Versatile Blogger Award

What a joy it was to launch my email and find a note from Anastasia from For the Knit of It telling me she had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! This is the best possible honor because it comes from a fellow blogger and knitter. So, first and foremost, thank you Anastasia.

According to the VBA Rules, here are the next steps:

  1. Add the award to your blog 
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you 
  3. Mention 7 random things about yourself ✓ (see below)
  4. List the rules 
  5. Pass on the award to 15 bloggers ✓ (the fun part; see further below)
  6. Inform the 15 bloggers by commenting on their blogs ✓ (even more fun)

7 Random Things About Me:

  1. I can not sing. (Well, I can, but you wouldn’t want to listen).
  2. I can twirl a baton.
  3. I peek at the answers when solving crossword puzzles.
  4. I’ve read The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas at least a dozen times. The plot has romance, intrigue, politics, religion, heroes & villains, kings & queens, honor, friendship and sword fights – what more could one want?
  5. When I was in grade school, I had a goat as a pet. My aunt killed it and cooked it for dinner (cabrito). I don’t like cabrito.
  6. I really dig Kurt Russell’s hat in “The Thing.”
  7. I am learning Mandarin.

I am now pleased to pass on this award to some of my favorite bloggers:
