1 award, 5 blogs and 7 things


thank you Penny (The Linen Shelf)
for the award!
Penny has 2 blogs 
(you might know her Hen House blog from the Tuesday Tea parties)

I would like to pass this award on to these 5 beautiful blogs:






***

and now 7 things about myself that you might not know:

  • I have always driven a stick shift car (except for a mini-van I once had for a couple of years)
  • I'm addicted to puzzles (sudoku and crossword puzzles mostly)
  • When I have a newspaper I always read the obituaries (I read the news too)
  • I used to be a Republican (sorry)
  • I was badly bullied as a kid - but now all those bully kids like me for some reason (I help out at school with at-risk kids)
  • I have wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember (but also wanted to be a nurse because I knew I would need a "real" job to stay alive)
  • I can't stand Christmas (it's complicated)

Wow---more people that can't stand Christmas! I guess it's complicated for more of us than we know. Ditto on the artist thing too. I even went back to college at 52 and got my BA degree in ... ART! What to do with it though? Hmmmm....just to have the degree makes me so happy.

I read the obituries as I love some of the old names !
Sad to hear you were bullied - someone has confided in my son that he's being bullied so I have rung the school. I'm glad he told Joe & Joe told me.
I like Chrismas but can find it overwhelming & get low - like last Christmas.
