Time for some nice, fun stuff

Well, since I cannot do anything "strenuous", I am playing on my computer for the afternoon and I can do some catching up.

My first thing to do is post my award:

This lovely award was given to me by my online/stamping/quilting buddy, Suzanne.
She posted this to me on her blog recently because of the Christmas card project/fundraiser I did at school. It was mostly fun to do but I really appreciate this award from Suzanne!
Next thing on my "fun stuff" agenda is that I've been tagged by my friend/crafting guru/enabler Etha! Most of what I've attempted and learned in needlework and crafting over the last 10+ years has been because Etha discovered and tried it first.
So, here are seven more random facts about me:
1) I have not eaten cabbage since 1972. While on a three week trip "behind the Iron Curtain" as a student, we were fed cabbage at every meal, morning noon and night. Swore I'd never eat it again after that trip- and so far have kept that pledge for 36 years.
2) I was a high school golf coach for 10 years.
3) I have been crocheting since age 10 and despite multiple attempts to learn CANNOT knit. And I mean CANNOT!
4) I was one of the parish organists for 5 years when I was in grade school.
5) I worked in the theater program in college with Anne Hathaway's parents.
6) My son is a writer/producer/director/actor in local theater.
7) I still wear my high school class ring- have had it on since May, 1969.
Suzanne and Leslie have posted a great survey on their blogs. Check it out! I'll be posting the survery here soon- that would make TOO much info for one day, lol!
I have some beautiful new stamps from Fred B Mullet and Onyx Expressions so maybe after I put the shepherd's pie in the oven I will have time to play a little. It's 2 weeks until my next crafting-dedicated weekend but I'm not sure I can wait that long!
Check out the WildEarth drive tonight!

Glad you are having some fun today!

Glad to hear a bit of a smile in your words today. I just read your Jan 30 post and wow, now you not only made my day with the card project, but you are an inspiration to me for all you have gone through and are going through. I hope this is an easier leg experience and that maybe your insurance company will become a little more compassionate! Good luck.

How fun to read your facts!! Wow....Anne Hathaway's folks?? That's very cool!! :) Just checking...Anne is the one who played in Princess Diaries, right?? I'm glad you're resting and not doing anything too strenuous!! I hope you do get to feeling better and find out what can really help you heal!
