My very first blogging award!!!


Ok, I’m simply all aflutter. Seriously! I do this blog because its so much fun and I’ve learned so much from reading others blogs. While I write for my own amusement and to have a textual/pictoralย  “diary” of my life, it has meant so much to me to find out that others actually read what I wrote and LIKED it. So many times, just when I think nothing I have to say could possibly matter to anyone, I get the nicest comments and encouragement.

One of those who always has an encouraging word and a listening ear is Bridgett from Ramblings of an Uncluttered Mind . From helping me with my knitting oopsies, to tossing in a suggestion on a project, to helping me figure out FB (winks) she has been a good friend and someone I’m thrilled to have gotten to know. Thanks Bridgett!

Now.. 7 things to know about me…

1. I’d never so much as looked at a blog until 2 years ago and could not for the life of me figure out why anyone would want to. (now I’m totally hooked!)

2. I know how to play, and read for, 13 musical instruments.

3. I had a chance to study in England with a composer friend of my music professor. I wanted to be a conductor and was studying theory and composition.

4. The worst job I ever had was as a blueberry picker. ALLLL day in the hot sun to end up with enough money to buy my cigarettes for the week. (back when they were $.75 in the machine and $.55 at the store)

5. I didn’t have a girly girl bone in my body until I hit menopause. Now it’s just disgusting. ๐Ÿ˜‰

6. I can hawk a lugey with the best of them. I get both loft and distance. ๐Ÿ™‚

7. When I was a little girl (5 or 6 years old) I got chased by a goose that was taller than I was and bit on the butt. I haven’t liked or trusted geese since.
