Two summer tips

Hi everyone.  This isn't a stitching post. 
 Just wanted to remind you of this product, invaluable for sandals and summer sling backs, tank top and spaghetti straps, and peeking bra straps.  My legs are crossed and I'm twisting my ankles, and look how the straps still hold.  I was never able to wear these because of the sling constantly falling down.

You can buy it wherever they sell support hosiery or at a home health care store.  Water soluble, easy to remove, doesn't stain.

My other tip is how to cut your or your kid's bangs.  When you pull from the sides to the center and make one cut, the center will be shorter and the edges slightly longer, so you don't have that straight across chop look.
I just killed this little devil in the kitchen.  Having a husband that goes into prophylactic anaphylactic shock,  I can't mess around and need to kill every one whether I can identify it or not.  Some are wasps, some yellow jackets, some hornets, and they are entering the house from a location we haven't determined.
We have the tractor narrowed down to three choices and no idea which we will choose.  I've gained 20 pounds since fall and nothing fits, so to burn a few calories, I will try cutting the yard with the little push mower a little at a time until we decide.  I hate to exercise but Leslie Sansone and I need to get back together.

Enjoy your weekend - thank you for visiting!

Oh Marly! I hear ya! I have gained 10 lbs. this year. It is such a drag. I get on the treadmill 10 minutes at a time currently. It is all I can take because of the pain. It is such a cycle. If I walk too much, more pain. More pain can't walk for a while. Gain, gain, gain.

Oh, Marly ~
It goes on so easily but sure doesn't come off that way! If I'd lose even 10 pounds, I'd have another whole wardrobe!
Hugs to ya' :)

Well, you are just a wellspring of useful info, now aren't you?? Right now I'm trying to grow my bangs, so no cutting going on here....As for the weight thing...hmmmm...I'm sure I've gained over the long winter - I usually do - but, once I shed the long johns and can lose two pairs of socks and don some shorts, we shall see.... !!! Glad to read you're being so, not so much. Send me some motivation please!!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Ugh! I need to loose 10 plus pounds, started walking this week. Wish the weight came off as easy as it goes on!

We all have the same comment--it goes on easy enough, why doesn't the weight come off just as easily! I do Leslie dvd's too! Now that pollen season has ended, I can walk outdoors more... I really like the latest pear! It's a great poem on the back too... may try that--you certainly gave great directions! I am catching up on reading blogs... been out of town, then family crisis, and one sick person in the house... too much, too much! Big Hugs!

I need to get some of that product...thanks for sharing.

20 pounds for me too put on during the winter.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for the tip about the bangs. I have been trimming Avery's front bangs (not an appropriate word for a little boy, but don't know what else to call them), for a few months now. I know the big hair cut is coming. I cannot stand to think about it. In the mean time, I will use this technique. He moves and squirms so much that cutting his hair is traumatic. So afraid i will make the wrong cut that will be with him for a while.
I'll let you know how it works out this week.

Thanks for the information Marly .
I think many of us put weight on over the Winter.
The sun comes out and nothing fits ! I now keep a few larger sizes of cloths until I am back to my own size after a bit of gardening.

Thanks for the tip on the anti-slip stuff - I could use that!
