a birthday giveaway!

Woo hoo! Heart of the Matter Online turns one year old this week! And to celebrate they are hosting a TOSGA (The Old Stuff Give Away) contest. Feel free to join in by finding a gift to give away like scrap supplies, unused curriculum, hobby materials, books, whatever! Go to this LINK to get all the rules and details of the contest so that you may participate, too, or just to get the list of everyone who is participating this week.

My giveaway gift is a Wild Goose kit entitled "Wild Wacky Weather". You know how we homeschoolers always buy way too many things that often end up sitting on a shelf. Well, this is one long forgotten thing I found on the back of a shelf this past summer when I was doing some deep cleaning for a garage sale. I had originally purchased the kit for my boys to use when they were all of grade school age and the kit is still wrapped in cellophane. Oh well! It will still be a fun kit for someone else to use for their homeschool learning adventures!

To enter my contest, please tell me what your favorite weather is in your comment. A winner will be drawn on Saturday, January 10th. This contest will be open to US residents only.

May all your days be sunny and warm!

My boys would enjoy this kit. My favorite weather is a sunny day. Even if it's cold outside, the sun puts a smile on my face. :)

Sunny and warm!! (Especially right now since it is so dreary and cold.) Bring on the sun! :)

My favorite weather is a spring day with warm, soft rain.

What a cool kit. My kids LOVE Science! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

This is sooo hard to answer. I love a warm sunny day with a few big puffy clouds rolling through.... but I also LOVE thunderstorms (as long as I'm at home). It's a toss up but I'll go with a 70 degree, sunny day.

I think I would have to say my favorite weather is about 75 degrees and sunny. But I also really like a crisper 45 and sunny...perfect running weather. We just left Alaska where we were having your sort of weather...well below zero but bright sun! I enjoyed the novelty of it, but it was quite strange to realize that it really wasn't a good idea for me to stay out too long taking pictures! :)

My favorite weather... if I'm going to be outside, I'll take 70-75 degrees and partly sunny. If I'm going to be inside and have nothing better to do than to curl up with a cup of coffee and a good book (like that ever happens), then I like to listen to rain on the windows.

This is something I'd do with my 10-y/o. HER favorite weather? Snow and lots of it. And her favorite kind of science? "Science where we DO stuff, not just read about it." Exactly the kind of science Mom is bad at. Therefore, kits are great. Free kits are even better.

Oh, PS-- comments seem to be disabled on the post page itself; I had to go to your home page and hit the "5 comments" button beneath the post. (And I know I probably just increased the competition by saying that, but oh well.)

Hi Tammy! I'm not entering the contest as my kids are now out of grade school. I just stopped by to simply say hello!

I'm doing my best to try and stay connected to my blogger friends. Lots of days I miss the boat but then I get a chance to catch up!

Take care.

My favorite weather are the crisp, cool days of fall, before it gets too cold, but you may still need a jacket or sweater. Add to that one of those blue, blue fall skys and a little color in the trees and I can't help but feel totally alive.

This would be great for homeschooling my son. Thanks for the chance to win. My favorite weather is sunny but with a nice breeze to keep it cool.

Thank you all for stopping by as just thinking about my favorite weather is enough to make me smile!

I did check my comments by going from the link at HOTM directly to my post page and didn't have any problems with the comment box working. I do hope it was just a momentary internet hiccup!

Hi Tammy,
Thanks for having this giveaway.
I believe my son would enjoy this. I think it would go perfectly with our Creation Science unit studies we are doing this year.
My favorite weather is in the Autumn & Spring after it has just rained and we open the windows. The new smell & breeze is so relaxing. Definitely a Gift from God.


Rebecca said...

My boys would love this book. My favorite kind of weather is sunny, about 70-75 degrees. The kind where I can open all the windows and let the fresh air in.

This looks like so much fun!!

RebekahC said...

This sounds like a fun prize. I'll enter please. My favorite weather is when the temps are in the mid 70's to mid 80's and it's sunny. Aaah. Sounds delightful right about now on this dreary, cold winter morning. hehe


Shannon said...

What a great prize - thanks for offering it!
I do love sunny days, but right now I'm enjoying the cold, snowy weather - weird, I know, but I'm originally from the South. Even after 10 yrs. in OH I still enjoy the snow. :)
