An Award and Many Links.

First let me welcome four new followers of Desert Canyon Living, an international group of people, I'm happy say: Cathy from AustraliaCarmen and Alfonso from SpainCatherine from France, and Ed and Mona from the Philippines. I have enjoyed reading Ed and Mona's blog about dogs for a while and I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

I got this Stylish Blogger Award from my friend Hopeful whose blog I always enjoy reading. Thank you so much for this fabulous award!

I happily accept the award and in order to do so, I have to first link back to the person who gave me the award, which I did above. Then I must tell you seven things about myself that you may not know. I picked some less serious things and here they are:

  1. I recently read that Kim of Golden Pines is 6 ft tall. Great I thought, a fellow tall woman. I was once 6 feet tall, as well, now I think I'm about five eleven and a half. We do shrink, so it's good to be ahead of the game.
  1. I now live in the desert mountains of California, but I love the ocean and all waters. My husband and I sailed for many years and had a boat in Marina del Rey, California.
  1. I love my dogs and dogs in general, but I have a great admiration for cats. I like that they are so easy to live with and I love their calming nature as they snuggle and purr on your lap, your chest, or wherever they decide they want to be. I have lived with many cats, Sindbad was my last. He died in 2006 at the age of 18.
  1. My favorite sport as a young person was speed skating and I was pretty good at it. I also liked to ride horses.
  1. Donkeys are my favorite animals. I have never met an animal so smart, so kind, so fun, so loving, so protective, and on and on. 
  1. While I don't love to cook and I don't have that magic touch, I can make some pretty good meals, as evidenced by the chicken I so bragged about a couple of blog posts away.
  1. I love to play Scrabble, other games, solve crosswords, puzzles, and quizzes.
Now I'm supposed to share this award with 15 bloggers. What a difficult task. I decided to forward it to a few new blogger friends and some older ones that I believe I never shared an award with earlier. Some of you may have already received this award, if so just take mine without following all the above directions:
