Pictures, Previews, and Preview Pictures
There's a "you choose, anything goes" theme afoot for this week's You Capture photography challenge--which suits this chaotic little post just fine. I figure we'd start with this pair of begonia shots from my patio.
This next picture is a Late Edition entry of today's wardrobe, in honor of last night's Victory in the Bronx. I've waited a long time to wear this with the proper amount of Yankee pride.
At this point, I'm going to interrupt the random photography segment to let you know that, right here and now I'm beginning the First Ever Running With Letters Giveaway! Here's what's happening. I know that, if you're not already, you really, really want to follow this blog. The right opportunity just hasn't presented itself. I get that. But you know what? This is your week!
Just in time for potential Christmas gift-giving, I will be giving away two autographed sets of my YA novels, The Chrysalis and Drink the Rain. The first set will go to the winner of a random drawing of Future Followers who come aboard between now and next Thursday.
Already a Follower and want in on the fun? Don't fret. The other set will go to one of you! All you'll need to do is "enter" by commenting on tomorrow's post, wherein you'll find more details and a have a chance to meet my protagonist.
Between now and then? If you're not a Follower--Follow! Viola! You're entered--it's as simple as that!
Now back to the pictures. The next three are also in the "preview" category.
You'll be seeing this fabric again soon on an upcoming DIY makeover post.
No guarantees whether or not you'll be seeing more of the Striped One. My guess is yes--she has a way of getting her paw into whatever happens to be in progress.
I can't think of a better way to end this multi-layered post than a good, old fashioned Sweet Ending:
See you tomorrow--Follow in the meantime!
