Organized the Bathroom, eliminated some shoes!

So, recently,  I got a new haircut, which of course brought all the hair fixing gadgets out of the closet and into regular use. My hair was braided for about 4 years but now I'm ready to Girl it up again.

I'm also trying to get into the FLYLady system again too, which requires decluttering and organizing, because "you can't organize clutter."

The thing is, I needed space on the bathroom's small vanity and a few feet away, a shoe holder was stuffed with high heels I never wear. So, I put the heels into a box and filled the shoe holder with all the makeup and hair gadgets and stuff.

Am I probably the first person to do this? No. Do I feel like a genius anyway? Yes.

Only the last few generations have messed up public breastfeeding.

Even when everyone dressed modestly, a little exposure for the sake of nursing a baby was totally ok. Why isn't a little exposure ok now that practically no one dresses modestly?

Thanks to Historic Breastfeeding Photos on Facebook for this pic.

Moccasins for Sale

I bought some AWESOME vintage moccasins at a thrift store, hoping they would fit me or my husband. They fit him but he's not interested in wearing them. They are all suede, and there's a very thin, flimsy insole inside. The brand is Taos, Indian Maid. They are green and funky with fringe. I'd like to start the bidding at $10. Bid in the comments section of the blog post please (below). Bidding will close on Jan 30. Based on Hubby's normal shoe size, he's guessing they are size 9.5 or 10.

Bid price includes shipping within the USA!  Leave your email address with your contact info!

Banana Raspberry Butter Mochi

No Cow's Milk and No Wheat makes this a winner for people with allergies to those.

The texture of mochi is rather GOOEY, but the bananas make it a little more like sticky boogers. Yep, that's right. This is a recipe for boogers. REALLY yummy boogers. If you eat it with a fork instead of your fingers, you might not notice the booger-y-ness as much.

This is another variation on this basic butter mochi recipe.


  • 1 pound mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 2 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1.5 cups coconut milk from the dairy section of the super market
  • 1 can coconut milk (see picture for two kinds of coconut milk)
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 bananas, peeled and mashed
  • 1.5 cups frozen (or fresh) raspberries, crushed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla and milkS. 
  3. In a separate larger bowl, stir together the rice flour, sugar, and baking powder. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir to blend. 
  4. Mix in melted butter 
  5. In the already used wet stuff bowl, mash up the bananas and raspberries, mix into big bowl
  6. Pour into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Cool completely, then cut into squares to serve.

I make Milk, What's your Super Power?

It's old news that Facebook is against breastfeeding. They shut down group after group of breastfeeding fans. They delete people's private breastfeeding photos. Meanwhile, dirty pictures proliferate on the site. It always annoys me, but most recently they shut down The Leaky Boob, and that is a REALLY good site.

I would LOVE to boycott Facebook, but with friends and family all over the world, that just isn't going to happen.

I had posted a plan here to flood Facebook with real obscenity reports, but The Leaky Boob and other Facebook BF Advocates think that is not the right approach, so since it's not my own battle, and I was only trying to help them win their battles, fine. Don't go reporting stuff like nasty porn because I told you to. This was never about telling you to report every cleavage shot out there, just the really truly nasty stuff that would be sold in magazines that have to be wrapped in black plastic. Evidently, The Leaders don't think even that stuff should get reported. Okie dokie.

The two people who did report high amounts of obscenity reports will be getting aliens from me in the mail as soon as I have time to make more.

For some humor, here are some dirty pictures from my personal collection:
