WWCS Package

Lesley was my partner and what a wonderful partner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry it took me so long to post my days were lost with the holiday. I did not even get on the computer to check email. I was very spoiled and want to make my socks now. The coffee is not pictured because my husband had become addicted to it and it was almost gone and he threw away the bag. But it was free trade holiday spice very tasty. The lotion she gave me is also not there already next to my bed. She made the project bag that everything is laying on. I got a ball of opal sock yarn for my first pair of socks. And an awesome travel mug I have used often good that it is a tall mug because I had to put it in the picture in use. My DH wants to know when the next coffee swap is he thought this was the best swap I have been in!!! Lesley was a wonderful partner and spoiled me so well and kept in contact. We also have little boys a month a part.

There are still kind and giving people out there

I went to pick my 11 year old up at school today it was getting late so I went to Subway to get lunch. So I ordered subs for us all to share, and my 11year old a slurpee (sp). Well when I got the check out I found out they did not take discover card the only card I have. So I had to tell the girls we would have to go somewhere else where they took my card. Well Rachel got all upset she said she was so hungry and that she did not even eat breakfast.

So I am leaving and the manager comes up to me to tell me where an atm machine is and I said that would not help me since I did not have my atm card with me. I again apologized for them making food that I could not pay for. I was almost at the door and she catches up to me to tell me that a person in the subway wanted to buy my children and myself lunch. i finally gave in. We went back I kept saying thank you. and of course the person wanted to be anonymous . So when the food was rung up there was $7.86 left I told the cashier to put it in their tip jar. She was amazed.

Then as we are eating the manager comes up again and says that the same person wanted to buy my kids each a cookie. Will it ever end.

I know I should not be ashamed but I know there are people out there that need this meal more than my kids and myself. But it just shows you how caring and unselfish people can still be. It makes you see that the Christmas spirit is still living in people.

Topic of The Week
Last weeks topic, we wanted to know what is your favorite activity during the "Wintery" months. Please post what would be the perfect vacation during the Winter Season? Would rather you head to the beach, to escape all the cold weather or want to pack your ski's and head to the mountains. You tell us what vacation you prefer during the Winter Season.

I would love both. I love going to the beach. But my family loves to ski so that would be great also.

For many people, Winter is a time of cold weather and snow - and many fun outdoor activities that can only be enjoyed during those times! What's YOUR favorite activity in Winter, and is it even outdoors??

Our family loves to ski. My two daughters are actually learning to ski this year they are so excited. Randy is going to snowboard this year. After you are cold from sking a cup of coffee is so nice in the lounge.
