Here’s where you can count on me (and on occasion, my daughter and granddaughters) for a quick pick-me-up post from one of my 12 categories, penned in honor of us girls and that letter of the alphabet we’ve all laid claim to, G. Stop by for a recipe or two every Friday, just in time for your weekend fixings. My goal is to gladden your heart and add some glisten to your life.
It’s a hometown book signing! I will be signing copies of my new book, Glamping with MaryJane, at Verde, a gardening/home decor store located in the Palouse Mall, this Saturday from 1-2 p.m. Don’t miss out, as there will be chocolate and goodies galore! There will also be live music by Garrett Clevenger. The Palouse Mall is located at 1850 W. Pullman Road.
If you can’t make it this weekend, I will also be at a signing next Wednesday, 7:30 – 8:30 pm, at BookPeople, located at 521 South Main Street, Moscow, Idaho. Get yer’ Glamping books signed in time for Christmas.
Have you checked the energy use of your lightbulbs lately? I bet you’d be surprised to find you could be saving LOADS on electricity with the right brand. (Plus, you could earn a Cleaning Up merit badge:)
I am head-over-heels for this Philips brand of lightbulb B-E-C-A-U-S-E I have tried and tried to like fluorescent bulbs but I just can’t get used to them. I have soooooooo mourned the loss of incandescent bulbs. Guess what? This one COMPLETELY lights like an incandescent. Once it’s turned on, you can’t tell the difference. Wow. When I first discovered it—talk about exorbitant. One BULB was around $100 dollars. Like any price-minded shopper, I have been keeping my nose to the ground waiting for a price-drop. Last week, it happened. And I brought three of them home.
I was channel surfing (rare) looking for some quality programming the other day when I glimpsed a lady holding a chicken (even rarer!). My curiosity was piqued, so I lingered for a second or two to discover that there is a show called Redneck Island … (funnier still) and this lady, Catherine, brought her chicken, Pearl, with her.
All proceeds (minus shipping and packing) will benefit www.firstbook.org, a non-profit that provides new books to children from low-income families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
MaryJane will post a photo of the prop and its cost here along with a few details as to its condition. The first person to call the farm and talk with Brian, 208-882-6819, becomes the new owner of a little bit of herstory. Shipping will be either USPS or UPS, our choice. No returns.
