One Lovely Blog Award


If you want to spend great laughter with a high energy writer, please make sure to visit this fantastic web page!

I discovered a moment ago, that I was nominated for One Lovely Blog Award.

This is wonderful, but now I am worried, as I worked hard to think up new things to tell you about with the prior award, so what is a person to do? Place thinking cap on. Tick tock!

The seven things I should not tell you but today I will bring myself to do so are

Golden Girls is my number two show I watch

American Idol is where you will find me all winter long

I watch Young and the Restless almost daily, but at least on Fridays

I have to sleep with the fan running and on me 365 days a year and I have a spare, in case one breaks during the winter months and you can’t pay a million dollars to find one

I love going to the zoos, but don’t want any of them critters living inside my home

I always wished I had thick, shiny hair, like the women on the television commercials

The nominations are




Thank you so much for this beautiful nomination!!

One Lovely Blog Award


The first thing I notice in my emails is a comment from Dan, that he has nominated me for One Lovely Blog Award. Dan is one of my newest friends here at WordPress, and I already love his words and am so proud of him. He has a nice size family, and he is a military man. The way he talks about his home life, I can tell that his family is very important to him. Please check out the link above and see all that he represents.

You are to say seven things about yourself.

Nominate fifteen others.

Give credit back to the one who nominated you.

I have been having many dreams lately. I have some unfinished business I need to take care of and God is using my dreams to push me forward with this.

Today, is the first day of my outings alone.

I am a Yankee Candle obsessed woman, lilac being my favorite scent.

When my father passed away, the only comfort I received for a long time, was my collection of Christmas trees. I had at that point, fifteen through out the house, all sizes.

I have a class reunion coming up August 11, and I am going to go, but am scared to death of my looks. I have changed too much, but I guess so has everyone else.

I tried playing the daily three lottery for the first time, and I won forty dollars.

I have two racoons in my trees in my yard, that I wish would find new homes.

For my nominations I would like to present them to:

Thank you again, Dan for this beautiful award!

Corporateskirts has nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.

Corporate is fairly new to me, but I know I am going to love reading her blogs. She is for us women! Women who work, care for others, have children, any women who can and will develop stress. She is there with helpful hints and stories. Please check out her blog site. Copy and paste the above link.

Thank you Corporate for this award.

The rules are to say seven things about yourself.

Nominate fifteen others.

Give credit to the one who nominated you.

My mind is drawing a blank today. After yesterday’s issues at the cemetery and today, realizing my outing will be put off maybe one more day, and Al’s tears that started first thing this morning, I can not think.

Maybe, I can turn this around and you can  help me. If there is something you would like to know about me or our lives, you ask me the question. Deal? Deal!

For my nominations I would love to honor these people who have been an important role in my life here at bloggerville. I am wanting to place each of you, because each and everyone of you have made an impact on my life, but I can only choose so many.










It is days like this that one award, does brighten my day, and reminds me of all of my friends who care so much about me, life, and others.

Thank you again, Corporate!

Today, as I was reading my great blogging friends new blogs and responding to comments, I came across this new nomination from Lightningpen.

When I read these blogs I often find myself glued to the words. These are so good and filled with many interesting topics. I want to thank you Lightning for this award.

You are to tell seven things about yourself and also nominate fifteen others and give credit back to the one who nominated you.

The workers say my roof will be finished today. I am hoping so.

My brother woke up with a rash on his forearm this morning, so we have doctored it.

I had a dish of watermelon for breakfast.

It is to be in the lower nineties today, so there goes my electric bill!

The house will be silent all weekend as my family will be away, I am missing them already, and soon will tire of the silence.

I have gotten more exercise lately than ever. Maybe I lost a half of an inch around my waist, from picking up so many old shingles, tar papers, and nails and staples from the ground.

Did you know there is a trailer factory not too far away from here that you can clear one thousand dollars a week? No, I am not kidding!

For my nominations:





Thank you all for reading, and following me for my writings. I receive many wonderful comments. I treasure each one of them.

One Lovely Blog Award


Last night before retiring to my bed, I saw that Blazingtrail had nominated me for this fine award. The name in itself means so much. People think that at one point or another that they read a lovely blog.

I am guilty of not always looking for the small blessings in life, I want to see the big ones. March 6, 2012, was a turning point in my life. I asked God to help me do something in this world that would cause me to bless others, while I remain here at home caring for my brother. I didn’t realize what a beautiful plan the Lord had for me. Not only did he answer my prayer, he has given me many blessings.

As I lay my head on my pillow last night, I took the time to tell God thank-you for his help with my writing. I have made many friends, I have been a comfort to some. I have opened up myself to so many. I have discovered I am worthy of living, and an extra blessing he gives me gives to me are these beautiful awards. It is like the icing on the cake to me.

You are to give credit back to the one who nominated you, plus tell seven things about yourself and also nominate 15 others.

As of right now, I can not think of one thing more to say about me, so I am going to pass on this part, sorry.

For nominations I am going to choose today,











Once again, I want to thank Blazingtrail for this nomination. Make sure to check out her blog page. She is very inspiring. When you read the blogs, you will realize the skies are the limits with  her words. Very uplifting, with dreams, laughter, and fun included.
