This, That and a Give Away Drawing
Today the sun was out strong and the temps were mild. I spent some time dumping frozen flowers and plants. The geraniums are still going strong in vibrant hues, a last hurrah to summer. They might make another week, but their days are numbered. Gradually things on the deck will come down to the pumpkins and gourds from the fall harvest, waiting to become winter pumpkin pies.
I have garnered two new Followers lately. So, a big hello to Lady Estelle and Kathy B.; I am glad you are here!
AARP is introducing a new series of books called “Arts of Living”, and the first book is on memoir written by Abigail Thomas. It is titled Thinking About Memoir. Thomas teaches writing in New York and is the author of the bestselling book Three Dog Life. The book on memoir gives me a good idea for a blog give away during this season of memories. I will use a copy of this book as a prize, name drawn at random, for those who care to participate. Rules follow:
1. You do not have to be a Follower, but you do have to leave a comment.
2. Your comment should be a 75 word or less passage on any memorable Thanksgiving or Christmas.
3. Give away posts should be done between Sunday, November 7, and Monday, November 22.
4. Winner will be announced before Thanksgiving.
Please join in for a tad of writing memoir yourself.
