Just a quick hello and thanks for visiting my blog.

Spot said... [Reply to comment]

Six days?! Hahaha. That cracked me up. I have a few of the same needs! Like a new couch. Why is furniture always so far down on the list??

And hubby and I are going to Maine in October!! I'm so excited. I'm going to take a pic of Stephen's house. LOL. Have bail money ready...they'll probably arrest me as a stalker!

This one; Things I love about winter: It's not over 100 degrees outside” That’s why I love winter. LOL! I can see why it took you 6 days to complete this, wow! Great Blog!

Angelia Sims said... [Reply to comment]

I can believe it took 6 days! WOW! That's a lot of cool stuff. :-) I was reading through wondering how you came up all these great answers!

And you know what? You are a Survivor fan too! Yahoo! I've watched EVERY single season and episode. This season has really got me on edge! I don't even know who to root for.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Ocean Girl...Thanks. Lessons from the past was hard.


Rabbit...I just had to rack my brain on segment at a time.

Grace...Glad you enjoyed it!

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Lucy...No, thank you!

Spot...I didn't work on it continuously, just a little at a time.
Cause the couch I want cost $400, that I don't have.
Oh, your going to Bangor! I soo want to go and visit my kin. Hope you have a good time, but don't get arrested..I'm broke! LOL!

Gerardine...LOL! Can't wait for spring! Thanks.

Angelia...Thanks! I worked very hard! LOL! Well I'm not that deticated to survivior. We are watching it this season, because of Rupurt.
Unfortunetely if he gets voted off because of his broken toe, hubby will most likely get mad and stop watching! LOL! We also like Tom!

Loved your last comment! And especially appreciate the mercy granted along with it. And guess what...I sat on my butt watching The Devil Wears Prada, too. Suffered from tingly butt syndrome (and not in a good way.) =)

Mindy...I just couldn't bring myself to make someone else do it. LM(Tingly)AO!!
