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.

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