What I’m reading January 2020. Randy Alcorn

My mom bought the series but we were both reading the second one, Dominion at the same time so I got a copy from the library. This is one thick book to finish in 3 weeks while you have lots of other stuff going on.  My mom loaned me book 3, Deception with the promise she’d ask for it back if she got to it before I finished it.

A review of my 2 new Vanguard tripods & bag

Autumn Tyler by KHMaxwell

The pic is of Tyler, well because it’s fall, I love my cat, and it’s the least blurry one form this last photo session. Yes, he got treats. This post and video talks about the

Oh my, I think I have too many tripods :O and that’s not even counting the little ones. Honey, if you’re reading this, yes I’ll be listing my 2 Mefotos soon and the glow in the dark Splat! 🙂 It took a bit to figure out what matters to me and what to look for in a tripod.

Deva Curl compared to Controlled Chaos. Brassy, curly and gray hair that I have, and what I’ve learned in my 40’s.

FYI the entire post is about hair and hair products

Curly Kim Aug 2018 (4)

I saw a gal with beautiful curly hair at Chick-fil-a. It was after I had already discovered Controlled Chaos but went to ask her what she used anyway. She said, Diva Curl. I like that with CC you have one product for defining curls which I found out was not the case with DC. So I answered their questionnaire, a few different ways if I was between answers and then bought a sale package with some extra products thrown in. I’m am sticking with Controlled Chaos. Your mileage may vary.

Probably like lots of curly gals my curls are not the same all over. The back bottom part near my neck is the curliest and shrinks up the farthest in tighter curls, the bangs and top back are hardly even wavy and the rest is somewhere in between.  It’s all frizzy and dry and grows slower than a child waiting on Christmas.

I like most John Grisham books a little better than I did The Reckoning. Continue reading

Complaining and complementing

It seems nothing is made to last anymore, regardless of what you pay! At least with appliances. I don’t know how the landfills are not full of appliances just a few years old. None of those appliances in the first house in 1993 ever had a problem in the 12 years we lived there. Not to jinx it but the fridge in the garage is from that house and is still working.

Outdoor Security Cameras- so many choices

Outdoor cam-sm

I wrote a post recently and found that I was not alone in needing outside security cameras so to help me make sense of the choices I’ll share what I’m looking at. I’ve been compiling this post since then but finally made the time to look up the last of the ones on my list. Maybe you can benefit from my hours and hours of reading and research— we shouldn’t ALL have to go through that! Check marks by the ones I’ve narrowed down to.

If you are not interested in security cameras you can skip this post.

Glasses. Clearer, lighter, less expensive

20190320_101308-smNot that I’m trying to become an advocate for prescription glasses or anything, I was just looking for something better, than the progressive lenses, I started with a few years ago. I know I’m racking up some post talking about it but, with my work, it is imperative that I can see! plus it may help someone else.

Other glasses post can be found by typing the word glasses in the search bar on the home page. https://kimberlyhmaxwell.wordpress.com/?s=glasses 

In my last post, I mentioned there HAD to be something better. My second pair of progressives were indeed better than the first pair, which I’m learning were probably not the right prescription for the close-up part. Continue reading
