The Rose

You could call me a night person.  My kids are grown, hubby is a shift worker and on the days he's working, he's gone about 14 hours.  I can do pretty much what I want, when I want to do it.  I log on to the computer when I get up and stay on it until I go to bed.  (except when I have to share with hubs)


I don't stay in front of the computer ALL day long, rather just walk in here, hit refresh and check to see if I have mail, or if someone has posted something new.


Imagine my surprise, when I came in the other morning around 4:30 and saw an email from a fellow blogger, left at 4:23.  I was shocked!  The subject said: Rose Header For Blog.  I opened the email and found the sweetest message.  She said she had seen a really pretty rose that morning and thought of me.  So she made my new rose header.  (and I was actually able to get it on here)  Thank you so much for thinking of me Karen @ This Old House.  It's people like you that make blogging worthwhile, and not just because you made my new header, but because you are a really nice person, even when you keep me in the sinnin' corner.  Because everyone knows... envy is a sin and that house keeps me green with envy!

I'll be that was a very nice experience, especially at 0-dark-30 in the morning!

Deborah said...

That is gorgeous! That Karen is such a sweetie isn't she?

I am green about her house as well. Damn that girl!

I am a total night owl, especially since the layoff...

I love the header. How very sweet. I will have to visit her blog.

What a nice gesture and a beautiful header too!

I'm jealous of all that free time of yours. I've been thinking lately about how nice bloggers are to each other. Do you think bloggers are really this nice in person? I mean I wonder if I am nicer on the blogs than I actually am in real life...Anyway, blog friends are some of the best friends- far as I can tell. I agree.

Nice post and a really nice new rose!!!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Thanks EVERYONE!

2Thinks, I don't think all bloggers are nice, and I've seen the effects some of the meaner ones have had on people, but the ones who are make it so very special. Appreciate you stopping by. (Having free time isn't all it's cracked up to be)

Boy, when I saw the title of your blog, I just had to come see what it was all about. Keep up the sarcasm Granny. The world needs more of it.

I'd say I like the blog header (it is nice), but I think I would catch grief from my more manly friends.

Ms. Anthropy said...

Cheeseboy, Your secret is safe here. Thanks for stopping by.

Marla said...

It's awesome. Aren't friends the best?

Ms. Anthropy said...

Marla, There really are some wonderful people out there.

KrippledWarrior said...

I love you, the rose, Karen and 2thinks. And cheeseboy ain't got no more manly friends than me.

Ms. Anthropy said...

I Love you too KW! Karen made me cry with the rose. Nice to be able to cry for a good reason. She's a real sweetheart... like you.

Blogabber said...

It's a beautiful rose as I am sure you are also.
Thanks for everything.

Aw... that was sweet!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Wray, There is nothing beautiful about me, but I am darn nice.(and sarcastic) The rose, on the other hand... is beautiful.

Kristy, I'll say it was!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Wow - that was really sweet of her!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Girl, She is awesome! (Like you)

Copyboy said...

See that's what blogging is all about. Connecting. Glad you were able to experience such kindness. : )

Ms. Anthropy said...

Copyboy, It's that kind of connection that keeps me hanging in here, or I would have already given up. Just had a blog buddy give it up over bad connections. I know how it feels. It's the good ones that make it all worthwhile!

Jenny said...

Of course she was sweet to you...you're sweet to everyone! What goes around, comes around!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Thanks Jenny!
