Stuff and Such on Sunday

 Pink Himalyanan Salt Light.  Have you heard of them, seen then, use them?  They're often used in Yoda Studios which is how my friend learn about them.  They provide a very nice soft light and are quite relaxing.  Thus the yoga connection.  However, they are reported to have other benefits like increased energy, improved mood, better sleep.  Some say they purify the air.  I bought mine through Amazon for under $20.00 and it had the low wattage bulb with it.  It also has a dimmer with 5 selections which is nice.  We tend to use it on the lowest or 2nd to lowest setting.  The light is actually a chunk of pink Himalayan Salt from the area of the Khewna Salt Mines in Pakistan.  They're decorative.  I bought it to see if helped hubby sleep...I think maybe it does, which in turn helps me to sleep or perhaps it helps us both directly?
 A recent meal that was particularly good.  Pork Tenderloin, fresh green beans and a nice salad.  I like to prepare the pork when I bring it home from the grocery.  But, when buying from Cosco you get a rather large package and each package has 4 tenderloins which I season, cut in half, wrap in wax paper, then foil and then freeze in a zip lock bag.   By seasoning ahead (and doing all 8 pieces at a time), you have less mess and safe time.......but additionally the meat has a chance to absorb the flavors of the seasoning more than just seasoning them when you're ready to cook them.  A half piece of tenderloin is perfect for a dinner for 2 people.  3 slices for me, and usually 4 for hubby.
 Travel Hangers.  They are laid out in the 1-2-3 of how to use.  They come folded (like the blue one).  Step one fold down the 2 sides (gives you the size of the pink one), fold out the ends of the 2 sides gives you the size of the yellow one.  They are light weight plastic.  I spotted them advertised the other day and immediately wanted them.  Oddly enough my friend (that told me about the Himalayan Light), sent me a text saying she spotted them too.  We often compare notes on good things travel related.  I ordered them pronto, believe she did also.  I got a package of 10 from Amazon for $9.55.  I think they will be really handy when traveling in Europe where often hangers can't be removed from the closet.  If you ever need to de-wrinkle clothes in the shower, or do a little hand laundry...you need to be able to move the hangers.
 Amazon, my favorite place to shop probably really likes me lately.  I've been shopping from the comfort of my computer.  So much talk of late about the condition of our environment and what we can do to help.  Not using plastic bags at grocery stores for fruits and vegetables is a big one.  The package says these are reusable mesh produce bags that are safe, washable, and eco-friendly; as well as BPA free.  So, thought I would give them a try.  There are 2 sizes, 5 of each size.  I paid less than $10.00 from memory, but can't find my original order to be exact.  I didn't know when I ordered them but, they are made from re-cycled plastic bottles which is an added bonus in my opinion.
I still have the Vertigo, so saved this on my computer in hopes of being able to do these stretches later on.  If you try them, let me know what you think.  They look like good beginner yoga moves.  I am doing more walking again (but sometimes have to stop to slow the dizzies.  But leaning over to do these right now.......nope, not happening.

"Dirty Little Lies".  A HBO series with views of the beach, and The Bridge was perfect for my daughter and I to watch while we were in San Francisco (though the actual bridge photographed was in Big Sur...it felt like we were where it all was filmed.  Based on a best seller by Liane Morarty this 2 season series is packed with stars: Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Joe Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley.............at least those are the women who's names are listed as they appear in the above photo.  It appears though there won't be a 3rd season from what I can find.  Darn it, enjoyed it.  Though doubt hubby would have, it was a good chic flick.  AND we don't have HBO...so there you go.  Have you watched?

No pictures of projects or yarn, cause I have nothing new to show you all, but hope you're keeping busy.

  1. I am trying hard to use less plastic, and will hunt down those mesh bags (or someting similar).
    My partner loves pink salt, and I wonder whether that love would extend to a pink salt lamp? I may try him on that. Thank you.

    1. I found lots of options on Amazon for the bags so you shouldn't have any trouble. If you get the light,please let me know would be very interested in knowing what you think about it. I love the light it gives off and am thinking about getting a 2nd one for my office.

  2. I hope you and your daughter enjoyed your stay here. I, too, enjoyed Big Little Lies (more the first series than the second). The exterior shots of HWY 1 and the Bixby Bridge were certainly charming.

  3. Dear Sandy
    The salt light gives a lovely glow and it will be interesting to hear whether you think it has made a difference.
    Some of those yoga moves look quite tricky, but I can recognise the downward facing dog, the cat stretch (I like that one), the twisty one at the end (as you can tell, I don't know the name of that one), and the shoulder push up. I don't like the one arm balance (and can't do that one!) but it's always a case of practise and being careful to listen to your body. I really enjoy yogalates, which mixes yoga and pilates and hope that doing it (though not as much as I should) will help to keep me flexible.
    Best wishes
    Ellie

    1. Like you Ellie, I only know the name of a few of the moves, but am anxious to give them a try. Balance is always an issue for me, and as we age it becomes even more of a thing...but important to work on as it can help against falls, but the one arm, probably not something I can do.

  4. I like the look of that Pink Salt Light! I want to get one for my father-in-law...if he makes any cracks about it, I will keep it! :-)

    1. Let me know how it goes after you buy it Kay. I really like the look, it's quite calming.

  5. I read Big Little Lies and really enjoyed it so I was pleased when I saw it was being released as a TV series. I thought they did a good job with it but I did prefer the book. The book ended at the end of season one though so I was very interested to see where they took the story in season two. There's always lots of stalls selling those salt lamps at the Christmas markets.

    1. Thanks Jo for the info on the book. Perhaps I'll add it to my list....though it's far too long and I'm not getting much ticked off it. The lights must be pretty popular if you see them often at the Christmas markets.

  6. I got my salt light from thrift store and never really used it.
    Coffee is on

    1. Thanks, I need the coffee Dora. Use your lamp and let me know what you think. My friend got her's at the thrift store also for $4.00 so my 9-10 dollar new from Amazon was pretty good.

  7. Sandy,
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! Interesting about the light and that meal looked lovely! This usually shocks people but I an not a lover of Amazon. I live 5 minutes away from the largest shopping district in this county and I like to look at things in person before I buy them. I also find Amazon to be expensive..many because I can usually find a lot of bargains because it is easy for me to shop the Clearance sales.If I can't find what I am looking for in the stores then I will look on Amazon and have my son order it for as he is a charter member of Amazon Prime. I hope you are having a great week!!
    Hugs,
    Debbie

    1. Thanks for the visit Debbie. I don't like to shop, or fuss with parking and crowds at the malls, so rarely go shopping in person. Plus, I'm not all that close to one that would have everything. I've not found Amazon to be expensive, particularly with Prime since you don't pay shipping on most items. Yarn...though I like to see and squeeze in person, lol.
