Where to get heat shrink supplies

One of the things that I thought was quite fun about the last year that I worked at the telephone company was using heat shrink on some of the wires to the equipment we installed. I wondered where the average consumer might be able to buy heat shrink supplies if they were so inclined to want some. I kept thinking that heat shrink could be used in a variety of ways if one just put their creative thinking cap on. But I had no idea where one would even start looking from here to find a source for the supplies! I just found a website that sells heat shrink supplies, and I’m going to check it out and see if I can come up with some unique and creative ideas for the stuff – I think it is fascinating stuff!

Gang of Rabbits

There is a gang of rabbits in our neighborhood. Evidently the few that were here in the spring were very fertile. We have dozens of these little critters hopping around the yards at night. Most of the rabbits seem to come out from hiding just as the sun is going down.

They hop away so fast there is no hope of counting them, but I know that last night there were at least 7 or 8 in my front yard alone. That’s a lot of rabbits!



Today I saw a commercial for Chiquita bananas. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a commercial for bananas before! It was such a surprise to see a banana commercial that I don’t even remember what they were saying except that Chiquita bananas are shipped quickly so that we get the freshest bananas. And at the end they were advertising a new Chiquita product, fresh pineapple spears packaged individually for a healthy fresh snack.

We just returned home from our wonderful trip up to Michigan. We had a great time. The weather was wonderful (you never know what to expect in Michigan). Everything was great I could have stayed there another month. One great thing that came of this vacation was realizing how much I missed my free time. I never realized it until I had some during this vacation. After some long thought I went into my job today and gave my notice.

I know it sounds like a rash decision but it has been on my mind for a while now. In between working two jobs and keeping up with the house I had no free time whatsoever. I think I just got to a point where the money wasn’t all that important anymore. My next adventure is going to be getting back into shape. Now I have no excuse for not working out and taking care of myself.

I had the chance to talk to my sister this past weekend. I love when I hear from her because it seems like too often a month will pass and neither one of us had an opportunity to talk to each other. She lives out of state and our lives are so busy that time goes by and you realize it’s been months! I know people always say slow down and enjoy your lives. Time moves so fast and before you know it your 70 or 80 years-old. It’s such a nice thought to be able to stop and enjoy the time we have with sisters and friends. I think I talked to her for over an hour. We had a lot of catching up to do! I love those moments that I have with my sister.
