BB Award!

Thanks to Kate of Lazy Kate Creates for passing along the "Beautiful Blogger Award" to me.  I am now supposed to share 10 things you probably don't know about me. Not an easy task...I am a pretty private person and sharing 10 things all at once is a big one for me!

If you've been here before you may have noticed that I haven't shown my face or my name and I don't share very personal things about myself.  I don't think there is anything wrong with sharing more if that's your thing, it's just not for me (so far).  But, if you'd asked me 8 months ago if I would even be writing a blog my answer would have been no.  So, I guess we chalk it up to never say never. OK, so here we go:

1)  My Nana was a prolific knitter and she taught me a few knits and purls as a child but it never really "took" for me until many years later after she died. I actually taught myself from a book, but I feel like it was in my blood. I wish we could have done some knitting together.

2)  I own my own consulting business.

3)  I truly believe that I was a dog in a former life.

4)  I always wish I appreciated and understood art more.  I live in a city with so many beautiful museums and galleries, but I don't really get it.

5)  I don't eat meat.  I guess you could say I am a vegetarian who eats fish.  Some would call that a pescatarian.  I don't like that term.  Labels, labels.

6)  I wish I could sing and if I could, I'd be in a band.

7)  I despise pickles--the look, taste and especially smell of them.  Come to think of it, I also hate anything that has dill in it because the smell of dill reminds me of pickles.  It took me years to eat a cucumber because I thought of them as "pickles in disguise" but now I like cucumbers.

8)  I have a cat. Yes, it's true. She came with my husband. They were a matched set and I couldn't have one without the other.  However, I am still a dog person through and through.

9)  I like historical fiction books, like those by Philippa Gregory.  You may know The Other Boleyn Girl, but there are others in a series covering the 16th century Tudor period.  Good stuff.

10)  My husband and I like to dream about opening a restaurant someday.  He is an excellent cook.  Lucky me.

I am now supposed to pass the BB Award on to 10 other bloggers.  I am kind of new at this blog thing and I am adding new blogs to my list every day.  Here are a few I especially far:

Thanks for the blog award! :)

I hate pickles as well! It's funny because I love cucumbers. I've come to the decision that I just dislike pickled things. The only pickled item I've tried and liked is cabbage/sauerkraut. Everything else is just yuck!
