Awww, shucks!

Squee! I am so grateful to have received a "Stylish Blogger" award from the Also Very Stylish Bloggers llevinso and Kate Evangelista. Many thanks! I so appreciate your readership & this warm welcome to the blogging community. (In the true spirit of stylishness, am going to pretend I am even wearing something stylish, instead of sitting here at my laptop in my usual grubby old sweater and jeans).

The rules of this award are:

Thank the person who gave you the award
Thank you, thank you, ladies! Readers, please take the time to check out their wonderful blogs-

llevinso at the Sarcastic Female Literary Circle and Kate Evangelista at Reads, Reviews, Recommends

Post 7 random things about yourself
  1. Oh dear. Well...clearly I am no fashionista (except in the blogging sense). Due in large part to...
  2. Being a stay-at-home mom of two kids, one very large dog, one betta fish, and one surviving sea monkey (for whom you should probably send healing thoughts).
  3. In another life I might have liked to be a librarian (the old fashioned kind) or a country-western singer (also the old fashioned kind).
  4. I've recently gotten a little bit addicted to twitter (feel free to come find me there - @occasionallyzen).
  5. I seem to have stopped going to yoga class though I like to think I will go back someday.
  6. Not big on categorical limitations, for example, Love both Downton Abbey and Battlestar Galactica.
  7. I'm relatively new to blogging, but I just love it & love getting to know some other fabulous bloggers, such as those listed below.

Give the award to 15 other blogs

(Okay, well, not quite 15. But close.)

Contact the blogger & let them know they have won
Getting to work on that. Congratulations, all - keep up the great blogging.


  1. I have a beta fish too! His name is Roo (as in Buckaroo) and he just turned one year old last month :)
    Warm thoughts to your sea monkey!

  2. Thank you very much indeed, JM. I humbly accept, and will spare you the speeches...

    Here's to many happy hours of mutual blog-reading and writing to come!


  3. Thank you! This is probably the first time anyone has referred to anything I do as stylish! I'll be marking it on my calendar. :) Thanks again!

  4. HI there! Thanks for the award! Wow! I'm stylish, I thought I was one of those left-of- center types. I appreciate it!

  5. Cool thanks! Now I get to be one of the "mean girls" and decide who else is stylish. :)

  6. I see I am not alone in being happily surprised at being called "stylish" ;0 Everyone just enjoy it as a compliment to keep up the blogging spirit! And maybe share it with someone new.

  7. Oh wow! Stylish blogger. Thank you for the award. So cool - I feel stylish now!

  8. Thanks so much! You're very sweet. :)My sea monkeys always died, but they were very fun until they did... *goes to google sea monkey kits*. Have a nice day! :)

  9. So welcome! They are very fun! Though not as hardy as one might think....

  10. Aw thank you!! I now need to find 15 blogs to award. :D Sounds like a fun project.

  11. It is kinda fun that way! So welcome, happy blogging!


Thanks for visiting - thoughts welcome.
