Speaking of favorite things, here's my five for this week ~
1. Senior Pass for National Parks
Are you or do you know someone who is 62 years old? If so, you should STRONGLY encourage them to get their Senior Pass from the National Park Service as soon as possible. The Senior Pass currently is only $10 for a lifetime pass. The cost is increasing to $80 this year. What can you do with a Senior Pass? You can get into more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by five Federal agencies for your lifetime. The Senior Pass admits the pass owner and up to 3 passengers in a non-commercial vehicle free entrance into some of the most beautiful spots in the world. Check out their website HERE for all the details. But don't wait too long - $10 is a lot less than the $80 you'll have to pay when the price goes up!
2. Going In Style
Every Monday, a friend of mine at work and I chat about what movies we saw over the weekend. Last week he saw Going In Style and said it was really cute. I'm definitely adding it to my want to see list. Here's what Rotten Tomatoes has to say about it, "Oscar winners Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar Baby"), Michael Caine ("The Cider House Rules," "Hannah and Her Sisters") and Alan Arkin ("Little Miss Sunshine") team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty, in director Zach Braff's comedy "Going in Style." Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money."
3. Waterproof Garden Gloves with Fingertip Claws
Spring is here and the height of gardening season will be here very soon. These gloves look like they would be wonderful for any gardener out there! What a unique Mother's Day gift! These allow you to plant and dig without hand tools. Amazing! Interested in some? Click HERE to check them out.
We read this book a while back in book club and, man, it's interesting. Have you read it? Later this month HBO is featuring the movie and guess who's starring in it - Oprah Winfrey. HBO says this, "Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne star in this adaptation of Rebecca Skloot’s critically acclaimed, bestselling nonfiction book of the same name. Told through the eyes of Henrietta Lacks’ daughter, Deborah Lacks, the film chronicles her search, along with journalist Rebecca Skloot (Byrne), to learn about the mother she never knew and understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks' cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever." The book was intriguing, but I thought by the end it got a little stale. It's worth a read though. It's available on Amazon HERE.
5. Chat with my clothes...
Hope you have a very special Easter. After church, Eric and I will be going to the St. Louis Blues hockey game. What's on your agenda for the day? Whatever it is, enjoy your Easter and see you back next week.
