Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Kreativ Blogger Award Xs Two

Brenda over at Hazel's Crock Pot Kitchen, has given me the Kreativ Blogger Award.

I'm honored and pleased, particularly as this is the second Kreativ Blogger Award I've gotten.

The first one looks like this and was given to me by Adrienne.
As with all things in the blog'o'sphere, there are rules.

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. Did that.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. Did that.

3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. Did that.

4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting. They are below if you're that curious.

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers. Hmmm, did that too.

6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate. Did that.

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, letting them know they have been nominated. Yep. now I have to write seven things about myself people might find interesting. Gosh, if you've been reading my blog you probably know enough already! But here it goes.
1. Due to circumstances beyond my control I graduated from high school late. I was a mere 12 days away from turning 20.

2. I have a pretty extensive record (we're talking vinyl ) collection. Over 500 records, mostly classic rock from the 60s and 70s, but also jazz and classical.
3. I don't listen to much of the music I have.

4. I really, really, really don't like shoes and go barefoot as often as I can.

5. I tat, which is an old form of lace-making. It's made with a shuttle and my fingers. It's really a bunch of knots, half-hitches, to be exact. It was most popular during the Victorian era.

6. I once sang in a jazz trio called Triad.

7. I've been camping, twice, at the Havasupai Indian Reservation (here there be pictures) at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The first time we flew in by helicopter. The second time we went in by mule and horse.

It was hard to pick just 7 people. But here they are:
MG at MG Higgins because she's new to blogging.

Tricia at Talespinning because I've just starting reading her blog and I like it a lot.

Mary at ResidentAlien because she's such a wonderful story teller with a great sense of humor.

Angela at Angela Cerrito because she likes to share experiences of people from all over the world.

Vijaya at Reading, Writing, Ruminating because she is my first and longest "Internet" friend who has consistently be supportive, helpful and kind. She has given me a good kick in the butt when I needed it too,

Anne at Anne Spollen's Author Blog because I really LOVED her book THE SHAPE OF WATER, and because she's been kind enough to leave comments on my blog!
And last but not least,

CJ over at Courting the Muse deserves it most of all because she is facing surgery to remove cancer and it's most important to pass on the love.


  1. Aw, Bish, you are a sweetie ... and I love reading your blog.

    Pretty please don't be mad if I don't play right now ... I realized I forgot something else too, oh yes, the seven deadly sins.

    Sending healing thoughts and prayers to CJ. I know people who've beat cancer! Go CJ!

  2. Congrats, Love learning more about you, Bish!
    My dad hikes the Grand Canyon every year and had one with a few overnights...I don't think he's done the reservation one, I'll tell him about that!

  3. Thank you, Bish! I'm honored that you like my blog. I'm so new to all this--only my second month of blogging--that I'm overwhelmed.
    I will put the award on my blog and answer the questions, but probably not for a day or two. Today and tomorrow are my two real-time critique groups and have some serious writing to do! Thanks again.

  4. AWWW! Bish, you are so very sweet! Love ya, girl! Thank you so much. I'm sorry I didn't get to the meme yet. Things have been a little bit hectic as of late. Had a great appt. with my oncologist today. I'll blog about it this evening.


  5. Thanks for the award, Bish -- and the kind words. I grew up barefoot too, and I resent having to wear shoes to work.

    I may be away for a bit as we're heading back to the U.K. for a few months.

  6. Yahoo! Thank you, thank you very much. And you're welcome very large.

  7. Thank you, Bish! Since I am new to blogging, this is a real treat. And thanks for being so supportive!
