  19. Hi Marydon, It's so good to hear your feeling better! My husband has come down with a cold so I'm watching him closely, you never know with this H1N1 era we are in, we haven't been able to get the vaccine so we are crossing our fingers. Congratulations to all the winners! such nice giveaways and very thoughtful too! hugs, Jennifer

  21. Congrats to the winners what a fun giveaway.

    The pictures of the hurricane approaching are neat to look at but I am sure not neat to be involved in one.

    Hope this Monday finds you well.

    God bless,

  22. You be careful with that storm coming! :)

  23. Thanks for stopping by. The violet is a start from my husbands, grandmothers violet. She passed this past year. It is sitting my kitchen window with some others that are not in bloom at this time. It has bloomed since it was given to me a couple of months ago.

  24. TS Ida just dropped a bunch of much needed rain on us. We're used to squals here in the Southeast.

    I'm sorry to hear you've been under the weather. [giggle] Hope you're doing better now. The world needs good people like you in it to help make it brighter. :)

  25. I love, love, love cloud pictures. your photos are fantastic.

  26. Congrats to the winners! Wow, Ida is one woman I wouldn't want to contend with. LOL!

  27. Congratulations to the winners. So glad you are doing better. Hugs and glitter, Patti
