I got my 1st Etsy order the other day. It was a Strawberry Preserves scented candle from Auntie Di's candle shop. Let me just say, OMG! It smells so freaking delicious I want to eat it with a spoon! Her candles are all soy based, so they are better for the environment. I loved how she sent a little hand written thank you note for the order, and even stuck in a free sample of her wax tarts (country apple, so nice...gave it to my mom who loves anything apple) It really does have a great "throw" of scent; I put it in the bedroom, and the smell floated through my whole apartment. It is just the right amount of scent; it won't bother allergies but makes my place smell like Smuckers lol! Thank you so much Auntie Di! I can't wait to place another order! I want to make my mom a gift basket for her birthday/Mother's Day and I'm going to include a candle or two. Now, just what scent.... I could be here all day! (photo courtesy of Auntie Di:

10 things I love about you

One of my favorite Shakespeare plays is "Taming of the Shrew". One of my favorite teen movies is "10 things I hate about you", which is a modern take on Shakespeare. I have begun to lose my patience with Zeus. Half of me is ready to just leave, the other half is scared shitless of that moment. So, in honor of Zeus, Shakespeare, Heath Ledger, and the power of positive thinking, here is a list to remind me why I'm still here. 10 Things I Love about You 1) the way you eat lobster 2) your chest (dead sexy!) and how in the summer when you work all the time, your arms get muscly and sexy :o) 3) that in your own, highly dysfunctional way, you really do care about the peope close to you 4) the way your tummy is always warm when I put my arm around you 5) that you really are very talented at your work 6) how you feed me when you cook 7) the way you get when you're sleepy 8) the sounds you make 9) that you love your daughter 10) the way you make my house feel like a home when you're here I don't know about tomorrow, I can't even promise you today, but for now, I'm still here, and I really do love you...
