Thanking my Sparkfriends again! :-)

Thursday, November 04, 2010

Hi everyone!

Thanks so much, both for the congrats over winning all that dog food, and for all the kind wishes and goodies you gave me for my birthday. :-)

I will catch up properly with you all really soon. I won't be around a lot the next day or two though, because I have a lot of stuff to get done. I just didn't want anyone worrying, and I know there are people I owe emails to that haven't heard from me yet either. I will get to you all, I promise! :-)

Have a terrific day everyone!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

I won a prize! And not on Sparkpeople!

Monday, November 01, 2010

Hiya all,

This is unbelievable! I have won a year's supply of dog food! There are codes on the Bakers Complete boxes - Sophie's favourite food. I loaded one onto Purina's system tonight, and I won! They will be in touch in the next seven days to verify the win.

A month ago Sophie was at death's door, and now she is feeling better and has a year's worth of food heading her way. Meals and doggie treats galore! This will be a HUGE help because I am struggling to find the money for the medication she needs to be comfortable. With her food and treats covered, the vet's bills will be easier to handle.

Can this really be happening?

I am finding it hard to believe that this is true. In fact, I'm convinced that someone is pulling my leg mightily! LOL
Time will tell I guess.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

GRATITUDE. I HAZ IT!!!

Congratulations! I can tell you (as someone who used to be a serious sweepstaker) that people DO win these things! Really. I've won cash, trips, crates of towels (from a Ramada sweeps) and all sorts of other stuff.

I'm very happy for you...and your dog!

A big thankyou to all my sparkfriends

Monday, November 01, 2010

Hi everyone,

I have nearly three hundred emails to go through, some dating back to early October. I am finding goodies I haven't yet said thankyou for, and a ton of blog and Sparkpage comments I haven't managed to respond to yet either. I don't know what happened to have me get so far behind, though I suspect not feeling so well for some time, and all the Sophie worry didn't help.

Anyway, I just want you all to know that I am very grateful for everything you guys do for me. Sparkpeople just wouldn't be the same without you.
Hugs,
Lex xxx

  Like you Lexie, I'm still trying to catch up on answering emails and reading blogs. October was such a busy month, I was exhausted by the time I got home from work.
It's a new month and a new building for me, so I'm planning on making a new start on getting some emails answered*grin*.

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,

Q: Do zombies eat popcorn with their fingers?

Sunday, October 31, 2010

A: No, they eat their fingers separately. *grin*



Well, as usual TOM timed his arrival to perfection. Mind you, it could be worse. He was due to arrive on my birthday, so at least I'll be over the worst by then. :-)



I have been very busy today, taking all my ornament shelves and altars apart and cleaning the area. I like to do this during the three days of Samhain. I tend to think of Samhain as the start of the year, so it is a form of spiritual spring cleaning I guess. :-) With Samhain running from the 31st October to the 2nd of November, and then my birthday on the 3rd, I get four days of holiday! :-)



I still have some shelves to finish and I'd like to get them done before bed, so this is a very brief blog. Honest! LOL



I walked for 20 minutes and Tiggered for about 30 minutes today. I have decided to go back to strength training from Monday to Saturday with Sunday off. Even on a normal week Sunday has a lot packed in, so I'm happier having it as my strength training rest day, with Friday as my Walking Plan Rest Day.



So, apart from a late start, which was actually an hour earlier thanks to the clocks going back, I've enjoyed my day of 'Work as Worship'. :-)



So, with those last four shelves calling me, and the Ancestor Cake still to lay out, all that remains for me to say is:



from me and:



Hope you are having a good one!
Hugs,
Lex xxx
