1000 Comment Giveaway Winner

I have the winner for the celebration of 1000 comments and another giveaway.  My last comment received was #991 last night.  Today I chose the first 9 comments (to add up to 1000 comments) of friends who wanted to participate and I’d asked those people to then leave their email addresses.  I was really confused because some people didn’t mention the giveaway…..so I guess they didn’t want to participate?  *sigh*.  Sooooo the 1st post of someone who wanted to participate was by Darlene and and the last and 9th post was from Dawn.


 I used the Random Generator and entered the numbers 1-9 and the number appeared….ta daaaaaaaaaaa #1!! Darlene from DarleneDays was the winner!  I was so pleased that Darlene won because she so diligently comes along and reads and leaves me comments.  In return I really enjoy visiting her blog mostly every day and share my comments.  She is a new mommy to a stray kitty and she’s likely too busy getting that kitty down her indoor Christmas tree, she may not even realize she is a winner.     

I’m sending some goodies I’ve made: a colourful striped tote bag, a yummy Sleigh Ride glycerin soap, a fizzing bath bomb, Lemon Blossom moisture lotion bar, and an Inspirational Key tag.  Then I’ve added a Christmas plate and a couple of Canadian Living magazines  (just love that magazine – so I like to share it).  I hope she’ll enjoy them.


I wish I could send something special to all my lovely blogging friends for you make my day and you make me feel happy…or sad….or scared…or whatever when I read your blogs.  As Dawn commented “after a while you almost forget that you have never met some of the ladies that you chat with every day”.  That is so true.  Thank you for visiting and thank you for your comments.     

 Have a lovely day.   Judi

My 200th Post…whew!

Soooooo this is my 200th Post!  It feels kind of strange.  I have sat here and shared 200 …. 200  posts with readers I know only through Blogland.    Readers who have become friends who have stopped by to read my posts and have left me such lovely comments.    You have shared your blogs with me and I love all that you have brought into my life and I wanted to say thank you to this “Girls Circle of Friends” …

     and 10 days ago I posted that I was having a giveaway for those who left me a comment to say they were interested in participating.  I am work right now so I will have a co-worker draw the name of the winner and then I will announce the winner on Thursday.,

I haven’t even shared what the giveaway yet so I will do that tonight.  Good Luck! 


I wanted to share someone with you…     Cute?  I just met her today, she’s a Persian and lovely.  She’s not mine….well at least not yet, but maybe… I’ll share more about her on another post.  In the meantime I’m loving her little face.

Have a lovely day…  Judi

BLUE Monday and 198th Post and Giveaway

This is my 198th post with only 2 more before my Giveaway for my 200th post!!  I posted about it a week ago Friday.   Let me know in your comment that you would like to participate if you haven’t already done so and I’ll add in your name!  Good Luck!!

Today is Monday…

Blue Monday Instructions

and that means its Blue Monday hosted by Sally from SmilingSally.blogspot.com.  If you haven’t visited on Blue Monday before be sure to click on Sally’s blog to see who is participating today.  Visit the love Blue Monday blogs on her list and don’t forget to leave a post to show you’ve been there.  Enjoy.

Today I’m sharing the beautiful BLUE skies with their billowing clouds over the morning BLUE Lake Ontario waters. This picture was so majestic and so free-spirited….I stood there for some time just admiring the beauty of it.  The clouds were like huge castles lifting up to the heavens.  Everything was so peaceful.  I took this picture yesterday morning during breakfast.  A short time later the skies were no longer so beautiful.  They turned a gray and the waters became choppy.  Rains followed. 

This is the cottage next door with its BLUE shutters.  There is a cute little sun porch facing the water.  Its a lovely spot to sit and admire the BLUE waters and BLUE skies and boats on the water.  Looking past the sun porch far in that direction is Canada where I live.  We look there throughout the day trying to compare the weather there by the skies way overhead.

Sometimes the skies over the water look like this…

Thank you for visiting my Blue Monday.  I hope you enjoy all the different Blue Monday pictures offered today through Sally’s blog.

Have a lovely day.   Judi
