This 'N' That

It's Tuesday evening as I write this post!  
I am so excited, because tomorrow I get to meet a blogging friend!  
Shelia of Note Songs lives in Galveston, TX less then an hour away from my Mom's house.  We had hoped to meet last time I was in TX, but Mom was too ill for me to leave her for several hours.  This visit Mom is in great health so Shelia and I are meeting TOMORROW!
If you haven't visited Shelia's blog you should!  She has such a fun style and always shares a song with us on each post!  I will of course have my camera and there will be photos and stories!  

The Gratitude Sunday link party here at A La Carte, came out of a challenge I did with my friend Mary of Redo 101.  We did a gratitude post each day of November and it was life changing for Mary and I both.  I started the Gratitude Party but have found it difficult to continue it and was considering ending it.  Today Mary has decided she will host a Gratitude Weekly party on Friday.  I could not be happier and will close my party and join her's!  Please check out this new linky party that will start this Friday, March 22nd.  Mary is a wonderful person and I have enjoyed getting to know her better!  I hope you will all join us,  
Gratitude Can Change Your Life!

I was so upset to learn that Google Reader will close down in July.  I love using a reader that way I do not miss any of your posts!  I and many others were looking for a reader and who do I hear about but BLOGLOVIN!  It is GREAT!  They will transfer your Goggle Reader list to Bloglovin and so far I have found it easy to use.  I know they have had lots of new sign ups and I recommend you consider it if looking for a new Reader.  I put a  button on my blog to follow with Bloglovin!
(no compensation for this just sharing my personal experience)

I am missing my Georgia family and friends.  Today Tiger was saying 'Grandma come see Tiger now?' so they called me to tell me they missed me!
I love that little one so much! 
Here he is having breakfast 'coffee' with Dad!

I'm joining Kathe for
Your Gonna Love It

Wishing You JOY,

Oh, I'm so jealous you are going to meet a fellow blogger, Linda. Of course, I'm THRILLED for you. Have a blast.

Loved all the photos, including the one of Tiger.

So is the gratitude party going to run on Fridays?

Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday. Susan

How fun! There are so many blog friends I'd love to meet in person. If I become a millionaire....yeah, uh huh....I'll hire a huge bus and go from state to state and town to town and we'll all ride around and have a blast! Have a great time with Sheila, Linda!!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I like Google reader too. It's wonderful for a blogspot. How fun to meet Shelia. I still plan to make some of her sweet Christmas houses.

Oh I can't wait to hear/ see all about your visit w/ Sheila Linda! How exciting!! Love the picture of Tiger :-)

Pam said...

How fun to get to meet her! BTW, I signed up for both Bloglovin and Feedly, so I'll follow you on both. I've actually had Bloglovin for a while and just was so used to using Google Reader that i just never fully embraced it.

Shelia said...

OH, Linda, this was so sweet of you to mention me today. I had just the best time with you! Sorry about the cake! :(
Thank you for my gifts and I'll have us posted soon! You totally made my week!
You are the sweetie,
