I got this award:

From  Frau Lakritz und Schokolade
and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I've been blogging for such a short time, that
I'm just floored to have received an award.

And then I'm supposed to
1. say thank you (did that, do it again, thank you!)
2. copy the logo and place it in my blog, (did that)
3. create a link to the person you got it from, again
4. name 7 things about yourself that the others don't know yet - that one is hard, since I don't know who     reads the blog, and the rest of the world knows my secrets.
5. Nominate 7 other bloggers and
6. link them here
7. Notify these bloggers with a comment

And the nominees are, in no particular order:
number one
I enjoy reading about life in different countries - same as Frau Lakritz,  and Ireland, while Enlish-speaking, is still very different from New Jersey (but then a lot of places are different from NJ!)

  same here
reading about living in Switzerland -we dreamed of living in S'land when we visited there.  Berner Oberland, specifically.  And her/their life is so very different from mine/ours here.  At the moment.

and then here
same reason, but she lives closer to 'home'.  And I like her blog. And she has to watch over him, if I understood the connections correctly.  And I'm still chuckling over the Wuzze Schnubbe.
and here

She also has to deal with another country.  While I feel perfectly at home, the kingsizefairy still seems to struggle with some of the aspects of her new home.  And she is so much closer to her old home.

And then I was going to suggest  her, but she already has two awards.  So this is an honorable mention, with no obligation whatsoever to respond.  Or fulfill any of the conditions.

Which brings me almost to the end, if I look around for more people, everyone I want to nominate will have an award, and I'm no longer original.

So, now I have to tell the things about me.

I don't like spiders.

One of the men in this photo is my son, and no, it's not the man in the middle.

I don't like peanut butter.

I have a lot of unfinished projects at the house, but I'm trying to get them done.

I am looking for my first boyfriend ever, who is lost in Africa, has anyone seen him?

I am a widow and raised my kids by myself

I love the 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' series.

So, off you go, blog!  Deep breath in.... push 'publish post' already....


  1. Hallo Ruth!
    Vielen Dank, daß Du bei mir liest und an mich gedacht hast!
    Wow, Du wohnst aber weit weg. Interessant, ich schaue jetzt öfter bei Dir vorbei.
    Viele Grüße aus Hamburg!

  2. Ach, vielen Dank für die Ehre. Mein erster Award und gleich so international! Ich fühle mich geehrt und freue mich immer, wenn Du bei uns (Herrn Skizzenblog und mir) vorbeischaust. Die connections hast Du ganz richtig erkannt - und sehr treffend formuliert.
    Wenn ich wieder mehr Zeit vor dem Rechner als beim Kinderarzt verbringe, werde ich mich des Awards annehmen. Ich weiß nur nicht, ob ich sieben Blogger finde, die nicht schon awardiert wurden (ich lese so schrecklich viel Mainstream ;-)

  3. Thank you very much for the award. I am deadproud and put it up my gallery :-)
