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.

SEVEN THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME

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.

MY SEVEN AWARD WINNERS

1. My friend and inspiration, Stephanie, at http://redclaydiaries.com/
2. Fellow writer, Trish, at http://healthywriter.blogspot.com/
3. Author Elaine (today is her birthday!) at http://thewriterscanvas.blogspot.com/
4. My brother, Eric, at http://ericasberry.com/
5. My high school friend, Debbie, at http://debrabecht.blogspot.com/
6. My NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison, Shawn, at http://shawnannmurray.com/
7. My mom, Carley, at http://carleyasberry.com/

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!
