The Versatile Blogger Award

Earlier this evening, I was delighted to discover that Nancy Williams had given me The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Nancy! I treasure this because I truly want to be a versatile blogger.

This award has three rules: 

Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
List seven things about yourself.
Give the award to seven friends.

About me:

1. I love to play tennis and was disappointed today when snowy weather forced closure of the indoor tennis center where I play so tennis was 1 1/2 hours instead of the usual Thursday 3! Although the snow is beautiful, it creates dangerous roads that cause closures including the fitness center where I take aerobics also on Thursdays.
2. I spend more time than I should reading e-mail and the blogs of friends. Soon I'll need to spend more of that time working on my next book.
3. Every year I'm late sending out Christmas cards, but the ones I send are unique.
4. I love to encourage children to use their imaginations as they create art work.
5. I'd rather write or paint than spend time in the kitchen cooking.
6. It's fun to travel with my husband to exotic tropical destinations. I'm not sure where those places are now. I understand even Key West got temperatures down in the 40s.
7. My favorite colors are green and yellow. I think I'm a springtime girl!

Seven outstanding bloggers--my picks for The Versatile Blogger Award:

1. Bodie Parkhurst
2. Country Fried Mama
3. Marilyn Meredith
4. Thoughts in Progress
5. Sylvia Dickey Smith
6. Bobbye Terry
7. Giggles and Guns

CONGRATS, Monti! C. Lee McKenzie gave SunnyRoomStudio that award in the fall and I'm hoping to pass it on during the holiday season (along with your award!) ... but w/Noah's crisis this past week, life has slowed down some. At any rate, you deserve it so much! Have a great holiday! --Daisy @ SunnyRoomStudio

Congratulations Monti on winning the blog award. And I love tennis too. Yesterday I had a good match, won 3:1, then lost 1:3 and even at 2:2.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Hi Monti! I couldn't find your email and filled out the form on your site, but hadn't heard back. I need to know the month and year of your book for my book trailer contest. Also, is it available on YouTube? I'd prefer to use that link instead. Thanks!

Notes Along the Way with Mary Montague Sikes said...

Great to find so many tennis lovers!
Nancy, hope you find a partner soon! Enid, you have to play tennis if you live in Australia!

Thanks, Golden, Nancy, and Enid.

I've sent two e-mails to you, Diane.

Thanks, all.
