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…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
