What a busy day. Lots of work at work, grocery shopping after work, and then I felt the need to be a foodie till my about 9:30pm. I made myself a pork chop with roasted asparagus and honey balsamic glazed carrots (yum). Following that I canned six jars of strawberry jam and made olive and sun-dried tomato tapenade. But believe it or not today's post isn't about food.... it is my blogaversary!

It has been two whole years of blogging, unbelievable. In honor of my two years typing I decided to have a sweet give away for all you faithful readers (and the newbies too).

Fun thing number 1 to Give Away:
Hand Spun, Hand Dyed Yarn

This lovey skein over here on the right is 320 yards of my personal spindle spun super wash wool. It is called Sapphire Rising.

Fun thing number 2 to Give Away:
The HDR Photo Above

In honor of my two years I'm gonna give my hubby a little boost as he prepares to open his Etsy shop this week (since there isn't anything there just yet have a look at his Flickr)! Some lucky winner will receive an 8x12 photo of the gorgeous fence and sunset shown above.

How do you win these exciting items you ask? Well, let me tell you.

Leave a comment with "Yarn!" or "Photo!" or both! The two winners will be posted on Friday.

I plan to post each day this week and with each additional post you can make another comment that will be entered in the drawing. So, that means you could have your name entered up to five times!

What are you waiting for my friend, post your comment and share the fun with your friends.
