Award Time!


Well, I am very far behind!! CMash Loves to Read gave me this award ages ago, and I am just getting around to picking it up now...thank you! Cheryl hosted Tuesday Table Talk for a while, which I enjoyed quite a bit. She has a lovely blog with lots of good books to read on it! Stop by and tell her Lily sent you!


Now for the criteria:
To accept the award you must link back and thank the person who gave you the Life is Good award and answer the 10 questions and pass it along to 6 other blogs :)

1. If you blog anonymously are you happy doing it that way; if you are not anonymous do you wish you had started out anonymously so you could be anonymous now?
I do blog anonymously and I am happy doing so. I made the decision to blog, and I do not want my ramblings to have any effect on the lives of my husband (professionally) or of my children. I was glad for this decision when my husband ended up unemployed. A google search of his name by potential employers would not have resulted in finding my blog!

2.Describe one incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
I don't really consider myself stubborn. Then again, I may be, but I live with a few people that redefine the term "stubborn" every day. Therefore, living in that setting, I just cannot call myself stubborn. (That character trait is found on my husband's side!!)
3.What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
Someone I like, overall, who could stand to lose a few pounds.
4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Iced Tea
5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Read, blog, crochet, sew, needlepoint, play games with my kids.
6.Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life? What is it?
I'm pretty happy with my life the way it is. I would love to take all the kids to Disney. We did that when some were too little to remember, and I was carrying my youngest. I would love them all to go again.
7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever , the shy person, or always ditching?
I was fairly popular, did many different things, actually chose social activities over academics, and still managed to do well in school.
8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment of your life what would you see? The birth of my first child.
So many, birth and death, both very poignant events.
9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I do share a lot of myself (another reason I'm glad to remain anonymous).
10. If you had the choice to sit down and read or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Read, definitely read. I will chat in person, but less so on the phone. I'm not a phone person.

To pass this award on, I wanted to recognize blogs that, in my mind, epitomize "Life is Good", as the award is named:

Aw, Lily, you're wonderful! :) I'm honoured to accept this award, because you are the person giving it. It means a lot :)

Thank you so very much Lily! I am just dumbfounded, flabbergasted and gobsmacked! I am so thrilled and humbled to accept this award. You are a kind and generous person and I am so grateful to have "met" you.

I have one quick question, well... a couple of quick questions, if you would be so kind. (I would email this to you but I can't find a way to send you a private email or to give you my email address without putting it here in the comments section - again, ignorant newbie here! lol)

1) Can I give out a 7th award to someone, or is it strictly limited to 6?

2) I believe I've done my post correctly in terms of laying it out and linking back to this post, but I'm not sure just how the award "button" gets added to my page or how I am supposed to "give" it to those I have chosen to pass it on to.

I'm sorry to be a bother, but this is all still so new to me! Any help you could give me would be very much appreciated. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart and God Bless you,
Martha

Martha,
You can give the award to anyone you like. I think it means at least six recipients, 7 is fine.

There was no coding for this button, so I used the snipping tool which appears in Microsoft 7 or the one before it, Microsoft Vista. You find it under all programs > accessories > snipping tool. Then you save to your computer picture file, and add it to your post like any other picture. If your computer will allow a cut and paste, you can do it that way, in your EDIT HTML tab in the blogger 'create a post'. I

If that is not enough information to get you going, feel free to email me. I cannot believe I do not have a link to email me...what a total stooge, I thought I had one! thorns dot lily at gmail dot com. I will fix that and add an "email me" button right now!

Glad you like the award :)Your blog is really in the "Life is Good" spirit of things !! Enjoy passing it on!
