"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Bloggy Awards and Tags from Bloggy Friends

Eli over at Flutterby Patch tagged me a few weeks ago so I thought I'd play along. I'm supposed to share 7 random facts about myself, so here goes:

1) I always put plain m & m's into my popcorn when I go to the movies.

2) I am a bit claustrophobic and germ-o-phobic (I have hand sanitizers everywhere)

3) Big things that aren't where they are supposed to be freak me out. (sunken ships, that scene in Planet of the Apes where the Statue of Liberty is in the sand, the recent airplane being pulled out of the Hudson...stuff like that. Weird, I know. OK enough of my phobias...(really that's all)

4) Like Eli, I can relate to her multi-tasking, multi-thinking brain. I have so many ideas going around in my head sometimes that I need to write them down just to clear space for new ones! Hence, (don't you just love that word?) the table full of projects that I have started and need to be finished.

5) There are always at least 4 wee beasties (not including my husband *LOL*!) on my bed every night. Corgis and/or kitties.

6) Whenever I am in the midst of a painting or craft project, the entire house can fall down around me, dishes can pile in the sink, and Godzilla could walk in and I would just keep on working. Hence the late night suppers around here sometimes. (Sorry, honey)

7) I am a serious chocolate lover.

So there you go.

I am tagging the following bloggy friends:

Corgi Hill Farm (aka Princess of Pink)

Corgi Pants

The Senakams, Corgi + 2

A Corgi in Southern California

Corgi News

and just when you think all of my tags have a Corgi in their title....

Thanks for joining the tagging game Cathy. Loved your 7 things especially the one about things not being where they should be. Oh dear, you've got me started now, I'll be seeing the same. Love to the furry friends. Eli

thanks for tagging me, Cathy, I'll probably do it as part of an entry down the line; I'm thinking I might have done this before on a blog of mine.......

I like how you put M/M's in popcorn! I bet it tastes good!

congrats on your awards!

What a fun tag, Cathy. I loved reading YOUR random facts!!! I think I am pretty much right there with you on all of them--cept the M & Ms in popcorn--I've never tried that, but I WILL NOW!! Sounds delightful! If we didn't keep the door to our bedroom closed, we'd have 2 cats and dog in there with us. Unfortunately, the cats don't curl up and sleep--they pace and rattle blinds, so we shut 'em out! How nice that your babies curl up and go to sleep!

Hope you're having a great weekend! Dana
