Blog Tag!

Tag I'am It!!!

Yes, I just got tagged by my friend Rainbow @ Rainbow's Daily Life, and I want to thank her for thinking of me. If you have not met her, stop by and get to know one of the sweetest spirits this side of Heaven!

For the last few weeks I have been neglecting my blogs and this will give me a chance to get in the swing of things again. Now, I have to answer a few questions and then pass the fun to others!

1.   Do you think you are hot?

      Today, my answer is NO!  I am sitting in the condo with the AC running and I feel very comfortable.
      Last week, when I was in Loveland, my answer would have been much different. We do not have AC
      and with baseboard water heating, we can not just add a unit for air conditioning.

2.   Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at this moment.
This is a picture of some of the Grandkiddo's about seven years ago!
3.  When was the last time you ate chicken?

     The last time I ate chicken was last night, Sunday, and it was the Texan Chicken which we buy at
     King Soopers (Kroger) in the butcher department.  Hubby does not like chicken because he worked at a
     packing plant when he was eighteen and from the stories he tells, I would not like it either. The chicken
     from Kings, which is stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, is the only chicken he can tolerate.

4.   What was the last song you listened to?

       I was just visiting Donna @ The House on the Corner and she shared this video of the song Love Has 
       Come by Mark Schulz. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

5.  What were you thinking while doing this?
      I was thinking that the vacuum is calling my name!

6.   Do you have any nicknames? What are they?
      When I was younger, my Dad called me Bubble Butt ( I do not know why??). My Grandmother 
      always called me Dolly and I can still hear her voice when I think about her. My brothers used to call  
      me Sissy.  My favorite nicknames are Mom and Nana!

Now I need to pass this on: This is the hardest part, to pick eight bloggers that I hope will be able to complete the task! Summer is such a busy time and if you can not get to it now, save the questions and answer at another time!

Wendy, my oldest daughter, @ Skousen Seven
Amber, my youngest daughter, @ Are You as Lost as Me, Lets take a Walk.
Julie @ Engine3-The Life of Riley
Pam @ Empty Nest
Manzanita @ Wanna Buy a Duck
Jamie @ Beyond the Kitchen Window
Hilary @ Feeling Beachie
Old Kitty @ Ten Lives Second Chances

If you have not met these wonderful women, please stop by and give them some bloggy love!


  1. I enjoyed reading your answers! Hey, when the vacuum calls my name I run and hide!

  2. Shawn,
    I am so humbled that you think of me the way you spoke of. I am just an honest person that came from a family of honesty and values.


  3. Shawn, thank you for thinking of me. That is the cutest little animated cat widget. You have an adorable bunch of grand kidlets. I bet that picture makes Nana proud as punch. Just think, they are all here and sweet and loveable because of you. (and Bill)

  4. I just realized that I've never signed up as a follower on this blog. That's why I can never find you on my blog roll. I only signed on to your running one. so I signed up now... finally.

  5. what a lovely photo of your grandchildren. I can see why you would use it as your wallpaper.

  6. Cute pic ot the grandkids! I think working in a chicken plant must be one of the worst jobs...I get a little grossed out handlilng it when its already been packaged : )

  7. I thought maybe for #1 you would have say 'yes, I'm one hot cookie', lol.

  8. Hope you get to stay cool as the heat wave moves east. Hot mama had a totally different meaning to me! He....he

  9. I've never heard of Texan Chicken and it sounds AWESOME!!! I'll be looking for some immediately!

  10. @LynnMarie, why can't I get to your blog by clicking on your name or picture?

  11. My dad still calls me Pooh Bear and I'm almost 50!

  12. those little grandchildren are ADORABLE!
