Catching Up

28/365 - Wednesday: I was looking out my scraproom window & saw about 6 or 7 of these big, fat birds in our tree. I think they're doves of some sort, but I've never seen orange bellies on them before? And if you look closely, you can see the beginnings of buds forming on the tree :) Does that mean that Spring is just around the corner? I sure hope so because I'm really tired of this freezing cold weather we're having!
29/365 - Thursday: I took this picture of the sun peeking out from the clouds.
30/365 - Friday: After I got off work on Friday, I drove out to Scrappy Chic to drop something off & do a little bit of shopping while I was there. I just love the font on their sign out front :)
31/365 - Saturday: I did the garage sale at Scrapbook Emporium & I'm proud to say, I did pretty dang good :) The place was packed pretty much the entire time, which I wasn't really expecting with the way the economy is. But it didn't stop scrapbookers from spending! I sold all the paper that I took as well as a lot of embellishments, some Primas & a bunch of other stuff. Gina & I had a blast, too! We met at the last garage sale that we did there & for this one, we got our tables together so we could chit-chat. Hey Gina, if you're reading this, I should have had Jim take a picture of you & I together for my blog :)
I received 2 blog awards.....the first one is from Linda....thanks girl :) I'm going to pass this award onto 5 blogs that I read all the time:

1. Lorrie
2. Darcey
3. Janet
4. Cindi
5. Aimeslee

The next award was given to me by Sarah.....thanks, Sarah :) I've received this once before, but it never hurts to get awarded twice, right? :)

The Fabulous Award Rules:
You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.
You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post.
On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them.
I think I'll pass this one on to the same people that I passed the first one on to. Enjoy your awards :)

My 5 Fabulous Addictions:
1. Scrapbooking, of course!
2. Exercising.
3. Bowling.
4. Nascar.
5. Pizza ;)
Hey, my addictions aren't too bad, right? There's a lot worse things out there to be addicted to!

Hope you have a wonderful day. Today is Super Bowl Sunday, so Jim will be glued in front of the tv & I will either be watching it with him or scrapbooking.

Benita, I'm pretty sure that pic is of a robin. We have tons of them here in NY, but I thought they flew south for the winter...
congrats on the blog award!

Denise said...

Benita, Richard and I think those are robins in your tree. Isn't that a sign of spring? I hope so!

Sue said...

they may be buds, but I have a feeling that spring is still a ways off. Sorry to burst your bubble :)

That photo of the sky is gorgeous!

Janet said...

Benita, thank you! You are too sweet. I really love how blogging connects us with ppl we would never have met otherwise! :-)

Love your pics, esp. the bird! I HOPE that means spring is soon to come!

Aimeslee said...

Thanks for the awards and tag hun, I will do it in a day or two, I promise. Just got thru doing them from Linda and Sarah, LOL. Hey, I love em all! xoxo

What a coinkydink - my new LSS around the corner from me is called Scrapbook Emporium.

Love your bird photo. It does look like a robin to me too. A dove is really a lot bigger and longer, even a morning dove. ;-)) But the orange belly is way cool! xoxo

Wonderful photos! Sounds like you had a fun weekend - so glad the sale went well. Congrats on both awards! :)

Cindi said...

Oh my gosh! I was trying to catch up on some blogs and thank you so much for the blog awards!
