From Summer...

...in New Orleans this weekend

...to the prediction of snow flurries tomorrow in New York that I hear on the television set in the background. Come what may in the morning I am basking in the memories of a wonderful time in New Orleans. This was my fifth visit -- yes, I love this city -- and another great time. We had beignets at Cafe du Monde, which was the top of my list, walked all through the French Quarter and and had a fabulous lunch at Commander's Palace in the Garden District. These were things I've done before, but I added new things to my list of favorite things to do and I will be blogging about them in the next few weeks. This trip had been scheduled for last year, but Hurricane Sandy and our trip happened just about the same time and all of the flights from New York were cancelled.  

This is going to be a fun week and I'm looking forward to some great surprises to share with you. One small change...I'm extending the giveaway for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital until next Sunday, November 17. I will announce the winner on Monday, November 18.

I hope you had a great weekend and have a great week. As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourselves.

Snow came to northern Ohio yesterday. It's still here today and only 26 degrees this morning. Glad you had a great trip and made some wonderful memories.
