Liebster Award

It's me again.  I wanted to post this before I leave for Colorado.
Jo Anne of A Pocketful of Blue http://apocketfulofblue.blogspot.com/ nominated me for the Liebster Award.  It is an award for blogs with 200 or less followers and/or for newer bloggers.  She said she cheated a little.
Anywhoo....thanks JoAnne.   (Blogger is giving me fits today.......it wouldn't let me see my reading list)
The first thing I am supposed to do is tell you 11 things about myself that you may not know.
Since I am pretty personal on my blog this is hard.

I.   I grew up in a little town with a population of 100 counting dogs and cats.
2.   I love being a Grammy......sorry, I know that you know that but just thought I would
       remind you.
3.   I hate pickles.  I don't even want them touching any food on my plate.
4.   We adopted a special needs little boy when he was five.
5.   I live on an old Christmas Tree Farm
6.   When I grow up I want to be The Fairy Godmother at Disney.
7.   I want to live in a sweet little cottage by the water.
8.   When I was little I made chocolate chip cookies out of mud and my brother ate one.
9.   I have Celiac disease and have to eat a Gluten-Free diet.
10. I cry at airports when other people that I don't know are saying their goodbyes.
11. I am a clown, yes a real one.

Whew, that was hard.
Now I am supposed to nominate 5 other fabulous blogs.
So here are the ones that I nominated for the award.

Hi Debby, Have a great trip and enjoy your grandchildren. The fall weather has been beautiful. I can remember flying over Colorado and seeing the beautiful Yellow Aspen trees down below. I have enjoyed reading your previous post and thanks for stopping by. Take care. Hugs and Prayers Your Missouri Friend.

I loved reading about you but now I can't like you... You are a clown... I am so afraid of clowns I have been known to get up and leave church crying because they had clowns in for the little kids! I had a bad experience with one as a child and it scarred me for life!

I think you would make a fabulous Disney Fairy Godmother!

Blessings

Linda

BTW, just kidding, I will still like you even though you are a clown.

The pitcher is very pretty, Debby. Love the color and it looks great on your shelf with all the other treasures. You did well.
