I won again!!!! Liebster Award

Imagine me, receiving two ebooks received as winnings from blogs I had entered contests for and now, oh be still my beating heart, I have won the liebster award as well!   Imagine beautiful contestant fanning face with her hand and gloriously painted nails, with tears brimming eyes!   Lol, that would be me in my imagination!   Now imagine short and squatty, with round face, teary eyed and short nubby fingers with broken and snagged nails fanning face....not.  Lol

Thank you Rosa from http://bajanrosabooks.blogspot.com for awarding me this lovely blog award.  It is lovely to me because I love the German Language.   I took five years of Deutsch and because I never use it, I have lost most of that education....sigh.  Anyway, I copied the following from Rosa's blog:
