Do You Know The Difference Between Feather Pillows+Down Pillows? Let Me Tell You A Little Story...

This morning, I was awakened by a little white feather tickling my nose. I got up and starting noticing that room by room I was seeing more of these pesky little white feathers. I discovered that my daughter was sleeping on the couch and lough and behold, her hair was full of little white feathers.
As I started down the dark hallway to turn off the heat, I felt something, lots of somethings actually, swirling and tickling around my ankles and calves. I turned on the hall light to discover a lovely mist of those little white feathers floating around me.
Just then the heat cut on, (the return air is at the end of this hall),and what was an 18 inch drift of those little white feathers in front of the return air became a flowing pea soup fog enveloping me.
Please keep in mind, I've been awake for all of 90 seconds at this point and my nicotine deprived brain is seriously wondering if this is all some strange dream caused by the fun size pack of skittles I had right before I dozed off last night.
Apparently, my children, in their Halloween candy sugar rush, decided that it would be a great idea to have a pillow fight with my daughter's down pillows. Mind you, this was after John and I were already in bed and asleep and they were supposed to be too.
I must say, I can clearly see the difference between regular feather pillows and 90 % down pillows. The feathers vacuum up just fine. The down turns into an absolute, lighter than air swirling blizzard with zero visibility when you try to vacuum it. The feathers stay in the garbage bag when you empty the vacuum canister, the down erupts like Mt. Vesuvius when you TRY to put it in the garbage bag. The feathers stick to my hair and clothes, the down will fit up my nose. Yes, I am quite a site to see, thank goodness they're isn't anyone here with a camera to take a picture of me...

I've spent 4 hours so far trying to clean up those little white feathers, not sure how many more it will take. I do know that my back yard looks like it's snowing. It's quite windy hear today and that is the only place I can empty the feather's out of my vac's cannister. I wonder what the neighbors think...

Chocolate Ice Water Cake

Chocolate Ice Water Cake

3/4 cup butter
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
3 squares unsweetened dark chocolate, melted (I use the Nestle ChocoBake premelted chocolate)
3 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons soda
3/4 teaspoon salt (if using unsalted butter, use 3/4 tsp., otherwise, use 1/2 tsp. if butter is salted)
1 1/2 cups ice water

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate; blend well. Sift together dry ingredients and add alternately with the ice water. Pour into three 9-inch layer cake pans. I always did mine in square pans, though, for selling. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool 5 to 10 minutes and remove from pans. Cool thoroughly before frosting.

Sour Cream Velvet Frosting (Fudge Like)

1 c. (6 oz.) package NestlĂ©’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (I use dark chocolate AND semi-sweet)
1/2 c. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/3 c. sifted confectioners’ sugar

Melt over hot (not boiling) water NestlĂ©’s Semi-Sweet chocolate morsels. Remove from water. Blend in sour cream, vanilla and salt. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar.

Fills and frosts two 8- or 9-inch layers, and should end up as a fudge like consistency on the cake. Delicious!

Ebay

Good morning all!  Since we are going to be moving in about 3 weeks, I decided to clear out some clutter and give Ebay a try.  I have listed about $350 worth of items in the past week and so far have sold a little over $100 worth.  Not bad when you consider it's just items lying around my house collecting dust, lol!  Here's a link to my current items up for auction: Ebay if you would like to take a look.  I'm not trying to sell you guys anything, just wanted you to see that I really am new to Ebay and what I've sold.  You probably have a ton of stuff around your house to de-clutter too, so why not give it a try!
It has been really easy to sell on Ebay.  They have wonderful step by step guides for setting up your account and selling.  You can print your shipping labels and packing slips right from Ebay and even arrange for free pickup at your door of your packages right from your selling page, you don't even have to leave the house to mail the packages, I like that!
After we move to our new house, I'm going to go to yard sales and thrift stores to look for more items to resell on Ebay, who couldn't use an extra $100 a week in their pocket?
Yes, Ebay does have an affiliate program!  If you own your own website, you should take advantage of their program.  You can check out their program rules here.
More about affiliate programs in my next post!
