My first Blog award Ever!

I am taking a break from my A-Z challenge today because I want to share this blessing (But I will be back on it tomorrow):

Thank you Pam from 2 Encourage for awarding me the Versatile Blogger award.  I cannot stop grinning.  To say that I am very chuffed is an understatement.

According to the directions, I am to share 7 things about myself. Then I pass the award on to blogger friends who in turn, will link back to me and follow the instructions again.
So-o-o-o, you may not have known:
  1. I absolutely love parker jotter pens.  I have an array of them, in my bible, my wallet, cubby.  Odd, I know.
  2. If I could, I would rescue every single squatter dog I see and daily I see many.  They break my heart.
  3. I want to learn to play piano, gave it up as a child, but you're never too old to learn, right?
  4. I love games like trivial puisuit, card games, family games, etc
  5. I'd use a map book over GPS any day.
  6. I love the movie Grease and have watched it too many times to mention
  7. I love singing out loud in my car when I'm alone.
And the award goes to......
I would like to pass on this award to:
Once again, to Pam, Thank you, you encourage me with your optimism and grace. 


AND THEN......

Thank you Erin, from My Nuggets of Truth, for blessing me with the Butterfly Blog award.  This is my second one in as many days and I don't think I will able to stop smiling.

7 things about myself.  Well, here goes:
  1. I love Romantic comedy on the edge of your seat type movies, with a twist in the tail
  2. I love cars with tons of gadgets 
  3. I recognise people by their cars and their number plates.
  4. I love it when my children roar with laughter at something I said.
  5. I love a good book that I can't put down and then am disappointed when its finished.
  6. I can only bare ironing if I have cool music playing
  7. My favourite verse is:  Isa 58 v 11:  The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones;  You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

  1. Just as I was feeling rejected - I head the second list. My deep gratitude to you, she says bowing slightly.
    I didn't know you ironed bare, no wonder hubby keeps you close to home.
    Ok, I admit I enjoy making people laugh too. Have a great day fellow Grease addict.

  2. Tracy,

    Heartfelt thanks! :) These are both such fun awards and I can't wait to get started on them! I loved reading about your favorites and the passions that you have. You are such a lovely lady!! :)

    Enjoy a blessed day!

  3. Woohoo! Congratulations Tracy!

  4. Aww, thanks Tracy! I love your list. We have quite a bit in common. My heart aches for abused pups, I love board games and we don't own a GPS. I still prefer looking at a map too!

  5. Tracy,

    Gosh thanks Tracy for your kind words. But Giiiirlfriend this is way too much pressure! (smiles) I love the move Grease too, and I get sick to my stomach when I see abused animals I would take them all in and give them a home if I could. Can't wait to check out some of these other blogs, it may take a few days. Congrats on your award.

    Blessings to you Tracy.
