Kreativ Blogger Award

Many thanks to Kiirstin of A Book a Week for awarding not just my blog, my daughter's blog and my niece's blog the Kreativ Blogger award! I am now supposed to list seven of my favorite things and pass the award on to seven other bloggers. So here goes, a fairly random list of some of my favorite things in no particular order:

1. Reading outside in the morning while having breakfast and drinking a cup of hot coffee. I particularly love it when I happen to glance up and see some deer - or maybe a fox - wandering though the back yard.
2. Reading to my children - any book, any time, anywhere.
3. Making pottery - particularly when it comes out they way I'm hoping it will!
4. Writing - particularly when it's a good day and the words come without too much struggle.
5. Going on vacation and spending uninterrupted fun time with my husband and kids. It's always especially fun when my brother and his family join us!
6. Photography
7. Long walks on the beach

I have difficulty choosing from among all the blogs I love to pass the award on to. Basically, if you're in my reader list on my profile page, this one's for you! Consider yourselves awarded. I just wish I weren't so far behind in my reader - these weeks away are killer. I just start to get caught up, and then whoosh, back to 500+ posts to read. Still, it's good reading!

Oh, and I just found out that Melissa from Melissa's Bookshelf just awarded me this award, too! Thanks so much. :-)


  1. Congrats Darla! I'll give you some bird seed as a gift ;)

  2. Congrats! I didn't know you made pottery. Would you be willing to share some pics?

  3. Mmm, coffee and foxes. That does sound perfect. The biggest wildlife I've seen in my backyard is a large, hungry cottontail. Could use a fox!

    Re: the reader -- I have to admit, I gave up when I saw I had 300 posts to read, and marked them all read. Just couldn't handle the three digit number!

  4. Is number 1 your rest bit?

  5. Margo - haha! I can always use a little more birdseed. :-)

    Anna - I will take some pictures and do a post. I've only been doing it for a few years, so don't expect too much, though!

    Kiirstin - I think the little bunnies would beg to differ. :-) I am very tempted to mark all as read - but I'm afraid I might miss something!

    Kinnie - that would be my "respite" - but yes, that is absolutely it!

  6. Congrats on the award!

    I would love to see some pottery pictures! That would be great!

  7. Thanks, Serena - I will try to get some up soon. :-)
