One Lovely Blog Award


I'd like to blame it on living so close to places like this...
(this kind of reminds me of an infinity pool--well sort of)
 
 
Or maybe on my constant need to meet cuties like these
(howdy feathered ones)...
 
but I can't.

The fact is I am just imperfect and blew it.

You may have noticed the One Lovely Blog Award over to the side here >
and you may have even seen this post from way back in autumn of 2013
http://aimeeonthemountainside.blogspot.com/2013/10/o-perfect-day.html
and wondered why Aimee would all of a sudden share a whole bunch of trivia with you all.

Well it seems like somehow I had a brain freeze or ? and
 I neglected to tie all that trivia to
the lovely award that Miss Willow of
 http://whimsywillowsfarm.blogspot.com/
bestowed on me a couple of months before that.
I did have good intentions though:)

May I now take a moment of your time and THANK Miss Willow properly--
along with her two fav blogging hens of course!
And, if you haven't yet had the pleasure of visiting HoneyBee, Cricket and all of the awesome residents of Whimsy Willow Farm I highly recommend a trip there--
you won't be sorry!

And now, since it's been awhile, I will share with you a bit more trivia---
(you can find the original trivia by following the "O Perfect Day" link above)
just because it seems the right thing to do:)

And THANK YOU, thank you Miss Willow for your support,  the One Lovely Blog Award
and for all the times you've made me smile and giggle these past months:)
Bless you!

Aimee Trivia

1.  I am very shy,
 except when I am not.
Then you get to meet extroverted Aimee:)

2. I am totally and completely in love with horses. When I was younger, I had a horse collection filled with lovely steeds with names like Little Con, Misty, Jupiter and so on. In my early 20s, I bestowed this collection on the daughter of a friend who also loved horses. Sometimes though, I dream of Little Con and his friends coming back for a visit. I also, as you may know, owned a real horse--actually a Welsh pony. If I owned one today I would be tempted to choose a Fjord horse. 

3. I am related (distantly) to at least one president and one of
my ancestors appears on a census sheet with another president.

4. I am Celtic, German, French and English with perhaps a bit of Danish thrown in.
I also like to say my heart is Norwegian. One of my goals is to get my kitchen organized so I can cook some of the recipes I have wanted to try--things like lefse which makes me hungry
 just thinking of it:)

5. I've read the entire Bible through several times and would like to do that again. However
 this year I am concentrating on just the New Testament.
I always find new things every time I read it.

6. The farthest west I've been was to Hawaii (Kailua-Kona); the farthest east was to Colorado, The farthest north was probably Jasper in Alberta, Canada and the farthest south was Ensenada, Mexico. Mexico was the birthplace of Little Con and Misty (of #2 fame--LOL).

7. I love learning and can spend hours on the Internet (as I used to spend with encyclopedias as a teenager). I have a special love for history and family history (doesn't matter if it is mine or a friend or relative). In fact I love to surprise friends and family with little tidbits of their family heritage once in awhile:)

And now I would LOVE to pass on this One Lovely Blog Award to seven or so other bloggers.

 
MANY of you come to mind that have fabulous lovely blogs filled with sunshine, mountains,
yummy recipes, flowers, grandkids, furry ones, crafts and more...
but I am not sure if you participate in blog awards or not.
Let me try and find my "thinking cap"
(stored during our very HOT summer of course)
and I'll be back:)

Blessings,
Aimee

Great photo of the birds! I enjoyed reading the facts about you! Awesome that you've read the Bible through. I share your love for history and family history! To which president are you distantly related?

Sam said...

Hi Aimee, thank you. That was really nice - we're glad that you shared a little bit about yourself. Helps to round out the very nice "picture" that we have of you as a person. Hmm...we noticed that you like to learn things. Well Aimee, have we got a web-site for you. https://www.khanacademy.org/ They have everything, science, physics, history, finance...you get the picture. Catch up with you in a few hours :)

It's fun to learn more about you Aimee. Those pelicans are quite the sight on that beach. I've never seen so many of them together.

Linda W. said...

Congrats on your award. You do indeed have a lovely blog.

Teresa Kasner said...

@Bethany~
Thanks! It was really exciting seeing so many of them! If I wasn't such a procrastinator I could have read the Bible many more times. I knew you loved history but didn't realize you loved family history also. I am distantly related to Pres. George Bush.
Blessings, Aimee

@Sam~
Thanks! Ah--you are most kind. I do love learning things. I will have to check out the link you provided when I get a chance. I am trying to be very good this month and get my tasks done before I play:)
Blessings, Aimee
