Before I accepted this award, I looked up the word as Webster sees it. "You have the ability to change or fluctuate readily. Also, embrace a variety of subjects." I do believe I am capable of doing these things.

My special new friend, Michelle, at http://afullcottage.blogspot.com honored me with this award. Thank you very much for thinking I was worthy. It was suggested you share seven things about yourself. Here goes, but try to contain yourself.

1. I still mow and do all my yard work.
2. Love to play bingo with other seniors and some not too senior.
3. Rarely ever turn the television on.
4. I love to read. Not as much time for it since started to blog.
5. I have two sisters. I am the oldest.
6. I am not a morning person. I could be a night owl and sleep all day if I let myself.
7. I love bright, warm sunny days. Hate winter. I am a very cold natured person.

I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers:

1. Karen htp://briarsidelane.blogspot.com
2. Elizabeth http://iheartsunnydays.blogspot.com
3. Lottie http://mybluecottage.blogspot.com
4. Linda http://linda-nightstitcher.blogspot.com
5. Kathryn http://kathryn-papermatter.blogspot.com
6. Valrie http://poemsmyway-valrie.blogspot.com
7. Shirl http://shirlsrosecottage.blogspot.com
8. Sharon http://faithhopecherrytea.blogspot.com

The world of blogging is full of very talented and creative people. Each one deserves an award for excellence on posting. Some do not accept awards. That is fine as it does require a lot of time, but they are still worthy. Blessings to all my blog friends.

Congratulations on this award!

I agree that my reading of books has suffered because of my blog hobby. However, I love to read enough that I still carve out time to do it.

G'morning, dear one, congrats on receiving your award. I loved learning a little more about you, too.
Let's see, you were born in 1929, right? Oh, I'd love to hear some of the things you remember from the 30's. I was born oon the last day of 1937, so I don't remember anything until the 40's.
love, bj

Michelle@ A Full Cottage said...

Hi LV,
Thanks for stopping by..I showed my mom your blog over the weekend. She thought blogs were only for people in their 20' or
30's. She is only 66 and never realized there was anybody older than her that had a blog. She was very impressed.

I am so glad that I gave you the versatile blogger award, you really deserve it and it was so nice to find out more about you. We have a lot in common ie: mornings.

Have a great day!!

:) Michelle

Good for you--doing your own yard work... Exercise is so important, and more so as we get older.... You are quite an inspiration to all of us....

Congrats on the award.

Congratulations on your award. I'm impressed that you are mowing your yard and doing your own yard work. My Dad did all that until he lost his eyesight at age 96.
I must admit that I have doubts about you being cold-natured.

Linda said...
