Neckwarmer Winner

Thanks so much to everyone who entered my first giveaway.  It honestly was a pleasure reading all your comments about what you like about winter.  I’ll except Heather there, because she couldn’t seem to help gloating that south Florida doesn’t get much of a winter, but I will take this opportunity to remind her that her Impatiens actually FROZE this year and her husband had to wear four layers of clothing to walk the dogs in “frigid” 30-degree weather.  And I will scoff at her as well.

But it’s a loving scoff, because she is one of my best friends.  And I some winter I still want to be able to take advantage of the fact that she lives in Florida so that I can get away from snow and ice.

Anyway, it was truly encouraging to read what each of you had to say about winter.  I really think that reading and re-reading those comments may help me hang on until the flowers start coming up.  Thank you.

But you don’t care about all that.  You want to know who won.  So, I will tell you.

The randomly chosen winner is #18, Liisa!

If you didn’t win, I feel your pain.  I never win anything either.

But I’m going to try to have giveaways more often (more often than never, that is), so maybe you’ll get another chance.

Liisa, send me an email letting me know the best address to use to mail you your prize.  And happy winter, everyone!

    I’m so happy for Liisa and this reminder of her and chef’s Moody friendships, indirect connection tho’ it be.

    By the way, my impatiens came back! Unfortunately, so did the weeds. :-p Congratulations to Liisa – enjoy the neck warmer!

    YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY, Hurrah. I last won something in college and that was a long time ago. I emailed you today my address. Yaay. My neck is warmed by the thought. Thanks for yummy recipes from the Chef too. I really do feel like a “randomly picked winner.” Pretty sure my begging and threats and bribery had nothing to do with being chosen.

    I could imagine Jesus wants you to go stand under a fig tree so He can say with a smile, “Behold those in whom there is no guile…when you were under the fig tree I saw you.” You guys are real people, no guile. Thanks.

    I’m glad your impatiens came back I have no foliage or flowerage that was in need of dying or coming back. So alas, I was just cold when it was 30 degrees!!

    But I will mildly gloat at our lovely South Florida Winters! 🙂 hee hee
