Today I received some Jane Austen ten-pound notes from a great friend in England. I’ve also been cleaning my office. What does this have to do with giving gifts? Oh my goodness! You can’t imagine how many treasures I’ve found. Pemberley t-shirts, Pride & Prejudice scarves, Jane Austen candles, tea, Pride & Prejudice peacock edition notebooks, journals, Jane Austen ink & pens…and the list goes on.
I’m going in for surgery this next week to get a new hip (I’m thrilled). After the recovery, I plan to box all the goodies up and send them off to individuals selected from my mailing list. Yes, I ship internationally.
This is EXCITING!!! (Are you signed up? If not, look to the right of this post for the link, please.)
Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
Thank you so much, Mary. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to getting this done. My bicycle wreck was over a year ago. I will need further surgery to repair the muscles and tendons after this heals but this is an important start. Best wishes for the giveaway. I’m excited for that too. (I suspect sometime in mid to late November.)
I am happy to hear you are starting your journey to becoming well again. Best wishes.
Thanks, Kathy. My goal is to be able to run, not just walk, to my favorite book store. I’m hopeful.
All the best and wishing you a ‘speedy’ recovery!!! I had no idea you had such a terrible bike accident! You bring such ‘Joy’ to all of us with your generous spirit!!!
Ha Ha! I would love to tell you that the crash was spectacular. The truth is I fell over after coming to a complete stop. My leg tangled in the chair. Total uncoordination on my part. You are quite the wordsmith, Carole. Happy weekend!
You always have the best giveaways, Joy! I hope your surgery goes well and you recover very quickly. Sending you good thoughts all the way from Brazil. 🙂
Obrigado, Daniela. I do love sharing. Apparently, I love shopping too. Too much, perhaps. This will be good to give away so I can start all over again.
Thanks for the giveaway and I did download Compromised and have been enjoying it so much. Take care. Jen Red
I thank you, Jennifer. Compromised! is very tongue-in-cheek. At least thats how I thought of it when i wrote it. I appreciate your good wishes. Thanks!
I so wish you well. I pray for you during your surgery. Love the giveaway.
Thank you, Fawn. There’s some awesome stuff.
You are definitely the most generous author I know Joy!!
I hope you have a quick, painless recovery 🙂
I appreciate that, Rita. The Bible says there’s more happiness in giving than receiving and I’m a happy gal. I hope my recovery goes well too.
I hope your recovery is going well Joy 🙂
Thank you, Rita. I’m out of the hospital and recovering as well as to be expected. I’m so pleased to have this done.
Praying for your full and speedy recovery. And what a lovely generous thing to do!
You are so sweet, Janis. Thank you very much.
Best wishes for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery! ❤️
I appreciate your well-wishes, Pam. I’m hoping to be back in the swing of things soon. My fingers are itching to type some long dialogue. Soon!
I will be praying for you, girlfriend. I have it marked on my calendar.
Great big hugs, Sheila.
Truth be, she wants to play with her grandkids
I want to play with your GREAT grandkids, Mom. And that’s the truth.
All my good thoughts coming your way for a speedy recovery! Xo
I thank you, Becky. I hope to be active soon. I’m looking forward to it.
Blessings for your surgery and recovery as that is the most important task ahead of you. You are so very gracious with your found treasures and especially those ten pound notes! Take care.
Found treats found treasure. What a lovely description. Thank you, Eva. I will do as you say. I promise.
Wow! You’re so sweet! And positive! I surely do hope the worst is behind you, Joy. You sound as if you are FULL of healing energy… still, I’m sending more! Wishing you all the best, Karylee
Thanks so much, Karylee. I’m definitely improving daily. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things in the next several weeks. All the best to you.
