The news being broadcast over the television leaves one feeling rather gloomy, too.
But, this evening I decided I am going to have a giveaway.
The month of December is almost here, and we just came through a busy holiday last week.
Sometimes, at the end of a busy day, I sit down to my computer and find myself entering into another world, the world of blogging. With the touches of a few keys, I can find myself visiting blogs that create, that take me on travel adventures that I never imagined myself on. I can visit fellow grandparents, fellow empty nesters, view photography blogs, decorating blogs, crafting blogs, and learn new cooking skills. I can find encouragement and inspiration from some much wiser than me. And to think that only a few years ago, I was not even interested in learning how to turn on a computer.
Who would have thought the world of blogging could become a fun part of my life.
Your visits here to my blog, the times you share comments on your heart...it means so much to me.
I just want to say "thank you" to each of you. I humbles me to think that you may find interest in stepping into my world, if only for a few minutes each week.
My simple way of expressing gratitude, is to have a giveaway of another one of my sister-in-law's beautiful, well made aprons.
The one I chose to give away, is like the one I chose to give my middle daughter, a few years ago.
I like it with it's bright red cherries, because it makes me happy. For some reason, it reminds my of my mother's kitchen, years ago. I also like it because it looks nice with black pants and a black top. Simple dinner attire for a busy hostess.
I know many of you will be cooking and baking for family and friends over the holidays,so it is fun to offer this lovely creation for you.All you need to do to win, is to leave a comment on this blog. Even if you never left a comment before and you don't plan on doing it again, it doesn't matter.
