Love Thursday - I Love To Be Outside

I haven't taken part in Love Thursday for awhile. I've been distracted, I think. Not on the look-out for hearts lately. That can't be good - nobody should be so distracted that they miss out on hearts. I need to fix that.

Here are the hearts that live right outside my front door. My front door is just inches away. Hey, c'mon in. :D And this is a close-up of a heart that my sister gave me a few years back. I love my sister. See the fuzz on there, it's left-over from Halloween 2007 spiderwebbing. It's hard to get rid of all of it, always a bit still hanging around when I hang the Christmas lights. Anyone else have that problem?
That reminds me, I need to decorate for the holiday. They are painting the apartments and I've been waiting to see how fast the painters are, because as I mentioned above, that webbing, not so fun to clean up. The wind has proven tricky and that appears to be working in my favor - the painting is slow-going. I'm going to decorate. I will get to it tomorrow. I'll surprise Sarah when she gets home from school.

Today I got to do something fun. I did the random drawing that picked the winner of Dating Dames.com's Blogtoberfest prize. I was so nervous, afraid I'd screw it up somehow, but happily I can assure you, it's pretty much goof-proof. You see how many comments you have (in my case, I had 190!!!), then you go to this place that picks the number for you online. You input some info - like pick one number, from 1-190. The number comes up, you contact the winner by email, she sends you her contact info, you send it to the vendor, you write up the "We've Got A Winner" post, and ta-da!! you are done..... until the 17th, when it starts all over again with a new prize-sponsored post. I wish I could do a prize post a week over there.

Well, it's late and I've got a stack of library books waiting for me. I wish you a very happy Love Thursday!
