I've Been Tagged!!

My friend Kim tagged me, So I found the thing I'm supposed to do and here are my answers:
I've been tagged by my good friend Kim and here are some of my answers:

Meme #1

Here are the rules...

1) Pick up the nearest book of at least 123 pages.
2) Open the book to page 123.
3) Find the 5th sentence.
4) Post the next 3 sentences.
5) Tag 5 people.

The nearest book to me is Debbie Macomber's "The Christmas Basket". I haven't read it yet but hope to in the near future. The next 3 sentences after the 5th one reads as follows:

" Ah..."
Her father raised his hand. "Say no more. What do you want me to tell your mother if she asks?"
"That I've gone shopping... We're meeting at the mall."

Now for......Meme # 2

Spring is coming.. I told ya.

Here is proof that spring is coming. My tulips are coming up!!!!! We just got done with round one of some rain and we are due to have some major rain come Thursday. I can't wait for the rest of the bulbs to sprout in the coming weeks. Husband did some planting of bulbs back in the fall and we still aren't real sure if they will come up this year. These are tulips that were planted before we moved into this house and were a wonderful surprise when they came up the following year.

I'm still plugging away on Nichole's 8th Grade Graduation project and will post a picture when it's completed and I have given it to her. (Just in case she reads this.) I still can't believe that Nichole will be a Freshman in High School in the fall, it seems like just yesterday I found out that I was pregnant with her. Time flies. Hope you are all having a good day.

Not much going on..

Except that my tulips are starting to come out and there is hope that Spring is coming. This past weekend was beautiful and now that the new week is here we are supposed to get cooler weather and rain (This IS Wisconsin mind you.) I also got a new recliner as my old chair wasn't cutting it any longer. I'll post a picture of something soon (hopefully my newly sprouted tulips.)

On a sad note, today is the 5th anniversary of my father's passing. I miss him terribly but realize that he's no longer suffering and is in a better place.

Enough with the sadness.
