I know so many people are trying to go GREEN these days. I have found a FREE site that will help you do just that.

Ideal Bite has a lot of really great tips that you can use. One thing that most homes don't have any more is fire places. Older homes like mine that used to be heated with a fire place are really great. All year long I never throw out any paper or cardboard. I save it all up. Then in the winter when I am having to heat the house I light a fire. My fire place will raise the temperature of the downstairs by 10 degrees. I only keep the furnace set at 55 degrees and then I let the fireplace do the rest. This reduces the heating bill of this house by about $100 a month. All that paper and cardboard don't go into the landfill and I get what I refer to as FREE heat. So check out Ideal Bite and see what you can do to help save the planet.

loving you

I have to say Midnight has herself a best friend now. Or at least someone who puts up with her. But either way Midnight loves Piglet. Where ever Piglet goes Midnight has to follow. So I did a layout showing just how much my little heathen loves her new big sister. Now how Midnight is sleeping with her head rested on Piglet. I liked this layout so much I turned it into a quick page and decided I would share it with you all. The kit used was Old English Rose by Acorn Designs. this will be available at Digi by Designs soon.



I've been tags by http://melissas-spot-7.blogspot.com and http://rosemadedesigns.blogspot.com/

How this works
These are the rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


1. I do not have cable or satellite service. I have Net Flix and can have 4 DVD's at a time out. So I don't have to be ripped off by Comcast Cable.

2. I have 4 fur babies. 3 cats and 1 heathen of a kitten. Because of the heathen I have to kitty proof my house to keep her from killing herself. (look at yesterdays post)

3. I am very happily DIVORCED. The only way I want a man now is one I can send home before morning.

4. I am a penny pincher and will do my best to get everything for free or for very little cost. My Christmas shopping is done all but my 2 grandsons and so far I've spent a grand total of $5.00

5. I live in a house that is over 200 years old. It is owned by my daughter and was owned by my mother before that. It was the second house ever built in this area. The first house is across the street from me.

6. I have really bad nerves and even I don't like me if I don't have my medicine. Even with it if I am under to much stress I can still have problems. But 95% of the time I'm fine.

7. I have 5 grand kids. All by one daughter with ages ranging from 3 to 11. They can come to my house as long as they stay outside. I call them the wrecking crew.
