My “word” for 2012 is wOw!
wOw! is one of those fabulous words that fits positive, negative and neutral situations. It’s a word we can use when no other will work. Over this next year of Sundays, I’m going to share some wOw!moments from the previous week. By December 31, 2012, I’ll have shared 2012 wOw! moments.
I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

“adopting” a puffin through the National Audubon Society’s ProjectPuffin.org . . . she is Y33 (Ysolde to me), a 34 year old bird and one of the first to be resettled in U.S. waters on Eastern Egg Rock, ME, from her Newfoundland hatching place. She has raised 21 ‘pufflings’ so far! Wow!
Penny, that’s AWESOME! thanks for letting us know…
I love your wOws…and I love your menu. The food always sounds yummy – and healthy! Next time you need fudge, let me know and I’ll make a batch for you. I love making Mama’s recipe – great therapy!
