Ten random things in my life today

On any given day, a multitude of things go on in our lives, from simple to complex or from happy to sad. I like to ask friends "What's going on?" and I hate the answer "Nothing". So from where I stand, here are ten things going on in my life today, in no particular order:

1. I finished the design of a new sampler and pulled the fabric and threads to start stitching the model.

2. I found out my nephew, Josh, has been deployed to Afghanistan.

3. I left a happy birthday song for my sister on Facebook.

4. I left the door to the bird cage open accidentally and one of the finches flew out into the room.

5. I worked on arranging the books on the shelves that Bob and I put up yesterday.

6. I received a nice note from Elizabeth and Jeff which they wrote while on their honeymoon. (?)

7. I watched 5 episodes of Dark Shadows while drinking my morning coffee.

8. I felt a few raindrops when I went outside to get the mail.

9. I found myself looking at pictures of my friends from the Carolinas and missing them.

10. I received an email reminder that there is an EGA gathering tonight. Looking forward to making new Texas friends.

So, I challenge my blogging friends who have "nothing" going on, you can always find a list of things going on in your day or in your thoughts. Please leave a comment for me if you post a list of "Ten Randon Things In My Life Today". I'd love to read about it!

Didn't know you had 2 blogs. Love this one too. I'll have to follow up on my 10 Random daily things.

Where were you in the Carolinas?

great idea - I bet not a lot of people really think about what they do any given day! I've learned something new about you too - I love Dark Shawdows. Which version did you watch? I actually have the Revival which I watched 2 episodes of last night :)

Hi Sherri,
Thanks for your comment on my Fairy Wren cross stitch. Have you tried Googling Zebra Finch cross stitch patterns? I did, and there are quite a few, but I wouldn't recommend any of the ones I saw, so I'll have a look through my Aussie cross stitch pattern books and if I find a nice chart, I'll leave another message here and we can sort something out ;-)

Hi again Sherri,
I have looked through my books and only found one pattern for zebra finches. If you like I can scan it and email it to you - let me know at my email address

Wow, I haven't watched Dark Shadows in many years. I used to love it
