But things improved. I got some work done and met a good friend for lunch. She knows how to make really amazing chocolates (it's so much more complicated than I'd ever imagined - it's all about keeping the temperatures exact) and is an avid runner.
I also created this little 'reading girl' sketch (drawing at top of post). My daughter asked "Is that supposed to be you? 'Cause it looks just like you." So I guess I must spend more time with a blanket and a book than I thought. Decades ago I used to draw little people like this all the time. Then I quit. But as part of my new year of being courageous I am resurrecting them and putting them out into the world.
Now for the book drawing. I've got all the names in a hat (well in an empty cracker box really because I was too lazy to go get an actual hat) and I'm going to fish out two names.
The winners are:
Rebecca for The Forgotten Garden
Jean for We Are All Welcome Here
Congratulations! Thanks for playing everyone. This was really fun for me. I think I'm going to do another book giveaway soon.
