With all the summer picnics, vacations, and parties I have pick up some extra weight. The inbox of my email had a message from my high school friend which held the answer. If only it were true. Enjoy!
Don't Wash Your Hair In The Shower
It's so good to finally get a health warning that is useful!!!
IT INVOLVES THE SHAMPOO WHEN IT RUNS DOWN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SHOWER WITH IT!!!!
WARNING TO US ALL!!!
I don't know WHY I didn't figure this out sooner! I use shampoo in the shower!
When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed
very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning,
"FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME."
No wonder I have been gaining weight! Well! I have gotten rid of that
shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn dish soap instead.
Its label reads:
"DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE."

Whew, what a week I've had. I made a new friend on Tuesday, the Roto Rooter man, bleach and sanitizer were my besties on Wednesday, babysat for a sweet grandchild when the sitter became ill, attended a wedding, and will celebrate my two year old grandsons birthday tomorrow. My sister in law is coming in on Monday for a five day visit.
However, I did get a phone call from my friend who is selling the contents of her fathers home and wanted to know if I would like to come over and take a look. Yes, thank you very much. I was so excited to get a look at everything before the sale.
I exhibited restraint and came home with two items, and one was purchased for my sister in law.
When I walked into the basement I spotted the slant top desk and thought it was lovely, it needed some tender loving care. I have a slant top desk from my aunts house, and my sister in law always wanted a desk like mine. I called my sister in law and told her told about it, sent a few photos and the deal was sealed for twenty five dollars.
The fancy scroll work was broken off from the bottom of the drawer, but all the pieces were inside the desk drawer. I liked the lines of the desk, the inlaid wood around the lock and handle, along with the design etched in the wood. The inside has little cubby holes and a nice writing area.
How lucky my sister in law is to have a husband who loves to restore and repair furniture.
When shopping estate sales I enjoy digging inside cabinets, boxes, trunks, and checking in back corners of shelves.
My next treasure was found on the top shelf in a corner of the garage. This cone was laying on its side and had water staines, but the treasure seeker in me stood on tip toes and grabbed it. Inside was this table top tree. This is the item that I will keep. One dollar. Love it!
What did you find this week while thrift shopping? I can't wait to see all of your treasures.

While away on a family vacation I didn't watch television, read any newspapers or have any WiFi to use my iPad. I enjoyed my time with the family and the beauty of Door County, Wisconsin.
