You Light Up My Life

My long time blogging friend, DebR, has given me a “You Make My Day Award.”

Here’s what the guidelines for this award say: Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about Blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!

So, let me see. Who makes my day on a regular basis.

DebR, Terry, Judy, Dee, Pamdora, my daughter Lisa, Mrs. Mel, Lizzie B, Kristin, Karoda

Thank you for lighting up my life on a regular basis! I could give a second set of ten awards, so please, if I didn’t choose you, I just have too many favorite bloggers.

I mentioned some of the goodies that Kristin brought last week when she was here visiting. She also brought fiber post cards for Lili, Steph and I. Steph chose one and took it home with here. Lisa and I get to select one of these. I am posting pictures here so that Lisa can chose the one she wants. Yeah, more Kristin art.


After church today, we got a nice long sun break so we walked Maggie up to Westmoreland to Haggis McBaggis, which is basically a children’s clothing and shoe store, but they sell cool adult shoes — Keen’s & Merrill’s among others. They were having a 20% off sale. I needed new walking shoes. I love Keen’s. They wear really well and come in cool materials and colors. Here are my new shoes.


I learned something today. A size 6 children’s shoe is the same as a size 7.5 women’s shoe and they are way cheaper. With my discount, these cost me $39!

Tonight, I am sewing the sleeve on the Good to Be Green piece so that I can send it to Larkin for photography for a CD of the show. Then, I am determined to make a new piece this week.

    Thanks for the award! There is a cash prize that goes with it, right? Har, har. Seriously, thank you. I’m honored to be on your list.

    Good deal on the shoes–$39! I have the same ones in a different color as you know and they were a whole lot more expensive than that. They have been great for walking. Mine are currently globbed with mud from my winter walks. I hope they will clean up OK. They still look like giant toddler shoes to me, but so comfortable.

    Great shoes! Wish my feet were that small. That type of shoes looks like clodhoppers on me but I wear them anyway. That’s me–the glamor queen. Have a great day.
