There are some really nice people out there. . .




Debbie at 'There's An Angel On My Front Porch' (click here) gave me this award. I appreciate it.

"THESE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS AWESOME AWARD:

GRAB THE BUTTON
POST IT ON YOUR BLOG
MAKE SURE YOU TELL YOUR FRIENDS I (DEBBIE) GAVE YOU THE AWARD
(THIS WOULD SURELY MAKE SENSE, BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT "FRIENDS")
MAKE SURE YOU SHARE THE AWARD WITH AT LEAST 5 OTHER "FRIENDS"

SHARE 5 THINGS YOU LIKE TO DO:

1. I LIKE/LOVE TO RUMMAGE THROUGH THRIFT STORES - me too! It's fun to see what you can find.
2. I like to go out to eat and try new places and go to movies with my girlfriends.
3. I LIKE/LOVE TO READ MAGAZINES, newspapers, and books and listen to books on tape while I'm driving - anything I can get my hands on - that's interesting to me of course.
4. I LOVE TO BLOG AND MAKE NEW FRIENDS.
5. I like to travel.

So now I'm throwing it out to every one who checks my blog -

What are your favorite things to do?

Happy Birthday Donnie Osmond:

Osmond married Debbie Glenn, on May 8, 1978. Together they have five sons: Donald Clark Osmond Jr., Jeremy James Osmond, Brandon Michael Osmond, Christopher Glenn Osmond, and Joshua Davis Osmond.

Osmond became a grandfather on August 21, 2005, when his second son Jeremy and daughter-in-law Melisa had a son, Dylan James Osmond. His granddaughter Emery was born on February 25, 2008. Osmond's third son Brandon married Shelby Hansen in 2008.

Donnie Osmond - in his 50's - Dancing With The Stars and winning - and he's a grandpa??? Impressive.

Love,
Chatty

I agree with what Joycee said above -- and she said it much better than I was going to do.

Happy everyday!

Chatty Crone said...

I would never hate anyone - I've said Happy Holidays myself - depends on the situation.

All I'm saying is that I don't restrict myself from saying it.

Oh, you look so festive! Love your December look.
What do I love to do? Putter...at home, feeling cozy, cooking, and just being in a snug abode, when the wind is howling outside.
It's warm, and peaceful, and I just love it.
Going out...now, that's a whole different ballgame...when the weather is frightful!

Love to go to thrift stores, garage sales or antique stores and find a bargin. There is always a stack of book by my reading chair as I sometimes read three books at a time. I call it my rat's nest. I feed the birds so I can watch them from rat's nest and especially love to see the cardinals in the snow.

Chatty Crone said...

I like puttering - staying in a cozy home - thrift stores - feeding birds - and I have a pile of books too!

And yes, Blogging is great!

Congratulations on your award Chatty! It is so sad that the cartoon is becoming so true in these times. I didn't know Donnie Osmond only had boys. Do they sing like him and his brothers did back in the day?

We were flooded in this morning. No one made to it school or work today! My husband put the Christmas lights on the house today. It's so windy that the electric went off for a few hours but it's back on now! We were fine because we have a generator so we got to watch tv. We watched the new Harry Potter movie today!
