I see a squirrel, a rabbit, an elephant, two birds, a snake, a raccoon, a piece of antler, and a Nylabone. Some women decorate their homes according to a specific style or period.

I've posted before that one of my goals was to use up all my handsoap, I had reached the end of my BBW stash of handsoap and recieved 1 more as a teacher gift in June. I opened it at the kitchen sink. I almost caved on friday to buy more handsoap with their buy 7 deal. I was online and went into pumpkin coma I love those fall scents, telling myself their was a 10 0ff and free ship deal too. So how could I go wrong? Common Sense prevailed and I remembered how long I've... Continue Reading

 

Re: HEP (Healthy Eating Program) – August 2014

I need to find a new grocery store. Do I have to start shopping at Whole Foods? I just want a store that sells food. Edible food. I don't need patio furniture, cosmetics, school supplies, kitchen appliances, movies, or prescriptions. Just food. Real produce. Bread that doesn't smell or taste stale. I'm seriously considering giving up on them all. I can buy meat from the local butcher, bread from a local bakery (if I can find a good one around here), and produce from a produce market or farmers' market. I can get most of the paper products and staples (olive oil, canned goods) at the wa... Continue Reading

If you ever change your mind about athletic shoes, try New Balance. Exquisitely comfortable. I work in Alegrias. So many different styles, but I really like the clogs. I'm a nurse -- I can't imagine wearing anything else on my feet. http://www.alegriashoeshop.com/category-s/166.htm Continue Reading

 

Re: Anyone Have Tips for Packing "Care Packages" for College Student?

In Viewpoints 1408454167.257

When I was in college (late 70s - early 80s) my parents' care package was always unexpected, but so special that I'll always think about it and smile. Even the guy behind the counter at the Post Office knew what was inside that box. Out of the blue, I'd get that piece of paper telling me I had a package to pick up. No matter what was going on, this package made everything better. My parents would send me a box of strawberry creams from See's Candies. I want so badly to taste one of these again, but the company has discontinued them. So all I have is the wonderful memory. Find something rea... Continue Reading

On 8/12/2014 rnmom said: Some areas will be a piece of cake, others will be much more time consuming and might not get finished, but I like the inspiration to get moving. If I read about it, or watch Hoarders or something on TV it inspires me to get up and do something, even if it's just something little like clear one drawer or shelf. I figure anything is better than nothing, as decluttering is a never-ending, ongoing process. No truer words! You're right -- I think we feel better if we do something every day. Doesn't have to be huge, but it makes a difference. Continue Reading

Yesterday I noticed that Seattle was 93 and Albuquerque was 85 -- with rain. An unusual set of events. And we've been enjoying every second! Forgive me! Continue Reading
