I've Been Tagged

Oh,me,oh,my, my friend Janet, over at Graceful Rose has tagged me. Now I have to tell 10 interesting things about myself. Here goes....

1. I get up every morning and "Thank God" for the talent he has given me.

2. I love pink... like you didn't already know that.

3. Painting is my passion. I have painted as long as I can remember.

4. My hubby is the love of my life and no matter what junk I drag home he never complains.

4. I have one gorgous daughter. I dread the day I become an empty nester.

5. I love to garden and pink roses are my favorite... mother nature has not been as kind this yr. and the heat is killing us all.

6.I love all things Vintage and Victorian..especially china, linens,tea cups and tea pots.

7.I love to read. Hubby says I will read the side of a cereal box when there's nothing else around the house.

8.I hate the heat. I can't wait for winter.

9. Hunting for new treasures to paint on is another of my passions.

10.I would love to live in the country where I could have a huge garden and all the animals I wanted.

Thank goodness we only have to come up with 10 things,LOL.

In Rememberance of Granddaddy - You are missed.

Remember the movie Parenthood with Steve Martin ? The grandmother said " life is like a roller coaster ... it has it's ups and downs. It goes round and round, up and down " or something to that effect. That's how it's been at my house for the last few weeks. Most of you know that I have taken care of my bedridden FIL for the last 4 + yrs. Sadly for us on July 18,2009 he left this earth to be with God and Grandmother. Happily for him he is no longer in pain or suffering. He is greatly missed by all. The house isn't the same. Thank you to all that have kept us in your prayers.
