A Few Things

If you haven't noticed, I've been experimenting with background, font, and layouts with my blog.  I'm getting ready for my big debut on my own domain.  It's more complicated than I thought it would be...but the IT experts assured me that it would be worth it.  You can still find me here until I figure all of this out.

On another note, thank you so very much to those of you who have donated items to St. Gianna's maternity home.  I know how much your gifts will be appreciated.  I will be accepting donations until December 15th, and will ship donations boxes on December 16.  Hopefully, we can touch a whole lot of kids and mommies who so desperately need help.  Still needed are bathrobes (for the expectant mothers), aluminum foil, baggies, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, stamps, and gift cards (for groceries, supplies, etc).  Please consider helping these local women and children.  You can read more about St. Gianna's here.

Murray and I had our monthly 'date day' today.  Our special time together always includes breakfast out, a bit of shopping, lots of game playing, movies, books, puzzles, hot chocolate, popcorn and tons of snuggles.  He exhausts me, but it's so worth it.  These days are my favorite...I will cherish them forever. I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that as much as I love these days, I still look forward to nap time.  Which I'm off to now.  Because after that, it's time to play in the snow.

Marie, thanks for the sweet and thoughtful comment on my blog this morning. I LOVE the experimentation with blog backgrounds and can't wait to see what's next! And I love the St. Gianna Maternity home. We have so many donations going on here right now, but I will see what I can pull together by that date, okay? Hugs, Roxane

No worries, Roxane. I know everyone is busy fundraising this time of year, so I understand. I'm thinking of having another drive this summer when people aren't so strapped. I'll send what I collect now, and try again in a few months.

You are welcome for the comment. I just loved the post, as usual.

Have a super weekend! I'm off to a movie. I haven't been to the movies since "Tangled" came out, so I'm pretty excited. It's a gift!

Snow? Good luck getting to your own domain. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Yes, SNOW! Thankfully, we've had a very mild winter here, but we know it's coming. If my husband didn't love all things winter, I wouldn't be living on the tundra. I hate snow and cold weather. Oh, the sacrifices we make for the ones we love. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
