monday’s in the house: daisy award…

In the midst of Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, I was surprised and delighted to learn that my blog had been bestowed a Daisy Award for blogging by Lee A Jackson. Lee is a talented photographer and blogger I’ve come to know through the blogging community that is WordPress. Click on over.

I feel honored and humbled.

Now, there are some responsibilities that go with accepting a Daisy Award, which I dispatch below.

1. Display the award certificate on your website.

I have done so with pleasure. Check.

2. Announce your win with a post and include a link to whoever presented your award.

With delight. Check.

3. Present 7 awards to deserving bloggers. Create a post linking to them and drop them a comment to tip them off.

This is in no particular order, for they are all very different and talented bloggers.

With enthusiasm. Check.

4. Post 7 interesting facts about yourself.

Seven? As many as that? Hm. Okay. Here goes.

  • I like my onions grilled.
  • There is no such thing as too many mushrooms.
  • I learned to swim when my daughter learned to swim.
  • Chips trump chocolate. Chocolate trumps vegetables. Wine trumps all.
  • I don’t jog. Ever.
  • I secretly lust after farm machinery. Big wheels. Yes, I’m outing myself.
  • I consider “camping” a bad word.*

In the spirit of the award. Check.

*Yes. Yes, I know. I love Canadian Hiking Photography. It’s the photography, man. I don’t actually venture into the wild. With a tent, a tick remover, or anything spelled DEET. In the spirit of full disclosure.

Thank you, again, Lee, for the Daisy Award. I’m honored.

Hello, Monday!
