DeLurking Day Update and Other Silly Stuff

Delurking Day Update:

On January 14th it was Delurking day and I decided that I was going to stop using the google reader and actually come and see everyone that I follow.  I put a BlogRoll on my side bar and I check it everyday.

Since January 14th, I have increased my followers from 3 to 23.  That's 20 more people who think I am a cool read!  YAY!  Also the number of comments on my posts has increased.  I LOVE comments!  You guys are SO Supportive.  HUGS all around!

I have had the Privilege of receving not one but TWO awards this week!  Corrie over at Just Because My Pickle Talks, Doesn't Make Me an Idiot gave me the Sunshine Award.  She is So Sweet!  And she also is raising an Aspergers Son.  Thank you!

Also, Alice In Wonderland gave me the Kreative Blogger award this week!  I love Alice's site because she always has something lovely posted there.  Usually its a poem or a story she created herself.  Right now she is teaching us about various myths and legends.  Alice has a sister site called Alice Through the Lens where she is posting wonderful pictures each day.  I LOVE the churches that she has posted.  Thank you for the award!

With the awards come rules. First I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself and then I am to share the awards.  Ok, here goes!

1.  I am ready to put myself back out in the dating pool.  Its' only taken me 3 years to heal.
2.  I LOVE chocolate.
3.  I used to play the flute and recently picked it back up again.
4.  I love to ride bikes in the warm weather.
5.  I wish I could be more adventurous in my life.
6.  I hate that I have to work on Fridays.
7.  I would love to ride a motorcycle.  Never been on one!

Ok.  Now to share this with people. Please know that it is VERY hard for me choose between you all and I would love to give it to all of you.  HUGS all around!

There you have it.  WOW, that was harder than I though it would be.  You guys pick the award you want and display it proudly!

On to the Silly Stuff!
Oops!  I saw this out my front window on Wednesday:

Yes, the Tug and Barge is STUCK on the mud flats.
The Tug came around the bend and didn't compensate quickly enough for the wind and it blew him aground.  Oops!  At least the tide had just turned so he didn't have to wait long to get enough water to sail away.  When he was free, he steered WAY far AWAY from the shore.  LOL

Kitters checking out the Tug's progress

Want to play a game of Wii, Mom?

Happy Weekend my friends!

  7. Only three years? It's been five for me. I tried to date every now and then but damn if the men out there aren't really clingy, and they have bad teeth.

    Congrats on the awards!

  8. Wow! Thank You so much for the award! It was just what I needed to brighten up my day!
    To be totally honest, I was getting a bit down-hearted at all the work that I was putting into my blogs and seemed to be stuck in a rut....but Monday will be my 200th post! So, I'm looking forward to that!
    Can I please have the orange flower?
    I'll just pinch it anyway!
    Big Hugs!

  9. I am like your cat wanna play Wii? We played all morning because it was a cloudy rainy day this morning so all we did was laundry and play games like Snow Ball Fight, and Hoola Hoop, and about 10 other on that same screen. I did very good at some and horrible at others. But we had fun and laughed and even got one chore done besides the laundry. We hung up the big heavy courtain for the spare bedroom and we had to take turns doing that because it is so heavy and lifting your right arm up there for so long just takes a toll on your arm muscles. Plus it was after we played Wii. We didn't do Yoga this morning but we will do it after our nap today because today is the last day we can take a nap. We leave on March 20th and don't want to be in a habit of taking a nap so we will spend the nesxt month boxing what we will and won't take. Less is better so we are not taking very much. Talk to you soon.Sounds like you are doing ok and that is good. Love ya, Mom
