I've Been Tagged Twice!

Hello everyone. In the past week, I have been tagged twice by my bloggy friends.

The first challenge came from my friend Jean at The Daisy Chain~

I am to open my photo folders to the sixth folder of pictures. Then I am to choose the sixth picture from the folder and post it on my blog with a description of the photo.

This picture was taken in October of last year of two of my little grandsons. The little guy with the cap on backwards is Jared and he is three years old. He is wearing his Montreal Canadians hockey jersey which had been a Christmas present from Hubby and me. Why Montreal Canadians, you ask? Because their father is a Canadians fan! If Hubby had had his way, it would have been a Detroit Red Wings jersey, which is Hubby's favourite team!

Jared's brother Brent is sitting next to him, and he is five years old. That day they had come for a visit with their Daddy, my son Jeff. The boys were watching cartoons in the den which used to be my son Jordan's room. They were watching cartoons and having a snack which is why Jared has a dirty face. *smile* Brent is holding two of my weights {which I can't use at the present time} with his friend Roby, the yellow robot, sitting beside him on the couch. Roby is a robot which was a Christmas gift to my son Jordan from his brother Joel, once upon a time.
The boys love to play with the robot and they take turns playing with him. Roby has been known to be the cause of a squabble every now and then too. This robot eats your money and the little guys love to play with him! You can't tell from the picture but these two little guys have the longest eyelashes! I think they're both gorgeous little men and they make my world a happier place!

Now, I'm supposed to tag six of my bloggy friends. I usually don't break the rules, but I hope you will forgive me Jean if I don't tag anyone. However, if any of my friends would like to participate then I would love to know about it.

The second challenge came from my friend Melly at His Pink Princess~ over in Aussie Land.

I am to name the following:

8 things I am looking forward to-

1. Seeing my Lord face to face, someday.

2. The fruit of the Spirit more evident in my life.

3. Celebrating my Wedding Anniversary with my hubby next month.

4. Real signs of Spring~ green grass, lacey trees, flowers blooming, waking up to the sounds of the birds singing, watching my gold finches at the feeders, spring-peepers singing behind our house in the evenings, and warmer weather.

5. Summer vacation so we can spend our time at the beach.

6. Getting all my paint projects finished; that includes my mosaic topped table.

7. Getting my new garden put in.

Now, I'm supposed to tag 8 blogging friends. I know most of you lead busy lives so I'm not going to tag any one. However, if you would like to play, I would love to know about it.

Have a wonderful day everyone!


  1. Hi Sandi,
    Two great posts! Thank you for participating even though you are still in "recovery!" :-)


    P.S. Your grandsons are very handsome! They are going to turn lots of heads when they get older!!

  2. That's the nicest thoughtful thing, not to tag anyone and just give them the option to play along.

    I love your #1 & 2 on things you're looking forward to. I'm so with you there.

    I'm also waiting on the real signs of spring & summer. Don't know about a vacation though.

    When the TV is on, which isn't too often, I love Law and Order and the Food Channel.

    Something I did yesterday - Slept almost all day and so needed that.

    Something I wish I could do - Find a job that fills me up Spiritually.

    I'm working on a book and you can write one too. The great thing about writing one is, it's finished when you finish it. I have been writing two books since 2006 and life does get busy, but I have no doubt that the Lord will fulfil that dream for me. One is Poetry and the other is Short stories. You know what they say about dreams? Sometimes on the way to a dream, you find a better one.

    I'll be at your book signing, just let me know that date, time and location (smile)

    Love, peace and blessings!
    PS Glad you're over the flu and I need to use your stationary bike, my brownie fettish got a little out of hand this past winter :-)

  3. Hi Sandi,
