Sleek, Black Clongi Umbrella

Sleek, Black Clongi Umbrella

It’s so easy, a four year old can do it! Seriously. It is. This Clongi umbrella opens and closes with one hand and one button. It’s neutral color, compact size when closed, and ample size when open are all perfect qualities for our needs. Emma will be proud to use this umbrella.

Product Description from Clongi:

21″ Folding Travel Umbrella is a convenient folding umbrella that provides plenty of protection when open and is small enough to fit in your purse or bag with ease when closed.

– STRONGER. We use the finest quality pongee fabric in the design of our umbrellas for women and men, making them far more durable. 

– MORE COMFORTABLE TO CARRY. A loop on the handle lets you tote the umbrella on your wrist, and the leather handle is comfortable to grip. 

– TRULY WINDPROOF. Other umbrellas for men and women claim to be windproof, but end up becoming bent when bad weather strikes. The Clongi folding umbrella won’t let you down! 

– EASIER TO OPEN & CLOSE. Our folding umbrella opens and closes with just the touch of a button. 

– MORE STYLISH. The chic black look of the Clongi travel umbrella is a fashionable choice for men and for women. 

Thank you to Clongi for my complimentary umbrella in exchange for this review.

Molly the Mole is an Odd Ball

This is Molly. I rescued her seven years ago from a puddle on my street during a huge rain storm. I think she was a mole. I have no idea if she was a girl, but named her Molly anyway. I took her to a wildlife rescue shelter and they weren’t sure either, but they promised they would take care of her. Moles only live 3-5 years, so she’s probably long gone now.

I’m a Natural in My World

dancing

What are you a “natural” at doing?  I am a natural at dancing. Been doing it since the age of three. Do it all the time. Can’t help it.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?  I prefer a one floor house. I’ve lived in both and I definitely prefer a nice one floor house, nice and spread out. Stairs are overrated!

What was your favorite subject in school?  My favorite subject in school was English. And I still enjoy writing, proofreading, editing, and reading.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain..  would fall when needed and cease when not.

The Best Laid Plans…

‘The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.’

No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it. The saying is adapted from a line in “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns : “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”   Dictionary.com

 


Well, we had to scrap our camping trip. It has been raining up in these parts for days on end. The satellite shows a hug band of rain headed for West Jefferson, NC. The rain will start this afternoon and continue until tomorrow. Not the ideal camping weather. I don’t mind being cold, but I do mind being wet.

Big fat bummer.

But I had a great time yesterday visiting my old school. I spent two hours just wandering the halls, talking to colleagues, and being introduced to the students as “the very first dance teacher” at the school. I felt like a bit of a celebrity. I’ve been gone for 9 years, so of course, all the students I knew have been gone for a few years.

It felt nostalgic and sad, but inspiring at the same time. The school is still vibrant with color and sound. The students and staff seem happy. It’s just as I remembered.
