I’ve been putting this off because I’ve been so busy, but I find I must write this post. I’ve been nominated for the Leibster Blog Award — and not just once, but three times. I know, right! I am totally honored, and didn’t really feel like they had the right person, but after the first two, I realized I would have to admit it. ^_^ The Leibster Award is an award passed from blogger to blogger – no site of origin that I could find – but that kind of makes it even cooler. You pass the blog on to who you feel really deserves it – and the award spreads and grows and is altogether wonderful.
These are the rules: The Liebster Award
- Link back to who nominated you.
- Nominate five blogs with fewer than 200 follows.
- Let nominees know by leaving a comment on their sites.
- Add the award image to your site.
The wonderful and kind people that nominated me for the Liebster award are:

And now, according to the rules, I need to list seven things about myself, which is kind of hard. But I can do it, I know I can. Here they are:
1-My favorite book of all time is Jane Eyre. I read it dozens of times as a kid and am a kind of connoisseur of the Jane Eyre movies. (The best one is the A&E version with Timothy Dalton, even though he really IS too handsome to be Mr. Rochester).
2-My favorite color is indigo, and will make do with that pretty cobalt color you can find in glass. In fact, T knows that if I’m mad at him, all will be forgiven for a piece of pretty glass. I know, but I love it.
3-I make awesome pie. Any kind. And I firmly believe that the quality of the ingredients is at least half of the qualification to make the pie really great.
4-I have two cats, Suzie and Emmett. They were both lost cats that we rescued and they are adorable, except when they’re shedding or when I have to clean the litter. :p
5-My favorite band is Three Days Grace. I know, they are a post-grunge Canadian band, and my sons say I am an emo teenager at heart. Whatever. I just know the lyrics really speak to me. I also like most other music, as long as it’s not demeaning and it has poetry in it.
6-I hate change. Just. Hate. It. I want everyone to stay and be the same and nobody to ever leave. When we have a shakeup at work, I’m a wreck. It’s silly and I KNOW life is change, but it is a battle between me and change and change always wins, but I still hate it.
7-I am ridiculous when it comes to technology. I love it, but can’t quite figure out how to use it unless I force myself. I have a smart phone that is smarter than me and that I don’t know how to really use right. I know it’s POSSIBLE to load music onto an mp-3 player, but haven’t done it yet, because, well I don’t know why I haven’t. It’s not that hard, right? Hmm.
And that’s it. These awards aren’t voted on, they are simply awarded. Congratulations to all of you, you’re all amazing!
