Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

5:30 P.M.

My blog entry for earlier today, found below this little note.

Bud and I just got home. We've been gone since about 7:30 this morning, and I worked on the blog giveaway that I was holding this past couple of weeks. I had 87 comments [88, but one name was duplicated with a whole 'nother kind of comment]!!!!! I wrote the names all down and got them in a glass globe and had Bud draw the 4 lucky names out. The three first ones were for the thongs...the last one was for the 'grand' prize, the crocheted scarf.

As soon as I get the pictures of the drawing off the camera and get the page set up for the blog entry announcing the winners, I'll post it.

Tomorrow is going to be another busy day for the two of us, so I'm hoping to get it all posted and let the winners know who they are on Sunday. [keeping my fingers crossed]!!!

It was very exciting for me to see all who dropped by to enter! It was fun to have my dear sweet cheeks draw the names...he even made sound effects. [You had to be here!]

Happy 2nd day of January everyone...only 363 more days in 2009! wow, how time flies!!!


  1. Happy New year to you n yours. Love your New years design. I'm keeping my finger crossed that maybe I am a winner. Dont forget FM at

    I'm glad you and Bud are having fun with the giveaway. Looking forward to hearing who the winners are.


  11. Sounds like a wonderful way to handle your drawing. I love the little froggy on the toadstool, but confess I missed the note to click to leave comment at first. LOL ... fortunately I looked again. Hope you & Bud are enjoying whatever you're up to.
    Hugs and blessings,

  12. I really don't know anything about this "giveaway" I have read it now on several blogs. Is that a kind of exchange or what ?
