Yes, this is my life right now and I know I’m not alone, we are having ANOTHER snowstorm! I had plans to go to GW today to take bags that I have cleaned out of my bedroom closet and of course stalk/look around GW too but instead I’m contemplating on painting my hutch. I have the paint and I even bought my first Purdy brush, you would think I’d have it done by now and all tweaked but I think I’m a victim of cabin fever, just no gumption to do anything! Can you see the snow coming down?
I mean come on!!! I’ve had enough, as I type this it is coming down even worse!
This is a church across from us we are the only two that live up this way, the Steeler flag Mr. K stuck there, just can’t get on a tall ladder to hang it by our front door, and yes that is still a Christmas garland wrapped around the pole LOL, just has been to cold or to much snow to take it down.
Now this has made me happy, I received the Stylish Blogger Award, hurray for me!!! It sure has made me feel wanted, in fact when I read Ellen’s comment I couldn’t believe it and it put a big smile on my face, then to read Diane’s, well I felt truly honored! Going from one blog to another and from one style to another has not been a easy, I mean I was in my comfort zone with my other blog…but that’s what change is all about, getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new, it just has taken me a little while to post this wonderful award… blame the weather:)
So thank you Ellen from Abounding Life stop by Ellen’s blog, she is a warm, and wonderful lady who loves her home and thank you Ellen for always taking the time to leave your sweet comments… I do appreciate it so much!
Thanks also to Diana from Nana Diana Takes a Break, love her humor and also her love of life…and you can also tell that she loves her grandchildren…love that! Thanks also Diana for stopping by, you both have been friends right from the start!
Now I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself:
1.I’ll be 60 in April and Mr. K’s birthday is the day after mine so he is exactly 1 year and a day older than me. To celebrate we are leaving for Jamaica, April 5th, with my BFF and her husband!
2.I love to read, I read Gone With the Wind when I was about 11 or 12 and when I was little would beg to be able to order books from grade school, I forget the name but you would order them and it was a big day when they came in.
3.I will be married 5 years this May 26th after a 25 year marriage went sour…like a lemon:) I was single though after the divorce for about 10 years and I had a great time but found out one thing…you can be in a crowed room and be lonely.
4.I have four children Michele, Nick, Michael and Chris, my daughter is 41, yah, do the math:)
5.I love clothes, boots, shoes and handbags. I remember my manager at Kaufmann’s always saying they were not purses but handbags and that has always stuck with me!
6.I love to workout and finally got back to it, I’m doing the kettlebell and the treadmill, got to fix what’s going down ladies!
7.My very best friend is my Father in Heaven, although I don’t say it too much on my blog but do mention it in my comments when needed, He is awesome! He got me thur the bad time of my 1st marriage and at that time I took His strong right hand and walked with him and I’ve never let go!
Now to list 7 bloggers, this is hard for me because I feel everyone deserves one and if you don’t want it that’s fine with me no feelings hurt here, everyone has different views on awards here in blogland. Myself I was honored and it’s a great way to get to know the blogger a little better.
1.Hilary…Sweet as June
2.Susan…Between Naps on the Porch
4.Ashley…Forty Year Old Ranch
5.Sarah…Cozy Cottage Cute
7.Amanda…The Hand Me Down House
You are all special to me I’ve learned so much from each and everyone of you from book wreaths(which BTW didn’t turn out to well but at least I attempted it)coffee filter wreaths and that one did succeed after days of trying.LOL What I’m trying to say is without blogging I would have NEVER tried to do these things but with all of you out there willing to share your ideas and beautiful photos I can at least attempt to try♥
Have a great day and hope your not getting the bad word lately… snow!
