Dylusion Winner Announced!

Hello Everybody!

Sorry about leaving y'all in the lurch the last couple of days!  Simply just not feeling up to par!  Being in the car while having a cold hasn't helped either, but I'm not complaining, just wanted to explain my absence and lack of wanting to do really anything but veg!

We "landed" in Vicksburg, Mississippi sometime around 7:45 p.m. Monday night.  Got up yesterday morning and drove through Vicksburg National Military Park.  Oh My Gosh y'all!  Totally the most amazing thing to do in the morning.  It was beautiful and very peaceful. (I'll blog pictures of this later...) I really want to plan a trip to go back to Vicksburg and dig into all that history.  I was so rushed this time around.  I hate that!  But better planning next time will solve this.

I got home around 7:30 p.m. last night, took a shower, ate a little something and fell into bed asleep!  I was out until 6:30 a.m. Can you imagine?  I'm not the best sleeper in the world but I slept for 10 whole hours!!!!  By my sleep standards...That's a whole lotta sleepin'!!  I got up still feeling yucky but a bit better.  The more I thought about how I felt, the worse it was.  So today, I just tried not to think about it.  How's that!  By the way everybody, thank you for all you kind thoughts you sent my way!  I appreciate you all!

OK, enough about me!  Let's get on to the good stuff!  The Winner of My Favorite Things Dylusioned! 

I think you all did an awesome job and a ton of you guessed it correctly! I printed out each email and went through them all.  Then I took the ones that had all 17 correct answers, folded them in half and numbered them.  I then went online and used a random number generator to pick a number and the number picked was 2.  Number 2 was.......SUSAN PRICE!!!!!  Congratulations Susan!  Please email me you mailing information and I will get your Dylusional Prize to you.  A special THANKS to my friend Dyan Reaveley for being so kind to sign her book and donate a tag!  She's a sweetheart Y'all!  Thanks again Lady Dy!

Thank you all so much for playing along with me!  Thank you also for joining me on my vacation.  It was so much fun and I hope that you weren't too bored with all my posts! Back to the routine today.  In a way, I'm glad to have some normality and structure back.  Time to work and craft.....

Please take a moment tomorrow and join me over at Graphic 45's blog for another reveal of a Ladies Diary Project.  I love this one.  It's simple, small and sweet.  Hope you like it too...

Have an awesome night and thank you all once again for everything!

Yours,

  3. Congrats to Susan!! And oh wellll... heck, somehow I missed in the game instructions that we were to email on the 16th (I just went back to look at the original game announcement post because I wanted to know how everyone had emailed already...lol) and I've been patiently waiting to read a post that you wanted our answers. LOL I had all the answers correct too. :o( But I had a good time following all your fun adventures and I enjoyed the game any way!

  9. Congradulations Susan :) I am so envious, but I can see I missed the list by one - it was those darn muffins :( Hope you are feeling better soon Jim, like I said before, vacations always seem to be hard on a person, you need time to recoup from recouping lol - I know I do. Really enjoyed the trip, can't wait for the next one! Get some good rest and get better soon, need to hear your smiling writing and crafting.

  15. Congrats, Susan! Take it easy, Jim. I had "the ick" two weeks ago, and am still suffering from the after effects. Really knocked me out. Hot tea with peppermint was the most soothing thing I found. Feel better, buddy!

  16. Glad you are home safe and sound. Hope the ickys get gone sooner rather than later. Again, it was such a pleasure meeting you at the Doodle. Look forward to seeing you again soon. (And Dyan told the class a little secret on Wed about YOU!!!) Woo Hoo is all I have to say about THAT!!!

    Hope you feel better Jim!!
