My AC in my house isn’t working, and now that it’s not snowing anymore in May, the heat is setting in. I can’t bear to spray on perfume right now until I’m chilled a bit. Hey, hot flashes and no AC are a terrible combination and so we get —
Some of my favorite things!
Anita posted a picture of a coil candle on Facebook, and I of course scurried off to find it. I found one even better/
Do you not just want to eat this up for lunch? I got one. Anything with bees has to come home and live at my house
Bai 5 . I’ve been swilling this stuff for months. It has some, um, “coffee fruit” in it, which is basically a better caffeine, but it doesn’t upset my stomach like coffee does and has 5 calories and no artificial sweeteners. Both of my sons created the same habit once they found some in my fridge. Drinking is a mild way of putting it. Every time they are in the house, they are in my fridge taking as much as I’ll let them have. Fave flavors are Panama Peach and Congo Pear. Yummy and refreshing for the summer
My hammock for the balcony. I love hammocks,and I love sleeping outside in the shade – part of that farm upbringing. It’s not here yet, but that doesn’t stop me from fantasizing for the 1.5 more days I have left until it does get here.
Prancing Leopard yoga pants and capris (my picture link embed skilz failed me on this one). I’ve tried them all, and these are the ones I reach for every day. They are pricy, but one of the few things that I happily pay for because my wear/cost ratio on them is so low. if you wear something 120 times a year and it lasts for 3 years or more (my last pants from them two years ago are still going strong) – yeah, exactly. These capris are cute and so, so, so comfy. The front is this really nifty style that makes it a great fit, and it has pockets and that little contrasting trim around the legs. Love, love, love them.
Chiaogoo red lace circular knitting needles. OMG, these are the best things ever outside of the Dyakcraft hard metal lace needles. For about $10 a pair, it’s a tremendous savings from the worth every penny Dyakcraft over $150, but! Sometimes $10 is better.
I was going to not even talk about these Qwest Protein Bars in the Cookie Dough flavor. They are protein meth. It’s like eating Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream, but without the other 1,000 calories. Unless you eat 5, and then it’s a problem. They aren’t allowed in my house now because I prefer them to Ben & Jerry’s.
Wendsleydale Cheese with cranberries. Last food item, I promise! I had no idea that cranberries and cheese should go together, but now that I have seen and tasted the rapture that is this taste pairing, may they ever go together.
Those are some of my favorite things the last couple of months or longer. How about you?
