Generous Awards

My friend Autumn at Autumn Sunshine had generously nominated me for 5 awards in one day few days ago. 5 awards!!! How wonderful! Thank you so much Autumn! Check out her site and see how talented she is. Her site features her beautiful poems, stories, quotations and of course her blog.

Since I already accepted the Kreativ and Versatile Blogger Award in my earlier posts, I will accept only the other three awards which are :

Reader’s Appreciation Award

The Rules

  1. List six nominations
  2. Link the Award Image back to the one who presented it to you. But if you can’t manage it, please do not fuss and fret.The “rules” are not legally binding which means, if you’re not happy to be nominated, please have some mercy and grace for me. (Autumn didn’t do compliance checks and neither will I!) As she said, if you do not want the award please don’t feel like you MUST accept. This is supposed to be fun, too.

The Nominees

As a token of my appreciation, I nominate my recent followers for these 3 awards. Thank you so much for following my blog. I look forward to getting to know you more!

Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandment Award

The “Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award” has to do with a woman of the same name, known for being very elegant and having high expectations, and who is committed to maintaining integrity, good manners and behavior, as well as a rich sense of humor. Thank you, Autumn, for considering me for this high honored award!  Now, I must answer 10 Questions “honestly” about myself, as part of my acceptance (rules) of this award.

  2. What keeps you up at night. sometimes my baby while other times thinking too much about so many things
  3. Whom would you like to be? myself
  4. What are you wearing now? pajamas
  5. What scares you? many things but remembering God’s promises calms and assures my heart (Psalms 27:1, Hebrews 13: 5-6)
  6. What are the best and worst things about blogging? best – meeting wonderful, creative, and friendly bloggers/ worst – lack of time to visit them all regularly
  7. What was the last website you looked at? Autumn Sunshine
  8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Nothing.
  9. Slankets, yes or no? No.
  10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you. Autumn is creative, talented, wonderful, kind and super friendly!

Third award is …

The Creative Chaos Award

The Rules

Firstly: Thank the person who gave you the Award. Done!

Secondly: Take your best shot at the 3 tasks listed below.

Thirdly: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog. Done!

The Tasks

First Task: Three weird things I  do:

  • I enjoy eating potato fries dipped on ice cream/ sundae
  • I don’t like to sleep in total darkness
  • I talk to myself sometimes

Second Task: You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?” 

Not a problem because I don’t drink coffee.

Third Task: You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cellphone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your under pants and why?

I won’t worry because my hubby will rescue me. I always tell him where I go and who I am with. Besides God is just a prayer away, he will be there in a split second. Last question is weird, I don’t think I need to answer that.

Thanks again Autumn!!!

Commenter Award

Yay! I received another award, the Commenter Award from Gabby & Autumn at  .  Thank you both so much!

The Commenter’s Award is a little different from the most awards. Instead of awarding others for their own blogs, you will be giving recognition to those who comment on your own blog regularly, take the time to really read your posts, and provide you with feedback via their comments. The nominations are the easiest part. You should nominate the six bloggers who comment most frequently on your blog. How do you know who does this most often? Good question!

You will find your Top Recent Commenters on your site stats page on the bottom, right corner. If you do not see this, click on the Screen Options in the top, right corner and be sure that “Comments” is checked. If you are good about responding to every comment, then you will be the first one in the list. It is the next six commenters on the list that you will nominate and pass this award to. But wait! You may nominate one more person. This person can either be a brand new commenter on your blog, the very last comment you have received (most recent), or the one who has posted your most favorite comments. This seventh nomination is your choice, but please do tell us why you have chosen them as your seventh.

Here are my top “commenters” and I am truly grateful for their continuing support!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

To all who commented, liked, and simply read my posts – thank you!
