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;

 

http://valentinadesigns.wordpress.com/

 

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?

 

Questions;

 

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 I  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.

Family of Bloggers Award

http://misbehavedwoman.wordpress.com

Here is a little bit about Misbehaved

I am just one stubborn woman watching the fall of a free nation…and the terrifying rise of the Corporate Police State. I share random stories about current events; there is no rhyme or reason to what I might post other than whatever it might be that has my hackles up on any particular day…

What do the letters stand for in the word family to me?

F- Freedom to write what I want to

A-  Ability to be able to move forth in the world. To try to make a difference in some one else’s life

M- Music can change my moods. Through bloggers I have been introduced to different worlds of music.

I- Individual is what I would describe the letter I with. I am learning it is alright to be myself. I do not need to be what others choose and then be miserable with myself

L- Love is something I have been so fortunate enough to receive freely. This family of bloggers has poured out love and support and most importantly, friendship

Y- Yearlong is what friendships and writing are all about. There is no temporary in the blogging family. It is for life

Thank-you once again Misbehaved.

The Versatile Blogger Award


http://iamrahulashok.wordpress.com

I was given this award by Rahul. He is one of my newer blogger friends. Very inspiring and interesting blog. Please check him out!

What else can I possibly say that you don’t know about me already? Let me think here a moment.

Oh, here is one thing. I am left-handed. Isn’t there a phrase somewhere that says, left-handed people are special? Haha!

I got my first silver or gray hair at the young age of 21. I was shocked! I thought 21 was too early to look old. Now I think I am young at 58!

For my nominations I would like to choose today,

Debbie

I thank you once again http://iamrahulashok.wordpress.com Rahul for this very nice award

 

Hot Potato Award


jmgoyder.wordpress.com

This is a new award that is being given out. You accept or you don’t. You don’t have any particular rules to follow. You don’t have to say anything about yourself. You just nominate people who you know would live to receive this. Isn’t it fantastic. I am now a real hot potato gal! A little bit tough skinned and a soft soul on the inside.

Thank you Julie for thinking of me and giving me this great award!!

The Vesatile Blogger Award


http://bellybuttonblues.wordpress.com/2012/04/25/aromatherapy/#comment-496I don’t know what to say anymore with my awards. It is God who truly speaks through my fingers. It is not me. There is no way I could touch so many lives with my own mind. Thank you Teresa Cleveland for nominating me for this wonderful award

You all know about me. There is nothing left to tell. Trying real hard to say something different.

I am left handed.

I have a weakness for the soap opera, The Young And The Restless

I love giving more than receiving

I am constantly on a diet

http://buckwheatsrisk.wordpress.com/   this blogger has fascinating things to say every day

http://babyjill7.wordpress.com/  this blogger is fairly new to me, but she always replies to my every blog

http://letstalkaboutfamily.wordpress.com/  this blogger is very understanding of what i go through and i really enjoy her blogs

 

Thanks again Teresa Cleveland!
