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.
I'm thinking of this one:
Or this one:
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.

McVal: That's probably my least favorite time of day. :( It's busy/stressful for me trying to get Shane in the house for supper (it's always that late in the summer), the kitchen cleaned up, Kat bathed and in bed, etc. I take it it's not that hectic at your house.
Katrina: I used to like staying up late. But I'm old now and can't do that anymore. LOL!
My favorite time is early in the morning, 7am, no one is up but me, its "me time" , email@example.com
My favorite time of day is anytime that is quiet. During school year it would be after 9:30 when everyone else is in bed, during the summer it's in the morning after hubby leaves and kiddo is still asleep, so around 8-9am.
I blogged about the giveaway also on my Winners post. I'll try to blog about it again in next couple days.
I love morning time.
My favorite time of day is when my baby girl wakes up and smiles at me.

My favorite time of the day is between 5:30 pm and 7pm. My husband has just come home from work and it is when the two of us talk have dinner and just relax together.

My favorite time of the day is 4:00 p.m. when hubby and I both get home from our part-time jobs and get to spend time together. We sit outside on the patio with our Shi-poo and discuss the day's events, or sometimes we just sit quietly just knowing that we are there for each other.

To comment on your reply to me yesterday, yes of course I still follow you. (You're in my reader--consider this my leaving another comment telling you that.) I know I didn't do very well at reading and commenting here, so what I did recently is I sat down and did some soul searching where blogging is concerned and I cut all of those people in my feed reader that I didn't truly consider my friends. You are a "friend" to me. Now, I don't tell you that because I'm saying you should be honored (I'm not that great LOL) but I tell you that because now I am really focusing on my "friends" blogs.
God, I hope I didn't sound conceited and annoying.
Oh, and I'll do a post before the 13th.

Love the sundials! My favorite part of the day is the evening. From around 6:30 to 10, when I get to relax after work with Hubby. One the weekends, my favorite part of the day is ALL DAY LONG.

I want to tell you my favorite time of day anyway!
Its right after 8pm, between 8:01 and 8-30 when I am checking that teeth have been brushed and tucking my guys into bed. I have to sneak kisses from Logan, he is "too old" for mommy kisses. I think he just likes the game of me pinning him down to kiss his head. I do it for the giggles LOL.
I love listening to My eight year old tells me the best part of his day story,and how my big and brash ten year old who can do it all with NO HELP! turns back into my little boy at night time, hugging me tight like he did as a toddler and letting me pull the covers to his chin.
