A Big Thank You

I have been a bit of a lazy girl.... Last week three wonderful ladies bestowed upon me a wonderful blog award and I am just now getting to sending out the thank you.... Please forgive me for my tardiness. 

So first and formost I would like to send a big thank you along with hugs to three wonderful ladies.  First, Antics of A Tameran Witch . A wonderful blog with simply beautiful things.  From her puppy to her wonderful finds, to her artistic ability.  Next, Go out Beneath the Naked Moon .  A bit cool still for that... but spring is fast approaching so who knows.  And lastly, Howling at the Moon .  Mundane musings as she says, yet I find nothing mundane about them.  Thank you again to all of you for your thoughtful ness.

Next I am suppose share seven things about myself so here goes:

1.  I have a terrible weakness for Lindt white chocolate.  It is absolutely my favorite.  One of those things you hide in corner and eat all alone, because its just so good and you don't want to share. 
2.  When I was growing up we seldom celebrated Christmas.  I did not know why until much later in life when I found out that my father had been raised Jehovah Witness although he never shared his faith in any way with us.  After my mother and father divorced, my mother went "overboard" as if making up for all the prior celebrations we had lost.
3.  It has been a lifelong dream of mine to write a best seller book
4.  I am an avid fisherman.  There is nothing better than getting out early in the morning just as the sun is rising, the mist still on the pond.  Tossing your hook in and the silence being broken by the sound of pulling a big one in. 
5.  My favorite cake is Tres Leches Cake.  And I am talking the real kind made by a little old Mexican woman.  :-)  A grandma preferably... they are wonderful.
6.  My favorite holiday is the 4th of July.  Probably because I am such a firework nut.  I  have fireworks in my garage year round.  We shoot one off on special occasions.  I purchase them after the holiday and get some wonderful deals. 
7.  I truly love my blog friends.  There are so many that have taught me so much and many others who have just been a joy to know. 

Now I am suppose to pass this on to 15 other people... Yet it is always so hard for me to choose only 15... so... to all of you... thank you... and if you would like to pick this up and do it... go for it.  It is always fun to find out more about everyone... Happy Monday

I could pretty much copy and paste your list, lady! (Except for the white chocolate and Christmas parts, although my mother did always go overboard, regardless.)

Congrats on your award!
