Thank You, Elysium!

Elysium of Book Ramblings has given me The Versatile Blogger Award, for which I send many thanks back to her. If you haven't visited her blog, I really hope you take the time to do so!

One of the rules that comes along with this award is sharing seven things about myself, so here goes:

  1.  When I began talking, my first words were "woo woo" (translated: "dog").
  2. If Denis and I won the lottery, we'd have a house outside Wickenburg, Arizona and one on the Waternish Peninsula of the Isle of Skye in Scotland. (I'll be taking window screens with me for the Skye house, since I don't believe in sharing the summer with midges!)
  3. My favorite thing to do each January is to watch over 20,000 Sandhill Cranes flying and feeding in Cochise County, Arizona.
  4. I'm using up some 30-year-old yarn by needlepointing in the evenings while watching television.
  5. I'm so well-trained that I do not throw my book in the pool even when I'm a target for bees, wasps, lizards and geckos. (And no, I do not enjoy having any of that list crawling up the back of my neck!)
  6. I love to watch Midsomer Murders to see if I can identify the village(s) in which each episode is filmed.
  7. I'd long ago stopped watching animated films-- until I married Denis.  In many ways (like this one), we're two kids in disguise.
No being a kid right now, I'm afraid. I have to finalize my shopping list and go to the grocery store. Life would be so  much simpler (and cheaper) if we didn't have to eat!


  1. Cathy - Congratulations on a well-deserved award! And thanks for sharing a little about yourself. I would love to see those cranes, too..

  2. Congratulations on your award! I hope you and Denis do win the lottery!

    I totally agree with you on that eating thing. Coming up with a meal plan every day has really gotten old for me.

  3. Congrats on the award. I LOVE Midsomer Murders!

  4. I don't thinks I've ever watched Midsomer Murders but my mum loves it. Living in Scotland sounds good :)


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
