When I mention platform beds, I bet your first thought is "a place to sleep". Well, that's because you're a normal person. I, on the other hand, am reminded of our raised garden beds.
It's no secret that we've been doing a lot of gardening around here. And it's no secret...to me, anyway...that once Shane is in the garden, he usually loses track of time. That's why I've been thinking about getting a sundial for our garden.
Besides looking really cool in the garden, a sundial would give Shane a better idea when he needs to put down the hoes and rakes and head in for dinner. He might even be able to figure out that if it's too dark outside to see the sundial, then it's probably time to call it a day.

Of course, I'll have to pay for mine, but if you want one, here's your chance to win it for FREE!
I'm partnering with CSN Stores to give a gift card worth $60 redeemable in any of the CSN Stores online. You can use it to buy one of these neat-o sundials or anything else in their stores.
I'm keeping it simple this time. There are just three ways to enter:
1) Leave a comment telling me about your favorite time of day.
2) Follow my blog or subscribe in a reader. Leave a second comment to let me know you do.
3) Blog about my giveaway on your own blog, including a link to this post. Leave a third comment to let me know you did.
That's it! I'll accept entries through the end of the day (midnight) on Tuesday, July 13, 2010. I'll use one of those random-numberinator things to pick a winner the following morning.
Be sure to tell all your friends to enter, too.
