Well I happily won Jane's very generous giveaway. The gift is the very beautiful book derived from Marie's equally very beautiful blog, 66 Square Feet. Well I don't mind saying I was giddy and ecstatic! I've never won anything...well except for a few times when I've won $2 from a lotto ticket, once I won $118 and a couple of times somewhere between $25 and $50, and then there was the time when I won $250 from Powerball which is a bit of a letdown considering the size of those jackpots. But I digress, this was so much more exciting and fun, and Jane said she didn't cheat which I think she did but I'll take her word, wink wink. Anyway, I waited for my book, and waited, and waited...and then last week I got an email from Jane apologizing profusely; she would be running out of her house in a rush every day and forget the book on the shelf, but now it was on it's way. Thank goodness since I was wondering, how do I say "Where's my book?" without sounding demanding and nasty. (I'm sure Jane doesn't mind at all my telling this story). So on Saturday I go out to get the mail and see a package...oh joy
(see what I mean?), and not just because we happen to be in that month...but...let's see. Jane decided for this giveaway to happen on her birthday, September 18th, was a little slow in sending it due to unforeseen circumstances...but it arrived just in time for my birthday which is tomorrow...and October has this
the October birthday menu. Kismet I say!
