pomegranates, calendars, and Sigg info
I love pomegranates. And they're on sale this week - buy two, get two free. So I got four and have eaten two already this evening. Yup, two whole pomegranates. Yikes. They're not perfectly ripe yet (that didn't stop me) and you can see in the second photo that some of the seeds look like ice cubes, in the sort of exploding patterns in the fruit. Mmmm, tangy.
Since I loved this year's so much, I ordered my 2010 Fieryeyed calender as soon as the shop reopened earlier this week. If I had the need and extra cash hanging around to surround myself with calendars on every available surface, I would buy this one. And maybe this one. These tiny little adorable pages, too. Oh, and this one - so pretty. And this one is super fun, too. This botanical one is also right up my alley. And despite the misplaced apostrophe in the title, which I cannot ignore, this calendar is so pretty. I don't think one can ever have too many calendars, so if you're inclined to buy me one, I won't complain!
I happened to overhear someone last week talking about exchanging her old Sigg bottle in for a new one at Yarmouth Natural, because of potential problems with the liners containing trace amounts of BPA. Which is a problem, and I'm a bit perturbed by the whole thing, especially since I trusted that their trade secret liner was truthfully BPA -free in the first place. Anyway. Of course, I asked the person I overheard for the scoop, since we have a few of our own that we tote around everywhere. It's a voluntary exchange program, and many retailers are taking Siggs with old liners (they're kind of a coppery brown colour inside) back and exchanging them for new ones with a BPA-free liner. Or you can send yours in directly to Sigg, but it has to be before October 31. Here's the scoop, from Sigg. And pictured above are two of my snazzy new bottles. I'm not sure if Yarmouth Natural is still taking them back, (I think last week may have been the last week) but you can certainly give them a call to find out.
That was a bit rambly and scattered - can you tell I'm excited that it's the weekend? Have a lovely one!
