I nominated my friend, Jeane Daly, for the One Lovely Blog Hop. But Jeane doesn’t have a blog, so I offered to post here. Enjoy!
I was nominated by Abigail Owen to take part in the One Lovely Blog Hop!
About the Hop: This blog hop is designed to show our readers a more personal side to ourselves. We’ve been challenged by another author/ blogger (somewhat like the ‘ice bucket’ challenge) to list seven interesting facts to help cast light onto that tough writer’s/ blogger’s persona we all like to project. But we want to show that behind every story is a story, our story, my story, and like everyone else I have dreams, hobbies, problems and goals. This blog hop is a way to share some of them with you, my readers.
The rules are that I share 7 Lovely Facts about myself, and links to at least 15 blogs that I enjoy reading. If I’ve nominated your blog (see names below) please don’t feel any obligation to join in but, if you do, please link back to the blog of the person who nominated you (which would be me, Abigail Owen), share facts about yourself and nominate 15 blogs (or as many as you can).
Seven Lovely Facts about Jean Daly
Hi everyone. Thank you for having me.
1.My name is Jeane Daly, I grew up in the Boston area. I was fortunate to live so close to the city, there was always something in the city to do. I could walk to the Museum of Fine Arts, Symphony Hall, Museum of Science, good old Filene’s Basement, and of course, Boston Common, ice skating in winter, Swan Boats in summer.
When I turned 15, I became obsessed with theatre, and as theatre lights dimmed, I’d sneak in the fire doors of the Shubert, Wilbur, and any other theatre to hear opera, stage musicals, and of course, fantastic plays and actors. South Pacific played at the Shubert, and fortunately for me, I had a second row, aisle seat. [snuck in] The lead performer, a real hunk, sauntered down the aisle, stopped at my row, reached for my hand, and sang Some Enchanted Evening, to me. That gorgeous man was my very first crush.
2.After my 5 organically grown children spread their wings, I owned and operated, and worked along with other health professionals, Hearbeat Associates, a health maintenance company, was located in Boston and the South Shore. I have wonderful memories of going into the field and meeting others who took responsibility for living a healthy lifestyle.
3. Along the way I studied Graphology, and that led to lecturing on cruise ships. Loved it! I met so many nice people and gained weight every time I cruised.
4. But my true love is writing. It’s so much fun creating characters, some you like, others you’d like to strangle. The only trouble is when I end a book I hate leaving the characters behind, they almost become part of your family. Hope that doesn’t sound too weird.
5. I volunteer to make meals, along with a group of woman, for very sick people, most of them are Cancer patients, in need of a wholesome meal. They thank me…but it is me who should be thanking them for the honor of serving them. How blessed I am that I can do this. My husband, Jack, is a Cancer patient, and doing poorly. I’m blessed once more, that I am here to take care of my best friend.
