My maiden voyage into the social media circuit. I have sat and have thought… over thought… and then I thought some-more… what, oh what, do I have to say?
Well, lots and lots of very valuable stuff, I tell ya. That, of course, was prior to its creation – “Mama says what?” I firmly believe(d) the world needed to hear my tidbits.
Mama says what… for real, I guess, cause this Mama can’t think of anything… Now I have opportunity and nothing is coming. I cannot tell you the countless short stories I have written and fine tuned in my head over these – my motherhood – years. Where are they now…
So here I am, in my kitchen, desperate to have a beginning, and yes, am going to take the easy route. Be kind, we all need a beginning.
Sheila’s monthly top five: In no particular order.
1. Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains Blend.
Why I love it: It is delicious. It is real easy to make. It offers more health benes than that of its rivals. (Truthfully, I love just about anything Trader Joe’s. His foods are affordable, not laden with junk, and delivered with an excellent sense of humor. Plus – they always have free samples, Yum!)
Why I love it: It feels great when you get enough and really lousy when you don’t. A recent visit to the doctors revealed the limited/little value that I was placing on proper sleep. I elected to give his advice a try… you know the ole’ – sleep regularly and routinely, eat right, and exercise advice. Blah, blah, blah… we have all heard it – many times. I guess my feeling funky, tired all the time, ache-ee business had reached its crescendo, time for a change. You know what, I feel better. Sleep is good.
3. Arm & Hammer Total 2 in 1 Dryer Cloths
Why I love it: The classic fresh scent makes me happy. Admittingly, always been a fool for a fresh smelling pile of warm laundry. This drier sheet offers a special kind of magic to my olfactories. Enjoy.
4. Biolage Detangling Solution
Why I love it: It saved my and my daughters life. No, but seriously, for those of you with daughters who have hair of any length – this product is worth every single cent it cost. It is a miracle. The holy grail of detanglers, if you will.
5. The Ellen Degeneres Show.
Why I love it: It ALWAYS makes me laugh. It is a freedom from reality loaded with music, laughter, and just-cause generosity. I sure wish I caught it everyday. I would argue it good for your soul. The segment where folks dance behind unsuspecting strangers is a killer. Try to catch it.
