Award received, miigwetch

 I received the Daisy Blogger Award from Gwen. Miigwetch. Thank you very much, Lady Gwen.

Seven weird things about myself? Let's see. I have to pick and choose seven things that are weird.

1. Dance all around the living room, the kitchen and down the hallway.  Have to wait til everyone's sleeping first.  There's no room. 

2. Magic, sorcerers, witches, and other arcane/mundane subjects are apt to enter into my conversations at any moment. I have received some very odd looks from people.

3. Talk to myself so much that those I live with have to see if I'm actually talking to them before they answer, questions in particular.  I have received some very good answers for plotting problems if they answer without thinking.

4. I like to vacuum.  At least til the vacuum got the best of me one day.  Now, I get one of those little duster types, or leave the vacuuming to someone else.  I'd use a broom but the witticisms delivered by family and friends pertaining to...well, hauuh.  

5. Walk into doors, walls and such other hard to miss items that I'm surprised I pass the peripheral vision test.

6. I can make frybread, but can't make yeast bread.  Don't understand it, they are both leavening agents. By the way, I use baking powder, flour and water or milk when I make fry bread.

7. My doctor once told me I had an allergy to wild rice.  Not sure how that could be, I've been ricing since I was 13, 14 years old.  I had gone on the lake with my son and within an hour, we had to land as my face and hands were swelling.  That was the only time I had that reaction. Weird is all I can say.

I received this award last week. Had a time coming up with weird things about me. I had this image of people telling me I'm weird. For the life of me, I couldn't remember why I was weird.  Even asked my sister and brother, who were probably too polite to give me any answers.  Could it be the fearsome repercussions if they did answer faithfully?

Now for the five bloggers who've helped me in one way or another with my writing skills:

mark koopman
Michelle
Jessica Mckendry
David Powers King
Ruth Berge

I know I'm supposed to let them know I've given this award. Not totally sure what the award is for. And from my search, I found this entry. The Reader Appreciation Award which has different picture.  I saw a couple other references.

The above award apparently is an award for the most comments.

"Here’s the rules:
Award your top 6 bloggers who have commented the most.
Be thankful.
You cannot award someone who has already been awarded. And you cannot give the award back to me.
Don’t forget to tell the bloggers you’ve awarded.
If you don’t want to pass on this award, that’s okay to. Just admire it."

Well, most have commented on one or the other of my blogs.  And each of those comments has sharpened my writing skills, either observation, thinking or taking my plotting off into another direction.  I enjoy reading the comments on these blogs and have occasionally followed others on the basis of the comments they've left.

I'll just leave off the letting the bloggers above know. There are more I read regularly and in an upcoming post, I'll mention them. In fact, I must clean out my bookmark as they're now on my reader list having learned how to operate that handy dandy tool.

Again, thank you, Lady Gwen.
