The Versatile Blogger Award

In response to my last post on JiRaffe, Joanna kindly nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  The rules for recipients of this award are: 1) to post a link to the person who awarded you; 2) to tell your readers seven random things about yourself; 3) to award 7 newly discovered blogs, and 4) to send those bloggers a note letting them know you nominated them.

#1 is easy: Thank you, Joanna!  She is an artist by descent, spirit, and training.  Her blog, Stoveless, is beautiful and a real pleasure to view and to read.

Seven random things about me:
1) I really like Command Hooks and Command Strips.  So useful!
2) I like buying Medjool dates at Whole Foods.
3) I can read a paper while cooking [frozen] potstickers.
4) My piano at home is named Franz Baldwin.
5) I'm extremely ticklish.
6) I have houseboated down the Rio Negro, one of the tributaries of the Amazon.
7) I hate slugs.

As for #3, I honestly don't think I know of 7 newly discovered blogs, but I'll work on it!
