  3. Today is 3 months before many children's, old and young, favorite holiday! Merry Chr istmas….3 months early. OK….for those of you who wait for shopping season, you've been given your reminder. : ) Imagine if someone is told today. Now, wouldn't this be a gift to remember!

    • Thanks for the scare….I mean heads up. So much to do in the next 3 months. It's funny,our girls still love Halloween almost as much as Christmas and they are teens. Never too old for candy I guess. Now they can collect for local food pantry instead of having so much sugar.

    • Our local radio station was playing Christmas music this morning. Because Christmas is 3 months away.

      StormyWV on September 25, 2013 at 2:18 pm
    • That would be the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT the winner has ever received, Trish. Awesome!

  4. Please, let it be me! I so want to learn how to dance the Carolina Shag and would have a great big Shag party to celebrate. What time are they going to call me today?

    Carole on September 25, 2013 at 10:15 am
    • I don't know what time they will call but I definitely want to be on the guest list for the Shag party.

      jazzygirl9 on September 25, 2013 at 2:14 pm
    • You are invited for sure! Hopefully we can dance on the dock! Now I just need a great partner. I'll be on the look out when I move into my new home. Would love to share the experience with my new love.

  5. Oh Mary, My heart sank when I first saw the new post. I tend to have flash thoughts and thought it was the winner even though it was too early. So, there is still a chance to win this beautiful Blog Cabin ! I'm dreaming and keeping the phone close waiting to get that call. Just imagining being there relaxing and looking out toward the water. What a peaceful place to call home. If I am not fortunate enough to be the winner ,I hope one of the bloggers do win. Maybe they would invite us to stop by if we are ever in the area. This home was done so well when the original need too much. DIY thanks for a wonderful journey and yes, good information for fixing our own homes also. My very best to all , Nan ;) <3 ;) <3

    • I'm with ya on that one. The older I get the more I'm ready for a little southern warmth and I'll supply the hospitality if I win. Think we're in for a colder than usual winter her in PA. UUgh….have to pick up a side job to help with the oil bill.

    • I am a few hours to the north drive away from Pittsburgh. I had to quit work this last year. I worked at a Veterans home. My spine is allowing me to walk but it is giving me pain. My oldest son served in Iraq a few years ago. I am not sure if stress somehow causes physical illness or not but I do know I need some healing to occur. I want, I NEED my life back.
