Sometimes NOT sleeping is a ~ Blessing

Couldn't get to sleep until early in the morning one day last week.  I knew I needed to sleep but it just wasn't going to happen.  So...I turned to YouTube and found some truly wonderful "new finds".

As I look back I realize it was life changing in some ways and I didn't miss the sleep at all.  Isn't life funny sometimes.

This is what I found:

1)  Andy Andrews telling his tale of singing Amazing Grace as a little boy.

2)  "Piano Lessons" Comedy by Chondra Pierce

3)  A song to play on my kindle at church or learn to sing ~ Gaither Vocal Band - "You Are My All in All - Canon in D"

We Three Kings ~ Frankincense and Myrrh

Today was the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.  The Three Kings joined us at our Nativity Manger.



We sang "Frankincense to offer have I" and "Myrrh is mine: It's bitter perfume."



I was so thrilled to bring my bottles of Young Living Frankincense and Myrrh Essential Oils to share.  Smelling and experiencing these oils added a richness to our experience today.  I believe I've started a new tradition and I love it!

CVS ~ Rain Checks

Coupons in hand - wanting to finish the "Boost" deal for this week (Buy $25 worth of Boost & receive a $10 Extrabucks rewards) and there's only one 6-pack of Boost on the shelf.  Oh no!



I asked the very nice Associate if there were any in the back.  Nope.

No problem - I now have a "Raincheck" - to include the Extrabucks Rewards deal.



CVS you just earned my future business - thank you!

Kroger ~ Mega Sale continues

There are a lot of beautiful things in my life that make me smile.  Today it was...Kroger's Mega Sale is going on for another week.



Yes!  Music to my ears - a big smile on my face!


I've been able to collect my coupons, plan my attack and come home with a good stock up of some things we really need.  Here are a few of the things I've saved on.  


Mission Tortilla chips - 89cents ~ Oscar Mayer Lunch Meat (8 oz) - $1.79 - 75 cent coupon ~ Valley Fresh (5 oz) canned chicken $.89 - 55 cent coupon and Hefty Slider Bags - $.99 - .50 coupon.

  


Like a hunter out to provide for their family - that's me but in the grocery store.

I've included some links on my website that help me plan.  Hope they'll help you also.
