I am a Veteran of the Viet Nam Era. When I see Old Glory my heart skips a beat. When I hear people speaking of “her” with respect and honor I know what I did is paying off. Of course, we have leaders who don’t seem to share this loyalty, but it’s the people who really matter.
As I’ve been looking for Mother’s Day gifts this year, I found a lot of the “same old stuff”, but when it came to unique festive nesting for mom, I found a pleasant little website that sells a beautiful stone that is given as a symbol of appreciation. It’s not expensive and it comes straight from the heart!
Kids electric scooters come in a variety of shapes and sizes and depending on several factors, including age of rider, size of rider, maturity level of rider will play a major role in deciding which electrical scooter is appropriate for your child.
A Maid For A Day. Wouldn’t it be great to go out for the day and come home to a sparkling clean home? I have long harbored a secret wish for the ‘maid fairy’ to come to my house and do all those things that I never seem to find the time to do. The ice-box defrosted? Done. Those dusty baseboards? Cleaned. Imagine returning home to find all my ornaments cleaned and shining. Now that would would be heavenly. If hiring a maid for a day is more than your budget will allow, how about getting together with other family members, sending your mom away for the day (perhaps combined with idea number 2), and doing it yourselves?
The fiber content and care of the yarn can be harder to match, and yet they’re both important to the success of your project. For example, some fibers absorb water better than others. If you’re making a winter hat, combining a yarn made of cotton (which is very absorbent) with one of wool (which isn’t) may not be a good idea. The cotton will absorb the water from melted snow, getting heavier and colder – which won’t help the person wearing the hat stay warm. On the other hand, a hat made of wool and silk, or wool and mohair, will stay warm for a long time.
Did I bail them out? Probably. Do I regret opening ‘Mom’s Christmas Outlet Store? Absolutely handmade gifts not! My children are very giving oriented. They will happily barter their services for the pleasure of giving a gift that they can be proud of which came from the sweat of their brow and the love in their heart! And besides, if not for ‘Mom’s Christmas Outlet Store’ I would not have gotten to be thoroughly entertained with my teenagers ‘dog and pony show’ last Christmas and probably many more to come!
Sending Thank You cards gives people warm fuzzies. They have good feelings about you. They may have bad feelings about you, but a card will make them reconsider. Maybe not change their mind, but understand I said “reconsider”. And brownies, well, what do you think that would do?
