"Twenty-two," hubby said. That means that Melanie @ FrenchKnits is the winner of the bedtime rituals contest with a wonderful adventure story about her grandfather!! I can't help but think "Big Fish"... um, "Big Tiger"... um, tantalizing tall tale! Congratulations Melanie!
This may have been my favorite contest to date. I truly loved reading everyone's entries -- some so heartbreakingly sweet, others so sublimely silly -- and I thank everyone for sharing their little thing.
Scored this funky chair at Goodwill yesterday. I love the color and the shape; because it's a prop and I'll be dragging it around with me, the fact that it's lightweight is a big bonus! I've been borrowing chairs from the coffee shop, when needed, and now... well, I won't have to borrow as many!
I dragged the chair out front for some photos and then Katie came along and I made her sit. The sun was just disappearing behind a house across the street.
Then Scamp came along.
Have I mentioned that Katie's been biking? A few months ago, she bought a Trek, a helmet, bike shorts and a couple of jerseys, and started pedalling. Sometimes she gets up early in the morning -- earlier, even than me -- to get her ride in, and really misses it when she has to skip. A few weeks ago she clocked her first 20-mile ride. Yesterday, she marked her first 30-miler!
She deserved a little sit!! Congratulations, Kate!!
