a winner + a recap

I was so pleased by the response to the giveaway on the blog last week — for your comments and participation, and for the generosity of the people at Tropical Traditions, I am so grateful! And thanks to random.org’s “true random number generator,” I was able to objectively draw a winner for the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil giveaway.

I’ll be putting you in contact with the nice folks at Tropical Traditions, and soon you’ll have your own jar of premium coconutty goodness with which to experiment.

Before I head off to spend more time with my family and friends over the holiday, here’s a quick recap of some of the goodness that is life lately:


Lots of relaxing.


Christmas-y touches everywhere at my parents’s house.


Plenty of inter-species love to go around.


I took care of that cherry pie in the upper right-hand quadrant.


No snow here…yet!
