More Awards

I would like to thank Biltrix for 2 wonderful awards, one given to me this past week, the other a while ago, back in the days when I did not know how to copy&transfer the graphics or what to do about it all.  I appreciate both of these nominations.

I have so much respect for the thoughtful wisdom in your posts, Biltrix, and count you among my very favorite blogsites.  http://biltrix.wordpress.com

I do not know that many bloggers, certainly not 15 more, but I would like to nominate in turn, two special blogs to receive both of these awards.  I have no idea if either of them have received these awards in the past, I didn’t actually check . . .  These bloggers have inspired me greatly in the past, unbeknownst to them.  I found them online long ago, by pure serendipity, and did not know how to “follow” or comment at that time, but read them each very often. I copied their URL down on paper, and typed in the address each time . . .  (I have since found easier ways to do this, and am still learning.)

The first was once called Word Incarnate, and is now titled  “Making All Things New”. http://wordincarnate.wordpress.com   It was the very first blog I ever found, and it inspired and guided me.

The second one is Fr. Ted’s Blog. http://frted.wordpress.com  I love the beautiful images, both photographic images and icons, and the beautiful words and thoughts I read here.

I’ll share 7 things about myself:

1) I am not technologically savvy.

2) I have 2 middle-aged, grumpy, adorable rescue dogs, who had a great time at the coast with us on Saturday.  I really like dogs.

3) I am irrationally and completely terrified of grasshoppers.

4) I began taking art lessons in oil painting when I was 8 years old.

5) I moved 900 miles away from my family of origin 21 years ago, and miss them all a lot, especially on birthdays and holidays. We write and call each other a lot.

6) I belong to two reading groups. One focusses on novels, the other on spiritual reading.

7) When I get old(er) and retire, I want to take advantage of the Forever Learner Program at the local university.  I’d like to get a B.S. degree in Geology. I love rocks.

Thank you again to Biltrix, and to all who read, follow, comment on, and have liked my blog. I treasure each and every one of you.  God bless.

      You are a tougher soul than I am, that is for sure. I would have run down the block screaming and flailing my arms in case it attacked. You cannot believe how much I hate those things. Give me snakes any day!!

      • SR says:

        Okay, that is a trade. I will give you the snakes as I have seen plenty of them this summer. Right now the grasshoppers are all over the place. They usually are this time of the year. Take care and God Bless, SR
