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!

  1. Congratulations on another VERY well-deserved blog award AND congratulations on getting through that A-Z list of yours!! Thanks a bunch for passing the award on to me and Sammy – this is gonna be a BIG challenge. Or I could just copy your list and make a few minor changes (like who I’m married to and my son’s name!) because you’ve described ME in much of your list! LOL

    Again……congratulations and thanks dear Dianna!

    Pam and Sam

  2. You should have used F for friendly. I love having you as a friend! Great blog.

  3. Congratulations Dianna, on another deserved recognition. Coming on the heels of your 500th post, I must say it’s very appropriate in that you give thought and so much heart to many of my favorite topics including The Great Outdoors: plant life and creatures, Family, Friends, Local History, Humor and my most favorite…your sharing and telling about the occasional instances of serendipity which delight me. Thank you for passing this along to me. I will give it some thought.

  4. Congratulations-well deserved! Gosh, Dianna, I can totally relate to many of these things on your list 🙂 Love the pics….I’m still drooling over the beach one!

  5. Congratualtions Dianna! Oooo and I really enjoyed your “I ams”. I also think the picture of you kneeling in the sand is cool! I would never have thought of you as being not organized or ill-tempered. I have a little temper thing too that sort of stays contained~most of the time. I am still laughing about Motor Man’s comment about your shortness. Hey! I know about short 🙂 I thoroughly enjoyed this post!

  6. Congratulations on another well-deserved award! You and Sammy are raking in the ‘bling’!

  7. Congratulations on another award. Well-deserved..Also, about your blog yesterday, with the beautiful petunia, I received a plant catalog and in there was a petunia like yours, called a hybrid petunia. Of course, I have never had one, as mine are always thin and spinley. I will be checking into this……

  8. Congratulations again…I read this earlier, and for some reason, didn’t get to the comment section! Thanks for passing along the award…you did a great job of describing yourself! I will have to think about that one a while! And that short comment…I have been on the receiving end of those too. My very much younger sister is MUCH taller than I am, so I have always had to endure her teasing! Have a great day!

  9. Great A to Z post. I don’t consider you a pack rat in any form. Your home is always beautiful and put together. Where’s the dust? The short comment was too funny. Love that Motor Man! And I can always agree with the Diet Coke addict.

  10. Congratulations on another well deserved award! I enjoyed your list only it’s missing…beautiful, kind, thoughtful, fun loving…and I could go on and on. 🙂

  11. Congratulations on your award, Diana! I enjoyed reading your list and can relate to many of them, especially being nearsighted. I’m definitely going to check out the monovision contacts. Love your photos, the one on the beach is really neat. Thanks for passing the award to me, I’m honored. I’m like the others, I’ll have to give this one some thought! Have a great day!

  12. Hey, great job, and congratulations! As I read your list, I found myself having so much in common with you. Maybe that’s the bit of magic that draws people to be regular readers of particular blogs…you sense that there is a kindred spirit behind the words on the screen.
    Thanks for sharing about yourself! ~ Sheila

  13. this was really cute. i’d replace only the ‘B’ word – instead of Blogger, I’d have said Beautiful! 🙂

  14. I enjoyed reading your list, and loved the pictures. Congratulations on your award, very well deserved.

  15. Congratulations Diana!!! I love your posts and and look forward to seeing your photos….and of course Sundae:) Have a super duper day and thank you for nominating me too:)

  16. And one more thing….thanks for sharing more about you:)

  17. Congratulations again !! The list flows very well, and I know it took you some time to put it together .. But I’d have to go with ” xenial ” for the “X” choice .. look it up !!

  18. Great list! Learned about you…and learned a new word! (well, maybe two, cause now I have to go look up Marshall’s contribution!)

  19. Challenge indeed…the ABC Award looks like it would be a tough one – but you made it look like a snap! Congratulations on another deserving award!

  20. Congratulations! and now we know “the rest of the story” about the sweet lady Dianna.

  21. Your blog is DEFINITELY an awesome blog, so your award is very well-deserved! This was a really fun read and a great way to get to know you even better. I learned a lot about you from your ABC list. 🙂 And I loved all the photos! I also see where we have a few more things in common. Thanks, Dianna for naming my blog too; you are such an awesome friend. ♥

  22. Shirley Matthews Dunn

    Great job once again dear friend. You deserve every award you get for your wonderful blog you are one of the best!

  23. Congratulations Dianna. Your blog is certainly awesome! And thank you for passing it along to me. Wow! I’ll try to think of 26 things but it may a day or two. Somehow I doubt you are a xanthippe. But I love that new word!
