MeMe–Isn’t that the truth!?!

Sarah and/or Helen at Toronto Gardens have  graciously nominated me for a MeMe award. More a reveal–those 7 tidbits and 7 links below–than an award, it none the less indicates that someone is interested in what I have to say so I’m proud.  Isn’t it all about meme..me anyway?

No I didn't really get one of these...Trophy via U of A and has nothing to do with this award

With that in mind, here goes…

There are a few simple Meme rules:

  • Link back to the person who gave you the award.
  • Reveal seven things about yourself.
  • Choose seven other blogs to nominate, and post a link to them.
  • Let each of your choices know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.
  • And finally, let the tagger know, when your post is up

Here’s the 7 tidbits…

  1. It’s taken me all this time (a bit more than a half century) to be comfortable with myself–warts and all (I still struggle with weight–Does this blog make me look fat?)
  2. Angst overtakes me at some point in the design process–every time.  I’ve come to realize it’s part of the process
  3. I don’t suffer fools
  4. I feel guilty that I don’t pay more attention to my own garden which is a perpetual mess
  5. I would like to walk away from a project someday completely and absolutely satisfied with every detail of the end result (see #2 above)
  6. I swear like a sailor–frequently
  7. Random connectivity fascinates me

Here’s the 7 new Meme nominees…and my reasons for nomination.  I’ll be back after this commercial break.

  1. On the Way to My Shoes –she knows the real deal and struggles with life out in the open across several platforms.  Her blog has made me cry.
  2. Finding Design with Chloe –she gives me insight into the way another designer in NJ thinks–so few of us communicate it!
  3. A Verdant Life–he is passionate about his work, honest in his opinions and varied in his choice of topics
  4. Blue Planet Garden Blog–she helps me see landscape design beyond my own four season climate
  5. Weavin Demon–she is late to find her creative outlet.  I knew at a young age so it’s interesting for me to read her perspective and watch her struggle with it
  6. Gaita Interiors–for showing all of us that there are  great options no matter what your budget
  7. Studio G–for being the only landscape design blog of its kind

There are several other blogs that I read regularly that I didn’t include here for a variety of reasons–mostly because I believe that the writers of those wouldn’t want to particpate in something like me…me…me.

    Congrats Miss R!

    Your 7 reveals are as candid as I would expect from such a straight-shooter.

    I’m working on fulfilling my part of this meme, which you would have been chosen for had you not already been chosen! Alice

  3. Thanks for the nomination, Susan! Just put my post up, and you didn’t even have to trot out the salty sailor talk to convince me!

  4. John says:

    Susan, thank you again for the nod — I’ve dutifully posted my 7×7. Now will you swear like a sailor for me? ;-)

  5. Lynn says:

    I just tagged you, too (‘cuz one of the seven things about me is that I hate rules, except #3 of Miss Rumphius’ ,of course). See http://tinyurl.com/lwcb2d

    Can relate to the constant battle between design-paralyzing angst and the zooming zone of creativity. Much more familiar with the former.

    Imagine your garden home is an interesting laboratory, always in process. Mine’s a mess.
