One Lovely Blog Award

george-b was so kind to give me the One Lovely Blog Award.

Thanks so much! This is my second time for that award.

george-b has a very interesting blog, he writes about many varied subjects (a bit similar to my blog in that respect 🙂 🙂 . Those subjects include animals, music, history and many others.

The rules of the One Lovely Blog Award are:

My list of seven things about me:

1. When I was in my teens, I was in a table tennis club.

2. I was in football clubs as well.

3. I was in an athletics club (best parts: 1500 meter running and long jump).

4. At a classmate’s house, I watched aquariums and terrariums.

5. Today, I was at the cemetery. I heard a nuthatch, but not so many birds today. More dragonflies than usually, a speckled wood butterfly sitting on a leaf, and mushrooms.

6. My knee is still slowly recovering after I fell during the Rembrandt celebration.

7. The birds are coming back to the balcony, now that the house shaped feeder has been repaired.
