Giveaway Basket this week

I am having another giveaway this week, so please leave me a comment. You must be a member of my blog to enter. This week's giveaway includes: 3 room sprays,(Gingerbread, Clove and fireball cinnamon spray) assortment of tarts, 2 bars of prim soap and a little prim doll. I will pick a winner Saturday night. I will place all the names in a basket and have my husband draw one.

Well, my dad seems to be doing better, he is still in the hospital, but hopefully be coming out soon, they are talking about him going to rehab. I guess to get his strength back up. I have been taking care of his little poodle. I have to say, he is a little terror. My dog gets along with anything, but this little dog chases my cats back out the cat door as soon they try to come in. I have hardly seen my gray cat for the last 2 weeks. My black cat (Crybaby) seems to tolerate him, but the dogs get into it everynight, usually over a little piece of food, the poodle is guarding. He won't eat it, just wants to sit there and growl whenever anybody comes by.


We were at the hospital last night visiting my dad, and my daughter send us both a text message with a picture of a little puppy. She has been begging for another dog for awhile now, and we said no. But of course, her boyfriend just happens to bring home a little puppy for herand says it is for her birthday. I think they had it planned, but she says no, with a big smile on her face. So I guess, we will have a new member of the family shortly. Just what we need is another animal, living in town. This dog looks like it is going to be a big one, she said around 40 pounds, when it is full grown. She had been wanting a pit bull puppy of all things, and we said no way in town, so I guess, we should be thankful it is a mutt.
We are having a new air conditioner put in the house tomorrow, so I am going to try to stay in my sewing room tomorrow and get caught up on sewing. I am hoping to get some of my pumpkins made this weekend. I had been working on Santa's, but now it is time to get some scarecrows and pumpkins made for the fall shows.
My friend Becky from Orlando, Fl. just sent me this, I wanted to share this with you all:
