Fabulous Blog ribbon!

Sandra, at A WriterWeaves a Tale, has kindly passed on this ribbon to me--thanks so much, Sandra!

According to the rules, I need to reveal five “fabulous moments” in my life, mention five things I love, and list five things I hate, then pass on the award to five more deserving bloggers. Here goes:

Five fabulous moments in my life:

-getting my first permanent job out of college with a scholarly publisher

-the night I became engaged

-my wedding day

-my first publication, a poem, in a literary magazine

-the day I left my job to start my own freelancing business

Five  things I love:

 (just a few off the top of my head. These are things, not people and pets, which go without saying)

-Books, books, books!


-Watching DVDs of old television shows from the 50s and 60s (e.g. Dick van Dyke, Alfred Hitchcock Presents)

-Bright, vivid colors, especially blues and greens, and especially blue and green together

-Green salads with fruit! cranberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges…yum!

 Five  things I hate:

-My mother’s dementia. The existence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in the world.


-Creepy crawly things (no, I will never live in the South, in spite of my next item)

-Being cold

-People who complain about others trying to force religious beliefs on them while trying to force their own nonbelief on others

Five deserving bloggers:

-My Writing Corner    http://amywritesnet.blogspot.com/

-How to Laugh at Alzheimer’s   http://laughatalzheimers.blogspot.com/

-Full Mind, Empty House  www.emptyhousefullmind.com

-Quig Land    www.quigland.com/
