I'm writing two blog posts today - for a very special reason.
Wow - I'm completely blown away.
A few weeks ago I entered a blogger give-away. Kirsten, of Sustainable Suburbia wrote to me to tell me that my name had been drawn from the hat.
I was very excited to be the winner, but was worried that it would cost Kirsten too much to post it to me all the way from Aussie. She replied: "Don't worry about the
postage Dani. I said anywhere in the world, and I meant it - I just figured if
the postage was too much I'd buy another copy on the book depository (free
postage world wide), and give the copy I have to someone here in my local urban
homesteaders group. :)"
And Kirsten did just that.
I am speechless. I have just received a brand new copy of "One Magic Square" by Lolo Holbein, and it looks absolutely terrific! Jam packed with brilliantidea's, companion planting hints and even recipes. Even a chapter entitled "Soil Secrets".
So - if you will all give me a little time to get my hungry eyes between the pages - I feel a well-deserved book review coming on :)
Thanks again, Kirsten. Thank you very much. I feel very honoured and privileged. I'm taking it to the farm with me tomorrow - and it is going to have pride of place on my bedside table.
