Cubby is supervising Daddy's work and
fills the reservoir of the tree stand.
And I received two packages this afternoon. The first one I opened was from FLARTOPIA. I love this lady's blog and going there just makes me hungry as all get out. For the last month, I have enjoyed reading her blogs about a kitten named Smokey they fostered but, her gardening and cooking posts are too yummy. I happily gain about 5 pounds just reading her posts. This gift box was from a blog giveaway I won by answering a Can You Guess post. OMG! these herbs smelled just delightful, I plan on using them this week and may just buy a goose for the oven instead of a turkey.
My next treasure was from 'Over the Pond,' at My Brother Andrew blog. Ms. Janet writes a beautiful blog about raising awareness for Progressive Bulbar Palsy, a motor neuron disease that her brother Andrew has. She included a very kind and touching note which I intend to treasure for years to come. Thanks for your kind words Ms. Janet!
Ms. Janet is also the sister to Big John who writes Going Gently; I adore his blog as well. (Though John often accuses me of being crazier than a box of frogs -- I enjoy his humor just the same.)
I have been following all the updates from the sales wrist bands, donations, and events which have posted from around the world. She is still raising monies to further the cause and you may find the wristbands on eBay using this item number:
'We are now selling MND wristbands on Ebay ! Andrew and Jayne spent most of yesterday sorting it all out-you can check it out , item no 220699576026.'
Today, our family will join her fight and awareness blog by posting this picture of the wrist bands on our Christmas tree.
STAY WARM, ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
