Liebster Award


I met through Blog of the Year Award a very nice blogger named Valentina. She holds so much talent with Interior Design, I couldn’t help but follow her and dream as I read her posts and look at her photos.


Thank-you so much my friend over at;


In her words she says;


I am Valentina, interior designer by trade, fashion designer by dream, lover of food, in love with life and everything that gets my creative juices flowing. I publish one time a week.
It’s the good life!


pink liebster award


As with most awards there are rules, yes just like when we were in school and at our work.


We are to thank and link to the one who was gracious enough to nominate us.


Nominate 11 others and let them know of what you have done for them.


Answer these questions. Most of you know everything there is practically except my clothing size. LOL. But there are newer friends that barely know me. So will you try not to tap your foot and pick your nose while I go through this process again of ask and tell?




What first inspired you to start writing a blog?


I was ignorant of blogging. I had a friend who passed through my life for a very short time, and he introduced me to blogging. I have been addicted ever since. This was in March of 2012


What is the biggest challenge you have had to face when writing a blog?


Hoping that people understand what I am trying to express. It is difficult to talk to others who don’t know me. I do not use big words. I am so plain and simple. I just ask God for his help and then start typing. If I can’t understand what I write, how can I expect you to understand a stranger’s words?


If you traveled through time, what time would you want to arrive at and why?


I would travel backwards and arrived five years ago on heaven’s doors. I would grab both of my parents and tell them how much I love them and have missed them while hugging them so tight.


However if I were to just pick one time in the past..


December 24th, 1999; this was the last time my family had Christmas with my parents and siblings.


Do you prefer to eat chocolate, sweets or neither?


I crave sweets like no other. The reason being is because the doctor diagnosed me with Diabetes. Of course I am still a child in my heart. I want what I can not have. So although I do cheat, shame on me, I would rather see no sweets at all.


Do you prefer to read or write?


If I have a book in my hand that the topic is dear to my heart, I can read it in two nights. Other wise I prefer to write to my heart’s content.


What is your favorite non-fiction topic to read about and why?


Anything that has to do with slavery. I love to read about how the slaves beat the whites and learned to read and write and free themselves to build their own lives with their children. I also love to read about anything to do with plantations of the south, slavery grounds, the Victorian era, and anything dealing with antiques


If you could buy one book that would help you solve a problem in your life, what would it be and why?


A Bible that has every problem that could ever happen and the verses right beside it that match the topic


Do you prefer to write at night or during the day?


I love to write so much and talk to my blogging friends that this is on my mind as a priority first thing in the morning. I actually write throughout the day and evening.


If you could be any character from a book, who would you be and why?


Cinderella. I still haven’t found a glass slipper that will fit my fat feet. I haven’t found a pumpkin I can squeeze myself into. I am too afraid of mice so when I see them IΒ  high-tail it to another room screaming, and last but not least, I haven’t found my prince as of yet.


Do you prefer to read a printed book or an e-Book?


Definitely read a printed book. I don’t own a Kindle, can you believe this? I like the book in my hand with my over-head light on. The television on but turned down so I can tune in if I hear an interesting word. My two fluffy pillows holding my back in place and deep under my covers.


For my nominations of the beautiful, pink award I would like to pick, eenie meenie minee moe, I pick;






Beyond Back Creek

  2. Congratulations on the award. A pleasure to read the answers as I enjoy getting a sense of the inspiration for a writers posting. I look forward to more of your writings.


    • I always appreciate your comments Gray. Your chosen name has always fascinated me,,Graypoet, it reminds me of mysterious, maybe dark poetry. I am glad I was able to help you understand a little more of who I am


      • lol… well dark and mysterious, nice thought… Grabbed the name because I was old and put poet on there so people might get a hint at what I tried to write. Always appreciate letting someone know when they are enjoyed.


      • I hope you don’t find me out of place, but I don’t think your photo is old at all, in fact when I saw it the first time I thought to myself, how nice looking is he!!!


  3. I am so with you on the printed book! i love the feel of the book in my hand. the only exception is when i am not feeling well i use the audiobooks. congrats on the well deserved award.


    • to tell you the truth I have never read an E book, I also like the feel of the book and the smell of the pages………….I just don’t think I would care for an impersonal relationship with a machine of sorts


  4. Congrats Terry! I love your raw answers πŸ™‚ Getting to know you more and more girl! I’m so glad you blog as much as you do! Even though, I wish I had more time to read them, they are truly amazing and inspire me to write more πŸ™‚
