A kind blogger buddy gave me an award this week.
Thank you Jerralea from Jerralea's Journey!
I love the 'sisterhood' idea, because there really is a unique friendship that evolves on Blogwarts where women share their lives and hearts. It's a wonderful place full of estrogen and chocolate. I try to visit at least twice a week.
The homework that comes with this award is the 7/7 assignment: share 7 things about yourself, and then pass the award on to 7 blogging sisters. I figure there's a lot of information about yours truly all over this blog, so, instead, I'm going to post 7 pictures - snippets of life here in the Ballpark. There might be a quiz involved. Update: Quiz is now closed.
1. What are these?
a. the names of my cats
b. the names of my children
c. the names of the hurricanes that ripped through central Florida in 2004. We had to get a new roof, which now has a leak, but I'm not bitter. OK, maybe I am.
d. the names of the sandwiches at Hurricane Grill
2. What is this?
a. my favorite sandwich
b. a sandwich my husband loves, but I hate
c. Meryl Streep's favorite sandwich
d. the ex-clown's favorite sandwich
3. What are these?
a. fancy paint stirrers
b. crooked rulers
c. mummy fingers I uncovered on an archaeological dig in Malaysia
d. Halloween sugar cookies
5. Who is this?
a. the ex-clown
b. Miss Curly-Cute with a shrimp on her nose
c. my high-school graduation picture
d. four-year old Drew Barry's mug shot
6. What is this?
a. a flower lasso and some colorless Rubik's cubes
b. a Home Depot project that went awry
c. I have no idea
d. a 9 (the flowers) 11 (the twin towers) tribute created by our daughter's high school students. I welled up when I first saw it.
7. What is this?
a. a quilt I made, but it had too many arms
b. a potholder
c. last year's swimsuit
d. a never worn Coldwater Creek cotton jacket I'm giving away (the tag says size 16, but it runs small; I'd say it's a 14.)
There ya' go! Put your answers in the comments box, and the first one to get all the right answers wins the jacket - if you want it. If you don't want it, I'll send you some Ballpark brownies. If you don't want the jacket, or the brownies, you can still put your answers in the comments box, and discover how smart you are when I share the answers in the next post.
As to passing on the award to 7 bloggers, that's like asking a mom to pick her favorite kid. I enjoy so many blogs, I'm going to offer the award to any reader who wants it. I've seen a few bloggers do that recently, and I'm stealing the idea. I can't pick just 7, and you can't make me.
Thank you, Jerralea, for thinking of me and giving me the opportunity to unload that jacket.
Who will win??!?!?! The suspense is worse than waiting for the last season of Lost.
