Don't hide! Let me know if you're here!!

My hubby and daughter went out visiting some people that had come to our church for the first time and they also made some stops at some of our members homes. This is a regular Saturday for my husband and we all usually join him, but sometimes he will take just one of the girls if I have another appointment.
Well, Taryn accompanied him this last Saturday and when they returned she had some flowers for me from one of our ladies. They were beautiful. Some purple flowers and some giant red roses...loved them! I immediately took them to the kitchen and arranged them, cut the ends, found a vase, put them in know the drill.
On Sunday afternoon I decided that I didn't quite care for the way the purple ones smelled. I had to put them outside. Just too strong. Anyway, I rearranged the roses and was happy with my flowers once again. On Monday morning, my husband was at the table where the flowers were. He suddenly calls out for me and asks if I had noticed anything....
Hmmmm...what? No...I don't think...Yikes! Where'd THAT come from? Do you see him yet? =)
There he was. Just cruising along. Okay, not really cruising, but he was moving. I had to laugh. He was there through all of that cutting, rearranging, adding flowers, throwing out flowers.... He just never let me see him. Thank goodness he wasn't a big spider! *shiver*

So I know that I have been MIA and my posts have slowed down, but I am here and I am really motivated to stick around. I'm just wondering who still stops by. Can you do me a favor? Drop me a note in my comments or whatever to let me know. Don't hide...I want to be a good hostess and know how many are stopping in here. =)
He looks cool, huh? ;>

I'm so glad he wasn't at our house! The boys have discovered what salt does to them thanks to their grandpa.

Katrina said...

I would have freaked! I love reading your blogs and completely understand the need to know who is out there and who isn't. You are a great example to all of us who read your blogs. ;-) Thank-you!!

Love them lil snails... but how weird you never saw it?

Last week I reached for a handful of ivy that grows through the walls inside the potting shed. I was gonna jerk that part of it down coz it's too thick in there and something bit me/stung me... as soon as I grabbed it. Hurt so bad and like you.. I never saw it! I ran to the guys and Trent got this serum stuff we have for stings. I was scared coz wasn't sure what it was? I was even making sure there was just one hole and not two coz I worried it was a snake? Never did find it. But we think it was just a wasp.
So I'm with you on the spider thing... and will be more watchful. lol
Happy to be here today dear Sherry!
Hope you're havin a great day!

I miss you! I rarely visit our Scrappin board anymore. Are you not on Facebook anymore? I don't think I've seen you post anything in the longest time! Even though we have never met, I feel connected to you wonder if you are ok and how the family is doing! Blessings to you!
