One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you so much to Youmeanme author of the Saving Without Scrimping blog for nominating Dewey Hop for the “One Lovely Blog Award!” Youmeanme is loving life on a budget and I love visiting her site where there are all sorts of great ideas for living life and staying on budget. She’s a fun and creative person!

Guidelines for the “One Lovely Blog Award”:
•Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
•Add the “One Lovely Blog Award” logo to your post and/or blog.
•Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
•Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.

7 Random Facts & Things in no Particular Order:

1. I love to read and have always been a voracious reader. Writing the Dewey Hop blog for the Fulton County Public Library in Rochester, Indiana is a great excuse to get to read a lot! I am primarily a nonfiction reader (thus the reason Dewey Hop begins in the nonfiction section), but I do enjoy works of fiction and plan to read through all parts of the library as well as explore all the great resources and services.

2. My husband and I plan to someday be on the mission field. We have started taking baby steps towards this goal. The most recent one being that he has finished schooling for airplane mechanics/body work. (He is almost finished now with FAA Boards; one test to go!)

3. My daughter recently got a job cleaning airplanes!

4. Before working for the library, I have done all sorts of other jobs including, but not limited to:  being a Special Education Teacher, being in management positions for various retail stores, Co-founder of a group that helps people with difficulties in the workplace, a demo person giving free samples/items to customers in a grocery store and even working for a potato chip company.

5. I’m currently writing a book. It is a true story and testimony of things my family has been through and how we believe God brought us through them. Truth really is stranger than fiction!

6. The last book I read was about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder called  Amen, Amen, Amen by Abby Sher. The book(s)  I am currently reading are Angel Armies by Tim Sheets and a book about living with autism called Raising Cubby by John Elder Robison.

7. I have lived in 5 states: New Mexico, Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. I have also lived in one US Territory: Guam.

  1. You’ve worked so many different kinds of jobs, that’s awesome! I hope to have that much variation in my life as well.

    I read some of John Elder Robison’s book, “Look Me In the Eyes.” I didn’t know he wrote another as well.

    Thanks again for nominating me!

    1. Yes. I know there are BOCD versions of Robison’s “Raising Cubby” and “Switched On” books. I’m not sure about the book versions yet. I’m not normally a BOCD kind of person, but I find these stories interesting–and he reads them himself! Also, did you know that Augustin Burroughs who wrote “Running with Scissors” is John Elder Robison’s brother? That is something I learned from “Look Me in the Eyes.”
      You derserved the nomination!
