Snow Day & Peace

It snowed TEXAS! Ruby and I had a great time playing in it. It was the first time for both of us to see snow, and it was awesome. The previous few days were icy and windy, the kind of cold that rips your skin off. The cold we had yesterday was different. You still had to bundle up, but it was just plain cold. I didn't feel like I wanted to run back inside ;)

Today I finished up my peace pens for our Etsy Peace Swap. I also made one extra for the basket of Peace items we plan to sell for charity. We haven't chosen a charity yet, but my suggestion is Peace Action. I think we will end up picking one that is international so everyone will feel included. I added a quote about peace to go with my pen:

"Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man."
-Muhatma Gandhi

Oooo, snow is wonderful! I might be biased- I live in WI. *grins* =^.^=

And that is a beautiful quote.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Snow is great, as long as I can unpark my car! ;)

Thanks again for the pen, and thanks for the plug in the Greek flag post! Don't forget about our blog! Also, our podcasts are now being broadcast on another Internet radio station - Upstart Radio!

Sorry about dropping out of the chat last night - I was teaching Jared how to podcast. ;)

Hope to chat Thursday... we're all ready to dissect Bush's State of the Union! :)
