A Few Cool Things to Check Out...

Please see next post for today's HYCCT card....

I want to share with you a few things I have come across while catching up on my bajillion emails from last week. I'm down to less than 100! woo hoo! hey, it doesn't take much to excite me these days! ;)  I'm happy 'The Walking Dead' started its new season even though I won't be able to watch it until next year when it comes out on DVD! pathetic, aren't I?!

first up is a HUGE blog candy opportunity over at Bev's blog, Bearly Mine. you should see all of the great things you have a chance to win! wowza!

have you been to Blitsy yet? every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday new items are added to the store for one week only. prices are amazing and the shipping is really fast. be sure to stop by if you get a chance. the latest things added include Tim Holtz distress special edition inks & refills (thank you, Lisa, for introducing these to me!!), Cosmo Cricket, and Spellbinders.

next is a great opportunity to do something REALLY nice for some people who often get overlooked these days - the elderly living in nursing homes. Vera Yates is heading up a holiday card drive now through Nov. 30. Please pop by her blog for more information and consider sending along a card or 2. There are some neat prizes being offered, too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

You've been on my mind!! I had to say Goodbye to my son, Brian and his new wife Meghan, yesterday afternoon as they left for the long trip to California.

They will be making their new home and have new careers paths waiting for their arrivial. They are driving across country as their Honeymoon trip, too and plan to visit lots of freinds on the way.

On the upside, if there is any where you kids move so far away -- I did adopt their sweet little Dog (Scout) a wonderful Dachshund, who has now been with us, for the last week or so. He's great and he will keep me busy, so I don't think of them and miss them, quite so much.

I know how you felt with you son going away...but I know this is their dream, so that makes me happy. I hope to go out to visit sometime after the New Year...maybe when it's very cold here and I need some warm weather.

In the meantime...I'm praying for you and your boys too! Life is never easy, and really not what we hoped and dreamed of, at times!

Big Hugs...and love,
