I just love reading blog awards, where you have to list things that you love, hate, do, don't do and the like. I got this fun Tag you're it from Heart's Desire Beads, Debra, a lovely lady who is about as active as a person can be...for example, she home schools her kids! That is a major full time job but she manages to run a thriving BEAUTIFUL wrapped wire with gems jewelry business.
Just for a treat jump over and check out her talents, her stuff is just gorgeous. http://heartsdesirebeads.silkfair.com/ I would be jealous but I like her too much! Well without too much further ado, here we go:
YYYYY Tag....I'm It!
Eight things I'm looking forward to:
1.) The painting to be finished in my kitchen.
2.) The cabinet doors to be hung in my kitchen.
3.) Fourth of July.
4.) The first egg from our chickens.
5.) The fruits from my garden, hopefully peas soon.
6.) Hitting the thrift store today, that will mean that I have put the last coat of paint on my kitchen cabinets.
7.) Noon and a diet Dr. Pepper, the flavor of the week.
8.) Receiving my new antique button broaches. (Not pictured)
Eight things I did yesterday

2.) Primed cabinet doors, stained and varnished them.
3.) Made fun fun fun soap labels for soap I'm listing today.
4.) Made the Curves scene.
5.) Watched my oldest grandson on his new big boy bike (it still has training wheels).
6.) Watched my youngest grandson on his hand me down starter bike (outgrown from #1 grandson).
7.) Watered my much loved garden.
8.) Watched my backyard birds. They are such happy creatures this year.
Eight things I wish I could do:
1.) Lose the compulsion to think 'I can just do it myself'(ref. question 1 and 2 above.)
2.) Just hire somebody to do the kitchen face lift for me. (ref. question 1 and 2 above.)

4.) Create something that would sell in multiples, generate income.
5.) Win the lottery and have money to start businesses to employ disabled people.
6.) Be extremely wise.
7.) Forgive quickly, lose the anger. What a waste of time not to forgive.
8.) Have more time. Honestly, what's wrong with a 36 hour day?
Eight Things or Shows I Have Watched:
1.) The HGTV network *LOL* (ref. questions 1 and 2 above.)
2.) Martha Stewart Show *LOL* (ref. questions 1 and 2 above.)
7.) My chickens frantically scramble for worms. So comical.
8.) Just recently watched over 130 card makers participate in the blog hop for Cards For Heroes. So awesome. http://cardsforheroes.org/send-handmade-cards/
Eight of My Favorite Blogs: Impossible to chose, I love blogs. These are not in the order of their importance, nor are they my absolute favorites. Just a few I follow.
1.) http://afancifultwist.typepad.com/ I visit here frequently. lovely whimsical lighthearted and youthful, sort of naively innocent. Fun for me.
2.)http://mytwocents.wordpress.com/2009/05/27/my-two-cents-on-mark-driscoll/ smart, religious. stuff I like.
Interesting with links out
a breath of fresh air every time I visit.
who doesn't love Mars Hill Church. So hip trendy and relevant. I wish I could upgrade my computer to get their stuff, we (me and my computer) are dinosaurs.
so funny, so smart, so clever.
this is randomly last on this list but I LOVE THIS BLOG.
So hard to pick my favorite links, I am suited for the Internet and the Internet is suited for me, it is a garden of information, and I spend as much time as I can spare gathering those lovely little wildflowers for a mason jar on my table. Thanks again to Debra, who by the way has a lovey blogspot of her own, http://heartsdesirebeads.blogspot.com/, a treat every time I drop by!
And many thanks to Debra @heartsdesirebeads.blogspot.com for the beautiful pictures in this article.
