When Sipping Wine Leads to Sowing a (Seed)

Do you suppose it’s bad that I love how a company managed to connect wine with an idea for a line of healthy body care products? No?  Well, me either! In fact, I call it genius! That is exactly what the folks at Seed did when they wanted to created a line of products that would have […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 6

Are you still with me on the challenge I started to improve my blog?  This was a more in depth day of homework so it took a while to really give it the attention I wanted to. The assignment was in two parts:First we needed to learn from successful bloggers.  There are many, but I visited […]

Wordless Wednesday – Free Range Chickens!

Don’t they look so happy and healthy?!

Surf Sweets Product Review and Giveaway!

One of my son’s (and secretly mine) favorite “treats” is gummy bears, but I refuse to buy them since they are loaded with crap.  Sorry, but I can’t put that any more kindly.  It’s true.  For the most part, you find sugar, corn syrup, artificial flavors and artificial dyes in gummy bears.  Yick, yuck, gross.  […]

Meatless Monday

Wow! It’s Monday again already and that means I like to promote a meatless one for everyone.  You may already know that I am a vegetarian so every day is meatless for me, but I understand that not everyone can live without their meat.  My hope is that at least this one day a week, […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 5

I am back at it again with my blog “Spring Cleaning”(I like the name Mariana chose for this challenge that’s based on Problogger’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog.)  Today’s assignment is to email a blog reader.  That is easy enough. I have started to do something similar in that I visit the blogs of […]

Pack a Healthy Lunchbox That’s Waste-Free Too!

Have you ever been in a school cafeteria during lunchtime?  I have and some of what I have seen really bothers and worries me.  The food available to the kids isn’t the greatest(at least not what I would want to feed my children).  Some of the choices simply shouldn’t be there(such as fried foods or […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 4

Wow, I am behind on this challenge.  In a way, it is for a good reason.  I have been busy with other blog-related work, plus a little something for another site so this “spring cleaning” is a priority, but hasn’t been getting the attention it deserves.  I just can’t say enough how pleased I am that Mariana […]

National Napping Day/Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector Giveaway!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a “National Napping Day” and if you knew and didn’t tell me, I am so crushed and disappointed in you right now.  I will get over it, though, because I am all filled with excitement about the chance to have an excuse to take a […]
