The Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! Not once, but TWICE!

Thanks a bunch to Kelleys DIY for nominating me for this wonderful award. As a reasonably new blogger, I am honored to have another blogger think my blog is worthy. Be sure to visit her site for a ton of fabulous DIY ideas and projects!

Being Aunt Debbie also nominated me. Many thanks to her too! I am grateful to be recognized as a real blogger. Check out her blog: she is a crotcheter, crafter and DIY-er. She also shares funny and inspirational posts.

What is the Liebster Award? The Liebster is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcoming.

From Kelley’s DIY. . .

My questions are:

1) What is your favorite color?  I favor red, though I rarely wear it.

2) Cats or Dogs? Big dogs

3) Which is your ideal place: Beach, Lake, Ocean, Forest and why? Lake, because it’s more a “country-side” setting.

4) Favorite Scary Movie? I try not to watch scary movies.

5) One Wish? Better health.

6) Dream Vacation? Spending a week on small island in Maine.

7) Saver or spender? Unfortunately, a spender most of the time.

8) Which season do you prefer? (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter)? Got to be spring!

9) Where’s your happy place? In my garden.

10) Why did you start your blog? I enjoy teaching and sharing things I have learned. My blog also keeps me motivated and accountable.

From Being Aunt Debbie . . .

My questions are:

  1. What is the scariest thing that ever happened to you? When I was a flight attendant, I was working on a flight out of Chicago and we hit severe turbulence.
  2. Are you afraid of snakes? Spiders? Snakes, yes most definitely! Spiders not so much, as long as they aren’t huge.
  3. Do you send out holiday cards or use the internet for sending your holiday greetings? I send a few cards.
  4. Do you have a YouTube channel of your own? If so, please share your link here! No, definitely not…no way…ain’t gonna happen.
  5. Who is your favorite author and why? I don’t read print material much anymore. Not enough sense to put the books down.
  6. What is your favorite song and why? “When a Man Loves a Woman” – Percy Sledge, because every woman wants to be loved like that.
  7. What is your favorite food? Coconut Shrimp with Sweet Potato Fries
  8. Velcro or laces on your shoes? Neither, slip on shoes, or zippered boots.
  9. Do you like thunderstorms? Yes, unless we have that techno lightening.
  10. What is your favorite healthy dish? Stuffed Zucchini, maybe? Eating healthy isn’t one of my strong suits.

    1. LOL Yeah, that was kind of fun answering the questions. 😀 Snakes startle me too. But when we found one in the house, even though we laughed the whole time trying to catch it and get it outside, I was pretty skittish for weeks.

      1. Oh goodness, we have had a few get in the house too! This is an old house and it has a lot of cracks and crevices. Not only does our poor inside/outside cat walk cautiously outside, but he feels he has to do inside as well. It’s really very amusing to watch him sneak along. He’s fine in the winter but when the snakes come out, watch him jump! Lol.
