"On The Ninth Day of Christmas......."

"On the Ninth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me.....Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids A Milking

Seven Swans A Swimming
Six Geese A Laying
Five Golden Rings!
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

My goodness, but the hour is late, and this day is almost past!  Oh dear, oh dear, what shall we do? The Nine Ladies Are Still Dancing, and it is almost time to go to bed!
But wait, there is a sweet little gift lying on my table here,
and it is the Ninth Gift for the Twelve Days of Christmas!

This lovely issue will be yours for the asking, if your name is selected
in the Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Drawing
on January 7th.
So, dear ones, please follow the guidelines for telling me that you
would be ever so delighted to receive this gift, and if your name is chosen,
I will be happily telling you on January 7th!

For now, the day is about to end, and I am about to turn off the lights,
and say "Good Night, Good Night", until we meet again tomorrow.....
Sleep well.......


  1. I'm asking and would be ever so delighted to receive this gift.....

  2. What a lovely cover. I bet the inside is even better. When my parents were still alive, Daddy always gave Mama a box of Russell Stover chocolates. They were married on Christmas Day and that was Mama's anniversary present. Of course, she shared so we kids looked forward to that box of chocolates every Christmas as much as Mama did.

  17. Hi Kathy: I just became a follower of your lovely blog, and I look forward to reading your posts.

    I would love a chance at winning this pretty magazine... why you ask? Well first and foremost cardinals were one of my Dad's favourite type of bird (he passed away almost 3 years ago at the age of 68). Since then, I have been really drawn to them. When seeing one this time of year, it adds an otherwise bright spot to white, dull landscape.

    Happy New Year, and all the best in 2012!


  18. I am another one who loves Cardinals. I think because one of my favourite colours is red. I would love a chance to win this magazine.

  19. I just love cardinals. So Christmassy! Please consider me in your drawing. Thank you!


  20. Is it too late to get in on this one? For some reason my Google Reader shows a whole bunch of posts I missed here??
