I see your lips moving …

You are at your 40th high school reunion and are able to see your old classmates talking about the fun times of those years gone by. Occasional laughter and smiles are evidence that they are communicating with those around them, but you hear garbled voices. Back then the hearing and eyesight were as keen as a hawk, although that may be somewhat of an exaggeration, but things don’t work as well after these many years. Have you ever considered a hearing aid? You may have had glasses for a long time to enhance the sense of sight; now it is time to clarify your hearing. Today’s modern hearing aids can be cosmetically appealing and will restore the clarity of voices, concerts, and other important events. With the aid of modern technological advances, some youthful characteristics can be restored to their prior strength and capabilities.

Personalized Baby Shower Gift

Finding the perfect baby shower gift can be frustrating at times. That’s why I decided to make a personalized gift for my friend instead. I also wanted to give Kathy something special to use after her baby is born, as a sort of pampering gift for her rather than something for the baby.

I chose to make a personalized wine glass by using glass transfers and a beautiful bottle green wine glass I found at a yard sale.

I found some transfers of vintage images featuring mothers holding babies, bluebirds and daisies which I used to decorate the glass. I also used a glass paint pen to write the mother’s name around the top of the glass in calligraphy.

It turned out beautifully, and she was very pleased with her personalized gift, which she assured me she will be happily using as soon as she can drink wine again.

Perfect Windows

Renovating isn’t easy. The only thing that is more stressful than renovating is moving. It ha been nearly a year, but we are almost done. All that is left to do is the window dressings. Finding the right amount to cover every window in my house wasn’t easy. Every time I found something I liked, they did have enough for all the windows. If, the store had the number of window covers, I needed, I didn’t like them, or they didn’t have the right sizes for all the windows.

Last week, I finally found the window shutters Manchester that I wanted. They are the right size and there enough to cover every window in my house. I am so happy. I am finally done all the renovations in the house. The chaos is over, and my family can go back to normal. I can finally relax after a year of stress.

Selling Off The Memories

We’re having a garage sale this week, and I’m sure you know what that’s like. It’s time to put a discount dollar figure on priceless items from our families history. I’m not a big “things” person and prefer less clutter, so I actually don’t mind seeing all this stuff being out of the way. There was an odd moment when we were going through everything, as my wife found some old NCR pads from her last job and was a little too attached to them. That’s if you ask me of course. I’m not that big a fan of work, so I can’t imagine having an emotional connection to some random item from a former workplace, let alone an item you’ve let sit in a garage for a few years. There she was doing just that though. I could tell it meant a lot to her, so I let it go.

Day Of Endless Errands

I always dread running errands because I know they will take up a lot of my time. Today, I had so many errands to run that I did not think I would ever get finished with all of them. First, I had to go to the bank to deposit some money. After that, I had to pick up my husband’s suit from the cleaners. I grabbed a quick lunch and then went shopping. I had to buy some groceries, hydrated lime and cleaning supplies.

After I went to the grocery store, I had to pick my daughter up from school and take her to dance class. We went home after she finished dance class. When I was home, I did not get a chance to sit down because I had to prepare dinner. Needless to say, I was relieved when this day was finally over.
