CHRISTMAS GREETING!

IN THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!

I'll admit my zeal for

Christmas decorating

had waned. My sons

had moved out and I

have no grandchildren.

I was shopping on Black

Friday a  few years ago. I saw a 6 ft lighted Christmas tree marked

down to $7.00. I thought this must be a mistake! This was an offer I couldn't

refuse. I rushed to the 

register with last marked 

down tree.  I got home with my tree and realized 

that I had no ornaments to go on this tree. I had donated all of them to a 

Thrift Store.
My recent Christmas 

decorations were a wreath 

on my doors.

I have a tip for Empty 

Nesters and Seniors  living alone. Decorate a tree for your own pleasure. I could afford to splurge  on Christmas since I'm retired and my children
were grown and gone!!  I could spend 

HANDSOME DUO!

I have learned to enjoy new types of music as I have gotten older. In my younger days, I enjoyed R&B and contemporary jazz music.  In later years, I listened to mostly Gospel music.

I used to be a faithful Oprah Show watcher. She featured Andrea Bocelli on one of her Christmas shows. He only sang for a few minutes but I was blown away by his amazing voice. I had never listened to opera or understood the  Italian 
language.  I immediately went to the music store 
and bought Sacred Arias.
I played this CD several times a day. I have
bought other CD's by him since that time.  Sacred Arias is still my favorite 
and it still gives me goosebumps.

I saw Andrea Bocelli's interview with Gayle King
last week. Andrea and his son Matteo sang their new
song, Fall on Me. This was definitely a "Wow"
moment! I'll be online this week looking to see if their is CD available.

The fall season is here.
I know I'll have to do something soon with this huge planter full of snake plants. Snake plants are tropical plants and can't tolerate winter frost.

I did keep some snake plants in my greenhouse one year.They were doing ok until the nighttime temp dropped to 20 degrees! They looked like green wet noodles! 

I had some snake plant cuttings in shallow containers under my 
white bench. Well, I was 
so wrong! The containers were hit 
by strong wind gusts. 
I found them flipped upside down, in the middle of my porch. This mess stained my beige print outdoor rug.  I scooped up the mess and placed it in a grocery bag. 




placed it behind my outdoor furniture.  
I planned to throw the
whole mess out later. This week I was sweeping my porch. 
I found the forgotten bag full of cuttings. I decided
to open up the bag. I was  expecting to see wet soggy cuttings. To my surprise,
the cuttings had survived.  They had plenty of tiny roots on them!

I retired from banking industry 6 years ago. I have enjoy having time to rummage in thrift stores. I also have time to visit dollar and discount stores during the week when most people are at work.  Some of the discount stores have closeout

products and clothes they obtained from  expensive department stores.  The brand  name tags have been cut or they have a  black mark on them.  Those fantastic  bargains are out there waiting for me.  I hope the information I shared below 

is helpful for bargain hunters.


I have been using a fantastic antiseptic oil for the skin for the last 5 years. This

oil is called melaleuca or tea tree

oil. I use it when I get insect bites and 

acne.  I have also seen it added to 

shampoo and toothpaste. Pure tea tree

oil is strong and a little bit goes a 

long way. I used to
