I wonder if my white tulips, that I have layered in my containers on the patio, will come back up this year? I hope so. I just love tulips.
I was online looking at Wayfair the other day. And I noticed something that said I had reward points. I hadn't known about this. Missed it somehow.
It said I had $25 in rewards money. I called and asked what this was. It's points you accumulate as you make purchases.
So I ordered this hand mixer. I haven't had a mixer in a few years, so I thought I might need one at some point, and this one was the right price.
I only had to pay $2 for it with my rewards money, just for having bought products from Wayfair. Good deal!
What I particularly want to show you about this mixer is that underneath it is storage for the beaters/attachments.
As I'm very conscious of living in a small space, I look for products that have storage, if possible, so it saves me space. Or at least doesn't take up even more space.
Not only that, but I won't have to look everywhere for the beaters when I go to use it!
The stand serves another purpose. You can sit your mixer on the plastic bowl rest when you need to use your hands, which is a great addition for me, queen of clumsy. A bowl rest was an additional feature that sold me on this mixer.
However, I haven't used it yet. I'll let you know my review when I do.
I had a stand mixer before I moved here, a pretty red Sunbeam I'd had for many years, but sold it because it was so big. I didn't really like hand mixers because of that very problem: where to sit it when you need to use your hands to get ingredients, etc.
This solves that problem as well. So I'm a happy camper.
Do you know what crowns cost these days? It was going to be $2400 if I paid cash! Holy smokes!
I let my dental insurance go because they wouldn't pay for anything but having your teeth cleaned once per year. NOTHING on expenses like crowns.
So tomorrow I go back to get my teeth cleaned and be screened for oral cancer, which my dentist really encourages. Around $200 for the screening and cleaning. But sure better than $2400. And that price was only good if they didn't have to do a build up for my crown.
They encouraged me to be screened for oral cancer. They told me that if you have stage 3 or 4 oral cancer, it can be seen with the naked eye. But in the earlier stages, it can be caught with the screening.
So you might think about this when you go to your dentist next.
She thought my toothache is from sinus inflammation. So I headed to CVS and had the pharmacist help me find a medication that doesn't mess with your blood pressure. And they have them now for special needs like high blood pressure.
Don't know what mine is. I stopped taking it a few months ago. It's too upsetting when it's high. I figure I see my internist next month. I'll let her take it.
If you need a lift in this cold weather, the tulips at Walmart were under $5!
