Tiny Pet Peeve with Tim’s

March 19th, 2016 | Category: Now that's Peculiar.,Ponderings

Hello Dear Friends.

I’m not a whiney person but some things just bother me.

SO I pull into Tim’s today and I’ve noticed lately that when you order a drink and a breakfast sandwich they say “I’ll make that a combo” and I was a little surprised as they usually say “Do you want to make this a combo”. It’s a little confusing because “$0” shows up on the screen.

I didn’t really want a combo but I thought well if its free why not add some unwanted pounds.

Curious as I am I said to the cash person “am I paying extra for a combo?” which she says “yes $0.40”. I’m like I never asked for that and she’s like sorry and that they have been saying that forever. To which I said “naa that’s not true”.

I said ok this time take the money for your tip jar but you won’t get me again.¬† Funny part is they left in the hashbrowns which I threw out because I really didn’t want them in the first place and maybe just maybe I was a little peeved.

I’ve boycotting restaurants for less than this.

Totally on the big picture this is silly but I’m not going to let anyone push me around.

Friday the 13th

January 13th, 2012 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Good morning everyone!

I hope the world is treating you the wonderful way you are meant to be treated! yippy! Life is good sometimes isn’t it?

I had a rude awakening this morning which made me realize that it was February the 13th real fast.

As you know I have been following Ellen Whitehurst’s many fun things to do and one of the things she says is to get a red sheet and put it between the mattress to create a wonderful relationship! Now Bobby and I already¬†have an amazing relationship but when¬† I saw those sexy red satin sheets at wallmart I said why not and I thought it was a sign too!

Now I don’t know if you have even slept on satin sheets but they are really cold and slippery!

The cashier at wallmart said oh I could never use those as my feet are so rough that I would have a constant noise going on at which time Bobby and I looked at each other with the thought “too much information” on our minds.

We braved on and bought them anyway.

Now we are flannel people, we really are. The warmer the better so this took some getting used to. I believe in Ellen and we still have them on the bed. Not sure what I’m going for as I’m already married to an Aries (wink wink) but I thought it would be fun!

Now Bobby goes to work REALLY early so usually this isn’t a problem but this morning I decided to get up earlier and our house is very small so the bed takes up most of the bedroom so the bed is against the wall. I get up and roll over Bobby only to put my knee on the satin sheet and bonk right on the ground. I just missed poor Bandit!

Startled the h*ll out of me, Bobby jumped up thinking he had to go to the hospital with me, Bandit had a look of relief on his face and he knew what would have happened should I have landed on him! I was perfectly fine thank goodness but I truly am contemplating putting the red sheet in between the bed as she suggested and putting the ole’ flannels back on! It’s just safer!

Then doesn’t Bobby on his way to work whack his head on a shelf we have!

So all in all I have to say that we have already had our Friday the 13th for 2012 and for the rest of the day only good comes to us now!

OMgoodness when looking for quotes for Friday 13th I found the following!

“If you have 13 letters in your name you will have the devils luck. Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names.” Unknown

It didn’t sit too well because my name and my husband’s name both have13 letters! yikes!¬† Ha Ha. Just yanking your chain.¬†I don’t believe that¬†at all.

¬†I only have God’s Luck and I have the wonderful Archangel Michael to support my path! Kind of interesting though isn’t it? Makes you think.

Ok here’s your quote as promised:

“If you change your bed on Friday 13th you will have bad dreams throughout the night.” Unknown.

Well that solves it its red silk sheets another night I guess.

Diamonds Are Forever

October 01st, 2011 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Good morning everyone.

Weird weather it’s like a cold wind has taken over or something.

I was flipping around on the Internet today for a brief second and something jumped out at me which is the oddest yet intriguing thing I have seen in a long time.

It’s about turning your loved ones into a diamond which you wear as jewellery. Bizarre eh?

Here’s the link I read here Diamonds.

Here’s another link Diamonds Too.

So apparently you get some ashes of your deceased loved ones (wonder what part from the ashes you are carrying around? Makes you wonder.)  (or you can do it when you are alive through hair samples) and they take it, heat it up and make a diamond. Is this legal in Canada? You wonder?

There is an Icky element to this as well as a comfort element also. Probably the euew part is taking the parts from  the body and sending it on. Once again is this legal?

The cost it says ranges from $3,000 to $25,000 and you can prearrange. I want to ask a feng shui expert what they think of this?

I have to wonder if future generations are going to just hand down the diamonds or tell the whole story here! Dear relatives you are gathered here to discuss your inheritance……in the will you get Grandma diamond and you get the pet dog, wear well dear relatives???

Also, I have to ask do these diamonds have any value except for the family? Can you sell Grandma?

Interestingly it says you can also have a pet made into a diamond on its passing too.

Something to surely think about.

Kind of gives new meaning to the phrase “Diamonds are Forever”.

(In this instance I’m with you Emma.)

P.S. Hmmmmmm how do you really know that its Grandma’s ashes and not just some diamond they have in a drawer?

Happy Bran Muffin Man

Good afternoon everyone. Welcome to The Psychic Cottage blog! So happy you popped in.

We all know that bran makes us happy (hee hee) but today I had the best surprise when I made my bran muffins.

OK I will let you in on what has been happening while the blog has been getting more space in case you are now standing there with your mouth open. I have been cooking lately and not just things that start with a T!

Big time cooking. I’m even getting excited about …..hold on……buying a new kitchenaid pot that was on sale at Canadian Tire! It’s not over yet don’t faint….and I even…….took everything out of the oven because I’m going to start using it! Ta Da!

Can you believe it? I can’t. I had some work done by a wonderful healer and something just switched inside me. It’s all good as Bobby’s niece Sahra says.

Ok back to my bran muffins. Let me brag a bit. I have been making these wonderful bran muffins and Bobby’s friends at work¬†love them. I always add three little blueberries in them to make them moist and more tastey.

Yes my family I hear you just for clarity¬†this is Sharon I haven’t sold this blog or anything. Geez.

I pull out the muffins out of the little toaster oven and this is what one of them looked like. I couldn’t stop laughing.

It reminded me of the time I found a heart in my cheerios.

Bobby wasn’t as amused as I was. I couldn’t stop laughing and I was so excited I couldn’t wait to write this blog and share my blessed bran muffin with you all.

I took him out for you to look at a different background.

Oh my Goddess he even has a little freckle on his nose!

I had an extra chuckle because I have been watching Season One of The Big C (which is like the best show ever) and in one eposide the girl says I don’t eat anything with a face. Guess she isn’t having a bran muffin then is she?

I know small things amuse small minds but I think this is the cutest thing that has happened to me in a long time.

I wonder if he will scream when I eat him! You know I’m not letting¬†anyone ¬†else eat him right? I think he’s magic.

Where was this Thing when I was Communiting?

December 12th, 2010 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Hello Everyone. Can you believe the rain? Glad it isn’t snow that’s for sure.

I was zooming around on the net and was reading this funny article about wacky gifts from Japan and found this picture and article.

I totally cracked up because I remember once I was on the go train and I was so exhausted and I fell asleep and I smashed my head on the window (whap) and everyone looked up and totally laughed at me. I was so embarrassed. Although I think if I had this hat on I would have been more embarrassed. You can even put on the front which stop is yours so they wake you up.

This article shows some fun inventions. You never know when you will need a toilet paper holder on your head for hay fever.

They are Obviously for some one Else

December 04th, 2010 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Hi Everyone.

What’s cookin?

Today Bobby bought me one of my Christmas presents as I needed boots and I wanted some funky ones. I saw at the Soft Moc Wear house a pair of the coolest Doc Marten’s that were all black with pink laces and a funny pink¬†design up the back.

I totally love them. They had them in white too with the pink but I thought I would be too hard on them.

The funny part is when we got to the cash the young pretty little girl said “well these are obviously for someone else” but if you want to get them some cream for the boot they¬†will wear better.

Ha ha ha. I said they’re¬†for me. Do you think they are too young for me? She’s like no totally cool.

How hilarious is that? I do like funky things and the funkier the better but she got me to thinking that maybe at 52 I should be acting more like 52? Then I thought na that’s what makes me me right?

Here’s a picture of my new boots. What do you think? Too young? Now I have to wear them in. Ouch. Wearing in Doc Marten’s is like painful but so worth it.

Hmmm. I just noticed when I’m taking a picture for you that it is a guitar on the back I thought it was a pretty schrollytype design? Then I looked and it is guitar hero docs? On line it appears to be some kind of video game? Yikes. I¬†think video games are¬†a total thief of time (notwithstanding my concern that our subconscious mind doesn’t have a sense of humour when we are doing these strange things)¬†should I be promoting them? ¬†I¬†think I have to go back and switch them for a pair of Dr. Scholl¬†rubber soled¬†boots, ha ha, or trade them for a pair of berkenstocks for the summer. There’s a lesson here for buying things before you think about it or maybe instead of being offended by the young girls’ comments I should have listened to her.

I wonder if I can cut off the guitar and make it into a daisy?

Oh the trouble I get into. How am I going to explain this one to Bobby? Thanks for the present but I don’t like it anymore, lol.

Wishing on a Star

July 29th, 2010 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Good morning Everyone. How are you this beautiful lovely amazing day.

Did you catch my radio show last night?

I called the producers’ bluff. He is always after me to sing or my guests to sing and he asked me once again and I thought ok you are going to get a song.

I’m not the best singer in the world which you will confirm if you listen but I gave it a go. The first thing that popped into my head was If you wish upon a star. I didn’t have the words so he wouldn’t settle for that he actually gave me the words on Skype.

Oh my there goes my radio career. Yikes.

To listen to go and onto The Psychic Cottage and the July 28th, 2010 show. It’s near the end.

I was so high from doing all my EFT exercises that I would have tried anything. I probably sounded half corked and I don’t even drink, like ever!

Totally Freaky

June 06th, 2010 | Category: Musings by Sharon,Now that's Peculiar.

Hi Everyone.

Just one more runny nose story.

Frustrated with my nose and for fear of getting a giant red nose especially when I’m in a television show this week I looked on the internet for ways to get rid of it without drugs.

Bingo I found this.

I did it once and my nose stopped running. I can’t believe it.

I’m saving it and doing it again in a few minutes.

The funny part is I don’t think I really even did it right. My nose just stopped.

I wonder where its going instead? Oh well. I’ll think about that later.
