Amy Clipston always delivers a wonderful story, and this contest includes not only one of her new books but other nice gifts that are sure to please.

I suggest you go to Amy’s blog and read about her inspiring story as a kidney donor as well as signing up for this new book.

Cheryl Baranski of Virginia is the winner of the Jam.

Today, the skies are gray and gloomy. It’s 50 degrees and looks like it might rain. The weather forecasters are saying we might have some snowflakes in the next few days.

Black-capped chickadees have been hanging around. My mother-in-law always called them ‘snow birds’ and believed that if they came in numbers there would be snow.

Most of my Christmas crafting is finished, the last stocking was done this morning, one scarf to go and a couple of hats. Then unless something strikes my fancy, the yarn, knitting needles and crochet hooks can rest awhile. But as always, this time of year, I picked up some pretty yarn to add to the big basket by my chair.

And I printed some patterns I want to ‘try’, so I doubt they will be out of business for a while yet. Surely someone will ‘need’ a scarf, hat, mittens or such in the future.

Earlier this week, I did some bartering, I traded some of my jellies for some of different flavors with a neighbor, then a couple of jars for a series of books from an author friend, and some books for some handmade gifts with yet another friend.

Each of us came away happy, feeling we had gained something we wanted on the trade.

Things like that are sort of like a big hug, don’t you think?

Andwe have a Winner


I have sent the winner of the December give away  an e-mail.

The name will be announced when I get a reply, or, if there is no reply by Monday, someone else will be chosen.

I want to thank every one who participated and I will see what I can come up with for a giveaway after Christmas, because they are FUN!


From the Sunrise Ridge Kitchen, one half pint jar of mixed berry jam or blackberry jelly – winners choice!

The mixed berry contains strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, pectin and real sugar.

The blackberry jelly has been strained, no seeds, and contains berries I picked this year, pectin and yes, real sugar.

Done up in nice approved jelly jars with the proper two piece sealing lids.

To enter:  leave a comment, what will you do with a jar of homemade jam/jelly? Slap it on a biscuit, fill a donut, put it on ice cream? I don’t have a problem with any of those , and I bet you have some other ideas too.  I’ll tell you the mixed berry is really good on ice cream!

I know this is quick, but I will have to pick a winner on Thursday, December 6 at noon, to ensure that it will get to you before Christmas.

Let the fun begin!
