Also, stop back in at the end of the week for a wrap up of Monday's forum question.
Man, the writing praise keeps pouring in! I'm not gonna be able to fit into my hat by the end of the week. :)
First, I found out earlier in the week that I was the Grand Prize winner of Rebecca's half of the Super Sister Celebration at Sonshine Thoughts. Here's a link to my story, if you're interested. Honestly, it's hard to lose with a prompt like "Be happy that... your new neighbors aren't cannibals."
Thank you, Rebecca!
Okay, and some awards!
First, from Jessica at Smile, Feel Good, Pass It On sent me two awards. Thank you, Jessica!
I've received both of these already, which does nothing to diminish the awesomeness of getting them again. If you'd like to read seven things about me, check here and here. I'm also going to defer on passing these on for now. I reserve the right to do so in the future :)
And Jules at Trying to Get Over the Rainbow also passed this on to me :) Thanks, Jules!!
The strings with this award (as Jules put it :) ) are that I have to list ten things that I like (not love) and pass it on to ten people. Well, let's see.
I like... blogging and meeting awesome people online.
I like... walking through the woods on campus every morning on my way to class/work.
I like... Snapea Crisps. You must eat these! They're flipping addictive.
I like... wearing flip flops and sandals. A lot! Mainly because I kinda hate things that cover my toes and feet. Yup, I'm weird like that.
I like... almost every vegetable I've ever encountered, including Brussel sprouts and okra. Maybe I'll think of one I don't like, but I can't right now.
I like... picking ripe cherry tomatoes from our plants and eating them like candy. Yum! :)
I like... summer. While I complain about the stifling heat periodically, I will take it over snow any day.
I like... knitting, even if I don't do it enough.
I like... vampires. Yup, I admit it. And I liked them well before the current hype, and I will continue to like them later.
I like... fairy tales. No, not like Disney, watered-down versions, but the ones with teeth and nails and grit that don't have happy endings. And I really like giving these a modern spin.
And for passing it on...
