One Lovely Blog Award (part Deux)

Thanks to Sherry at The Lunch Lady blog for awarding me with the One Lovely Blog Award!  Everyone should head over to her blog right now for some inspiration.  She is a tea connoisseur, a whiz with refurbishing, and a wonderful blogger! one-blog-lovely-award

As part of accepting this award, I must tell you all seven things about me, some you might possibly not know.  Here they are in no particular order:

1.  I want to travel to unique places in the world and get paid to write about my travels.  I feel like I live under a rock sometimes because I don’t get out enough.  There are special parks locally and I wonder why I’ve never heard of, or been to these places.  Apparently there is a large “cat” sanctuary in Arkansas.  You can stay in cabins on the premises and hear the Lions speak to each other across the park in low, thundering trills as you wake in the morning.

2.  I really enjoy reading and writing short stories.  Inevitably, you have to do a lot of editing, but strangely, short story writing gives you freedom to get right in to the nitty-gritty of the plot.  My particular emphasis is on character development, you may not relate to the characters, but there is just something about them that appeals to the reader.  Let’s just say, I love writing so much, I aced my creative writing course!  Not to brag or anything.

3.  I’ve tweeted back and forth with the real life Wonder Woman, Linda Carter.  On several occasions.  Again, not to brag or anything.

4.  I collect the tops of Honest Tea bottles and the tags from Yogi Tea bags.  Somehow I think one day I will have time to do an art project inlaying the bottle caps on a table top where-in I pour acrylic over them to preserve the well written six-word essays inscribed in the bottle caps.  I also think one day I will have time to make jewelry out of the tea bag tags.  This has been two years in the making.

5.  I’m still catching up on the classics of literature.  This summer I read The Great Gatsby for the first time and loved it.  Any given day I might be reading 3 books at the same time.  Currently I’m reading Tracks, The Kinetic Keeper (a book by my cousin), An Autobiography of a Yogi, and soon I will be reading To Kill a Mockingbird.

6.  I love watching people’s reactions when they taste my food for the first time…especially if I’m proud of it.

7.  I stink at Baby Shower games.  Here is evidence:IMG_0272

  1. Congratulations, and thank you for the nomination. Frankly I am overwhelmed. I have still to write an award blog to write about the previous awards. You won’t mind if I mention this in the same post? Sheen.

    • YAY!!! Glad to have made your morning! Hopefully your day was sunny all the way through! Congratulations to you too on YOUR nomination, myself as well as other readers are excited to read what you have to say! B-) 😀 (P.S. don’t really know how to make the huge smiley emoticons…but those would be in here too!)

  2. Thank you so much for the nomination! I didn’t see it until now but I’m very flattered.
    I’m sorry, though, but I made the decision a while ago to stop accepting blog award nominations.

    Please don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the sentiment behind award nominations and I’m really glad that people enjoy my blog. I don’t want to come across as being rude or ungracious by declining awards. But I have recently been nominated for a few different awards by various WordPress bloggers and it would take me too long to respond to all of them. Also, I don’t follow a huge amount of blogs – I have a select few which I read regularly – and I would simply run out of blogs to nominate!

    But thank you anyway. It made me smile. 🙂

    • HA HA HA! I had a chance to read your response at work (where I mostly cook) and you cracked me up! That is the best part of cooking for someone, especially when you cook with love is watching their reaction! If we lived closer I would make you guys some awesome soup, OR some pancakes… whichever your prefer! 🙂 So glad you love writing and reading! You have inspired me to read more and do more with your blog posts! Do you like to write fiction as well or do you prefer to write non-fiction? 🙂

  3. Thanks for the shoutout…you know me I love me some gold stars and pats on the back. You are definitely lovely and glad to see you posting and unveiling even more layers. And what was up with those baby shower games and whose baby shower plays those kinds of games? Was it a teacher? What ever happened to beer-chugging baby bottles?

    • Guat, I am so sorry about not having posted something to your page! Have been trying to keep up! You deserve ALL the gold stars! Thank you for the endless encouragement, and for being wonderful and lovely yourself! Writers like you make it easy for me to come out and unveil those Ogre-ish layers! 🙂 Ha ha ha! Beer chugging baby bottles, that is hilarious! The baby shower was fun, a lot of the rhymes I didn’t know, most people were googling them. I decided to have fun with it and make a new Nursery un-rhyme. Figured Simple Simon needed a smart friend. 😉 Thank you thank you thank you so much again! You deserve all the accolades!!!
