Olive Oil Love

How can you not love olive oil. Now think of it in a soap!

I recently received this fantastic package of olive oil based soaps, 
from Grecian Look and was asked to comment on them. 
Grecian Look is an internet based supplier of some items 
that can be hard to find outside of Greece for personal or festival use. 

My enthusiasim for these soaps is pretty high, as one of my memories from way back is actually watching my Yiayia make olive oil soap. As long as she was living we had a big hunk of it in the laundry room and bathroom.

Adventures in Winter Window Cleaning

Alright, if you have been following my blog you know that I like my windows being clean, but I don't always have the best luck.

This adventure in window cleaning was no different.

I finally took off the Christmas clings.
You know how they leave a little film and stick on the windows.

I don't know about your home, ours get moved around a lot!
New words, little changes almost daily to see if someone else in the family will notice.
It's a fun game, but leaves a big mess on the window.

Time to clean it!
I cleaned the inside, but it didn't look clean.
Then I realized ...dun dun dunnnn.
Ahhh-it was on the outside!

One of the best and sweetest gifts this past year. I was given a mug for my morning coffee from Agia Skepe Monastery. It has a delicate feeling in my hands. Just lovely. The verse on it also fills me with peace and a great reminder to start each day.

"Seek God daily,
But seek Him in your heart,
not outside it"
St. Nectarios  

So how are you starting your day and this New Year!
Happy New Year may it be filled with health and joy.
