clean sweep(stakes) April 7-13

This week’s giveaway is for the book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy, by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

So how do you enter to win this book? Make a suggestion in a comment!
Don’t have a suggestion? Just leave any comment and you’ll be entered to win!
Don’t want this week’s book(s) but still have a suggestion? Add “no thanks” to your comment.

My request today? Suggest a name for our “new” boat!

Since I have two copies of this week’s book, I’m actually going to expand this drawing a little bit – everyone can ENTER TWICE.

If you want to make sure you get in the drawing for the book, just enter ANY comment now. I will award Simple Abundance to a random winner.

If you want to think about a boat name and leave your comment later, do that too. That way, you won’t miss the drawing if you forget to come back before Sunday night. If we actually pick YOUR suggestion, you will win both Simple Abundance AND the audio tape edition of Something More: Excavating Your Authentic Self, also by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

The Details: We bought a boat on Saturday! We used to own a boat (pre-kiddos) and since the kids are older now, we think it’s time we introduced them to our love of saltwater fishing. We’ve actually wanted to buy another boat for while now, but we waited until we could afford it and we’re so glad we did. It wouldn’t be very relaxing to go out for a little stress relief on a boat that owns US, instead of the other way around.

We named our first boat “The Briar Patch.” For this boat, we’re leaning toward the name “The Briar Patch II,” but we want to consider other options first. FirstHusband says a 22 foot boat is too small to have a name, but that mindset has been overruled by the rest of the family. He also has the idea that we may even head on out on a Friday night and spend the night on the boat so we will wake up on Saturday morning and not face the hour long drive to the coast. hmmm. we’ll see. (It does have a porta potty.)

Only the comments on THIS post will be eligible to win.
If your comment “signature” doesn’t link to any contact info:
please include your email in the comment or check back to see if you won!

The books I give away here are usually “treasures” in “very good ” to “like new” condition.
I’m trying to give away a book a week, so I can only afford to ship within the U.S. So sorry!
Check out the list of previous winners and the books they won!

I’ll close comments Sunday evening, April 13th and use a random number generator to pick a winner!

  1. what about “aye matey” (HA!) or “school of life” or “will fish with kids” or “luv2fish”

    I can NOT believe I am the ONLY one commenting on this…come on EVERYONE…have some fun!!!

  2. Well, I can’t believe you aren’t naming it The Pragmatic Comfort!

    Or. . . E-fish-ent Family Times.

    Depending on what happens with the truck, you may be naming the boat “Sold”! 🙂

  3. That book sounds like a very interesting read. About the boat… For my canoe I named it after my Mom. That is a very traditional way of naming a boat, to name it after a honored female in your life. Other than that I am having a brain freeze. I hope you have a lot of fun in your boat though!

  4. This sounds like a very interesting book.
    How about “Ladyluck” for the name of your boat.

  5. I like the name “Bikini Bottom” for a boat, but in this case maybe you should name it “Stranded” since it really is stranded at the dry dock now that the truck is unusable.
