Well, the giveaway announcement day has arrived and gone.
I was all set to reveal the winner on Wednesday night when in the early afternoon my Internet connection went on the blink.
After what felt like a million
times of clicking off my modem to reboot it but with no satisfaction I decided to
call AT&T. After a long time on the phone it seemed it
was a problem that would involve maintenance to come out to check the lines.
They scheduled it for Saturday.
I thought..... WHAT Saturday!!!!
I can't wait til Saturday.
The memory of me in the
public library last January was coming back to me.
Ugghh I don't have time for that now!
But what choice did I have?
I told George they were scheduled to come out between 8am-8pm
(no time commitment there) haha!
Which cracked him up too...not really.
He said he'd take a look at it though I insisted I did everything I could already.
Seeing as AT &T
will charge you as soon as they step one foot
inside the premises I thought it can't hurt.
I went back to work.
A half hour later he tells me
I had Intranet again...(that's what he calls it).
For someone who never gets on the darn thing
except to check the weather or to watch a movie trailer
he's an ace trouble shooter.
I was happy.... just kidding.
Are you still with me??
I had this idea that I would enlist the help of one of my cats.
I had gotten the names and numbers all filled out the night before. I
wanted to sprinkling the pieces of well folded paper over one of
them and the one that landed on their head would be the winner.
Bella was the one I decided to use...but she was already in the loft sleeping.
Didn't seem fair to wake her just for my amusement.
So I used Charlotte instead. She seemed willing but wanted me to pick her up
and cuddle more then play my silly game.
I invisioned scattering the papers like confetti with one single paper landing on her head like a light feather....instead they just plopped on her back.
Less graceful then I pictured it in my head:))
I think I was holding back not really wanting to make a mess!
Then plan b was to have her put her paw on the winner.
This wasn't exactly very scientific.
I just picked the one closest to her paw.
At this point she was totally disinterested.
Just like a cat.
what.... you need a name?
It's Zuzu of A Cottage In the Woods!!!
It's kind of a funny story, Zuzu and I have been following each other for awhile now,
but she just recently joined as a follower....so I guess it paid off this time to wait to follow:))
She has a wonderful blog.
I know we all say that, but it's really true. She lives in the mountains of Colorado... in well
A cottage in The WOODS! hence the name.
Her and her husband built there home and they lead a simple but full life
entwined with nature.
Some of the scenery from around her home can bring a tear to my eye
they are so beautiful!
I hope you will go visit and say hi.
Thank you for all your comments and letting me know what you
love about Easter.
I hope you all get to spend it with loved ones or family.
I wish you all a Happy Easter!!!
guess where I am?
