And The Grand Prize Winner Is . . .

After a couple (or six) interruptions this morning, I'm finally getting in here to my computer to announce the winner of the Pay It Forward book exchange.

On slips of paper I wrote the names of all you readers who indicated you'd like to receive a copy of Catherine Friend's book, "Hit By A Farm."

Then I trekked up to hubby's office and put all the slips of paper in my new winter flap hat.

I told him he had to close his eyes, mix the slips of paper around with his fingers, and draw one out.

And the winner is . . . JILL!!

Jill, if you go over to the right hand side bar of the page, click on the "Contact Me" button, and send me an e-mail with your mailing address, I'll get the book off to you pronto.

Thanks to all of you who entered. Wish I had had a dozen books to send each of you one.


  1. Congrats, Jill! I'm sure you will love your new book.
    PS, nice handwriting!

  2. Mama Pea,

    Thanks for choosing my book. What a marvelous idea... I think I might steal it for my own blog....

    And I'm sure you are adorable in PJs. It would totally make my day to stop by and find you comfortable in PJs---I'd think---Wow, what a great idea!


  3. Lori - Thanks, Lori. The older I get, the more my handwriting reminds me of my mom's. Strange, huh?

    Catherine - When I "won" my book way back in August, I knew yours was the one I wanted to offer in turn. Great idea to do it on your blog. Would also be a great idea for you TO POST MORE OFTEN!! I know, I know. There are only so many hours in a day. But your posts are ALWAYS so interesting and funny and enjoyable.

    Me in my PJs . . . yeah, can't you just see me down on my hands and knees in ruffled pink baby dolls pulling weeds in the garden? No, never mind . . . don't try to imagine it. ;o)

  4. Oh FairyBlogMother-- just wanted to let you know I'm fulfilling my part of the Pay It Forward bargain now. Post is up on my blog!

  5. MaineCelt - Oh, oh, oh, I so wanted to be in the running for your Pay It Forward but I guess I'm not eligible, am I? Rats.
