Random Friday Early

Lots going on so I am going to post this a day early, plus I'm getting my old computer replaced on Friday so the computer guy will be here switching things over. I hope I don't have to learn anything new....sigh...... My second vacation post is up, just go one back from here. I know I've got this week all mixed up but sometimes that's just the way it is around here. Another sigh.......

Anywho, like I said lots going on so I had better get at it. First off did you all get the invitation to Pea's Halloween party? If not, don't be sad cause I'm extending the invitation! Pea's parties are always fun so I'm anxious to see what she's got planned for this one! Be sure to wear a costume!

Tammy over at Lattes and Lollypops is having a Home School Open House this week! Now whether you home school or not go on over and have a look at what she does with her two 'students'! They not only learn they have fun!

Speaking of Pea, she graciously passed along several awards to all of her regular readers! Yippee! Awards are Fun! Thanks Miss Pea!

Mary over at Mary's Writing Nook has a wonderful project going on right now. She is getting lots of people to send Christmas cards to a lady soldier that is deployed right now. This is a great opportunity to give back to one of our own that I'm sure could use a little cheering up at times! Thank you Mary for doing this! Drop on over to her blog and see all the details! Hey this might be nice for all the Home Schoolers to participate in!

I won, I won!! I entered all 40 of the quilting give away blogs a few weeks ago and hadn't heard anything so figured I didn't win anything. (pouting as I type) but today there was a package on my front porch when I got home!!!!! I won
Needled Mom's pillow give away and it is adorable!! It's a Halloween pillow that is beautifully made, I LOVE it!! So don't ever think that you never will win a Give Away! Thank you NM!!!

My little gal pals Izzy and Emmy have given me an award! These are two of the cutest little gals out there in Bloggsville and you really should hop over and say howdy! Their blog just keeps getting better and better! Thank you so much for the award, I love it! Hugs to you both!

This has been the week for nice surprises! This just goes to show that it pays to whine and pout when you want something..........Miss Pea had a Halloween contest recently and I was whining that I wanted the pair of socks that was in one of the prizes. Well, I didn't win the contest but she sent me some socks!! Yippee, I'm all ready for Halloween! Thank you Miss Pea, you are a sweetheart! I promise I won't whine and pout again.........too soon!

I will finish my last Florida vacation post soon. As I was going through some more of the pictures that we took I couldn't help but to feel so blessed to be able to go on a trip with my family and have such special times with my two little grand kids! I know that they live just five minutes away anyhow but to have them right with us 24-7 is just so special and I am so thankful for those times. So many of my friends grand kids are spread out all over the US and they only get to see them once or twice a year. To be able to see mine whenever I want is truly a blessing that I am forever thankful for!

Mom continues to improve each day at rehab. I watched her do some of her physical therapy sessions today and she is really doing well at them. She is so anxious to come home and we are anxious to get her back here. Hopefully it will be this weekend or the first of next week but we will have to wait and see. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as it is so hard for her to be away from Dad and home. We are there every day but when night time comes and she has to stay there it's very hard on her. We are fortunate that the Rehab Facility is only about a ten minute drive away so we can go often and we are a big family so she has lots of company.

Have a fun Halloween everyone and enjoy all the little trick or treaters that come to your door!

How lucky for you to get that adorable pillow! I only signed up for that one. Whining pays off sometimes, eh??

Good luck with your new computer - it's always a challenge to set everything up as it was before - I always was glad to get a new one at work, then it took me a whole day to get it back where I wanted it to be.

We have Light in the Night at church, with a chili contest, so we don't give away much candy at home.

Needled Mom said...

Glad that you enjoyed my candy corn pillow. At least there were no calories included!!!!!

I had to replace my computer a couple of weeks ago and it is so nice to work on it. Hope you have the same experience.

LOVE the socks. I think I need a pair like that! Too cute.

Glad your mom will be able to come home soon. I know how thrilled everyone will be. Those hospitals are not a fun place to be.

Happy Halloween.

I just LOVE the socks. I am a great admirer of fun socks. I have a cold and haven't done much of anything this week. I'm off to get my flu shot now.
