My Week: No More Strawberries?

Sunday was another day at home because I’d made sure I had everything I needed from town to get me by. The man from the produce place had called me on Friday to let me know my 88 count navel oranges were in but I put him off until Monday. I’d bought enough of the […]

My Week: A Milestone

Sunday was another day at home which was a milestone of sorts but not the one mentioned in the title of this post. That comes about later in the week. DD and I had our visit and I didn’t get the hosta in the ground. No big surprise, that. The weather had turned cold and […]

An Alternate Winner

I gave Ronda every opportunity to respond with her snail mail address so I could send her The Raw Truth. I never got an answer. Last Friday, I went to Random.org and picked an alternate winner and it was… Dana! She had left a comment that met the criteria for an entry. She also answered […]

April 2011 Giveaway: We Have a Winner!

Since the storms and tornadoes took out my DSL, I wasn’t able to post this at home last night as promised. Thankfully, that and some washed gravel were the only damage at my house. Others weren’t so fortunate. That being said, the winner picked on random.org is…(drum roll please) RONDA! with this comment. I’ll be […]

My Week: Disasters and Blessings

To say this week was eventful would be the understatement of the year. I never want to go through another like it. Once is more than enough. Sunday, I woke about 2 a.m. and didn’t go back to sleep. I had old Shoppers soaking in water to line the upper box before my neighbor filled […]
