An Award and A Meme

Robin of Around the Island awarded me with this lovely Superior Scribbler award. I rather like it; he’s got this cute determined look on his face.

I’m going to pass it on to Lorri at (she should work for Israel “hasbara” (public relations), she would do a much better job than whoever is in charge now), Michelle at RamblingWoods (learn about Benji the goose and view her beautiful upstate New York world), Shimshonit (who writes on motherhood and living in Israel and 1960’s/1970’s music), and Ralph aka Airhead55 (who is often posting pictures of bygone years; I love the nostalgia).

And then yesterday, when life was just as crazy as ever, I get this comment on my blog:
u have been tagged

Doesn’t that look like spam to you? I nearly marked it as spam, and then I noticed the name, Hadassah. Not a lot of spammers have the name “Hadassah”. Sure enough, it wasn’t spam, but Hadassah Sabo, delivering a meme to seven bloggers!

Here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. (done)
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird. (done)
3. Tag 7 people (if possible) at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. (done)
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs. (in process)

Seven facts about me:
1. I love pottery (I did it for ten years), and I look forward to the day I can do it again.

2. I love to ski.

3. Painting helps me keep my sanity.

4. My favorite of all the websites I have designed is The Highland Park Public Library.

And a favorite post for each of my three kids (facts 5, 6 and 7):

And the lucky winners are:

TriLCat, who is on bed rest and hardly ever blogs, but maybe this will coax her
Esser Agaroth

I feel so accomplished, now that I’ve finished this post!

Ilana-Davita says

You see you were one of the people I wanted to tag, along with Baila, but then I saw that "In the Pink" had tagged both of you!
Nice to include photos of your kids.

Leora says

I was going to make seven pictures, one per fact, but I like how the three kids stand out. It makes the whole post worthwhile (do you know how many links I had to check? I felt like I was writing a blog carnival).

Lorri says

Thank you, Leora!

I will pass this forward tomorrow, as I've already created three posts today...

Thanks, again! :)

Lorri says

Oh, I meant to mention...I like how your children's posts are arranged!

Lion of Zion says

" I look forward to the day I can do it again."

what do you mean again?

Leora says

LoZ, I did pottery for ten years. I had a hard time finding a casual studio in New Jersey. It's not as popular here as it is in Cambridge, MA. So I would have to go to a community college, and that would take a lot of time, because it would taking a college class.

The Jewish Side says

Cute how you put your children as fact 5,6 and 7.

I like you you made children colorful in the library website.

and that is a great designed site!

"but I like how the three kids stand out. It makes the whole post worthwhile"

I agree!
