Red Nose Day #RedNoseDay

May 27, 2016 · Leave a Comment

Thursday 5/26/16 was Red Nose Day.  I never heard of Red Nose Day until my grandson mentioned it to me.  I had to Google RED NOSE DAY to learn what Red Nose Day is all about.

To my surprise, I find out that Red Nose Day is a charitable organization whose “mission is to help kids who need us most”  Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years.  Half of the money distributed by Red Nose Day 2016 will be spent right here in the U.S.     YEAH!


My six year old grandson, who didn’t have a red nose to wear on Red Nose Day, decided that he would wear a red sneaker in place of a red nose.  So on Red Nose Day, he wore two different color sneakers, one white and one red.  Christian thought it worked, and I thought he put on two different sneakers by mistake. When he explained to me that he was wearing the red sneaker for Red Nose Day, it was my nose who ended up turning red!

What rock have I been living under!

#Seedling #PlantingIdeas #GrowingMinds

May 26, 2016 · Leave a Comment

Groovinmoms loves Seedling.  We love to see our grandchildren smile and play with their imagination.  So much better than looking at their i-pods or computers.

Seedling offers unique activities.  Seedling was founded in New Zealand in 2007, Seedling began with an initial launch of activity kits that sparked hours of imaginative play.  Seedling kits are designed to help fuel young imaginations and open new paths to discovery. Young users are invited to use their own initiative at every stage of the activity – from the materials they’ll use to the ways they’ll play with it. Once they start, there’s no end to the possibilities young minds can come up with.  photo 3

When I introduced Seedling’s Glow by me my grandson was impressed.


He opened the box and began to draw on this new ball.  Christian designed his night globe just how a six year old would want it designed.  He was especially happy when the night globe was turned on and he watched the colours change.

The Seedling Glow by Me took on a light of its own.


Can’t wait to give Sophia Seedlings My Fuzzy Flamingo.  She is gonna love creating this pink flamingo.IMG_4445

Seedlings help kids design own box kiteButterfly Wings.

This is what cousins do on a beautiful Spring Day, they spend a day together in the backyard with Seedling.!


They go outside and create something that is out of this world and  super fun like Design Your Own Alien Beanie


They enjoyed a full day of adventure and creativity with Colour The Earth dreaming of where in the world they would travel and visit.


What fun to find a box full of magic in  My Magical Flying Unicorn. A day filled with precious moments, laughter and love.

When I’m 64 Just Got Real #Happybirthday

May 23, 2016 · 2 Comments


Well, here I am celebrating my 64th birthday, honestly I  don’t know where it all went. I just know it went by pretty fast. I have been blessed with a loving family and friends and a wonderful job. Not complaining. Life is a celebration and that is why every year we get together and celebrate every birthday. This year we are at Agnanti in Astoria


We shared a Greek Salad,  tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, Feta cheese and olives aand  Melitzanosalata roasted baby eggplant and garlic spread. Simple and delicious. Our sisters each got the special Bronzino fish  (head and all) and lemon potatoes. They picked that fish down to the bones. Merci went for the Tigania sautéed strips of  chicken and fried potatoes with lemon and spices and I had the Aegean Pasta Seafood sauce over pasta. I can’t believe I ate the whole thing.


The complimentary dessert  Halvah Politiko warm sponge-cake made with semolina, butter and orange syrup    never had a chance, we gobbled it all up


A birthday is the first day of another 365-day journey. A chance to be the shining thread in the beautiful tapestry of the world,  to make this year the best ever. Let’s enjoy the ride!!
