It's Been Awhile

Today really is Valentines Day! I hosted a meeting at work today and here are the goodies I brought (dependable pretzels and tissue holders) with the table runner that I managed to get bound and quilted!
I managed to mess up my computer, doing something as simple as putting password protection on it so that a guest could use it while I was away. DUH DUH DUH!!! I set to password protect and didn't have the administrator password. Sure messed me up. I ended up having to do a recovery on the computer and since I only know enough to make me dangerous, I haven't been able to re-establish what I had. It feels like I'm using somebody else's computer!
Other than that I haven't been able to accomplish much, just working at work and then petsitting. I'm still working on bock #3 of my P&P BOM and the ever lovin turtles. I've got a plan for those turtles tho, and I've been working on that, it's getting there. I'm just soooo sllloooowww (hmm kinda like those turtles!). Here's a little of the turtle progress..
And... While I was gone it looks like Kris came over and Tagged me for the 7 weird/strange things meme. I hope these few items don't make you think I'm even stranger than you already thought!

The Rules: 1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you. 2. Post THE RULES on your blog. 3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog. 4. Tag 7 people and link to them. 5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged. Here we go.... 1. If you give me a plate of food, I will eat it all. But only one item at a time and I save what I like best for last.

2. I've lived in Houma, Louisianna and Katy, Texas for short periods of time, 20 years ago. Other than that I've only lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.

3. I was born in Berkeley, California. (see! I had weird beginnings!)
4. My grandparents homesteaded desert property outside of Las Vegas Nevada. They both worked in the casinos. As a child I slept on their roof!
5. I've only ridden a horse once and that was a pony in the park (same with riding a train!)
6. I've never been on ice skates or snow skiis
7. I have to read at least a page or two every nite before I go to sleep.(my sleeping pill)
ok thats it. Now for my tags.... hmm I need to find somone who hasn't been tagged.
SuBee, Vicky(she's havin a blogaversary giveaway!,Alison, Bon, and Laurie
I think I'm at the end of this game, so if I tag you and you've already done it... OH WELL!!! I'll be back home on Saturday, hope my computer finds it way home. Toodles!

You mean to tell me there are folks out there that mix up their foods and don't save the best one for last? *gasp* I have eaten the same way since I was a little girl . . . although in public I make a humongous effort to 'mix it up' a little so people don't gawk or comment *s*

Welcome back, we missed you! I think we can all totally relate to computer snafus.
Never ridden a horse? Oh my.....(hee hee)
I'll have to narrow my list of weird things down to 7 -- check me tomorrow because it will take some thinking!

Kris said...

My evil plan to bring you back worked! Yeah!

Sherry said...

Computers what fun...started using them in the late 80s when we switched from manual to computerized bookkeeping at work, and aren't hard drive recoveries fun? NOT! LOL I'm really enjoying reading everyone's 7 weird things...I've never been on skis myself....I enjoy your blog. Happy Valentine's Day!

We've missed you Mar! Your little valentine display is beautiful -- I'll bet they love you at work. Wonderful meme answers -- the variety of things that people come up with always amaze me and you're no different!
