Guess what...I did it:) I passed my Algebra class!! I am now free for a little bit to get caught up on some major quilting. I also need to get all my swaps done so they won't be looming over my head and need to make some trips to some fun quilt stores around the area...Just need to find them... Thank you for all your support to everyone and now to show you what I was awarded yesterday from Messy Karen...

I did it! I hope you girls are ok with this. Some people don't enjoy getting tagged. I hope you enjoy it and please take it as a compliment


Libby tagged me to share 6 random things about myself. So here goes:

1) I love chocolate...any kind fixed any way. Never enough chocolate and if I could make that my main meal I would. It is the only way I get milk. I inherited that from my dad. He loves chocolate cake in a bowl with milk preferably whole milk he is so funny. Which leads me to #2

2) I am so lucky to have my Dad! He is the best Dad anyone could ask for. I tell my dad everything and he is my biggest supporter in life. He sometimes has a had time understanding from a girls view but I love my dad with all of my heart. He is so good about telling me every time we talk how much he loves me and how proud he is of me. I can't say enough about him. I Love you DAD!!! I have to edit this...(I just got a message from my dad---his words of encouragement for today is..."When you can't sleep--don't count sheep---talk to the Shepard"

3) After my husband was killed I learned to play in the dirt and enjoy it. I love to plant flowers now and love to plant and clean up in the fall to get the ground ready for next spring. Oh how I miss those times.

4) I am a fly by the seat of my pants...I love to do things with out planning ok sometimes it creates major havoc in my life but I do pretty good with that and it is probably the reason God decided I needed to have 3 boys before he gave me my 1 girl. It prepared me to have 3 boys a day short of 2 years and not even twins. Wow how I did it now is amazing...I think I shall pat myself on the back for this...:)

5) I love to meet people. My kids always laugh at me because I am always finding someone to talk to where ever I go. They say "Mom do you even know that person?" I say no but I do now and am glad I got to meet them:)

6) I am not very creative...I know with my love for quilting I should be but I depend on patterns and my friends to help me out. Again I love my friends:)

I did it:)...

How fun to learn more about you Polly! I have a sister named Polly. I don't know if I ever mentioned that. She lost her husband when she was 26. She's remarried now and older than me but a sweetie just like you. Enjoy your dad. I miss mine everyday. You are a winner! Congrats on the Algebra class.

Kerri said...

Thanks for the award. You deserve it as well. You are a great support.
Good luck with your further studies. I keep an eye out on your progress.

Congrats on passing algebra. I knew you could do it. Sorry I didn't reply to your e-mail yesterday my e-mail account was messed up it sent your email to a program in my computer so I could see you email but couldn't reply. I'll work on the tag today. I don't know if mom will be able to. She really doesn't know her way around the computer. She is still unsure about posting without me there.

Libby said...
