Welcome aboard!

I would like to extend a warm welcome to my friend Angel May, who has decided to join us here in the Land of Blog. Her blog is called Angel May's Growing Pains, and you can find it right here. I encourage you to go over and say hello. Angel May writes beautifully, and she has a great eye for photography.

Now I would like to thank Barb of Finding My Voice for the beautiful new award that graces my sidebar. It's the Kreativ Blogger Award. I put off responding until I got home, but now I have homework to do.

Rules for receiving this award:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreative Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

Okay - 1-3 are taken care of. Now for #4.

Seven interesting things about myself. Hmmm.:

1. I was born at home after seven minutes of labour. My mother was very efficient.
2. I cost $7. That was the cost of a house call. The doctor missed my birth, but he did come to the house.
3. I knit socks. At least I did, before I started spending all my time at the computer.
4. I sing. I've sung in choirs all my life (mostly Baroque), and a few years ago I had a little vocal trio going, here in Nanaimo. We sang WWII era songs - Andrews Sisters stuff.
5. Despite my Canadian status, I have never watched a hockey game.
6. I can't sew to save my life. When I took Home Ec, I sewed the apron I was making to the skirt I was wearing. With a sewing machine.
7. I am an incurable Chick Flick addict.


Now, for the fun part. I hereby pass this award on to the following bloggers, each of whom inspires, amuses, and/or educates me:

1. Virginia DeBolt of First 50 Words
2. Katrina Stonoff of Stone Soup
3. T. Clear of Premium T
4. Joshilyn Jackson of Faster than Kudzu
5. Kathryn Magendie of Tender Graces
6. Hazel Smith of The Clever Pup
7. Totalfeckineejit of Totalfeckineejit (heh)

That was fun.

Thanks for the "Welcome", gal! Much appreciated. I should tell you that, when you said "Chick Flick", I saw "Chick-Fil-a" :)

Heh..leave it to the doctor to still charge regardless, wot?

And speaking of welcoming, you're the latest host( or hostess in this case ), over at the Theme Thursday blog! I just had to pick that from your list, I did...

Joshilyn Jackson said...

I like CHick-Fil-A more, I think. I prefer movies where rubber puppets eat people.

Thanks for the Kudzu-Love

Thank you for including me in your list of honorees. I am thrilled that you find my blog helpful.

Sandra Leigh said...

Angel May, LOL! Never having eaten Chick-Fil-a, I have not become addicted. There has to be one yummy food that doesn't haunt my dreams.

Subby - really? Are you quite sure that was mine? I don't remember suggesting "Over the hill", but I like it.

Joshilyn, somehow that doesn't surprise me. I've read your blog and your books! ;>)

Thank you, John. My award matches yours. Who designs these awards, btw? They're very pretty.

Virginia, you are very welcome. Your site is like a diving board on those days when I'm finding it hard to take the plunge into writing.

Sandra, yep! 'Twas yours( along with shrinking, tender, tough... ). This'll be a fun one-HA!

Thanks a million for the award and congrats to you too.You're 6th was so funny and so honest, it made me laugh.i went to an all boys school but we went to and mixed in with an all girls school for one lesson a week, I had to leave early and with all eyeswatching tried to look cool as I exited but unfortunately missed the exit and opened the door into the store cupboard. DOH!

Sandra Leigh said...

Awwww, Eejit. You know, the girls in that class (presuming they remember the incident) probably remember it fondly. I can hear them now - "Remember that guy that came to our class and tried to leave through the closet? That was so cute!" Girls are like that.

Thank-you Sandra!

The Clever Pup said...

Hi Sandra, I ran here as fast as I could. Pant! Pant!. I've been out of town.

Thanks for thinking of me.

Very interesting, I must say, about the hockey. I'm not a fan either but I grew up in the home town of Bobby Orr.

I usually don't do these anymore. Maybe 7 things about me will pop up in my sidebar.
