EVERYONE IN MY YARD AGREES WITH THE LITTLE FROG in the blue boots: “Hurrah for Santy.” To that end, we–Jack the Demon Cat, the frogboys, the birds and snakes and I–wish you all a happy holiday season and also extend the offer of a possible gift: Two people can win copies of my “old” book, “A Way to Garden,” along with advance reading copies of my next, “And I Shall Have Some Peace There.” Details below, but meantime, let’s strike up the band, shall we?
The chance to win one of two sets of books begins now, and entries will close next Tuesday, December 28, at midnight. I’ll pick the winners Wednesday at random, using the tool at random [dot] org as usual. To enter, all you have to do is comment below–just say hello, or season’s greetings, or “Hurrah for Santy” or whatever you want. Even, “I’m in,” or “I’d like to win the books” will do.
Whether you choose to enter or not, here’s the important punchline:
May your holiday season be peaceful, safe, and spent in the company of those you love. Blessings all around, friends!

Thanks you Margaret for this wonderful site. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed doing so and passing it on.
Every Year’s resolutions:
Try to bring out the best in myself and others
Try to make the world a better place
Cherish those I love and let them know
Laugh, express gratitude.
Take time to enjoy my garden.
Play more with my rescued woofies (they are nudging me right now…)
You are welcome, Ellen. And what a good list (I may borrow some of the resolutions!).
Merry Christmas from Bensenville, Il.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years!
You, your whacky sense of humor and intelligence (I’m told they go and come together) bring me tidings of great joy and laughter all year. Let’s hope 2012 holds many moments of peace, love, joy, good health and prosperity for us all!
Thanks, BeBe, and nice to see you here. Hope to in 2012 lots, of course!
