Tuesday- September 30

Last day of the month. Was raining mostly all night and looks like today is really going to help bring Fall in further.Raining again and suppose to continue all day. Dreary . I miss the sun and the clear, blue sky. Even Jakey just wants to sleep.
Have been busy looking at online videos and reading about Arizona and California's dry camping, RV parks. Also, we have points on our timeshare to use for next year, so will need to take a look at where we will want to fly to next Spring, without it costing us too much for air. I've had a few ideas in mind to travel to, but either the air is too much or the flights are too early, and Gerry and I don't do early morning flights.

Erika received a bunch of the other winning lighters and her own Bic lighter creation that won her $1,000 a few months ago. They will be in convenience stores in Canada from now till the end of the year.

She has messaged Bic to see if indeed these are out in stores yet.She received 5 of her own design, which she will be keeping one and passing the rest out to the family.

Gerry started going for his own wood this year. Has the chain saw, the truck and of course the log splitter. Went out 2 days in a row.Good he did that over the last 2 days as we are in for 2 days of rain now. 

His dad passed away last week though so he took a day for bereavement leave but has a few more coming. We have to leave town this week for a few things to do in the city, so will take the balance of those days then.

Told him to be on the lookout for 2 small trees for our front yard. We have alot of trees in the back yard but would be nice to have some in the corners of the front yard. Had thought about a fence there or a hedge but the fence would cost too much, and we have enough wasps/hornets with the neighbors hedges to the right of us, that I don't think I want more to the left of us as well. You have to be careful getting in and out of our vehicles in the Spring/Summer.

Review: Duck Brand- Peel and Stick Laminate

Once you make renovations to your kitchen (or just a clean up) you want to protect the work that you did. This is why for our new kitchen cupboards, Gerry added the  Duck brand peel and stick laminate, (choosing the Pearl Marble design), to the drawers and the cupboards.

The printed grid backing made it super easy for cutting and measuring. 

It will also protect the inside of the cupboard bottoms and drawers from scratches or moisture damage, which was really important to me. Plus it comes in so many colors and patterns that you can have your kitchen reflect your personality whether it be pretty funky or classic. You can even preposition it to get that proper look, even if things don't go perfect the first try!

Since Gerry has more patience with these things than me, you can see I had him do the work. I had the fun of picking out the design and seeing the finished project! Thanks hun!

Erika Takes Part in Breaking The World Record For The Longest Lemonade Stand

Breaking a world record in Calgary on September 18, 2014  for the World’s Longest Lemonade Stand - our daughter Erika to the right in this photo below:

Baytex Energy Corp. sponsored and participated in an attempt to break the standing record held in the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Longest Lemonade Stand.  In all, there was  351 decorated stands taking part from various companies and groups hoping to sell as much of the donated lemonade as possible in a three hour span. Where Erika works, Valiant , they manned two stands.

The goal for the event was mostly the world record, but more so to raise funds and awareness for a cause that has touched so many; bullying.  “Dare to Care” , a  charitable organization behind the initiative and hope they can help kids by providing bullying awareness and prevention programs to the school community.

The event ended up breaking the world record for the longest lemonade stand, coming in at over 1,500 feet with 357 stands. In addition to that they raised approximately $150,000 from the stand donations and $23,450 in lemonade sales! And all of those funds are going to help Dare to Care implement anti-bullying programs in schools.

Way to go everyone!

Review: Dust Off

Falcon Safety Products, Inc. is the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of compressed-gas products, including the leading brand of consumer electronics cleaning accessories, the one and original Dust-Off®.
Since the introduction of the computer duster in the 1970’s, Falcon has remained focused on this growing niche category.
Fighting the build-up of dirt, dust and other contaminants in and around the home.

Our reviewer Cynthia says:

I love the product, "Dust Off"....I am an avid sewer and quilter, plus I have four cats, so my house is always getting fur, dust or lint.  I use Dust Off on my sensitive computer sewing machines to clean lint and dust in the bobbins without any worry of it damaging the parts.  It is the best way to clean out the small spaces that my fingers can't reach.  I also like this product for my computer keyboard....my cats are famous for jumping on my desk and so their fur in always inbetween the keys in my keyboard.  I have a printer also, and lots of other delicate products, which I trust 100% WITH Dust Off.  It does what it says it does....dust off.

My own opinion of Dust Off:

I liked using Dust Off to get spots where I know it's not easy to get dust out of, and must say it can be addictive once you start using it and cleaning all the spots where dust settles in!
