Last week, I was given an award by Dianna at  These Days of Mine called the ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award.  Thank you, Dianna, for choosing me as a recipient and for thinking my blog content is worthy of this award!

To accept this ABC Award, you are to list 26 things about yourself in alphabetical order.   So here we go:

A - Animal lover

B - Bird watcher... I love to watch them, listen to them and photograph them.

C - Christian.  And a country girl at heart, living in a small town.  

D - Determined. 

E - Easy going. 

F - Fun-loving.  I love to laugh and refuse to let growing older change that!

G - Generous.  Girly.  I've always been girly as opposed to tomboyish.

H - Hardheaded.  Yes, I admit it!

I - many things. 

J - Jeans...I wear them all the time when I'm not in capris or sweats. 

K- Kind-hearted.

L - Loving

M- Music lover...especially the oldies.

N - Nice.  Nearsighted. 

O - Oldies lover...I love old things, people and music

P - Photographer wanna be...I love taking photos and have so much to learn.

Q- Quiet...most of the time.

R - Reader...I love books, magazines and blogs

S - Simple...I love simple things (see side bar).

T - Tidy...I like my home clean and hate clutter.  (Don't look in my closets right now!)

U - Understanding

V - Veggie lover

W - Wife, of nearly 41 years to a lineman

X - X-rayed...I've had a lot of them

Y - Young at heart

Z - Zilch...I couldn't think of a word for Z so I'll use Zzzz.  I love a good night's sleep and they are rare lately.

I must now pass this award on to 10 other bloggers.  These bloggers all have great content, their photos are wonderful...check them out.   Here they are, in no particular order:

Marti's Musings

Let Your Light Shine

The Adventures of Old Alice

My Loves, My Life

Grandma Barb's This and That

View From The Castle

The Brick Street Bungalow

Chatty Crone

Cow Patty Surprise

Aunt C's Place

If any of you I've named don't wish to participate or don't accept blog awards, that's quite all right!   This post accidentally (fingers hit the wrong keys) posted before I finished.  Hopefully, you will see your name here!    Thanks again, Dianna, for this award.

Until next time...
