I would like to thank Kate, for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! I appreciate you thinking of me when making your nominations. Kate’s blog can be found here

The rules for accepting this award are:

Thank the person who nominated you, and add a link to their blog

Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered, or follow regularly

Nominate them for the Versatile Blogger Award, and let them know they have been nominated.

Tell 7 things about yourself.

There is no obligation to accepting this award. It is just a fun way to get to know other bloggers, and to say you are appreciated. 🙂


I’ve not nominated any certain bloggers here today. I believe every blogger should be recognized for the variety of topics you write about, whether informative, funny, slice of life, entertaining, and especially all the hard work that I know goes into creating and maintaining a blog. So, anyone who would like to participate, feel free to accept this award. You are awesome! 🙂


7 things about myself:

  1. I collect novelty salt and pepper shakers
  2. I wake myself up talking and laughing from a dream, sometimes
  3. I used to have a real banana tree in my back yard (I’d never seen a real one before) The bananas were the best I’ve ever had.
  4. I love playing board games
  5. I can’t resist buying new notebooks to write in, especially if it has a cute or pretty cover
  6. I use so many post-it notes …and save what I’ve written. I call them my Crazy Notes
  7. I hate cold weather. Snow is pretty to look at, but I get panicky when we get it. I feel claustrophobic.


Thank you again, Kate, for the nomination! 🙂


Thank you for visiting! Peace }I{

    • Oh, that is so cool! We sure enjoyed the one we had, but then there was a freeze (a freak freeze down in south Tx.) and the banana tree froze and was no more. It was really neat to go pick our own from the tree! 🙂

      • I think you can still revive the banana tree. you just have to cut down the upper part. Only if the roots are still fine. By the way, when I was a kid, my mom’s backyard had squash too! 🙂

  1. Brilliant! I have a collection of salt and pepper shakers. I like the vintage or older novelty ones. I rarely buy things brand new.

    Thank you for accepting your nomination. It’s great to learn a little more about you. 🙂

    • So interesting that you have a S & P collection, also! I like the older and antique ones best. I don’t think I’ve ever bought one, myself, but people I know send them. Once I entered one in the fair we have here, under relics and antiques, and won a prize ribbon on it. That was fun. Do you have yours on display? I need a place for mine, mostly they are packed up.

      • Mine are on display. I try to avoid having my collections packed away if it’s at all possible. It seems such a shame. I’m running out of room for my S & Ps now, so I don’t tend to seek them out as much as I used to. 🙂

  2. Hi, Soulinsurreal! I didn’t know you could revive a banana tree! We moved from that house not long after, so maybe it grew back later on. I hope so. It must be nice to have so many fruit trees in your mom’s backyard, too!
