ApRil GiVEAwaY and SaTurdAY RoaD TRiP

Hey Y'all!
Happy Monday! I don't know about the rest of y'all, but we had a drastic change in the weather today. It has been so VERY nice here for the past several days, just like SPRING! We woke to pouring rain and howling winds this morning! Seriously thought for a minute that I might be in Kansas! After the 70 plus degrees on Sat. and Sun., the temps are dipping into the 40's or below tonite. One local weather guy even mentioned snow flurries!
But on to other news....
This is the April giveaway over at my web site! A fabulous package with a black basket filled with mini pillows, homespun cat pillow, Cinnabun room spray, grungy tapers, mini stenciled sign and a jar with a homespun cover, filled with rosehips. I think almost anyone would love this to add to their prim collection!!


April Giveaway Package .....

Also over at my web site, you can save 20% on your order thru the 13th of April. Check it out as I will be adding new goodies all this week.

I also wanted to share our little road trip on Sat. Bill wanted to go eat breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Clemmons, which is not too far, but a little farther than we normally go to eat. He thought that we needed to drive his car since it never gets driven anymore. He got a company car several months ago and we really don't drive his car much anymore. I think the Taurus sat in the garage for a full 3 weeks without being moved. ( It actually had tons of sawdust where I have been cutting wood and sanding out there. I'm sure that some little ol man or woman must've wondered what the heck was on the car. At least it gave them something to talk about. Hee Hee!!)

Anyway, after eating breakfast we went to Statesville to get candy. Yes....candy! Not just any ole candy, but Russell Stover Candy! (I don't even know how far it is from our home, but it is a pretty good drive.) One of our favorites is the Pecan Clusters and we bought a box of 36, shaped like eggs !!! YUMMY!! They are such a treat for me!

Outlet Store in Statesville....the sky really was that BLUE on Sat.


Really cute sign out front....
Bag that lists all the stores. Do you see one near you???


We bought enough to get TWO bags this trip. A couple of gifts (won't spoil the surprise just yet)!

and TA DA!!! Our all time favorite!!!!!

It really was a lovely day for us. I say we are so EASY to please these days. We have finally learned to enjoy the simple things and to take a little time to notice the trees, flowers and even the turkeys across the street at our neighbors, but especially each other! After 30+ years it's still nice to spend the day together doing nothing in particular, but taking a drive and buying candy.....

Until next time.

Hugs and Blessings,

Shari

Who doesn't love Russell Stover (or any other kind of chocolate if you're a woman..LOL), Sees, and here in PA we have Daffin's! Love your blog and I'll be back every day to check on what's going on in NC. We lived in Myrtle Beach, SC many years ago before it got REALLLLLY built up and loved it. Didn't like Hurricane Hugo too much, though :)
