What to buy in April

I found these ideas on One Good Thing she has a list like this for every month of the year.

Image result for word: April  

April Is The Best Month To Buy…

1. Cookware Sets

The month of April leads up to both wedding season and graduation season. And one of the things that both grads and newlyweds want is a great set of cookware. Luckily for them, many departments stores will be offering great sales and discounts on cookware sets this month!

2. Home Improvement Supplies

We call it “spring cleaning,” but it’s usually more like “spring cleaning and organizing and fixing things around the house.” If you’ll be doing any of those things around the house this month, make sure to take advantage of the Spring Black Friday sales and discounts at Home Depot!

3. Auto Parts & Services

April is National Car Care Month! Winter can be really hard on cars, and yours surely deserves a little TLC now that the weather has improved! Take advantage of discounts on tune-ups, new tires, auto parts, and more.

4. Secondhand Goods

You probably won’t find a lot of special deals on secondhand clothes this month, but what you will find is a huge selection! People are spring cleaning their closets this month, so you’re likely to see a lot of recently donated items at your local thrift shops. Spend an afternoon combing the racks, because you never know what you might find!

5. Spring Clothing

Retailers will be clearing out spring styles this month in order to make room for incoming summer styles. That means you can find great discounts and markdowns on spring-y clothing for the whole family, just in time for warmer weather!

6. Earth Day Discounts

Earth Day is on April 22nd, and many businesses will celebrate by offering special earth-friendly deals and discounts. Some deals you might find include outdoor gear, hiking boots, eco-friendly cleaning supplies, and more!

7. Jewellery

April is a great time to snag a deal on jewellery, because jewellery stores are gearing up for Mother’s Day in May. Take advantage of all the sales and discounts on jewellery this month, and then you won’t be scrambling for a gift next month! :-)
Guess which ones I'm going to be focusing on?

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Putting my best foot forward

Once a year I go get a hair cut. Tomorrow is that day.

Actually, for the last four, it has been a hair shave, that is every hair on my head was cut to an mm of its life. This year to celebrate my 59th year I decided to modify the cut a little as the hot flashes and the symptoms of menopause have been on the decline letting me hope I have finally entered Post-Menopause

I decided I was going to do some research on what kind of cut I wanted. Along the way, I learned a little bit of hairdresser speak.

I look carefully at Jamie Lee Curtis and Dame Judi Dench as they are the epitome of style for the older woman but while both cuts were interesting neither was what I wanted though Jamie Lee comes close.

I like the top layer it is short but longer than the sides so there is a little on top to play with and dress up plus it is still easy to take care of. For the sides and back, I want to go shorter. You see how the hair fades from the long top to the really short area around the ears this is w…
