This is hands down one of the best pecan pies I have ever eaten. Once you start eating this pie, you can't stop.  I will always make this pie when I need or want pecan pie. When you

This Weeks To Do List!

Last week was a super catch up week. Got so much finished and caught up. It was really hard to stay on track, as I had so much planned for each day.

 I finished everything on my list, which was awesome!

So this week, with only 4 days left, my schedule 

Day 4 Memorial Day!

First thing we did was get the bamboo by the side fence planted. We were just so tired last night.

Then I made breakfast while Don got in the pool.

He actually ate his breakfast in

Day 3 Memorial Weekend!

We went out early and cut the bamboo up. Don used his saw on it. That was a 
much bigger job than we thought it would be, 

Day 2 of Memorial Weekend!

We had company coming over, so I got the upstairs all cleaned up. That was actually on 

Day 1 of 4 Memorial Weekend!

I love, love, love the black bamboo. I found this black "running" bamboo. I decided since I can't plant this in my yard, I would put it in

Cheap Security!

This is a great way to add added security to your home. We have ADT but wanted something for when we didn't want the alarm system all the way on. 


For under $80.00 I have every door area in the house covered. The nice thing about the two larger ones, (see video at bottom),  is you can move these around. We have a "Man Cave" upstairs in the back and you can't hear anything in the house. I put one on the steps, and another in the hallway upstairs. I now can sit up their with my 9 mm  and be very comfortable that I would know if anyone were to try to come up. The best thing about these two larger ones, is you can't get close enough to them to turn them off before they sound. I love these. 

**I did try the ones at Lowe's first by GE, but they were not reliable enough for me. They were not very loud and didn't go off EVERY TIME I stepped in front of them . These go off EVERY TIME.  I got these from Home Depot. They are called Doberman Security. 

** The larger ones take a 9 volt battery, not included.  The ones for the doors come ready to turn on. Batteries included. 

Let me know if you have used these and how you like them. Or if you decide to try these, let me know how you like them.
