Versatile Blogger Nomination

I feel bad in that it has taken me so long to write this post.  First I was sick, then I was traveling and then I was sick again.  No excuse, and I want everyone to know how honoured I feel in receiving a Versatile Blogger Nomination, not once, but twice!

Sonel over at Sonel’s Photographic Corner is a dear soul and was kind enough to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award just about three weeks ago.  I was busy preparing for my trip and then traveling, so I haven’t been able to properly thank her for this act of kindness.  

Then, Rosina at, Sobre la Traduccion, nominated me as well.  What an honour to be recognized by these two lovely ladies.

The Versatile Blogger Award is all about to introduce bloggers to each other and to promote quality blogs that the awardees and their readers might not been discovered otherwise.

“Versatile Blogger” Award Rules:  

  1. Post a picture of the award.
  2. Thank the award giver.
  3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers about this and tell them by leaving comments on their blog.

As I see it, I’ve been nomiated twice so I will have to double up on all of the rules.  So here are the 14 Random facts about myself :

  1. I have a complete irrational fear of heights – especially heights over water
  2. I love lilies, but can’t stand the smell of white “Easter” lilies as this reminds me of the passing of my Grandmother
  3. I am one of the rare people on the planet who can say they were born in a National Park
  4. I started out at a science teacher, but have morphed into a humanities teacher.  In the process I realized I have a passion for history
  5. I love my laugh lines – they mean I have smiled A LOT
  6. I own a fawn pug and a white marshmallow pug
  7. I am left handed, but can only use right handed scissors
  8. I took so many photos with my first DSLR that I melted the processor!
  9. I have been married for going on 15 years, but I have been with my husband for more than 22 years
  10. Spring is my favourite season because I love the smell of the earth and my fingers can get back into the soil of my gardens
  11. I own just about every book every written by Stephen King
  12. I am an “Apple” addict, but do most of my blogging and photography processing on a PC
  13. I have no favourite colour
  14. I am amazed each and every day by the following my wee blog has received
