superawesome saturday

i'm grateful for a healthy week. i spent a lot of time with libby who was on february break and a lot of time with meg and baby jake, who just passed the 16-month mark. i started my bathroom project, and even got Beloved to agree to change the faucet. i got through the first 14 chapters of my current WIP. it's hard to believe next week is the last week of february.

i have a birthday party to go to, a walk planned. tomorrow i meet with the wethersfield writing circle, and laura and i do our first blogtalk radio show at 6:00 PM est. the call-in number, if you would like to speak to us, or get a mini-on-air reading from BOTH of us...please call in at 718-664-6906. we'd love to hear from you!

and... i've begun to plan my SUPERAWESOME SPRING GIVEAWAY... the winner will be announced on MARCH 20...the first day of spring. you enter by leaving me comments... one entry for every comment between TODAY and march 20th. you earn extra entries by becoming a follower (1 for new followers, 2 for previous followers)... by blogging about it on your own blogs (3 entries + 1 for everyone you send here), or by picking up my button (3 entries...an email to remind me to pick up yours earns you FIVE!).

and what do you stand to win?

13 Essential Things for Spring, of course!!! at least, 13 things i consider essential. the basket will include things like stuff to keep your hands nice while digging in the dirt, stuff to help dig in the dirt, and maybe a hat to keep the sun off your neck :). of course spring is not all about digging in the dirt, so there'll be a nice assortment of things to nurture your mind, your heart and your soul. so don't forget to leave me a comment, become a follower, talk about my giveaway... and

FOLLOW WENDA!!!!

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

AnnIe, I corrected my error. So sorry. I thought I had been wrong all along when I saw that Silver's Lure was by ANNE KELLEHER. Forgive from a wife of a Catholic. LOL No whippings here of the hands.

You do not have to send another but there is no way I would refuse what shows up in my mail from you. EVER!

I am so looking forward to searching out your kingdoms and finding where all dwell.

Hi Annie.
I just read about you... :)

Hi Annie! The box'o'goodies showed up Thursday, but I've been waiting to open it because the Princess Nagger wants to help reveal all the goodies inside - she just woke up and is still feeling a bit ucky (had to pack her mouth with gauze since she started bleeding again...ugh!) so later today I'm finally going to do the big 'reveal', take pictures and post a special blog post in honor of your previous giveaway and pending one! ;) I'm so excited to see what's inside...it's been driving me crazy not to look, but I didn't want to disappoint the Princess Nagger by opening it without her... ;)

Martha said...

Enjoy your day, I need to schedule a call in to you and Laura.
Thank you, dear Annie.

Ok I have GOT to be in on this one. Just from all the excitement the 1st Essentials giveaway caused - I need NEED NEED to know Spring is on its way - and of course join in.

I am one of your long time followers (or some say stalker)

I already have your button (and one of these days I'll figure one out for me - cause they are cute!)

And just to add to the fun - I've blogged about it here.http://katsdailyinspiration.blogspot.com/2009/02/spring-giveaway.html
