Yea! I've been awarded the MeMe Blog Award from Jules over at Naturally Jules, so I get to talk about me.

The rules to this award are as follows:

1) share 7 tidbits about yourself
2) share this MeMe Blog Award with 7 blogger friends

So, where to start...lets see...
1. I see my life's "cup" as always half full.
2. I am a very shy introvert.
3. I was drunk the first time I met my future mother-in-law 34 years ago and I haven't been drunk since...feeling mighty fine maybe, but not drunk.
4. I am a "yogurtier" ( I make my own yougurt) and while hubby will eat it only after it's been sweetened three teaspoons of jam, I eat it "straight up."
5. I love reading the morning newspaper but I have to read it "in order" from beginning to end, so don't mess it up on me...same with the Reader's Digest, I have to read it from cover to cover and not skip around.
6. After years of wearing nothing but sneakers with orthonics due to foot problems, I am now able to wear more stylish shoes and have developed a passion for them and have amassed a small collection already.
7. I have a thing for purple although I recognize that my passion for purple is directly proportional to my sister's distaste for the color, and I will wear it when ever I'm around her just to make her "see purple."

I am passing on the MeMe award to:
1. My daughter Grace at Graceful Yoga and Simplicity because;
I love her
she sparked my interest in blogging
she answers all my blogger techie questions
and because she gave me the "One Lovely Blog Award" back in April when I was a fleshling blogger and didn't know what the blog award protocol was. It is now proudly displayed on my side bar, and I sincerely apologize to her and the 15 bloggers that didn't receive the reward due to my stupidity, but I do promise to brush up on my blogging etiquette.
2. This Guys Journey because Bret tells it as he sees it and he had me with his post Religious Intolerance and The Journey of Frank
3. Dawn of an Old Age because I enjoy Dawn's photos and musings..
4. A Glimpse Into Midlife because at 52, I have an interest in everything "midlife" and because Betty has a daughter named Marisa.
5. Delights of The Heart for Marilyn's insight and her love of linens.
6. Jujubes Coastal Cottage, a newly discovered blog but I'm liking all the ideas Marlene has for transforming discards into new treasures.,
7. And finally, Mel at From Clutter To Shine for having me convinced that "I am a goddess."


  1. Awe, thank you so much Marisa! Everytime I see your name in my mailbox, I´m excited, because I love that name! :)
    I love this award, because I love to do meme´s! So mine will be up next week.
    Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  2. congrats on the award.. i'm a "cup half full" person too...(well not so much at the moment...but)

  3. Funny about the color purple. LOL! I'll have to get instructions from you on how to make ones own yogurt. I love yogurt and I have trouble finding brands that don't use an over abundance of sugar.

  4. Thanks for linking to me for MeMe. I will try to do something one day next week, but not sure about passing it on. I use to make yogurt when my children were little. Then one day I came home and my son loved it so much he ate the whole quart with a ton of jam, there went my starter and I never started it again. Maybe one of these days I should start it again. My son still eats lots of yogurt.

  5. Congrats! And yum, new blogs to check out.

  6. what an interesting list "yogurtier" sound interesting. I love yogurt for breakfast.

  7. thank you marisa! i have to say you make your own yogurt? i love yogurt. you are my hero. especially if you eat it unsweetened. the orderly paper reading is not for me though ....i always have to check the obits first before i read anything else. i haven't been listed yet, but somedays i wonder.....
    if i can get off my lazy butt, i will do a posting this week thank you again, friend! xo

  8. Oooooooh!!! Thank you EVER so much!! I'm a bit behind with my reading....sorry to be to tardy!!

    And OF COURSE you are a goddess...especially since you love purple!!
