Pinterest Pin of the Day Tuesday 7-29-14

When I went to the doctor last week my blood pressure was 168/100. It has been up for a while now and if I don't get it down they are going to put my on medicine. I hate taking medicine when I know good and well I can lower it if I put some effort into it. I think I might try this. There isn't a site to go to just this imagine uploaded to Pinterst. Not sure where it came from originially. I know these ingredients can't hurt me.

Pinterest Pin of the Day 7-28-14

This one really caught my eye because I am honestly drowning in student loan debt. Since I lost my full time job and am only working part time I haven't been able to pay on them at all. I keep applying for a full time but nothing so far and its been about 2 years. I am really interested in increasing my income from my blog and other sources. So far Avon hasn't been a big increase but to be honest, its because I haven't put enough effort into it. That is my goal for August to get my sales up to over $300 each campaign.  But I would love to earn some money from blogging etc..

Do you make money from your blog? And if so, do you have any tips to share?

Pinterest Pin of the Day 7-27-14

Lately, my soul has craved to grow closer to God and be more like Christ. I have been praying more but instead of growing closer, I seem to see more and more flaws with myself. I saw this video and it hit me hard. I can't say as I have ever led a single soul to Christ. I don't even think I have planted any seed :(.

Pinterest Pin of the Day Saturday 7-26-14

I have been slacking :). But I have been so busy. My supervisor's son in law had cancer and was in Hospice and finally passed away :( and I was having to work 10 hour days and just couldn't keep up with all things Internet.

Anyway, I was surfing around today and found this pin. I tried to google to see if there were any studies to prove it worked but couldn't find anything at all to say yay or nay. I hate hate hate snakes so I am going to try this. It can't hurt and who knows, maybe it will work.

All Natural Snake Repellent Ingredients Clove oil Cinnamon oil Simply mix a 50:50 mixture of clove and cinnamon oils and spray them around the foundation of your home, dog houses, walkways, garages, doors or anywhere you want to keep snakes away from.

Has anyone tried this and if so does it work?

Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal Cat Litter

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Smiley 360, I was sent a coupon for a free 14 lb box the New Arm &; Hammer Clump and Seal Cat Litter

NEW ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ cat litter, the biggest advancement in cat litter history. No other litter forms a tight seal around odor and destroys it with unique odor eliminators and ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda. Experience this breakthrough technology for yourself!

Give us 7 days. We’ll give you an odor-free home—guaranteed.

Visit them on for special offers, product information and reviews from cat owners who have made the switch!

“Like” them on Facebook for special offers, news and to let them know how it feels having an odor-free home for 7 days!

 This litter is a finer grain than what we usually use. It doesn't stick to the cats feet so there aren't any stray grains in the floor to step on. Cat litter grains are about as bad as needles on bare feet. Even with 3 cats using the litter pan, we had no odor issues and it was very easy to scoop. We have one cat who we jokingly say no one wants to go to the bathroom after she has been there but thank goodness with Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal, its not an issue. We like this product a lot. Normally around here its 7.99 which is about average for scoopable cat litter. There is a $3 coupon on their web site. that goes great with the sales going on at various stores right now.

Lady Elaine loves this new litter as you can see in this picture. The other 2 cats are more camera shy :)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from Smiley 360 . Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Pinterest Pin of the Day for Tuesday 07/15/2014

My ex husband brought our daughter up a bucket full of blackberries. She wanted me to make a cobbler out of some of them. I decided to look on Pinterest to see what I could find. I found the easiest cobbler recipe I have ever made and it turned out perfect. My daughter was like "this is the perfect cobbler, ever".  The site said it was adapted from a recipe by the Pioneer Woman. I have't ever looked up her recipe to see how it differs but this one here worked for me and its a keeper for our family.

Pinterest Pin of the Day 07/10/2014

Today hasn't been a good day for me. I was driving to work and there was smoke coming out the tailpipe of my car. I made it but have been so upset since then worrying and not even knowing what to do. So thats the story behind today's pin. I don't have any idea on where the original picture came from, all I have it the pinterest link that only leads to the picture.  I dearly need some peace though and strength.

Pinterest Pin of the Day 7/9/2014

I love surfing around the Internet and I love pinning so I thought I would combine those things so I could come up with some more posting ideas to share with you.  I figured I would start sharing my favorite pin for each day. Its impossible to guess what all the pins might be about because its hard to say what will catch my fancy. I am interested in such a variety of things.

I feel like my house has been invaded by flies so I am going to give this a shot both indoors and outdoors.

Chicken and Dumpling Bake

There are few meals that I like better than chicken and dumplings but I rarely fix it for some reason. Someone on my Facebook list shared this recipe a couple months ago and we have made it a number of times since then. We made it like twice the same week to start with :). It is really good and easy to make which are things I look for in a recipe. I am trying to get this to adapt to crockpot to make it even easier.

Check it out on Deep South Dish

Let me know how you like this recipe.
