Thanks to Lisa Taylor of the Writer’s Block Party for giving me the Inspiring Blog Award. I’m part of a batch of 15 bloggers she honored. I love what she said about my blog: “Okay, besides the fact that this is a great blog with intelligent and humorous posts on all kinds of topics – what part of a grandma that runs and bicycles ISN’T inspiring?”
I’ll take it! Thanks, Lisa!
And in the spirit of blog awards, here are the requirements for being Inspiring: list seven tidbits about yourself, and nominate 15 other bloggers. I’m not sure there’s much more I can reveal that I haven’t already shared in blog posts, but I’ll try.
1. I twist the stem off of apples and pears before eating them.
2. I grew up on a poultry farm in Connecticut.
3. I can drive a tractor.
4. I was an AFS student in Tasmania, Australia the summer between high school and college.
5. I like tablecloths and cloth napkins.
6. I always wear an apron to cook, even if wearing schlumpy clothes.
7. I wrote my first story in third grade. It’s still unpublished.
I’m passing the award onto bloggers I’ve found in the past six months. Check out their blogs!

I checked all the links. I got some weird “404” page not found message on some but you can just go to the blog’s home page and it opens right up. Happy reading and be inspired!
