And the Winner Is.......

What a lovely Spring we had today. A perfect one for an outing with a friend. In the beginning, things didn't look so good - I drove to her house to pick her up and when we came out to my car and I turned the key, nothing happened; I mean, nothing. No noise at all. She got out of the car and called her husband on her cell and I stayed in the car and called the hubster on my cell. Between the two of them they figured out that I had a dead battery. After all it was the original battery and was about 7 years old. So we got my car out of the way and she drove.

We did lots of errands including a stop at Michael's, a bookstore, lunch at Appleby's, Toys 'R Us, the Dollar Store and Kroger. We had a lovely time and will certainly not forget who drove last when we next decide to have an outing. We generally take turns driving and the passenger buys lunch. It is a good arrangement.

I have been working on my domino pendants because I finally found some pendant bails on eBay and the farmers' market season is almost upon us. I am hoping to sell some of them so that I can afford to make more.

Meanwhile, I have used the online random number generator to select the winner of the Chinese Painting book giveaway and this is what I got:

Congratulations Katina! I need your snail mail addy so I can send it to you.

That's all for now. Bye!

  4. Vicki-
    Thanks so much for the book, it's fabulous! I can't wait to get started. The fish have always intrigued me in Asian Art so I hope to start there after I master the basics.

    Also, I love the dominoes!!

    Thanks again-
