Wow ! You ladies rock !

Blessed is how I am feeling at the moment ! I  never in my wildest dreams thought I would have 50 let alone 52 followers so fast .Because who wants to read a backwards farm girl's tales,and see the things she gets into daily.Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The friends I am making by doing the blog  are just amazing.It has been so much fun to read all the wonderful comments left by all of you.I am truly in awe of all the help and encouragement that I have received.

Since reaching 50 followers happened so fast I would like to leave the giveaway open till midnight on Saturday and I will announce the winner on Sunday after I get home from church.Blogger has been having issues with comments (had a few problems myself yesterday )so maybe by leaving this open it will give others a chance too.

There is another reason for leaving it open as well...there has been a death in the family and we will be going for the viewing tonight and services tomorrow. With dealing with that and the poison ivy it will give me a chance to get the names all lined out .As an added bonus I will be giving two extra chances to the signs up that I had till I reached 50 followers after that goal was met I will add an extra chance to anyone that still signs up.I hope that everyone thinks this fair,but don't worry there will be more giveaways in the future.

A note about my husbands aunt that passed ,she was another blessing I have had in my life.While not real close she always had a smile and a kind word for me .I was always made feel welcome and I rejoice in the time I spent with her .She brightened one's day by just being around them .Aunt Kit had been sick for a while so I feel her passing was yet another blessing for she is at peace.Please keep her children and family in your prayers .Thanks so much !

If you would like to join in the giveaway feel free till Saturday at midnight (central time ) and if you are having comment issues just email me and I will add you to the list. Blessings and hugs ,Jen

Sorry to hear that you have lost someone in your family. It's never easy to go to a funeral even if you aren't close to them. I agree with you on meeting so many nice friends on blogging. I had started blogging to help with losing my mom last year to breast cancer and my husband is very ill.
I work 40 hours a week, tend the farm, look after the animals, take care of my husband and the list goes on and on. I needed some me time and blogging has helped me alot. So many nice people out there and it is fun too. I started blogging in January and have 60 followers now. But it is not about the numbers it is about the friends you meet.
I'm glad to meet you and I think we may live close to each other.
I am in Southwest Ohio about 10 minutes from the Ohio River. I will look up your town and see.
We may be neighbors.
Have a great day and congrats to you on all your followers.
Country at heart
