Tanya, thank you

I've had the honor of receiving two awards from my blogging friend Tanya Reimer  Tanya and I have followed each other almost from the beginning and I've learned a lot from her about how to work the blog (like add these pictures, and add links). So any versitility and sweetness comes from her.

One of the conditions of accepting this award is that I have to link back to her blog, which I've done. Another condition is that I reveal seven things about myself. So, here goes (I'll leave the good stuff for my memoirs):
1. I've been married thirty-seven years.
2. I'm a slow reader.
3. I love blogging.
4. I wonder if I'll ever get my writing published in the traditional way.
5. Less than a year ago, I didn't even know what a blog was.
6. I have a Kindle.
7. I have three wonderful daughters and three wonderful grandchildren.

The final condition is that I pass these awards along to five other bloggers: Elizabeth Varadan is an outstanding book reviewer and writer of her travels in Spain. Juliana L. Brandt has an interesting take on life. R. C. Lewis is a star in the universe. Jolene Perry is an up-and-coming YA writer. Ann Best is the best memoirest.

And there you have it--a list of sweet and versatile bloggers.

Ice. My fingers got all over the keys for that last part of my comment. I'm still getting used to working on the iPad keyboard. See? I meant ick. Not ice.
