Works For Me Wednesday--Painters Tape

I got a little time to write a Works for Me Wednesday Post. This week, I decided to write about 3M Scotch Painters’ Tape. Yes, that lovely blue tape is a dear friend of mine. It allows me to post Seth’s artwork on my pantry when I have run out of refrigerator room. It is also very handy when it comes to childproofing a hotel room. I just slap a piece of tape over an outlet. Now, Seth is getting older and he is beginning to figure out he can remove the tape. But it has still been a lifesaver in my house.

It has been helpful at school as well. Since they painted at school this summer, we were not allowed to put anything on the wall that would take paint off. Waalah! Painters’ tape to the rescue! This is just a clever invention that can be used for many things—I wish it had been invented when I had all my teen idol posters in my room—it would’ve saved my mom a lot of stress!

3M Scotch Painters’ Tape is what works for me, and please be sure to visit our sponsor Shannon over at Rocks in My Dryer to get more ideas from others that could work for you too!

Time to Blog?

It has been tough to find a minute to update lately. Last weekend, we journeyed to Salter Path, where we spent some time with our friends from Wisconsin, Ron and Beverly Flintrop. They come to NC twice a year--once in the fall and once in the spring--and they like to spend that time at the beach. It also happened to be the weekend of the Swansboro Mullet (the fish, not the hairstyle) Festival. We had planned to go to the Mullet Festival on Saturday, but it rained all day, so we worked in a trip to the aquarium, which Seth loved.

Sunday, before coming home, we were able to stop by the Mullet Festival to enjoy some music and to see Uncle Johnny, Aunt Nette, Katie, and Brent.

Fall Is Here!

How about this fall weather? I do like fall weather, but with it come a weather change and allergy problems. There are a lot of things I ENJOY about the fall--pumpkins, cider, trick or treating...Halloween is on the horizon.

We have had an interesting past few days. Seth's daycare caught fire on Tuesday night, so we have been having to make arrangements with the grandparents for childcare. I don't think it has bothered Seth and I know it hasn't bothered the grandparents! Today, he joined Mama Jane, Aunt Lesley, and Carson and Caitlyn on a trip to Briley's Pumpkin Patch.

We just received word tonight that our daycare has acquired temporary facilities across the street at the University Church of God. We will be grateful to get Seth back into his routine, but we are glad he got to spend time with his grandparents.
