Lucky Seven!

What an thrill to receive the above award from fellow writer/blogger Carol Burnside today! Here in the dead of winter, on the heels of our magnificent snowstorm, these colorful flowers were a welcome sight. Thank you, Carol!

This award came with strings attached, however. First, I must tell you seven things about myself; then, I must extend the award to seven others. Here goes.


1. I was born in Missouri but went to high school in Illinois, so I consider Mt. Carmel, Illinois to be my hometown. (Go, Aces!)
2. My favorite colors are pink and purple.
3. I am a "cat person" but my son, Casey, is allergic to cats so I have a dog instead. I love my dog.
4. I hate winter and dream of living on a sunny beach someday. Maui, anyone?
5. Occasionally, I fantasize about being a biker chick with spiky black hair, tattoos and leather boots, but my hairdresser, Jody, says no.
6. I once attempted to defend a very special cedar tree from a charging white charolais bull. (I still don't understand why the bull was so mad at the tree.) My dad stopped me, which explains why I am still alive today.
7. I cannot listen to Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" without weeping.


1. My friend and inspiration, Stephanie, at
2. Fellow writer, Trish, at
3. Author Elaine (today is her birthday!) at
4. My brother, Eric, at
5. My high school friend, Debbie, at
6. My NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison, Shawn, at
7. My mom, Carley, at

I'm hoping that this will inspire some of you who haven't posted for a while! :-)

Thanks for the award, Pam, I was quite surprised as I can't remember earning a reward lately. :-) I love you & feel that you are a reward to me from God. Children are only temporary loans as I well know, but I am so thankful that God has let me keep you & Eric. You both make me proud to say I am your mother. I love reading your blogs & feel guilty that I've not made an entry in mine for sometime. Maybe I will later today. :-)

Interesting facts.

LOL on 5
Why? on 6
7: Hey, I knew you'd work music in there somewhere. :)

Mom, if you post on your blog, make sure you claim your award, and tell us seven things about yourself! I am looking forward to it! :-)

Carol, do you mean why was I defending the tree? Or why did my dad stop me? Just kidding; I hope I already know the answer. I will tell the story in a future blog post. But it was a Very Special Tree.

Thank you so much for the award. I'm very tardy in accepting. I will have to post my 7 things soon! Have to give it some thought as I am such an open book it is difficult to think of 7 things that everyone does not already know about me. Feel better pretty lady!

I can't wait to see that next blog post! I am so happy to be back in touch with you! :-)
