100th post/halloween giveaway/whatcha workin on wednesday......

time marches on....

apples need picked...

brussel sprouts need picked and frozen...

leaves are turning gold...

nights are below freezing...

we freeze when we walk in the mornings...

more wood needs cut and hauled...

calves need sold...

grapes need juiced...

as always, the house needs put back together...

but...

this is my 100th post...

and...

a giveaway is in order!

there have been many things i wanted to post about in the last few weeks, but time here in the stone house has been an illusionary thing, hence, the lack of posts.

btw, julie, welcome and thanks for visiting me. your red cliffs remind me of my uncles home down along the colorado river in moab.

back to the giveaway...

in the spirit of fall, and my 1ooth post, and in honor of what i fondly call the "beginning of the holidays", i'm having a halloween giveaway for my followers. this is just a little prim something to go with what decorations you already have. simply leave me a comment and tell me you would like to be entered. the drawing will be saturday, october the 17th.

this happy giveaway includes 3 prim tucks, 5 very prim candy corn ornies, and 3 beeswax tapers that i picked up at rendezvous this fall. (bowl not included)

i just want to leave you with a song today, one that you can sing out loud at the top of your lungs! hopefully you will teach this song to a child or grandchild, and they can sing with you at the top of their lungs as well!

a pumpkin carol for all you died in the wool halloween lovers!

sung to the tune of silver bells...

we're on the sidewalks, we're on the porches,

dressed in costumes to scare.

through the city we're ringing the doorbells.

trick or treating, candy eating,

gooey stuff in our hair,

but the most fun is shrieking out loud;

shivery yells, shivery yells,

that's the halloween nitty-gritty.

moan and groan,

leave us alone;

halloween 's just one night a year.

so go ahead, follow me, leave me a comment, and you'll be entered for the giveaway, and...

don't forget to go see leslie @ My Country Home

for what ya workin on wed. see what has been keeping the other gals busy!

and.....don't be afraid to SING this festive song out loud! :-0

Beth at Aunties said...

Oh Mercy!
You have been busy and still have lots to do before the snow flies.
On our way back from Colorado we were detoured off of Highway 6 today, and almost drove over to your part of the country when we almost missed our turn off. I guess it would have been just to finally say Hi and give a good friend here in blog land a HUGE hug!

Can it already be 100 posts? Wow and congratulations for 100 delightful and uplifting posts. I would love to be entered into your Halloween contest.:)
The words sound great in my head. My sound on my computer is gone until I find a tech who is smarter than me to fix it.
Thanks for sharing the song. I am going to use it for VT!
Congrats again!
~♥
