Stacking the Shelves [62] & a Sad Note

A note to my readers, publishers, and anyone else who stumbles onto this post:

It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you that there has been a death in the family. I will largely be gone from the blog while I travel home for the service and some grieving time with the rest of my family. A majority of my promised posts are pre-scheduled and so they will post automatically in lieu of my absence. I'd like to apologize in advance if any posts get missed, or if I am a bit slow in my replies to you. I will only be thinking of family, and I promise I will get back to you as soon as I am able to. The best way to communicate with me until then would be Twitter. I thank all of you for your patience, and for the well wishes that I have been sent so far. You all are lovely, lovely creatures. If you do just one thing of note today, please hug someone that you care about and let them know just how much they mean to you. Have a beautiful weekend.

With all of my love,
