The Winners Are......

Since I only had 3 enter my blogday contest I have 3 winners!

Tee, kindly send me your address so I can send the canister set to you!
Amy, I have a very special retro surprise for you so email your address to me so I can send it on its way to you! Thanks to all who left comments for my blogday and if you will email your address I will send you a bar of Miss Diva's goat milk soap! It's my blogday and I can do what I want!

Today has been so HOT! I was determined to stay outside and get things done and I did. I only came in to get something ice cold to drink and to wash my face to cool off. I spent 6 hours weeding (not many weeds thank goodness) and mulching the front veggie and flower beds. I washed all the bird feeders and refilled them. Washed the hummingbird feeders and filled them. Washed out the birdbaths and filled them. The birds must have been hot too cause they by passed the feeders and went straight to splashing in the birdbaths. My mulch pile is getting a little lower but I still have more than enough to mulch all the other beds and shrubs. I bought some plants off the 50% off rack at walmart and spent the afternoon setting them out. Still haven't gotten the tool shed all cleaned out but I might be halfway on that and plan on working on it tomorrow. I made a new soap scent! Wanted to make one just sold by us and after a few trial and errors I got it. Of course I named it Hidden Haven Goat milk Soap but it has a delightful scent. Its a little of the outdoors (raspberry and honey) and a little of the indoors ( vanilla and brown sugar) with a secret ingredient added. Had a lady make a one of a kind soap mold for me so the soap would have a homestead scene on it. I am so excited with how everything turned out! I am now working on a scent for a Miss Diva Soap. And no it won't smell like a goat!! I will let you know if I ever get it worked out. The same lady is making a goat mold for me for that soap. I have fresh tomatoes from the garden tonight with fresh lettuce and onions. Going to make me a wonderful salad for dinner along with a tall ice cold glass of applemint tea. First time I have ever grown applemint and its yummy! Since I finally finished my book review I can watch some DVDs tonight that I have been wanting to watch for weeks. At least I will try to watch them while I pay bills but I have a feeling the TV will be watching me sleep as I am tired. Not from the work but the heat. I am determined to adjust to it as it will only be getting hotter as the weeks go by and I do not want to turn on A/C. My ancestors made it without and I know I can. Well my salad is calling so have a wonderful evening and a great weekend. Don't forget all the many blessings that have came your way today.

It was soooo hot here today too. I don't know how you survive without you AC. I just can't stand the heat. I get headaches if I get too hot.

I would love to have a bar of your soap. Please let me know how much they are,

I just stopped to think about everything I have to be thankful for.

Peace

You are such a trooper Peggy!
I'd love to order some of Miss Diva's goat milk soap, but unfortunately don't think it is allowed through our strict Customs regulations.

Patricia said...

6 hours weeding is not many weeds?! ack!

i am such a slug.

Tee said...

The soap sounds like it smells delicious! You need to set up an online "store" so it's easy to buy from you. That's something I'd be interested in for a Christmas gift for my older sister. I know she'd love it.... Laughing about the "goat soap" LOL.

My 4 yr old wants to know if the music on your blog is a "mouse playing the piano" - Hee hee! What an imagination!

Thanks for the canisters in advance! I'm so excited! I'm going to go Email you my address now! :)
