Dr. Seuss & Friends Books....

A few weeks back I found this great deal online, and decided to take up the opportunity to start collecting all the Dr. Seuss books and also the Disney Books.... There are a ton of them to collect, and to have them delivered to me was awesome for me :)

The first delivery for the Dr. Seuss books cost me $4, for four of them. The next deliveries of 3 books in each delivery is going to be $19, and I can choose my delivery times, every 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 4 weeks etc. etc. The nice thing is that on your profile you can see which books are going to be in your next delivery.

Here is what I got in my first delivery for $4 :)

Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Ten Apples Up On Top
The Cat In The Hat
Go, Dog, Do!

... and a 2013 Calendar.
The Calendar is pretty awesome, so cute!!

The next 3 books I will be receiving are : Green Eggs and Ham and Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb and The Eye Book :)

The first delivery for the Disney books cost me $9.99, for 6 of them. The next deliveries of 3 books in each delivery is going to be $19 too. The rest is the same as the Dr. Seuss info.

Here is what I got in my first delivery for $9.99 :)

Toy Story 3
The Lion King
The Jungle Book
Beauty and The Beast
Peter Pan

.... and a kiddies car seat activity bag :)

I'm not sure yet what the next 3 Disney Books I'm going to be receiving yet.

If you are interested in also collecting the series of books for Dr. Seuss and Disney, click here : Early Moments - Dr. Seuss & Friends and Disney Books. I will "warn" you, I thought they were going to be A4 sized books, but they are all A3 sized books, still worth it though :)

My Beautiful Orchid....

I got a wonderful Christmas gift from the family I help out. They gave me my very first Orchid, it is just wonderful!! I love the colour and I love the look of Orchids, I've never thought of buying my own, but I have always wanted to have one.

Although, before getting it I didn't realize how much work it is to keep it alive, lol... I guess it isn't too bad, just remembering to water it and the right amount to not kill it will do...

Here is a pic...

I'M BACK!!!!....

Wow! Seems like it's been forever since I last posted a blog!! I've been down and out for a couple weeks and now am back and ready to keep up with as many posts as I can get :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all an amazingly awesome New Year!! Can you believe how quickly this year has gone, I remember last New Year like it was yesterday!!

Winter has also crept up on us fast here in Michigan. Last year we had like no snow, this year we are being covered in the beautiful white fluffy stuff!! I do call it beautiful and I do love it, but I also know the dangers of driving in it! In the four Winters that I have been through here in Michigan on Wednesday was the first time I had ever driven in that amount of snow covered roads, by the time I left to come home they had still not salted the roads and there were run / spin offs all over the place. The usual trip I take home which normally takes me about 30 / 35 min ended up taking me 2 hours!! Part of the road (the section I was extremely nervous about in the weather that night, ended up being closed JUST before I got there, because there were 10 - 15 cars that had tried to go down and up and ended up not making it and running the road! I was thankful that that section had been cut off and that it wasn't me in one of those cars!!

So I ended up turning around and going a different route, but getting back onto the road I normally take, just a few miles away from where it was closed. Unfortunately 20+ minutes of that 2 hour commute was me skidding and spinning out onto the side into a slight ditch. I was beside myself when I called 911, I was being SO careful and driving SO slow, I don't know what happened at that particular section! :( Luckily while on the phone to 911 a lovely couple in a Suburban stopped and offered to pull me out - I accepted graciously tears and all. LOL

So that was a definite bummer to my first real Winter Snow Drive, and "ooooo" "aaaaahhhhing" as the snow fell all day Wednesday.... But there were no injuries to either the car or myself, just tears of shock :)

When I get my things together I will get some "missed out" blog posts up... Better late than never for them right :)
