Taking Care of Business

I am home again after spending a great week away having fun with our grandkids. It always takes me a couple of days to "take care of business" when I get back. There is laundry to be done, phone calls to return, groceries to be bought, errands to run and blogging friends to visit!
But the first order of business today was to select a winner for my 200th post giveaway.

So all the comments went into a big bowl. I closed my eyes, stirred them all up and picked this one. Congratulations Heidi!

Thank you for all your wonderful comments. I was blown away by how many of you responded and overwhelmed by your thoughtful and generous comments. I have printed them all out and I am going to make a little book to put them in. I'll show it to you when it's done :)

In addition to all your generous comments, I had some awards waiting for me.

Cielo from The House in the Roses gave me this one.

Connie awarded this one to me.Karen from A Scrapbook of Inspiration gave me this BFF award.

Thank you to all of my blogging friends. I am giving these awards to all of you.

It's going to take me a few days to repsond to all your comments, but I plan to visit each of you soon. It's good to be home!
