We've Won An Award!

PS Katz Tales is out tomorrow in The Star, Weekender, and it features Au.  Now, drum roll please.....We've won a Blog Award! How cool is that?

There's a To-Do List that comes with it.

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award
Thank you Live Out Loud!

2. Share 7 things about yourself

I thought this should be about Au and Target but I'm told it has to be about the human.  So...
  • I like fuchsia.
  • I hate loud noises: live bands, concerts, screaming kids.
  • I love reading: faves include Asimov, Pratchett, Austen, Heyer, Herriot, Durrell, and Tolkien.
  • I love people who can discuss sensitive topics without emotion.
  • I like to swim in the middle of the day in the hot sun.
  • I have gone off instant coffee because I'm drinking the real stuff.
  • I am treadmilling every day. I think it's killing me.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic.
Brian's Home                                                          According To Jimbo
Adventures of Admiral Hestorb                               Whippy Curly Tails
GrammyMouseTails                                                Whisppy
Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr            Really I'm a Mom
Serendipity Park a lovely shore breeze.... 
Not new but still awesome:
DennisTheVizsla                                                     Chey, Gemini and Ichiro
Cornish Kitties                                                       Mishcat
The Naughty Kitty Club

4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

Please realize that you are under no obligation to accept this award and that it is done in the spirit of recognizing and acknowledging really great blogging!

Congratulations on the award! You are an exceptionally versatile blogger indeed! I didn't know you liked fuchsia, swimming or treadmilling, so I am learning new stuff about you today! Ugh.... exercise! Whenever I get the urge to exercise, I sit down with a nice cup of tea and wait for the urge to pass.
