Wow, Francine in Retirement nominated me for three blog awards: The Versatile Blogger, Sunshine Award and Liebster Blog (by the way, “liebster” is German and means “most favorite”), and Maria de Suede has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger. Thank you so much, Francine, thank you, Maria. So I guess I’ll have to tell things about myself, answer questions and pass the awards on to other bloggers.
The Versatile Blogger Award asks that I tell 7 things about myself and nominate 15 other bloggers.
7 things about myself: 1. I used to be a vegetarian for 35 years. 2. Now I am a vegan. 3. I love white roses. 4. I love hats. 5. I travel a lot. 6. I love Puccini operas. 7. I love to read (real books, not iPad or Kindle).
