Heating cost,Ramblings and Giveaways

Happy Lord's Day readers!
I hope your weekend is going well.Mine is good,could feel better..but....The boys are with their mom this weekend since i have felt bad so had some me time.Most of that was spent on
The rain came in last night for a few hours and now the cold will move in during the day.Suppose to be yucky all this week with everyday being a little colder than the last right on thru sunday.I don't know about you but i am ready for spring.aaahh yes..Flowers blooming,the gardening,herbs all around.My time of year.Everything is renewed.
Not too mention the heat cost.I am gratedul i have a fireplace.So cutting wood is my hardest part but so many people rely on oil and propane.It is so high.I am pretty sure there are a lot of people who can't afford to stay warm this year and my heart goes out to them.The electricity bill for a central unit is unreal as well.Maybe things will get better down the road and they will if it is not time for the lord to return.If it is ....well it will get better when he gets here.. ;)
Contest and giveaways below readers..please leave me a comment and i'll return the favor...

Ok, Here is post #100. And my new look for my blog for 2009. I hope you like it. I enjoyed the energy that it seemed to have. Let me know if there are elements I should add or that you have links to that I may enjoy. Thanks.

So for #100 I have to give you a little something.
So I propose to give you 100 items. Yes 100!
This is a grab box of 100 things. It will be an assortment of things that even I am unsure of at this time. I will let this drawing take place on the 15th of January 2009. That gives me two weeks to come up with 100 things. HA HA.In the meantime I will start your box of 100 things. I know there will be chocolate in it. Oh how we love chocolate! And I am sure that I can add a few more exciting things. Hummm, dvds, candles, coffee, tea, books, bath goodies.......the list could go on and on. What do you want in your box of 100 items? I think I need to get a really big box.

thanks for adding my 100 item give away.
I hope your feeling better.
Oh wow, getting to use wood to heat is so great. I know that must be hard to chop but good cardio exercise. Wish we had the means. Central heat is expensive in my over 80 yr old house with no insullation.
