beadandneedle. So very nice to be thought of and to have someone give this to me,thank you again Tanya. With this award each recipient is asked to tell seven things about themselves and then pass this on to ten blogs that they feel are deserving of this award.
So on with the hard part seven things about me,well I'd rather tell you about my grand kids but here goes.
1. I have a magazine addiction. It is very difficult for me to discard them. I nearly cried when Mary Engelbrites magazine called Home Companion went out of print. Thankfully I hung on to quite a few.
2. I have Adult Attention Disorder.So I multi task constantly. Which explains why I never read one book beginning to end.I read many books at the same time. A person with this disorder has a zillion thoughts going on in their head constantly. That's why before I can ever complete something I will have noticed....oh look a chicken! That's our family joke about me and I actually said that once. My grand kids nearly fell over. Oh and before my mind wanders on,I'm on the same medication as my 8yr old grandson.
3. I watch a lot of movies but I must admit I am G and PG rated. I can't wait scary,bloody movies.Give me an action comedy or even better a romantic action comedy, and I am there. Some of my favorites are : Night in a Museum,Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them),all three Mummy movies,Avatar,and all of the Harry Potter movies....well you get the idea.
4.I love my job. I work with my sons so what's not to like.Take a look at our many crazy commercials.We love making them,and from what we hear people in our area love seeing them too. Willz Construction is the name of the company my son owns and I work for.
5.Italian food makes me weak at the knees,I could eat it day and night.
6.Birds are my thing so to speak,all feathered animals. Owls and hawks especially fascinate me.I still hope someday to see an owl in the wild. I can sit for hours and watch our many bird feeders,and have!
7.I have become a fanatic about the dangers of fabric softener and softner sheets among other similar chemicals ,that I believe are very harmful. My 15 yr. old grandson tells a funny story about if I was a detective who was investigating a murder. He believes I would look around and not see the weapons or any of the other obvious signs of how the murder happened. No, I would turn to the other investigators and say" I know exactly what killed these people, fabric softener". Well I guess I believe strongly enough that it would have got them eventually anyway!
Now for an even harder part,naming only 10 blogs that I feel deserve this award. I will list them in no particular order. Some of the ones I have chosen are fairly new blogs,and some are well established and have a large following. Several may never even know that they have been chosen. I am hoping by naming them you will visit these great bloggers and see why I call them my favorites.
The rules to this award are : Receive the award; Say thank you; Grab the button up above; Reveal 7 things about yourself; Then pass it on to 10 of your favorite and stylish bloggers.
