My ABC’s

Recently, Kate over at Believe Anyway, presented me with a new blog award, the ABC (Awesome Blog Content) award.  Thank you, Kate; I’m very honored that you think my blog has awesome content!

 The requirement to accepting the ABC award is to list 26 things about myself, in alphabetical order. Now that’s a challenge! So, settle in, folks, this is a lengthy one…

I am:

A: an amateur photographer. My camera is capable of doing so much more than what I do with it, but I’m happy, and that’s what counts, right?

B:  a blogger. Bet that one surprised you.

C:  a Christian

D:  a Diet Coke addict

E: emotional

F: forgetful. My family and friends laugh, because I put reminders to myself in my cell phone.

G: grounded. If you’ve read my “about” page, you know that my genealogy has been traced, on my maternal grandmother’s side, to Jamestown. I’m proud of my deep roots!

H: hesitant. Motor Man constantly has to push me to venture outside my comfort zone.

I: inquisitive. When someone is telling me something, I want ALL the details.

J: a jeans-wearer. Love my jeans and wear them everywhere I can.

K: a kitty-lover. There have been very few periods in my life that there hasn’t been at least one cat in it.

L: loved

M: Marshall’s mom

N: nearsighted. Thank goodness for mono-vision (a contact in one eye to see distance, and nothing in the other to see up-close).

O: old-fashioned. I love old furniture, old quilts, old baskets, old cars.

P: a pack-rat. But it isn’t to the “hoarding” extent.

Q: a quote collector. I have a notebook of quotes that I save to use in blog posts and in the cards I make.

R: a race fan. It helps when you’re married to a Motor Man.

S: short. Motor Man once told someone that I should sue the town for placing the sidewalks too close to my……derriere.

T: timid. Okay, just a little; not nearly as much as I used to be.

U: unorganized. It goes hand-in-hand with being a pack-rat.

V: a Virginian. (See “G”)

W:  wife to Motor Man.

X: a xanthippe – but only occasionally. (I’ll save you the trouble: it means an ill-tempered woman.)

Y: young at heart

Z: (“zzzz”) a snorer, when I’m sleeping on my back. But Motor Man says they’re cute little snores. (“zzzz“)

Now I am to pass along this award to ten other bloggers. And they are:

One Spoiled Cat

The Road Awaits

Writing Feemail

Mama’s Empty Nest

Emjay And Them

The Farmer’s Daughter

Georgette Sullins

Hot Rod Cowgirl

Ellie’s Place In The World

It’s All About Purple

As always, don’t feel obligated to participate, but I DO think you all have Awesome Blog Content.

Thanks again, Kate!
