the Sparkling Ice drinks. It has just the right amount of both coconut and lime. It’s very refreshing on a hot, humid day!
Jacobean Sunset Knit Top
I found this shirt when it was on sale a few weeks back in a Serengeti catalog. It’s comfortable and just perfect for fall and winter! I love the vibrant colors and the 3/4 sleeves. There is also a green version that I like as well.
I saw this on Amazon and couldn’t resist. It made me laugh because there really is some truth in it!
Publix Heath Bar Cookies
These are the BEST cookies! I know a lot of people who say they don’t care for Heath Bars but who love these cookies. Our Publix seems to run out of them as soon as they put them out. One of their bakery employees told me they are so popular that they’re almost always making some in the back so to always ask if I don’t see any out. I have asked once and was rewarded with warm cookies just out of the oven! Yum!
Homemade Things Made Out of My Old Scrub Tops
I retired my veterinary license last year and I was trying to decide what to do with all my old scrub tops and pants. I was thinking about taking them to Goodwill. But then I decided someone could maybe put them to good use and make something out of them. I have a friend whose mother is an excellent seamstress and makes potholders, hot pads, casserole carriers, bag holders, bowl holders, walker bags, and now masks. So I gave them to her and she was glad to get them. Here are a few samples.
Seasonal decorative masks
I decided to embrace the mask wearing as it doesn’t look like this COVID-19 virus is going away anytime soon. I love these Halloween masks I found on ETSY. I sent a set to each of my two sons (who both have their mom’s Halloween crazy genes).
I loved these I found in a catalog. More bats and a beautiful fall foliage mask in lovely fall colors.
This next mask was also an old scrub top of mine. Well, actually, I bought it on sale and it still had the price tag on it so I never actually wore it. But it made a cute mask!
My friend’s mother is also making Thanksgiving masks too (she found the cutest turkey material) and Christmas masks. So more pictures to come soon! Can we say MASK ADDICTION?
Amazon has some really cute printed disposable masks now too. I saw this one last night. BLUEBIRDS!!!!!
Pumpkin Pie Coffee
I love all things pumpkin and this coffee was no exception.
I learned how invaluable this little gadget was when my sister was in the hospital fighting COVID last month. The hospital was planning to discharge her on oxygen but to my surprise, the oxygen company I met at her house to get it all set up, had no monitoring device they supplied with their oxygen services, nor did their company sell them. I decided I needed to purchase a pulse oximeter which is an electronic device that measures the saturation of oxygen carried in your red blood cells. It also gives a pulse reading. A nurse told me that Walgreens and Walmart were selling out of these babies fast. She recommended Amazon (where she got hers). We got my sister one and I decided to order one too. I bought mine a month ago and when I checked last night, the price had dropped $8 from when I purchased it (just my luck)!
