A Little Something

I’d been saving my cute new botanical print dress to wear to a July 4th party, so when the late afternoon sun disappeared behind treacherous looking dark clouds, and the temperature dropped in ten-degree increments, I nonetheless zipped up, did a twirl, admired myself in the mirror, and promptly forgot to snatch a shawl “just in case.” Following the storm, the clouds blew to the east, and the temperature went south. Atop our hosts’ roof, PC and I posed for a snap. My smile isn’t the only thing frozen.

As we rode the elevator down, I asked a fellow passenger to pick a number at random. 313 he said. And that’s how the winner of the first Sunday giveaway was chosen. #313 Apron Memories newsletter subscriber is ginaloya. Congratulations!

  1. Hi,
    Mj Farmgirl here. Just to let you know I have your books, and congrats on being in not one but two upcoming magazines. I saw the Paula one today while out shoping, would have picked it up if I had known you were in there.

  2. LOVE the Paula piece! This has always baffled me though…Jimmy leg doesn’t like watermelon! It must be a genetic trait as well as NONE of the kids do either. Cuckoo, I know. I resort to closeted watermelon eating which is sadly amusing.
    Love you and hugs to all!
