Friday Smiles - 102

Hello everyone!  I'm joining up with Annie at A Stitch In Time. for Friday Smiles.  If you need to smile hop on over and see what others are sharing.

I've been busy knitting the last couple of weeks so my funny is related to knitting, along with another past time that I enjoy. 
I must admit, I haven't seen any of the new season.  I may end up watching it at the end, having a marathon Downton Abbey day!

WOYWW 293 - And the winner is.....

Hello everyone!   I'm joining the party that is called What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Our lovely hostess is Julia at  Stamping Ground.  People from around the world join in and show their desks and projects.  

I've been busy in my easy chair, knitting away.  I finished a cowl and started a ruffled scarf.  First I had to cast on 648 stitches!
The winner of the 2015 calendar is...... 
Glenda!  Can you please send me your mailing address and  let me know if you'd like a floral, animal or New Mexico photo.

As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.

RE: computer.  My new computer is a Chromebook.  The operating system is Chrome OS; everything is stored and ran from the cloud.  It's sleek and lightweight but I had no idea I'd need to be hooked up to wifi when I use it.  I'm still not sure about photo editing or exactly how to download an entire SD card.

My First Random Act of Kindness

Hello peeps!  I hope all is well with everyone and the year is starting with adventure!

Today I've been sitting in Starbucks.  I bought a $5.00 gift card and placed it on a table.  
I was giddy with excitment, looking forward to see who would pick it up and enjoy the surprise.

These two guys looked at it but didn't make a move to pick it up.....
I waited, and waited and waited.  It took almost one hour and a half before someone got the nerve to pick up the card and look at it.  
There it sat, right next to the purse.  Just waiting.
Finally, someone picks it up!
He shares it with his friend and then his wife.  They really didn't know what to think.

I hope they pay it forward, as I've requested.  This was a fun morning for me.  I caught up on blog visits while waiting to surprise someone with just a little bit of kindess.

WOYWW 292 and a Giveaway

Hello Peeps,

I hope everyone has had a great start to 2015!  I'm joining the party that is called What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Our lovely hostess is Julia at  Stamping Ground.  People share their creative spaces and sometimes what they've been working on.

To celebrate 2015 I thought I'd host a giveaway.  I've made some calendars using my photos.  

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is:

1.  be a follower of this blog;
2.  leave a comment and tell me to put your name in the hat.
The winner will be announced next Wednesday.

My desk has been almost cleaned off (yay).  I have been making some calendars to send to friends and family.

I will visit those that end in the same number as me and also those that visit me (please leave your number).  Don't forget to let me know if you want to be part of the giveaway!

It's possible that I won't be around until the weekend so please be patient with me.

On another note (no pun intended), my netbook finally died.  I have a Toshiba Notebook that uses Chrome OS. Do any of you have a computer that runs on Chrome OS?  What photo editing software do you use?
