I noticed that I now have 450 followers. I know they come and go, but 450 is a nice round number. So, I thought, why not have a giveaway. Just leave me a comment telling me what you're happy about today, and be sure I can reach you after the draw; the draw will be on Sunday.

    Oh Colette,
    I am so excited-we have a bluebird couple who have built a nest in a box we put up. I thought they had left only to see both of them out near it today. Spring is definitely here.

    I am happy today because I managed to get out of bed and move around. Any day you can do that is a bonus indeed. I so admire your work. I have been lurking here on your site for a long time.
