An Award

Oh, my, I’m feeling very queasy.
Weronika, this is such a nice gesture…what was it my mother was always telling me..oh yes, “Just say thank you when someone offers a compliment—don’t try to convince them why you’re a big ninny and don’t deserve it.”
Soooo…Thank you.

The rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. Did that…
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. Okay, here it is...
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. I think that worked…
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting. Ugh…
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers. This is really hard because I don’t follow that many blogs.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. Okay...
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated. Whew, Done...
Here they are: well, 4 of them...
Laura's Simple Pleasures
A Walk In My Shoes (I know she’s already got one)
Weronika's Novel-in-Progress (I know this is re-gifting, and I hereby absolve you of any obligations stated herein.)
Elana Johnson, Author (I don't think she has this one…)

I know this is really cheating, but if I add any others, it would be disingenuous. These are the ones I have been following for a while; I enjoy their content and actually leave comments when I feel moved. I’m sure that in time, I will come to enjoy some of my recently added blogs, but I don’t want to come off sounding obsequious—so for now, I shall refrain.
Having said that, this is one blog I’m not nominating (‘cause he seems shy to me) but I’d like to drive some traffic his way: 275 Words
I'd nominate Rick Daley, but honestly, can you see this award on his blog?
I hope that taking liberties here doesn’t offend anyone…

Seven things about me…
I don’t have a lot on my profile, because I’m kind of a private person—and, it’s true, I hate the thought of boring people.
Nevertheless, I shall be daring:

1) This one’s easy, because there’s a link on my blog—I’m a watercolorist.
2) This one’s also easy because there’s an additional link on my blog—I’m a watercolorist who hasn’t finished a painting in over a year.
3) I’m relatively new to blogging. The first time I entered a comment on some forum, (back in March) I freaked out and couldn’t sleep until I deleted pretty much everything in my profile.
4) When people meet me for the first time, they think I’m gregarious and funny. They don’t realize that I simply get over-stimulated in social situations and then need a great big nap afterward.
5) My husband and I have moved quite a number of times. People think we have wanderlust or that we’re running away from something. The truth is, we’ve simply been left unsupervised for too long.
6) I had a nightmare once, where ‘They’ told my husband and I, “We’re sorry…It’s been brought to our attention that you have exceeded the ‘Lifetime Quota for Marital Bliss’. The two of you must separate immediately!” NOOOooooo!!!!
7) I used up all my best material writing this list.


  1. LOL! Thanks for the nomination. :)

  2. Bridget,
    Thank you so much! I'm so glad it got passed on to you. You deserve it! Take all the liberties you want. I recently learned that there are no blog police or bloggy jail, so I doubt you will be arrested. At least not for breaking the rules of the award. :) Congratulations!

  3. Thanks for the nod, Bridget! I really appreciate being included with such groovy bloggers. And I agree with Lazy Writer - you can't go to bloggy jail for bending the rules a bit. Of course, I'm new to this stuff, so what do I know?

  4. Thanks for the shout, JB. Me, shy? Back in the day, perhaps. I'm actually a bit of a flirt. I have to watch myself, otherwise my wife will kick my you know what!

  5. Scott,
    I guess I'm not so good at reading people as I am at writing them.

  6. Scott,
    I came up with a reason why I think you’re shy.
    I know from reading your blog that I’m on your list of blogs that you follow, but I don’t see your face on my follower’s list. Surely, you can see how I might draw the ‘he must be shy’ conclusion.
