I Won The Most #Inspiring Blog #Award!
I was honored today to learn authorAllison Bruning chose to award me! How cool is that?
Allison is the author of Calico and Reflections.
This is a new blog award, pretty cool huh? Ironic that I am getting these now, as I’ve not been keeping up with the blog recently. This is encouragement to get back to it. I will admit, I’ve missed it, and the blogging seems to help me clear my head to be able to focus on my fiction writing. Has anyone out there missed me, missed my specific brand of sarcasm and wit? Anyone? Beuller?
This isn’t my typical post, but then again lately – what’s typical? Life gets busy sometimes, you know? I’ve been prepping for a speaking engagement, which was April 27th. It went quite well. Last year around this time, and this same seminar – I wrenched my knee and tore the meniscus in my left knee and the interior ligament. I was more careful this time.
I don’t think the presentation was nearly as dynamic as melting a mannequin with a blow torch but then again, there were no fire hazards. No props, no fire, just a video clip from ‘The Incredibles’, and PowerPoint pictures of a medieval knight ( Sir Rustalot stayed home this time), a modern knight – a marine; and Ironman! I know, you’re scratching your head wondering how in the world all of that was relevant to the other but I managed. You know me – tie together vampires and butterflies, or did you miss that post?
Then I’ve been tackling a home DIY project – might even post some pics of my finished work. The oldest daughter is getting ready to graduate high school and before planning a party I realized – OMG, I’ve got to paint the bathroom. Then upon looking around -and the hall, oh and the bedroom needs fresh paint. But, for now I am sticking just with the bathroom and the hallway.
Now, onto the award: the rules are pretty simple.
1. Display the award on my Blog. (check)

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them. (fifteen???? scratches head bewildered. Well
I ‘ll see what I can manage)
5. Notify these bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.
