Last but not Least

Here is the third blog award I won from my very dear friend, Beth Grace of The Musings of Me, Myself, and I...And Other Such Fantastical Nonsense.  Thanks so much, my dear Beth!

I must list ten random things about myself and pass this onto six other bloggers.

Ten Random Things

1. My favorite book is The Little Minister by James Barrie, who also wrote Peter Pan.

2. I immensely dislike (I won't say hate) asparagus, zucchini, and mushrooms.

3. I never write out character lists or plot blueprints when I write a story, unless I am working on a mystery, and then only loosely.  I find it easier to write when I am not tied down to a stiff pattern.  It seems more realistic to me, although I am hardly a realist!  :)

4. I love music, especially epic music, such as the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack, and beautiful music, such as Mozart.

5. I am probably the only one in the world, or at least one of three or four at the most, who listens to the playlist on Kiri Liz's blog, Lianne Taimenlore, while I am writing, which is about all afternoon!

6. I am fourteen years older than my youngest brother.

7. My favorite movie is Lorna Doone.

8. I like Charles Dickens better than Jane Austen.  Please, withhold the tomatoes!

9. I still read Laura Ingalls Wilder and Francis Hodgson Burnett.

10. I wish that old fashioned gowns, such as were worn by the ladies in the 1840s, were still in style, and that we went around in poke bonnets, gloves, parasols, petticoats, and high-button shoes.  Simply Delightful!

Here are the lovely bloggers to whom I am passing on this award:

Thanks for reading!


  1. Thank you so much for awarding me! I can't believe I've never stumbled across your blog! Hurrah for the crusade. Thanks for joining us.

  2. Ah, thank you, sweet friend!! I feel so honored! :)
    P.S. And you're absolutely right! I do need to take the initiative, sit down, write, and post on my other blog! I fear I have been procrastinating on it. I will try to get another post up soon... but no promises! :)

  3. Thanks for the award, dear friend!! I'm deeply honored! :)
    And you listen to my blog music every day? Hmm... so if I changed some of the songs, would you notice? ;)

  4. Thank you for awarding me darling !!!!!!


Thanks for your comments! I love comments! Thrive on them, actually! Please just remember to keep them clean. I don't care if you make them long. The longer, the better, in fact! I really appreciate it when you take the time to tell me what you think.
