This has been a crazy week — working on taxes, worrying about Speck, Chad is leaving tomorrow, the beautiful white snow has turned into the horrible icky mess that we’re tired of seeing.
I know the winter blues are a serious issue for lots of folks but they don’t affect me. My tax prep work is done and ready for the accountant as soon as all the other forms arrive by mail, Speck is doing much better, I’m always sad when Chad leaves but life slows down when he’s gone, this truck doesn’t wake me up when he leaves early in the morning or when he comes in late at night and best of all — he’ll be home on Friday; the footprints in the snow are from the UPS man bringing fun packages so life is pretty good around here.
But . . it is the middle of January. Half of the first month of 2011 is already gone and in order to brighten someone’s day, I’m going to give way a $50 gift certificate to The Village Mercantile! All you have to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment telling me how you chase away the winter blues.
Also, there’s an old church cemetery at the tiny little country church where my grandparents went. They maintain the cemetery in immaculate condition. Most of my family is buried there and I wanted to send them a donation but kept debating how much to send. So, for every comment you leave, I’ll send them $1.
So, tell me how you chase away the winter blues and at the same time, it will help a cause that means a lot to me.
Since The Village Mercantile is closed on Sundays and Mondays, I will announce the winner on Tuesday. Comments will be closed sometime this evening . . around dark. Leave your comment today and check back on Tuesday to see if you’re the winner.
Disclaimer: The gift certificate is paid for by me . . totally by me.
