Liebster Award

Well, okay, I guess I have gone missing. I think I got burned out with too much blogging last month. 
I may as well go ahead and ask for a blog vacation. May I?

However, I had to pop in to thank Judi for nominating me for the Liebster Award. This is as award for us little guys with fewer than 200 followers. Thank you, Judi!

My list of Liebster Award recipients:
Trees & Turtles
The Harpy
12 Swatches
Project: Stash
Caffeine Girl
Go and visit them--you'll be glad you did!

And here's the requisite five random things you don't know about me:

1. I used to be kinda famous for my potato salad.

2. I have a fear of peeing in outhouses (with their black hole where surely lives a heinous, nasty monster), despite having gone to many singings ("sangins") and dinners-on-the-ground in Alabama and Georgia with my grandparents when I was a child, and those always came with outhouses.
Seems like I would have gotten past this.

3. I once performed a scene from The Sound of Music as Maria--the one with the nuns singing "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?"

4. I have always thought of myself as a bit of a flibbertigibbet and a clown. Typecasting?

5. I once rode a camel in Israel.

Thanks again to Judi--this was fun!
I'll be back next week--that will be enough of a break from blogging, I'm sure.
Have a good weekend!

In high school, I played the Sister who was always trying to stand up for Maria. I have both fond and not-so-fond memories of that time.

Oh, yes, Bonnie, that character was the sweet one...just like you!

Thanks so much for the award! I loved learning these five things about you, and I bet you're still famous for your potato salad.

Our family reunions were always on the old "homestead" near the Mississippi/Louisiana border, and I have to concur with your fear of outhouses. I would always have to go in the middle of the night, and I was terrified!

I played Leisl in college!

Evelyn, you're welcome, and I'll bet I could still whip up a good batch of potato salad.

Stephanie, I never knew we had so much in common! Outhouses in the middle of the night--never! What a nightmare.
