**** I woke up this morning to intense 100km/hr winds and Mya whining at me to take her to school. Non-stop. For an hour. I was about ready to sell her to the highest bidder. *wink* However, the power was out and there was no way I was stepping out... Continue reading

Thank-you! It is my planner, it's called "The Day Designer" and I LOVE IT!! I buy the mini as it fits on my desk so well! But there is a full size as well. If you're in Canada you can only purchase at Chapters, but if you're in the USA there are plenty of places to purcahse. Check out their website as you can see interior photos etc.. as well! It's not a cheap planner, but I highly recommend it! I've used it literally every single day since I purchased it! I have my new one ready & waiting already for 2018! LOL!!

Please cross your fingers, say a prayer, send out good vibes, pixie dust, unicorn hearts, whatever... Continue reading

First, thanks so much for your concern with my well being, emotionally & physically. I am feeling physically better, except I still have a crazy stubborn cough which is not only annoying, but impossible to sleep through. It gives me such a headache from the pressure of my cough. I...

Glad you're able to switch back to butter, you really can't compare the two! In our climate we need to use this little gadget or our butter is like a little brick! Lol!!
They are awesome and *really* work well!! Worth the $$!! We had one before we moved but I think we either donated it by mistake or lost it somehow... ?

It is finally into the colder fall weather here, and with that means "hard butter", which as most people know, is a pain. We only purchase butter here & it's unspreadable now. I hopped on Amazon this morning and found this pretty little "Butter Bell Crock" in a beautiful goldenrod... Continue reading

Thank-you! And yes, I agree... it's kind of strange that it's not a National holiday... it should be in my opinion. I plan on enjoying it!

That's exactly it, I was upset and Mya has a terrible track record with illnesses, I don't like to take a chance as she's went from 0-10 so quickly!
