~ An Award, An Update and A Prayer Request ~

I am so excited!  I received this lovely Blog Award from Suzanne over at You Made That. If you're not familiar with her blog, by all means please check it out!  She is an amazing cook and very talented crafter too.  I drool over her recipes and gain about 5 lbs when I view those lusicous dishes.  It's customary to share this award with 15 others and there are so many blogs I would love to honor, however, a great many of them are award and tag free.  I am going to share with the following though, in no particular order:

Some of these may be award/tag free  ~ I haven't thoroughly checked all of them.  Most I'm very aware of.  IF you are mentioned and do not accept awards, then you can be Honorary!  :-)

I cannot tell you how much better I've felt today!  This week has been such a drag....dizzy, nauseous, meds, rest, tons of water but hey, it's working!  I've been sort of busy today trying to get my house in order and decorating a bit.  Perhaps photos later!

In case you are unaware, precious Heidi at Heart and Home lost her father Saturday, 25th. She will be away for awhile. If you could please remember her and her family in prayer I know it would be so appreciated!

    I am glad that you are feeling better also.

  6. Oh Pat I'm so sorry that you haven't been feeling well... I've had to take a few days off from blogging to get myself back on track, I've kinda been falling back into the bad habit of sitting in front of the computer too long again.
    It's sooo sweet of you to think of me and my blog, and I humbly accept an honorary award! Thank you!!

    I hope you have a nice relaxing day my friend!

    Big hugs, Sherri:)

  7. I love Heidi! I will have to send her my blessings. Thank you for the award. I will be blogging about it! Hope this week is a good one for you!

  8. Hi Pat...

    My friend, I didn't realize that you were having problems with the vertigo again but so happy to hear that you are starting to feel better! Ohhh my...that stuff is horrible! Feel better, sweet lady!

    Well my dear, Congratulations on receiving this blog and your delighful blog are soooo deserving! I just wanted to stop by to say hello after reading the sweet note that you left for me yesterday! It's always such a joy to have you stop in, Pat! Thank you!!!

    Warmest autumn wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  9. Pat I'm so happy you are feeling better. I'm so sorry to hear the sad news about her father passing. I will pray for them.

    Thank you for your input on my room change ideas. Since we have no children we can have a formal living room but 99% of military families do have them and would definitely be using the living room as an office. It does have glass french doors already. The upstairs/bonus room would only need a new tv console to accomadate the tv that is in our family room now. I would move everything from the living upsatirs. Sigh...I'm not quite sure I want to do all of this work. Alex says it sounds great which surprised me he was willing to do this. He is so busy at work right now. I'll keep you posted on it!

    Happy day to you! ~Melissa :)

  10. Hi! Somehow I missed this post and just saw your message. Thank you for passing your award my way and congrats to you for getting it in the first place. You know that I love your blog and treasure your friendship.

    I did know about Heidi's father and as you can imagine, my heart aches for what she is going through.

    I'm glad you are feeling better!

  11. Hi Pat, Thank you so much for thinking of me with this award! I love it! Did you know my daughter had her baby last week! She had a little girl! Six pounds 10 oz. Very cute too!
    Thank you again for this!

  12. Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by today and leaving such a sweet comment! How have I not already met you here in blogland??? :-) I love your blog already and can't wait to look through more of your posts!
    Looking forward to seeing more of you and I'm a new follower!
    P.S. So sorry about the Vertigo! My dad has been suddenly experiencing that and it is SO NOT FUN! :-(

  13. Hi Pat,

    I've stopped by to visit from Vanessa's blog. I'm so sorry to hear about the vertigo. I had that once and it was a real bugger to get over, the floors felt weird in my head. Hope you are feeling better very soon and I look forward to checking back in with you!

  14. Thank you so much!! It's so nice to meet you!! Congrats on all your awards; aren't they fun?? :o)

  15. Pat, I knew I remembered seeing something about the blog award on a post....I could not for the life of me remember where! LOL. I've been browsing back thru everybody's blogs trying to jog my memory so I could respond. It was sweet of you to pass this along to me....I am working on a post this afternoon to address it! What an honor!


It makes my Heart happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello. I want to respond to each comment, however, if you are a "no reply blogger" I can't. Would love to have an email address to contact you!
