At the end of The Week That is Best Forgotten, Laure at the Painted Thoughts blog sent me an award:
I’m still new enough to blogging to really appreciate these awards, and get a kick out of answering the questions that go along with them. For this one, I’m supposed to tell you 10 things about myself. You already know of my horse addiction and several of the various other pastimes I enjoy, so here are 10 random facts you probably don’t know:
I worked on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem when I was in college.
I’ve been quoted in two books.
I do a crossword puzzle every day, in an attempt to keep my brain cells snapping and popping.
I sing along with the radio in my car. Loudly.
I’m allergic to kiwi fruit.
I was born and raised in California, and still miss the wonderful climate.
My husband and I have been married for 22 years, despite having worked together in the same office twice and currently working out of a shared home office.
I’m totally addicted to a game on my computer called “Mahjong Titans.”
My great grandmother was full Cherokee Indian.
My favorite flavor of ice cream is mint chocolate chip.
More important than the random facts, I get to share some blogs I enjoy. I hope you will like them, too.
The Enchanted Earth. I keep passing these awards on to Meredith because her blog is utterly delightful. She takes beautiful photos and writes uplifting and creative posts. One of my recent favorites was “Star Stuff.” Check it out.
A Nature Art Journal. Elizabeth’s nature journal pages are wonderful, and I’m inspired by looking at them.
Hope in Every Day. Krista’s blog title says it all.
Walking Nature Home. Susan is a writer, her husband is a sculptor, and he is fighting brain cancer. Her writing is lovely and positive, even in the face of her husband’s illness.
Thank you to Laure for giving me one more reason to smile last week, and to all of you for your kind and encouraging comments.
Edited to add: One more great blog to visit: Blueberries, Art and Life. Teresa's thoughts on art and life--and she's already won this award once before!
