    Keeping Cool with

    Monday, July 15th, 2013

    It is going to be a HOT week here in Connecticut, and many points beyond. Whew! Now is the time to think about all the ways you know how to keep cool and try them ALL out. Grab your water and let’s keep cool this week.

    Keeping Cool with

    personalized camp water bottle Ok, water. It is essential for human life. We cannot live more than 36 hours without it. That is under ideal situations. When temperatures skyrocket, water becomes that much more important. So grab your water bottle and keep hydrated my friends. has a wide selection of personalized water bottles to choose from. So all you have to decide on after purchasing your new water bottle is if you like your water on the rocks, with lemon, mint or just straight up.


    children's outdoor table The heat might make your appetite seem to evaporate, but we still need to fuel our bodies to enjoy the summer fun. Forget indoor cooking though. Summertime is all about barbecues, picnics and dining after dark. So cut into those refreshing watermelons, hand out cool grapes by the bunch, and think nice crisp veggies to tempt your wilted appetite with. All served up at your children’s very own outdoor table, and you just might find the kids eating again, without you slaving over a hot stove.


    children's growth chart - solar system

    Another option is to avoid the heat of the day altogether with activities after dark. Get outside after the sun goes down and enjoy the cooler night air while taking in a little star gazing. Can you find Venus, Saturn or simply recognize the phases of the moon?  How are you at tracking down constellations like the Big Dipper, Orion’s Belt or Virgo (which you could spy tonight if you headed outside)? With the heat we will be feeling this week, you could be an expert at astronomy by summer’s end!


    state square personalized canvas by donna ingemanson Now how about that road trip we suggested the other day. There is still plenty of time to point the family car to points unknown. And do you know one of the other perks of a road trip? Most vehicles have air conditioning nowadays! So slide behind the wheel of your air conditioned ride and relax along the way to wherever. How about Louisiana to see the pelicans, bald cypress trees or the capital city, Baton Rouge? What about the Florida coast, where you might spy a mockingbird, cabbage palm or even a Florida panther. Armed with your a/c,  you can let the compass be your guide. Once your summer road trip has come to an end you can keep the memories alive with a personalized state square canvas by Donna Ingemanson. Just pick the state and you can enjoy the snapshot of it every day all year long.


    What is your favorite way to keep cool?

    Happy Earth Day

    Monday, April 22nd, 2013

    Today is Earth Day!

    go green for all wall art

    Three cheers for this wonderful planet that we call home. It provides us with food, shelter and nourishment of the senses. We need to remember that on Earth Day, but really we should consider every day Earth Day, as the Go Green for all wall art suggests. We all know that if we don’t take care of our planet, it won’t be able to take care of future generations.


    musical fairy tree growth chart by eeboo

    So what can you do to ensure the health of the Earth? Plenty! For starters, why not think about planting a tree? Any old tree will do. They help the earth by removing carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air. They also produce oxygen, which is vital to humans, plus loads of other creatures. Trees also improve water quality, reduce noise pollution and are just plain nice to have around. That’s a fact too, as they have been shown to improve mental health, just by seeing them.


    Waste Basket – flower border

    Another idea to put into action today is to do a cleanup of your area. That could be a local forest, stream, schoolyard, business, neighborhood or wherever you find an excess of refuse. Put your money where your mouth is and put that trash in its place! Its amazing how much garbage you can find around, when you open your eyes and truly look. Do the Earth and all its creatures a favor and clean it up so that it can breath and flourish.


    oeuf classic crib – birch

    And keep the health of the Earth in mind as you go into the future. Choose items with less packaging. Select products that come from recycled or sustainable materials. The Oeuf classic crib in birch is the perfect choice for that in any nursery. It is made in Latvia, a nation with a strong woodworking heritage, from locally sourced wood from managed forest. Environmentally friendly E1 certified MDF made from recovered wood  fibers. The finishes are non-toxic and water-based, free of VOC health hazards. Made in a Forest Stewardship Certified facility. Wood wastes and finishing materials are recycled. Packaged in recycled cardboard. A perfect crib that was created for parents who love modern design and want the safest possible environment for their baby.


    Happy Earth Day!

And as the world reawakens, we can take the opportunity to give back and do a little something for Mother Nature. That might be planting a tree, cleaning up garbage from your property, school or workplace, or maybe just getting into your garden and doing some spring cleaning there. Whatever you do benefits the world. Aside from taking care of the world on Earth Day, you can also make choices to benefit it every day with Eco-friendly choices, like these;

    Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

    When was the last time you talked to your siblings? How long ago did you see them last? Did you share a laugh, tear or hug? While you may have many friends in your lifetime, your siblings are the only ones that are there through it all. So often they are your first friends and quite possibly your best.

    Happy Easter

    Friday, March 29th, 2013

    It’s Good Friday; the start of the Easter weekend holidays for people of the Christian faith. The celebration is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Chris made. He was arrested, tried and hung on a cross to die by the Romans of the day. Christians believe that he died for their sins, so that they may be given a new life. He is seen as the Son of God and the proof of that is in his resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday. It concludes the forty day fast of Lent, incorporates Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and of course Easter Sunday. Many attend church to listen to the Gospels, get baptized (newly converted), and receive the Eucharist (High Communion). Nowadays, a newer custom of collecting Easter eggs left out by the Easter Bunny has children looking forward to the holidays with glee.
