I'm a Winner!




Yesterday was freezing cold, with a wicked icy wind that cut right through you. And we had to go out and do some shopping. Neither of us felt too well, Phil was just diagnosed with a bacterial infection, but things had been getting backed up, so off we went. Brrrr. But I was brightened up considerably and kept warm with this new scarf, isn't it pretty? I LOVE the cheery color! In fact, I was so taken with the vision that I had become that I was even taking pictures of myself in the little car mirror that flips down from the visor, as you can see in the header. O.K. I admit that I got just a bit carried away, but I am a winner!! I won this scarf in a blog giveaway from my friend Stephanie! She has a delightful blog that you can check out HERE. She knits such lovely creations, and I have always wanted something of hers. Thank you again, Stephanie, you have warmed my body and my heart!! Wednesday night it's to be 13 degrees!






God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding...The tempest comes out from it's chamber, the cold from the driving winds. The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen." Job 37

That scarf is perfect for you. It's your color. I'm a winner too since your winning gave me nice views of you this morning. The shot in the car visor mirror cracked me up. Wish we were meeting for coffee to stave off the chill.

Best,
Bonnie

Hi Winner! That scarf looks so snuggly, just right for blocking those sneaky winds that you described. Happy scarf-wearing! Sending a prayer your way for you and Phil to start feeling better.

Oh wow - that scarf is beautiful!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Very pretty, Ginny--and I'll bet it feels good in THIS horrible weather. When I first started blogging, I won alot of giveaways. I even offered one myself. Then I realized that that is not why "I" want to blog... Some people love them--and that is fine. BUT--I didn't want to take someone's gift unless I had some giveaways in response (which I did not want to do, after that one time)... SO--it was easier for me to get out of that totally. BUT--I do love your scarf.
Hugs,
Betsy

Bobbi said...

Remington said...

Kim said...

Doris Sturm said...

Congratulations, Ginny - but, you know what? You would be a winner in my eyes even without this lovely scarf! It looks great on you! Bundle up: 13 degrees WOW!

Ann said...

Congratulations on winning and what a great prize. Love that color. The picture in the mirror is something I would do...lol
I have to thank you for the comment you left on my blog about how I couldn't be more than in my 30's. You made my day. I'll be 49 next march but some days by the time I get home from work, or after doing a boat load of painting and other things, I feel more like 70...lol

Kilauea Poetry said...

I like all the lights on your page! Very colorful..cheers to your new scarf- its beautiful and practical!

Annie said...

I seriously like the header, Ginny. I figured that was you when I matched the scarf colors up. TeeHee. A little raspberry rose color in a girl's life sure brightens things up.

Oh, and the thing I find most interesting about St. Luke is that though best known as a physician and healer and patron of doctors, he was also an artist and is protector and inspiration for artists as well.

In answer to the question you posed to Denise Nesbitt, I DID know that one: Go Now by the moody Blues, when Denny Laine, later of Paul McCartney and Wings, was still with the group.

Neal said...

That is a beautiful scarf. Hope everyone is feeling better.

Deborah said...

Chatty Crone said...

I love your new scarf - it's a pretty color. Your husband is still sick? I hope he takes care and stays in!

Love,

Ann said...

I hope Phil gets better soon, tell him to stay warm, may be you lend him your new scarf. LOL

In deed it is a beautiful scarf, I can't imagine Stephanie knitting and giving it away.

Stephanie V said...

That scarf looks as though it was made for you, Ginny. Love the header - too cute.

I'm so glad the scarf arrived to keep you warm...thanks for the shout out.

Mildred said...

That's a lovely scarf and I am sure you will enjoy it and the thoughtfulness in which it was made.

This was the Bugis fountain in Singapore, my kids went to the water like you described. My husband wasn't pleased, he said the water was dirty.

I think kids in Auckland went into this fountain too in Summer.

Ann said...

I am sure every parent would have been very happy to see their little one.

Your manager is very sweet with the hearts. i have not seen one like this.

Melanie said...
