Illuminating Blogger Award

Today has been a very interesting day! I have connected with a number of people via this blog, as a result I have begun friendships that I otherwise would not have. This is one of the great things about  having a WordPress blog that I love!

My blog has been nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award by Genie @ GenieSpeaks   I want to thank her for being one of these people who I have met via WP and someone who I feel a beautiful connection with.   Genie….you are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your beautiful words. And to anyone reading this, if you have not visited her blog, you simply must do so! Now…go on…enjoy!

According to the rules of this award I guess I have to Share 1 Random Thing:


OK, here goes! Now you have to promise not to tell anyone! OK? Pinky swear?! OK…….

When I exercise, specifically use the treadmill, I watch British Costume Drama’s. I will not watch them unless I am on the treadmill, this is how I motivate myself, at times, to get on it in the first place! I want to know what happens next! I will pick a series like, Downtown Abbey, (I LOVE Maggie Smith) the series will have, oh like about 10-15 episodes total at 50 minutes or so per episode and that keeps me treading for long enough to work up a sweat!

**I can’t wait until next Winter for the 3rd season !!
