Hitting the Ice With Mr. Cheddar!! ;-)

 

 

I’m glad the Chedster is holding me up; I’ve never been much of a skater. ;)

PS: I’m catching up on some end-of-the-year projects right now so won’t be blogging much until the New Year.

Wishing you a magical holiday season and all the good things in 2015. :)

Dear Veggie… Readers, I Need Your “Helpful Votes” ;-)

amazon

 

As any of my regular readers already know, I’m an avid product reviewer at my review blog: My Real Life Reviews and also at Amazon.com and a few other sites online.

Over at Amazon.com, I’m currently ranked at about #1800 on the TOP 10,000 reviewers listI write reviews there on a regular basis and would like to get up into the Top 1000 Reviewers list.

I REALLY do  to review products, books and eBooks of all kinds.

I hope that my reviews have been helpful to many, many people, over the years. I’ve been told that they have been many times, by individuals, authors and also companies who’s products I’ve reviewed. That always makes me smile. :)

I base a lot of my own purchases on reading other people’s reviews and I’m so grateful that a lot of people DO take the time to write honest and detailed reviews that really help with deciding what to buy or to pass on.

smaller for biz cards A big part of moving up on the Top Reviewers List at Amazon is getting lots of helpful votes and this is where I need your help.

If you stop by my Amazon profile/review page you’ll see a list of the 800+ reviews that I’ve written there to date.

Yes, more than 800…I can’t believe it myself but I do type fast! ;)

If you have a bit of time, I’d really appreciate you reading one or more of my reviews and if you find them helpful, I’d be very grateful for your helpful vote, at the bottom of the review. All you need to have is an Amazon account to sign in with and you can click away!

Thanks if you can help. Happy Shopping, Reading and Weekend! :)

PS: And DO take care out there if you’ve got snow and ice. We’ve got a light skiff of snow here and I’m guessing icy streets. Although I’m a big fan of snow, the ice I could definitely live without! 

Do you know what’s in the hotdogs you eat?

Geraldine:

I’m glad to be a vegetarian when I read posts like this.

I’ll stick to the occasional veggie dog,thanks.😆

The Groovy Green Kitchen on Black Friday 2014 at 9 AM

The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker was at #75. 

Not number 1 but heh on a Paid List, especially on Black Friday, I’ll take it. ;)

GGK COVER WITH MY PHOTO-FRONT COVER ONLY

It’s a rare honor/treat to end up on any Top 100 List at Amazon, especially the paid lists considering the millions of books that are available at Amazon. I wasn’t able to see if I moved up any further later in the day as I was out and about with a lot of errands to do, but it sure was a nice way…

Handmade and Heartfelt Holiday Gifts!

gift ideas 2013

I ♥ handmade and heartfelt gifts, to give and to receive.

Made with ♥, special and one of a kind gifts. Also, giving of our time, in big and small ways. Treasures and memories that will be enjoyed and remembered for years to come.

Gotta ♥ all those reasons and more. ;)

On the eve of Black Friday, I thought I’d share some suggestions here at Veggies…for easy to make handmade gifts and other ideas, just in time for Christmas.

What is your fav handmade gift that you’ve made for someone or received?

***

From the kitchen:

Easy Chocolate Hazelnut Clusters

Slow Cooker Party Mix

The BEST Gingersnap Cookies

Spicy Honey Almonds

***

Knit and Crochet:

52 Free Dishcloth Patterns 

Some Lovely Knit Shawls

Five Spring Knit Cowls

How to Knit Socks and an Easy Peasy Pattern

 Giving of Your Time and Talents

(the most special gifts of all, IMO) :)

-Volunteer to read to someone on a regular basis who is blind or vision impaired.

-Spend a day exploring winter’s wonderland with a child in need. Perhaps a way to also give a single parent a much-needed break.

-Befriend a older person at a care home who has no family or friends that regularly visit.

-Knit prayer shawls and give them to recipients personally, throughout the year.

Offer to help a neighbor who is living alone with some household chores like: snow shoveling, small home repairs, bringing over a fresh plate of cookies…There are a lot of lonely people out there and the holiday season is a particularly difficult time for many people.

-Volunteer to take calls at a local crisis center.

-Volunteer to help with a local literacy program.

-Plan small gifts to give as random acts of kindness: to people you meet on the streets, delivery people, letter carriers, clerks at stores you regularly shop at…and watch their faces light up with your thoughtful gesture.

Some suggestions: Coffee cards, a stack of fresh cookies tied up in a small gift bag, lip balms to help with winter chapped lips, simple hand-knit scarves, good-quality chocolate bars.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I’ve included links to the ones I’ve reviewed over at My Real Life Reviews. 

Most of these should still be available at Amazon.com or Ebay. 

As you’ll note, most of these are older movies. I don’t find too many new releases that I have any interest in viewing. But I’m certainly open to suggestions. ;)

If you have any movies to recommend, of any vintage that you’ve found LOL funny, from start to finish, please do share!!!

There’s no such thing as too much laughter, is there?

Have a wonderful week! :)

This is a haiku/photo from last summer that I was thinking about on Sunday, when I was grooming Mr. Cheddar.

How he ♥♥ his weekly combing with his fav slicker brush.

Nails every 2-3 weeks, not so much but he’s pretty good about that too.

And in-between, he does a great job with his ahhhem…tongue. ;)

Mr. Cheddar, isn’t he purrrrfection? :)
