6 Wierd Things and a freebie

Another bloger challenged us to list 6 wierd things about ourselves so here goes:
1. I like gravy on coleslaw
2. Toilet paper must feed from the top of the roll not the bottom
3. I hate looking at the letter a like this a
4. In the summer I will wear two different coloured crocks with different matching colour earings
5. I taught all 9 of my grandchildren to say I love my grandma as soon as they could talk
6. I am a terrible housekeeper but my clothes are put away neatly and rotated with 2 tops for every skirt and pants in order in the closet.

Back to Normal?

My brother-in-laws funeral was today and we had 14 out of 17 of our family here. They came last night (Tuesday) for the wake. It is back to work and hopefully back to normal now but I will be checking on my sister to make sure she is doing OK. Even though ot was a sad occasion it was nice to see relatives from out of town. Our family is close and it is times like this that we appreciate them the most. The people of our small town have been wonderfully supportive as well.

My Brother-in-law Al

My brother in law was diagnosed with liver cancer just after Christmas. Today he has been taken to the hospital and at the last report at 8:15 pm they don't think he will make it through the night. We have arranged for his son to fly home from out west but he won't get here till midnight tomorrow. We will be at my husbands Uncle's funeral tomorrow but will be home around supper time. My sister has a good friend and her younger ninteen year old son with here at the hospital. It is a tough time for all of us.

Rainy Foggy Day

Sad news

We just heard that DH's Uncle (his Mom's brother) died today he would have turned 87 a week today. I guess we will be going to a funeral on Friday. On a happier note the drive to work was OK the freezing rain did not hit but stayed further north. My son S sent us pictures of his new home and I am looking forward to seeing it in a couple of weeks. DD and DGD are coming for the weekend and DGD is staying and driving back on her own on Thursday. I am looking forward to shopping and having a pajama day. I finished the Pocket Blessings for RAK's and did a cute LO of CW's kids kissing frogs.

Pajama Day Again

Yet another day on the computer. I am all caught up with the newspapers and got a start on the March prize, theme is the Heather fields of Scotland. Wish I had some photos from Scotland. The colours are very dark and drab. Also worked on the February Members RAK, did lots of downloading too. Backing up the computer is my next goal. Weather tomorrow is not looking good and we have to drive me to work in the morning. Calling for freezing rain ug. Getting all set to watch Medium.

Another Day

Again I spent most of the day at my computer. I did another layout for Paul and worked on my contibution for the March Mega Kit at RAKS. I have DH's scaner and I have been playing with that and scaning things to use as backgound papers for kits I would like to do. It was a pajama day and I loved it. Hope to have another freebie soon.

Another day is almost over and I spent most of it at my computer as usual. Tonight we are going to friends to play Ramoli. I have my jar of pennies ready. I am working on sorting, scaning and organizieing a 10 inch high pile of pictures of Paul from 1993 to 2004. It is hard to decide on which year to put some of them in. When his Mom and sister come next weekend maybe they can help. Must go and see how many pennies I can loose tonight!
