Yogi from Yogi's Den gifted me (and 6 others) yesterday with "The Versatile Blogger" award.
Thank you, Yogi!
What comes with this little jewel is the instructions to reveal 7 truths about myself and then pass the award on to 7 others.
My 7 truths include (sorry, no photos for these):
1. My 2 favorite required reading books in high school were Scarlett Letter and A Tale of Two Cities. My least favorite book was Bridge of San Luis Rey.
2. Back in the day, high school seniors enrolled in Home Economics were given an exam with the possibility of receiving the "Betty Crocker Award" and then go on to compete on a higher level for a college scholarship. The year I was a junior in high school, we had no senior class. (It was a new high school and the seniors in our district were allowed to remain at the other high school in town.) My Home Ec teacher required the juniors to take the exam. I'm still not sure how it happened but I won the award for my high school. Seriosly, there was another girl in my class that really should have received the award. I've always felt bad about that.
3. Cooking is something I truly enjoy (well, most of you probably knew that) but what you may not know is that my favorite time and place to cook is when we're camping.
4. A lot of people have asked me what kind of camera I have. I actually have 2 that I use all the time. The first one is a small, point-and-shoot Sony Cyber-shot that I like to have with me all the time "just in case." Because it's small I can carry it in my pocket or purse. My other camera is a Nikon D80. I manage some fairly decent photos with it but I wish I knew someone who could give me some instruction on all it's capable of. I do have an excellent reference book for the camera but I'm more of a learn-by-watching type of person.
5. I have this ability to be able to tell when something isn't level. It comes in really handy when I'm scrapbooking or when AD and I are trying to hang pictures. Years ago I was sitting on the couch in the home we owned then and I noticed that the door jam was lower on one side than the other. I made a comment to AD and he said I was wrong. "Go get a ruler and we'll see." It turned out that I was right (I never doubted I wasn't) because there was an eighth of an inch difference.
6. I didn't learn to drive a standard-shift automobile until my daughter was in the 1st grade.
Okay, so that's 6. I know I need 7 and I do know what it is but you'll have to come back on Saturday to find out what it is and who I've passed the award on to.
Yogi, Thanks again for this challenge. It was a good one. Not that anything I passed on here is of much importance but tt really caused me to think about what I might want to pass on.
