Deodorant or antiperspirant?

My sister wants me to try this deodorant she just started using. I’ve told her repeatedly that I hate using something that is not also an antiperspirant! I hate to sweat! She gave me a container of the brand she is using, and told me that it is all natural. I understand that she likes things to be all-natural, and I’m fine with that, but if it doesn’t stop me from sweating, I don’t want to use it! I don’t know how else to explain it to her. What would you do?

The modern day musicians

I find it amazing how today’s music can be made with machines with funny names like kaossilator and not have to play any traditional instruments like a guitar, drum, or keyboard at all. I have mixed emotions about the use of machines like that. I find the technology amazing and fascinating, but I also feel sad for all of the people in the world who are taking band in school that will never actually end up using their instruments once they get out of school.

All the tooling pieces you could possibly want

I guess I never realized just how many different sizes of machinery parts a person or business might need until Bobby showed me the huge selection of items that he often buys online when he needs something that he can’t find locally. The sheer size of the inventory, from the standpoint of having to create and maintain the website is mind-boggling to me!

A Quick Treat

Lady Bug asked for ice cream when I picked her up today. She was on her best behavior so I decided to treat her. We stopped off at our local frozen yogurt store and each got a tasty treat. I got tart vanilla with raspberries. Lady Bug enjoyed strawberry yogurt with chunks of fresh strawberries.

It not only tastes delicious but isn’t nearly as bad for you as some of the rich ice creams out there. We were both more than satisfied with our delectable selections.

Office Treats

Yummy!!! Someone brought in some very tasty Halloween treats to the office today. There were brownies in the shape if bats, and cute little cat and pumpkin cookies. I tried to resist but by the end of the day I ended up eating one of each.

If I don’t want to put on 10 pounds this holiday season I better beware of all the delicious treats that I’ll see in the coming months. I know I won’t be able to say no to everything. I just need to learn to take the treats in moderation. Is one treat a day too much?
