Good Monday Morning my friends.  For those of us in the United States, today is the day we remember those who died in the service of our Country.

All Gave Some, Some Gave All.

Today we are in NYC moving our daughter into her summer internship residence. Exciting times for this girl, a little nail-biting for this mom. But I keep reminding myself that she is a smart young lady with a good head on her shoulders. “She’ll be fine, she’ll be fine” will be my summer mantra.

What did the internet offer up this past week?

How to propagate your houseplants.

With summer just around the corner, it’s good to know ALL ABOUT SUNSCREENS.

And, if you need an ice cream maker for the upcoming summer months, this Cuisinart is on sale today (more than 50% off!).

With summer comes mosquitoes; some suggestions to deal with these peskiest of pesky critters.

Summer’s best grilled salads!

Grilled Sundried Tomato Pizza!

I fell out of love with wallpaper several years ago, but find that I’m starting to miss him…so think we’re going to try to get back together soon. Great tips for wallpapering a small bathroom.

Ten things you should never refrigerate.

Hope your week is off to a great start.  We are heading out to eat lunch at one of New York’s famous delis (gluten-free be damned), then to 9/11 Memorial and capped off by a visit to Chelsea Market.

Hugs, my friend.

    How exciting for your daughter and what an amazing experience she will have. However, it is certainly a little unnerving for mom I am sure. As hard as it is for a parent to leave her alone in such a big city, just remember that reaching these goals and having these amazing opportunities is not only a result of all the hard work your daughter has done, but also a testament to the support and guidance her parents provided along the way so that she could achieve her dreams. Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for a job well done as a mom, and then give your daughter a great big hug (as I am sure you will miss those until she is back home). I hope you got to do some NY sightseeing as a family as well on this holiday weekend, once the task of moving your daughter into her new summer residence was done.

      Hi Dorene, It is very exciting and yes…unnerving. Without a doubt, she has a good head on her shoulders and we take comfort in that. We will be back to NYC 3 more times this summer, so we will have plenty of time to do some sightseeing. Any suggestions?

      Have a great week my friend.

      Hugs, Lynn
