Shiny Happy Moments

Thank you all for your commiserations yesterday. I did make it on that walk. Little sis and I went to the library where we stood on our tippy toes and picked out movies. Then we went to a cafe, sipped tea and people watched. It certainly helped to get out.

I am feeling much better. Here are some of today's shiny happy moments:

* Two girls with brushed hair.
* Two children sent to school with breakfast.
* A honey-face mask which set while doing dishes.
* One mother who showered and shaved and moisturized -- all natural and chemical free.
* Four days without shampoo.
* Homemade deodorant that appears to be working.
* A vigorous walk with other mothers during "baby ballet".
* Blooming paperwhites.
* Sunshine!


I am turning myself into an all-natural toiletry guinea pig and am, thus far, thrilled with the results. Stay tuned ... after a few more days of experimentation and I will tell you all about it! I can't wait for Frugal Friday!


I was tagged by Gayle at the Planet M Files for a sixth of the sixth meme. The rules are:

The rules are:

1) go to your photo folders,

2) post the 6th picture in the folder,

3) tell the story about the picture and then

4) tag 6 bloggers to do the same.

Well the question for me was which picture file? I have so many. I settled on my Flickr account. This is the sixth picture:

This photo was taken in November of 2006. It was the first snow of the season. I drove up to the mountain with my then almost three-year-old to take some shots. I wasn't totally prepared. The roads were rough and I probably should have had chains on. But we didn't get stuck and instead I ended up with this shot.

Now I'm going to cheat a bit and not tag anyone specifically. If you are reading this consider yourself tagged.


And, the song of the day, Shiny Happy People by REM ... only I can't find that on You Tube so instead I give you Furry Happy Monsters.

im so glad you're feeling better. i reread yesterdays post a couple of times and kept meaning to comment on it but children kept calling me away from the computer.

i can't wait for frugal friday! i had wanted to ask you about the no shampoo thing. you motivated me to give it a shot too! i really liked the site you linked too about it and i could totally relate to the authors hair type (super straight, tends to get greasy.) anyways, ive been doing it too and am also on day four and loving it so far. can't wait to hear more of your thoughts on it.
