I originally saw this poem shared over at A Magical Childhood but I just had to share it here on my blog as well for those of you who may not have seen it :) I have no problem admitting that I don't do a whole lot of dusting and that's because we've got a whole lot of living to do instead *grin*.
How about you?
DUST IF YOU MUST
Dust if you must but wouldn't it be better
To paint a picture or write a letter,
Bake a cake or plant a seed.
Ponder the difference between want and need.
Dust if you must but there's not much time,
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
Music to hear and books to read,
Friends to cherish and life to lead.
Dust if you must but the world's out there
With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will not come around again.
Dust if you must but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go and go you must,
You, yourself, will make more dust.
Remember, a house becomes a home when
you can write "I love you" on the furniture....
With all of the fun in the sun going on right now it's that time of year when we all pull out our sunscreen and start coating our children in it, but do you know if your sunscreen is safe or not? Many of the popular brands seen on shelves are loaded with harmful carcinogens and I came across the handiest little widget over at Non-Toxic Kids that lets you put in what sunscreen brand you are currently using and find out how it scores from 0 ~ the safest all the way up to 10 ~ which you'll want to avoid like the plague *grin*.
Another blog has also shared a review on 3 sunscreens that are available here on the island and some tips on what you should be looking for when you gazing at the endless choices in sun protection :)
The sunscreen that we have in the cupboard turned out to be rated a 5 so it was smack dab in the middle of not bad & run shreeking in horror *grin* but I think we'll be looking for a new one the next time we head into the city :)
