Spa Day


This is a Spa Day Gift set that is headed it's way to Canada! It includes Soap, Salts, Essential Oils, Candles, and a Washing Mitt (not pictured).

I have one additional item to add to the package, but I'll give you more information on that tomorrow (because it's just not finished).

This was a busy weekend. Yesterday, I caught up with my dear friend, Ann, and her family. I just love spending time with her. I don't know how to describe her, except to say that she makes me smile and laugh at so many struggles that we, as mothers and women, struggle with. My kids are all adults, but her kids are still quite young. To spend time with her, her husband (what a great guy!), and her children (her daughter, Eva, is just simply delightful, and her son, Drew, such a little prince) is like taking my life and putting it in rewind, but adding in bright sunshine and posies.

Ann and I participated in an awareness, fund raising walk for brain cancer awareness, because of our friend, Jami, who unfortunately succumbed on Friday. After the walk, I went back to their house and was introduced to Wii Fit by Eva, who beat me running around the island and demonstrated several yoga poses to me.

Then Ann showed me some of Drew's and Eva's artwork that she framed. It is so amazing to look at art created by children and see their uninhibited, raw creativity!


Today was my husband's 50th birthday. His parents came over and we had rib-eye steak, rosemary and garlic potatoes, and salad. And since my old man is watching his weight (like he needs to!), we had Jack's special low fat, high fiber, muffins topped with cream cheese frosting for his birthday cake!

You're a great friend, Rebecca. What nice things you said about me and my family. I couldn't help bragging about what an amazing artist and creative bee you are to all who would listen. My big brained friend (yes, she is MY friend and I'm proud of it) made some great looking spa items. Did you burn the midnight oil on Saturday? The bran muffins looked yummy (I hope they do the trick, wink wink) and that Dave doesn't feel a day over 49! Let's do lunch and so I can return your camera AND socks. I'll wash them before I see you again -- promise. :-) I'm a big fan of the blog and I'm looking forward to Wednesday. Don't forget to send me the link!

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.
