Inspiring Blogger Post

Marsha West graciously passed on the Inspiring Blogger Award to me. I am very honored.

Inspiring Blogger AwardShe said all I have to do is tell you seven random things about me and pass the award on to two other bloggers. Thinking of seven random things is always harder than I think it should be. Since I’m *super* interesting I should be able to come up with things at the drop of a hat. Well, these took me two days. Hmm.

Since you are dying to read them after all that, here they are:

1. I have two dogs, one that could find his way home from Florida (I’m in Michigan); and one that can’t find his way home from across the street.

2. My daughter’s favorite outdoor activity is digging for worms in the driveway. I do not agree with how cute she thinks earthworms are.

3. I get the most writing done at the picnic table when the kids are playing in the sandbox.

4. I don’t mind doing laundry on laundry days. (Yes, I have a laundry schedule.) I despise loads that require washing on non-laundry days and folding socks.

5. I love thrift store shopping and garage sale-ing. You never know what you are going to find.

6. My favorite flowers are rhododendrons, but they don’t seem to do very well in my yard.

7. I enjoy upcycling and finding new uses for old things.

I’m passing this award on to Patricia Kiyono ( and Elaine Cantrell ( Check out their blogs for some great books and fun ideas.



  1. Congrats! I love reading your blog too!


    1. Thanks, T!


  2. I so agree with you about the worms and the socks, Lynn. MY older daughter could put a worm on a hook without batting an eye. Now her son is enamored with rolly pollies (sp?) . I swear the socks go mate with something odd in the wash and then don’t come out with their supposed to be partners. Makes me nuts! I hope your pups are young and you get to enjoy them for many years. :LOL I don’t think I know what Rhododendrons look like. They sound like a substantial flower. 🙂 Enjoyed reading these.
