Keeping it cool.

I need to drink water but it gets so boring and keeping the water cold is a task.
Here are some commercial ideas.


Music notes

Frozen Science


And here are two ideas I used last week.

H2O anyone?

For years I’ve had to take medication for a dead thyroid right at the crack of dawn.
I was very happy with my big 12 ounce glass with lid until DizzyIzzy my 85 pound Bouvier des Flandres decided to take matters in her thirsty paws and knock it off the bed side table.
I then started using a plastic cup with a straw. However we are experiencing the worst ant invasion in many years and I woke up one morning to many ants taking a dip in my cup.

At a recent shopping trip to Target I found this

With the cup taken off.

My love for Matrushka dolls dates back to my parents having one and when I was little I played with it and my Girl shares the same fondness.
So far I’ve used it for over 2 weeks and no swimming ants.

Here are a few more hydrating ways.

Poor snowman!

Love this one and might have to get it soon.

Happy Monday!

This is cute enough for me to want to buy it, you could use it for jewelry too.

Talk about being in a hot spot!

If you ever wanted to join the circus as a knife thrower here is your daily practice.

I guess this is for those days when it’s too hot to lick your ice cream cone.

Not sure if it’s cute or ugly, but I guess if you like rabbits this is right up your alley.

Gadgets for Wednesday


Himself bought new pans a few years ago and although they are lovely and stainless steel the handles get bloody hot! 

I’m seriously thinking of buying these to save my hands!




This is just cute.


I can see someone with a rubber duck collection liking that.

Some days I feel like this before coffee, so this espresso maker fits right in!

Why a square egg makes sense, who knows. Maybe for the more OCD crowd?


Gadgets for the nerd in you (or someone else)

Mix a drink after a hard day at the lab!

For those of us who remember records!I’d cringe every time I’d put a drink on it.

Ps, today the blog powers to be would not let me properly caption the middle 2 pictures so here goes:
Lego Utensils for the kid in you, fully stackable.

When we were in Japan Town I bumped into a rack full of amazing gadgets.
The store would not let me take pictures but I took the name and googled them.
This company is brilliant!
Their name is Fred and Friends and they have some of the funniest gadgets.
Hope it brightens up your Monday!


Tuesday Gadgets

A few weeks ago my friend Emi and I wandered around downtown and found a kitchen store.
Dangerous territory for me!
Amid the usual kitchen goods we found this rack full of silly yet functional kitchen gadgets.


It’s a kid’s plate and the compartments move.

Measuring cups.

Meat tenderizer in the shape of a boxer.

Her dress is the cheese grater, I might have to go back and get it.
