Inspiring? Sweet? Addictive?

A huge thank you to
Dianna at
These Days of Mine
for thinking
I am 
all of these
and for awarding
me with three blog awards!

The first award:

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

If I could inspire even one
person in my lifetime,
I would be humbled and happy.

The second award:

The Super Sweet Award

This award requires me to answer the following questions:

Cookies or Cake:  Cookies; chocolate chip, please.
Chocolate or Vanilla:  Chocolate
What is your favorite sweet treat:  Turtle anything.  LOVE pecans.
When do you crave sweet things the most?  When don't I. :(
If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?  I have no idea.

And last:

The Addictive Blog Award

To rule for accepting this award is to link back to 
the person that gave me the award and to explain why
I began blogging.

My life can sometimes be a bit solitary.
I was about to turn 50 and was looking for a way
to "expand my horizons" and to step
out of my comfort zone.  I have always loved to write but
do not like to journal or keep a diary.
Blogging seemed a natural, next step.
My blog, perhaps unfortunately,
has no real direction, at least not yet.
It is not what I imagined in the beginning yet
has brought me many happy surprises a long the way.

I now get to pass
this award onto fellow bloggers.
I know many don't accept awards but
I still enjoy receiving and most of all,
passing them on.
So here goes:

at Hood's Happenings

at Irish Garden House

at It's All About Purple

I hope you'll take a minute to check
these great blogs out!

Wow, this was nice of your bloggy friend to acknowledge you in this way. I started my blog around the same age as you did, and I have really met some amazing people. I was just noticing the blue flowers below. They are beautiful. You are getting quite good with the camera, you know? Have a nice weekend, and I LOVE PECANS TOO!
