But first of all, THANK YOU to everyone who has been visiting and following my blog, both newbies and oldbies. KarenG. is hosting a totally awesome BBQ on her blog, and I know a lot of you found my blog through that event. I'm so happy! I promise to stop by all your blogs soon if I haven't already.
Today I was busy walking in our town's State's Day parade and performing in The Valley's Got Talent competition. In other words, I haven't been in front of my computer much. Our little singing group didn't place in the top three (though we did have to make the top ten to perform today), but we had tons of fun. I'm so used to rejection from my experience with the publishing industry that it didn't bother me not to win. I had a personal victory in that I wasn't as nervous as I usually am when I'm up on stage in front of people ... and I actually enjoyed myself, as opposed to feeling frozen with terror.
So, yay! Great day!!
And now for the winners of my BOOK GIVEAWAY:
Congratulations!! Please send me your snail-mailing addresses at a2sonnichsen(at)gmail(dot)com.
But that is not all. Oh no, that is not all.
I also want to give away TWO consolation prizes. I have two bags of Chukar Cherries chocolates that I'm anxious to send to two lucky, consolation-prize winners.
And the winners of the chocolates are:
Krista Lynne Jensen
I hope you ladies like chocolate! Chukar Cherries is native to Prosser, WA (the town where I live). They are yum, yum, yum. So, please send me your snail-mail addresses and I'll get these off to you pronto. Hopefully we'll have some cool weather so that nothing melts in transit. *fingers crossed*
I think that's all from here. Leave a comment and let me know how your Labor Day turned out. Did you do anything fun? Different? Extraordinary? Or was it a normal vacation day? One more bonus-day of summer?
