Snowflakes drift past my windows and the sky’s a steely gray. Even though the snow isn’t sticking it certainly looks cold enough. I’m about to head to an OB appointment and my youngest is home sick–although at his dad’s–with a 103 degree fever and a cough that makes the walls shake. And right now Hawaii sounds like heaven. If only I could get on a plane and just go. I’d love to be warm right now, would love to be near the sea.
Speaking of the sun and sea, I heard from a number of my Canadian readers that Flirting with Forty finally showed on TV there last night. Not sure which channel/station was showing the movie but I hope those who waited so long to see it enjoyed it. I almost watched the taped movie again just because I’m missing Hawaii at the moment and unfortunately can’t be there until late June when my boys get out of school for the summer.
But there’s no reason we can’t dream of Hawaii, and to create some much needed aloha, I’m going to give away a ‘Little Hawaii” prize: a beautiful red sarong, a Hawaii thermos from Hawaii Starbucks, Kona coffee, macadamia nuts and a signed copy of the mass market edition of Flirting with Forty, plus lots of my JP reader goodies. If this sounds like your kind of a prize, just talk to me in the comments below and you’re entered. The contest will run until Wednesday night midnight PST and I’ll announce the winner’s name Thursday morning. How’s your Monday? How’s your health? How’s life? I want to know!
