Ring the Bell!

I've been looking at buying a training tool for Bea that goes over the door knob to outside. When the dog needs to go out, she's supposed to ring the bells. Well, when I saw the price on them, I couldn't justify buying it (they want around $17.00 for one...and it's just a piece of ribbon with "Christmas" bells attached). So what do I do? I make my own of course!

Now according to the website, the bells they use are "special." WHATEVER! I bought a spool of ribbon, some snaps, some Christmas bells, and grabbed some extra key chains that were just sitting around. I set off to work and in just a few minutes I had one made up and ready to go! Bea hasn't been outside yet since I've finished it, so I'll try it with her when we go outside before bed. It will be awesome if she figures it out quickly!

Bang! Bang!

I've been shot!!!!! Ok, so maybe not in that sense. I went and got my flu shot today. Of course when I got dressed this morning I wasn't thinking about the flu shot...I was thinking about warmth. So when I tried to push up my sleeve, the stitching right at the wrist area wouldn't budge up much past my elbow. Luckily for me, the shirt I was wearing had a few buttons down the front, so I just slipped my shoulder out. Yep, there I was showing everyone skin! lol

Now that I've been shot, I know how John feels. He was shot yesterday. I hope the crumminess won't last too long! I was getting a little warm right after the shot, but that's gotten better. I just have a case of the blahs now. At least I have something to think about that I'm looking forward to that will keep my mind busy! It's gonna be a great day on Saturday! :D

Leftovers Queen

I didn't know which blog to enter this, so I decided I'd put it here, and then later I'll enter the meat sauce recipe on my other blog.

This past week I took out some meat sauce I had made and frozen this past spring/early summer. I cooked up some spaghetti in my new microwave pasta cooker and had that one night. Of course, I still had sauce left over, so I was trying to decide what to do with it. I thought about pizza, but forgot to pick up tortillas (for the crust), and I didn't want to make homemade dough. Thinking back, I have biscuits in the fridge...I could've rolled those out! Duh! Anyway, I decided I'd do something with pasta again. This time I grabbed a box of mac & cheese! I fixed that up, added a little extra 1/2 & 1/2, then threw the meat sauce into the cheese sauce (I get that all melted before I add the macaroni back in). So there it was. Mac & Cheesy Beef! On the top I sprinkled some extra Parmesan cheese (the refrigerated kind...not the green shaker). Yeah, I think I'm getting good at this! lol I'm having the Mac & Cheesy Beef for lunch today, and I have another bowl full in the fridge.
