Lady Eowyn of Captured By The Word nominated me for the Versatile Blogging Award! Intrigued, I looked up the word “versatile,” trying to figure out the meaning of the award, and according to my Mac’s dictionary versatile means able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities. Well, I guess I do […]
