Today, my heart is happy and gratitude is bubbling up inside of me. Watching this beautiful nature video compounded these feelings seven-fold. Makes me so thankful to have a Creator who orchestrates the wonderful and mysterious movements of life on earth. 

Another bit of loveliness came to me today via Shari of Shari's Crochet Handmade Gifts. I am so honored to have received this award. Shari's blog is a real treasure, so do make sure you go and check her marvelous crochet out sometime soon. 

Seven random bits of me:

1 -  I get fresh socks when I go to bed as I cannot abide the thought of wearing the same pair of socks that I've traipsed around in all day to bed. I think I may be a smidge OCD.

2 - I am a big sap. I cry not just for sad movies, but especially sweet and happy ones. The occasional commercial has been known to get me misty-eyed as well.

3 - I wish that the fashions of the forties and fifties were in full swing today so that I could wear those beautiful cinched waist dresses with the tea length poofy skirts like Debbie Reynolds in Tammy and the Bachelor. Style then was so elegant and chic!

4 - I am terribly allergic to horses among many other things, but horses are the all out worst which saddens me as I always used to love petting the neighbor's horses. Their muzzles are the sweetest kind of warm softness. 

5 - Wreckless driving makes me very mad, very fast. I probably honk my horn at stupid drivers far more than is wise to do. I'm currently working to curb this bad habit.

6 - If I ever became filthy rich, I would go to the spa at least once a week for a massage and pedicure. 

7 - Before I taught myself to crochet when I was 11, I had been nutty for cross stitch. I still consider the BHG Cross Stitch compendium I have to be one of the best cross stitch books ever.

Now, to nominate some bloggers I admire. Here they are in random order. If any of you lovely ladies do not participate, I totally understand, but know I thought of you as having one lovely blog! ;-) 

Wishing a lovely day to all you wonderful folks!
