Stylish Blogger Award

I have been awarded! Yay!
Shelley HW awarded me the stylish blogger award. I have never heard of such awards before, but I find this very cool. Wow, that was informative – “very cool.” Anyway, you know I’m excited. *squeal*

I must list 7 things about myself. Here goes:

1.) My dream is to become a published novelist.

2.) I love to knit. I have a whole drawer of knitted items…like lopsided sweaters and too small shirts, haha.

3.) I also love to make jewelry, especially using hemp.

4.) I love to paint with water colors and acrylics.

5.) I love to drink green tea. I usually have at least 1 cup of iced green tea a day. Yummmmm!

6.) I always keep a book in my purse and often find opportunities to read it in random places.

7.) I love life. It takes you to the most amazing places and brings you the most remarkable people. *loves*

Thank you, Shelley HW. 

Now, for the seven people I pass the award onto…

I received a copy of THE THIRD MIRACLE: AN ORDINARY MAN, A MEDICAL MYSTERY, AND A TRIAL OF FAITH by Bill Briggs, from GoodReads and Crown Publishers. The letter is dated February, so it should have come sooner. There has been a lot of snow here lately, and the mail carrier left the package on the deck where it became covered. My uncle discovered it while he was shoveling.

I enjoyed the book, but it was a little dry. When I sat down, the words didn’t flow so well that I forgot the time. Rather, I would glimpse ahead to see how many more pages I had left. Overall, though, this is a very powerful book about the Catholic faith. Now that I’m done, I am passing it on to my devout grandmother.
