Just the Day for a Cup of Coffee

Between five o'clock last night and seven o'clock the temperature went from summer to fall. Just like that! I went inside at five and I was comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans. At seven when I came outside I needed a sweater, which I didn't have with me. Today it's chilly and rainy and I wasn't a bit too hot in a rain slicker. I skipped my usual iced coffee and enjoyed a cup of hot coffee. I think a lot of folks were savoring cups of hot coffee and just in time for coffee savoring are the five winners of the National Coffee Day giveaway. There were seventy seven entrants and five winners, picked randomly from little slips of paper. Not scientific, but it works in Buttercupland.

The grand prize winner is Betty Rubble, who will receive a box of Nescafe Memento, a coupon for a bottle of natural bliss and a coffee cup coaster. Susie, Saturday Night Fever, Kendrah and Kathy Pease will be receiving a coupon for a bottle of natural bliss. I'm having trouble linking to the posts, but I will be emailing this evening to get everyone's address. Thanks, all, for leaving your comments. I've found some great new blogs and am so appreciative of everyone visiting Buttercupland. This was the first October giveaway and there will be two more this month. I will post the next one tomorrow -- another yummy giveaway! -- and I hope there will be lots of visitors.

Please stop by and visit A Rural Journal for the weekly Sunday Best photographs. I will be adding a favorite phone of mine for this week and it's a wonderful group of bloggers.

Wishes for a very sweet week!

Giveaways are fun - - even when I didn't enter - - cuz I never have developed a love for coffee - - but it's still like being at a party and watching the guests of honor open gifts when I read about these.

Congrats to the winners. It was much cooler here today also. Hot coffee sounds good to me. Have a very restful night and a good week.

Congrats to your very lucky winner.
We had our first really cool morning here too. In this old farm house it felt like winter instead of fall.
Coffee would of been nice but I never have drank it so I had my hot chocolate. lol
Sorry I have been a bad blogging buddy. My work out here on the North Forty has just about done me in this summer and I have been neglecting my blog and friends.
Hope I can get back into the swing.
Enjoy your week.

It looked like frost here this morning. When I got up, it was 35 degrees and the furnace was running. I am sure going to miss summer.
