i had a thought.....

people will forget what you said
people will forget what you did.
but people will never forget how
you made the feel.

The most under-rated holiday

thanksgiving is the most under-rated holiday
we think of cooking, eating, cleaning...
and sometimes we forget about the things
we are thankful for...
i am thankful for many things...

my family- who support and love me
my kids- who make all the struggles worth it
friends- who are always there for me
health- that keeps my body moving
job- that allows me to support my family
freedom- i have because others are willing to risk
their lives

i am sure i have forgotten several things
and will be back to update this post...

here is a song that reminds me....
what we've survived
what we've accomplished

In the last 10 years
by Kenny Rogers

I'm Mashed Potatoes

You Are Mashed Potatoes

Oridnary, comforting, and more than a little predictable
You're the glue that holds everyone together.

i approve !!!!

Henry Cavill is the actor that Stepanie Meyers would pick to play Edward in twilight only now he is too old (she says) and movie rights to twilight are still in negotiation.

i totally approve !

"daylight savings time ends"

this is what it says on my calendar
it doesn't mention the havoc it plays with
my internal clock.... i wake up earlier than
i need to and i want to go to bed earlier...
when my kids were little it use to really mess
up their schedules... they were cranky for a
couple of weeks until they're little bodies adjusted.
these days the only schedule it seems to mess up
is the old lady in the house (me) and my sister.

Edward (Twilight)

i believe most of you are aware that the twilight series
of books are my absolute favorite books of all time...
my sister who is an urban botanic consultant came
up with some scents for the characters of the book.

She made scents for....

Bella by Daylight
Bella by Moonlight

i liked them all but my two favorite are Edward
and Bella by Daylight
and when i smelled them i really did think of the
character.... i don't know how she does that....
she has come up with some amazing scents.
i will hopefully have the scents made by the end of
the week if you'd like to come by and smell them
give me a call :)

[P.S. You can read more about these fragrances at her Signature Scents blog. She will be posting a description of one a day over the next week. You can also order them online here.]

Too soon ???

i set my alarm clock on a corny radio station because it helps
me get out of bed quicker... the day after halloween i wake up
to... no other than frosty the snow man.... i had forgotten that
they start playing christmas on november 1st.... i have changed
the channel.... i generally don't start listening to christmas music
until the day after thanksgiving.... you know i like to follow the
rules... and the "socially acceptable" timing of the holidays....


ok- i am a big christmas fan.... in fact i am a fan of
all holidays... i like to celebrate them all... my favorite
is halloween followed closely by christmas....
however, i think there is a "socially acceptable"
time table for christmas.... in order to enjoy each holiday
you can't bring the next one on too soon....
for example..

october- you get to enjoy halloween for the entire month
you get to decorate, carve pumpkins, plan costumes,
go to haunted houses, corn mazes, parties, etc..

november- you get to enjoy fall, the look of the leaves, the
crispness in the air....then the big day you get to
cook all day for the dinner that takes a table of
men 15 minutes to devour...then the rest of the day
you spend cleaning dishes... not my favorite holiday
but after all the work is done you relax and pull out
the christmas ads and make your plans for the
day of shopping and where you will be standing in
line at 4:30am, which is a fair payoff for the day of
cooking and cleaning the day before....

december- after the day of shopping you can ring in the beginning of
christmas any day of your choosing.... remember if your going
to go thru all the trouble of decorating you should be able to
enjoy it for a month.... the lighting of the out door christmas lights
should begin no sooner than dec 1st and continue no later than
jan lst.....this turning on christmas lights until the middle of jan
are against the "holiday rules"

However, i am not the boss of the holidays.... so do whatever you want and enjoy :)
