Giving Tuesday - December 1st

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.

Sunday Stealing: Consider Yourself

This week's Sunday Stealing was stolen from the Sunday Stealing archives.
1) Of the various cultures, ethnicity or nationalities you belong to, which most strongly do you consider yourself? Caucasian American

2) Is there a culture you cannot claim heritage from but which you feel quite close to? None that I can think of.

3) What's one language you wish you knew fluently? Spanish

4) If you could move anywhere in the world and be guaranteed a job, etc., where would you go? Somewhere warm, like Florida.

5) If you had a time machine, and could witness any one event without altering or disturbing it, what would you want to see? The very first Superbowl.

6) Have problems sleeping? Every night

7) Are you free with your feelings? Not really

8) What is the one outfit/piece of clothing/accessory you own that makes you feel incredibly good whenever you wear it? Why? My yoga pants because they are very comfortable.

9) What do you do to make yourself feel better when you're in a funk? Play video games.

10) Has anyone ever surprised you in a way that let you know you were special? How? I have a friend (Rose) that sends me cute cards via snail mail...those cards make my day.

11) When you are having a "good day," how do you spread the happiness to others? I am way more talkative and draw people into the conversation.

12) What is one thing that puts you in a bad mood, no matter how good you were previously feeling? Seeing/reading/hearing about an animal or child being abused.

13) Would you rather live in a world with or without technology such as computers, cars, airplanes, bombs? I prefer to live in a world with technology, but would prefer there were no bombs or other bad things.

14) If you had to live without either heating in your house or air conditioning, which one would you keep? I would keep the heat.

15) If you had to own five dogs, what kind would you get? I am not picky about what kind of dogs they would be.  I would adopt from the local shelter and would be happy with whatever breed they are.

Camera Critters: Grandma and Ruby

On Thanksgiving Day we spent the day at my mother-in-law/father-in-law's house.
Shelby loves her Grandma and Grandpa. In this first photo Shelby was hiding under the dining room table to be as close to her Grandma as possible.  
 In this second photo, Shelby was giving her fur-cousin, Ruby a kiss.  
It was a fun day at Grandma's and the food was awesome.
Shelby slept all the way home!

Breakfast and Then A Nap

The day before Thanksgiving, Shelby was up early since her human had to leave early for a doctor's appointment.  She had a nice breakfast, went potty then went straight to her bed for a nap!
