Aromatherapy Giveaway

Friday, June 15th, 2012

Greetings and happy Father’s Day weekend all, hope you have something relaxing  planned with a special dad in your life!  We’re headed to the east coast for a week to spend some time with family for a few days, and I’m also gearing up for a presentation in Atlanta at the Haven Conference, can’t wait to meet all of the attendees!

This weekend’s giveaway is brought to you by PC Fallon and their line of Archipelago bath and body products and home fragrances too.  I’ve been a fan of these products for years, they are clean and pure, never cloying like some other fragrance lines can be.  Archipelago Botanicals are made in the USA with the purest ingredients and essential oils.  My favorite scents are the lavender soaps and linen spray, the milk body lotion, and the Savannah candle (jasmine and gardenia, yum.)

Archipelago Botanicals makes body lotions, soaps, hand creams, shampoos and conditioners in lavender, milk, or mint to name a few, and also home fragrance candles and diffusers in both subtle and exotic scents.

A Troublesome Cat and a Great Vacuum

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Hello everyone and happy weekend to you!  We have plans to do some gardening and attend a friend’s wedding, the weather should be perfect!  But first, please allow me to share a recent phenomenon in our household and then tell you how we deal with it.

Our youngest member of the family is Coco the kitten and she is very mischievous and her latest fascination is with toilet paper.  Is this a common thing with cats?  I don’t know, but it never fails when friends come over, she engages in her latest wily maneuver which is a full blown attack on a roll of toilet paper.  We laugh, but I haven’t been able to keep the stuff on the holders or nicely stacked in baskets for weeks for fear of inevitable destruction.

Charmin is like catnip and it sends Coco into a tizzy and it’s typical for her to drag a roll across the house, bat it around like a mouse, and then attack it with frenzied claws.  When caught, she always has this look on her face.

Hold that image in your head while I fill you in on our vacuum situation.  The vacuum we’ve had for ten years is great, but it’s a beast – not a fun one to work with for the sole reason it weighs a ton and hurts my back to lift it.  Since we have a lot of carpet upstairs and several area rugs downstairs, I confess I procrastinate in my vacuuming duties and always ask Matt if he can help me with the chore.  One time it literally ate the edge of an area rug and I’ve been bitter ever since.
