My First Blog Award!

Many thanks to Jamye at Fiction Fanatic for giving me this award! It’s the first I’ve received, and I’m excited to get it! When you receive this award, you need to list 10 honest things about yourself and then nominate 10 honest bloggers whose blog you follow.

Here are 10 honest things about me:

1. I am planning to retire in June from a job I’ve had – and loved – for 36 years. Scary and exciting!

2. I’m about to become a grandmother for the first time.

3. I’m afraid of heights and once had to be resuscitated after I passed out on the Palm Springs Tram.

4. The most exciting thing I’ve ever done is travel to China in 2008.

5. I was born on a Friday the 13th, and Friday the 13ths have always been lucky for me.

6. If I could only read one author for the rest of my life, it would probably be Alice Munro.

7. I met my husband at the first – and last – Mensa meeting either of us ever attended.

8. I named my last golden retriever Molson, my current one Nelson and, if I ever get another, it will be named Wilson.

9. I named my last border collie Sadie, my current one Josie, and, if I ever get another, it will be named Maizie.

10. My current goal is to write a short story that wins a “Glimmer Train” contest.

And my nominees are (these are all outstanding blogs – take a minute to check them out!):

A Girl Walks Into a Bookstore

J. Kaye’s Book Blog

  1. Wow, congrats on the upcoming retirement and becoming a grandmother! Very exciting!

    LOL, the Palm Springs tram is definitely shady. I feel your pain!

    The mensa comment made me think of the Simpsons episode when Lisa joins.

    Good stuff!

  2. Congratulations on your award! Your blogsite is awesome!
