Stocking Stuffers

How about some stocking stuffers? Lynda Jones, VisionAware peer advisor, recommends a blush stick, saying “I roll it around over the apple of each cheek, applying the same amount of pressure and going around the same number of times. I then spread it out following the top and bottom of my cheek bones. It’s working great!” Amazon has several brands available. Kitchen timers are a good choice and can be used for all kinds of tasks that don’t include cooking!
