I know many like to make Home Depot purchases online and then drive to the store to pick them up. You can still use my HOME DEPOT link to do that.
A special thank you to everyone who does this to offer your support of the blog!! It makes a difference and keeps me here.
I found it interesting that the Nordstrom article talked about shareholders and the company while the Land’s End article talked about the customers. Alison over at Wardrobe Oxygen talks about Nordstrom in her blog today.
I make a version of a tuna salad sandwich with chickpeas, a little simpler than this one. It’s economical, healthy and delicious. The vegan weight loss article made me put edamame on my grocery list. I often forget about it when planning meals, but it’s great for topping my nightly dinner salad. Lands End I find frustrating because of their size inconsistency and requiring you to pay for returns, but it’s a great place for exercise tees and bathing suits.
I’m going to try the exercises, which all seem doable. I need a change in my current routine. I’m also going to try the yogurt cake tomorrow as I’m having dinner with my daughter. It sounds terrific. I thought most of the teacup ideas indicated that the designer has too much time on her hands. The centerpiece was pretty but an invitation to a really massive crockery smashup. Thanks as always for these!
The “de-aging” process mentioned in the Harrison Ford article is interesting but not something I agree with. What is the point? Is there something wrong with looking one’s age, no matter what that age is? It goes against my philosophy of embracing myself at every age.
Thank you again for such a useful post! I always bookmark items to read/use later. I appreciate all the effort you put into finding useful information for women of a certain age 🙂
