A Gift, Check It Out!!!

A big welcome to those Blogger friends who’ve decided to follow me, please sit back and enjoy the ride :)

Because my friends have been patient with me being away to work on my parents’ estate, I’m gifting one lucky Blogger friend a LIFELINE Weather Resistant Survival Kit.

This weather resistant ABS case has a carabiner attached to it.  Inside the case are a first aid 5 ¾” X 3” bandage, aluminum flashlight, 1 battery, mini multi tool, 1 emergency whistle, 1 emergency candle and 1 quick-fire starter.

In order to win, you must leave your name or username (how to contact you) below in the comment section.

This will automatically qualify, and enter you in the drawing.  Please don’t expect an individual acknowledgement of your entries in this drawing.

My gift opportunity will only be offered to those who are 18 years of age or older.

The deadline to enter for this gift offer is Monday, January 25, 2016, at 1:00PM (CST). All entries will be placed in a bowl and one name will be randomly drawn from the bowl.

If your name is picked as the winner, I will post your name on my blog in the morning of Tuesday, January 26, 2016 along with my e-mail address. 

The person selected will have 4 business days to respond to me, by e-mail, with their physical mailing address. The gift will be mailed to the address provided at no cost to them.

If I receive no response from the selected party, their entry will be null (void), and I will be required to pick another person.  

Only 1 entry per blog site please, multiple entries will be deleted.  

Because I care about my Blogger friends, I’ve purchased this LIFELINE Weather Resistant Survival Kit. FYI, I am not getting paid to promote this product or advertise for their company.  This Survival Kit makes a great kit to add to your car, backpack, or purse.

Good Luck!

There are 66 days until spring arrives. Have you decided what you’re going to plant in your garden come spring? 

Are you the type of person who saves their own seeds to use next planting season?  Or are you the person who receives catalogs and needs time to place an order?

I’m the person who does both…..I save seeds, and I compliment my seeds with a nice order through several out-of-state vendors.  

Many of my Blogger readers are experienced gardeners, who know exactly what seeds to plant or order, how to prepare their garden beds, when to plant, and when to harvest.  However, there are some of you who don’t quite understand when, or how, to setup and start your own garden.  

Here’s a great website to help walk you through the garden process, it’s called Vegetable Gardening Online.  

This website talks you through how to design your garden, the zone you live in, when to plant, and what type of garden best to start with.

Are you ready to start taking those baby steps of becoming self sufficient by first starting to grow your own garden?  

It doesn’t hurt to try.  What are you waiting for?
