My beautiful Lucky Horseshoe...thank you Jenn and Jacqui
It's Monday morning, the weather outside is crisp and cold, the sky is what we call here "Carolina Blue" with not even a wisp of cloud in the sky. I spent my weekend doing nothing. Well, that's not precisely true, it just felt like doing nothing...there was little work involved and very relaxing. First my younger son and his daughter (the little Princess) came over from Florence to spend the day (allowing his wife time alone to do her college homework) and then my older son and his wife joined us. After slicing veggies and shredding cheese (opps, I lie...the cheese was already shredded...I'm so lazy) taking out the lovely sliced turkey and ham, we assembled subs. They were so good, especially the bell peppers piled high with the onion and lettuce. I love bell peppers...I love them raw, I love them stuffed I love them cut up in Spanish Rice...anyway, we had a nice meal and enjoyed each others company. I started getting excited about the giveaway this coming Saturday. I made a decision about it...I intend to separate the American bloggers from the rest of the world bloggers (you know who you are...UK, Australia, New Zealand, and anyone else) and pick two winners. It feels right. If it feels right, do it. I think it was the snow that had me so happy and feeling like a kid...I wish I could send each and everyone of you a gift. I know that when I received my Lucky Horseshoe from Jenn and Jacqui so prettily decorated with ribbons and bows...and my beautifully handpainted tray (with pansies) that I received from Sandy McTier, who is a brilliant artist herself, how happy I was. There's nothing like a gift to bring your spirits up. Especially a gift that someone puts as much work into as my good friends did into these. They are accepted with the deepest thanks.
I just had to enclose a picture of these lovely things and if I ever get smart enough to do it, I intend to post a picture on my sidebar. Sometimes I can be so dense! But I'm learning...happy Monday everyone, now I'm going to go catch up with all of you.
