Thank you!

Thank you, Andrea, for including me with your list of bloggers to receive this award! It's one I've never seen before; but more than that, I appreciate you thinking of me. Please check out Andrea's blog. I think you'll see why this is one blog I enjoy reading.

So now I have to list ten randomm things about myself. Does boring count as one?!

1. I am beginning to enjoy exercise. I am realizing as I approach 54 years old that I need to do more than sit on the couch every night after work. My quilting and stitching time have been limited because of this; but overall I'm glad I'm more active.
2. I don't like cats; sorry, they're cute but I don't want one.
3. I am a saver. Loose change, fabric, odds and ends - you name it, I probably have it here somewhere.
4. I like to bake and cook, and I have a lot of cookbooks. I still have trouble planning what to eat for supper.
5. I don't like to clean my house; however, I try to keep up with it once a week. I miss my girls living at home so I could order them to do it!
6. I am happy with the life I have.
7. I worry about inheriting Alzheimer's from my mother or Parkinson's from my dad.
8. I pray for my daughters, their husbands, and my granddaughter every day. Each person has one specific day that I concentrate on them individually. Since Natalie was born, I have started to double up. I don't mind that.
9. Sometimes I wonder why God allows certain things to happen, but I still trust that He knows what's best.
10. I wish I could accomplish more things each day.

Phew, what list! Nothing like airing dirty laundry for the world to see!

Now I would like to pass this award onto these sweet bloggers:

Melanie at Covered Porches
Thelma at Cupcakes 'n Daisies
Rebecca at Rebecca's Teahouse
Dawn at Linen Closet Quilts
Mickey at Life As I See It
Chez at Fat Johnny's Front Porch
Tina at Cinnamon Whirls
Elizabeth at French Village Life
Lea at Simple Pleasures
Susan at Hanging on by a Needle and Thread
Ann at Ann's Quilting Journey

Please check out these blogs; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Again, thank you Andrea!

I knew there was a reason that you made us clean! And why I always had to do the bathroom.

I'm at the library and there have been four little kids who have wanted to check out the DVD of Max and Ruby. Strangely...or not so strangely...none of their mothers have let them borrow it. :)

How lovely of you to think of me. I'm actually taking a step back from doing tags at the moment, but may get round to it later.

I just ran across this post, am i slow or what!

Thanks so much for including me in your list! I am honored and amazed. This whole blogging thing is new to me.

I liked #6 on your list the best. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could be happy with the life they have.
