Pros: Air Tight, Resilient

Best Uses: Grains, Transportation, Maintain Freshness, Reheating, Leftovers

Describe Yourself: Avid Cook

After years of using cheap plastic containers and as I am doing everything in power at this juncture in my life to contribute to the sustainability of our planet, I am more conscious about harmful toxins in our diet and plastics, and mine and my daughter's overall health, I thought I would try out these containers. They are wonderful! They are air tight and make bringing my lunch to work convenient. I like the fact that I can microwave in them and not worry about the toxins from plastic leeching in to my food. They are also very easy to clean up. I haven't frozen anything in them yet, but I have a feeling these won't disappoint.

Wow. For being very inexpensive, these are fantastic knives! They have a nice weight, feel great in my hands and so far, have stayed nice and sharp! I love them! I plan to buy more Paula Deen Knives based on my experience with these knives!


To post or not to post?

Rather, the question is should I set a scheduled posting day?

As I was up last night until 2 am finishing up homework from one class (have another class to start on the homework tonight!) and being easily distracted (cough catching up Pillars of the Earth on Netflix cough cough and darn farms on facebook need tending), I was thinking I need to set a schedule. I wonder if that would make things easier, let alone structured. I need to keep my content up or I will completely FORGET about this blog.

So I wonder if posting on Saturday nights would be best? Oh sheesh, I just outted myself on my lack of a social life! Hahahaha. Or maybe Sunday nights after the child is in bed? Hmmm, don't know.

I am really excited because I did get the opportunity to take on an extra duty at work and that's good! I was starting to get seriously bored, shhhhhh don't tell my bosses! Hahaha!

Decisions, decisions....

What books have you read this week that rocked?

I just finished Georgette Heyer's A Blunt Instrument. It was awesome however definitely NOT as good as A Death in the Stocks, but still good, eccentric and quirky! I did finish the Darkest Edge of Dawn by Kelly Gay, AWESOME!!!! Blog Tour is on September 2nd (so watch for my review to be posted!). I just started Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh. So far, so good!

Oh and the spam filter that blogger said up seems to be working! I haven't had any spam in an Asian language since it was set up! Hooray! WIN!

Upcoming CSN Stores Review

I am super excited to be hosting another review for CSN stores! As you may know, CSN Stores have OVER 200 online stores where you can find another from Paula Deen Knives to dining room sets to area rugs!

Check out this SUPER cute dining room set, I think it would look perfect in an apartment or for an eat in kitchen.

disclaimer: Please note that CSN stores is giving me a gift card for my time and effort to purchase an item that I will be reviewing with my own independent opinion. The fact that I am given a gift card has ZERO bearing on my ability to give a good, honest and FAIR review. As many of my followers know, I am pretty honest!

Wow... I haven't posted....

In quite sometime. Frankly the Japanese spammers were seriously getting on my nerves. Every time I came to my blogger dashboard all I saw were comments in Japanese (used google translator) and it was for various ads. I switched to using the Captcha (which I despise) and it had no bearing on the amount of spam comments I received. I became burned at and stayed away from blogger for awhile.

So how is everybody in the blogging world? I hope well! Things have been busy in my life, of course! That's nothing new! Now that blogger has the spam inbox, I hope it helps keep the spammers at bay (or at least DECREASED) and I will find the strong desire to start blogging again.

Oh a positive note: the winners of The Imposter's Daughter giveaway have been emailed! Hooray!

I just started reading The Darkest Edge of Dawn by Kelly Gay, it's #2 of her Charlie Madigan series (the first one is a Better Part of Darkness). So far, fantastic! Dark urban fantasy fans will rejoice! It's good stuff already! Check out my review of her first book here
