A New Gift Idea

Posted in Toys on July 28th, 2015

It can be hard sometimes to find the perfect gifts for all of my friends and family. Sometimes I just want to give up and hand out gift cards when a birthday or holiday comes around. Now, though, I have a new option when I don’t know what to give. I have recently come across ceramic decals UK and all that they bring to the table, and I love the gift giving options that they open up.

I love giving gifts to my friends and family members, but it can be really hard to know just what I should give to who. I don’t always know what kind of gift will be appreciated and what is the right choice for each individual. I have a new gift giving option now, and that makes me really happy. I am excited to surprise my relatives with a new kind of gift.

A Magical Dog

Posted in Lifestyle on April 5th, 2015

A magical dog had ate some magical grass. It was just one piece but it seemed like a feast. The dog had powers that it could control. The dog could go from big to looking real old. It was odd the things this dog could do. It would even start singing out of the blue. It was unique and something to see except for when he would count to three. As I got older he didn’t care he would sit right there and just stare. I don’t know what he wants do you? The dog wants CCTV Bolton and a pop tart I thought. I was right he didn’t bark or whine all night. He was finally happy from stress. I was so happy because now I can get a good nights sleep.

How redecorating can save you money

Posted in Home Improvement on March 8th, 2015

Now that the kids are grown and moved out of the house, my hubby and I decided to redo our home and make life easier for ourselves. One of the first things we targeted was the window treatments by replacing our old curtains and drapes with Manchester shutters blinds. What a wonderful difference it made, and if we had not accomplished anything else, I would still be happy. Every woman knows that one of the biggest jobs in the house is taking down the curtains to wash, iron and rehang or hauling the drapes to the dry cleaner and then getting shell-shocked by the bill. The new blinds are fabulous. Not only do the rooms look bigger, but the shades are easy to clean and have lowered our electric bills by keeping out the heat in the summer and cold in the winter.

Yell Sweet Nothings in my Ear

Posted in Old Age on February 9th, 2015

Dating when you are past 70 can be hazardous. Lillian answered an personals ad in the Senior News.
Herb didn’t lie about looks, age, his financial status, or his interests. However, he didn’t mention that his hearing was shot. He was mad at his hearing aids which squawked at the most inconvenient times, like when the minister was praying. The devices became dresser ornaments.

Lillian lied about her age, weight,and neglected to mention Lennie, her adult son who has never left home. She didn’t have enough money from Social Security to go to a audiologist but maybe if this gentleman she was meeting was as flush as he claimed, he might eventually shell out the money for a hearing test. She would take him to her Wednesday Bunco Club where she would feel safe from any untoward advances.
The date started out badly. She met him at door of the mobile home club house wearing her best elastic waist pants and a matching top with embroidered autumn leaves on it.

Unique Landscape Design

Posted in Gardening on January 13th, 2015

Today, most homeowners understand the importance of proper landscaping. Not only will it benefit the home’s overall value with improved curb appeal but it will also create added function and personality for homeowners.

Flower beds and natural areas are excellent options for homeowners who want a unique form of landscaping. These areas can be installed professionally but are also easy to complete on their own. By installing various plants that the homeowner desires and watering properly, the area will be lush and appealing. However, homeowners must ensure there is a proper base to hold in moisture and fill up any spaces that are open.

Many homeowners will use mulch for their landscaping beds. This is a great option but there are homeowners who will choose a more durable and maintenance free option such as pea gravel. These mall pebbles look very appealing up against the landscaping elements and require no maintenance. With an affordable price, it is easy to see why it is becoming a popular choice in landscape design.

That Was Awkward

Posted in Relationships on November 13th, 2014

I’m a bit of an awkward person.

Last week I was staying in a nice hotel on South Beach, in Miami. One night I ventured to the pool. I swam, talked with a towel boy, tried not to watch a couple make out, and pondered whether or not I should really become a wedding makeup artist Manchester.

My hair still dripping a bit, I left the pool and made my way to the elevator. Of course I ended up riding alone with a really hot guy – I’m talking Edward Cullen hot – who was staying in the penthouse. You know that awkward silence when you’re in an elevator with a stranger? Yeah, I wasn’t having that. I broke the silence as proof of my awkwardness escaped through my lips.

“Crap, I’m dripping.” He looked at me strangely and responded.

“Pool?”

“Yeah.” And I walked out. I should have taken the stairs.

Old Garbage, New Life!

Posted in Property on November 11th, 2014

It was senior year and Sarah still had to fulfill her Art requirement. Painting seemed relatively interesting…that must be why it was full. Mixed-media it was.

The first day arrived. The class went by rather slowly and ended with an assignment to create a mythological being out of recycled or re-purposed materials. Sarah wondered where she would get any of that, she barely went out of her way to recycle a bottle.

That afternoon, she walked on the beach and collected sea glass like she always did. Sea glass! Couldn’t that be considered “re-purposed”? She picked up a piece and headed home to tap her collection. Some inspiration and just over an hour yielded something quite beautiful: a mermaid made of sea glass and twine. Recycled glass media became her trademark, and from that sprung a mission to re-purpose. Not only for her art, but for the environment too.
