1. Environmentally Friendly-sim: The E-Cloth....Hey, mine finally came into the store! As soon as I came home I opened the package and used it on my very dirty bathroom mirror. The result? It works. You spray the mirror with plain water, fold the cloth up, and wipe it. Presto! Clean mirror. I quite like it.
2. Way HUGE plant sale: The VanDusen Gardens in Vancouver is having THE plant sale of the year from 10 am-4 pm, Sunday April 27! That's tomorrow! 40,000 plants will be on sale, with master gardeners available for advice. They'll even have a "plant check" (like a coat check?) and admission to the gardens is free for the day. I have never attended this, but I hear that it's amazing and while I can't go this year, it's definitely on my list of "Things to Do" next spring. I think Jake would really love to attend the Medicine Wheel Ceremony in September, so we'll probably visit the garden for that.
3. Books on the Go: Hey, did you know that you can download audio books from any BC library online? This is a really great service to not only people who are visually impaired, but those who have learning disabilities. Kids can keep up with their peers (and maybe some school required novels) by simply listening to the book! Some you can even burn to CD...now wouldn't this make some great travel entertainment?
4. Free Stuff alert: Want a free sample of granola? Kashi is offering it to US residents until May 18th. I'd love to try it, but I live in Canada. Somehow I haven't had much luck with their free offers-the page for free granola bars awhile ago wouldn't let me register, and this one is just for US residents. Let me know how it goes!
5. Lip balm so tasty I could eat it: The Moody Bee Peppermint Vanilla Lip Balm
I've noticed this stuff at a local store and today decided to try some. I'm quite picky about the lip stuff I use, and lately nothing has really pleased me too much. Other brands either smell like medicine or have a waxy feel and leave my lips still dry and chapped. The Moody Bee one is luxurious, long lasting, and smells so yummy it's hard not to eat it. My lips have been super dry lately and we'll see if it helps with that. Plus it's made locally and is quite inexpensive!
If you'd like to try some, you can purchase it online here. (USA and Canada..$4.49 including shipping...now that's cheap)
