A Lovely Blog Award

Posted in:

So I had a pleasant surprise yesterday when I got a comment yesterday informing me of this award. I actually thought the blog awards season for the beginning of the year was over, but Zan Marie of In the Shade of the Cherry Tree showed otherwise.

Now I have to think very hard so as not to repeat any of the things I might have previously shared about me. Here we go...

- I am nudging the upper limits of the BMI range that is supposed to be best for people of my smallie height.

- We did not have any pets growing up (well, except the odd goat or chicken meant for Christmas or Easter) so I'm not too comfortable living with animals.

- I sometimes joke that I'm so laid back I'm lying flat but I can be very driven too, especially when it comes to time-bound projects.

- I love blogville and the community it has provided.

- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte was one of the first romance novels I read and started my love affair with the genre.

- I love animated features, have I said this before?

- I think this one may be cheating for those who've read my About Myne tab up there. I love thrill rides and Atala still can't believe I did a reverse bungee.

The other requirements that go along with the awards are to;

3. Pass the awards along to as many as fifteen blogs you have found recently - SEE BELOW
4. Notify the bloggers of their awards - ON MY WAY

  7. Myne ~ Thank you so much ~ I am grateful to receive the award and more grateful to meet you ~ You sound like a wonderful write with lots to write about ~ My son, Sean was in Uganda last year for a year helping the people to assess their resources and how they can capitalize on those and become more self sufficient ~ He is a gem and enjoyed the year ~ He was liaison for the US Naval Ambassador and the Ugandan Leader ~ so it was a good experience for him and a very different image of the US Navy /military ~ so I have an attraction for Africa ~ ~ Mainly wanted to connect and glad to know where the blog award came from ~ hugs and namaste, Carol ~ artmusedog ^_^
