Tide for COLDWATER, say it's so!

that's the sunshine on the towel

There is a pile of laundry somewhere in my house, all the time. I could wash all day, walk upstairs and find another heap of laundry. I give up, I am defeated by the dirty clothes.

This is a photo of my Christmas Tree skirt, towels, shirts, and more towels. Why in the world would I be washing the tree skirt? It's  been claimed by our cat for the month of December as his blanket under the tree. To pack it away for the year I best wash it, don't you think?

I have been washing all our clothes in cold water for years. One day long ago I just decided to use cold water, all the time. Back in the day of powdered laundry detergent I would find clumps of undissolved powder in the washing machine drum.

Thanks to all the laundry detergent makers, liquid laundry soap began to find it's place on more and more store shelves.

P&G recently introduced Tide® laundry soap just for cold water use. Cool,  I'll buy that.


Why use Tide® For COLDWATER:

*Conserve energy
*Save on your utility bill
*Give your hot water heater a rest
*Same clean clothes as in warm or hot water
*use for whites and darks
*Fresh Scent and Mountain Spring Scents
*Clean Clothes
*(there is even a powder just for coldwater)

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara.

I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o
