Advent Calendar shopping on a Monday

October 23, 2017

It is such a blasé Monday because I just came back from my 20th reunion in my hometown with family and friends and Monday is hitting me so hard.  When this happens I try to add a little excitement to my life to make me feel better, so today it’s all about advent calendars for […]

A personal heater, vegan gummy bears and other things that have arrived in the mail lately

March 6, 2017

As a blogger, and an avid online shopper, there are many lovely things that arrive in my mail every week and it’s always exciting to see what might turn up next.  I’m so amazed when mail gets delivered, even in the snow!  Last week we were away in Amsterdam (I have some sneak-peeks on Instagram) and I’ll […]

Random Acts of Kindness and good on a Monday

September 27, 2016

Yes, it’s dreary-o-clock somewhere this Monday morning and judging by my Facebook feed full of horrific random shootings in places I’ve been to and unsettling political rants, it might feel a lot like the world might be coming to an end. But why would I want to contribute to the PR of gloom and doom? […]

Looking for easy meals on a Monday

September 20, 2016

How is it Monday again, already?  Did your weekend fly by in a blur?  With all the soccer games and parties and adventures sometimes Monday just hits me like those anvils that would flatten Tom in the old Tom and Jerry cartoons.
