Totally Random and a Coffee Chat

Have you ever wondered why they put nipples on mannequins?  Isn't the purpose of a bra (well, at least one of the purposes) to hide your nipples under your clothes?  So they build mannequins with nipples and don't put bras on them.  Yeah.  That makes perfect sense!

Ryan Anderson (Houston Rockets) and Evan from the Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise... Similar? They remind me of each other.

Now that they are side-by-side,  I only see it a little bit.  I mean, I can tell why one reminds me of the other, but they really don't look much alike.  Facial hair?  Hair color? Hmmmm.

Today, coffee chat asks us:
Create a phrase or statement, that you carry 
with you throughout the coming year.

I've never given that much thought.  I don't have a mantra.  I guess I could take this Facebook quiz which will tell me my mantra, based on.... what?  Let's find out.
That's a pretty good mantra, I suppose.  But it's not something I would say.  I'd say something snarky like, "It is what it is."  Or "The glass isn't half empty or half full; either way, it's got the same amount of liquid in it."

Maybe my mantra should be, "Don't rock the boat," based on things that are going on in my life lately.  It could also be, "You can't be right every time."

 Or perhaps I need a Biblical mantra such as, "Judge not, lest ye be judged," or "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Oh, who knows?!  I think I'll just decide my mantra on the fly as things happen!

Have a great week!

Small Things

I am once again joining Rachel Ann from Home Sanctuary in an attempt to bring some peace, order, and beauty to my home and life.

In reference to being organized she says,

"If you struggle to stay organized at home, part of the problem isn't so much with YOU.
It's with your tools.
You've GOT to have the right tools, or it will always feel too hard to do anything...
Today's Small Thing is to take stock of your cleaning supplies.  
Make a list of the things you need, and have them ready to go...by next Wednesday."
She recommends keeping the cleaning supplies near the area where you will be using them.  For example, get a plastic container or some kind of organizer in each room, particularly under each sink in your home.  She suggested this years ago when she was blogging about "small things" to do, and I did it.  I love having my cleaning supplies under the counter in each bathroom and the kitchen, right at my fingertips. After taking stock, I realize I need Comet and cleaning wipes.  It's a great tip and makes cleaning easier.
You can read her entire blog post here.
Happy organizing!

Home Sanctuary

A few years ago, I participated in a project on Rachel Ann Ridges' blog known as Home Sanctuary, and she has graciously invited us to join her again.

At this time, I only know that Monday's theme is "peace."  I'm including a poem.

Best wishes!
