Ok, so no chicken dinner, but I do have a winner! I love giveaways but I always wish I could give something to everyone. But, that wouldn't really work, so I put all the names in a hat..very technical..and pulled out...DRUM ROLL PLEASE! Cindy from Living..Laughing..Loving! Cindy's blog is about her family, more importantly, she writes about caring for her Mom who has Alzheimer's. She's a hero in my book. So Cindy, please email me your address so I can get this stuff out of my dining room! I'll get it to you ASAP! Before Fall is over anyway!

I promised a Fall giveaway today..and I make good on my promises! I took a short drive down my country road to my favorite little hangout..The Parsley Pot. Love that barn full of goodness! They were chock full of fall items and Halloween goodies. I know that many folks aren't into Halloween so I kept my items to things most would enjoy...things that taste good, look cute, have a function, and I must add...smell good! My Father-in-law used to say I would buy anything that was deemed "cute" or "smelled good". He was right on! I did put just a teensy bit of Halloween in the package..so if it's not your thing please pass it along to somebody who would find it fun. I'm all about "pass it on" when it comes to fun!
Just move to the ground...much easier!

I'm not really new, but my computer is! I'd been having problems for a bit and was getting tired of the slowness, crazy stuff showing up, and loudness. I just wanted to "get 'er done", so to speak. I wasn't blogging and that just aint right! So this is my test blog to see how to get my pics and all the new do-dads figured out. So far...so good!

Some people are freaked by the number 13 and, more importantly, the day...Friday the 13th. Movies are even made about it! Me? Not so much. Today is a good example of Friday the 13th that was not scary, bad luck, or disturbing in any way. Maybe it was due to the motivational seminar I attended on Thursday. I learned how to shake your hand, introduce myself, ask questions to get to know someone else better and how to have a good start to the day. He suggested the "power hour". Get up early....wake up, put a big smile on your face, take a deep cleansing breath, and say to yourself, or outloud..."Today is going to be the best day I've ever had"...or the best selling day, or the best writing day...you fill in your own blanks. New ideas I've never heard before? Nope..but it was a fun way to spend a Thursday. Although sitting in a seminar is hard for me because I'm not used to sitting during my day at all! I did get to spend it with 4 co-workers and we had fun..don't we always? I took pics but Jack has my camera because he went camping with the Scouts. The pics didn't turn out that great anyway! So I'll give you some shots of my "best day ever" on this Friday the 13th.

I can't really call Sammy a house guest since he's been staying in the garage. We're temporarily cat sitting my Granddaughter's cat. Sammy is a really cool dude..very sweet. We like him but he's a bit wary of Eddy. Sammy's never been around dogs and even though Ed just wants to be friends, Sammy is not thrilled. Then there's the matter of our cat...the cat from hell...Squeak. She's very territorial...like stay off my/her deck..my/her inside of house. Lucky for Sammy, Squeak stays mostly on the back deck and Sammy has found the front of the house and garage to be his spot. It's working...mostly. Here's the little character:
