#free shipping

I love free shipping and anytime I order online I look for coupon codes that give me free shipping. There is always one....all you have to do is google it.  So I never ever pay for shipping.  I get coupons at home and that is when I order.

Well you dont have to look for those codes because if you follow my blog I will be posting codes and coupons for not only free shipping but also for discounts.

First, on my Avon Site you automatically get free shipping if you spend a minimum of $40.  That is every day....but once in a while, like now until Nov can get this..........


Head on over to my Estore at and use the code!

Believe Like a Child

Believe Like a Child Believe Like a Child by Paige Dearth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of Alessa who at the age of 7 was abused by her uncle even as her mother knew. The story of a girl whose life was one disaster after another. Living on the streets, starving and using any means to survive. We follow her from one horrible experience to another. Until she is rescued and life turns around for her...but does it? Just when you think she is fine....disaster strikes again.

This story was heartbreaking and somewhat graphic. But unfortunately the world is full of homeless people with teenagers among them. An all too real story that makes you think how unfair life could be.

Times are changing....

Ever look back at something you did and several years later you do it again but find the whole thing has changed?  Not making sense am I?  Let me explain....

In 1982 I became an Avon Rep and loved it.  When I went to bring my children to school I handed out books along with making friends.  I got a lot of business but did not make money that I could live on (thankfully my hubby supported us) my Avon money went to having breakfast out with friends or picking up something for one of my children.

I quit Avon in 1991 and got a full time job that paid much better and am still at the job today.  But with retirement down the road I thought I would once again try Avon....but this time it is a whole different world out there.  Orders are placed not by paper - but online.  Not only do I submit my orders online but anyone can go to my e-store and place an order.  Then there is social media out there.  Before it was face to face with customers....and it still is....but I have made a lot of friends through social media who order from me....I now go into doctor's offices and restaurants and pass out samples along with my business card (never had that last time) and my brochures.

I have actually passed strangers on the street (usually a mom pushing a carriage) and asked if they would like a book.  So even though times are changing...I have found that I have changed also.  Guess you are never too old....

Have a great day!

Follow me

Every night I check my blog for any comments from people.  Of course my good follower Brenda always stops by and leaves a note or two.  (Thank you Brenda)

Then I look at my "follow" list and find there are only 22 people that truly follow me....According to my counter, there are over 100 people daily that view my blog but for some reason they do not desire to follow me.

I have run out of room for all the people who I follow and sometimes cant keep up with all the blogs, but somehow I manage to go through most of to comment more, maybe then I will get followers.

What makes someone follow another blog?  I know I follow someone because of many different things but mostly if we have the same interests.....reading, work, children, grandchildren, Avon, beauty, selling, crafts, crocheting, cruising, travel, - to name a few.

What makes you follow a blog?

Throwing...tossing...get out of the it comes.....yes, I do it and most of my co-workers do is it down a block and out the window I Avon book.  Every morning my newspapers are tossed on my I decided that along with approaching people to take an Avon book, or putting them on my mailing list to receive one via usps.....I will toss.

It is hard work but somehow I talked my grandson into helping me and he loves it.  On the way home from school we hit a block or two and he gets out and tosses books on people's steps or porches.  I havent gotten any calls but some have ordered online which is also ok.

Dont live in my neighborhood? and would like a book?  email me [] your name and address (you may if you like include your phone number but not required) and I will put you on my mailing list to receive a obligation to buy - but you can get a discount using the code WELCOME on your first order...all I ask is if you dont see anything you want....pass the book onto someone else.....thank you....

or order directly online at click on shop brochure to see what's new!

Full of crock

My favorite word is in crock pot.  I am an avid user of one because I do not have any time to cook.  I am a good cook and when the kids were little I spent my days cooking and baking...going so far as to bake my own bread.  But alas, five kids later who are now grown with families of their own (hence the 9 grandkids) I have no use for cooking for just hubby and me.  So we do get by with minimal cooking and going out for dinner on weekends.

But I still love to cook, but having a full time job at a school, part time job selling Avon and a house to keep - plus the grandkids....well, cooking fell on the wayside.  So now when I need a full meal (going out is nice, but not practical) I turn to my crockpot.  Best invention in the world.  Up early before work, throw everything into it...set the timer and I am done.  Come home to a house that smells so good.....and the food is done, just scoop it onto the plate and you have a nice warm tasty meal, especially with winter coming.
