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.

Hi Kim! You are going to have a fantastic day with the grands! Slip and slides are FUN! I'm glad you had a happy date night! (BIG HUG!)

Kim said...

Yay for Mimi. Its nice when you have a giveaway and have some history with the winner.
I'm happy your date night was a success. Have fun with the little ones today.

Kim I have heard you say (ok, I have read) that you have the nicest followers. You are so right! I was so delighted to see all the congratulations wished my way for winning your give away! How very sweet! I was so excited to find out that I won but then immediately started feeling guilty because that meant everyone else didn't win. But reading the comments today has changed my perspective. I will enjoy the give away and then hope that eventually everyone else will win! Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and your generosity Kim!

Congrats to Mimi! Thanks for the giveaway. I've been thinking that it's high time for me to have my first giveaway...

I'm glad you had a great date night. I really love all of those Jane Austen movies as well--they've done a great job of them. I also loved the Anne of Green Gables series that was done up in Canada. They nailed it! Mostly, though, I am sad when books are turned into movies...especially good kid's books--then the kids don't really read them, they just watch the video!
Hope you're staying cool! I bet the slip and slide helps!

With my broken computer in the shop I missed a lot of things. I bet it was fun.

love the sunflowers, so beautiful and cheery! hard to believe summer is almost the sense school will begin in a few weeks. doesn't seem like children get a real vacation anymore and our school system is now talking about increasing the time spent in school.
don't get me started...-grin-

Congratulations to Mimi,
Your flower photos are always so beautiful, and I am so glad you get to spend special times with those grandchildren, I am so looking forward to hugs, and kisses from ours, I haven't seen them since Christmas, much to long.
