Ease of Shopping Online

We love shopping online! There are a few reasons, why my family and I love to shop online and have been doing this more frequently in the recent past. With online shopping, we can conveniently buy what we want, when we want without trying to beat traffic, driving to a store and looking for the items in the shelves, or carrying the items and standing in line. Especially with the busy lifestyle, making purchases online is quick - simply search for the items and buy it - and the products get delivered right to our front door. Also, depending on the items, it is quite easy to return without regretting the purchasing decision.

Taking Some Time Off for "Me Time"

No matter how busy we get, my husband and I give ourselves "me time". During these bits of time we make for ourselves, we not only do activities that are fun for us, but also take the time to catch up on our favourite Netflix shows and movies.

Learning from Eyewitness Books

We love DK Eyewitness books, as they are a wealth of knowledge. This series of books are good educational resources. It comes in handy when doing homework, research projects, improving reading of reluctant readers and English as a Second Language students. Importantly these books satisfy the minds of curious children, as it answers their questions.

The Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless Planer #DIY tool

Dewalt Max Brushless Planer
We do a lot of DIY projects using wood and have a decent collection of tools to get the job done. The latest addition to our tools is the Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer. A planer is a really useful tool to have, as it has lots of varying uses. The DEWALT DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer we are using is the cordless version, and it comes as a bare tool without any batteries. Since, most of our power tools are Dewalt we already have batteries to go with them. It is always best to use 3 Ah batteries or greater, so there is enough power to get the job done.

When we think of Yard Art, we think of sidewalk chalk. However, this year we enjoyed spraying chalk! We found this to be a fun way to decorate and show some creativity in the yard. Both adults and children in our home enjoyed spraying with Rust-Oleum® Yard Art Spray Chalk.

The Art of Weaving

weaving wool
Weaving is a craft I remember doing as a child using ribbons, construction paper, and wool. My daughter started enjoying weaving about four years ago when she did an activity at Michaels, and when she made the scarf using the Weaved Threadz kit. From a young age, my daughter has weaved using wool, yarn, thread, and once on vacation we used leaves from a coconut tree. We find weaving to be a relaxing meditative craft that is fun and the end results are rewarding.

Oreck’s Home Cleaning Solution

oreck air response
Oreck's Air Response air purifier with DustSense technology sets it apart from other purifiers in the market. We really like that it can automatically monitor, detect and respond to dust particles and odour in a home, which helps improve air quality within the home. One of the best features we love is not needing to control the settings once we keep the air purifier in auto mode. Auto mode allows DustSense technology to monitor and detect the amount of particles in the air, which automatically senses and responds to deliver cleaner air. This takes the guesswork out.

Branching Narrative Episodes on Netflix

Netflix launches the first "branching" narrative episode, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, in which the viewer gets to decide where to take the story next. Children have the opportunity to make choices and create non-linear adventures that will lead to two pre-determined main storylines. Buddy Thunderstruck (July 14) and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout (next year) will be added to the "branching" narrative episodes.
