Real Neat Surprise!!

Now isn’t this a lovely picture?  It just fills you with little bubbles of joy.  Well it sure did that for me; and I must begin by giving a great big thanks to my friend over at for this wonderful surprise.  I am not all about awards but it is sure nice when someone thinks about us in an extra special way from time to time and a little ray of spotlight finds its way to our door. Thanks so much and we all appreciate your wonderful posts, photos and thoughts about life, nature and living.

Real Neat Blog Award

So, in the spirit of non anarchy at this moment, I shall follow the rules (although I am a real rule breaker in my soul. lol) and answer the 7 questions put forth by the wonderful blogger who nominated me. If I pass this on to you you will have the same rules and as well the same freedom to pass along or just look at your award and smile.  That is what is is all about really, so if you want to pass on the smile, please do! And don’t forget to copy and past the award on your blog for others to see!

My seven questions were:

1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

I am not quite certain but I think a lot of folks on Twitter actually find me easily. But then again I have made so many new friends blogging simply by commenting on someone else’s post.  Like minds and all…..

2. What is your favorite sport?

If we are talking about playing, I don’t play many sports but have enjoyed basketball and volleyball in my life a lot.  As for watching, again, not the huge fan;  but I love a good football, basketball or futbol match, if there are teams playing that are near and dear to my heart! OH! I do love a good live, in the stands, hot dogs in hand baseball game!!

3. What has been a special moment for you in 2014?

A true “bucket list” moment for me this past year was going to the live theater performance of Phantom of the Opera. It was amazing! But all my moments are special in unique ways, if only I look closely enough. 🙂

4. What is your favorite quote?

“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.”  A Course in Miracles

5. What was your favorite class when still at school?

Ach!! Why, Creative Writing, of course!

6. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?

I wish I understood the power of loving myself and not viewing myself through the eyes of others in order to feel valued. Still working on that one.  :/

7. What musical instrument have you tried to play?

I have pecked at the piano off and on always wishing to learn to play. But I have short fingers, long nails and a very difficult time with making both  hands work independently of one another.  I have plucked a guitar or two as well.  Short fingers again……I think I would love to have played the drums…

Okay! With that self conscious moment out of the way let me pose my 7 questions for the blog nominees. May I say that anyone I follow is special in a million ways but so many of you have won so many awards and also have so many followers, just know that if I did not add you here it is due to not wanting to overburden your very busy dance card. ;)) Also link back to me if you like and be sure to ask 7 questions of your own nominees!

1)  Is is cold where you are? ( I really want to know. I’m polling.)

2)  What music inspires your creativity?

3) Coffee or tea?

4)  Do you feel there is any of you personally in the characters you create for stories?

5) Did you like/hate high school?

6)  If there was a fruit war, which fruit would win? (I think Pineapples have an edge but who knows?)

7)  What is the last thing you saw that you thought was truly miraculous?

My nominees are:

Okay so I thought I had lost this COMPLETELY when I left the page and miracle of miracles here it is again!  Apologies to WordPress for the ugly thoughts I thunk.

Here’s to honoring one another always!

  1. Just seen that you had nominated me, thank you! I also am not about awards but indeed it is nice to receive a little extra recognition now and again, I thank you so kindly for thinking of me when picking your nominees. I will get to work on my reply. I enjoyed your replies 🙂

    I am surprised at how many bloggers receive hits from Twitter, I joined Twitter at the same time I started Viva Combusta! and hardly ever receive hits from it. Knowing now that you are on there as well I shall look you up.


    1. Hi Clarissa! Thanks. I also get some good response from Stumbledupon but I am very remiss in being able to stay on top of all that social networking. It just isn’t why I write. I really do it to meet other creative people and find common interests. I hope to see you on Twitter. If you do connect let me know because that is a different email and I don’t check it every day. Look forward to your reply! Happy Sunday!
