The Reports Of My death Are Greatly Exaggerated

I am so sorry that I have caused ya'll to worry. I just have not had anything to say so I have sort of stayed away from the blog. I even stayed away from bloglines....just now getting around to catching up with you all.

Christmas was wonderful! Spent the week at my parent's and basically slept, shopped and sewed. Then I came home and went back to work. I have fought the feeling of being trapped in a great big ole paper bag. Maybe it is just a let down from the holidays being over. Bear with me okay?

Things that are running around in my head.....

1. Why does Otis in The Barnyard have udders? I could not concentrate on the rest of the danged movie for wondering about that.

2. Little Miss Sunshine GREAT movie! Horrible language!! Loved it cause I have a beauty contestant heart but not a beauty contestant face.

3. Won't be long before is going to be a great year for it.

4. How is this year going to be better? I do not know about the rest of you but I think 2006 had some very sucky moments.

5. Wonder what the postman will bring today. The mail...she has been very good to me lately. Pics later.

6. I am still not going to Burger King until they get rid of that horrid ~shudders~ king. I do not care how good their onion rings with that wonderful sauce is!

7. Just what am I going to sew next?

8. Anyone ready for a swap yet?

I really am thankful even though I may not act like it....

1. Clean panties

2. My own washer and dryer

3. Sonic diet cokes with cherry

4. New tennis shoes

5. My sewing machine

6. The Christmas stuff being put up...finally!

7. Electric blankets

8. Cold weather

9. Fiberglass cows

10. Business cards (did ya'll know that I collect those?)

11. Cell phones

12. Rainmaker's burritos

13. De-icer

14. Sparkling cider

15. having plenty.

Okay....your turn....I bet you can do better than me this time!


  1. Happy New Year, Mindy! Hope it will be a great one for you.

    Looking forward to pantypalooza!

  2. I'm so glad you're back ... when bloglines left you blank for so long I kept checking in to make sure. I was going on "no news is good news."

    Do we post our thankful list on our own blogs or here in comments? I think I should do this ... I need to remind myself of the good things I have.

  3. Hi QG...thank you!

    Hello aBhantiarna Solas! Post it here or on your blog. I am trying to get back in the habit of doing a thankfulness list weekly. We tend to forget the little things that really bring a whole lot to our lives.

    My word verification....pbblve. For reals!

  4. Yay!! You're back!!

    do you have my email address?? if you send me your snail mail address, I'll send you a business card from way up North!

  5. YEA!! Sue I am sending you an email right now!

  6. Sweetheart ... thank you for the lovely lovely manger .. and the fish .. and the pin cushion. That especially is beautiful. The manger is up - but will be put to bed this weekend - and I'm still decidingwhere to put the fish. In my office somewhere I think - since I spend most time here.

    proper post soon dear friend - just to keep you and thepostie happy.

    2006 had some sucky moments indeed - but I'm doing better and in faith claiming 2007 as a year of restoration.

    PS eija and I are starting a manageable reading of psalms, Isaiah and Nehemiah if you are interested ... more details over at the train in the near future.

  7. I missed the last swap, so I'd love one!! But what to swap? Old shoes? Pets? Used chewing gum? I don't know, so many choices!!

    Thankful things:
    My wonderful husband
    My amazing son
    A roof over my head (and in this wind I hope it lasts)
    Roses blooming in January
    Last night's rain
    Friends, friends, and more friends
    Starbucks gift cards
    A job
    Hot chocolate, and whipped cream
    Really, just chocolate in general, especially DARK chocolate
    Trader Joe's
    The internet
    Child car seats

  8. I'm glad you're back!! Email me your address and I will send you TWO business cards, which I know is one more than anyone should have. (If the spam filter catches you, just click the "request to be added" link.)

    Today I am thankful for having a few hours to myself and a sweet dog with whom to share them. (We are about to go to the vet for shots, so she may not be so thankful.)

  9. Glad to know you are back -- was wondering where you went!

  10. I'm so glad you are back around these here parts! I missed you!

  11. Wonderful list Judy! I have NEVER been in a Trader Joe's. There are none around these parts. *pouts*

    I got the swap me!

  12. Ditto on the Trader Joe's. It's grown to a Mecca of improbable glory in my imagination!

    Happy New year and glad you are back. Oh, this year will be the best ever! I can tell!

    Thankful for YOU and jonesing for a swap!

    Mary Beth
