Tagged, Sick & Santas, ThanksGivings....

I KNOW!!! I've been missed!!! Forgive me, but being sick takes time, and takes a LOT out of a poor body, such as mine! Remember, I am one with an Immunity Problem due to the Anemia, so things take much longer, and hit me harder than for most others....sniff, sniff, hack, hack!
Yes...I AM still sick...still on the tail ends of getting to that 100% mark, but I am hoping for MUCH improvement over the next few days!
I have much to be Thankful for....and I will be giving my thanks tomorrow!!!

Other than that, I have had some good moments! I managed to get some more Fall Decor put out, around the house, and came up with this...

My joke has been this: I will finally be DONE decorating by just enough time when my DH, Craig will be dragging all the Christmas Stuff in....Geez! Like I didn't have enough to do, now I have to figure out Christmas Decor! LOL!

I think I know what that Christmas Decor is going to involve...YEP!!! SANTAS!!! Seems I have a new addiction, since Craig and I went to the Kris Kringle craft show in Hagerstown, MD, over the past weekend, and look what we found!!!

The Santa on the left is a Gourd, and it has clay-scultured features, which I thought gave him an OLDE WORLD look, and I love those simple looking Santas...the One on the right of the Gourd is a fence picket, and it also has a sculpted face, but I believe that it is paper mache...but I couldn't resist, and if you could have seen how many times I walked around all these Santas in just THIS one booth, you would've wanted to hurt me! I think Craig was ready to strangle me....he was getting irritable...LOL!
The Santa with lights was really neat, and I passed by this one several times, and kept referring to it as MY SANTA...and on our way back to the front door, I finally stopped and Craig said, you better get it, cuz you keep saying it's yours and we're leaving, and you'll hate yourself for not getting it, this is your last chance, blah, blah, blah....I knew he was right!!! So I picked him up and here he the heck am I gonna put HIM! Oh well, I'll figure that out later!
Last but not least, I picked up some potpourri that was called Colonial Christmas....wonderful Scent!!!

So...I've been TAGGED by Dianne at Plum Purdy Prims ---hmmm....I've seen it elsewhere, and have NO IDEA what to do, so I have to figure it out, but I'm gonna give it a whirl. First I have to list the "rules" and then give a list of UNKNOWN things about me for all my devoted readers to learn about....That's hard!!!
Then I have to PICK PEOPLE to TAG, and that is going to be HARDER!!! Oh My!!! Here goes!

The rules are as follows:

Rule #1 ~ Link to the person that tagged you.
Rule #2 ~ Post the rules on your Blog.
Rule #3 ~ Write 6 random things about yourself.
Rule #4 ~ Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
Rule #5 ~ Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their Blog.
Rule #6 ~ Let the tagger know your entry is up.

Now for the Six random things about myself.....hmmm, well....okay, here goes!

1. I detest make-up! I go thru periods when I will wear it for a few weeks, and then Quit!

2. I hate to wear shoes!!!

3. I hang out in my nightshirts for most of the day, if not all day, simply out of comfort!

4. I don't care for REALLY SWEET stuffs....chocolate does NOT call my name and haunt me,
and I would much rather have a shortbread or butter cookie next to chocolate chip!

5. I don't drink alcohol....okay, I lied....I drank on the Cruise, but if you go back and read that
particular post, you will find out that hubby and I couldn't even THINK when the last time
I had a drink containing alcohol, other than NyQuil...LOL!

6. All my talents are SELF-TAUGHT/LEARNED...from Gardening, Landscaping, Crafting, or
Computer anything...I've learned it all on my own...NO classes! that is a few things you may or may NOT know about me. Now....who do I tag???

Hi Robin,
Thanks for the tag! I have been to your blog before because my Mom brought you up to me on the phone. She and I were laughing at how you and I both have the same name and that are blog names are the same except for "Rest" and "Nest!" I need a rest! :)
You and I have so much in common by your 6 answers other then I run around the house in a mens heavy duty flannel shirt and no shoes either. I have self taught myself everything. I don't drink acohol either and I USED to have anemia and a auto immune disorder until I took gluten out of my diet. Now I can breathe and my stomach doesn't hurt and I no longer have anemia. My diet is boring but I am getting healthy!
I do hope you can get yourself turned around and feeling better really soon. I've been where you are and I know how it feels-I got to where I could barely walk up a flight of stairs!
BTW: Love your Santas you got they are darling~
Have a great week!
