Thankful Tuesday and a give-away

Thankful Tuesday--

Sunrise in October, (photo not "fixed" in anyway.)
Today I am thankful for:

Friends at church who pray when they say they will and then check up on me to see how I'm doing.

A Heavenly Father who listens to our prayers about the mundane things of life.

New Twin Calves born healthy and hardy.

Fresh banana bread.

Beautiful sunshine and gentle breezes.

An old chair made "new" looking with just some paint.

Health and strength.

Fresh air to breath on my walk.

A 10-min. doze in the sunshine.

Freedom in this country to vote.

Encouragement and giggles via Texting with a dear friend.

A heater at my back on a chilly evening.

Supper out with my Blue-eyed Farmer.

I am a very blessed lady.

And now the give-away.... I was looking back and realized I started blogging on Nov. 8, 2006.  Almost 4 years ago!  I started on Zanga and came over to Blogger 2 years ago I think.  
Anyway.... to show my appreciation to all my loyal readers, I'll be giving away an Amazon Gift Card (denomination to be determined very soon).  Just Comment here between today and 11:59 p.m. CST Nov. 8th.  I'll randomly draw a name and send out the gift card via snailmail, so be sure to give me some way of contacting you for your address.

Tell me how you found my blog.  

And if you are curious to what I was thinking that first day, click the "Random Thoughts" button on the right hand side of the page and scroll down to Nov. 8, 2006.

  1. I just found your blog via a google alert for "star quilt." I enjoy reading an array of quilt blogs. Thank you for the giveaway.

  2. I found your blog because I followed you .... from the rocking chair on the porch at the nook, from the sewing machines and quilts, to the calves named Jerzy, from celebrating the joy of the birth of each of my children, and begging for prayers for the littlest of men. You have always been my friend, and I will always be following your adventures - even if you don't know I'm there !

  3. I was google searching amazon because I was looking for kindles.I saw you mentioned you started blogging on the 8th,my birthday is on the 9th and I am having a starbucks and Itunes to celebrate.
    Please come enter and please count me in on your giveaway. HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY TO YOU!!!!May you have many happy bloggy years ahead of you!

  4. Alas I can't remember how I found you but I'm glad I did....I remember that it was on Zanga. Great post!

  5. Lets see I think I found your blog by way of PennyAnne Poundwise ;-). She had a separate christian prayer type list and I was shocked to see someone else from Nebraska. Who knew we would meet in person and become friends.

  6. This is a really sweet blog. Thanks for the giveaway, and even more for the lovely way in which you share about your life!

  7. I found your blog through another blog, which I visited through another. And when I saw the name of it, it caught my interest, I am not a quilter but I lived for several years in a community where kolache baking was big! So, that is how I found your blog, through kolaches! congrats on your anniversary. Pam

  8. Yes...many of us have so much to be thankful for. :) Stop by for a visit soon.

  9. I've been following for quite a while from when you posted on the Pickle road group. Since I'm a Husker too, I am always interested in what you are doing. How nice of you to do this for your anniversary.


  10. What a great blog - family and farming and quilting and cooking - we share that. I enjoy reading about your money savings, too.
