Clear Skin

Wow, I'm a week away from 49 and my skin is suddenly perfect! What can I attribute this miracle to? Good old fashioned ProActiv. I should have tried it years ago, but I somehow thought is would be too harsh for my sensitive skin. I listened to a gal on YouTube talk about her skin care routine, and she recommended ProActive, in fact said she'd been using it for years...and so I picked some up to give a try. My skin was clear in three days, and it's now been a week and a half. Perfect skin! I can't stop touching it - which could be cause for more breakouts, so I should probably curb that impulse. I could do a commercial:-)

Book Love

These are photos of the most beautiful rooms in peoples me. Oh, if I could expand any room in my own house, it would be my library.

and I quote...

"You get a lot more done when you get up early" this revelation came from Mano, who has discovered this gem after 53 years of life on earth.

"What do I know." Auntie Y - this is uttered as a Shakespearian aside in the midst of many a discussion - it is not a question.

"I didn't know what was going on." This is the funniest to me...all of these are subtle so will only be funny to those that know them best - this is what Timmy remarked to Sarra after coming home to say that he found some fun things at the store that he thought the kids would enjoy. When asked why he didn't pick them up, he gave this line. What it meant was that Sarra wasn't there - Tim doesn't really buy anything much other than formula and such, so he was in unfamiliar territory. Mark could teach him a thing or two.

The most famous in our family, and about 1 year old now is this one:

"Well, I like you, but I didn't learn about you." Charlie in response to my question of whether he had learned about grammies in Primary class. He didn't want to hurt my feelings.

A Sewing Room

My sewing area is actually pretty nice, it's upstairs where I have a beautiful view, and I have lots of shelving and table space... so I can't complain, but this room is just so lovely! Maybe instead of sewing, I should decorate my sewing room? See more at

A Hot Summer Day

It' s hot outside, with a very light breeze...couldn't be better weather. Unbeleivably we haven't had any mosquitos this year. We have had instead, some very funky weather though - funky enough that we have stocked up on kerosene fuel, flashlights and water!
Did anyone watch the finale of SYTYCD? My favorite did not win, but my second did, I was for the girls all the favorite being Kayla. Jeanine won though, and she is really nearly as perfect for me, so no matter. I was not a fan of either of the boys. It was a really terrific finale with redos of some of the best routines of the season. Fortunately for us, the Canadian version starts next week:-)
