Wonders of the week #8

(In no particular order.)
1. Loving these Tul pens. A friend who was raving about them.
Normally I'm not a fan of gel pens but these dry quickly.
They write smooth and pretty. 

2. I've struggled with cleaning all the tile in this house since we 
moved in. I finally found a good solution! Bissell Power Fresh 
Steam Mop. It uses only water, so NO chemicals involved, and it 
heats up hot and kills 99.9 percent of germs and bacteria. 

It steams out grim or stuck on food. 
Claims to work on all hard floors

It's a very light weight simple machine. $89. from Amazon. And it's quiet so I can listen to music 
while I "work"....but don't expect a work out from it. As long as a person can walk and be upright, 
they can use this with no problem. 

3. Violet got a new pair of glasses!

And have you ever seen such a cute little glass case to go with it?

4. We received a late Christmas gift this week.....

Here's a few close ups.
Laurynn, Macie, Kylie, Téa
Austin, Chandler, Jonas

5. We pass by this business nearly every single day since it's less 
than a mile from our house. We're always left wondering...

It's usually at night when we go by, and the flags are all lit up.
Dennis calls it the United Nations.

But this is their sign.

Just so odd. 

6. I have some advice for you.
Don't lean your back against your fridge while standing in the 
kitchen talking to your husband.....because even if you hear the 
water running behind you, you'll think it's just the ice maker 
filling you won't move while the pocket of your sweater, and 
your shoes fill up with water. Just saying.

Jill, I have to tell you I laughed out loud for about 5 minutes over the advice about leaning against the fridge! And then when I would think about it through the day, I would chuckle again. You are so cute! I love your favorite things post and I am seriously interested in that steam mop!! Miss Winkles was still under construction when we moved away. It looks very formal for a pet adoption center...

Scrappily....Don't know where your comment had been hiding all this time but I'm glad I finally saw it. Glad you like my wonders of the week. I like to keep track of things I notice :)
