I want to thank all of you who sent me a donation or item from my wishlists (regular and Kindle) around Christmas time and the end of 2012. You are not forgotten. Sometimes amazon doesn’t put a packing slip in with the name of the sender, but God knows who you are and I pray for you with that confidence. I am loaded up with lots of good things to read and I received some useful things as well. For example, just yesterday I took apart my espresso coffee maker -and please do use my links to buy your Mystic Monk Coffee! -and cleaned it up with some descaling fluid.
I must add, however, that I think a couple items from my wishlist were clicked and purchased but they did not come to me. I suspect they went to the buyers. That is why I might from time to time repost an item. Things eventually get sorted.
Here are some of those who in the last month or so have been on my list because of money donations (with JS, KA, and DY as usual):
RB, DM, CMB, HE, JS, MJC, MH, JH, DP, MK, MF, AM, MF, ER, CO’C, PB

WJC, LV, MH, PAP, AN, AR’sC, AR, FN, JP, DH, JEJ, Fr. RH, VW, VS,
KA, JR, MZ, KT, CG, JK, EM, JR, DM, SG, CD, WH, GJ, MCB, MG, JWM,
GMcI, PV, JR, MR, TW, CB, ALG, AD, SD, ML, SH, AR, MAD, SMcM, RR,
VD, TH, DN, KA, CL, HE, RB, MF, MJC, MR, AM, AAP, MF, LS, CO’C, ER,
JB, RMcE, RA, [UPDATES:…] DP, MH, SS, BB, MK, LV, JH, CB, CL
UPDATE: I postpones Mass for my benefactors till morning Saturday, 12 January. It is my pleasure and duty to remember you at the altar.
Also, in the lead up to Christmas, quite a few of you, I think, used my amazon links or the search box on the side bar. THANK YOU! I hope you will get into the habit of using that search box all the time. It really helps. If you can’t see it, you might have to let your browser’s ad-blocker let it through.
In any event, thank you all from the bottom of my beady-black heart. You make it possible for me to do this. It has been a little slow since the beginning of the new year, which is understandable. Perhaps it will pick up? That’s up to you.
PS: I have also gone back to buying bird feed! I don’t need as much as I once did. I am trying to keep the Z-Cam on my little, but fairly active, feeder.
