I have been so bad!

And I have absolutely no excuse! So I about to make many amends to a bunch of lovely people!

September

Booking Mama (aka Julie P) way back in early September sent me a message to say I had won The Sourcebooks Giveaway. I got the book of my choice (way cool deal that one)! I picked "Letters from Pemberley" by Jane Dawkins.
Letters from Pemberley by Jane Dawkins: Book Cover
Julie was so nice and I still visit her blog. I do hope she will forgive my late but heartfelt appreciation! I did receive it...it resides beside me in my TBR stack.

Diane of dkMommy Spot (you all must know about her by now), messaged me in September that I had won "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Renewable Energy". DH ran off with that one soon after arrival! He has shown me a couple of things he has found interesting.
Learn About Renewable Energy and Save Your Dough!





















And then later the same month, Doc Nina of playground for parents, messaged me that I had won Cookies...for ME?. Now you gotta know something...these are healthy cookies...gluten free, egg free, and nut free...never had cookies like these! Oh, and now she has some dairy free as well (but I didn't get those). Don't ask me how she did it, but those were good cookies! Especially the lemon iced ones! Jamie, the Chef, has a really cute logo...but you gotta go there to see it! Thanks Doc Nina! (All you parents ought to visit her site!)

October

Bridget of Readaholic, sent me an email that I had won "A Drunkard's Path". I've not gotten the book yet but anyone who has read her reviews knows how she can stir up a reader's interests in a book...which is why I entered and won this one! I visit her sites often. Oh, you caught that one did you? Yes, she has two sites does our Ms Bridget and I check out her reviews on both (and enter some of her contest there as well. The second site was Freebies 4 Me and U, but has now become It's My Life.
A Drunkard's Path: A Someday Quilts Mystery (Someday Quilts Mysteries (Plume Paperback))
November

I got a box from a wonderful friend from FaceBook, Pegge Tennant. She is an Independent Watkins Associate. What's Watkins? Think J. R. Watkins, Naturals. Still lost? Ok, let me take from her site:

Nestled in the Mississippi River Bluff town of Winona, MN., Watkins has been America’s pioneer in natural living since 1868. As America’s original natural apothecary manufacturer, Watkins uses only the finest natural ingredients in its diverse lines of personal care, home care, remedies and organic flavorings.

While Ms Pegge and I are searching about for eggs, we talk about this and that and the other. So what did she come up with in a sus (surprise) box for me?

Organic Cinnamon
Can't read that? Organic Cinnamom (not used that one yet but does it ever smell great!)
Organic Pure Vanilla, 2 oz.
Organic Pure Vanilla! Besides cooking with that, can I put some behind my ears? I love the smell!

Sorry, couldn't find a picture of this one...Flavored Baked Potato Soup Mix. Perfect timing! Weather wet and cold? Soup is what you need! We are soon to break into this one!

No picture for this one either. Cinna-Cream Sprinkles. This one I have used! Pegge, I gotta tell you, it is great in tea!!!

Oh, you want to see what else she's got going? I now have her store site...it's here.

J. Kaye, of J. Kaye's Book Blog, informed me I won an audio of THE SCARECROW by Michael Connelly. She has great book reviews and conversations about books and book blogger questions and giveaways and...!!! You really need to go there if you like books.

This is currently in my TBL pile. So many wonderful books to listen to.
Ms Valerie over at Sweeps 4 Bloggers let me know I won a gift certificate to the Eco Store USA! I can't wait to hear from them! This is a twofer...Valerie's site is one I visit a lot to enter! She has great giveaways that I enter a lot! And Eco Store USA? I have tried their front loader washing machine powder and oxygen whitener. When my DH noticed a difference ...OMG, I almost fell on the floor! So if you can't win it, go visit and buy it!

Jen of Jen's Book Talk let me know I was a winner there. She has a really cute site and loves a variety of books. Her reviews are good and so are her giveaways so head over and check the site out! What did I win? The Gate House.

Ms Leslie of Leslie Loves Veggies told I had won the Bake Me a Wish! Chocolate Torte Cake. Now Ms Leslie, like my friend Valerie, has lots, lots of giveaways that appeal to a wide variety of folks. And she like chocolate as much as I (giggle)! So if you like to enter giveaways, this has become a popular site for me. Now as for Bake Me a Wish!, I defy you to find a cake there that you would not like! I mean, look at this!
Can you see why I can't wait for this to arrive! I'll let you know when I get it if it looks and tastes as good as it looks!

December

Goodreads and Anna let me know on December 1, I am a First Reads winner. You could have knocked me over with a feather! With all the people posting for TO DESIRE A DEVIL, I never thought I would win it...and I did! How cool is this! So you who are in Goodreads, try it. If I can win, you can win! I can't wait for this to arrive to put in my pile!
To Desire A Devil (Legend of the Four Soldiers, #4)
You know I will post a review of this one! Watch for it!

Same day, Leslie of LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH WITH LESLIE, told me her random generator pulled my comment out as a winner of her giveaway for TRIDENT LAYERS GUM. Leslie is a good reviewer and has lots of giveaways. Do check her site out...it is truely ever green!
Just checked the mail and this was the last one. I do have some review to do but I think I need sleep first. Have a good day!
