A Boat Load Of Stuff For Your Viewing Pleasure



Say there’s a book written about your life. Who would you want to narrate the audio version?

DeeDee! I have no idea what she sounds like, but I know with her sense of humor she would bring life to my rather dull story. Plus she loves Donny Osmond and well, who can blame her?!


Take the letters from your favorite kind of nut and write a sentence. (Example: Perhaps every avenue needs understanding today.)

"Cats are stupid!", Harry exclaimed wildly.


If you could go back in time and spend one week in another decade, which decade would you choose?

Well, let's pretend for a moment that I didn't have arthritis, okay? I would love to spend a week with Laura Ingalls Wilder as a young girl. Having to rise early every morning to do my chores, walking to school, chores in the evening, no electricity, no indoor plumbing, no Romano's Macaroni Grill, no internet, *sniff* no Donny Osmond, *sniff*...well, who wouldn't want that?

Main Course

Name a song that brings back memories for you.

Hard to narrow it down to one, but every time I hear Jesse's Girl by Rick Springfield I think of me and my friend Angie getting to go to his concert all by ourselves at the Indiana State Fair. She and I were both very mature and decided we weren't going to be like all the other girls and scream and carry on when Rick came on stage. No, not us! The moment he came out (we had very good seats, btw) she and I looked at each other and started screaming as loud as we could! That's us, mature.

And anything by Journey because my husband always sang me their beautiful ballads when we were dating....and still does. And my dear hubby CAN sing as well as Steve Perry...honest! I'm a lucky gal for sure.


Do you prefer to wash your hands in cold water or warm water?

As warm as I can stand with soap from Bath & Body works. Does cold water even get the germs and disgusting things off your hands?


51. We've had a good amount of rain and the lawn is starting to turn green again!

52. We have new neighbors right next door and the dear woman of the house just brought over some tomatoes! And since I am th eonly one in the house that likes 'em...I'm going to have a mater samich for a snack!

53. Kailani sent me something in the mail today that has made me smile all day!

54. My daughter's went shopping today and brought me home three nice gifts from Bath & Body works! How spoiled am I? And clean too!

55. My mom bought me AAA batteries for my Game Boy so I can play Tetris. What? That is too a blessing! Plus I keep beating all my old scores :o)

56. Mom also gave me a new cookie cookbook using only cake mixes. The easier the better I always say. Can't wait to look at it this weekend!

57. Knowing that my next hip replacement is only 17 days away!

58. Air conditioning. Truly blessed indeed, need I say more?

59. Surviving the first week and half of school and getting back in the routine of things!

60. I feel blessed this week too because I have made some real connections with some of my blogging friends. I owe several an e-mail, but it's nice to have so many friends to talk to. I really do love you guys and I think about all of you throughout the day.

I do have many blessings to share, but would you pray for me this week? I can't explain my needs and won't be able to in the future either, but if you think about me this weekend please pray for me...He knows what's needed. Thank you.

Your next surgery is only 17 days away. Wow! It'll be here before you know it.

Lucky you to have a husband who can sing!!! :) and an awesome cook too.

YOu like cashews too. Your sentence was very funny!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

YES, Amy. I'll pray for you about the things you (didn't) mention. God always knows . . . and I will be praying about your next surgery too--only 17 days away! Wow! It seems like you just got home from the hospital from your last surgery.
Regarding your Friday's Feast: I love your Salad answer and I really wish I would have thought of that myself. And your nut sentence was great! I was going to pick Macadamia (I'm not even sure if I spelled that correctly) nuts, but I was having a hard enough time dealing with the 6 letters in the word pecan.
And your husband really sings that well? Wow. Wow. I'll say it again. Wow. My husband can hardly stay on key, let alone sing Journey. You are one fortunate gal!
Thanks for the blessing of your blog.

Hello, I received your sweet e-mail. I know the days must be ticking slowly with the anticipation of being on the other side of this battle. Be Embraced. I miss those late night songs from my hubby.

Great feast, Amy, and without a doubt, your "nut" sentence was the best I have seen :)

Lots of wonderful blessings there. I totally agree on the air condtioning. Ours is running nearly nonstop with this oppressive heat, but the alternative of not having it is much worse.

Take care and have a great weekend!!!
