We bought this 4.5 pre lit tree at Hobby Lobby. We added some extra colored lights that blink, artifical fruit and am assortment of ribbon we already had. We just really enjoy the twinkling lights when it's dark outside and the grands all like it too.
After Thanksgiving, the fall things will come off and this will then be our Christmas tree. And then it might be the Valantine tree and Easter tree before it gets stored away for next year.
We have had quite a bit of rain this fall. This early morning rainbow, that seems to end right in our daughter's home, was photographed by our son in law.
I'm so glad he got this photo and I know it pleased his family too.
I saw this hack to repair a broken compact and since I had one, I gave it a shot.
The tutorial said to use a plastic spoon and alcohol.
Makeup is messy and stains so I worked on a paper towel.
Crunch up the makeup more, with the flat end of the spoon, until the makeup is powdery.
Then stir in alcohol by drops until it goes back together.
Let it dry and then see how it turns out.
My makeup turned out fine and is very usuable once again.
I call this one a win.
We have another busy week ahead and I had mostly basic produce on hand, so I prepped it all to have a head start on the week.
Lettuce, tomatoes and onions are in the first 2 containers for taco toppings and for sandwiches.
There is a container of diced potatoes to make a copycat version of Olive Garden's potato sausage kale soup.
One dish has diced carrots, celery and potatoes for vegetable beef soup.
The big dish is a simple salad to add to any lunch or supper.
The last dish is the end of the carrots, cabbage, celery, bell peppers and onions to make a vegetable noodle stirfry we really like.
If the potatoes are covered with water, they will stay white and be good in the fridge for at least a week.
Then everything was labeled and put in the fridge until needed.
I went to my favorite thrift store twice last week in search of long pants and long sleeve shirts for the grands.
I found quite a few of both in the sizes needed.
Below is what I bought the first day and I got almost as much the next trip.
Besides play clothes, I also added some dress up clothes from their 75% off Halloween costumes.
So, it was a good week here and I hope all of you are fine too.
And here is one funny picture to give you a smile
