Sounds of the pond and a giveaway

What a lovely morning... I am sure I will have to close the slider soon, but for now, the temp is not up there. The sound of gurgling water from the little pond is so soothing. I must introduce you to a fellow who is hanging around quite a bit....
This handsome fellow is about 10 inches from nose to tail tip. He has a black band under his chin and then a band of turquoise and pale yellow for his belly... there have been times that he is just outside my bedroom window when I open the verticals! Quite a sight.

Moving on....I bet some of you do this: you are in a check out line and pick up a magazine only to find that you already have it or after buying it without thumbing through it, you discover you really do not want it. Well------- here is what I did in the last few weeks....

Just look! Here are not one, but 3 that I do not wish to keep. So......... if you are interested in having one, leave me a comment for which one you like... you can list all three, then I will send out you choice with a little something added. Who knows, you may be the only one commenting and get all three. I will draw on Saturday night, June 9th.

I spent part of my morning with the Geek guy... somehow I lost several pictures that I took yesterday.... he could not find them so they are somewhere within my computer..... that is all. Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your time with me.... thank you for the kind thoughts you send my way and email....have a great day.

Hi Gracie, that's so nice of you to offer these mags. I don't have any of them, so anything would be exciting to me! Thanks for the chance.

First of all - you are brave. I wouldn't like that guy hanging out, especially near the bedroom window. He's big. And don't they get larger? I hear they are good for the gardens, they eat bugs - But still!!!! Oh I would love to win any of the three magazines. The top Cross Stitcher Magazine - I love that old fashioned sewing machine pictured. IS THAT red, white and blue I see photoed also...I see some bunting to....Okay I would really like to win that top magazine. I've got to stop drooling now. Have a great week Grace.
love Annette
