A Lovely Award

I actually had a post already to go for today on different methods of building characters then I received this lovely award, which has a few rules attached so I'm going to save that other post for later and enjoy this award.

The rules for accepting this award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass the award on.

Well, that first one is easy.  A big thank you to my WOWA buddie, Stacy McKitrick at Stacy's Rantings and Whatnot .

Hmmm.  7 things about myself...

1 - I'm an ice cream addict.  Which may explain why I'm always trying to lose weight.

2 - My favorite breed of dog is the American Mixed (spelled M-U-T-T).  All my dogs have come from shelters or unwanted litters, except for the one who just showed up and moved in.

3 - I'm a Red Cross disaster volunteer.  I've worked ice storms, floods, tornados, hurricanes, and the World Trade Center site after 9/11.

4 - I'm very unconfortable in strange situations or in large groups where I don't know anyone...which makes item #3 a bit more difficult.

5 - My first car, shared with my older brother, was a convertible.  My current car is a convertible.  I call it my mid-life-crisis-mobile.  I love to ride with the top down.

6 - I am a passionate Boston Red Sox fan.  And I don't want to talk about our slow start this season.

7 - I have four grandkids who are all incredibly beautiful, intelligent, talented, and generally extraordinary.  I am grateful for this because it means I don't have to make up good stuff about them.

Now - to pass this award along.  I'd like to give this award to these lovely ladies:

Maria Zannini
Liz Fichera
Mary Vaughn at Giggles and Guns
Mason Canyon at Thoughts in Progress
and last but certainly not least, Dru Ann Love at Notes From Me

I'm currently enjoying: Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston

Groaner of the day: Yesterday I accidentally swallowed some food coloring. The doctor says I'm OK, but I feel like I've dyed a little inside.

Thanks for the award and love the groaner.

Liz Fichera said...

Thanks so much for the award, Linda!

By the way, I have the same love affair with ice cream. You are not alone. :-)

Yeah, that was a bit of a groaner,, but it made me chuckle a bit. Thanks.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Dru - You're welcome, and thanks. I thought it was a cute quickie.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Liz - You're welcome.

I wonder if there's a support group for ice cream addicts. (Yeah, we'd support each other all the way to the ice cream store.)

Linda Leszczuk said...

Stephen - Glad you liked it. Always want to give a chuckle.

Maria Zannini said...

Thanks for the award! I'll need to find a tiara for my blog now. ;-)

Ref: groaner
Well, there goes three seconds of my life I'll never get back. LOL!

Linda Leszczuk said...

Maria - Hey, that's not a bad trade. A nice award for three seconds. *grin*

Mason Canyon said...
