I've Been Awarded!

Judy of Judith B Designs has given the Premio Meme Award to my blog. I am truly honored and thank her very much for thinking of me. 

The rules are that I must tell 7 facts about myself and I am to give this award to 7 people.

So here goes, more about me. : )

1.  I cannot handle hot, humid weather. It literally makes me sick, so the past few days have been a real trial of perseverance. 

2.  I like biscuits and gravy. I always order this at the local cafe on the rare occasions I go out for breakfast. It's a good thing this is not often, since it's really not so healthy!

3.  I have become a person who worries. I never used to worry about things, but now I do. I don't know if this is a sign of maturity or a sign of the times.

4.  Some mornings I would like to be able to sleep as long as I desire. I'm sure I would still get up early, but it would be my choice.

5.  I can be sarcastic, blunt and unrelenting.

6.  I put less than 2000 miles a year on my Jeep. 

7.  I'm considering having my hair cut very short and letting it be gray again. I'm still in the considering stage.

Now, drum roll please............the 7 who I am passing this award onto.

I would have handed it over to Alicia at  Blogger (Blogspot) - boylerpf, but Judy gave it to her already!

Please give these blogs a look, they are all different in style and substance and worthy of spending a little time on.


  1. Thanks Sandra! I'm honored to be listed among these other fabulous blogs!


    That is wonderful!

    Congratulations on the rain reprieve today! We needed it!

  3. Wow! is all I can say...oh, & ta, of course. Thank you. It really is an honour 'cause some of those blogs really are famouse.

  4. Ganeida you are famous in my world!

    J, I must come clean about miles. I also drive the dually (need to run the engine sometimes) and occasionally ride in Mark's car. So I do get out a little more than it seems. : ) Although I live in the country, it's not the sticks. Three towns are within 2 - 8 miles from home.

  5. Oh well then. What more can I ask?! Will be later today before I can post again. End of term & neither Ditz nor I are terribly motivated. *sigh* I hate having to round a heap of stuff up & stick stupid labels on it!

  6. Try the short hair...it can always grow back and add more pillows you will sleep better....LOL!

  7. I am ROFLOL at your #5...Sarcastic, blunt and unrelenting. Now that is something that doesn't come out in your blog!
    Now short and gray? Fabulous! I keep saying I'm going to shave it all off for the summer and to heck with it. Problem is, unless you do a buzz cut with your horse sheers, you have to visit the hairdresser often and at 2000 miles a year on a jeep...you'd be adding too many miles!
    Thanks for the shout..you are the BEST!

  8. I've had a buzz cut, in the 80's. My poor son barely survived me.

    I was gray for 3 years & got talked into color again. I don't know...

    Not too many miles on the Jeep. The town I use the most is 6 miles from my door & I buy groceries, wine, clothes, flowers and get my hair cut there. So it doesn't add any miles!

    There are some people who comment here, on occasion, who know me. I am sarcastic, blunt & unrelenting, at times. I am also tepid and disinterested. And sometimes I am intellectual and kind. Don't let the latter get out, we don't want anyone to know!

    Four pillows would ruin my already shaky neck. How do you do it Judy?

  9. Oh la la an award. It so exciting reading down and to see my name listed. Thanks so much. I will play later this week. It’ll take me that long to think of 7 things about myself.

    I totally relate to the statment about worring

    PS: If I wanted to live in the tropics that’s where I’d be. Is so funny and show your sarcastic side…yes?

  10. Sandra, thank you! It is so nice to get an Award. So.. I need to tell the world about me? 7 Things? I can do that! It will be the stopping at 7 that will be the problem! LOL Have a great day !

  11. Oh by the way if you cut your hair short and decide you don't like it grey, easy enough to fix then.With the work you do I can imagine short hair would be a treat!

  12. I look forward to the reading the results on all of your blogs.

  13. alright I am finally making it over here... 7 things about me. ok... I like to nap and that is where I am going first!

    then I will turn the brain on - and work on this.... after some coffeeeeee


    thanks a ton. Glad I haven't been around to read all of this because that means the sun has been shining!

  14. Take a nap, enjoy the brief summer. It's too hot for me, but lots of people like it. I'm not one of them.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
