The way I did this was- I gave everyone a number and used the random number selector. Shelley's number came up! Congratulations! I hope you love this book as much as I did.

I don't even know how I got this shot with her tongue sticking out! Luck I guess.
The birds art work!
Knitting - Ashley and I went to a great yarn sale on Sat. It was customer appreciation day at Finger Lakes Fibers in Watkins Glen. From 6:00 - 7:00 am everything was 40% off! So naturally we got there a little after 6:00. They had coffee and donuts and lots of beautiful yarn! I bought some to send my mom in TN, I bought one skein for Ashley, and a few skeins for my self. I really love to take advantage of this sale and buy yarn that I might not buy for myself otherwise.
I am looking forward to the next one, hee hee hee.
Books I have read - "The Last Promise" by Richard Paul Evans. I want to thank my friend Chris for turning me onto this book. I really liked it alot! I gave it 4 stars. This is a beautifully written love story that takes place in Italy. Although I know Italy is a very beautiful country, I have never been all that interested. This book does an excellent job of taking you to Tuscany (the vineyards, the villas, the art, the restaurants) the character development was excellent! I loved Eliana and Ross and hated Eliana's Italian husband, Maurizio (you are suppose to hate him). Very nicely developed love story with lots of twists and a great ending!
