TGIF.... First Day of Summer

First let me apologize for no pics today as I am at work with no access to any good ones. This is all I have...

My office...

It has really been cool weather here it is 51 degrees this morning at 6am. It is suppose to be near 80 on this first day of Summer. I was almost going to post this morning that I thought I was becoming allergic to strawberries. That would have been total devastation! No... I have another case of poison ivy. I had it last year and it took me a month to get rid of it and going to the doctor 3 times. Right now it is on my neck. I have no idea how it started there. I suspect it is in the weeds around my house or in my strawberry patch. I hate this stuff. I am so itchy.

My good friend Rondell from Tomatoe Creek Primitives tagged me with some questions I will try to answer.

1.I was asked to name 5 things that I do for myself:
a. Get my hair colored and cut ... ummm every six months or so.
b. Plant annual flowers every year
c. Go to thrift stores and antique stores
d. Take the time to read new and old magazines that I have around the house
e. Craft

2.Name 5 kind things I do for friends, my children or partner:
a. Make them special meals and what they want
b. Pray for them each and every day
c. Listen to what they have to say... just not hear what they are saying
d. Try to keep a clean home for them to come home to
e. Take my kids to every appointment and their friend's house so hubby doesn't have to

3.Name 5 kind things I've done for a strangers:
a. Show empathy and kindness to every patient
b. Pass no judgment on other peoples way of life
c. Smile and tell everyone to have a nice day and thank them at stores
d. Hold doors open
e. Started a senior citizen program in the town I work to make them become more social

4.Name 5 hobbies I enjoy:
a. Making prim crafts from my own patterns because it is so challenging
b. Decorating and redecorating my home
c. Looking on the internet for others that have the same love of prims and the simple things in life and then writing and talking to them
d. Making new friends... I know kinda like up above I know. LOL
e. Teaching EMS "stuff"

Do you know how hard it was for me to answer these questions. I don't do many things for myself. Hmmm... I think this might be a wake up call don't ya think? LOL Ok I am going to try and tag 5 people... Remember you don't have to do this, but it is neat to find out a little more about each other. Sooo... the lucky or unlucky however you want to look at it are:

1. The Carter Clan (Joann)
2.The Fruit of Her Hands (Jill)
3. My Country Home (Leslie)
4. The Artful Life (Tina)

Ok I'm only going to do 4 as I don't know enough people to tag them. Not everyone knows me who I have in my Fav blogs.

Thanks for asking Rondell!!! You're the best.

Is that inside a EMT truck?

I knew you were a good person. I really like some of the things you do! Thank you for being compassionate to every patient. And we could all learn to pass no judgment couldn't we?

Loved the pictures!

I think just making a point to be nice and smile to people in a public place (especially if you're the one working behind the desk) is so important. It makes a world of difference in that person's day! That alone is wonderful!

HAve a great weekend!
