And We Have a Winner

It was so nice today to see the sun again.
 And blue skies.
 Sam and I took a walk this morning.
Had lunch with new friends.
Then came home to pick a winner for the Grow Your Blog Party.
I did it the old fashioned way.
By writing everyone's name on a piece of paper and placing them in a jar.
Shake, shake, shake!
Then I poured them into a bowl, told Sam to close his eyes and pick a winner.
 Congratulations Olympia!
Olympia and I have been visiting each other for awhile now.
She lives in Greece where she blogs about every day life and her love of all things old.

Thanks to all who visited my Grow Your Blog post.
And to everyone who continues to visit me on a constant basis!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!


  1. Congratulations to Olympia!

    That blue sky looks lovely - clear fresh morning air is so invigorating. Makes me feel like getting outside and doing something, even if it's just the chores! :)

  2. Your photos are lovely!

    It's below zero here this morning - so quite the contrast from where you are. :) Still, we too have sunshine and blue skies.

    I'm looking forward to a very quiet weekend all to myself since both Sarah and Jim are gone. Hope you enjoy your time as well.


  3. What a lovely walk, thanks for taking us along! A tad too cold here to walk, maybe in a month or two! Have a wonderful,blessed day.
