Such a Lovely Gesture!


Having only recently entered the world of blogging, I still have much to learn….like:

When is the best time to post a new entry?

When is the worst?

Am I doing this …. too much? (dot, dot, dot, dot….in case anyone was wondering what I meant there)….

How does anyone even find this blog?

Has anyone found this blog?

Well, Alex Folkes has, (check out her blog at The Small Things), and a great big thank you to her for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award!

According to the rules, I am to provide seven titillating facts about myself….oh, wait, not titillating facts, just seven facts or THINGS about myself….(titillating / things same difference)….and then nominate 15 other new’ish blogs that I also find to be quite lovely.

Seven titillating Things / Facts:

1.  To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book.  I have read it every summer since I was twelve.

2.  In addition to my family, hiking is among the great loves of my life.  I have hiked in the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Mount Rainier, the Grand Tetons and many more.  I’m also slightly obsessed with the Appalachian Trail and have been section hiking it with my sister-in-law….We call ourselves, “Two Chicks with Too Much Stuff.”  I hope to someday through-hike the trail with my little boy.

3.  I’m a cancer survivor.  I am 2 years, 9 months and 13 days cancer free.

4.  I love a hot cup of Starbuck’s, but I wish that when I ordered a $5.00 cup, that I got at least $4.00 worth of coffee….instead of $2.00 worth of coffee and $3.00 worth of foam.

5.  I consider people watching a valid hobby.

6.  I heart Maine – It truly is The Way Life Should Be.

7.   Everything I needed to know about life, I learned from the original Beverly Hills 90210…OK, maybe not EVERYTHING, but a decent amount of stuff.

15 New’ish Blogs I Think Are Lovely (in no particular order of loveliness):

1.  The Misadventures of Anna & Bear Bait

2.  The (Usually) Happy Stepmom

3.  iamrandomsam

4.  That’s Just Ridiculous

5.  In Step

6.  Flaming Honesty

7.  Going To Beat This Cancer!

8.  Welcome To My World

9.  The Cancer Chronicles

The remainder aren’t so new….but new to me….being new to all this….

10.  Storyshucker

11.  Rachel Being Chatty

12.  Curmudgeon At Large

13.  A Narcissist Writes Letters, To Himself

14.  The Little Engine That Couldn’t

15.  Storytime With John

Thank you again!  I hope you will continue to think I’m lovely after my next post is completed….it’s about the bathroom.
