A Sweet Award From A Friend...

How exciting! I received an award from my friend, Mary Wadsworth of Blooming Ideas blog. It's always gratifying to be recognized by another blogger, and I'm grateful to Mary for thinking of me.
In the spirit of the award, I need to tell seven things about myself (I'll try to think of a few things you may not already know about me), and name seven blog sisters to receive the award from me.

Hmmm, let's see...
  1. I love caffeine and chocolate. Two of the Four Basic Food Groups. I think the other two are chips and dip. I guess I've got 'em all covered!
  2. I love to cook for groups. Not too large, but Thanksgiving and Christmas are always fun if there's family around to feed.
  3. I have a serious B.S. gene. Handsome keeps me in check most times - with the use of his personally patented "Fraud Monitor", but some days are really hard.
  4. These are my favorite books: Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand; The Life of Pi by Yan Martel; My Side Of The Mountain by Jean Craighead George; Is She Coming Too? by Frances Hammerstrom and I've read all of the Harry Potter books. When a new one comes out, I read it start to finish, usually in about 11 hours.
  5. I love kitchen gadgets. (See #2) And my favorite gadget is a specific egg timer, the Eggsact Egg Timer. It's fabulous, and anyone who boils eggs should own one.
  6. I took seven years of piano lessons when I was a kid...and can't read music well enough to sit down and play. Dirty, rotten shame, I think. My parents and I were robbed.
  7. I can drive a stick shift (manual transmission) car. I'd love to own a vintage Jaguar in a dreamy sky blue with a white leather interior (sigh).
Here are my choices of bloggers to receive the Kreativ Blog award. They are inspirational bloggers who I visit every time they update their blogs with new posts. I love them all!
  1. Christine Edwards of A Work In Progress
  2. Ruth Harsham of The Beautiful Life
  3. Texas Brenda of Cozy Little House
  4. Drucilla's Mom, Missie of Crafting With Cat Hair
  5. Missouri Debra of Common Ground
  6. Texas Cathy of Mille Fleur
  7. Texas Barbara of Purple Goat Lady
and I want to recognize Michelle May (Shell), my friend in New Bern, NC. I love, love, love her blog and her beautiful bunnies, Razzie and Sugar, featured in her blog Tales From The Raspberry Rabbits. I'm glad that Mary Wadsworth already chose her for the Kreativ Blogger Award, because I absolutely agree with her!

All of the women I've mentioned above keep me inspired, amused and enthused as I go about my joyful life. Thank you for being among my blogging friends. I love you all! Please take a few minutes to visit each of their blogs today. Really, they're wonderful!

Thanks again to Mary for thinking of me. You're too kind.

Hey Donna, thanks so much! I just love hearing about you. This is such a wonderful way to "get to know" everyone out there in the blog world! Thanks for coming by.

Hi Donna,

Thanks for stopping by & updating the give-away link.... I actually had a nice chance to really visit your blog ~ Love It.... Love the Dogs! I think You & I both like the same 2 out of 4 food groups, but My Caffeine is Coca Cola (I Hate Coffee) I also loved your clock link, so I installed one on my blog, it will be easy to know when it is midnight & the next give-away stops & another starts..... Good Luck to You in this new drawing!
