So, three things about myself … I’m sure everyone already knows a lot about me, such as I love to write, read, draw, and listen to music. But, here’s a few more things about these:

  • I was offered a scholarship to an art college after submitting a drawing from one of those ‘Draw Me’ pictures in a magazine. The representative came out to our house to sign me up … but, since they found out I was only eleven years old at the time, they said to wait. I never did go to art school.
  • I played violin for seven years in the school’s orchestras, playing in concerts, and competing in contests. It was fun. I still have my violin, and get it out once in awhile.
  • I have a diploma from the Institute of Children’s Literature for the writing course I completed with them.
  • I have a couple of poems that have been published in magazines. A dream come true to be published!

Now, here are the questions Sadje has asked me to answer:

What is your favorite cuisine?

My favorite foods of all times is Mexican. I like to eat it, and I like to cook it at home, too.

When things get back to normal and you’re allowed to travel, where would you go?

We don’t really travel any more, so we probably wouldn’t go anywhere anyway. Maybe someday we’d fly to see my daughter again, as we have in the past, but I’m sure it will be a long time before we feel safe to go now.

There is a knock at the door; are you going to answer, though you aren’t expecting anyone?

For myself, I definitely will not answer a knock at the door if I’m not already expecting someone.

How do you combat feelings of boredom?

I don’t think I’m ever bored enough to even think about it. There’s always things to do that are fun around here, like read or write, or paint and draw, and do scrap book projects, or take photos, or pet the cats. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but it’s on all the time, so I mostly listen while typing.

If someone compliments you, what is your reaction?

I say Thank You! 🙂


And, I want to say Thank You so much, Sadje, for nominating me for the award! Much appreciated. 🙂


I don’t nominate people, but I invite everyone who wants to grab the Mystery Blogger Award badge, and answer some fun questions, to do so.


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

Liebster Award # 7


Thank you so much, Sadje, for nominating me for this award. I appreciate it very much.

Sadje has an awesome blog, and you can visit her at the above link.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers and make them happy!
5. Make up to 11 questions and ask to your nominees.
6. Notify your 11 nominees.


Are you a serious blogger or just having fun here?

I would say I’m just having fun blogging, but am pretty serious about posting things every day. I enjoy it.

What was the reason that made you start a blog?

I wanted somewhere to share my writing of my fan fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”, in the hopes that someone would like it.

Take a while to think and let us know: what object that is in your reach right now, influences you? ( e g a tv)

That would be my computer. It’s a desktop, and I use it every day. Besides doing my writing, showing photos, and having fun with challenges, I can look up all kinds of information.

How do you relax?

I’m relaxed all day, every day, because I do what I want, when I want. Mostly I do blogging – reading and writing. That’s relaxing.

Are you superstitious?

Not really. I will knock wood three times just in case, but otherwise, no. I do love hearing about superstitions and maybe getting a little spooked by them. That’s just fun.

Loyalty to the one you love, or one who is right?

That would be loyalty to the ones I love, right or wrong, I’ll have their back.

How can we improve the environment of our planet? Do you take any practical steps towards it?

Lots of things could be done and should be done. Maybe I help by buying pre-used items like clothing and other things at thrift stores and yard sales.

What is one habit you have that you or your family think is childish?

Probably everything I do is a bit childish. I do silly things all the time, and get a big laugh from myself and sometimes others. I take photos of all kinds of things for blog challenges, I color in coloring books, I have to have my favorite blanket and pillow if we ever go on vacation, and I do pack them in the suitcase. I’m sure there’s more childish things I do, too.


I nominate anyone who is reading this. Answer the questions & grab the badge! It’s fun. 🙂
