Here's what I'm enjoying right now!

My friend, over at The Liberty Belle did a post last week with a list of things she was really liking at the moment.  I so enjoyed her post, I decided to do one of my own.  I'm not getting any financial recompensation for listing these things, I just really like them!

The first two things are free!

 Our peonies didn't do great this year, only 3 blooms.  But aren't they pretty!



Our clematis did amazing!  Every time I look out back, I see all these pretty white blooms.


I love things that smell good and burn candles frequently.  Bath and Body works has a new scent called White Tea and Sage.  It's a light, clean scent and it just makes me happy!



Speaking of things that smell good, here is another.  My sister told me about this laundry detergent after reading about it on another blog.  This stuff smells amazing!  And the scent lasts.  (so if you like unscented, this is not for you).  However, it's not cheap, so I use it only for a few things.  It's wonderful for sheets, and I also use it for my tops that I hang to dry.  Just last week someone told me I smelled so good, and it was just this detergent.



This Clorox Daily Shower Cleaner is such a time saver.  You spray down the tub and walls each time you shower and your tub stays clean without a scrubbing!  Yes, I do still clean my tub, but not nearly as often as I used to.



I don't have a photo of this because I lent it out, but I read such a good book recently.  It's called I've Seen the End of You, by Dr W. Lee Warren.  He is a Christian neurosurgeon who prays with and for his patients.  He talks of the struggle he felt in praying for people with brain tumors, knowing that God could heal them, but also knowing it was so very rare.  Bob and I both read it and were really impacted by it, now several people from work have also really enjoyed it.  I think you would too!



This is a Dyson V7 Stick Vac.  I love this thing!  It's cordless, it cleans both carpet and hard floor, it makes vacuuming so much easier and I can't believe how much it picks up!  It's so light and can easily get under low things.  I find I vacuum more often because this thing is so easy to use.  However, it's not cheap.  This list price is about $300.  I got it in a post Christmas sale for about $150, so keep your eyes open!


What about you?  I'd love to see a post of things you love right now!

I love to see flowers blooming! I haven't seen any Lysol around in awhile. I hope work is going well for you.

I love your flowers. Those are beautiful! I have a stick vacuum that I love - not a Dyson, but I still love and use the one I have all the time. I would like to try that Glamour Wash. I love good smelling things. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week.

Your peony bloom and clematis vine are beautiful. Thx for these great tips. The laundry det. sounds wonderful. Hope you have a nice day, Mari.

Your list is impressive. Getting that vacuum for half off was a godsend. Wow.

Things I love right now? Having a place called home without a mortgage having no financial worries like those in recent months- I feel for all with family. I love seeing my flowers in bloom today & listening to the soft rainfall. Really, too many things to mention.

That vacuum is intriguing but I have a pretty good one that I like okay. But I hate the cord!

I use Lysol for everything around here. The flowers are so pretty.

I love my Dyson too Mari. It is a life changer for sure. I am going to look for the laundry soap. I love nice smelling sheets. And the Daily shower....another thing for my list. Thanks for sharing.

I couldn't afford a Dyson but got a off-brand stick vacuum that I also love. They are so easy to grab and go. Beautiful flowers and that candle scent does sound lovely, as does the detergent scent. Thanks, Mari!! I enjoyed this post!!

I've wanted a stick vacuum for a long time and I may just keep my eyes peeled for this Dyson ... maybe the price will come down. Also I'm intrigued by the Glamorous Wash. Just sounds like something I'd have around, haaahaha xoxo
