I'm not one to regularly endorse products on my blog, but this airborne stuff is incredible! It's this little effervescent tablet packed with cold fighting vitamins and herbs. Just plop it in a cup of hot water and drink. It comes in a few different flavours too: apple cider, lemon-lime, orange, and pink grape-fruit. I've been drinking 2 tabs a day this week and I feel great. I don't know why it's not available in Canada, but it should be. I'm afraid that if airborne doesn't make it's way to the shelves of Shoppers Drug Mart before my work visa expires, I might just have some explaining to do at Canada customs when the border guards open up my trunk and find it fully loaded with bubbly herbal effervescence. It'll be worth the hastle though for these miraculous little tablets could literally save a singer's entire career.
I had to sit at the border for an hour yesterday morning because of the Easter Monday traffic. (I guess some Canadians still think it's worth while making a trip across the border to do some shopping at Target:) The Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron is really lovely but I've never been a big fan of huge bridges. Whenever I travel across I imagine my car skidding on a wet or icy patch and me careening over the side of the bridge and plunging straight into the St.Clair River. Let's just say that I'm always relieved when I make it to the border guards. Needless to say, the hour wait on the bridge yesterday was long and a little nerve-racking. I found it to be especially "comforting" when a transport truck would zoom by in the truck lane causing the entire bridge to gently bounce a few times. :) I did come to an interesting point on the bridge though. It was when I was literally sitting right on the US/Canada border for a few minutes. The front end of my car was in the US and the back end was in Canada, but I was right on the line. It was weird to be on the line. Where is one exactly when they are on the line? I'd say that for a few minutes yesterday I was on a bridge in nowhereland. I guess bits and parts of me were technically sitting in both countries. My feet and legs were definitely resting comfortably on the break and clutch which were in the States, I'm pretty sure though that my heart was in Canada where it will always be. Ahhh, True patriot love:)
These are the Sketchers that my parents bought me for my birthday, they are the same comfy plastic material as crocs but let's face it, they are way cuter. Those who regularly read my blog will recall my utter dislike of Crocs http://divasvoice.blogspot.com/2006/06/croc-of-ugliness.html (At this point in time It may be necessary for me to clarify, that even "Mary Jane" Crocs do not have the Diva stamp of approval. Even though they are better than the clogs, they are clunky and chunky like the originals.) My new Sketchers on the other hand are dainty and cute yet practical and cushy. It's nice to know that some shoe companies do understand that comfortable can be cute. Yaaay Sketchers!!
The Magnolia tree outside of the office is starting to bloom. Ever since I arrived here in Novemeber I've been waiting for the day that the tree would blossom. Whenever I walk by the tree I'm always reminded of this quote by Anais Nin:
" And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
I suspect that when I arrive back here after Easter, the tree will be in full bloom. I can't wait.
