I Got Tagged!

Well, I got tagged! While all the techie stuff was going on in my blog world I got an email from the Knitorious Mrs B that I had been tagged! Now I am very new to all of this. I had no idea what this meant. I assumed it was something like a hello I got you kinda thing. I was completely unable to post whatsoever so I knew there wasn't anything I could do.

After a few days I got another email saying "Hi Paula! You've been tagged! go to to see what it's all about! happy knitting!" At this point I am already mourning the obvious loss of my blog, and my DH says that he has heard of this too. He said that on his site ( that you can be tagged and you must respond. That is about all he said before conking out for the night. Well, don't you just know that my "little" mind just went nuts! I thought sure that I would get detention or something for not being able to participate! So, of course even more emails went flying to blogger support. I got an email off to Linda the knitoriousmrs B and explained why I wasn't being a team player...I am sure she thought I was nuts. (I am you know...all knitters are!) She was so sweet, calmed my nerves immensely, so while I have been trying to build a blog somewhere else....NO PLACE LIKE HOME...Blogger is fixed and I am back on the TEAM! Yipppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Paaaaleease! Now I am always telling my youngest dd that she is a total D-R-A-M-A Queen, and now I am seeing for sure where she had to have gotten it from! Who knew?! LOL

OK well here is how it goes... I am to list 6 weird things about me, and then I must tag 6 unsuspecting bloggers in the knitting world.....And list the rules... and notify these folks on their blog that they've been tagged...

So do you get all of that? Now I must go into the weird of ME: (I wouldn't want to ruin the fun...I will get my revenge on the next unsuspecting knitter!! muhaha!!)

1. I am a bit of a perfectionist. Apparently only on certain things...the ones I want to do, and everything else can just be flawed.

2. We bowl on Thursday nights, and if for some reason ER doesn't get recorded for later viewing...I can be known to throw a FIT! I always apologize later! :)

3. I am totally and forever addicted to POPCORN! I can just smell it now!

4. Wow this is getting hard...(you try telling on yourself!) OK OK, how about this? I am only 32 but I love making my 2 DD's giggle by reverting into ...." ya rekcon", an "shur nuff", and things like that! On the same note, since I was little my mom, grandmother, brother and I have always had our own little language. Silly things really, but it always takes boring and turns it to fun!

5. I cannot watch a scary movie without my feet being covered up. If it is 110*F in our house and we happen to watch something a little feet are under cover, kid, or husband!

6. My DH says HURRY....and that is like the foulest one word I have ever heard. I have been known to get downright huffy over it.

RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

OK I feel better... or maybe exposed, but I had to take on for the team! So will the next 6 knitters please STOP your needles and list your weird qualities to the world please!!!!

Okay that sums up my obligation. Not too painful, fun actually! I have chosen the following people because they are all people I have bookmarked and visit often. I think you are all so talented and I am just very excited to be able to pull up your blogs and see what you are up to. Happy knitting and I hope this will prove to be a fun time for all of you. God bless you each one!


Dead CAT?

Well, a very tragic but non knitting kinda story to share. Friday Jan 12 we found a cat dead in cousins drive way across the street. We had no doubt he was my daughters beloved cat. DH decided he would tell her in a few days. None of us looking forward to it at all as I am sure you can imagine.

Well, on Tuesday my FIL was out on front porch and he hears a familiar meow, meow. Do you know what happened next? Around the corner her came Tigger trotting pretty as punch right up to my FIL for a belly rub! How do you like that. Who's cat do you suppose we took care of that awful day? I don't know about you but that is the very first time I have ever wrongly identified someone else's kitty for ours. I even checked it out up close. I was so shocked!

Thankfully we had not told my DD yet! Of course, now she knows about it. I probably should have kept my mouth shut but I can't control that thing! Here is a pic of purdy kitty...Tigger.
Rather ravishing wouldn't you say?!

Here is a pic of "Buddy" the most adorable family member in the house. (Psst...Don't tell my girls I said that!!) He is one 1 1/2 yrs old. He is a Walmeriener/Australian shepherd mix. Very smart indeed. He is 6o lbs of energy!!

My too cute DD and Buddy! He is such a character. Of course, she is too!

I have to be more eyes are apparently not that trust worthy!


I am actually posting on my blog!!!! I have been locked out for a very long time! I have finally figured it out after blogger support stepped in. It was all a bunch of silliness with my browsers security settings. I guess since the big change over that it didn't recognize where all these pages came from so computer deemed them restricted and blocked sites. YAY Blogger Support...while on the slow side...are geniuses!!!

I'm back I'm back....I'm really really back!


Ps. Knitting on soon!
