The Name Game: Random or "di"

I don't know what it is like where you are, but here in the Central Valley of California, it's supposed to hit 113 degrees today! So stay cool by reading about Di, here from Random or "di".

How did you choose the name for your blog?

I started my blog as a way for our children to follow us on our vacation through Brittany in 2010. It was originally named "On Vacation with Doc and di". 
When we returned from vacation my sister told me I should start writing about my quilts.
 (I want to copy this quilt)
I wanted to write about more than quilts, like family, travel, cooking and canning and gardening, so Random popped into my mind. 
 I changed the name to Random Thoughts do or "di" because I have always wanted to use my nickname in a business venture. My dream business would be a dessert business called "Desserts to di for"
 (are you hungry yet?)
Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?
No, after the original name change nothing else seems right.
(pattern here)
Now that you are recognized by Random or "di," are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
I often wish I had a more creative name for my blog but after nearly three years I don't want to change it. I also like that people know my name  is "di" from my blog.
Thanks for playing along this week. With such a great blog name, you definitely should also link up to Really Random Thursday as well!
