And the Winner is.............

First of all, let me say that I'm so sorry to keep any of you waiting! It certainly wasn't supposed to be that way! We had circumstances not expected, so the drawing of a name was a little different than what I anticipated.

It was supposed to be a typical Thursday around here (that's why I chose this time). We would take a break from school to draw out the winner. But instead we were at the Dr.'s office in town. My hubby, Jason, has been off work sick since Tuesday with bronchitis and a bursted blood vessel causing much pain in his leg....and the cure ended up being worse than the sickness...bless his heart! He had an allergic reaction to one of his medicines (which one we don't know) and he's just been miserable....no sleep for him (or me for that matter). Good news was that he did not have a blood clot in his leg though! So long story shorter, we were back in the Dr.'s office this morning at 9:30 a.m., but we did take the laptop along with us so we could check for last minute comments before the drawing and add them to the bucket and choose a winner.

Here's the bucket of entries. We really did need the bucket (for room to mix them), as we actually had 181 entries total. Jason mixed them up really well numerous times!



Of course, Joy "had" to be the one to pull out a winner....so with eyes closed, she reached in.......and pulled out a winner!



Would you like to know who it was? hee! hee!

Okay, well it was..............



AnnaSam (It's Harvest Time)! Congratulations! I hope you love your goodies! I was looking on your blog and everything looks so fall festive at your house! I'm so glad these goodies are going to a great home! :) Email me from my profile with your shipping address and I'll do my best to get this out to you tomorrow!

Thanks to everyone that left such helpful ideas for us and especially for your kind comments! I appreciate each and every one! Thank you to all the faithful blog readers as well as those that just found me! Now I hope to catch up on blog reading and visit all of your blogs.....after a very unusual week! I'm having computer...blog and forum...withdrawal! lol! We're supposed to be visiting our friends, Betty and Richard, this weekend in the Ozarks, so we're looking forward to fellowship and relaxation! (And did I mention that she has super fast internet connection...it's like computer heaven there!)

So "talk" to you all real soon! Thanks again and I hope you all have a wonderful day and upcoming weekend! I hope to be back posting again tomorrow!

Hugs,
Tammy
