Hi...I'm Sari...My last name is Grove 'cause I married a hot guy named Joseph Grove & took his name 'cause it is such a cool name...My maiden name is not super cool, in fact, I am not going to tell you it...I have really short blonde hair now...What happened was I picked up an injured raccoon off the road & three days later I got my very first case of lice & Joseph said that people with short hair have fewer problems with that so I cut off all my hair & dyed it because this was the worst thing I have ever encountered...But I look so neat with this new look that I am now thinking that God gave me lice just so I could try this new hairstyle...Yes, I am a silver lining optimist type person...Everything has a deeper meaning & even the bad stuff leads to good stuff & I never would have got there if that hadn't happened so I am grateful for that even though it was bad type of a person...That kind of thinking keeps me going...I like to laugh, with not at, & laughing is something I learned from my family to cherish like exercising & eating green things...Hmm...Ok, I am done for now...bedtime...I will come back to this tomorrow...

Well it's Saturday & God is in the details: 
Picture
Swanee has been wrapped in extra large clear bags & taped with green tape...Ready to travel without marring someone's cargo space with cement dust...
  So I got some important things done today:

http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/6/Tools/ShopEquipment/HandTrucksDollies/PRD~0600522P/Folding+Dolly+and+Hand+Truck.jsp?locale=en I got this hand truck dolly type thing...It was on sale last week online, but not on sale this week...So I kindly asked if I could have the on sale price & they said yes...Sale price was $39.99, regular price was $79.99, so I felt proud of my gumption...Ask & ye shall receive, seek & ye shall find...These Bible words have been speaking to me lately...


What this hand truck dolly thing means is that I can get my regular two 18 kilogram bags of Red Ribbon wild bird seed (sale price $13.99 ea), & instead of driving to Canadian Tire, I can just walk over with my dolly & put them on that...

Which leads to this: You need bungee cords really to keep things on a tilty dolly, so I spent a while in the Auto centre testing out bungee cord sizes with the bird seed bags on the dolly...I got two bungee cords for $2.49 each that criss crossed nicely...Check mark proud again for this detailed accomplishment...

Then I got the very extra largest size of clear outdoor garbage bag type things with the easy tie tops...Box of 20...Came home & went & wrapped up the Swannee sculpture & taped it all up with green tape, so that it won't cement dust up the Zipcar Ford Escape that I am going to rent to deliver the sculpture...Zipcar is so neat- you can get all different sizes & types of cars or trucks you may need...It is easy too...Totally recommend Zipcar...If you join as a business plan it's a $75 intitial fee, but then it is only $30 dollars a year per person membership- if there is more than you, like a husband...(compare with $65 a year for just little ol you personal membership)...If you plan on belonging for more than one year the business plan makes sense...Specially if you have a husband who drives too...

Oh yeah! here's the neat thing...On the way out of the store, in the parking lot, I see this sign that talks about Nitrogen instead of air in your tires...So I drive down to the Auto guys & in about half an hour & $2.99 a tire I get them to replace the air in my tires with Nitrogen, which stays filled up longer, which means better drive, better fuel mileage, & no me having to fill up air at gas stations while searching for a Loon in my pockets to pay for the air...God is in the details...(nice waiting room there too with a tv tuned to City Pulse & had a Diet blueberry iced tea while waiting- those Arizona drinks)...

Details are so neat to accomplish...Icing on the cake...Polish on the brass...Wax on the saddle...Not hard to do but make the difference between a good artist & a great artist...

To top it off my husband's electric shaver ran out while he was shaving, & he needed one little battery...As it happened, I pillaged from my electric cycling vest which lights up at night-Perfect- Now my husband loves me more, as he was able to shave right away...(Joseph loves useful way more I think than pretty...)

p.s. http://www.markrowlandsauthor.com/books.htm If you have not yet read the book called the Philospher & the Wolf by Mark Rowlands then you MUST... Everyone MUst read this book...Call me or write later to cry... Then go save the animals...This book will help to change your life, animal-wise...For the better...(If you thought you were crazy because you learned how to smoke salmon for your Husky puppy who loved smoked salmon, or you are weaving nests for swans because they look cold, then read this book to know you are not in fact crazy...

How to put NOPIN Pinterest code on your Weebly website:(this prevents people from Pinning your images)... 
 Go to:  Settings,
 Choose : search engine optimization, 
In the place called : header code,
 And in the place called: footer code,
Insert the following string of code:
<meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" />

Save
Publish
Note: for some reason this worked for me when I put the code string into both boxes, the footer code box & the header code box...But you may be able to get away with just one choice...Don't know why I couldn't...

Hi Sari,

Love the story about your haircut. Funny how one thing happens to make many other things happen. I spoke with you last night when you called about your Zipcar membership. So I am checking out your website today. I love your sense of humor. You art is great. I will send my artist daughter your link. Good luck. Hopefully, I'll get to speak with you again sometime.
