creativeblogger award paintbrush

Hi. I am so happy that Puppy Doc has nominated me for the creative blogger award. I meant to get to this last week, but as many of you know, I was sick in the hospital. So, now is as a good a time as any to accept this award and to proceed with the rest of the process.

Puppy Doc is one of my favorite blogs. Check out her latest post HERE

I love these awards because it is great networking and a wonderful way to get to know each other. I get to check out blogs I have not seen before, as I am looking for nominees. I get to let all of you know about new blogs.

It is also fun to see the things that the people post in response to the questions asked and it is fun to write the questions for the next group!

The Usual Rules are as Follows

1. Thank the person that nominated you and post a link to their blog – PUPPY DOC

2. I played the flute in the marching band in college

3. I played the bass guitar in a jazz band in high school

4. I was once in love with my best friend in college and we had 4 happy years together. I often wonder if  I made a big mistake when I let him go. because I never found anyone that I was happy like that with again.

Questions for me

Here are answer to the questions. By the time I got to this, the original post had been deleted, so I will make up my own questions and then also give the same questions to my nominees.

1. Do you find yourself thinking about blogging, when you are doing something else? How does this play into what you blog about?

I do think about blogging during the day. I will wonder if the situation , conversation, or incident is blog worthy. For example,,,This evening I had a wonderful conversation with an older lady that I take care of. She told me this wonderful story about how she met this man, who also lives at the facility. They have been together for a couple o years. The story was so wonderful that I just had to write it.

I decided that this particular story was great for the Kindness Blog, which I write for sometimes. So, you will all have to wait to see if and when the Kindness blog published it, to find out how these two old people fell in love !

2. If you could live anywhere, and money was no object, where would you choose to live?

I love the ocean ans warm weather. I would probably move back to Monterey California, where I lived for a year once.

I have nightmares of being trapped in buildings that are either locked from the outside of that I cannot find my way out of.

I have nightmares about being in a vehicle that falls over a cliff

I love my bog because it helps me to connect with other people. I want to keep connecting and meeting new people. I also would like to publish a poetry book and maybe a self help type of book.

    1. You are sweet for saying that 🙂
      You probably are still working on some of these. They are time consuming aren’t they? I do like to pass them on. When you can find a new blogger who has never gotten an award, it is really fun to give it to them. I always take time to search for a few blogs that I like, that are newer. That is part of why it takes me a while to do these.
      But when they end me that message that they are so honored and excited, then it makes it worth the extra time I took, looking for them.
      It feels like when I get to bring the flower deliveries to my residents at work. I always ask the secretary to let me take flower deliveries to the rooms.

    1. You are welcome. Passing the awards is mu favorite part of getting them. The rest of it is a lot of work. They take me at least 2 hours to complete. That is why I usually take 2 or 3 posts broken up to complete them. But last night I just sucked it up and sat for the 2 hours and did the work.

      I love passing them on. I always take some time to search for new blogs to give them to. I always like to include a few new bloggers, so I search Word Press for blogs that are good and are written by young people or new bloggers. But them I also give some of the awards to bloggers that have been around a while and have worked hard for a long time.

      Because I have this whole process, it takes me 2 hours to do it.
      Happy to include you.
