Off to Florida!! And an award!

Well today was insane at work. I always do a full food inventory on the next to the last day of the month. So started early today, hoping to get out of work early as this is the last day I had to work before going on vacation. Of course this was at 5am this morning, left work at 4pm!! BUT, with being busy, having my big boss there, and trying to explain everything my supervisors needed to do the week I was on vacation, I still got great news. I was named Manager of the Year!!! This was the third year in a row, that I won. IT is great to be honored for all my hard work.
So even though I have a horrible cold and have been downing anything they say will work to get rid of it, I feel great. I am leaving tomorrow morning to go to Daytona, FL for bike week. I have never been to bike week in Daytona before. I have gone to Myrtle Beach bike week a few times and had a ball. I am sure Daytona will be even bigger and better. So everyone have a great week. I hope to have lots of pics to show when I get back. And if anyone sees this tonight and has any quilt shops in the Daytona area that I should check out, please let me know.

Got it Holee!!

That is what I have to do is go to postings and hit save. IT was driving me crazy.
Well one more week from today and I will be in Florida for bike week! I can`t wait, warm weather and sun. We are driving straight through on Saturday and spending the whole week. I will get a chance to hit a few quilt shops while there. And I have a friend that is going to be there the same week, so want to look her up while we have time. Tonight I didn`t have any thing to work on, well I do, but not what I was in the mood for. So I decided to make a gift for a friend. Sewed the pieces together and every thing went great. Trying out some bullion stitches on it. Did a lot of search online for hints on these stitches and they are easy. Just takes a long time.
Can`t post a picture right now. Its a surprise.

I don`t know why my blogs that I am watching in my side bar will not update!!! I have them all showing old posts and I have to click on them to get the newest postings. Has anyone else had this problem? And how did you solve it.
Thanks for any and all help.

What color is your rainbow

Your rainbow is intensely shaded violet, red, and black.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate mystery. You may meet people who are afraid of you. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at

If this worked right it is a color quiz, take it and it tells you, your colors of the rainbow. It is cool and does describe me in some ways.
Try it out and see what color your personal rainbow is.

Punxsutawney Phil

First off, today is Groundhog Day!! As I was born and raised in Punxsy, I must bow to wondrous Phil, and tell you all there will be six more weeks of winter weather.
I loved growing up in Punxsy, it is very small town. We use to go up on Gobblers Knob a lot back then, there was a few hundred people that would make the trek every year. We even had the day off of school if we wanted to go. Now, there are always like thousands of people from all over the world!! It has grown huge. Back in the old days lol, we use to drink at the bars and then go up and just keep drinking, there would be kegs of beer and a lot of young people having fun. Now you can not drink up there at all. I am really glad that so many people visit Gobblers Knob, but it is just to crowded for me now. If you ever get a chance to go to Punxsy on February 2nd, go, you will enjoy it. Also if you are there anytime, take a look around at all the things that are related to Phil. I will get my husband to take my picture with my Punxsutawney Phil shirt and post it later tonight or tomorrow.
