Favorite Things - September

I bet you thought I forgot, yes??? HA!!!

My first fav this month is a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). This is a highly effective form of pain relief using electrical pulses. The TENS unit pads are placed on or near the pain area. Soothing pulses are sent via the tens unit pads through the skin and along the nerve fibres. The pulses suppress pain signals to the brain. TENS also encourages the body to produce natural pain killing chemicals called Endorphins and Encephalins! I know, a lot of "big words", but let me tell you - it works!!! I tweaked my neck last week and following my FREE treatment by my DPT daughter (thankssomuch E!!) we slapped this on and i have been so much better!!! Look it up!! Next I have to say this little item is a lifesaver!! We have a lab (that is terribly spoiled and sleeps inside) and two cats living in the house, along with hardwood flooring and this little vac is small, lightweight and makes for a quick & simple clean up!

I previously boasted about a (GASP) boxed wine as a fav, so to redeem myself I am sharing this gem with you! Seems that lately several wineries are testing out blends - and this one will not dissapoint. This wine is bottled locally in Oakville, near the famed Napa Valley. French style and the grenache adds a slight fruity flavor.

Oops...think I clinked on the wrong thing. I was looking at the paintings that your mom painted. They are so beautiful...although the vacuum in the above post is nice as well, it doesn't quite compare. :)
