Sit Back and Relax Give Away

Photobucket


My boys have been sick with colds so I haven't been blogging in the last couple of days. What better way to redeem blogger slacking than to have a give away?

Both boys are better and back in Kindergarten and at the sitters so I am calling this the "Sit Back and Relax" Give Away!

It includes one of my cookbooks, a Nora Roberts romance novel (Cordina's Crown Jewel-it's not new, it's a hand-me-down), a rooster coffee mug and 3 little Fall scented candles.

You can put on an easy crockpot recipe from my cookbook, grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, light your candles and sit back, relax and read for awhile! That's my idea of relaxing, I just can't seem to find the time to actually do it!

All you have to do to enter is tell me what you do to relax when you can sneak a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of life!

If you post about the giveaway on your blog, leave me an additional comment with a link to it and I'll give you another entry.

Give Away will end in 1 week October 29th at 9:00 a.m. Central time!

What a generous give-away! I did not know you had a cook-book! And I love Nora Roberts, she is one of my favorite authors and I've not read this one!

One of my favorite relaxations is browsing a Barnes & Noble Bookstore! Getting a coffee at their Starbucks and finding something interesting and settling into one of their cozy chairs!

Arlene said...

Oh this is a nice give a way!! Lets see what do I do to relax......I go outside with a cup of coffee and sit in my chair in the woods and relax and listen and watch. I am always amazed at what nature will give you when you need it. For instance today I was in the woods looking at a few places I was planning on putting some hostas when I stood still I looked around and there in the brush were 3 deer all I saw was white tails. And no camera!!I love nature.

Cheryl said...

Glad the boys are feeling better!


I love reading Nora Roberts, but don't have that one. And my candle suppy is gone, so that would be nice. I can bet hubby would love for me to win the cookbook...lol

My relaxation....sitting back and reading blogs. I am addicted and love every one.

Thanks for the give-a-way!

My relaxation is a nice hot shower after the kids have all gone to bed at night - no one banging on the door hollering "Mommmmm!!!" Then I put on my comfy pj's and climb in my bed and turn on the electric blanket and grab whatever book I'm reading at the time.

Country Whispers said...

Relaxation is a nice hot bath with the lights turned down low followed by getting comfy in a warm bed curled up with a good book.

Steph said...

I love to sit outside in my swing, or watch the food network! lol

Callie said...

Good to hear that the boys are doing well and back in school. I love to read too. Hope you get some time to enjoy a good book.

marissa said...

I knit. Voraciously. It's my meditation. Quiet time in a comfy chair, listening to the clackery-clack of my needles, making some practical item of clothing like socks, or hats, or mittens or sweaters for some family member or friend. I do a bit every day; it's what keeps me sane. (What?? I'm sane!)

Shelley said...

The cold season is definitely upon us! My hubby and stepson both have bad colds right now. Hope your boys feel better soon! And what a great giveaway you are having - that rooster mug is ADORABLE! One of the ways I like to relax is go out and sit on a chair on the deck of my log cabin and look at the lake, breathe in the fresh air and watch all the birds on my feeders.

Sunny said...

Ooh! I want to be entered in this give-away! What I do to relax ..... I go out to my herb garden and run my hands over the herbs and the scents and smells are immediately soothing. If I have a few more minutes, I will sit and work in it while listening to the birds.

Sunny said...

PS. Oh yes, being it is coming fall time my greatest relaxation comes from hand quilting. Right now working on the border of my GFG quilt handed down to me from my grandmother.

Sunny said...

Susan said...

Came over from Sunny's like to sign up for your nice give away.

My favorite relaxing is to read. I have several books going most of the time and when ever I sit down for even a short time I'll pick the current one up and read.

Arlene said...

Opps I forgot to tell you I posted your give a way on my blog!!

Jessica @ Colorado Crafter said...

Listening to music and singing along. I don't sing beautifully anymore, but if I turn the music up loud enough I sound just like the artist! ;)

Very nice giveaway! I love your blog and recently started following. :) I think I found your blog from Chickens in the road...?

Glad you posted today over at Chickens in the Road! I haven't been by in a very long time, but this was sure a great day to drop in again - great give away! And such an appropriate one this week. Should I happen to win, I will be in surgery at the time of your "drawing," so don't be alarmed if it takes a few days before I claim it; just getting ready to enjoy it! (Was that enough guilt to make everyone else want to withdraw their comments??? ;) )

Thanks for doing this, and having such a nice blog.

I love to burn some scented candles and lose myself in a good book. I also enjoy baking yummy things to eat. Oh wait! What a coincidence...........you have exactly what I need in your giveaway. ☺☺ {Hee Hee} Seriously. I really do LOVE those things. AND I've been known to park my booty on the couch and watch movies. Ahhhhh.

When it all gets to be too much for me, I get in the car and ride the country roads and play some music really loud, like ZZTop or Willie Nelson. If I cant run away from it all. I go sit in my chicken pen and tell it all to my girls. I can sit and watch them for hours.

Daniela said...

Carol said...

This is my 1st time visiting your blog. I really enjoy it and I am going to be a follower. I am glad that your kids are feeling better. I have 2 boys ages 7 & 2. I could really use a day on the couch reading a good book, drinking a hot cup of tea, while burning a candle and have something cooking in the oven from your cookbook.
Thank you.
Carol

What a great give a way! Please enter my name. I love to read (and write), I love candles and roosters and I love cookbooks. I like to relax by just going for a walk outside and getting away from it all.

Rose said...

Hi, I found you on Sunny's blog. I am her sister. When I relax in the summer it's sitting on my back deck and watching the birds on the feeder, or getting out on my motorcycle. Now that weather in WNY is getting colder I will have to rely on my other outdoor relaxation, photography which my younger daughter has gotten me interesed in. (Stop by my blog to see my latest photos.)

Rose said...

I just posted your link to my blog and now have started following you as well as adding you to my blog list of ones I follow. Nice to meet you!

Barb said...

I love to sit outside on my deck with a cup of coffee and listen to the sounds of nature (birds, wind through the trees, etc.). This helps me refocus and forget the woes of the day.

I too grab a mug of something warm (green tea or unsweetened apple cider) and curl up with a book.

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

Sue said...

When I get a chance to grab a few minutes I generally curl up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of tea. Of course, I have a dog at my side two on the floor in front of me and seven others spread out around the room.
