Another Update and a New Sweeps!

The view of our former cabin-home, as seen from the island that sits across from it. The tree next to the deck, toward the left side of your screen, is the one that came down in the storm. Now it will be a cabin.

Today I thought I would take a few moments to update everyone on our house situation, as things have progressed. For new readers, the cabin on the Mississippi River that was our full time home, had a tree fall on it in a violent storm this past spring. There was tremendous damage to the home and personal property within, so I have been temporarily staying in a nice fifth wheel camper since that time.

Now, we have decided to buy a new home in the Quad Cities area of Illinois/Iowa. Though we loved our life on the river, excessive flooding in recent years had created too much hardship to be able to continue living there full time, with the turn of events. I do believe we have made the best choice we could.

Now, we will be putting a new roof on the cabin, to get started with the extensive work that needs to be done. With that done, we can then continue to work on various projects as we see fit, without the pressure of it being our sole place to live. This will again make doing these things an enjoyable task, as opposed to a stress-filled chore. I still love it : )

In other news, a while back I reported to you in this post about winning third prize in a Garden Tower Giveaway, of a $100 off coupon. Being in the flood survival situation that I was in for about 12 years, a deck garden was very important to me, so I had looked forward to getting a Garden Tower for some time, to try it on for size. Unfortunately, it didn't work out at the time.

Well, the good news is that they recently sent me a second chance coupon! Since the new home has a small fenced in yard, it will work well for our dogs, but not so much for a garden of any sizable area. So, I am thrilled to say that I was able to order a Garden Tower with the second chance coupon, for our new house now! Yay!

With this bit of good news, I found that Burpee is offering a Garden Tower prize in a current sweepstakes, so I thought I'd list this one for today. It really is a magnificent prize! Of course, the leaf mulcher and Burpee gift cards are certainly as welcome, as any gardener knows!

Burpee's Fall in Love with Gardening Sweepstakes

* Grand prize is a Garden Tower 2 and a $150 Burpee Gift Card. Total ARV $510.
* 5 Second prizes, each a Leaf Eater Mulcher. ARV $199.95, each.
* 10 Third prizes, each a $50 Burpee Gift Card. ARV $50, each.

One entry per person/email address. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 or older. Ends October 26, 2015.
Good Luck!

Are You Ready to Score Some Vacation Perks?

The perks of sweepstaking are certainly abundant. Sometimes there are coupons just for entering, which is always a nice benefit. Yet, the biggest perks and benefits are often found in the actual prize packages. Today brings the opportunity to win some nice travel perks, built right into the prize!

These prize packages contain some of the things that one doesn't always get with travel packages, so it is certainly an exciting win for someone to score. Tours are one of these little extras, to make that vacation so memorable. Here, today, there is also the chance to nab some winter gear (including snowboards and whatnot), for an outdoor adventure while you're traveling about. Of course, gift certificates for fine restaurants are certainly as much of a treat!

On another note, over the years I've read comments from various sweepers, saying that vacations are actually relatively easy to win, if one wants to focus on this category. They are generally abundant, and are somewhat less in demand to entrants than some other prizes may be. Don't quote me on that, but that's what I've heard. It is not a focus for me, personally, so I couldn't say from my own experience. Still, I could use a good vacation right about now...

In the meantime, today's post is short and sweet, giving me a chance to do some catching up after some time away. I hope you enjoy today's sweepstakes!
