Inspiring Blogger Award: I’m “Inspiring”!

This could be the Grammys and I could be in tears in a strapless too-red dress showing too much cleavage and clutching some gold award thing.

But who doesn’t want to be inspiring? So thank you dear Lorinda, from Ruminations of a Remembrancer. You have to read her works on termites!

I’m supposed to share 7 things about myself so here are scintillating facts:

1). I’m 50. Just 50! Now for only five days, so I’m a just  a wee baby.  But I have resorted to Radical Age Reversal cream.

2). I no longer care much what people think (except that hopefully they think I look younger than my 50 years. Maybe sweet 16?). Why should I care? I’m a half century old.

3). My favorite time is of day is my second cup of coffee with my dog – just the dog. Kids off at school. First cup only half drunk and cold on the counter next to forgotten-biography-school-library book on Steve Jobs, my nine year old’s hero.

4).  I LOVE those self-heating pads you can stick to your shoulders to melt neck pain.

5). I weave. Scarves. Handbags. Yes! Stuff that actually sells as long as it’s below 30 degrees out.

6). I have no patience. NONE! Ask my kids when I still resort to shoving their feet into shoes on school mornings. I might even still tie their laces (they’re 7 and 9 for god’s sake).

7). I’m the only hormonal female in the house besides two girl gerbils, Rosey and Bochella. Largely neglected in the wake of our new male mini poodle, Toby.

So passing on this award to five lovies. I DO love these ladies. I’m supposed to do fifteen, but I’m 50 and I tire easily, and I think these bloggers deserve to be spotlit.

Thanks again, Lorinda!

      Oh, you’re sweet, George, thank you. Really. Most days I feel utterly uninspirational. Especially when you’re housebound with no snow plow in sight now for 3 days. At least I can get out in the world by blogging…

    It took me long enough to get here. I was traveling last week and finally made it home last night. Thank you for the shout out on the inspirational front. I certainly agree with Lorinda that you are inspiring. Your posts always strike a chord with me. I need to follow your lead in not caring what people think. I worry about that too much. And I love the image of you with your second cup of coffee – just you and the dog. Well-deserved award!
