My dear hubby, Rob, was so disappointed when he read my post from Yesterday with the exclamation of "Where are the Turkeys?" ..... no worries dear husband, those you thought to be Wild Turkeys, were actually really Goblins disguised as such ...
How could this be you might ask? Remember way back on the 22nd of October when I entered the "What's for Dinner" Knorr contest on Mardi's, eat.live.travel.write.com ? if not, you can go HERE to read all about it.
The entry that won me this amazing "Gift Basket of Knorr products" was this one ....

Thank you for hosting this Contest Mardi, and thank you Knorr Canada for sponsoring same !!!
Okay I really could hardly believe this myself, but this was not the ONLY thing I had won myself this week ... I also received a phone call that I had won a FREE BodyTalk evaluation after I had put in my name at the Harvest Craft and Vendor Event I had attended with my friend, Toni with an "i" which you can read all about HERE .
BodyTalk is all new "talk" to me, so I will be sure to find out all I can about it when I go on the 10th of this November, and report back here. There is a website in the meantime for those people who would be interested in checking it out for themselves. Just *click* HERE.
By the way, I did go out this afternoon to buy me a Lotto Max ticket which so happens to be sitting at $5 Million I believe? if I don't buy I will never win now will I? SHOW ME THE MONEY !!!
"It always happens when you are hurting" .... 2 am I am certain I was finally having a good nights sleep when Missy Mercedes started barking, barking and barking, then Lexus started up, then Buddy began whining, then Bandit put his head up to mine to try and get me up.
Finally just before 3:00, I hadn't known the time until I had first called my "Crabby Cabby" to see where he was at with hopes he was close to home to see what the problem with the girls had been. No such luck he was just finishing up with his last call, still 40 minutes away from home. Up I got myself, heading down stairs with Bandit way ahead of me. One at a time I took out, Missy Mercedes, Lexus, then Buddy. Everyone had themselves an equally long "pee".
I returned back to bed laying there until my "Crabby Cabbie" arrived home. I had such a rotten sinus/migraine headache I never did get back to sleep properly. Up I was again after 7 am to go back down to take the "pack" all out. Jeez I was "ticked", as Missy Mercedes decided she wasn't going to listen to me this morning, taking off towards the road with her nose to the ground. Just as she crossed through our cedar rail fence, she finally decided to turn about and come back. Nevertheless, I was not too pleased with her.
It gets better ... once the girls and Bandit had been looked after it came to be Buddy's turn. Oh man, I went to get him out to find he had made himself a mess in his crate ... what was one more thing to do feeling the way I was !
As I said, "it always happens when you are hurting", and boy did I ever get my three out of the way first thing today! Really though to be honest, I was also thinking today, I LOVE each and every one of them regardless. They are very much part of my life, all four of our "Checkerboard Aussies".
I got my Slow Cooker rocking with a new recipe today.

This afternoon I did a couple of Post Cards through Post Crossing to be sent on their way, one to Russia, and the other to Germany.
I love writing letters, even long before I had been a teenager. I wish my neck could take more, but the position of leaning over for any length of time does not do well for me. This is why I am very content with sending off a Post Card or two, or three, once a month ... short and sweet, but still enjoyable.
*Sad* that letter writing has become such a thing of the past ... do you still write letters and cards?
