Blog Award!

Glynis Smy in Cyrpus is always so good to me. (I hope we meet someday.) She writes a lovely blog and submitted an entry for the short story competition. I can always count on her to post a comment here and there on my blog.

Now she has given me an award, A Beautiful Blogger Award. Thank you, Glynis. I treasure our long distance friendship.

Oh gosh, 7! - seven interesting things about me. Wow, that is a hard one. I'm a very private person. Okay, here goes...
1. When I was little I wanted to be a Catholic nun - and I wasn't even Catholic.
2. I'm dyslexic. No news there. But before it had a name, I was ashamed that I couldn't read or spell. I hated how adults and other kids made fun of me - even unintentionally.
3. I'm learning Latin American Spanish only to discover there is such dialect diversity in Mexico (where most of our Spanish speaking clients come from) that I'll still only be able to talk with them piecemeal.
4. Years ago I submitted testimony on social work to a joint sub-committee of a state legislature. I guess it is in the basement archives somewhere - very dusty.
5. I like me again.
6. My kids seem to have turned out okay and they like me.
7. TBA, I'm not finished yet.

It is so hard to narrow down the bloggers I want to bestow the award on. I know some won't put it on their blog, but I'd still like to mention them.

1. Carrie Sheppard
2. Joy Collins
3. Glyn Pope
4. Carol Anne Strange
5. Nick Daws
6. Ivana Maric
7. Jen Garsee
8. Susan Gabriel
9. Ella Press
10. Michelle Gregory
and Andy in France (my writing buddy who shoots fantastic photos).

Love ya!

  1. Congrats on the award, Nadine.

    And I like you, too. :)


  2. Congratulations, Nadine. You so deserve this. I always find an interesting tidbit and food for thought here.

  3. Goodness, aren't you two sweet! Also got an email that said they like me too. Perfect timing after a long week at work. I so hate being new. Many people are not born teachers. I can't wait to get up to speed. Maybe I'll do better at getting my posts done on time.

  4. :) You deserve it for the support you give me Nadine. Thank you for your friendship.
    Wow, we would have so much to talk about if ever we met.
    A Catholic Nun? Interesting.

    Rest up over the weekend. Be happy!

  5. Hello Glynis. I am happy. Life is smiling on me again. Yes, we would have lots to talk about. I can't wait!

  6. Congratulations on your award. Those are some interesting facts.

  7. Thanks, DJ, you are a sweetie. I'm slowly reading your book and enjoying it and your writing style.

  8. Congrats on your lovely award and thank you for passing it on!

  9. Ah thank you, Ivana! Glad you were able to stop by. I think of you often.
