Why! It’s a Major Award(s)

First let me say that I have been nominated for awards recently and just have not had time to respond. I do, so, apologize. I am truly honored when I’m nominated and it warms my heart to respond to comments and debate our topics here on wordpress. Also, please let me take this time to apologize that I’m so far behind on reading the blogs I follow. I have the email notifications in my in-box and I’m getting to them slowly. I have found a true family here on wordpress and in the very near future I will share with you the reason for my getting so far behind with reading the blogs I follow.

Now, to the awards, first let me thank Lisa at Road to Nowhere for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. I have to jump on Lisa’s wagon and say I’ve been labeled many things over the years, but “sweet” has never been one of them. So the questions to answer are:

Cookie or Cake? Cake, especially the kind with nuts, and thick frosting made with real butter. Crap, I’m hungry.

Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate and I love the dark, dark, dark chocolate.

What is your favorite sweet treat: cheesecake or frozen yogurt? Cheesecake, turtle cheesecake with caramel, nuts, chocolate, did I mention I’m hungry?

When do you crave sweet things the most? Only morning, noon and night. THis is my one true vice (well, other than coffee). Life is short, eat dessert first!

If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? No idea. I really can not imagine anyone giving me a sweet nickname. When my loyal followers read this, please someone give me a “sweet” nickname.

Next, I must thank make believe boutique for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. The rules say I’m supposed to share 7 curiosities about me. Well, if you’ve been reading my blogs for long, you know there are way more than 7. But here goes:

I have a sweet tooth and it loves the company of coffee.

I love all animals even reptiles and amphibians.

My favorite kind of humor is sarcastic humor. And I can usually find something to laugh about especially during stressful or sad situations.

I once considered being a minister, but realized my spiritual practices are too out of the box for most churches.

My favorite author is Stephen King and I own several hardback first editions of his early work.

I love all music and can play the flute, piccolo and piano (although I’m not great on the piano). My favorite music is rock before 1975, especially Elvis, the Beatles, etc.

I love to travel. If someone says go, I’m in the car waiting before I know where we’re going.

Another late award thank you goes to Spilled Cookies for the Sunshine Blogger Award. The questions for this award are:

A goal I have: To comfort and heal others with my gifts.

Something unusual about me: I’m one of the most unusual people you will ever meet.

My passion: I have many, healing others, helping others find their unique spirituality, saving endangered species and the earth in general, William 😉

Favorite time of the year: I don’t really have a favorite. I love snow so I’m always happy in winter, but I love lazy evenings on the patio in the summer.

Favorite vacation: So far it’s been Sedona Arizona visiting the energy vortexes.

Favorite physical activity: dancing.

What puts a smile on my face: my daughter and grandson.

Next up, Hey, I told you I was really behind. The next thank you goes to Peace with my life for the Versatile Blogger Award.


On to the Beautiful Blogger Award from Lead Learn Live

Both awards require 7 random things about me.

I’m not a house-wife type, nothing in common with Martha Stewart.

I love to laugh

I love children

I secretly listen to KISS – love the make-up and weird stage antics

I walk outside almost every night to gaze at the stars and moon

My favorite meal is chicken livers, fried potatoes and cottage cheese, with buttermilk biscuits.

My dream car is a Dodge Challenger (I’ve already owned a Camaro and Mustang).

I must also thank The Hand Written Life for the Liebster Blog Award.

These are the questions:

Favorite word in the English language: idiosyncrasy, because it sounds like the meaning.

What I’m listening to while I write: football

Last thing I ate which I really enjoyed: Green chili stew (homemade).

During a job interview, the interviewer asks me to make them laugh, what do I do: tell them a funny story about my daughter.

The world is about to blow up, but you’re being saved, and are allowed to take five things to another planet (aside from the clothes you are currently wearing), where you and only 999 other people will now exist (ignore the bleakness of this question). What do you take? Musical instrument, books, photo album, jewelry from William, my favorite boots

Favorite drink in the morning: coffee

Last book that made me cry: Mister God, This is Anna

Most ridiculous way I’ve been injured: fell off a boat and dislocated my should, and yes, I had been drinking

Favorite city in the world: Salem, Mass.

Most embarrassing album in my music collection: Bobby Sherman

To borrow an old line from a Crowded House song, would you rather a mansion in the slums or a caravan in the hills (i.e. a nice house in a not nice area, or a tiny living space but with views)? Believe it or not, I’ve had both. I still miss my “dream house” in the not so great neighborhood. But we have a really nice house now, with a great view, we just wish it were bigger. I love views, but I have to say, and please don’t think bad of me, not much tops a really great house.

Finally, I nominate all of my wonderful followers. These are great awards and all my readers are amazing people. So, please, everyone who reads this post, pick the award you think will be the most fun to respond to and say the award is from me.
Love you all,

Inspiration comes in many forms. One thing that inspires me is when readers appreciate my blog, especially when those readers have blogs of their own.  So, here are my most recent awards:

Elisa Cashiola has honored me with the

Please check out her blog, its wonderful and she gives great advice.

There are 7 questions to answer, so I’ll make this short and sweet

My favorite number is 4, it comes up and seems to have meaning to many things in my life

I love coffee, drink it every day in many ways

Favorite animal(s) I don’t have just one, I love and honor all animals, but my heart melts for wolves, horses and big cats

I use Facebook and Twitter both, but Facebook more

I’m passionate about saving the earth, the environment, not only endangered species, but all life forms so nothing is ever in danger of being extinct. I believe endangered lists shouldn’t be necessary

Saturday morning early is my most favorite time of the week. I’m fully into my weekend but there is still most of it to be enjoyed.

Favorite flower? again, I don’t have just one, I love all flowers, but I see a simplistic elegance in tulips and cala lillies

And my second award, jmgoyder has bestowed the upon me. Please check out this blog, it’s amazing and always enjoyable. Now, because of this award, my blog will be getting a face lift in the next couple of days with a new theme “Taking the guts out of fear.”

Thank you both for these great awards, I’m truly honored and humbled by your kindness.

Now for Some Happier Reading

Over the past weeks (I apologize, I’ve been amiss in my blog responsibilities), I have been nominated for several Awards.

First I want to thank  Karmic Diva for the following:


Many thanks to The Joy Level for the

And finally love and appreciation to Spilled Cookies for the

I am so touched that each of you thought of me when paying forward the honors these awards represent. I am lucky to know each of you and to be able to share in the warmth, knowledge and love that you each convey to others in your blogs.

Now, each award has different guidelines, but the basics are to share some interesting facts about myself and then extend the awards to others. So, some new info on me:

I was born during a full moon in the sun sign of Leo…meditate on the astrological implications of that.

My muse and only pet is a Siamese fighting fish named Samson.

I love feng shui and use it in my home, car, office, garden, even with my clothing choices.

I have a soft spot for all animals and all children, I will defend their honor no matter what.

I go barefoot whenever possible (and safe), I love the feel of the floor, ground, earth touching my feet.

Okay, now to nominate some fellow bloggers. I follow some awesome bloggers and wish for each of you to meet them if you haven’t already, so, all these awards go to the following blogs:

jmgoyderhonoryourspirit, In My Opinion,,,

Have a great weekend everyone.

Versatile and Beautiful

According to allaboutlemon I am Versatile and Beautiful, and here is my proof:


Thank you so much my dear, I am so honored by the awards.

Some (more) random things about myself,

I was given my first horse when I was only eight months old (I was riding before I could walk)

My ethnic heritage is approximately 50% Irish, 25% Scotch-Irish and 25% German

My brother has 7 children (4 boys and 3 girls-no worries, he and his wife both have great careers and my mom lives next door to them as an almost live in nanny)

I’m a tree hugger in the truest sense of the term and want nothing more than to ‘save the planet’ and have everyone honor ‘mother earth.’

My favorite TV show of all time: The X-Files.

My Favorite musician of all time: Elvis Presley – the Beatles following a close second.

My favorite story ever: a really old short story titled “Hasty Pudding.” Have looked for it for years and can’t find it. Its probably no longer in print.

And my nominees are:

karmic diva   Transformative light    Jenny Keller Ford   Cold Dead Heart  Spilled Cookies   momentum of joy

Honestly, picking bloggers to bestow these awards on was very difficult. All the blogs I follow are amazing and I think we’re forming a life altering community here on WordPress.

Beautiful Blogger Award

First I must thank the academy or in my case Cathy at Large Self

Next I must list 7 random things about myself, so…

I love chocolate, peanut butter and cinnamon individually or in any combination.

I prefer my vegetables raw (unless its corn or green beans) but everything else, raw.

My hair has been every shade from light blonde to very dark brown. I am most comfortable with medium brown or auburn.

I love being outside and if I can’t be outside, I at least want big open windows.

I love the water, especially the ocean and I love being in it, I have been swimming in the deep ocean and had large things bump into me, I have no idea what they were, they didn’t bite me, so I’m good.

When I was in school people thought I was stuck up, the truth is I was just shy and quiet, and this was misinterpreted. I got over it in my 20s and now I’m your typical type A person.

Even though I love the ocean, my best vacations and trips have been in desert areas. Go figure!

Now, I am supposed to nominate other bloggers, however, I want everyone I follow to know they inspire me, give me ideas, and often times comfort me. So please, each of you feel free to post the Beautiful Blogger Award and say I nominated you.

Happy Sunday everyone, I’m off to watch for the eclipse.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

   First I must thank MoJo at MomentofJoy if you have not checked out this blog, please do so, there’s always something to inspire your mind and stir your heart on her blog.

Next, seven things about myself, I’ll be honest, I’m running out of interesting things to tell you, but I’ll give it a go:

1. I love plants and flowers. Our home is full of them year round.

2. My daughter and grandson live 1500 miles away (its a 2 day drive) so I don’t get to see them as much as I want, I miss them terribly.

3. I’m writing my first books (plural), I currently have 3 fiction books I’m working on and a Spiritual Self Improvement Book. I hope to have at least two of them published and available as e-books within the next 2-4 weeks.

4. I have a tattoo, however, I keep it covered most of the time, it has great spiritual significance to me and I probably will never get another one simply because of the deep significance of this one.

5. I hate aging physically. I fight to maintain my strength and agility, and I’ll probably have some cosmetic work done in the near future.

6. I am much more Spiritual than I ever write about in my blogs. I love Jesus deeply and this is based on profound personal experiences. I believe in angels, Saints, animal spirits and Spirits in general.

7. I love scary movies. Dracula, Wolfman, The Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon (although this one really isn’t scary.  My favorite day of rest is rain or snow, wind, coffee, and a good scary movie.

And now my nominees for Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Versatile Blogger Award

   Wow, A Versatile Blogger Award. I’m honored.

First I must thank Cindy at onemindmanydetours, she has an amazing blog, thank you Cindy xoxoxo

List 7 things about myself. So, I’ll try to think of 7 things I’ve not said in other blogs. Believe it or not, when I talk about myself in blogs, I’m telling the truth. Here goes,

1. When I’m very tired my Appalachian accent is much worse. I try very hard to speak eloquently, but when I’m tired, upset or sick, forget it, I revert.

2. During the summer of 2000, my daughter and I spent time in Israel with a group of people, working on a church and school damaged by bombs, neglect, etc. During that time we had many amazing experiences, I may do a series of blogs on that trip someday.

3. I love to eat, but I’m a horrible cook. I’ve taken online classes, watched videos, read cook books, talk to people who are good cooks, and I’m still bad.

4. My favorite color is purple

5. My favorite flower is Calla Lilly

6. I only drink alcoholic beverages if I like the taste, not because I like being drunk (I don’t!) and I’m not trying to kill any pains or bad memories. I also prefer the high end liqueurs (Glenfiddich is my favorite scotch)

7. I love music. Singing (I’m not that good) dancing (I’m pretty good), listening, (I’m a pro!) and I can play the piano, flute and piccolo.

Next nominate 15 blogs I follow and like, trust me, these nominees have amazing blogs.

Million Minds in My Mind
