The Combo

Recently, my blogging friend, MJ, wrote a post entitled “The Spark“. It was based on an article she read in Oprah magazine. In it, four contributors to the magazine were asked the same seven questions.

I decided that I would play along with this little exercise and had drafted a post about it.

In the meantime, another blogging friend, Kate over at Believe Anyway, graciously presented me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

And, just as a coincidence: accepting the award requires revealing seven things about myself. How perfect. So here’s my “Spark/Very Inspiring Blogger” combo:

I’m most creative … when I’m blogging.

If I were a color, I’d be … a shade of blue.

I often imagine myself … younger.

I really wish I knew how to … dance. (But I’m probably too inhibited to actually do it..!)

I’d love to spend a lazy Sunday … riding out in the country with Motor Man. Or staying at home with him and watching a race.

I’m most excited about …  springtime, warm weather, flip flops, digging in the dirt….

My secret talent is … finding typos and misspelled words. (Although Marshall caught a misspelled word on my blog once – SO embarrassing!) 

Now I’m to pass this award along to some other folks. And, of course, it isn’t REQUIRED, but maybe they would elect to answer the same seven questions and create their own combo. Choosing recipients is always the most difficult part of blog awards. But here are my nominees:

Sammy & Pam at One Spoiled Cat

Linda at The Road Awaits

Debbie at It’s All About Purple

Marilyn at Emjay And Them

Renee at Writing Feemail

Georgette Sullins

Mama’s Empty Nest

I can’t wait to see their “combo” posts.

If you aren’t familiar with these bloggers, please pay them a little visit. And tell ’em I sent you.

  1. Awwww….gosh…..thanks Miss Dianna for nominating me to receive the award – Mom and I are very excited about that and will get to work right away with our “seven things” !!!! I especially like your answer to “Most Excited About” when you say you like to dig in the dirt. Guess what?! I like digging in the dirt too!

    Congratulations on your award and thanks for ours…..
    Sammy

  2. Congratulations! You are always so gracious about sharing the love, thank you. I am behind and still need to post about other awards you gave me recently so I guess I’ll have a super deluxe combo 🙂

    Have a wonderful day– in flip flops and outside!
    MJ

  3. Thanks so much for the award, Dianna! You know you are my inspiration anyway…we share at least one of those “things” – I love digging in the dirt too!

  4. I can vouch for the facts that you are a wonderful proof-reader!

    (I left the mistakes just for you!)

  5. Such a deserving award. As I rode up to Dallas with my mother…5 hour trip for us…others do it in less time, I told her about my blogging friend who finds inspiration everywhere. Were your ears burning? Thank you for this. I will pass this forward after March…one more Mom post and then Andy’s adventures.

  6. Congratulations Dianna! I love Q&As. We learn so much about the people we read 🙂 Congrats to the others too! I imagine myself younger too. A whole lot. Not that I’m not happy where I am. 😉

  7. I love learning new little tidbits about you, Dianna! So fun to read. We have some more things in common. And it’s true, you ARE a ‘very inspiring blogger’ so you most assuredly deserve this award. Thanks for always encouraging us and also for naming me for the award. I count it an honor.

  8. Congrats on your newest award! Certainly a day for flip flops and dirt !! Now .. to check out some others ! ….

  9. with your love of water, i could definitely see you has a shade of blue. 🙂

    and speaking of dirt, that ol’ moss is coming up wonderfully here!!! SO excited!

  10. Congratulations!! Enjoy your day out there…
    I hope you get to wear flip flops and play in the dirt!

  11. Congratulations! I enjoyed your seven! ~applause~
    I’ve worn my flip flops for two days now and it’s such a fun feeling. I hope you get to wear yours soon. Now I impatiently wait for the days of playing in the dirt… 🙂

  12. Congratulations on receiving another award and thanks for sharing it with me. I love your list of seven things and hope you are enjoying this lovely spring day!

  13. Great award, Dianna, this describes you very well. Congrats!

  14. Congratulations, Dianna! I enjoyed your list. I think of myself as younger, I guess I’m like my grandmother who told me years ago. She said, pointing to her head, “I don’t feel old up here!” She liked digging in the dirt and so do I, so maybe there’s something to that to keep one feeling younger.

    No one deserves it more congratulations Dianna. Oh, so glad I can help you out with your secret talent with my missed spelling works in a lot of my replies to you. I have not improved very much from the old spelling bees we had in school.

    See what I mean. I meant words not works but at least I did not miss spell it 😉
