REVIEW OF PUREX TRIPLE ACTION LAUNDRY DETERGENT !

A few weeks ago I was offered by PUREX INSIDERS the chance to review their newest product. TRIPLE ACTION PUREX MOUNTAIN BREEZE. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle was the scent. Then I read on the label that it is formulated for performance in all types of washing machines. The triple actions are bright, white, clean.
My clothes came out wonderfully clean and smelling great. I will be using this from now on. It is a great value , too.
I was given a product for this review and I have not been compensated in any other way. My opinions are all my own.

VERY EASY DAY COOKING ON CHRISTMAS !!!

We have been on a roller coaster this past week. Bobo and Sissy have been sick right through Christmas. Mommy and Daddy were sick,too. It still was a nice Christmas. We had decided this year, thank goodness. to make it as simple as possible.
One of the gifts that I, Nana got for Christmas from my sister was the cookbook called 365 Slow Cooker Recipes. I had thought for 3 days what recipe I wanted to use for Christmas. We were already having a turkey so I wanted a different kind of meat. Mommy and I decided to get a pork loin. The recipe was so easy I am going to use it all the time and by just changing the spices it is a different taste every time. We took the 2 pieces and rinsed them off. I don't know why, I just did because Mommy said to! Then we put them in the crockpot . We sprinkled garlic powder, some parsley and some rosemary. Then we put in about 1/2 cup of water. We put it on low and 4 1/2 hours later just when the turkey was done we took it out. It was delicious and was so easy. I envision next time using dill and many other different spices.
The starch was baked potatoes with different toppings. How much easier could this be? I was able to enjoy the day with Bobo and Sissy! I will even use this on any occasion where I want to get other things done while cooking a nice deal.

REAL TEA PARTY WITH CHINA AND BEAUTIFUL TABLE !




When Sissy was born I, Nana decided that we were going to have tea parties as much as we could. I bought her a China Tea Set just after she was born. When she was smaller she got a plastic one that she used to play tea party. Now that she is older the other day she came over and I took out the China Tea Set. I washed every piece (some were really small!) and dried them. I put real sugar in the sugar bowl and real cream in the pitcher. I took my glass measuring cup and boiled some water. I put a tea bag in and poured some into the tea pitcher.


We did this on a TV tray. A few days ago I found this table at a secondhand store for 3 dollars. I fell in love with it!!! It is just the right size. Auntie Lala is enjoying her tea with Sissy in this picture but rest assured every family member got their turn! The picture doesn't do the table justice. I has a wood top and metal legs. The top has sparkles all around it. I cannot begin to explain how happy I am whenever I see this.

OH NO! CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE !

Oh my gosh ! I , Nana have been running around like crazy trying to get to all of the deals I can. JC PENNEY has a $10 of $25 purchase and includes sale items!!! Target has on line coupons for $4 and $3 off some apparel items. These also include sale priced and clearance items. I cannot list what I got because some people , I won't mention who, like to read this blog. There are really huge clearances in both of these stores right now. I think I might go back tomorrow.
I cannot believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away! Poor Mommy has been ill for the past few days so she hasn't been able to get out and get some last minute shopping done. Hopefully by Wednesday she will feel better.
They are saying we might get some snow on Saturday or Sunday. Here's hoping for about 2 inches. Nana

MAKING A REINDEER ORNAMENT JUST LIKE WE DID WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE LITTLE!



Mommy is a room mother at Bobo's school, just like I (Nana) was when Mommy and her brother and sisters were little. When we were thinking about a craft to make in the classroom we thought of a reindeer made out of the round head clothespins that Mommy made in Girl Scouts. As you can see in the picture you will need 3 for each reindeer. Two are glued together facing the right way to form the 4 feet. It is a good time to cut a gold twine and put it between the 2 clothespins when you glue these for a hanger for the ornament. Then you take the other clothespin and glue it to one side of the other clothespin head to head and the rounded head pointed up to form the face and the antlers. Time for the fun decorating. We used pom poms on the back for a puffy tail. We used magic marker for the eyes instead of small beaded eyes because the kids were small. Then we made a face . When I took out my ornaments the other day and I found the one that Mommy had made. I was brought back to when she made this. It is fun and makes a lasting memory when you take the time to make ornaments with your children and your grandchildren. We made one with Bobo and Sissy, too. What a great afternoon !! Let me know if you want a picture of the finished product .

BOOK REVIEW OPAL MOON BY KIANA SIM

I started to read this book a few weeks ago and I loved it. I have always been interested in reading about Emperors with their wives and children and how they live in a harem. This book tells about what goes on behind the curtains, so to speak. It has all of the elements of a good historical romance. A young girl of 14, Opal Moon is rescued by the Emperor's Fourth son Yin-chen. He cannot help himself and cannot bear sending her away so he keeps her with him by making her dress and act as a boy. He soon comes to realize that he cannot hide the fact from himself. Everyday he finds himself more and more drawn to her. I really enjoyed this book and anyone who loves historical romances will find this a very entertaining book.
I was given this book by by The Dorrance Book Review Team. All of the opinions expressed are my own.
