Long Live the Cherry Tomato!

I finally found some time to make it outside to get a little more pruning done. Between the kids Specialists appointments it's usually busy enough but throw in PT for T and things get quite crazy. ....yes, we've even showed up at the wrong Drs. office!
But I digress...

I thought I'd work on the gazebo, yes again, or rather still
The Honeysuckle and Cecil Brunner hardly get any water due to the drought and it sure isn't bothering them any!
So I started cutting away and then couldn't believe my eyes!
My little Cherry Tomato

was climbing up and over the gazebo!
And it was full of tomatoes! 
Hey, hey, no judging!  LOL
Lately I barely step out the door to feed the dogs.

With all my helpers down everything falls to me.

I had been using one of my birdcages to
 help keep it off the ground.

But only had it climbed up where it was planted
 it went around the corner and there were more tomatoes.

Now that was just the outside of the gazebo,
It had gone inside too, lol.

 If you look really hard, you can see it's yellow flowers
all the way to the right at the top.
More red toms towards the bottom. 

Even more.

Crazy plant!
My Dad would be proud.
He had the ultimate veggie garden,
name a veggie and he grew it.
He made his Tomato Cages out of Sheep Fencing
and were about 8ft. tall.
His tomatoes filled them every year -
Early Girl, Big Boy, Better Boy, all his faves.

Mine may not have been Early Girl

she never really got started

neither did Big Boy

I'll stick to my all time fav - Sweet 100,
and remember the year she reached for the sky and made it!

MY Konjac Sponge All Natural Fiber Body Sponge with Activated Bamboo Charcoal Review #konjacsponge

I was so excited when the people from 
asked if I'd like to review their
Since I loved their
MY Konjac Sponge Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sponge,
of course I said yes!
It arrives sealed in it's bag.
It's wave design is cute, named the 
Six Wave Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Body Sponge

I won't lie, it's as very hard.....
 BUT don't let that fool you.
Once thoroughly wet it softens into a luxurious sponge
 that gently exfoliates your skin while drawing out dirt, excess oil and removing impurities while refining pores.

   All the while making your skin feel - oh so soft.
It's even gentle enough for everyday use.

 Rinse after use, squeeze out water and let air dry. 
 If taken care of properly it should last 2 - 3 months.

To sanitize MY Konjac Sponge All Natural Fiber Body Sponge with Activated Bamboo Charcoal 
it is recommend to place the sponge in a bowl of water
 and microwave it for 1:30 minutes
or boil the sponge in boiling water for 2 minutes.

Sanitizing the sponge it recommended every 2 weeks.

You can find
MY Konjac Sponge All Natural Fiber Body Sponge with Activated Bamboo Charcoal
on Amazon,
 or their website where they show
 their complete line of fab products.
Be sure to check out their Facebook and Instagram pages for updates and behind the scenes photos of how these awesome sponges are made. 

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted price from MY Konjac Sponge.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Helga's Diary on a Cruise

All packed for the cruise ship -- all my nicest dresses, swimsuits, short sets. Really, really exciting. Our local Red Hat chapter - The Late Bloomers decided on this "all-girls" trip. It will be my first one - and I can't wait!
Entire day at sea, beautiful. Saw whales and dolphins. Met the Captain today -- seems like a very nice man.
At the pool today. Did some shuffleboard, hit golf balls off the deck.
Captain invited me to join him at his table for dinner. Felt honored and had a wonderful time. He is very attractive and attentive.
Won $800.00 in the ship's casino. Captain asked me to have dinner with him in his own cabin. Had a scrumptious meal complete with caviar and champagne. He asked me to stay the night, but I declined. Told him I could not be unfaithful to my husband.
Pool again today. Got sunburned, and I went inside to drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day. Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks. Really is quite charming. Again asked me to visit his cabin for the night. Again I declined. He told me, if I did not let him have his way with me, he would sink the ship... I was shocked.
Today I saved 2600 lives.

Paint'em Pretty - Pure Ice Home Run

I know it's been a while since I've posted my ''prescribed'' me time as ordered by my therapist, but I have been squeezing it in here and there. Just not squeezing it in my blogging...I know bad me!
This is to hold me accountable for said 'me time', but sometimes life's priorities have a way of taking over.

But I digress....

Home Run by Pure Ice, love the color.
Sure I love the more expensive brands of polish but when on a budget Pure Ice brand is a fav and available at Walmart.
2 coats did the trick topped with 1 coat of
 my fav top coat Sally Hansen's Megashine.
 Being short on time, a decal of white flowers with sparkles
was all my accent nail received which made for a very neat and clean look.
Add some me time to your life and bring back the things you used to love to do!
