I'm a winner, I am

My Winnings
I can’t believe I won three books in the last couple of weeks. Amazing I am. Ok, ok, the sites I visit are amazing.

I won and received Monarch by Michelle Davidson Argyle from the awesome site of Judy Crome: Author on the Prowl. I started reading it Sunday afternoon. Thanks, Judy.
I won HELP! FOR WRITERS by Roy Peter Clark and reviewed on the awesome blog of Thoughts in Progress! Thanks, Mason.

And, I won a book from Kathleen Ernst and I chose Clues in the Shadow. Kathleen was hosted on another awesome and favorite blog Mystery Writing isMurder. Thanks, Elizabeth and Kathleen.
Three awesome people and blogs (4 if you count me, IF YOU count me) where I won books.
I feel very lucky.  Too bad I don't play the lottery. Too bad.
My Aunt
I mentioned yesterday that we are mourning my aunt’s passing. Thanks, dear ones, for your sweet comments. My Aunt Mildred was an awesome woman. I feel sad with her passing, but at 88 years of age I happen to know she lived a wonderful life. She had great parents (my grandparents) and siblings with the youngest being the best of all – my mother. She had an awesome husband and two sons and grandchildren.

We will miss her very much.

I’ll be checked out this week and will look in on you when I can. My week at work promises to be murder by stress.
See you soon.
