120: Fall into fall…a giveaway and apology.

120: Fall into fall…a giveaway and apology.

Hey all, I have to apologize for not writing in here sooner….well, no I really DON’T have to apologize.  I am just saying that cause I have been SUPER busy, and Linda and I have been camera searching so we can give you cool photos like the other cool kids do. 

 And last week when I was driving home, a motorcycle dropped and slid across the road into my car.  Still trying to access the damage to my car. It doesn’t LOOK bad, but it doesn’t drive the same.  He hit my front driver’s wheel.  It was very unsettling.  The good thing is that I wasn’t hurt, just rattled, and he wasn’t killed.  One officer said that if my car hadn’t been there, the biker might have gone through or over the guard rail and down at least a 25 foot drop…maybe more.  So God used me as an angel?….huh, as much as I don’t like my car, this isn’t my plan, but you know it reminded me how much we are not in control of our daily lives as much as we think we are.  I am glad the biker guy was okay.  He seemed like a nice kid (listen to me…kid? he was 20something….I am so old…NOT!!) 

Okay, that traumatic news out of the way….I am participating in a giveaway group of bloggers.  SO I am giving away a roll of 10″ squares from Moda along with some other stuff that I have to get together for this. I was supposed to have this done by the first….what are we at now the 5th?

  So here is the deal….This giveaway is part of a big group of giveaways.  Go here to get info about the other great giveaways as well, and to participate in THIS giveaway, leave me a comment telling me what your favorite colors are for the fall/winter season…pretty simple huh?  I will draw from those that comment on the 16th of October (the 15th being the last day to comment)…and you will get the prize…kind of a surprise since I don’t have pictures yet, but I will get pictures up for you by this weekend. 

Tomorrow is Linda’s and my 19th wedding anniversary….pretty cool, we will go shopping for a camera and dinner out on Wednesday though cause I will be at my so-called “real” job–the one with bigger paychecks so far…

Oh, and NOW I can use WordPress as a scapegoat for the no picture dilemma!!  The system isn’t letting me ad any pictures!  SORRY about that…hope to have something up soon…don’t go away you all!!

  • Sorry to hear about your accident. I hate driving in traffic myself, too many people not paying attention these days. Glad you both were ok.

    When I think of autumn, I think red and gold, those colors are so beautiful together.

    I am glad you wern’t hurt, bikes can be so scarey. Several years ago a biker slid and went down right in front of our car. We didn’t hit him but when he got up he kicked his bike, as though it was the bikes fault. it was funny but it could have been worse. thanks for being a part of the give away.

    October 7, 2008 at 12:44 pm
  • Hi, Scott,
    Favorite fall color? Well, I can’t just pick one as I have been out taking photos of trees in our neighborhood and they are sooooooo pretty. I think they are prettier than they have been for years. Someone said it has to do with the drought in our area. Oh, but anyway red would be my favorite if I had to pick one but when you put the red, yellow, orange, rust, green and brown together it is simply gorgeous and then they are all my favorites!!

    Since fall and winter are two very different seasons here in Iowa, they require two very different decorating styles. In the fall, I pull out my burnt oranges, deep reds and dusky/olivey greens. Then I favor silvery-blues with red accents for winter.

    Wow – sorry to read about your accident. Glad that you and the motorcycle driver survived!

    I guess my favorite fall colors are the colors of the leaves as they turn! I’m looking out the window at a beautiful Sunburst Maple that’s every shade of orange and next to it is an ash that’s bright yellow – then there are the blue spruce (which don’t change) but add to the drama of it all! Not to mention the bright blue sky! Gorgeous!

    Please sign me up and thanks for participating in the giveaway!

    Thanks for offering the giveaway. Love all the colors of Fall but I think my favorite is gold.

    I love the warm colors of purples and reds… Being a native Floridian I don’t get to see trees changing their colors…
