I’ve been nominated for the Dragon’s Loyalty award by SirenSong. Normally I am not an awards person – because I’m far too scattered to sit for long – but I am always honoured to be nominated and truly appreciate when someone thinks of me.
If you don’t already know Siren, you should take a moment to read and follow her blog. Her generous nomination gives me a chance to say how much I love her writing style and her deft touch with descriptions of love and relationships.
The rules are:
•Display the award on your blog
•Announce your win with a post and link the blogger who nominated you
•Present six deserving bloggers with the award
•Link your awardees in the post
•Write seven interesting things about you
Seven possibly, marginally interesting things about me:
I have a very green thumb. Both indoor and outdoor plants seem to like me and my current obsessions are indoor: orchids and garden: coral bells.
I’ve been writing since a very early age. At around age seven or eight, I would write and illustrate faerytales and fold and staple them into books for my – complete with checkout slips – library.
I’m a little vain about my feet (!) My ballet mistress once told me that I had a pointe like Pavlova’s and it’s still one of the best compliments I ever received.
I’m not joking about the ADD and OCD. My pantry cupboards have had the exact same arrangement in each place I’ve lived since leaving my parent’s home and I can only accomplish all the day’s tasks by using a “Circuit Training” method. I see this more as super-power than detriment 🙂
You haven’t lived until you’ve tasted my homemade cannelloni, pea soup à la maison or chicken cordon bleu.
I love to create things and am never not designing and / or working on one project or another. Fibre and needle arts are my favourite but I like to paint too. I take my needles everywhere and never have ‘wasted’ time. Doctor running late? That’s three more rows!
I may be the only woman in the world who doesn’t fancy chocolate (!) I don’t dislike it but would much rather have toffee, butter fudge, caramel or whipped cream.
Now for the Nominees:
Rita, Unshielded Heart: My day is often brightened by one or more of Rita’s posts. She’s a warm, caring person; generous with her time and talent. Not to mention her great music posts. Well worth a visit
Joseph, Seeing The Whisper: I never know what to expect from Joe’s poetry and prose when I click on the email link. Romantic, playful, erotic and insightful, his words always make an impact upon me. Not to mention he is a friend, who shares my green thumb and spiritual views and is a wonderful support in this online circus.
Mike, MikeSteeden: I discovered Mike’s blog not too long ago and am smitten with his offerings. Witty, percipient, thought-provoking and off-the-wall. There is something for everyone here and it almost always comes with a side of laughter. Check him out…you will not be sorry!
Daniel, Dusk and Resurrection: Daniel’s stories are insightful, often haunting in their poignancy. He has a deft touch conveying vivid pictures of love, faith and relationships. You’ll enjoy his perspective.
Chris, TheMuscleHeadedBlog: Chris is one of the first blogs I followed and my day isn’t complete without his humorous, entertaining and highly educational posts and their side of tongue-in-cheek. Chris also regularly posts music on Sundays that is not to be missed.
Kim, LetMeReach: What can I say about Kim that I haven’t already? She’s knowledgeable, kind, accessible and shares invaluable information with those of us who’ve been wounded by narcissist predators and their ilk. Kim helped me find my way back from the brink and I continue to read and share her fact-based, whole-person approach to healing and recovery. Not just a great blogger but for me, a true friend. Check her out.
Thanks again to Siren for the nomination. Thanks too, to all of you who’ve hung in here with me, not just through this post but through all the rest. It means more than you know.
