The Conquering Write-Away Winner

Thanks to the 40 entrants for this month's Write-Away Contest. DeeDee at It Coulda' Been Worse, our guest judge, has done a wonderful job reading and judging the submissions. As mentioned before it was a blind judging and she has picked a winner without knowing the entrants' names or blogs. The quality of writing in this month's group of submissions was excellent and I'm thrilled that so many good writers took the time to enter this little contest.


First Place: Becky at Blessed with Olive Plants around My Table with His Faithfulness

Second Place: Oh the Joys! with Cary and Isaac through Time and Space

Third Place: Vicountess Coralie at Life More Abundantly with The Power Plant

I found your site through "Heffalump. A daily dose of mischief". I am looking forward to reading more of your blogs.

Scrolling down to your Quiche and Cary Grant entry - you mentioned that your husband is "leaving" you for his trip. Whenever my husband travels, I always say he's gone - but I keep being told by him that he's "traveling" - Somehow that makes it better?

Anyway, great to find your blog. I love to write, and it looks like you enjoy the same. I'm new to the blogging world and would love for you to check mine out!
