100 Things

I don't usually do these things but discovered it on Sylvia's blog and became intrigued.

The instructions are to copy and paste the list in your own blog and color all of the things YOU have done (mine are in blue). Things you haven't done will be in black.

If you put this on your blog, let me know, so I can go read your list.

So glad you came to my blog and glad you liked the list -- I did, I know. It was great fun, I thought. It would seem that we have a lot in common -- well, except for the fact I'm ten years older than you. But that's okay, too, because I had so much fun getting here! Thanks for becoming a follower, I've added mine to yours! Have a great weekend!
