It feels good to be appreciated. I don’t think I get a lot of appreciation at home. Generally, I’m taken for granted.

Yesterday, I received two signs of appreciation online.

The first was about a new short story anthology, which includes a story of mine: Reflections in Watercolour. It’s published by Stringybark Publishing and is called: Hitler Did It, a title I’m not too enamoured with, although the story with that title is a beautiful tale set in wartime London.

If you’re interested in reading the anthology, it’s available here as an ebook and there might be a print version soon.

Hitler Did It

The other sign was a blogging award:

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

which I received from Rachael of Honest Speaks. Thank you, Rachael!

So I’m supposed to list 7 things about me and 15 inspiring blogs.

  1. I have worked with computers all my working life. That doesn’t stop my son from telling me I know nothing about computers.
  2. There isn’t a lot of food I adore. Eggs, potatoes, white chocolate. I think that’s it.
  3. My favourite drink is cold borscht.
  4. I love the weather in Jerusalem. Cold, rain, sun, heat, snow, I love it all.
  5. I’ve never been to the Far East, but hope to rectify that soon.
  6. I’m not good at pronouncing Rs, which is unfortunate since there are three in my name.
  7. I love most classical music and pop, but not jazz.

Now for the blogs:

  1. http://jeandavisonwriter.wordpress.com/blog/
  2. http://bottledworder.wordpress.com/
  3. http://susanwritesprecise.com/
  4. http://davidrory.com/
  5. http://mythoughtsonthesubjectareasfollows.wordpress.com/
  6. http://fortyoneteen.wordpress.com/
  7. http://victoria-writes.com/

I think seven is enough.
