One Lovely Blog Award
Many thanks to Dtills from “Invisible-No-More” for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Be sure to take a trip over to her place for gorgeous pictures, food, and inspiration.
Here are the rules for accepting this award:
1. Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog in their post.
2. They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
3. Must add 7 facts about themselves.
4. Nominate 15 people to do the award
I was really stumped to come up with 7 things about myself (part of my excuse for the delay in posting) so I decided to turn it into a list of my favorite things. Here we go.
My favorite weather is 73 degrees, blue skies, not too breezy, with plenty of puffy white clouds.When I think of favorite foods, apple pie à la mode quickly pops into mind even though I haven’t had a slice in quite some time. I usually eat pretty healthy, but today it seems I’m thinking about junk food. Some of my favorites:A few of my favorite recording artists from the old days are Van, Willie, Norah, and Neil. I enjoy all kinds of music from classical to contemporary.Since I’m looking back a few years, here are a few of my favorite classic novels: My favorite jobs, past and present, include working at a public library, a long ago job in publishing as a textbook art editor, and writing and illustrating stories for children. You’ll find a slaphappy librarian on the job, at right.
Thinking of my favorite animals usually brings to mind the same ones that sneak into my writing—marine animals—harbor seals, puffins, orcas, and then a moose or two thrown in for good measure.
I’ve saved the best for last. The most important aspects of my life always come down to family and friends.
And now for my nominees! I’ve seen the rules stated two different ways, sometimes nominating 10 people and sometimes 15, so I’m going with ten. There are so many wonderful blogs out there, but it’s not easy coming up with names I haven’t already nominated in the past, therefore some of these are rather new, to me.
As always, there is absolutely no pressure to play along, completely optional, just wanted to give a shoutout to your lovely blogs!
