An easy way – When I buy from Amazon, I use Amazon Smile. When you do that a portion (very tiny portion) goes toward a charity that you select. It doesn’t cost you anything extra. This week I received an email listing the total donation they are making toward my selected charity. They received over $88K this quarter and $969K over all time. That wasn’t all me but it sure felt good to see that. If you order from Amazon, you should check out Amazon Smile.
Tiny wrists – I’ve been interested in a step tracker (with a few other bells and whistles) for a while. I’ve got small wrists. The first one I bought didn’t work. Even at the tightest hole it wasn’t snug enough to track anything. The face was too long so I couldn’t add holes. I’ve ordered a second one to try. Locally the stores have them locked up like Fort Knox so I can’t try without buying (isn’t that a stupid idea!). If anyone has any tips on trackers or smart watches (the simpler ones), I’m all ears.
Sirens galore – Last night our local volunteer fire company was looking for donations. They drove the fire trucks up and down the streets, sirens blazing. We always donate and hope that they did well. It was very cold out. The cats were not impressed. Too much noise although no one took off for “under the bed.” They just flattened their ears.
Peoply – We have seen a lot of friends lately. Some people we see regularly and some not. There is something about the holidays that makes everyone reach out to reconnect. We could use a little of that in June! It’s been downright peoply around here!
Now I remember – We had our first real cold snap. The high was in the mid-30 degree range (around 2 celsius). I couldn’t get my feet warm until I realized that my sneakers were mesh fabric with the air blowing through. Now I’m in my fleece-lined winter clogs. Much better. Time to get out the fleece!
So how was your week?
