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

Still paying for my mistake

P1200010-smThis mistake was avoidable.
The tips to solve it didn’t completely work.
Kicking myself but at least I learned from it.

We have a septic system instead of city water and sewer.  We use a compost bin and we don’t have a garbage disposal. Nothing goes down the toilet except what is supposed to and toilet paper. Food scraps, grease etc is not put down our sink drains.

I don’t enjoy cooking. I tried to use the leftover Mexican flavored meat added to new meat for spaghetti. I put it in the little red strainer to wash off as much of the taco mix seasoning. I did have a bowl under the strainer and threw that water/seasoning/grease mix outside. I did wipe out the red stainer but WAY more grease obviously stayed in those holes than I would’ve thought!

New glasses are better than the old ones but they could be (much) better and Tyler has an appointment of his own.

I paid for premium progressives with maximum viewing area, Digimax® Ultra HD with NeverGlare Advantage poly transition, that came with Crizal no-glare —  in a cheap $29 frame and my glasses still cost $600 not counting the $94. eye exam sans picture of the back of my eyeballs.

2 week roller coaster following Valentines day

This is love. 7of52 sm

I’m not saying I’m only emotional around February and March, but for a few weeks, I sure have the time to celebrate and the time to mourn all bunched close together. It takes some extra effort to try to remember only the happy times. This year my mom gave me all my dad’s old medical records. I should not have looked at those right now.

Cancer sucks!
