I made it home from Poland late on Saturday and spent the next 48 hours in a confused daze about what time it was. I wanted to talk at 3:30am. I wanted to sleep at noon. Bah.
But today I am beginning to feel like my spirit has caught up with my body and all is well. I’ll post a few more Warsaw photos later. But now, we must turn our attention to the moment you have all been waiting for: the end of the TWISTED contest. Last month, I offered a free, signed copy of TWISTED to the reader who came closest to guessing when the last bit of snow would melt from my yard. I was a little worried that the snow would leave when I was out of town, but the Nor’Easter that ripped through here deposited a fresh foot.
So I was home when it happened. The last bit of snow melted at 4pm on Sunday, April 22nd. I am racing out the door right now and don’t have time to scroll through all of the entries, but I promise I will do so later and report who won. (One of the errands I have to run is to deliver the signed copy of Just Listen that Sarah Dessen sent to the Mexico Library to honor the bet she lost about basketball last month.)
One more drum roll…my daffodils are blooming.
Happy Spring, everyone.

SO glad you’re back!
Woohoo! I obsessively checked the comments and I think I and another person are tied for being closest (He guessed the 23rd at 4, I guessed the 21st at 4). Fingers crossed I looked correctly…
I finished Twisted last night.
You are a literary rock star.
Thanks for doing what you do.
Hooray for blooming daffodils!
Welcome back! Love the daffodil.
I’m reading TWISTED. I’ll put a review on my blog ASAP to go with the one I did of SPEAK a few days back. 🙂
Yeah I see that other post too—
I missed being in a tight race by 39 minutes….
ah well….don’t matter ’cause I’ve already read the book. It was great! (Though, a free autographed version would be cooler but it’s a good read either way.)
Welcome back! Your flower is beautiful!
