I had done my blog post in the morning, since I had a Guest post, thinking it would give me a break when I returned back home after an afternoon of visiting. Once I had returned home to settle back in I checked my blog to find the following comment from Cathy, who had been my Guest yesterday....
Thank you Cindy for the wonderful chance to join your blog for a day! You are tireless in your goal of promoting local Bruce County businesses. All of us that fall in that category owe you a debt of appreciation! You certainly are a shining example of selflessness! The amount of traveling that you do, (all at your own expense), to hunt out new treasures, (as well as old), and then spread the word about them, is truly amazing! It makes you one of the unique treasures of Bruce County, and one very special lady!! Again, a huge thanks, and enjoy the rest of this beautiful sunny day! on Captured By Chocolate & Pastries
Wow ! truly I was flattered beyond flattery after reading Cathy's comment. It is people like Cathy who really make my "heart sing" to know my time and efforts are appreciated. A "simple" courtesy of a Thank YOU goes a long way, does it not? And like Cathy, and others I have been blessed to have met along my journey of blogging, and living life, it is those people who have taken a moment to make me feel good by extending their appreciation and thanks. Thank you Cathy for taking that moment out of your busy life to extend this courtesy to me.
I do LOVE supporting the Community and Small Businesses, as in my eyes it still is people helping people that make it all happen and come together, is it not? Do people get that busy in their lives that they can't send off a simple "thank you" to another? some days I do wonder ....
I have terrible "dry" skin, with Winter causing it to dry even worse. I have heard so much about Burt's Bees from friends (thanks Carla) and family (thanks Paula) that I thought I would give it a try.
It has been about six weeks now I have used the creams, quite often twice to three times a day. I am finding my face is still extremely dry and flaky. I made a call to Burt's Bee Customer Service to see if I should have had results by this time. The Customer Service girls assured me I should have had seen an improvement by now. She suggested I try purchasing the Intense Hydration Creams.
The problem here is I had already spend $60.00 plus taxes on the Sensitive Skin Creams with no results, and really wasn't to overjoyed at the prospect of spending yet more money for trying yet another product.
Without even asking the Customer Service Girl told me she would be sending me off a cheque to reimburse me for what I had already spent, and I could then go ahead to make a purchase of the new Intense Hydration Creams. I was extremely pleased with the quality of Customer Service I received. Thank You, Burt's Bees.
Once I purchase and begin using the Intense Hydration Creams, I will update on how I made out with the results after a couple of weeks of first using them.
The other day I had called my friend, Toni with an "i" to ask if she would like to go along with me to the luncheon being put on by my Auntie's Church in Port Elgin. To my delight she had said she would. I was happy for the company and not having to go by myself, since my Rob was otherwise occupied being The "Crabby Cabbie".
Toni and I "hooked up" in Hepworth prior to the lunch hour, and headed out from there.
What was even cooler was Rob had called at the same time I had been skyping with Nathan, so I had put Rob on speakerphone on my Blackberry so he too could say "good-bye" to Nathan. Truly it was our pleasure to meet such a nice young man, who I will be happy to stay in contact with.
A warm welcome goes out to my newest follower who has joined me here. Thank you Michelle of Ms. enPlace for being here on my daily journal, with my sometimes opinions and ramblings.
Almost forgot ... checking in with Toni, Judy, Stacey, Michelle, Diane, Ellen, Debby, Cathy, Jean, Karen, Elsie, Gill, Darlene, Vicki, Abby, Marg, Janet, Marlyn, Christy, Alice and Monica, on how everyone did on their first month of the 52 Week Money Challenge (you can find on the sidebar) ?
Hope everyone else is off to a great start for the first Month of the Challenge? I LOVE having the company along the way each week of the Challenge.
I am feeling very tired, with my neck giving me much grief today, and besides I have rambled on quite enough for one day, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
