A Bad Bug, Awards and a Feature

Around 5 pm yesterday, I started to feel bad, and by 7 pm the bug had really bitten. I've been bedridden for the past 24 hours and am just starting to feel a bit better.

On Wednessday I received an award from Stitch of Love and yesterday, the same award came from Heather at The Good Life.

I am to share seven things about myself:
  1. I am originally from Mississippi but grew up in Texas and Louisiana.
  2. My cousin taught me to crochet when I was about 20.
  3. I met my husband on a blind date in New Orleans.
  4. I agreed to come to Kuwait for 2 years and it has now been 16.
  5. Home is my favorite place to be.
  6. Lemon meringue and key lime pies are my absolute favorite desserts.
  7. I'd rather have a handmade, homemade gift than a store bought one any day.

It's not easy coming up with anything interesting to share about myself and equally hard to pass along the award. The way I am feeling at the moment, I can barely think. Please visit both of these lovely ladies. They are excellent crocheters and I am always inspired by what they share.

I also received word from Cindy at I Owe It All To Whom that I was being featured today. Her posts this week have been about Friends. Cindy's other blog is Cindy Adkins' Whimsical Musings where she shares her mixed media art. That girl is always up to something fun and just celebrated a birthday on January 5th! Happy birthday again, Cindy, and thanks for being such a sweet blogger friend.

On that note, I think I need to head back to bed. My stomach is off and my head feels like it will explode. My sweet friend Jan at A Journey posted that she has been under the weather too so please swing by and leave her some get well wishes.

I hope you all are having a healthy, happy day. Friendship blessings, Tammy

SO sorry you're feeling ill, Tammy...not a great way to start off the year, is it?! Lots of rest, my friend.

So fun to learn a little more about you. I giggle at the 2-turned-to 16-years in Kuwait...that's what life is all about, itn't it? The things we just don't plan...

Home is my very favorite place to be, too.

Wishing you all better very soon, my dear friend...

Congrats on the award Tammy. Sorry you are feeling bad. I don't feel too hot myself. I have a head cold and earache. We still have snow on the ground. Looking toward the warm weather. Blessings

So hope you are feeling better! I have to laugh about the 2 years that has turned to 16. Isn't that life?

YIKES!! So sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. It makes me laugh to know that you still found the energy to post on your blog! A true blogger for sure!!!

Hope you got a chance to rest and are feeling better!!!

I sure hope that you are feeling better, soon, Tammy! It is no fun being sick! It was great getting to learn a few things about you. I met my hubby on a blind date, too 11 years ago this month! And I so agree on hand crafted gifts, I think they are so much more fun to not only make, but receive, too! And I love the same pies, yum! Feel better soon:)!
