Friday and a Winner
I didn't get a chance to get on last night and tell you who
the winner is of this giveaway. So without further ado,
The winner is Mimi. She has been a follower since I first started
blogging. I was thrilled when her name came out of
the hat. So if you see this just go to my gmail and leave me your
address and I will get your box off to you.
I had a good time with the giveaway and I enjoyed meeting new
people so I will be doing another one pretty soon. I wish I could be
like TexWizGirl and do one every month but I am just not that organized.
So glad it is Friday, I got all of my work finished yesterday so today is going
to be a play day. All of my grand kids are coming to gama's house this morning.
I have the Slip and Slide out for them to play in the water. I bought them
some nifty pirate swords to play with and take home. :) There is lots
of chalk so they can draw pretty pictures on the patio and lots of
books to read and the Mommy's and I can sit and visit. It is going to be a nice day.
Oh, the date was fun. Food was great. The movie was exceptional. I am always
in most cases disappointed when books are made into movies because of my own
vivid imagination. This movie was like they got into my head and made it the
way I always saw it and in some cases did it better than I imagined it.
The kinds of movie I prefer are the ones that the BBC does, like my favorite
Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. North and South the book
was written by Elisabeth Gaskill. I love the movie. I like all of the
Charles Dickens that have been made into movies, like Little Dorrit, Bleak House,
and Our Mutual Friend.
Oh and I should tell you this, I am big on time travel movies.
Thank you so much for entering my giveaway and thank you so much for all
of your lovely comments. As with everything I am so blessed by the friendships
I have made and thank you for sharing you life.
Have a lovely weekend.
