Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? I am so excited! It's finally time for Star Wars! I am very lucky a friend of mine got us tickets to see it this Saturday and NEXT Saturday I get to see it with BOTH my sons! My older boy is flying in from Colorado and got us tickets to see it in IMAX in Philly. He is a big Star Wars fan, he even has costumes and "troops" dressed up visiting sick kids in hospitals and marching in parades. For a treat I got us all tickets to The Dark Side Bar for 12/27. I gotta pay them off slowly but its worth it, he hasn't been home in over 5 years and like was embroidered on a pillow my mom gave me when I was a young mom: Mom's Make Memories. Its true! What memories will you be making with YOUR kids and grand kids this holiday season?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? How are your holiday preparations coming along? I got all the gifts bought for my boys and Jeremy got all our outdoor lights up. This weekend is when the local fire department has Santa come and then they drive around all over town with Santa and blowing sirens and such. There are several local towns that do that. So what about you what have you got done and what still needs to be done?

Dear Friends,

Wow December is upon us already can you believe it? I have been busy decorating and shopping ( on a tiny budget its really hard to do) but I am so excited that my older son is coming to spend Christmas with us this year! He lives in Coloardo and its been many years since me and both of my sons were together on Christmas. I haven't baked cookies in years but this year I am going to, growing up there were always loads of cookies baked and many given as gifts. Its a tradition that I miss. How about you have you started and Christmas preparations yet?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? And what do you have planned for Thanskgiving and the holiday weekend? My son and I are cooking a turkey at home this year (thanks to St Marks). As of this writing I don't know whom he has invited over but we are prepared to a few. That's one thing I taught my son is to give and share with others. On Black Friday I will be running the Thrift Store and the rest of the weekend probably putting up the Christmas decorations. What will YOU be doing?

Dear Friends,
So how is everyone's week going? I've been crazy busy working on getting donations for the holiday season at St Marks. We give out turkeys and all the fixings for those in need. We do a coat drive to make sure everyone has a coat and hats and gloves and scarves and also the big one the toy drive so all the kids get toys and gifts for the holidays. All this giving takes a lot of donation solicitation. I got inspired and have been posting what I call St Marks Stories on the Thrift Store Facebook Page that I made for them. Those have been getting lost of attention but sometimes they want to help just the people in the story. That's a nice thing but St Marks is like a mom with 100's of hungry kids we can't take and feed just one or two of them.....EVERYONE needs us....
So what about you what have you been up to this week?

Dear Friends,
So how was everyone's week? Are you as happy as me that the elections are over? Neither my choice for governor nor mayor won but I am trying to remain positive. Pretty much thinking I am going to have to move out of here eventually and glad that I did not buy a home yet. So sad as I love it here.
And how are you liking this cold air? Seems to me it just snuck up on us. Usually NJ has its first frost by the end of Oct but so far we are still waiting for that so we have had it lucky, we may get it friday night though so bring your plants in if you haven't already. I am just praying for a mild winter. What about you?

Dear Friends,

So how was everyone's week? November is here and the air is getting chilly. Its also election time, are you ready to go out and choose who you want to win? I am really surprised when I hear people say they still haven't decided who they are going to vote for. In our town the Mayor is up for re-election and its a very heated race, my mind was made up months ago! How about you do you know how you are going to vote? Do you vote? If you do not why not?
