We have a winner of The Adventures of Tomato and Pea – by Erik Weibel!

Just a quick post to let everyone know ….

This evening, the name of each person who commented on my interview with Erik Weibel was placed in the random name picker tool I got for free online. (http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-name-picker/)  It’s the first time I’ve used it for this and it works so well I will probably use it for future draws.

I contacted the winner and already received her mailing info. So, with no further delay …

Patricia Tilton!  

Congratulations, Patricia!  You will be receiving your book soon.

Patricia replied very quickly to my email, saying, “Thank you Lynn.  I’ve been wanting to read Erik’s book.”

Thank you, everyone, for participating in the draw to win a book. I know Erik appreciates your support. You can find his book on Amazon.

Stay tuned for more reviews, interviews, book giveaways as I am able to conduct them. I have loads of books to lose myself in!  🙂

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Wildlife out my window; reminder of chance to win a book

First I want to remind you to enter the draw, if you haven’t already, for a paper copy of the book by Erik Weibel. The Adventures of Tomato and Pea is a good one for that special child in your life.

Now I want to tell you about something fun. Today I glanced out the window and was surprised and delighted to see a young deer! She was making her way through the snow on the far side of Dad’s lawn, following the brook to the back of the property. Upon reaching a bend in the brook she stepped in and took a long drink of cold water. Having enough, she raised her head, looked around and crossed the stream to climb the hill on the other side. Soon after the deer had ventured by, a cock pheasant hurried along the brook and also made his way up the hill.

It’s always interesting here at my dad’s. One never knows what will appear in the brook or on the lawn, at or near the feeders, or just passing through. Besides deer and cock pheasants and their hens we have watched ducks, a fox, raccoons, hawks, many other birds including cardinals, a kingfisher, and grey herons. 

The images I’m including were not taken from today’s sightings, but they are my own pictures. The first photo is one I took of a young deer in my own driveway one winter. The others were taken at Dad’s last summer.

I just wanted to share this since I hadn’t been able to post over the weekend.

A final memory jog … the draw for The Adventures of Tomato and Pea is tonight, Tuesday, March 11 at 6:00 EST. Please encourage a new author and leave a comment on the interview.

What wonderful sightings have you had this season?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
