Seven Interesting Facts About Me

Yesterday, I was nominated by JYOTSNA SHENOY of Artpsycho for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you for the award and for following me.

I’ve had a number of new followers over the past few weeks (waving hi!!!) so I’m probably overdue for one of these posts.

Here we go, 7 interesting facts about me:

  1. I collect antiques and use them in my everyday life. (My hubby does so, too!) Yes, I’ve served the finest Kraft dinner on Great-Grandma’s fine china. Latest antique? This sugar scuttle with the original spoon:
  2. I used to own a horse! Alas, my horsey days are over, but it was some of the best years of my life. Here’s an OLD pic of me giving pony rides. My youngest sis is on my horse, Snickers. The little girl in pink is my god-daughter…who is now a grown, married woman! Wow, how time flies…Snickers
  3. I talk to my animals, like my cat Steve, and they answer me. LOL (Click the CC button on the video for my interpretation of Steve’s answers)

4. I read. A LOT. Audiobooks, eBooks, dead tree books…I love them all! This year, I’m at 54 books and counting…screenshot-36.png

5. I dabble at creating artwork:

6. I started writing again, after a nearly 2-decade hiatus, mainly because the Twilight series of books ticked me off! (I ranted about them for WEEKS afterword, and yet I read the entire series. Sigh!!!) That book series also led me to the wonderful world of young adult literature. So, while I didn’t care for Stephanie Meyer’s stories, I am truly grateful that she wrote them. She changed my path by sharing her creations.

Some of my Writing Journals



7. I play at photography, especially in cemeteries, but I also love nature pics:

  1. This is outstanding! I’m so glad that you took your time to put this up, and how?! So darn amazing!!! Even I love reading books, I am an animal lover, I have a fetish for artworks at different levels and I adore nature. I love the fact that you turned the rules a bit at the end to allow freeflow for readers to make their own attempt at this. Will follow your blog and your work to my best and hope to stay in touch with you! Love from India! ^_^ ❤ ❤

    1. I’m so glad you’re back online!!! The sugar scuttle was only $3 at a garage sale and still had its spoon. (The spoons tend to get lost over time.) I often think Steve is more human than cat. He’s the most vocal cat I’ve ever met. I truly think he tries to “talk” to me. (I can only guess at his meaning.) This morning he got right in my face to “sing” me his “wake up” song. Alas, vocal cats aren’t nearly as much fun at dark-o-clock. LOL
