It's now quite early on Saturday, and I am nearing the end of a very enjoyable week of vacation days. Thank you all very much for all the birthday wishes. You have helped me launch this newest year in my life in very good company.
Let us now move on to the results of the give away.
This is how I determined who would soon be wearing the crocheted blue beret. The names of all the folks who commented on the previous post were written on these little slips of paper.
These slips of paper were folded up and tossed into a brightly colored paper bag. That bag was shaken around quite a few times.
One folded slip of paper was drawn. The folded slip of paper was unfolded, and the winner is Madelief, whose beautiful site is a joy to visit.
Madelief, I would ask you to send me your mailing address via e-mail, and also please send me a measurement of your head that will ensure that the beret will be a comfortable fit. This hat will be a couture one off design!
I've had such a pleasant birthday week, spending lots of time outdoors, seeing friends, reading, finishing and beginning various projects, actually cleaning the apartment, visiting farmers markets, museums and galleries and just plain old relaxing.
It is with some reluctance that I now begin to confront the reality of tomorrow's return to the workplace. I will also be contemplating when I might be able to have another week to myself. I hope that you all will forgive me this greediness!
Thank you all for your visits and comments.
