I will make this my Thursday 13

My husband and I had the privilege of subbing in an early morning seminary (church) class for the past 8 week days. It was sooooo enjoyable! They were not excited to get their pic taken so early in the AM--so they all hid. But I am so impressed that they get up every day to arrive at church at 6:00 am .These posts fit together because I was doing the same thing 10 years ago too
And Robin tagged me with this:

When I saw that you said that you were doing this SAME thing 10 years ago and you had a picture of the seminary class on there... I quickly scrolled down to see if any from 10 years ago were on here... THANK you for not having them on here. But I was always the one under a blanket hiding from the camera.

Seems weird that it was 10 years ago. You were my absolute FAVORTIE seminary teacher... GO CRICKETS!

Sew quilts? Sounds like fun.

Great list.

My #74 is up. I did a variation on the iPod list. 13 Songs by the Mystery Artist. Can you guess who it is? Okay it really isn't that tough since I give you three video clues.

Ann Bruce said...

Okay, I actually got tired reading your list.

Yum--those look like my grandma's homemade crescent rolls! I haven't made those since Christmas. You've inspired me--maybe we'll have some with dinner tonight. :)

Mercedes said...

Great lists! I remember Seminary. I'm not a member now-but I was as a child. We have a lot of the same bad habits-lol. I love to organize too! Thanks for visiting mine
and your kind words for Patch!

Holly said...

Never been to seminary - or is that a seminary? I'm sorry, I don't really know what that is.

Wow, I need to think what I was doing 10 years ago.

Thank you for visiting my TT-13.
