Last year was such a great holiday season for the family. I can only pray that this year works out just as well. The Martin guitar that I got for my kid sister was such a big hit with her. I am not sure what I could possibly get her this year that will thrill and delight her just as much. But I know that her expectations are high and I don’t want to disappoint her. She deserves the best of everything.
I have been thinking that she might like a gift card so that she can buy some type of accessory for her guitar. Maybe a new travel case, or a Capon, or possibly some type of a new special effects item . Part of me thinks that boss me50 Gift cards are a great option. But honestly, a gift card does not give you the thrill of opening a present and holding something fabulous in your hands right then and there.
If it was up to me, I would give everyone a gift card and be done with it all with one full swoop. But for my kid sister, I’ll make an extra effort.
To be perfectly honest, I had absolutely no idea what any of the Luna Guitars were, much less – where to find a good one at a decent price. I am glad I discovered the WWBW’s website, which gave me many options and ideas to toss around before making a final decision. I mean really it’s already December for heaven’s sake. Christmas seems so far in the distant that I just can’t seem to get into the mood of thinking of anything that goes along with the holiday season, but I am a procrastinator.
I think if my two sisters pitch in as well we can purchase an affordable Luna Guitar much like the one below for Jason for his birthday, which unfortunately falls on Christmas Eve. Poor kid gets robbed of his birthday every year no matter how hard anyone tries. He is a good kid and we want to make sure he gets a good gift this year. Being 13 is hard enough.
A holiday that I really love is Thanksgiving. I love all of the traditional foods and the time spent with friends and family. This year the tribe will be gathering at my home and I really can not wait. I have started cooking the pies and some of the breads already and will be ready to pop the turkey in the oven on Thursday morning.
My sister will be arriving the day before and will be staying with us, I can not wait it has been forever since I have seen her and I am excited to be hosting her family this year. Get ready the turkey is on it’s way, loosen your belt and sit down at the table.
While at work today I saw the very first sign for the many pumpkin farms in this area, and I can not wait to take David to let him pick out his pumpkin for our porch jack-o-lantern. It has become a family trip and party to pick the correct pumpkin and to get it carved and set up on the porch, just right.
I like to pick one smaller pumpkin to make us some pies and we will get this done on this trip too. I love this time of year, the weather has cooled off and we have so much to do this time of year.
There are multiple varieties of uniforms in the United States. One of my favorite types of uniforms are nursing uniforms. Every time I visit a doctors office or hospital I see the medical staff wearing these and they seem to be quite comfortable in their attire.
The history of medical scrubs and uniforms has changed greatly throughout time. Forty years ago when my grandmother was a nurse they never would have dreamed of dressing in scrubs. They wore extremely white uniforms with a cap on their heads. Today it is an entirely different story.
The part of scrub uniforms that is always the most interesting to look at is the
nursing scrub tops. There is a large variety of designs to choose from. From flowers to cartoon characters, almost anything a person is looking for exists in a scrub top pattern. Perhaps the most interesting patterns seen are at pediatrician’s offices. The pediatric nurses can often be seen wearing children’s designs on there scrub tops. I think that this is a nice addition to the pediatrician’s office. These designs can help put the children at ease during their visit.
Here is a good site for moms only. It is a dedicated social network for moms to get together and discuss any and all topics. There are many different kinds of groups that you can join, from political to health or just plain fun, Cafemom has everything. I totally recommend that all moms try this site. I know that you will love it.
We are currently going through a terrible heat wave. We have been in the 90 degree weather for the past five days. People are dropping like flies from heat exhaustion.
Hydration is the best thing a person can do in times of a heat wave. People should drink water like a fish. Also taking as many cool baths can be beneficial. In the inner cities, the fire departments often will turn on the hydrants for people to cool off in the streets. This is a generous thing to do for the community. I wish I could see that done here.
I don’t talk about politics on my blog, however this is not really politics, but my sons Social Studies class and what they are learning. Right now my son is learning about the United States government, the Constitution and how we govern ourselves.
I really enjoy this particular class the kids take. It gives me a common ground to actually help teach my children about their responsibility within our society. I get to explain to them the importance of voting, as well as the ethics and morality of certain laws. Teaching them why somethings are very important to hold onto and why others should be changed.
I have a little ritual that I do every Fourth of July. As it is our Independence day, I read the constitution and keep myself familiar with it. It is an important thing to do for any American, but for me it is a reaffirmation of my freedom. As the kids get older I teach them why this is important to them and one day to the children they may have. I hope that they follow in my footsteps and make this a ritual of their own and pass it along to their own children one day.
It would have been a lot easier for me to understand what exactly it is that my niece Alice is wanting for her birthday if the email had said “a mouth piece for her saxophone”, instead of “a Vandoren Optimum Series Saxophone Ligature” which are the exact words that my sister wrote. I had asked her what her daughter Alice would want and appreciate for her 13th birthday that is coming up in the middle of July. Thirteen is a very hard age to buy for girls or boys.
There is such a big difference between the way that my sister and I communicate with the world. I am a whole lot more kicked back and straight forward, while she has a much larger vocabulary and has a blog that she has been working on since forever. Just by looking at her blog and then mine you wouldn’t even believe that we are related, much less know each other.
Anyway, back to the vandoren optimum sax. I found one online at the website. Now is a great time to get deals. Memorial Day is a heck of a holiday for consumers so I might as well jump on the bandwagon and save some hard earned $$$ as well.
