Very Inspiring Blogger Award & Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Lipstick and Chaos has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Here is a little bit about her if you have not visited her blog.

Life in our household is always an adventure of cyclonic magnitudes. It’s a titanic shift of highs and lows, volume increasing and sanity fleeing. I live and I feel and I do most of it out loud. I believe that in sharing life’s adventures, it lets the rest of the world know that they indeed are not losing their mind and their child is not the only one masquerading around like a tie-dyed protegé in a pool of raging hormones. If only one thing I say is relatable to another life, then I have indeed succeeded in saving yet one more piece of shattered sanity.

So sit back and laugh, cry or read in disbelief. It is my hope to present to you that while life is crazy and busy and chaotic, there is a bit of sense to it.

There is an art to making it look easy while still having time to apply lipstick!

Misbehaved has a very interesting blog. She has nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award.  Here is her answers to 7 questions asked her.

7 Things About Me –

When I was little I swore that I was going to be a horse when I grew up.

I create artwork out of pieces of bone, sticks, broken glass, rusty nails and pretty much any other interesting objects I find on outdoor journeys.

If I don’t get a new tattoo soon I am likely to go insane from the itch.

I got married to Steve while wearing a black T-shirt with two skeletons have sex that says, “Love Never Dies” and a baseball cap that reads, “Bitch”. (Yes, I married a freaking prince, I know!)

I once moved to California with everything I owned in 3 suitcases and with only $20 in my pocket.

I failed ceramics in high school.

On my 5th birthday, I got a card from the Gremlins that lived under our house. True Story.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Project 365 #200 190711 Back In The Saddle Again!

Ute nominated me for this very-inspiring-blogger-award award. One reason I am excited to receive this award today is it isn’t for my regular blog. It is for my blog that holds my quotes I make up and  post.

This blog and my music blog here at WP have never received an award, so I am very honored.

The many lines that flow in this award remind me of how I love my life to blend on this earth. I like peace and easy going. Quiet times and a movie.

If it isn’t a love and romance or could actually happen in my life time, I don’t watch it. I am a mushy person. I like lots of kisses, and love and compassion in my shows. I love watching movies that have to do with disabled kids and adults. One of my favorite movies on this is Rain Man. Just love it so much!

It is just like today. I took my brother out. Every street was busy with traffic. When we went to eat there were families with kids all over the place. It kept Al entertained watching the kids. It was alright for me. I don’t do as well with little tykes as I used to when I was younger. The noise and constant movement tend to get on my nerves. When I dropped Al back off and was almost to my driveway, my body started to relax because I knew I was pulling into a quiet home. When we get word that Al gets to come back home it still won’t be bad. Just the two of us and he watches TV mostly. I will be busy with him and my writing. But even then, I am in my home safe and sound.

I learned this little tidbit on Facebook yesterday. I even practiced it last night when I went to bed. If your car has the alarm on it for horn sound and lights, lay the key ring on your nightstand. If someone tries to break in push  the buttons. It should scare the intruder off and alert neighbors while you call the police. I thought that was a good idea myself.

Well Ute, thank-you very much for giving an award to me through my quotes page. I feel very touched by this.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award


Here is a slice of who Grey Poet is;

I continue to be amazed at the followers I have and the comments that are given. I write for my own edification and in doing so, I seem to have found others that feel the words that I share. I appreciate all the thoughts that are shared and appreciate knowing when I have touched a chord with someone. I have some that have been here from the beginning of my short ride and the others that I have picked up along the way make me feel humbled. Keep the comments coming. While I have no aspirations of writing a book or being published, I will continue to share as long as others care to read. Thank you for coming along for the ride.

I am not going to nominate anyone today.

I am not going to say old things you already know about me.

Instead I am going to show you what inspires me to write
