Mother’s Day Presents: Versatile Blogger Award & and an iPod nano!

What a nice Mother’s Day gift: I’ve been nominated to receive the Versatile Blogger Award from adollyciousirony, who blogs at

I think the term aptly describes my blog–  I never know what I’m going to write about!

And speaking of Mother’s Day and versatilty: My daughter prestented me with an iPod Nano, it’s lime green, like the award above- and she loaded it with 250 songs! All will be surprises to me.

I’ve been remiss in Mother’s Day posting. Here’s my post from last year: Wisdom of My Mother. 

Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

And thank you Dolly for the award!

  2. Happy Mother’s Day. Congratulations on the Award and the gift. I was pleasantly surprised to get something I had not thought of to get myself. A bottle of Chanel # 5. It is one of the few perfumes that do not send me into a fit of sneezing.
