After making many satisfying visits to other blogs, I have returned to my own blog-home with a sense of joy that I now belong to this warm community! In fact, in my playful pup sort of way I even exclaimed, "You B-log to me," on one of my returns! You can groan if you like...
Since July 2nd of this year, I have already had over 500 perusals of my profile. (I did discover, while making minor adjustments to my profile, that Blogger counts my visits as well.) Even my heritage is well represented in that I have had visits from the United Kingdom, Denmark, Norway, France, and Portugal! And, I am well over half way to my 100th post. I'm planning a humdinger of a celebration, too!
Today, as the above photo evokes images of a relaxing spa experience, I decided to do an acrostic on the word PAMPER. I enjoy looking up common words and while looking up pamper, I found out that it probably originates from the Dutch word pamperen– and that it's archaic meaning is "to cram with rich food: glut"! No wonder I love the word!
I invite you to post your own versions of this acrostic and what the word represents to YOU.
Attention to self
Enjoy each moment
- As a follow-up to my July 24th post entitled "20/20," I stumbled upon some relief for my pocketbook! I was referred to a place in Placentia called Ultimate Discount. There I found a bundled package of 2 pairs of reading glasses and 3 cases! I paid $7.99 instead of the usual $10.00 plus for one pair of glasses without the case. It helps that this store is stocked with retired Costco merchandise. With all the misplacing and breakage of my eyeglasses, my husband will thank me. And, it doesn't hurt that Jo-Ann's and Tuesday Morning are located on the same piece of property.
- Speaking of Jo-Ann's– They are having a sale that features discounts up to 40% off on ALL of their papercrafting supplies! I picked up a Crop-a-dile and the newest Fall Matstacks for 40% off! The sale concludes on August 25th.
- Today, I get to take a gorgeous layaway item home! I will be sure to include a photo!
