Wire Heart Pendant with Moonstone drop

Tiny and Sweet.. this pendant makes a big statement in a tiny package. Nestled lovingly around your neck, it would look great for a special occasion, or everyday wear. Solid Copper that will not tarnish. Sweet pretty seed beads in an array of tones.. silver, white, dark slate blue, clear.. and a pretty little moonstone brio dropped at the bottom. Amore!

Look what I got in the mail! Pantene Ultimate 10 in 1 Bzz Kit

Look what I got in the mail! Pantene Ultimate 10 in 1 Bzz Kit. Haven't heard of Bzz yet?? You should head over and sign up.. you have the opportunity to bzzz products.. try them and then spread the word. I personally love trying new products.. I love being some of the first to see how wonderful new things on the market work. I also love sharing this with my friends.
I am a Pantene lover to begin with.. it really does make my hair feel wonderful. I have long hair and a lot of products leave it feeling like straw. Pantene always leaves it silky and smooth. I get compliments all the time on my hair. So that says a lot.. when a stranger comes up to you in a store and says, "you have such beautiful hair" always embarrasses me a bit lol.
Anyways I was excited when the mailman delivered my Bzz kit today. I opened it up and snapped a pic right away. He was very early so I hadn't had my shower yet.. perfect timing! I was very pleased with how my hair felt and looked after using the shampoo, conditioner and 10in1 treatment.
If it feels this good after one use.. how will it feel after 10!?!
Always nice to get something in the mail besides bill.. great start to the day!

Things I find while shopping!

Having a sense of humour makes life a lot more interesting! I can find humour in the most unusual places... but shopping.. well, always be on the look out!

Here is a few of what I have found and noted in the past. I admit some of them are a lack of translation (I think.. I hope!) but they do make you snicker.

Hygienic, Flavourful & Tasty... Mmmm

Gun Powder Tea.. wake up with a bang!

Not sure what to say about this one... 

Fungus wood ear???? huh?

Might need some of this after the last few!

Seen at the local thrift store.. bored husband perhaps?

My kind of pricing!

So, as I tell my kids.. slow down, look around.. you will be amazed what you will see!

Today was the worst day of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!! How many times have I heard that from my children!? There were days when I was with them, all day.. and I saw them playing and laughing and having lots of fun.. and one thing happened.. ONE and "IT is the worst day of my life" was what I would hear.  Is it drama, over doing it.. or did that one thing overshadow everything else from the day? I am a firm believer that most of us need to learn the "glass half full instead of half empty".. I don't think that outlook is born into everyone.. Maybe not even most of us. So how do we talk to our kids so that we can let them know the bad stuff doesn't have to ruin the day.. to focus on all the good that happened instead of the bad?
When my oldest was in early elementary, grade 1 or 2, I decided that I would try and refocus all of us. We decided we would tell something funny that happened that day. The twins were too little to participate.. but I made sure I always had something funny and interesting to tell her that happened to me during the day, or that I saw. It really helped our dialogue and I think it really helped her to pay attention throughout the day to the good things.. or funny, so she could share it with me on the way home from school. Those giggles we had after a long day sure helped. We still talked about the bad things that happened, but after having a laugh we were able to focus more realistically on where those bad things figured into her day.

Last Day of Summer Break

Today was the last day of freedom for the kidlets... We had to get a few more things on their supply list, and then we were determined to do something fun. They were pretty darn patient as we ran from store to store. In between markers and thesaurus's we went into a grocery store and I asked for some fish trimmings... we bought three bags for $1 each.  We went and had ice cream and a little walk through an old cemetery.. the kids found some interesting things there,
Acorn hats.. each came home with a pocketful of acorns to plant.

There was a large wasp nest that had fallen from a tree.. There were no wasps around, but the paper was fascinating to the girls. It really is remarkable that what they do with some chewed up wood.

This gorgeous old tree's roots were growing around thise cobblestones.. I found it kind of cool

Someone painted this little rock and left it on a grave..

Then we went to feed the seals.. They are such hams.

As we were leaving, it started to rain. The girls were talking about how much fun they'd had on the way to the car..  love that :)
