American Greetings and Kraft Foods = Feeding America

Monday, December 14, 2009

Hi Spark Friends,
A little something for you to check out that I thought was worthwhile. Send a free Holiday e-greeting card and Kraft Foods will donate meals to Feeding America. Looks like a Win-Win to me. I sent out a card to my sister and downloaded some nice recipes too boot.

I'm feeling a bit better today and my voice is coming back. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel good enough to go to a class at the gym in the morning. I feel guilty when I don't go even though I know I should be taking it easy. Go figure.

With all this down time sitting on the couch, I have been busy planning to a host party on New Years Day. New Years Day is on a Friday and most people don't make plans for that day so I'm thinking I'll invite a few friends over and we will have a "regifting party". Everyone can bring items they have on hand that they don't want or need (must be clean and in working order) and for each item they bring they will receive a tag with their name on it. They can then go shopping and place a tag on items that other people bring that they want. If several people want the same item they can up the ante and put on multiple tags (two tags trumps one and three tags trumps two, etc etc) ~ then in the event of a tie you put the tags in a bowl and have a drawing to see who wins. All unclaimed items will be donated to charity. Seems like a Win-Win getting rid of unneeded stuff, maybe picking up something you would like to have, and giving stuff to charity. I'm thinking it will be a fun evening and a nice way to start the New Year.

Hope you are all having a great day. I still can't find my red Christmas Balls which I must have put in a very safe place! I'm sure I'll find them after Christmas LOL!

Hugs, Rhonda

    Great idea - I might try that some time. Feel better & don't feel guilty about resting (I did the same in September and ended up pushing myself into a pneumonia - not worth it!). You will be back on track soon enough - for now, warm liquids, foods with vitamin C, and rest.

    Thanks for the link. Glad you're feeling better and putting your down time toward something good. I've been to parties like that before and they are a hoot.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Yeah, I did that too, the Christmas card and recipes, I thought it was pretty neat, and those red balls, well, if you are anything at all like me, you may never see them again, I just have no idea what I do with things I put away
