This Is Me--2024 A to Z Theme

My A to Z Themes in the past have covered a range of topics and for 2024 the theme is a personal retrospective that I call "I Coulda Been" which is in reference to my job and career arc over my lifetime. I'll be looking at all sorts of occupations that I have done or could have done. Maybe you've done some of these too!

The Circle of Friends Award


I received an award from Mom, whose blog ALWAYS A MOM  provides such homespun insights. Now she's not my Mom, but if I were a kid again I'd like to have a Mom just like.  I am so honored to have this award passed my way.

So the way this goes is I am supposed to list 5 things that I like to do and then pass it on to 5 more in my cirlce of blogger friends:

1.   I like to take long road trips.

2.  I like to listen to good rock and roll while I'm driving.

3.  I like to listen to chamber music by Schubert when I am writing.

4.  I like to write when I'm not reading.

5.  I like to watch movies at home a couple nights a week.

If you have never looked at any of the following sites you may want to check them out. I am going to pass this on to these blogger friends:

1.   I don't know anything about beading and this is a beading blog, but Sig sure knows how to write an entertaining piece.  Among my favorite blogs.

2.   This a blog that has an interesting ongoing story.

3.    Judy has two good blogs but you can start with this one. Judy has a lot of friends in the blog community, but I didn't see an award on her site so here's one.

4.    Photography blog.  John's kind of like a friend-- well actually he's my nephew and he gave me some very helpful hints when I started my blog.

5.   Tamika is so nice.  She always has something encouraging to say in her comments.  She writes beautifully and if you've never read what she has to say check out her blog right now.

Keep supporting each other and telling other people about some of the wonderful blogs out there.


  1. This is a great award! Thank you! I do appreciate it.

  2. Congrats! Thanks for some very interesting looking links :) They'll be fun to check out.

  3. Lee, thank you for your encouraging loyalty to my blog - it is always good to hear from you. Thank you so much for the scribbler award as well - what an honour! I do think that is a word that best describes myself and my blog - it is literaly my scratch pad and scribble spot.

    Thank you very much and congrats on your award, it is well deserved.

  4. Thanks Lee! You are a blessing indeed! I always enjoy dropping in and checking out your insightful posts. You have a true gift for above.

  5. And my thanks to each of you! It's really great how this blogging community supports one another in their endeavors.

    I hope you will all read my Wed 12/9 entry about author Athol Dickson. He has won several awards for his books and I thought he gave me a good interview. Rachelle Gardner is his agent and I got his book through her --- I reviewed the book today (Tues 12/8)
