Are you Feeling the Cold Today?

I walked my dog this early morning with a big heavy sweater, my apres ski boots and ski jacket on and feeling rather toasty. Imagine how silly I felt when I get to the computer and find out so many bloggers are experiencing freezing weather and really have to bundle up their kids so they won't get frostbite. Then my sister calls and tells me my niece and nephew are home today for a snow day.

My blood may be thin but my heart is warm and thick. Take care everybody. Bundle up your little bundles of joy. Stay warm by making a fire and cuddle up with a nice warm blanket.

I know, why don't you pack up and come for a visit to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. Seriously....

Timeless Bliss is My Second Home

Today, my first post is up as a contributing writer for the fabulous on-line magazine called Blissfully Domestic, in the Timeless Bliss section! I am very excited to be part of this exciting group of talented women writers. Blissfully Domestic was a finalist in this year's 2008 Weblog Awards, too!

If you have never visited the site, you should go right now. There are sections for financial bliss, kid bliss, military bliss....you name it, it's covered. They say, "whether you're looking for inspiration-budgeting-cooking-crafting-health and fitness-family-empty nesting tips-relationship advise or solace, you'll be able to consider our Timeless Bliss writers your wise aunt-older sister or best friend!" I am honored to be a part of the BD family.

A special thank you goes out to Cindi of Moomettesgram's Musings, the editor for our section, Timeless Bliss. Now maybe none of the other writers selected are like me and have trouble doing the simplest of tasks on the web. But Cindi has been so patient as I learn how to maneuver around in Word Press and follow the BD guidelines. She is amazing because she has several blogs of own, is the managing editor for Timeless Bliss and has an online job and a family. Can you say "Super Woman"?

Now, do me a favor and go over to my little post and give me some comment love, okay? It will make this empty nest Mom feel a little more at ease in my new second home....
