    I'm pretty certain that if your olive oil doesn't solidify in the fridge, it's not actually oil. Perhaps I should test with my stuff that I'm pretty dang certain is olive oil. And yeah, I've pretty much decided that anybody who flogs 1 specific type as the holy Grail of _____ and no others can compare is likely full of crap.
  2. I'll probably get 2 of the Dietz Junior ones to play with. They'll primarily be used inside, but I'd like ones that still look nice inside. Might pick up some of the glass ones at Hobby Lobby - the Aladdin indoor ones are expensive!
  3. We lived in a borrowed RV while they were setting our house up...that then got moved down to my brother's land for them to live in while they were getting their house set up. I'm not sure Mom's quit twitching over the fact that we're both living in mobile homes yet. Housing is just too darn expensive out where we are! You could look into something like a POD or the U-Haul things that they just leave on your property while you load it and see if those would be cheaper. Or see if a friend has an empty trailer you could borrow. We bought a used shed and had it moved onto our property. You could do that, then either use it for storage or buy one you could then use as a potting shed or greenhouse or....
  4. We've just hit our first fall. Now we're going to be on the see-saw that makes my respiratory system cranky. I'm sitting here with pumpkin-spiced coffee (Dunkin Donuts brand) mixed with my regular coffee, and pumpkin spice stevia drops and cream in it. I found the gluten-free graham cracker crust that hubby requested for pumpkin pie at the 6th store (and 2nd Walmart!) that I checked, along with the gluten-free Red Lobster biscuit mix (heavenly, I tell you). Now, if only the kids had managed to finish dishes so I have a clean mixer and cookie sheets to start baking on....

    I generally can't find non-hydrogenated lard in our stores... ...but I do have a few jars that I've rendered out of various meats!
  6. Oh! and I have permission from hubby to wander home with a few oil lamps at some point. Now I have to decide if I'm going to order good ones or just pick up the ones at Hobby Lobby
  7. There's a MrsS page hidden on there. I believe you have to be invited in by a current member to even see it.
  8. We actually used our heater for the first time this year Thursday. I did wake up smelling the first burn-off (I always think I should turn it on during the day first, but always forget) of the dust. This morning I'm at home reading stuff for work. One of the kids is working concessions (couldn't even tell us what sport it was for - he's doing it for theater). Other kiddo is off with hubby to trade days in the next town over. He's already sent me pictures of lovely wooden storage boxes that I think he's picking up for me. He knows I like the pasteboard ones from the craft shops, so I think he's hoping I'll use sturdier ones a bit more.
  9. Oh, and the ants are still coming. Time to buy actual ant poison, I suppose. What can I use in the kitchen that won't highly disturb me and make me continuously clean for the next week?
  10. I think the weather changes in October just mess with everyone. Another cold front blowing in tonight. Going from a high of 92 to a high of 62. 69 on Saturday, then back up to 86 on Sunday.
  11. They were talking about it in relation to POTS and dysautonomia in general. Not sure if that involves MS, but it seems to me like it should. I mixed up peppermint oil and water and have been spraying like crazy around the kitchen and the rest of where we're seeing them.
  12. I saw something calling it the "October Slide". We have ants. In half the house. Both kids rooms, the kitchen, the game room. Luckily not in our room or I'd never sleep. Meatloaf & potatoes for dinner for everybody else, sweet potatoes for me. I was planning on creamed spinach, but we might just be doing broccoli and cheese 'cause I'm tired.
  13. Y'know, I realize it's still 90F out, but it's going to get cold before too long. Why the crap don't the stores have decent coats out yet? The only place that had non-frufru coats was one of the western wear stores that had all the FR coats for men - nothing decent for women. Found a coat online - here's hoping it fits when it gets here!
  14. I think it sprinkled yesterday? Hurricane rain doesn't really get out to west Texas much.
