Agnes Chooses A Winner!
This is Agnes, and she is going to help me choose a winner to receive either some Wee Little Sheep or hand spun wool yarn. Agnes resides in my dove pen, where she is supposed to eat all the seed the doves scatter and waste, and that is a lot of seed. ( you can see it , and I need to clean this pen)
Last Saturday the eggs Agnes has been diligently sitting on began to hatch. 6 of the 7 eggs hatched by Sunday evening. Note the egg by Agnes. She has NOT given up, no, no, NO!
Agnes rolls this egg around with her and the 6 chicks all day. When she rests, she tucks it under her fluffy little breast while her chicks scamper around her and under her wings.Here is how I will choose the winners with Agnes' help. I made a BIG chart and drew squares enough for all the names of you sweet people who left uplifting comments on my blog. I put your names in the squares. Your names are in as many squares as you left comments since I started the contest. I promise! Here you can see Agnes checking this out, and she touched every square, she LOVED this big piece of paper in her pen. Now, whichever square Agnes leaves a dropping ( as in poop ) in, that will be the winner! It is called Chicken Bingo in 4H.
Agnes took her time I tell you. She also took the chicks with her, and they were so cute, pecking at names, me poised to photograph the winner......well...she took her time. I did some chores and then......
And LOOK! English Cottage in Georgia. I love her blog, and Agnes graced this square with her 'stamp of approval'. I thought this is the winner, and it is....but Agnes had another winner in mind too and she showed it by leaving something very precious to her....
She rolled her egg onto Mary's name! Mary also has a wonderful blog and she too is uplifting and encouraging, and she makes very nice soap, I know because I bought some and will buy more !
Thank-you Agnes, you have been very helpful . I hope you, your 6 chicks and little Eggbert have a pleasant evening and sweet chicken dreams. Maybe Eggbert will actually hatch out with so much love tending him. Thank-you all for your comments, for the time you take to read my blog, and especially for so much encouragement and prayer. I hope I can reciprocate even a fraction.
