Surprise Swap

I didn’t plan today with the advent calendar in mind so I did a swap out. Which worked perfectly. I did indeed surprise someone with something special and I 💯% know it was truly appreciated and again that’s enough said about what I did. It’s not about me but about doing for others.

The baking that was today’s activity will wait till Thursday when I have the ENTIRE day at home. Oh how I cherish those days! It will be a busy day as there is cleaning, baking and decorating to do but that’s ok.

Today is Giving Tuesday — in it’s 12th year but it’s the first year I’ve heard of it. Not sure about the power of social media that it took that long to filter down to me but…

Here’s what I’m going to do. The advent calendar comes with a monetary end point where we donate $5/day for every day we were able to participate. I’m going to donate mine this year to a North East Paws Dog Rescue. It’s a cause that is near and dear to my daughter-in-law and my son. We’ve fostered a couple of pups and it seems like a good cause. The little guy on the left arrives tomorrow and the one on the right spent a few weeks with us this summer.
