Chill, Baby.

Vacu Vin Rapid Ice Wine Chiller

Wine.  OMT likey.  I offer Exhibit A, Exhibit B and Exhibit C  (this last one is really taking liberties when I say “wine”). I prefer whites, but will drink a sweet red.  Dry reds not so much.  They make my face squinch in unflattering spasms. When I enjoy my whites, I like them chilled properly.  […]

Camping/Hiking Enthusiast? This.

Outdoor Stanley Mountain Vacuum Food System

Have I ever mentioned that while I love me some fancy-pants camping equipment, I’m not so much a happy camper, at least not roughing-it camping, you know, just a tent, in the woods, alone with the bears.  ~gasp!~  It’s totally true.  Hate the activity, love the stuff.  There’s just something about all that gear that […]

Gone Weed Huntin’

Chapin 20000 1-Gallon Lawn and Garden Sprayer

Our yard, our beautiful lawn, gives us hours of enjoyment every year. Usually, I do a few things to keep everything growing and humming along, and the weeds to a minimum, but this year we have a weed bonanza that I simply can’t keep ahead of by manually pulling the aggravating interlopers. So what’s a […]

Oatmeal in a Pouch: Suck It!

Oatmeal in a Pouch: Suck It!

Oh, my.  The German is horrified at my unladylike language.  Suck it?!  Oh, Pat-TEE! Have you no shame? None.  Come on, Mom.  I think we established that a long time ago. Back to the subject at hand: Oatmeal in a pouch.  Huh? ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your […]

There’s STILL a What in My WHAT!

Sweet E using Booster Chair

Back in the early days of Sweet E babyhood, I ordered a booster seat for his visits and then wrote about it.  I honestly didn’t think we’d get much use out of it, but I figured we’d at least get the worth of what it cost us out of it.  I was right and then […]

Perfect Drinking Companion: Breeze Breathalyzer

Breeze Breathalyzer

We’re all adults here and some of us imbibe in a drink with dinner, at Happy Hour or at a concert in the park when out with friends.  The trick is to know when enough is enough before getting behind the wheel and driving.  Personally, I never drink if I know I’ll be driving, not […]

Children’s Books We Love

Gossie

I am the book grandmama, there is no doubt about that.  I have been a book lover since my earliest memories and I was thrilled when Boy followed in my footsteps.  Now it’s Sweet E’s turn, as he loves a good book too. Here are a few that we (me and E) are loving right […]
