Lion Planner

Quality post-consumer waste recycled paper, increased resistance to bleeding, rough erasing, and shading paper, durable soft faux leather cover. Monthly, weekly and daily planning sections.

 

The Lion Planner size I reviewed is 8.5 x 5.5 x 0.75 inches; it is also available in the larger letter size of 11 x 8.5.

A simple looking black faux leather cover. (also available in blue) I appreciate the attractive and simple lion logo.  

The journal binding is what I love! And is a hard thing to find as most planners have spiral bindings which I’m not a fan of.  The Lion Planner opens flat making it easy to write in. Pages are also important to me and I really appreciate the soft white color of the pages. Design layout gives plenty of space for writing. Quality paper for use with pencil, pen, and marker (if used in small areas). 

Attached are three ribbon book marks in colors black, blue, and grey. A nice touch!

Please note: This is a 6 month planner. And, it is a six-month weekday planner. Works fine for six months of Monday-Friday planning!

Pickleball athletes check this out! Pro Tec Athletics have products for the elbow and wrist, lower leg and ankle, upper leg and back, knee, and foot.

 

Ankle Sleeve – Neoprene sleeve provides snug fit, providing effective support.

Tested size M on my left ankle and I feel this sleeve had some compression although I didn’t think it provided much ankle support. Several sizes. Color black. One sleeve for either foot. (Disappointed)

PF Sleeve -The PF Sleeve is an open toe sleeve designed to alleviate conditions of Plantar Fasciitis. Includes specialized compression zones for arch and heel support.

I reviewed a size M on my right ankle over a sock during activity (not during pickleball play). I do not have plantar fasciitis but enjoyed this sleeve for the support it gives. It’s comfortably tight and it doesn’t cut off circulation. Several sizes. Color black. One sleeve for either foot. (Met my expectations)

Toe FlexorsProvides stretch to toes and forefoot area. 

Used during inactivity for just a few minutes. The foam was comfortable but firm. The stretch it provides will take time to get use to. Size medium or large. Comes as a pair. Color blue. (Still considering)

Spiky BallFirm massage ball provides deep tissue massage for the foot. 

A 3″ red ball with spiky outside. Good for circulation. I also find it a good de-stressor. It can also be used elsewhere such as calves. Made of hard plastic, not squishy. (Yes, I like this)

Shelby The Hemp Mouse Colors

Shelby The Hemp Mouse. He (or she) is made entirely from hemp fabric and filled with organically grown catnip. Assorted colors. My kitty reviewer loves it. Obviously this stuff is fresh because he could detect it was his before I even opened the box. Shelby is tough so there are many play days ahead.

Check out their line of cat toys including some made with Silver Vine and Valerian root which are cat attractants similar to catnip.

Great Scrape

It’s Eco-wonderful. It’s your grill’s new BFF. 

THE ULTIMATE BBQ CLEANING TOOL.

Made in Wisconsin. 100% hardwood.

 

I reviewed the Woody Paddle. GROOVY. This tool is easy to clean, forms to grill grates, grill and people safe, long lasting, eco, and made in the USA.

Each tool comes treated with a food safe mineral oil (butcher block oil). Reapply whenever needed. Admittedly, my previous Woody Paddle was frequently left to view the constellations when it should have been stored indoors. It proved to be a tough, useful grilling accessories, lasing 4 years. Great Scrape BBQ tools are a stylish eco alternative to the metal wire brush. A fantastic product that I highly recommend.

The Woody Paddle makes a terrific gift that can be personalized. Use code NotesFromDawn for free personalization on your Great Scrape order. Grill masters can check out all the various models, see the “how it works” video, and browse the recipes on the Great Scrape website.

I don’t know how to play real Pickleball. Can I play Pickleball Smash?

Absolutely! In fact, we’ve found Pickleball Smash to be a great way to introduce new players to the vocabulary of the sport. You will learn name of shots like dink, lob, smash, ATP, and drop shot. You will learn other important terminology like kitchen violation, poaching, and Ernies. And while a person could play Pickleball Smash without ever playing Pickleball, you might just get the desire to try out the sport once you master the card game!

Made in the design of the Vulcan V520 Control Pickleball Paddle which offers maximum control and feel, perfect for tactical players. Standard paddle shape, polypropylene core with fiberglass V-Skin surface, control grip at 4-1/4”, 7.8 oz.

I took right to this paddle. It has a comfortable grip and nice balance. All around good performance on the court. Bright colors and turtle image on this paddle stand out. It’s a paddle that definitely gets noticed.

Paddle Candy PIckleball Backpack

I love a good bag! This backpack is designed to go with your Paddle Candy paddle. Bright colors included. Not overly complicated with pockets; there are two large main areas, two small front zipper areas, and side net pockets. I can easily carry three paddles, a few balls, a jacket, hat, and the small stuff (keys, phone, ect) It has a hook to hang on the court fence. A flat bottom lets the bag sit upright and the overall size is just right for a pickleball outing.
