The 30 Day Photo Challenge is hosted by Angie @ Blessed Beyond Words!
How It Works: (From Angie’s Blog) “For 30 days – each day in April – I will post a subject. You take the photo, upload it to your blog, and leave a link to your post/photo in that day’s linky here on Blessed Beyond Words.”
Today’s Challenge: Free Choice
This is my bit of earth. Yes, it’s not exactly in the ground but it’s the best I can do with what I have to work with.
I love my little porch garden and dream of the possibilities of what I could do with my own yard! I plan on getting more vegetables to grow soon in those empty pots in the left of my photo. I also plan on planting herbs in an awning box or two!
If you would like to participate, link up your photo or blog post HERE.

Previous to the Norelco, I had a plug-in ConAir clippers. They cut my hair fine, but the cord was a bit of a bother. I’d normally have to use an extension cord to be able to use it where I would make the least amount of mess. The case it all came in wasn’t all that huge, but it contained a myriad of attachments and finding the right one was a bother. Cleaning the inside of the clippers was a real chore and took far longer than it should. You had to remove the blades to do it. Enter the Norelco.
First thing I noticed was the size. It’s much more compact than my previous clippers. It plugs in to charge, so when I used it, I didn’t have to worry about the cable limiting me or getting in my way.
There are also only a total of 6 attachments, and all are small. There are two sized (width) of clippers, and one adjustable sizing attachment for each. No more digging around for that #2. The clippers and guides work together in harmony, with a pair of designators on the clippers that align with the guides so it’s very easy to see what setting it is on.
The clippers are also super easy to clean. You just take them off and can blow them out and use the included brush to remove the hair waste material. The brush has two different sides that reach and clean all the various bits you might want to clean.
There’s also a nose hair clipper attachment, and a mini shaver. I suggest keeping the latter on when you store the Norelco and attachments in the handy bag. If somehow the clipper gets turned on, it’s least likely to cause any damage. You should keep at least one attachment on to keep the Norelco clean and to keep the moving part grease on the moving parts from getting all over stuff.
The Norelco is a dream. There’s less bits to mess around with, and the bits there are all work fantastically. I cut my hair and beard in no time with none of the fuss of my previous clippers. I adore it.
