This and That

I have a friend who has just started a blog after reading them for some time. Can you all stop over at Everyday Blessings and say Hi to Connie? I think you will like what she has to say! For my church friends, she is also known as Patty's Mom!

I also need to thank a few people for some awards. The one above is the "Best Follower" Award. It was given to me by Mike of Rambling Stuff.

I was also given the "Charming Blog" Award. This one came from Lara of Prossigo para o alvo. It doesn't come with a button but I'm supposed to list 7 random facts about myself for this one.
1) I'm the oldest child in my family
2) I was the youngest in my class, from Kindergarten all the way through Nursing School.
3) I never flew in an airplane until last year.
4) My parents both came from large families. I had 21 aunts and uncles, and that's not counting their spouses!
5) I love candles - the scented kind.
6) When I first started working as a nurse I frequently worked on the postpartum floor or the nursery. Now I work in a Nursing home. I've covered the whole spectrum!
7) I love the beauty that God has given us to enjoy in nature.
Thanks to Mike and Lara!
Don't forget to stop and visit Connie!

Hey Mari thanks so much for taking the time to help my Mom with making a blog. I really wasn't the one for the job since I don't have one. She's on facebook too, that doesn't leave much time for knitting. lol See ya soon,Patty
