The Shining

There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures.

This week I plan to hold the BIG giveaway!!
I have finally prepared the six magnets to send out to their new homes.
Thanks again to everyone who played along with the first giveaway!

Other than fireworks on Friday, we haven't been anywhere this weekend.
The weather was not very favorable, it rained quite a bit.
Good thing it held off for the festivities, I love fireworks!
I'll share some photographs with you soon.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend :o)

    I responded to your question at my blog about Pyewacket's name; sorry it took so long. :)
    I'm excited to have my magnet. I told Mike that he needs to get his blood donor parking pass off the fridge where I want to put it!
