I love blog awards

Topcat of Titania's Dreamy Delights awarded me with a blog award. Thank you for that :) Getting an award is just really nice.

The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are:

1 – Make a post and link it back to the person who gave you the award
(and include their website address)
2 – Share 7 random things about yourself
3 – Award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award and
contact them to let them know they have won.

The hardest part is to nominate 7 blogs.  There are so many to choose from, but the good thing is that I get to choose someone who hasn't been nominated and I decided to nominate a few blogs from far away. Many of these I can follow by using Google Translate and although I know the translations are sometimes quite approximate (to be kind) I wouldn't be able to understand anything at all if not for those translator. Thank you all international soap makers who delight me regularly with your wonderful blogs.

The seven random things about myself:

1.  I have two Bichon Frise dogs.  They are Perla, the mother, and Táta, the daughter.  Perla is my sweetest darling, she is most beautiful, well mannered and dainty.  Like me, she is a fussy eater.  Táta is very boisterous and she'll eat anything that crosses her mouth and as a result she is a bit chubby.  She's constantly ona diet, but it's hard because she'll eat the bird food and the goldfish food (and her mothers food if she can).  She loves to get wet.  And she loves absolutely EVERYONE.

2.  I like to wear white.  Specifically White Levi's 501's, White Jockey T-shirts and White Keds.  I got really bored with all the black clad women here in the dark North.  I mean, I know black is sophisticated, but when EVERYBODY dresses in black ALL THE TIME it just gets depressing.  So I rebelled.  I wear my whites when I garden, so sometimes, technically, I wear brown also!

3.  I'm 5 foot 10 (177.5 cm) like Princess Diane.  I wanted to be small and blond with curly hair and brown eyes when I was little.  I added: A smaller nose and bigger boobs to that list when I got to be a teenager.  Now I'm just really happy with the way I am "warts and all" so to speak.  I even made peace with my straight hair.

4.  I love American Country music.

5.  I sip cod fish oil from the bottle every morning.

6.  I work out with a good friend of mine 3 times a week.  We lift weights, go to spinning classes, do Yoga and Pilates.  My favorite form of exercise is Pilates, by far.  I think it's because it's easy and it doesn't have to cost anything (have I mentioned that I'm a closet cheapskate).  I used to do it at home, on the floor, every day for an hour.  Boy did I look good then :)

7.  I am a HUGE fan of Terry Pratchet.  He writes fantastic social commentary books in the form of Fantasy literature.  Best known are his Discworld series.  My favorite characters are DEATH and the  Wiches, particularly Granny Weatherwax.  I plan to be like her when I get old.

Was that too much information, perhaps?  Oh, well!


  1. Thank you very much for your award! I'll try to honour the rules with blogs I like of my own. It is always a pleasure to get to know people from far away and share common passions and learn fron one another. Since I am an avid reader I'll try to look up Terry Pratchet at my local library. Don't they have capsules of cod oil in your country? ;-)

  2. Ah! How much we have in common, Ambra! Tall-white-wearing-country-singin'-EFA-swiggin'-soap-makin'-gals unite! LOL! (though I do flax oil from the bottle!) Do you like pickled herring, too? Oh what fun -Thanks for brightening my day! ~Becky

  3. Ambra,many thanks!
    I am very happy!
    I'm going to write a post)

  4. Lol Ambra! I have loved following your blog for the short time that I have found it. And I love Terry Pratchet too :o I have just finished reading 'I Shall Wear Midnight', the final Tiffany Aching novel. I very much admire Granny Weatherwax however I have a sneaking suspicion I will turn out more like Nanny Ogg in my old age! :P

  5. Lavandine - You are very welcome. I really enjoy your blog (I get to practice my French). PS. Capsules are for wimps :)
    Becky I know! I loved your 7 random things (and would you believe, I had you pegged as a tiny, little one :)
    Masha - You are so welcome. I love to be able to follow your blog through Google translate.
    Topcat - So glad to meet another Terry Pratchet fan. His new Discworld is about to be published. Nanny Ogg is hilarious. We'll have to get together when we get old :)
