Ok, Cheryl, you asked for it

Rugby843.com posted pictures of the items she carries in her bag…granted she did it for a challenge, and she has admitted to downsizing her bag since the grandkids all carry their own stuff now.

She challenged anyone reading to do the same. (show a pic of the bag..well STUFF in the bag…. not downsize their own)

So (of course) I decided to clean out my bag prior to posting anything. I’m sure no one wants to see the baggie of cookies that disintegrated in the bottom of my bag, nor do they wish to see a diaper that I carry for Sally next door when she has her grandbaby over and forgot to prepare. I figured we had to only show the stuff that is usually in our bags……..so here it is and no snark from the peanut gallery. EVERYTHING I have is essential…maybe.

yes, that is a drill. it is also a screwdriver. and yes, that is a mouse trap. don’t ask. There’s my NEW phone and my Kindle (Thank you Aidan J Reid!!!), and just assorted stuff and things.

Now, what’s in YOUR bag?

NanoPoblano, Day 5


Day five of the peppery challenge AKA NanoPoblano, brought to us by the happiest cheerpepper of them all, Rarasaur!

I love challenges. I don’t like playing by their rules, but I love writing them, thinking about them or completing them. This one caught my eye because of the oddball name. I LOVE oddball names!

NanoPoblano, day 4


Ok, so the challenge is to write every single blessed day for a month. Now I have completed monthly challenges before so this one shouldn’t be to difficult…yet..I keep seeing that little chili pepper in the badge and thinking Hot Stuff.  It’s a chili…they are hot.  Except the pepper is supposed to be a poblano………it’s in the name.  This is causing my right brain to have a conniption fit while my left brain is saying “oh, calm down..it’s just a monthly challenge”…and the right once again speaks out with blather…”it’s a poblano pepper, Suze..write about peppers!. Peppers are cool..and green..or maybe yellow. I like yellow. Bananas are yellow”.

NanoPoblano, day 2

I keep thinking about peppers.  Yes, I know, I know….this IS the NanoPoblano Challenge after all and there’s a big ol pepper right smack in the middle of the badge…so what else should I be thinking of? Rarasaur had no idea what she was getting into when she created this thing….I bet she is shaking her head in complete confusion now that I have started posting in this thing. I feel sort of sorry for the poor girl…NOT!
