An Award

What a nice surprise to start 2011.  I received this award from three different people.  Thank You Heide, Renee and Lisa.  Now there are rules attached to this award.  First you must tell 8 things about yourself that people might not know and then send this award on to 8 more people.

Things about me:
  1. I have been called Cec since I was 17 but my name is actually Cecylja (pronounced like Cecilia) - mine is the Polish spelling.
  2. I have the most eclectic taste in music but jazz is by far my favourite and I really dislike heavy metal, acid rock and rap.
  3. I love to cook and bake and am pretty good at it - at least so my family and friends say.
  4. I have been retired for a year but prior to that worked in finance and accounting for over 45 years mostly in not-for-profit organizations.
  5. I love to travel and am hoping someone rich will adopt me so I can do more of it.
  6. I hate to exercise but walk because my doctor forces me to.
  7. I have always done some volunteering and now am helping out a couple of times a month in my Granddaughter's Junior Kindergarten class, which requires an enormous amount of patience and copious amounts of headache medication.
  8. I do enjoy an adult beverage while I am making dinner and the beverage of choice is a single malt scotch but I won't turn down a very dry red wine.
I am sure these are things you really couldn't wait to know - lol.

I am going to send this award on to these wonderful ladies who are just a very few of the lovely blogging friends that make my day:


  1. Oh wow! Thank you so much Cec how very thoughtful of you! And you have brought me a smile this morning. :)
    Happy New Year to you honey.xx


I love to hear what you think about my work, so please leave me a comment.
