Two Helpful Products for that Pain in the Neck

Two Helpful Products for that Pain in the Neck…

When your neck hurts, life is difficult. You can’t turn your head to look behind you while you’re backing up in the car. During the night, you sleep funny so you wake up feeling more stiff than you did the day before. You feel like your neck can’t hold up that big heavy head of yours. It just kind of sucks.

Well, I have found two great solutions, or at least a great deal of relief.

Discover New Italian Products in the Nonna Box

Discover New Italian Products in the Nonna Box…

Thank you to my new Italian friend, Guido, for my beautifully presented Nonna Box. Even before seeing all of the ingredients, recipes, and stories about Nonna, we were so impressed with the packaging and presentation.

My neighbor, who is also Italian, was especially excited because her children call their grandmother Nonna. After using the ingredients I needed, I gifted the box, recipes, and Moscato Wine Cream to her. She is a fabulous cook and will make the very best of it!

I am a simple cook, so I stuck with the Carnaroli Rice. Easy to make, yet delicious. Cooked with olive oil, white wine, and vegetable broth, this easy dish will fill you up. Top it with saved parmesan cheese for an extra layer of flavor.

The Corn Cookies are absolutely delicious! Just like corn bread, but prettier and with a delightful crunch. We use the Acacia Honey in our tea and as a dip for apples.

Mickey Mouse and Rapunzel Explore Music with Hal Leonard

Thank you to Waldmania PR for my complimentary Musical Exploration books from Hal Leonard.

Emma was so excited to sing along with Rapunzel’s book when we received it, but she had a cold, so she had to hold back and let me do the singing. My highs and lows and slides made her giggle.

mickey

There is no doubt that Emma LOVES to sing! She will sing wherever and whenever she can. She sings at the dinner table, while dancing, coloring, and even in the bathroom. She also loves to tell stories through song, almost in an operatic fashion.

mickey

Mickey and his friends love to make instruments just like Emma. She has made shakers and drums and keeps them around for spontaneous music time. She also loves the opportunity to design the outside like Mickey shows you how to do.

Learning about music becomes an exciting adventure with this playful story that encourages children to experience the joy of singing while they discover the qualities of their own unique voice.

The Main Street Parade has been rained out, but Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy, along with Donald and Daisy Duck and all their friends, form their own parade playing musical instruments they have made from everyday items found around the house. Children will follow simple instructions and share with Mickey and his pals the fun of playing music with instruments they create themselves. This exploration storybook combines music making with imaginative play, following directions to create crafts, and experiencing the sounds of different instruments.
