On February 26, 2012 an excellent poet and my dear friend, Lauren had nominated me for the Reader’s Appreciation Award….thank you, Lauren, I am honored,and graciously accept. And now feel I may place this lovely award on my blog. You have been more than patient with me to prepare and publish a post.
For those of you who may not know Lauren would be cheating yourself for not taking the time to visit her blog. She is kind, loving and witty. Her poetry is heart-felt, of love, passion, compassion, and day to day life.
I will explain this award exactly as Lauren had read it to be when she read about it
As she wrote, awards are like gifts–they are meant to be a blessing. Therefore, the “rules” are not legally binding–which means, if you’re not happy to be nominated, please have some mercy and grace for me. (Caddo didn’t do compliance checks and neither will I!) “List six nominations. Link the Award Image back to the one who presented it to you.” But if you can’t manage it, please do not fuss and fret.
I will list the nominees at the bottom of this post.
The “Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award” has to do with a woman of the same name, known for being very elegant and having high expectations, and who is committed to maintaining integrity, good manners and behavior, as well as a rich sense of humor. Thank you, George, for considering me for this high honored award! Now, I must answer 10 Questions “honestly” about myself, as part of my acceptance (rules) of this award.
1. Describe yourself in seven words.
Creative, honest, loving, caring, emotional, playful, and kind
2. What keeps you up at night?
Cocoa…if I have it too late in the evening.
3. Whom would you like to be?
Me…as God intended me to be.
4. What are you wearing now?
White tank top, blue jean overall, and slipper
5. What scares you?
My checkbook every time I look at it.
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
The best is the meeting and making new friends. The worst is the lack of time to visit all my friends when I want to.
7. What was the last website you looked at?
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
You’ve heard it before and you’re going to hear is again….my love for ice cream
9. Slankets, yes or no?
No…I use a blanket
10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.
George is a love heart. This can easily be seen in the lyrics to his music, the way he speaks to me in comments and replies, and the way he speaks to others. He is health conscious, cares and respects his fellow man, writes a song that will be felt deep in your heart. He make warms my heart with his gentle nature.
Now this next award, the Kreativ Blogger Award came to me as a surprise because I was nominated by Tania Smith whom I met through her nominating me. Tania…please forgive my tardiness in getting this posted prepared and posted…. I am truelyhonored and very humbled that you would think of me for such an honorable award…thank you, Tania!
Seven things about myself
- I love a touch of fennel in my spaghetti sauce
- Some of you know, but some of you don’t but my artwork has been, and still is to date, on the 6 pack of Derwent’s Natural Graphite Blister pack (the backing image).
- When I came to this Island this season I forgot my art supplies. So digital for now till I take a short trip back home in June…unless I buy more.
- I ride my moped on the Island for fun….Cici sit in a harness and she wear doggles, but rides with Mitch
- My first cup of coffee in the morning is fixed with creamer and sweetener, the rest of them till bedtime are with sweeter only
- I prefer flavored water over plain
- I am the typo queen of the blogoshere, and can only hope I proved myself wrong in this post…lol
My last and most recent award I was nominated for is the Creative Chaos Award from George W Mahn, III. His blog is Vertical Leap. George is also the one who nominated me for the above award, Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandment Award. George, I am truly honored and bless that you thought of me when you passed on this award…thank you!
For those of you who do not know George, I high recommend you visit his blog. He is a wonderful song writer with lyric that are so heart-felt that you would think he wrote it for you….So don’t cheat yourself…give him a visit
Firstly: Thank the person who gave you the Award.
Secondly: Take your best shot at the 3 tasks listed below.
Thirdly: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog.
First Task: Three weird things I do:
- Sometimes I add peanut butter to my ice cream.
- I sleep with one foot uncovered most of the time
- I’ll get a teaspoon of chocolate syrup if I want chocolate and don’t have any.
Second Task: You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”
Once I put sweeten in my coffee it is my husband that say’s “What no coffee with that.
Third Task: You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cellphone service, no Walmart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your under pants and why?
I’d be grateful for the candy bar…eat it while I waited for my husband to come look for me based on where I told him I was going…as I always do (including my routes.) My pants are? Well, I wouldn’t know unless I looked, and it would be the furthest thing on my mind.
Now for the nominees…
I do not pick and choose from my blogroll as who I think deserves the awards, since I feel they all deserve it. So for each and everyone of these awards I nominate my entire blogroll. If you find yourself on this list and do not wish to accept the awards…that is fine. there are no obligation or rules you must follow. You can just take them and enjoy them and know you are all worthy of them as far as I am concerned….Congrats to all of you!
