(5) Things we love…#77

Posted in Things We Love

sorry we are tired signI knew the day would come when this sign, from Austin Kleon’s blog – always a source of inspiration – would come in handy. It pretty much says it all about the mood on this side of the sofa. To fight off emotional tiredness, I have been revelling in things that make me feel good.

One. Once a diva….Can you think of many contemporary divas that aptly fit the definition? Lady Gaga? Nah…Madonna? Not quite. Not even Beyoncé and her too many selfies come close. But watch this video of Aretha Franklin at the Kennedy Center Honors and you will be reminded of what a diva looks and sounds like: the floor length mink coat nobody wears anymore, the little sparkly clutch, what she does with that coat….it made me smile. And then there is that voice….

10 Ways You’re Making Your Life Harder Than It Has To Be

I am guilty of quite a few.

funny sealFour. Funny animals on the internet are always a good way to cheer oneself up. These photos, by professional photographers, competed in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The first prize went to the rush our rodent but they will all make you smile.

udderly smoothFive. In the interest of keeping my skin from being completely fried by radiation therapy, I have been trying all kinds of lotions, specific to the treatment or otherwise. Udder Smoothly has so far come up the winner. Because it’s fragrance free, it makes the skin “udderly” smooth, it has a reasonable price point and a fun packaging, this one is going to stick around long after radiation is over. Highly recommended.

  1. Carole King’s face! What joy. Those thought catalogue pieces are spot on. And …. whoever thought you would one day wear a cream for udders.

  2. We sell what I suppose is a similar product in my pharmacy! It’s by MooGoo, and we’ve had a lot of patients come in, saying that their radiologists/oncologists have recommended it to them. Glad you’ve found something that works well for you!

    #3 and #4 made me smile, especially #3! I think I’ve found a new site to follow…

      I will have to check out Moo Goo. Every friend I know who has gone through radiation has given their recommendation. Funny, they are all different. And I bought them all, even the Italian ones you can’t find in this country. I might have skin lotion for some time to come!

  3. That is a good cream, a friend of mine used it during her radiation. Also aquaphor, I think it was called.

      Yes, it is aquaphor indeed. The oncologist gave it to me in case the skin gets a major irritation. Still early days – 22 more treatments to go..

      Yes, I have an arsenal – keeping the real aloe for when the itching and burn start in earnest. Thank you!
