Rabbit, Rabbit - Giveaway

.Rabbit, rabbit everyone! Happy April 1st. Let's see what April has to offer us.

April is Child Abuse Awareness, Alcohol Awareness and Consider Christianity month. If we really practice the 3rd (by truly emulating Christ and practicing love, forgiveness and healing), perhaps we could better rid society of the first two. A It's Fish Fry Month (fish is soooo good for you) as well as Frog Month and Emotional Eating Month. If you are an emotional eater like I am, work with me to try to fill those voids with healthy things like good food, exercise, and positivity. And if you have down times when you give into #3, please note that while #1 is fine, # 3 is not usually considered an option on this continent! .

April is National Garden Month! That's an easy one to figure; it's the month when the garden really begins to wake up -- and I, for one, will indulge myself repeatly in this observance!


It's National Poetry Month: read some poetry. Or better yet, write some! Here's mine:

April showers may bring May flowers

But April winds make me stay in

And snow may yet make an appearance

But Spring is here! So I don't care-ance!


Some of April's weekly observances that I'll indulge in are - "Laugh at Work Week: 1-7", "National Library Week: 10-16", "Cleaning for a Reason: 17-23 and "Police Officers who gave their Lives in the Line of Duty Week: 18-23". .

Today, April 1st, I will not indulge in April Fools or St Stupid Day (other than being my natural self)! But I will practice National Fun Day and Reading is Funny Day.

Other indulgences this month that I'm considering are:

  • Tweed Day - Apr 3rd

  • Deep Dish Pizza Day - Apr 5th

  • Beer Day - Apr 7th

  • Licorice Day AND Walk on your Wild Side Day - Apr 12th

  • McDonald's Day - Apr 15th

  • Chocolate-covered Cashews Day - Apr 21st

  • Movie Theatre Day - Apr 23rd

  • Dance Day Apr 29th

  • and Honesty Day Apr 30th..

The other thing I want to take part in this month is ....

This is National Letter Writing Month. So, to honor that (I love letter writing) and to honor you (I love my bloggy friends and followers), I'm holding a give-away! I will giveaway a writen letter from yours truly. (Well, actually it will be a "type-written" letter, to be more accurate, as my carpal tunnel doesn't allow me to write much more than one paragraph ... and that's a note, not a letter! I will tell you about the area I live in and my boring but totally enjoyable life; I will go on and on and on about nonsense and drivel -- just like I do in my blog. Why, I'll even write a poem for you about a topic of your choosing. PLUS there will be some other extra goodies enclosed with the letter.


So if you can stand it and want to hear from me personally, please enter! Spread the joy around and tell your friends and neighbours. (Or quite possibly, your worse enemies!)


And remember .................. RABBIT, RABBIT!



Oops! Forgot to say that the giveaway will close next Friday, April 8th.

Good luck! FABULOUS prizes await some fortunate person!
