1,000 Post

The day has finally arrived, post number 1,000I can not believe it.  On June 28, 2006 (oddly a Wednesday too), I decided I would start a blog.  It was a hard day for me that day when I began tapping my fingers across the keyboard, typing my blog.  This blog became a friend for me.  It was/is a friend that has opened doors to many more friends across the world.  My blog, Jill of All Trades has allowed me to write my feelings out and work out some issues with the help others along with the experience of actual writing.  I thank all who have come by to visit me and leave a comment or two. It is inspiring and a wonderful pat on my back to be somewhat acknowledged.  Now to the ramble of the day for number 1,000.

Last night was the first of two dinner parties for us. Unfortunately, I did not get pictures except for the ...

flowers and the stain 
I will have to wash that. 

I know the flowers were springy but they fit in my great, great, grandmother's flower bowl perfectly.  I was tossed up on whether to do my Christmas dishes but they are gold and stars and fancy and the meal of beef bourguignon called for simpler settings.  The meal was awesome and the company too.  It turned out to be a wonderful evening and still I do it all over again next week! (Sorry for the bad photo.)
 
Now I believe I will give away a few goodies for this awesome occasion of post #1,000.  All you have to do is comment, simple and easy, which is my motto!  I would ask though that you please link it somehow to your blog, promote it, simple as the giveaway is.  Thanks to all of my readers and dear friends for being here these past 4+ years.  I will ship "ANYWHERE" so no fear to those who live far.

  Smelly good candle - Awesome CD of Elton John and Leon Russell (my fav guy) - Fav French Lavender body butter - and a couple of funny Christmas wine corks I just had to get.  See simple fun things.  So go ahead and please enter in this drawing to end in exactly 2 weeks, December 15 at midnight!

Here are the facts:

Ends December 15 - Midnight!

I was getting ready to comment and saw the photo of your friend's dog (Annie). I had to click and was sad to see the story that accompanied the photo. I have 2 Cavis and I can't imagine life without them...so sorry to hear about Annie.

Congrats on making it to 1,000! Take care!
