Happy Friday


I am back to share with you a little bit of
Friday Randomness.

But before I start I just wanted to say thanks so much
for so many kind and heartwarming comments on my last post.
This is such a wonderful community here in blogland
it makes my heart smile.




1. We sold our house… It took less than a week to sell.
They weren't lying when they said the market was hot right now.


2. We will be making the move into Big Bertha (our trailer)
in less than 3 weeks. Yikes. I didn’t expect it all to happen so soon!
But we are ready...   Bring it on...


3. You're wondering why we named our trailer Big Bertha?
Because I love the name Bertha.. It was my Grandmothers name.
BERTHA FAYE MAGEE.. 
 Who wouldn't love a name like that.
She was one of the feisiest redhead Irish ladies you would ever want to meet. 
 Boy do I miss her.  She knew how to spoil her grandchildren.


4.  You know your life must be a little bit boring when you can’t
even think of Five random things to write about.
I think that will all be changing very soon.


5. We are headed down to Arizona tomorrow to visit
Bertha Faye Magee’s daughter.. Yes I ‘m talking about my Mom.






What ever you are up to this weekend
I hope you enjoy it…

Hugs~

Glad your house sold so quickly - good news, but scary all the same! Good luck with the move to Big Bertha. If you are the granddaughter of a Bertha Faye Magee you will manage it all wonderfully! Hugs, Valerie

Wow, sounds like you are off and running. Looking forward to your posts from the road. Hubby and I are taking a trip in Oct. to his brother's in New Mexico. We are flying out and renting a van to drive home and see some of our great country and hunt for some cool stuff to sell on our Ebay site. I am looking forward to our trip. I will hopefully be able to blog from the road. I definitely want to do some plein air painting along the way. Blessings to you and yours.

Random fun times going on Linda! Have fun visiting your mom. Tell her i said hello, and Text me a photo if she's working on any new thread crochet projects.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Oh my goodness! That was a quick sell. It took ours 63 showings and 8 weeks. But that was in 2011-12. I guess the market has changed dramatically since then. Congratulations. :) Can't wait to hear more about your adventures. Btw, I named my latest camera Bertha. :)

Patti G said...

Okay, I believe it should be "Queen Bertha Fae Magee" - sounds so much more regal.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

What an exciting time in your life! You will have so many adventures on the road. I wish you the best as you transition to new things!

Bertha Faye Magee is one of the coolest names i've ever heard. No exaggeration.

The little bird in your first pic is a sweetie.

amanda said...

Congrats!
Love the spring photos! The flower at the end is beautiful, and I sure am missing the little birds who have not yet returned to our still frozen world.
Bertha Faye Magee is a great name.
Our dog's name is McGee.. We chose it for it's good character.
Our daughter (only daughter with four brothers) is named Lilly after my grandma's grandma, Lilly Mae Bowser. I love names!
Have a good trip to Arizona.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

You are just too funny, I can't stop laughing just reading your friday random. Hooray for the house, we just learn that our neighbor 2 doors away sold for 183, that is a 30K more than the price we bought! It is easy to sell when you are individual owner, Vegas is a strange market, so many empty houses but hard to buy one!
Have fun with Bertha Faye Magee's daughter! : )

Deanna said...

Oh congrats on selling your home so quickly. Your new journey is beginning quite soon and what an adventure it will be!! Love that sweet little bird!!

Joyce said...

Wow. Selling your house ! Goodness you really are about to start on an adventure and it sounds wonderful...gypsy Linda. Sorry to hear you had to leave your City Crafters group but I can't imagine carting around all your supplies, and besides you got places to go. Can't wait to share your travels with you, and I hope the next few weeks of packing up your house go smoothly. xx
