Lovely Blogs and Broken Rules

One Lovely Blog AwardJo at Jo on Food, My Travels and A Scent of Chocolate awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award which means that I have to a) thank her for the award and then b) follow the rules:

  1. Name the blogger who awarded you this fantastic award.
  2. List 7 random facts about yourself
  3. Award 15 other bloggers this award (Here's the deal, though, rules in my unlimited opinion are general guidelines. In the essence of time, I have awarded it to 5 other bloggers. I may get struck by lightening, but I doubt it will have anything to do with me bending a rule here and there.)
  4. Enjoy!
 Seven Random Facts About Me
 1) I have an unfinished novel in my beach bag. I'm carrying it around with me this summer. It's some kind of wishful thinking thing I've got going.
2) I enjoy a light breeze, but I detest wind.
3) Repetitive noises drive me over the wall, into the ditch and out of my mind.
4) Every time I finish writing something I panic that I will never think of anything creative ever again. And then I do.
5) I think I'm having a mid-life crisis. To add to that stress, I'm concerned that the two halves of my life aren't adding up to my ideal life expectancy.
6) A favorite way to treat myself is with smoked salmon, cream cheese and capers on crackers.
7) When I was in second grade, I was running across the playground one day at recess and I ran smack-dab into a bumblebee. It stung me. Maybe that's why I don't like surprises.

Congrats on the award. I enjoyed your grammar lessons a lot during the A to Z, but haven't taken the time to come back and visit. Good first day for it, so I could learn a few things about you.

Not a fan of the wind, are you?

i feel the same about my writing. What if i just wrote the last good thing? What if I never come up with anything again? I think writers are, at heart, insecure. The (self) pressure is constant. congrats on the award! You did a great job!

I'm stuck on #6. Sounds delicious!

Oh how sweet of you! I feel like I am having my own mid-life crisis myself so I haven't been blogging like I would like too! Love your list! So many remind me of me especially 2 and 3! We live in an area with not as many mature trees so the wind is horrible. I hate it and My kids think its funny that I hate repetitive noise and they don't stop!

I often read your blog but only seem to get the time to read it I vow to be a better blogger and commenter!

Have a great weekend!

Meg aka 1 Funky Woman
