Yesterday, I returned home from babysitting for my neighbour, to find a postal package leaning up against my front door. I immediately smiled because I knew exactly what it was and who had sent it.
A couple of weeks ago, I was the very lucky winner of a book of photographs and stories Tales of the Seasons by one of my favourite bloggers - EthelMaePotter from The Adventures of Fred and Ethel. Ethel was holding a giveaway to celebrate having reached 100 followers. How her numbers don't exceed 1,000 is beyond me because she's an incredibly entertaining and enjoyable writer, and a very gifted photographer.
So imagine how ecstatic I am to own a book which contains some of her finest of each. Thank you so much, EthelMae. This is a gift I shall cherish always. And for those of you who are not one of her 100+ followers, do yourself a favour and hop on over to her blog and get to know her. You won't regret it.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!
