The universe is sending me spa stuff!

First! In a raffle drawing two weeks ago, I won a gift certificate for a spa manicure and pedicure.

Then! Last Monday morning I was Caller #8 -- who knows what possessed me to run to the phone, as I had a mouthful of toothpaste -- to our local news station, and won a gift certificate towards services at another local spa.

And! The moms' club I'm in had a Spa Night last Thursday, at which we all got to try various luxurious products that smelled intoxicatingly good. Or maybe that was the Pinot Grigio. In any case, when I got home, Mr. S. began singing about "de lime and de co-co-nut."

Sure, there are people who do the mani/pedi thing as a matter of routine; I am not one of 'em. I like to get a pedicure at the beginning of New England's "exposed toe" season -- roughly now, if it weren't 50 degrees out today -- and another in midsummer. So it's nice to have them in the bank, as it were.

Better than a sharp stick in the eye, no?

  1. Oh funny, you must have great kharma this week to be receiving stuff. I have that song on my iPod, I love it. Reminds me of the movie Practical Magic. So what sorts of yummy smelling stuff did you win? I'm not sure about Pinot Grigio, the few times I've had it, not so great. But like you said on my blog, I love me some yummy Merlot.

    Can I go with you to get the manicure and pedicure?
