Tidbits

It's hard to find time to post when I'm busy, but at least I'm doing interesting things to post about... eventually! This is just a catch up post to tell you some of the things we've been up to.

I've gotten in some good drum sessions since I was inspired by the Percussion Summit. It's a lot of fun, and a bit of an outlet to jam on my snare drum, all by myself in my kitchen. None of the neighbors have complained so far. Some one asked me what I wore - hubby won't let me post pics of myself, but here are the clothes, anyway, some of which I bought on our pre-percussion shopping trip! I wore the gold sandals that I already had, with the coral tunic blouse, below, and a navy "skinny skirt," which you can just see in the photo with the red blouse, which of course I couldn't resist getting.

I have been presented with two new awards! I love awards. They make me feel special, which is always a nice feeling.

The first one is from Merle, and I am very honored to receive the Million Dollar Friend award from such a sweet lady!

The one above is from a new friend, Sparky, who has a fun blog that I "wuv" too!

There were some rules, which I am going to shamelessly and blatantly break, with apologies to the above ladies. On the other hand, what I really want to do is pass them on in reverse, to Merle and Sparky! Merle, "I Wuv Your Blog!" and Sparky, you are my new "Million Dollar Friend!"

A few weekends ago, we had a 3-day weekend in which we were supposed to patch, paint, garden, do laundry and grocery shopping and cleaning, deliver birthday presents to a niece and a nephew, and a million other things we thought we could squeeze in. So when my hubby woke me Friday morning, I was ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. But he surprised me by saying, "Let's go to Sea World instead!" Well of course I said "Great!!!" We'd gone there for our honeymoon 30 years ago and had hoped to go back in honor of our 30th anniversary, so that's what we did, and we had a marvelous time! I'll tell all about it next post. Right after I get caught up on patching, painting, laundry and groceries, gardening, birthdays...

Isn't that the way, Tracie? We need some elves to do the painting, grocery shopping, sweeping up while our time is spent elsewhere!

OOoo la la! I love your coral tunic blouse. Bang away on those drums. The noise doesn't bother me!!! Hahaha!

Aw shucks, thanks for the kind words Rosezilla! Hey, I'm worth a million dollars, 'ey? Don't tell the government 'cause I don't want to pay taxes on that, 'k? LOL Thanks for the pass back. You're a great lady too. [smile]

I like the elves idea that a previous post mentioned ... could we arrange that somehow ... ?? They probably work for a song. ha ha ♥ ∞

I am intrigued about the drumming, please tell us more! My husband is a drummer and one of the things I wanted to accomplish was to play a song on his set! He has all the bells and whistles and cowbell :)
Your husband just wants to keep you to himself...how sweet is that!!!

I could be a drummer... Although I think I am more of Bongo person than a drum person! ;o)
Loved the catch up entry, things can get a busy at times, I know I have had a bit of hectic time of late. The sandals are very pretty... I never wear 'pretty' stuff... not sure why. Usually black or brown ankle boots and occasionally I wear my trainers. (sneekers?) Oh and my wooly slipper socks! love them!
Congrats on the awards, you more than deserve them! :o)

I'll bet you play a mean snare drum, Tracie! Good for you! Excellent for processing frustrations, I imagine. And I too love your bright blouse and beads! How lovely you were able to enjoy a day at Sea World. What a treat.

Congratulations! I love that million dollar blog award! It's adorable. I like your ensemble as posted in your pics here. You have been busy, so glad you were able to catch us up a bit.....

Merle said...

Hi Rosezilla ~~ Thank you so much for the award and I am glad you are pleased with yours. Sounds like you are enjoying your drumming, great to have something you like doing and be able to do it. Your sister was a tease when you were young. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Today I have a day off to catch up with chores? I am getting out in the garden for about an hour this afternoon, before my dad/step-mum arrive for tea and cakes. Guess what I have been doing most of the morning, blogging! x
