A Little Of This And Alot Of That

Kyle got off to work and had a wonderful day. I want to thank everyone for your prayers! He is doing very well. Sweet Hubby on the other hand was home today. Not the usual, but things went smoothly. I did my deep clean of the powder bath and worked in my sewing room after finishing my normal daily chores. I only had 1 load of laundry, which was towels, so that was easy. TJ took his coat to his mom and said "Go to Grandma's house please." How can I resist?? He came for a couple of hours and really just wanted to play with Charlotte and Zach. They were done with school, so they spent the first half of his time here with him and then he managed to share himself with me and PawPaw. He loved this math manipulative.

Niki tagged me for the 7 random things meme. I have done this a couple of times and thought I could not come up with anything else, but with my mom and sister's help here goes:

1. I met Sweet Hubby the first day of high school. We were 13 & 14. We never dated until we graduated 4 years later, though he was my first kiss the year we met....(that doesn't sound good does it?)
2. All my uncles call me Bunny and have since I was 2.
3. I can't swim and am afraid of water.
4. I collect children's book with a quilt related theme.
5. A year and a half ago, I introduced my friend (of 28 years) and my cousin to each other. They fell in love and are living together. I can't talk her into getting married.
6. Several years ago, I drove a car 10 miles with the horn honking every two seconds. I had triggered the alarm and did not know how to turn it off. Very embarrassing.
7. I have never broke a bone or had surgery. (My little toe may have been broken last year??)

I am to tag 7 others. I want to tag new-to-me blogs so I tag Idaho Quilter, Steph, Coleen, Kelley, Monique, Tammy, and even though she is not new to me, she has the BEST sense of humor and I am in the mood for a laugh...Corin (please do it even if you already did, and make me laugh!!!)

I also want to thank MarilynR and Gudrun for the sweet "You Make My Day" award. I love both of your blogs. You are truly creative and I get inspired every time I visit either of you. I pass it on to the blogs I just tagged for the 7 Random Things Meme, along with Katie. Katie really made my day this past weekend! Thank you!

Also, Donetta gave me this award and I want to thank you! I am so honored to even "know" Donetta. Here is what the originator of the award said:
"So here's to all the blogs that you've discovered that you can't possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog".
From Xandra: creator, The Daily Dose Award
I have too may blogs that I feel this way about, and it is hard to pick just a few, but again I think this needs to be passed on. I am sure the blogs I name will pass it on to the others I love so much...I will do one in each category of blog I read:

Homemaking/Cooking: Niki's Rural Writings (My kindred spirit...or who I aspire to)
Quilting: Linda's All Stitched Up (she is the first quilting blog I read, even before I had my own blog!)
Parenting: Ann's Tis The Gift To Be Simple (gotta love those boys and the 1 ballerina! Ann is a really good mom)
Country Life: Joni's My Piece of Heaven (She named cows after my kids...that is love!)
Inspirational: Cheryl...better known as CoppersWife (She already got this a bunch of times but she is a HUGE inspiration to me personally and I drink my coffee every morning to her blog post.)
Whew! That was a lot of linking!!!! more thing, I won the prize on Debi's 100th (112th) post drawing!! You can see what I won here. I have never had a jelly roll before. What do you think the odds are I will unroll it??? Thank you so much Debi. It was a very GENEROUS prize!! I look forward to another 112 posts from you!!
Well I think that is enough for one post! Thanks for being patient while I went all over the place!

I would love to try my hand at the block of the month but I can't seem to get the pattern to download. Do you click on the pattern or do you have to sign up first? Thought you could help me. Thanks.

Thanks for thinking of me for the kind award, Bren.
