Memory Monday

Here it is another Monday.  Another start to another week.  And I did not want to get out of bed this

The weather in this part of the world is so weird.  The only thing people around here ever know to expect about the weather is to expect the unexpected.  Saturday was beautiful, and temps almost hit the 90's.  It was terribly windy, for around here, but I guess some people would have said it was.  Sunday was down-right hot.  I'm talking summer-time-play-in-the-water temps.  Except that the wind blew one mph for every degree.  I swear the wind was blowing no less than 40 mph, and guests over 60.  Definitely not a good day to go out and play!  This morning, it was 32 degrees and snowing when we woke up.  REALLY!?!  Is this some kind of cruel joke mother nature likes to play on us?

We are coming up on the severe weather season here in the Texas panhandle, and that is my favorite time of the year.  Call me crazy, but I love severe weather.  I love the thunder and lightning, and watching the storms roll in.  I even love when we have a chance for tornadoes.  Its been awhile since I have seen one, but I remember standing outside with my dad when I was little and watching the clouds.  Anytime the tornado sirens went off, we went running outside!  My dad worked for the electric company, so if the power went out that meant he had to go to work.  Those times were no fun.  I cannot wait for the severe weather to kick in!

Moving on.....
On Wednesday, I started a giveaway for a set of dishcloths from 13 Plum!  The contest ended on Friday, but we do have a winner!!  "Anne" left a comment for me, and was the chosen winner!  Congratulations!  Anne, if you will please send an email to, so that I can get those dishcloths sent out to you!

I do have every intention of holding more and more giveaways, so be sure to check back with me!  Another great new blog for giveaways is called Giveaway Corner.  On May 12th, they will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to 13 Plum!  How cool is that!?  Be sure to check her blog out!  She is just getting started so be sure to tell lots of people, and check it out!

Today is the LAST DAY for my 15% off Spring Sale!  If you want to get anything in the winter wear or shawl section of 13 Plum, then you need to go now!  All you have to do is enter the code "LASTCHANCE" when you are checking out!

I 'spose that is all for today.  I have so much to get done today, and don't know how much I will get accomplished.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean about this weather. It was warm, and now it's been frozen and snowing again, and then today it gets up to 70 but is tornado and thunder-fest everywhere. How the heck do you even dress for this ridiculousness?!
