I Won!

Country Boy and I have been busy today so I just logged into Blogger about an hour ago.  As I was catching up on the blogs I read I saw that Marissa from Life On Our Side of the Mountain had announced the winner of her 1st ever Giveaway sometime this morning!  And guess who won?  ME!  I was so surprised and excited!  Here's what I won...

It's a Belle Maison Candle.  Isn't it pretty?  I think the colors will go perfectly in my living room!  And I can't wait to smell it!  Yay!

OK, I'll calm down now *smile*!

Today was laundry day so that kept me busy in the morning while Country Boy put up some more fencing along the road.  We are having to install the fence in sections since it is so costly.  We started a portion of the fence last year then recently a neighbor graciously gave us some 1x6 fence boards that he no longer needed so that helped stretch the fence a little further.  We still have some boards left but we need to get some more 4x4's before we can go any further.  Next up will be painting the fence since our fence was 'painted' with Saddle Brown stain/sealant and the boards we were given are painted barn red.  We'll be painting all of it brown (eventually!).

This afternoon, Country Boy and I did some errands.  After picking up items at several local shops we decided to drive a bit to the nearest Fresh Market (a really cool grocery store!).  I was looking for coconut-flavored liquid Stevia.  They didn't have it.  But, I got some nice Vanilla Roobios loose tea and he got some steaks.  Oh yea, I got my Snow Crabs, too!  They were cheaper than our local grocery store!  I'm guessing that I'll have to go online and see if I can order the flavored Stevia from somewhere.  I heard you can get it at Whole Foods but I have no idea where the closest one is and with the price of fuel, it would probably be cheaper to order it online!

Tomorrow we are going to see the ICCA (International Coin Collectors Association) which is buying precious metals, coins & currency.  They are in a town not too far from us for the week.  Since we have several old coins and bills we thought we'd drive over and see if we can get anything for them.  Once I am finished with this post, I will be doing some research online to get a general idea of the value of what we have before heading over there tomorrow.  They are also interested in sports memorabilia, war items, historical documents, fine art, comic books, dolls, trains, jewelry, etc.  Should be interesting!

OK, I'm back to being excited again, yippee!  I encourage you to check out Marissa's blog!  (click on the link above)  She has a wonderful blog about her life on the mountain and I know you'll enjoy it!  

 Till next time,

:) I am happy that you are happy!

I like the new fonts you have on your looks great!

Coconut flavored Stevia?! That sounds good! I will confess - I love coconut flavored coffee creamer.

I hope your old coins brings some good $! Sounds like an interesting place to check out, especially the war items and historical stuff. That would be right up my alley. :)
Good luck to you and hubby at the ICCA!
