Blog Award

Okay, I wanted to go ahead and post the blog award from an 'anxious' reader, Silly Pony, who writes the blog, Diary of an Over Anxious Horse Owner Blog. Thank you bunches! Another great surprise! I appreciate being included in your blog reading. 
There are some requirements to accepting this so I'll copy and paste that here and then go through the list.

Okay, now seven things about myself...
  1. I do not like to go shopping. 
  2. I have way more fabric than I'll ever sew.
  3. I still prefer my old SLR 'film' camera to all the digital cameras I've owned. 
  4. It took me a year to figure out how to sync my bluetooth to my phone and use it. 
  5. I have blue eyes and my favorite color is blue. Coincidence?
  6. I hate to sweep so I vacuum and there is no carpeting in my home (too many dogs). 
  7. I have always wanted to be able to sing but sadly I couldn't carry a tune if it only weighed an ounce and I could store it in a locket around my neck!
