Entertainer Blogger Award C1E75BEB-5EEF-4F84-AAC3-0A32DC0CE9EF

***

I want to thank Georgie Moon for nominating me for the Entertainer Blogger Award. Thanks so much for thinking of me! Georgie can be found blogging at  Third Time Lucky

***

Here are the rules/details:

  • Thank the person who nominated you to add the link to their blog
  • Add the rules so others can follow
  • Nominate people who you find fun, inspiring and entertaining!
  • Answer the same questions
  • Include the graphic in your post

***

Here are the questions!

Why did you start blogging in the first place?

What is your favourite book?

What do you dislike the most?

What is your favourite food at the mall?

What is your favourite pastime?

***

Here are my answers:

  1. I started blogging for the first time in September, 2013, over on Blogger. I wanted a place to write things in the hopes that someone, somewhere would like to read what I posted. It took awhile to figure out how to do this blogging thing, and eventually I posted some essays and short fiction stories. Then, I decided to share my true ghost stories, of which there were quite a few. Next, I really wanted to post my fan fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”, and so I did. To me, this is the ultimate, and best fiction writing I’ve ever done, if I do say so, myself. However, I got almost nobody looking at my blog. It was recommended to me by one of those that did see my blog, that I go over to Word Press. That was the best advice! I did start on WP, then couldn’t figure it out, so stopped for awhile, still posting on the other site, still getting no views. Finally, I got back to WP, and I’ve really had so much fun, so many wonderful bloggers to visit my blog, leaving likes and comments, and encouragement, it’s  amazing. Thank you so much!

2. My favorite book/books are these. The first is, “Lost Souls”, by Poppy Z. Brite. This is the book I write my fan fiction story about. The other is, “The Survival of Jan Little”, by John Man. I read both of these books at least once a year, and have for many years.

3. What do I dislike?

  • fish
  • war
  • violence
  • politics
  • housework
  • prejudice
  • liars

4. My favorite food at the mall? I don’t eat at the mall. I might have a hot chocolate from Starbuck’s while at the book store, Barnes & Noble, but that’s it. We don’t go to the mall very often, and the food places at ours is a joke…nothing I’d even think of putting in my mouth!

5.  My favorite pastime would be writing, reading, coloring, painting, scrap booking, and jig saw puzzles

Blogger Appreciation Award

Standard

Blogger Appreciation Award I’d like to thank Suze for nominating me for the Blogger Appreciation Award! She can be found blogging in her own unique way at, “Suziland too or obsolete childhood”. Click the link below to go pay her a visit! 🙂

Blogger Appreciation Award

***

Now, here are some things we are supposed to do…

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their site.
  • Write a paragraph on something positive about yourself.
  • Nominate and notify as many bloggers as you wish.
  • Use the award image.

***

Write something positive about myself? I’m not good at saying things about myself, except things I like or don’t like. Probably people would say I am a pessimist, as I can always find something negative about any situation. However, I can always find the humor in any given situation. Pretty much anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, but I can laugh about it. That’s pretty positive, isn’t it?

Let’s see, I’m good with all animals. I pay attention to their movements and sounds, and am always explaining things to them. This is for our own pets, and even the critters outside, including insects. I talk to all of them. If I listen, really listen I can usually tell what they are thinking, or what they want. This is not really done verbally, but with the mind. I think they appreciate this, and so realize I’m a friend. I could go on and on about this and other metaphysical topics, but not now.

I am a peaceful person, and rarely get irritated by anyone or anything.

Well, enough about me.

***

Next up is to nominate people for the award. I don’t ever do this, as I know all bloggers work hard and everyone deserves to be appreciated and recognized. So, feel free to accept this award for yourself. You rock! 🙂

Inspirational Blogger Award

Standard

Inspirational Blogger Award

***

http://suziland.net/2017/10/inspirational-blogger-award/

Thanks for the nomination for this award, Suze! (you can find her blog by clicking the above link)

Here’s some rules. (do them if you want to…or not)

  1. Answer five questions posed by the person nominating you.
  2. Give one random fact about yourself.
  3. Link back to the blog of the person nomination you.
  4. Link back to the one who nominated you.
  5. Nominate 5 blogs to receive this award
  6. Pose them 5 questions of your own devising (Four personal, one stupid/fun)

These are the questions Suze asked:

My questions to you:

  1. What would your perfect blogging/writing room look like?
  2. When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
  3. Who has impressed you most with what they’ve accomplished?
  4. What is the most annoying question that people ask you?
  5. As the only human left on Earth, what would you do?

My answers:

  1. It would have my computer, a bunch of shelves, and filing cabinets. I’d want a nice desk, with enough space to spread things out, and some drawers for office supplies. I’d have books, knick-knacks, and plants on the shelves. A window, no even better, a glass French type door, leading to a secluded patio space, with lots of flowers and plants, and bird feeders.
  2. I don’t think people come to me for help, that I know of. Sometimes my daughters want an old family favorite recipe, or something.
  3. My grand-daughter
  4. It’s annoying to be asked every day, ‘what do you want for breakfast, lunch, supper…it’s your decision’. I just can’t make decisions like that. I don’t care what we have. I’ll cook whatever, and eat whatever, just don’t make me decide.
  5. The last person on Earth? I don’t know how that would even happen. I’d want to have fun, going into stores and playing around with all the merchandise. Mostly though, I’d be scared. I hate to be alone, even in my own house. As clumsy as I am, I’d probably fall down first thing, and there’d be nobody to help me up! 🙂

***

I guess that would be my random fact about myself…I don’t like being all by myself.

Now, the rest of the rules I don’t do. I don’t usually send out nominations for these, as I feel everyone deserves all the awards. I know how much time and effort it takes to keep up with a blog, so you all should be recognized.

If you want to grab the badge, and accept this award for yourself, please feel free to do that. Answer these same questions, and go have a look at the ones Suze answerd on her blog. There are interesting questions there, too. 🙂

Thanks again, for the nomination, Suze! 🙂

MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD

MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD

mystery-blogger-award-e1483766889326

I was nominated to receive the Mystery Blogger Award by Oneta. Thanks so much for thinking of me. Oneta’s blog, “Sweet Aroma”, can be found at the following link: https://onetahayes.com/2017/01/07/mysterious-blogger-award/

***

To accept this award we are supposed to thank who nominated us, tell 3 thing about yourself, leave a link to your best post, answer a few questions, and nominate others. I don’t do the nomination part, as I believe every blogger deserves to be recognized for all the hard work they put into their writing. If you’d like to claim this award, feel free to do so. 🙂

***

The questions for this award are as follows:

3 things about myself: I like taking photos of spiders and other insects, I don’t like winter/cold weather, I really like flying in airplanes

I’m going to pick and choose these questions from the ones Oneta answered, and the ones she asked us to answer. 🙂

  1.  What are the things you do for fun? Write on this blog, play with my grandkids, play board games, color in coloring books, scrapbooking, painting, shop in thrift stores, reading…well, most everything I do is fun, except house work!
  2. If you were given the chance to choose between a million dollars and writing, which would you choose, and why? A million dollars, and then I would have lots of money to do all the things I do for fun, get another computer in case this one conks out, and of course give some to my daughters.
  3. You have three days to do something for which you are not accountable. What would you do? It would be fun to spend that time with my family in a big store, by ourselves, playing with the toys, trying on the clothes, and using whatever we wanted to, and just being silly with it all.
  4. What will you do if you have no choice but to live in a house that creeps you out for three weeks? Move right in. I’d do my ghost hunting, and write about it all.
  5. Weird, funny, or sentimental answer please.  What have you had that you considered to be your lucky charm, or something you just can’t go to sleep without (teddy bear or blanket or other)? I don’t think I have a lucky charm item. I like a soft blanket, and my own pillow, well a bunch of pillows arranged just right at night.
  6. My best blog post? I’ll let you decide by your visits here, your likes and comments, and follows. I appreciate each and every one! Thank you so much! 🙂

Thanks again, Oneta, for the nomination for the Mystery Blogger Award! 🙂

DAWN OF A NEW DAY

Comes the dawn of a new day, dear…

Dear, come softly, soothing,

Soothing our senses, gently waking,

Waking us to a day of our choosing…

Choosing to shine your love-light divine,

Divine, define, refine our day…

Day of relaxing, rejoicing in musing,

Musing, grooving, day dreaming our time away…

Away from stresses, the new day blesses,

Blesses us with it’s healing love…

Love that’s unending, enduring, and true…

True love rains down from high above.
