Day 10- MusiCares and Hot Chocolate

Let's see if you can follow this logic.  I wrote about my iPod on this day last year and how it helped us to get through the looooong drive home from Michigan.  Okay, maybe it's more like looong, not looooong, but you get the point.  One of the songs that helped us through was "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz.  Love that guy.  I looked up information about which charities Mr. Mraz is involved in so that he could help to "pick" for today.  One of the organizations that stuck out and seemed to fit was MusiCares.

"MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares' services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. MusiCares also focuses the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community."

That's where our donation will go today.  Sound good?

 I finally got the hot chocolate and fire I was promised today.  It had mini marshmallows (the hot chocolate, not the fire).  Yay!  


Sure, the fireplace made the whole house smell like gas (um... by the way, please check on us if I don't post tomorrow), and we had to turn it off before we could truly enjoy the fire.  Yes, I heard a crash and an "Uh oh!" from Tom whilst he was making the hot chocolate in the kitchen.  I hollered but did not investigate, and everything seemed as if it was okay.  These things just add to the memory making.  Come to think of it, that gas might just make our memories of this evening even more euphoric... 


Thank you, hot chocolate, you made my day.
