Welcome to my blog ~For Heart and Home~. Thank you to my dear friend Linda from New York who took the pictures I sent her and made this beautiful banner for me. I visualized what I wanted it to look like and she made it happen. That is my sister and I as youngsters and yes, that is the home I grew up in during the 40's and 50's. Right about now, you are all probably saying, my goodness she is old. I am vintage, just like fine old lace. Thank you also to my good friend Debbi, from Oregon who answered questions non stop while I was trying to navigate the workings of the blog world. What is so wonderful is that friendships can reach across the miles and even tho we have never seen each other in person - through the wonders of the computer, we have developed that bond. Also, a big thank you to my good friend Mona also from New York, who often helps me after I have totally screwed something up on the computer. I feel very Blessed to have you all as my friends. Thank you and I hope everyone enjoys my blog. I know I will.

It has been one of the most beautiful November days in memory today. Blue sky and very warm. I am sure we will pay for this wonderful weather in a week or two with below zero temperatures and swirling snow. Life in the Great White North - you gotta love it.

I am anxiously awaiting the US elections tomorrow as I have been following all of the debates and of course, have my opinion as to who I would choose. Darn - I don't get a vote. What a milestone this election will produce - either way it will change American history and my hope for my American friends is that it helps your economy and gives people hope for a better tomorrow.

Our Canadian elections came and went with hardly a whimper - no big hoop la and no big changes. Some times the more things change the more they stay the same, so maybe there was change and I missed it.

Well - I have got to get to bed as I will be up late tomorrow watching the election results. Should be interesting.
