One Lovely Blog Award

 One Lovely Blog award

Thank you Laura ( for honoring me with the One Lovely Blog award.  I appreciate that you keep coming back to visit my blog and I’m so glad it gives you an occasional chuckle.

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you (manners, people! manners!).
  2. Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” image to your post.
  3. Share 7 things about yourself.
  4. Pass the award on to seven nominees.
  5. Include this set of rules (important, otherwise confusion and mass hysteria ensues).
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.

The 7 things about me that are fit to share are:

1. I love animals, especially dogs, but remain frustrated because my mom won’t let me get one.

2. I have two children that I’m proud of and crazy about and three grandkids that I absolutely adore.

3. I’m a writer by compulsion, not training, which is strange since I’m a terrible speller and got C’s and D’s in English grammar back in the stone ages when I was in high school.

4. I’ve self-published a novel, three shorts (which are compilations of my blog postings – plus a few not fit to post).  I may not be able to find an agent or publisher, but I can leave this part of myself behind for my kids and grandkids.

5. I’ve written and illustrated two children’s’ books about a character I call “Norman the Magic Tree.” And one of my favorite days was when I was invited to read one of my “Norman” books aloud to my granddaughter’s third-grade class.

6. I blog to stay sane because becoming a parent to your parent isn’t easy and rarely fun.

7. Often, the best part of the day is when Bill and I have our pre-dinner adult beverage and sit and muse about good days past and good times yet to come.

I’m happy to nominate the following blogs for the “One Lovely Blog Award:”

Lesley Carter ( because she shares her travels and adventures through beautiful photos and prose and I can live vicariously through her. because he lifts me up with his positive attitude and joy of life.

Deborah ( because she is truly inspirational and is giving back with no expectations other than she knows it’s the right thing to do.

Seth ( because he manages to portray the ordinary as extraordinary. because she understands my life with Mom better than most and her words have helped and supported me when I didn’t think anyone really understood.

Richard ( because his eschewed view and dry humor crack me up.

And last, but definitely not least, Lily the Cat ( and her friend Deep Throat because they fight the good fight every day – and Lily makes me laugh.
