I got an award!


I received this award from Izdiher.  Thank you!  With this award, I need to tell you all 7 things about myself.  Here goes...

1.  I love quilting, hardanger, and other crafts.  I like the process; the feeling that I am beautifying my home and MAKING it my home; giving comfort to my kids in quilts and making something from my heart to my hands for my friends.  I don't make and give a lot as it takes me such a long time to complete anything!

2.  I love cooking for those that appreciate it.  Having said that, today I made a Tuna Log and forgot to take a picture for the Farewell at Hardanger for Sylvie and Ali cooked dinner.  I like that too!  That someone else cooked and cleaned!

3.  I like crappy food.  Like what?  Like TV dinners that takes forever to chew; airplane food, popcorn at the cinema, cafeteria food (haven't seen this in the Middle East though).  My husband doesn't get it.  Even the kids don't!  I just tell them, 'look away and don't judge!!' hahahaha!

4.  I miss my Mom like crazy.

5.  I want to leave the Middle East sometimes.  I miss America.  I need to travel somewhere.

6.  I like to meet people and talk to them.  It is very hard to do that here.  I have been enjoying hooking up with my sewing friends again.  They feed a small part of my soul!

7.  I love working on the computer.  I am now officially setting up a blog for the Muscat Quilt Guild.  Approved yesterday, Saturday, September 18th.

I know that I only need 7 things but want to add one more...

8.  I have been losing weight.  Not enough.  But losing.  Wish me luck.  I need it.  To lose and your wishes!  Health people!!  Health!

Thanks for stopping by!  Love it!

bad food is a memory thing for me. Spam... i know its gross but my mouth waters over a spam and cheese omelet. my dad used to make them on sunday mornings after church. Congratulations on losing weight. I have been losing some too slowly and even though no one else has really noticed that much, i can tell the difference!

Congratulations on your award. :)
I am with you, I love TV dinners, but rarely indulge! I don't fly, so I don't know airplane food. I love Kentucky Fried Chicken too, and most people hate it. Come to the US and specifically to Arizona, I'll introduce you to all kinds of crappy food. hehehehe

Tamara: I have never had Spam. I remember kids used to bring Spam sandwiches to school. I think they sell it here. I'll check the next time. Maybe I will buy a can and just watch it until it expires!!?? Congrats on your weight loss too. For some people, it is a life long struggle (moi!).

BSQ: Thank you! Thank you for stopping by and commenting too!

Sandra: Thank you also so much for stopping by and commenting! Thanks for the encouragement!

Anne: HAHAHAHAHAHA You made me laugh so hard! Great, great way to start the day! Thank you!! Hmmm....I have a cousin in AZ too!
