Kristina over at Pioneer Woman at Heart reminded me of something that I've neglected to blog about. Check out her post from today.
Back in February I asked my readers to partake in a Letter A Month challenge and I haven't reminded any of you about it lately. And speaking of which, I still have an already written letter sitting in my notebook but keep forgetting to take it to the post office.
Yes, I know, it's gardening season. Everyone is knee deep in compost. Fingernails and hands (and maybe even feet) so filthy that no amount of scrubbing or soaking will remove the dirt or vegetation stains from yanking stubborn weeds out of the tomato patch.
But maybe between stints of putting in new plants or planning your Fall garden (like I should be doing), or while relaxing (ha!) at your kitchen table after an afternoon of weed-pulling and squash-bug-squashing, you can manage to crank out a little letter to someone special. Even if it's just a "Hi! I'm busy, but still thinking of you!" on a scrap of paper or Post-It note. Cram that baby in an envelope, slap a stamp on it and send it off to make someone's day a little brighter!
So, now that I've nagged you, I've got something else that I've neglected to finish up and it's much more exciting than the letter writing thing.
I had a book giveaway in the beginning of May and the winner never collected her spoils so I'm going to let you all have another go at it. My camera is on the fritz so I can't post new pictures of the books, but HERE is a link to the original giveaway post. I'll draw one name on Saturday night and announce the winner on Sunday morning. Winner has a choice of one of these books: Chocolate for a Woman's Blessings, Pearls of Country Wisdom, One Second After or Country Food.
Same rules apply as in the original giveaway (i.e. US residents only, say something nice about cats), except that I can not guarantee the condition of the bar of chocolate as it's pretty much a billion degrees everywhere. So if you don't mind a bar of melted chocolate (stick it in the freezer & call it good) and if you want another chance at winning a book, just make a comment here and your name will be thrown in the hat.
On winning the book AND trying to find time to write that letter!
