Things I like

I was going to wait until I had a list of 10 for this post, but was afraid I would forget some by then. ;) These are some things lately that I really like!

1. Italian Gray Squash/Mexican Gray Squash.

I was told this is called by either name. Some Chinese friends of ours grow this in their garden and shared some with us. I LOVE this squash! To me it is better than Zucchini but I can't really put my finger on why. I think I'm going to grow this in the future! You can't tell from this picture, but it is much lighter colored than zucchini.

2. Shout Wipes

Not long ago I was out shopping and spilled something on my shirt. I didn't want to go all the way home, so I just walked around with a stain on my shirt. But I decided I wanted to buy some stain removal wipes to put in my purse. About 2 days after I bought them, my son got a bloody nose in church. He had large blood stains on his white dress shirt. I took some paper towels and put inside his shirt, then used another paper towel with cold water to blot the blood. That took most of it out, but the stain was still there. I remembered the Shout wipes, so pulled one out and blotted the stain. It completely took it out! I usually use Stain Stick on my laundry, but I think I'm switching to Shout!

3. E-mail Comment Follow up

I feel really stupid, but for some reason I have ignored this feature for many years now. My eyes saw it, I'm sure, but it just didn't register with me until Looney pointed it out. I still forget to check the box most of the time, but It's nice to know it's there!

4. Vitamin Water

I don't necessarily love the taste of vitamin water, but I really feel like it is good for you. I've had a couple of days when I was dragging, so I got some of the Vitamin B water. It really did make me feel a little better. If I have the choice between regular water, and vitamin water, I would rather do something to get better nutrition, so I'll pick the vitamin! I don't buy these often, but if I'm out and need a drink, I go for these! The taste isn't bad, but the texture is a little odd. That might sound weird, but it almost tastes like glycerin is in it...kind of soft. But I still like it!

Does that squash taste a little like zuchini?

I love the shout wipes. I took them to Seminary and saved a few girls who got there and found stains on their clothes. :0) One girl had a mustard stain on a pair of white pants right in the front.

I can't do flavored water. I don't like the glycerin taste. I do like Crystal light though, and have been buying boxes of those little packets that you pour into a bottle of water. Can you believe that since I started drinking those for dinner instead of water, that I DON'T have heart burn when I go to bed at night? Go figure! I haven't been doing anything else different and noticed it the very first night that I had drank one of those. Up to then I had horrible heart burn every night when I went to bed.

I never knew about that follow up comment thing either, I guess I'm always in too much of a hurry to leave a comment, so thanks! LOL I just love zucchini, especially fried zucchini, I love that you can get it at Carl's Jr. :) I had one of those stain pen things but one day I think I used it to get out a chocolate milk stain and every time after that when I used it I would smell like sour milk, so I think the wipes are probably much better!
