Thanks for the award


Seriously Cute Blogger Award

Thank you  Rosalind Adam of  Rosalind Adam is writing in the rain for naming me a ‘ seriously cute blogger’ and ‘tagging’ me and now I’m cheating and answering a combination of the two sets  questions that she sent my way.

1. Upload a recent wallpaper (from my computer I presume)

This is a gorgeous photo I took when I had lunch with my sisters recently overlooking the beach in Netanya. I just love the contrast between the sea in front and behind the breakwater.

Doesn’t it make you want jump in and start swimming?DSC00129

2. When did you last eat chicken?

Yesterday for Shabbat lunch – after the cholent of course, no matter that it’s 30 plus degrees outside– we still have to have cholent!

3. Do you have a nickname?

Yes  - Penny , that’s what my sisters all call me. How did it originate? Supposedly because that’s all I was worth –( I guess I ought to see a therapist to see why I’m not suffering from a terrible  complex after getting such a cruel nickname!)

Now I’m going back to the cute-blogger award and naming 5 of my all time favorite books. Some of them I can barely remember but at the time they made a tremendous impression on me!

1. The Fountainhead – Ayn Rand

2.Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier

3. Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom

4.1984 – George Orwell

5. The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger

Congratulations on the Cute Blogger award, I love that dog picture, (but then I invented this award and he is my doggy!) So I am really excited to see it spinning around the Blogger Globe.
Your book list is very interesting. Have a fab day!

You're very welcome to the award. I love that photo. You've caught the textures (does sea have a texture? hmmm)of the sea perfectly. I love cholent, whatever the weather. For once we too have a heatwave here and I'm making chicken curry for Sunday supper. We're a funny lot, us humans.
