How would other people describe you?
Many thanks to all who have commented on my posts, particularly the last post. You are all my cheeleaders and I really appreciate your support!
The lovely Miss Angie has given me the "Honest Scrap" award. Angie writes that this award is bestowed upon a blogger who often writes from his/her heart and soul. Thank you so much, Angie, for your kind view of my writing!
Terms of accepting this award are:
1: Upon acceptance of this award, the recipient agrees to list 10 honest and hopefully, interesting, facts about oneself. Recipient must also link back to the giver.
2: Recipient must also list 7 bloggers (with links) who they feel deserve the "Honest Scrap" award. [I will list some bloggers I appreciate, but I do not expect them to post unless they really, really want to.]
I don't really know if I can come up with that many interesting things, but I will play along as best I can.
1: I sing at church regularly as a cantor who leads the songs. I have also been asked to sing at baptisms, weddings and funerals.
2: I was once active in the local community theater and my greatest thrill was to play the lead role of Dolly in the musical "Hello Dolly." I believe that everyone deserves a standing ovation.
3: I love beautiful writing and look for opportunities to use my talents to calligraphy everything from invitations to diplomas. I also have a love of computer fonts and typography.
4: I collect quotes and dust. I invite you to send me your favorite (quote, not dust) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5: I live in Wisconsin, but I hate the winter weather and anything you might do in the snow. However, I love to watch it through my window and I have a small collection of snow people, particularly snow families with four figures.
6: I am a member of Tri Delta sorority at UW-Madison. People who knew me before college and people who know me now would never guess that I would be a sorority girl, proof that there is more to a sorority girl than meets the eye!
7: I am taking a pottery wheel class at Art Village with my 10 year old son. We are having a blast! I have also taken classes there in oil painting where I replicated a Van Gogh landscape.
8: I am so proud of my 7 year old daughter who is a gifted dancer particularly since I have two left feet.
9: I love to travel to new places, but I rarely have the opportunity. I would love to travel to Europe and Asia to immerse myself in the cultures there, like the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I dream of having a passport and filling it with travels.
10: I am married to my high school sweetheart. He swept me off my feet as a senior in high school and I cannot imagine my life without him in it. He is the best dad, the most loving husband and my best friend. He makes me want to be a better person.
I am not sure that I have the courage to find out exactly what others think about me, but I am encouraged by all the positive energy that has flowed my way since I began this little experiment. And the seven people who pour their hearts and souls out in their respective blogs listed below are truly honest and engaging people. I urge you to Check It Out::
Enjoy the day!
