A Day in the Life of a Mermaid

Today’s mermaid music is:




I’ve mentioned my love of Tai Chi and most of you know my secret mermaid persona. Yesterday I picked up the new catalog for Tucson Parks and Recreation’s fall program and found a perfect marriage of water and Tai Chi—just right for a mermaid.



I called and signed up right away—there’s more to mermaid exercise than just swimming.

A mermaid’s skin needs care and attention—all that swimming about in the salty sea, y’know. Naturally this calls for Mermaid Lotion, a recipe found in a library book years ago (I don’t remember the book title but this was the actual name of the recipe). This takes a bit extra effort but is a wonderful product. My ingredients come from the local New Life Health Center.



It’s been a busy day; now it’s time for a nap in my beach dollhouse. A new addition is an embroidered linen bedside rug from A Touch of Fancy.

I've a great love for tai chi as well. I've written about it frequently on my blog, but have been away from classes for almost a year. Now, I'm yearning to pick it up again as I don't practice on my own very well. How wonderful to combine two of your loves in one activity!

How fun! I must pass that recipe onto my daughter. She has been having a rough time finding products for her baby that doesn't have petroleum products in them. Thanks :-)

I "met" you through your dollhouse pics on flickr! It is the nicest dollhouse I have ever seen, I wish I could shrink and live in it.
Great little rug!

That looks like such a fun class! I'm going to have to try to find moss to make the lotion. What a fabulous rug, did you make it.

hunnybunny said...

Oh I just read you didn't make the rug! Oops that's what happens when a bunny doesn't get any sleep, sorry.
