It was so wonderful reading your plans for New Year’s Eve last night while I sat home watching tv in my pajamas and my sheep slippers. My husband had gone to bed early and I stayed up watching the Turner Classic Movie channel where they were hosting a Thin Man marathon. At midnight, fireworks went off around here and George came running over to me, scared. So I kissed him and wished him “Happy New Year” and we went out front where the noise was even louder.
I loved reading your responses to my question “what are you planning on doing for New Year’s Eve?” Readers from as far away as Norway, Australia, Canada, and Japan wrote in. And while I was praying, “dear Lord, don’t let anyone in another country win because I cannot afford the postage”, low and behold, number 65 came up. Congratulations to Debra/aka Mimi, a long-time reader who, to my knowledge, has never won a prize here yet.
Debra, your prize will be on its way as soon as you e-mail me your address. Debra will receive a standout print of the red cardinal that I took during the snowstorm last month.
Hope you’re all enjoying your day. Happy New Year to all and welcome to so many new readers. Must be that cardinal over on PW’s site. I read the comments over there, and some were asking if the print was available for sale. I was tempted, really tempted to put a comment in saying YES, it’s available and here’s my etsy site. But I thought that would be rude. (You know it would, too). I’m just happy that it got featured.
Cheers, all! My husband is in the kitchen doing something wonderful, George is curled up on the sofa asleep, there are fox prints all around the property, and I wish you all a year filled with goodness.
Oh, and PS ~ Here’s the proof.
