A kind thought from a friend!

For presenting me with an award...

I never win anything.  Well, I guess I shouldn't say "never."  I rarely win anything.

My blog friend Jo, at Stop...have a chat chose me for this award.  I encourage you to visit her site, especially on a wednesday as she does an Art post then.  I have learned so much from her and always enjoy my visits at her cheerful blog.

1. Link the person back who awarded you
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Answer the following questions below
4. Award this to 10 bloggers (it might be a few less than this!)

Seven things about myself:

  1. I love the clothing style of the thirties and forties.
  2. I cannot eat cheesecake or drink coffee.  Too Bad, they taste so good.
  3. I would love to visit China or Spain.
  4. I feel like I am "winging it" in every area of my life.  Thankful for the Lord who is called "Counselor."
  5. I love living in the Pacific Northwest, even with all the rain.  It is the most beautiful place on earth.
  6. I cannot multitask.
  7. But I am very organized.

Name your favorite color-

Red. But I do love looking at a sapphire blue ocean with sunshine diamonds dancing on it. That is the most beautiful color of all...makes me melt inside.

Name your favorite song-

How Great thou Art...almost any version.  I also like Fernando Ortega's version of Great is thy Faithfulness.

Name your favorite dessert-

Pecan pie.

What ticks you off-

I don't like this question. Sounds "out of control."  What makes me angry is blame shifting.  It is a great distress to me to find it in myself too.

When you’re upset you-

Seek the Lord, of course. Cry. Sigh. Call my best friend. Pray. Eat a piece of chocolate. Pray some more.

Your favorite pet-

Is there a pet that doesn't poop? I love birds. We have a pet chicken. I think parrots are awesome (but I don't like loud squawking) There is a parrot at the farm where we pick up our raw milk.  He always says "Thank you very much. Come again"

Black or white-

White. It is clean and neat and bright.

Your biggest fear-

Being deceived.

Best feature-

I don't know! I guess my smile, though I am pretty plain looking.  My smile is usually genuine though, and a genuine smile is a great feature on anybody.

Everyday attitude-

Trusting in the Lord. Everything in every day is ordained by Him.

What is perfection-

Jo said "Only God, only Jesus Christ, only the Holy Spirit", which I naturally agree with.  But in a worldly sense I would say, high quality beautiful stationery.  love it.

Guilty pleasure-

Sorry, but I don't like this phrase.  Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord and if it brings guilt...better not do it. 

I take pleasure in lying on the beach in the sun.  Oh what a pleasure it is (if it is not too hot. I love a cool breeze)

Some blogs that I enjoy visiting: (but may not accept awards)

Ruth at Daily Divine - if we ever meet in real life, I am sure that we will be able to talk for hours
Pleasant View School House - (eye candy and wonderful Etsy shop)
Think and thinkability - a new blog by a lovely lady
Wildflower Cottage - a simple, unassuming, honest woman who likes poetry (and a good friend).

I could list many many more.  I love blogging and have met so many wonderful people (all over the world) through this venue.


  1. I loved reading all these details about you! And then...I saw my blog listed. :O :) You're so sweet!

  2. Thank you for your lovely comments, you have made my day.

    The two hymns you selected are also my favorites, I love the old hymns, they are the ones I grew up and much prefer to the modern ones.

    Time for me to go to bed, getting late. So good night:)
    Have a blessed day.

  3. These are always fun to read, it makes me feel like I know you a bit better. :o)
