Give Away -- Finally!

Without further ado, our little give away for one of our friends here at Lazy Bee Farm.

In this adorable Snowman tin are: one bar of balsam scented sleigh goat milk soap and one mini-bar snowman in vanilla; a handknit dish / wash cloth; a handwoven red alpaca lavendar sachet, handwoven linen tea towel, a pint of Lazy Bee Farm honey (not pictured) and Victoria's Charms of Tea -- purchased just for this give away!

To enter the drawing, please leave a comment for one entry. And, if you are so kind as to mention this on your blog, please leave me a note for a second entry. The winner will be drawn on New Year's Eve using the random number generator. I can't wait to see who starts off the New Year a winner! We have a saying here in the mountains... what you do on New Year's is what you do all year...

Now, as Inigo said in The Princess Bride, let me sum up...

As happens nearly every end of the semester, I get a computer virus -- I suspect from a disgruntled student -- just saying... This one wiped out IE, so I haven't been able to log in to the Internet from home. Add to that the fact that Blogger wouldn't let me log in from anywhere, it is a formula for great sadness for me!

Other events...
  • The Airman is home for two weeks! Joy, joy, joy! Did I mention that I was happy??
  • We have more than eight inches of snow on the ground (the second bout in two weeks)...
  • A frozen water hose will explode if you touch it in subfreezing temperatures and the water is still on... and said exploding hose can knock one little farmer flat on their hinney whilst rather large dogs run the other way...
  • I love Mr. Hardy who invented our new wood stove. If I weren't too old, I would have his baby.
  • While other people might think it is odd, I personally think a wood splitter is a fine Christmas present. What would make it finer would be having someone else use it.
  • My nephews can say "Aunt Matty" 400 times in less than 1 hour. I wish my name was something else...
  • I am not too old to see Tangled. Neither is the Airman.
  • Never move a 42"  loom when there is a project in process. I can't even write about this yet.
There is much more, but I will spare you the details for now. I have missed you all terribly and can't wait to catch up on my online reading! What has been going on in your world!?


  1. What an "event-full" holiday you've had Matty - but the one event that really touched me deeply was..."moving a 42" loom when there is a project in process". I can only imagine the chaos to which I hope you are able to restore order.

    Happy New Year, friend!!!
