Acceptance of Several Awards

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.

On March 5, 2012 a most wonderful writer…a song writer and friend George W Mahn, III had nominated me with Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandment Award.

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

  1. I love a touch of fennel in my spaghetti sauce
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. I ride my moped on the Island for fun….Cici sit in a harness and she wear doggles, but rides with Mitch
  5. My first cup of coffee in the morning is fixed with creamer and sweetener, the rest of them till bedtime are with sweeter only
  6. I prefer flavored water over plain
  7. 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

The Rules

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:

  1. Sometimes I add peanut butter to my ice cream.
  2. I sleep with one foot uncovered most of the time
  3. 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!

The comic I like too!

  1. Congratulations! 🙂

    • Thank you, Angie! And Angie. I had only recently got around to putting your link in my blogroll so you too are included on this list of nominees…Go back and look at the list….Congrats, Angie…You deserve this award!
      Hugs, xx

  2. Whew, Deb, what a project this was for you and you had me laughing many times with your wonderful humor! Of course, congratulations are in order, hats off to you, again and again and again…and thank you so much for your kind description of me! Too kind! I can relate to so many of your answers, it’s crazy! I will admit that I probably won’t follow through with the awards that I have already received (but thank you for including me on your list) and I do hope you understand. I agree with you; if only time lasted much longer! However, I haven’t rec’d the Creative Chaos Award, so I may try that one…I’m so behind again! Whoever said blogging could be stressful? I thought it was only fun! Hee,hee! Well, a fun kind of stressful, if this is all we had to worry about, right? Anyway, thanks and congrats again and have fun on your moped. What a cute pic I imagine with Cici! Hugs! xo

    • Do you have any idea how long it took me to do this post. I think it was still daylight when I started. I know it was way before suppertime…lol All of you, and God will only know of all the typos…hehe.
      You take these awards, Lauren, but you do not have to do a post for them. What is the point unless you want to pass it to someone….make your own rules. These awards should be a joy to get and not bothersome in anyway. Enjoy and congrats.
      Now I want a medal for doing a post this long and wordy…lol And now, I think I’ll take more poor dog out to go wee wee.
      Love and Hugs, xx

      • I completely understand and am now working on mine! My Dad is coming on Friday for Easter and will stay through next Wednesday. After Mom’s passing, he’s doing okay, but is starting to feel more lonely. He is so excited to see us, so I don’t think I’ll be blogging much. Needless to say, I’d like to follow through with these, otherwise, it’ll be on my mind the whole time…anyway, you take care of your little doggies! My dog is like a horse in our house. It’s quite hilarious! xo

        • You just tend to your family and fool with this stuff in your spare time. I’m glad to hear your dad is doing okay. You have a great time with visiting with him and know that my prayers are always with you.
          I’m off to bed for now, and will see what you may or may not have new on your blog tomorrow.
          Love and Hugs, my friend! xx

          • Sounds good, sweet dreams! 🙂

          • Hi Deb, I hope you’re in dreamland by now…I posted for March awards and will follow through with acknowledgments for yours a little later this month…just letting you know because I appreciate you thinking of me! Sleep well! 🙂

      • Good morning…nearly noon now though. I was at your blog bright and early this morning and saw your post…It was a lovely post my friend. You have such a kind and beautiful heart…rare these days to find in a person.
        God bless you, my friend
        Hugs, xx

      • I was so tired…I don’t even remember if I dreamed or not!…lol
        Love and Hugs, xx

  3. I understand the ice cream thing. Ain’t changin tho.

    • I’d change if if I could…well, okay, I just wish it was different, but I love it, and I’m not giving it up…No, I won’t. I know, if I could change anything is would be that fact that I can’t not gain an ounce from eating all the ice cream I want. So there.
      Have a good night, Carl
      Hugs, xx

  4. I love all of your answers. I love fennel, and since I …wait a minute. You nominated me. No secret telling here! You will just have to wait for the post 😉

    You are so sweet! Just stick your finger in the coffee and tell Mitch a little coffee with your sweetener is plenty 😉


    • Yes, of course you were nominated!! You deserve these as much as I do….no…more than I do!
      No hurry in posting, Red. I hold no one to rules with these awards. Once given to me, I make my own rules…none. You do with them as you please…they are meant for you to enjoy, not to feel pressure.

      Took your advice since I seen your comment before coffee this morning and it worked with Mitch, but my finger just was not sweet enough…lol
      Your a gem, Red!
      HUGZ to you! xxx

    What a lovely post, it sure made me smile. Congrats and thank you, Deb. Peanut butter on ice cream? Never tried it 🙂 . But I love sate sauce on sauerkraut, lol.

    • It makes is taste like a generic, cold Reese’s cup. 🙂 What is sate sauce?….never mind. I Googled it. http://www.food.com/recipe/sate-sauce-135827
      I have not heard of it before, so it is difficult for me to imagine over sauerkraut giving the ingredients I read….but I get the feeling it is an odd combination. lol

  14. Congratulations on all of these awards, Deb! You definitely deserve them! And thank you for your incredibly kind remarks. I am both honored and humbled to play a part.

    I love your answers…I can relate to reaching for the chocolate syrup, too!


    • Thank you, and you deserve everyone of these too. So you take them and enjoy each one. Also, don’t forget to see the post before this one. I nominated you there too.

      Oh yeah, chocolate syrup works in a pinch when a chocolate fix is in order…lol
      Have a great night, my friend!
      Hugs, xx
