I have always loved learning, and reading. I think I learn best when I am left to read the instructions and the execute the action. As I have aged I have learned that is more I do not know than do know and that excites me – it means I still have a ton to learn.

Animals are amazing, and dogs are even more so. There are stories upon stories that depict dogs traveling great distances and great lengths to get to their humans. Nothing says true love and devotion like a dog (and sometimes a cat).
When I saw this months Pet Treater and the theme “All You Need is Love and A Dog”, this fact was no more evident in those many stories that I read. I think that is really all you need in life – love and a dog! Continue reading →

Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – January 2017 Review
There is funny thing that happens, when the calendar switches over to the new year, it is almost as if the reset button has been hit. There is a general feeling that with the new year comes new opportunities to try something new, engage in a new hobby or changing entire habits.
While I have the best intentions each new year I have little ability to carry through with resolutions much longer than the first month of the year. The one thing that the new year can do is bring new opportunities and new surprises, which is my resolution for the new year.
One of the best surprises that I have discovered are monthly subscription boxes. Since the theme for the January Peaches and Petals boxes was “2017 Brings New Surprises” it seemed very timely and appropriate for my outlook on 2017. Each items are appropriate, and useful while constantly remaining in theme.

Pet Treater Monthly Subscription Box Review – January 2017
As far back as I can remember I have loved animals and have always had a imagination where animals are concerned.
When I was young I thought that animals had their own language and could communicate with each other cats and dogs. As I have gotten older I have realized they do have their own language – Love. This is a simple language that we all understand, but it is all animals know.
Since the days go by faster than the days before it is important during these days to remember our pets, and how the love you. When I saw this months Pet Treater and the theme “Cheers to Another “Dog” Gone Year”, was reminded to stop and speak my animals language as the years pass by. Continue reading →
Simply Earth: Essential Oil Recipe Box – Be Healthy – February 2017 – Review + Giveaway
As I get older, the less I want to put harmful chemicals in my body. The more that time passes the more I realize our natural immune systems can kick in and really do more than over the counter medicines can. When the natural immune systems needs help, many people turn to essential oils to give nature a boost.
Since I live in San Diego, the weather can be cold one day and warm the next, which wrecks havoc on the sinuses. During this time of sinus issues, over the counter remedies have unwanted side effects so essential oils are a nice alternative. A month ago I reviewed Simply Earth and their monthly subscription box, so when I saw this month’s was healthy focused I was again eager to try out some essential oil health remedies.
Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Cozy & Comfy” – January 2017 – Review + Giveaway
Early in our cat guardian life, we realized that our cats were going to miss out on sleeping on our beds at night. Due to the layout of our house, there is a clear path from our living room to the bedroom. If we keep the bedroom door open, they run and use our (Jason’s) legs to vault themselves ahead of each other.
Recently we have begun to let our girl cat, Maggee, in the room the last couple hours of the sleep cycle. Most days she hunkers down by my legs and falls asleep. The other day, we discovered that a soon as the humans sleep she explores the closet. We had set some water bottles on the edge of our elevated closet, and when we woke, one bottle was on the floor – not where we left it.
Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – December 2016 Review
Now that the holidays are wrapping up and a new year dawns, I am reflective of the year past. At the end of the year I try to summarize my accomplishments, note my failures and set new goals for the year ahead.
One of my goals in the coming year is to pay it forward. I find that simple actions of kindness are becoming less common. As time goes on and if we do not keep this movement going, then generations below us will lose that common kindness. So this coming year, I am going to share my good fortune and when I receive items in boxes I am not going to use and pay it forward.
Each month when I receive the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com I think of those moments of kindness that can be paid forward. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient.
