You Can’t Hide Your Vibe

I remember the first time I discovered a mood ring as a little girl. I thought I’d found a wearable piece of magic.

The notion that a ring changed colors according to my mood delighted me so much that I begged my mom to buy it for me. 

Needless to say I promptly lost it two weeks later while swimming in a lake. What can I say? I was a kid.

Lessons Along the Way

Look what I’ve been doing! I crocheted my first ever afghan. I taught myself via Youtube. It took 49.5 hours over six weeks.

So, here are my thoughts on this topic.

What do You have in Common with a Trapped Monkey?

My neighbor told me a fascinating story I want to share with you. Over our morning coffee on Sunday, we somehow got on the subject of monkeys. (I know, not most folks average coffee talk subject!)

Anyway, Brandy was telling me that her brother spent some time abroad in the Philippines. While there, he discovered that the locals have a very unique tactic to trap unwanted monkeys.
