First Award!

Mary Anne at Starlight Blog gifted me this award way back in October of 2009. I didn't quite understand at the time and therefore didn't do anything with it. My apologies, because I did indeed appreciate receiving it; but didn't know it's meaning or the rules that were attached at the time. Found it a few days ago (this is a scheduled post); and wanted to post it.

In her post, Mary Anne indicates the award is for someone who writes from the heart. That's easy for me to do because you ALL inspire me in many ways. When you hear people say things are bad, people don't care, watch the news and see lots of negative things...YOU ALL prove to me each and everyday people are good, people are kind, and people do care! So please enjoy this award with me, as it's certainly a joint effort.

The rules say I'm to pay the award onto 7 bloggers who write from the heart, and list 10 honest things about me.

  1. I would rather blog then clean house
  2. I would rather watch a movie at home on TV then go out to the movies
  3. I love wine
  4. I'm not a morning person and like to sleep in and wake up slowly
  5. I like learning new things, but really didn't like school after junior high
  6. I'm not very impressed with fame, money, and material things
  7. I love walking through cemeteries, enjoy photographing gravestones; particularly old ones
  8. I'm not very adventurous with eating, no desire to eat things that Anthony Bourdain does on his show
  9. I don't like any reality TV shows
  10. I think I'm a good cook
Now, whom to pass this award onto? I don't believe I can pick among you team members and so will pass the award on, outside our circle of special knitters and crocheters to bloggers who blog from the heart. Gives us all a chance to see and read about non yarn things this way too.
  1. Positive Men, an interesting blogger with stories that you feel in your gut.
  2. The Way I See It, a blog about everyday life globally, very insightful
  3. Mind Your Own Business, a blog about family life
  4. EX Great Life, pick a topic...it's always something different to read about
  5. Comedy Plus, you just never know what you might read about
  6. A Second Cup, fun look at life as we age
  7. Serian Man A blogger who loves to write, he writes about love and life

    Have a terrific day. :)

  3. Congrats on your award. How bout I come to dinner to see if you are a good cook?


  4. I'm reading your 10 things and I agree, blogging before house cleaning! LOL I would also rather watch DVDS than go out and hate reality shows in general. I am definitely not an adventurous eater. I am very picky. My husband wishes I was a good cook, but no matter as HE IS. :-)

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
