...So I've been away from the 'puter and blogland for a few days, and thought today I'd pop in for a few visits to my blogfriends. I was strolling thru Joy's lovely blog at SavvyCity Farmer,because I can always count on her posts to raise my spirits, and about fell out of my chair when I saw my picture on her post!
Apparently she had announced me as the winner of her fabulous giveaway on Sunday! Boy, it's amazing the excitement one can miss if she's not au fait (my 5 dollar word of the day) in bloggerville! ;-)

I have won this wonderful book (in which Joy's house is featured) and I can barely contain myself until I have it in my hot little hands! Thank you, Joy, for your generous giveaway, and all your sweet comments you wrote about me!!

Speaking of sweet comments, I felt overwhelmed with gratitude for the very thoughtful and kind comments all of you had made from my last few posts. You have no idea how you buoy my spirits by taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness." {Andy Rooney}

Thank you for adding to my happiness!!
