And so it begins.........
What a day it was yesterday! We went to the new house for a final walk through, then to the Title company to sign papers. It was a little nerve wracking, as I got very sick on Sunday and my hubby locked his keys in his car on Monday afternoon. It was a day filled with excitement and some fun too. After we got the keys we went back to the house and had a pizza party!
But I know what you really want to know is - who won all those prizes!! Well before I tell you, I thought I would answer some of the questions I posed to you this past week. A few comments asked why I had not given my answers. So here goes -
Day 1 - I think most of you who read my blog know that I live in the Sunshine state of Florida. I love living here, mostly because we have nice warm weather 9 to 10 months out of the year. We have three children. A daughter who is 29, a son who turns 26 TODAY! and our 18 year old graduate :-) I have homeschooled our children all the way, and now I get to retire and move on to the next phase in life.
Day 2 - If I was not a quilter was a pretty hard question for us quiltaholics, right? Well I would love to play a musical instrument. I would love to play either the piano or the cello. I am always in awe to hear someone sit down at a piano and play beautiful music.
Day 3 - If money was no object, wow, what would I do? I don't really know, except that I would want to help people. Not people who are just looking for a hand out, but families that are struggling, widows, young people, old people. The list could go on.
Day 4 - The happiest moment in my life would have to be when I married the greatest guy in the whole world. I am blessed beyond measure to have a husband that puts up with me and loves me anyway. There are several saddest times. One would be when my Mom passed away, and when we lost several babies in miscarriage, and when my best friend died 5 years ago. These are things that ripped out my heart. The good news is, I know I will be reunited with each one of them one day, when we walk the streets of gold.
Day 5 - I had two teachers that influenced me growing up. My 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Hiegel, and my 10th grade English teacher, Mrs. Kenyon. They both encouraged me and gave me confidence to do things I never thought I could do. There were others I am sure, but they stick out in my mind. And there are many who inspire me today. I am inspired by women like Elisabeth Elliot and Amy Carmichael. People who have given all of themselves with no desire for anything in return.
Whew, well I am sure you are glad I am finished with that. So now on to the winners!
The Random Generator was working up a sweat today.

We are starting to move into the new house, but I will not delay in mailing. Thank you all again for celebrating with me! I have enjoyed getting to know each one of you. Friendships certainly crosses the cyber space miles.
