Crazy deal of the day

Checking all the sales and online craigslist, my husband and myself are always looking for the
crazy deal of the day. We are always keeping our eyes wide open for musical instruments. Even buying used sometimes doesn't compare to a good coupon. Last year we had already found a great guitar for my son's birthday but after checking the prices online with our coupon we ended up selling the used one and purchasing a new one with a great savings.

Unique collection

I love so much watching the pickers on T.V. and what they discover. Someday I should have them stop in at our house. We've been collecting  for about twenty years. The things that we have might not be highly valuable but a lot of them are very unique some one of the kind things that we picked up mostly at yard sales. We have a very diverse collection between my husband and myself.

Trumpet mouthpiece sizes

Its been fun watching our son progress over the years with the xylophone that they call the bells these days. Why would you call a xylophone, bells who knows. The only reason to take his xylophone lessons for him is to learn how to read music. He started to play the piano now. At school during band they were helping trumpet players to figure out different trumpet mouthpiece sizes another thing I didn't realize that they were different sizes for different people.

Recycled burnable paper

Every day you go to the mailbox and everyday you have so much junk mail that by the end of the week if you roll it up just right and have a wood stove you can heat your house for a day during the winter in New York. So now, were running all the junk mail through the shredder and compress it in a bucket half full of water we flip the water over and let your shredded paper dry and have basically a block of burnable recyclable paper.

When we built the new office addition I made sure I had enough closet space to store all my materials for the on-going days of billing paper work. Good thin my husband's a carpenter and I thank him much for the custom desk design. The one thing that my husband didn't do was the electrical and wouldn't you know it for some reason the electrician put in six canister lights instead of eight that was stated on the sheet. I didn't even noticed because I'm so busy until the ceiling was done. But with the help of littlite I will be all set at my working desk.

Regional market

We thought it would be a nice day to take a drive to the Regional market. We got there at 9:30 a.m. and the place was packed.  As we found one parking place and waited five minutes for the driver to back out  another car zoomed in  literally cutting us off. It was tough to control my husband from going after this man. Anyhow after that we found a place waiting for about another twenty minutes. Spend an hour looking at all the different beautiful hanging baskets we ended up picking out two hanging baskets and one small flowering tree for our garden in the front. It looked beautiful.

M F's electric cello

I never thought I would see the day when I could afford a M F's electric cello. The one that I learn to play I think came from my grandmother. I know my dad used to tell me stories of my grandmother being mad at my grandfather so she would go to the spare bedroom and play it loud even if it was the middle of the night. But after she came out of the room she had a big smile on her face. I guess it was her way of taking out her anxieties.
