Valentine's Day Questionnaire

I found the following questionnaire at PEA's Corner. Although I won't be joining the Valentine's Day Goody Swap, I thought it would still be fun to share my answers to the questionnaire.

* What is your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day?

Having my husband give me a HUGE heart shaped box filled with fat free, 0 calorie, chocolates that taste just like Godiva Chocolates.

In the evening, we'd go out for a romantic dinner at my favorite restaurant.

* In reality, what is your Valentine’s Day really like?

It's like any other day, except I usually do get a small heart shaped box of fattening chocolates.

* If you could have a lifetime supply of your favorite sweet indulgence, what would it be?

Chocolate frosted chocolate cake.

* Is there any sweet treat you absolutely do not like?

Sadly, dark chocolate...the one that's good for you.

* If you fell into a pool of chocolate, how would you get out?

If it was milk chocolate, I'd eat my way out. :)

What's New

Ditch Cabin Fever ~ Catch Croppin Fever!

If you are a scrapbooker, or if you'd like to learn how to scrapbook, I hope you'll join us this coming week-end ( January 19th-21st) in the Forums at Memory Book Inspirations!


Today, I added a January Calendar page that I did 2 years ago, to Garden Scrapbooking. After you look at the blog, you can read about the challenge I've issued for all gardeners to create a 2007 Garden Calendar. :)

Although I still have a lot of posts to add to my new blog, Trudi's Lung Cancer Story, I'm slowly getting there. As my strength returns, I'll continue adding notes until it's up-to-date.
Does anyone know where I might be able to find some clear glass Christmas ornaments? I had planned on buying some during the after Christmas sales, but needless to say, I wasn't able to get to the store. My husband checked our local discount stores, A.C. Moore and Michael's Craft Store the other day, but they're all sold out. I know it's silly to be worrying about Christmas ornaments now, but I was really hoping to get these made soon. I have all the supplies I need, except for the actual glass ornaments. I need about 20 of them.
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for me!

Some people will do anything!

Some people will do anything for attention. Or, to get out of having a colonoscopy! LOL

If you don't already know, it turns out that I do not have colon cancer. What I have is Stage 4 Lung Cancer, with mets to the brain and adrenal glands.

I have started a new blog called "Trudi's Lung Cancer Story". That's where I'll post updates about my condition and treatments. THIS blog will return to being primarily about home & gardening subjects.
