The ever so much fun to read and follow person I know as Gary, passed this on to me. I recently friended him on FB and have shared his cooking posts now and again. Gary is learned, wise, and does not type with an accent! (You can also find him on Youtube) These awards are amusing and enjoyable. I don’t often pass them on, but will do my best. I was gratified to learn Gary’s list of what to do with this award was much shorter than the creator’s! Okoto Enigma has about 9 bits to the rules to follow, Gary’s is pared down a bit. Hooray! Yup, I am somewhat lazy. I’m also using up mum’s internet data by hanging out too long online! No matter. Gary is worth it.
Other bloggers I’d like people to find include Ms. Brown at Sea Starr (un)Leashed, Amrita at Of Opinions, and Boundless Blessings. I know, that is only 3 of the many I love and adore on WP. They are each very different. Many bloggers have a LOT of followers, some of those naturally find followers on their own. Dariakill and Beauty Beyond Bones (that latter is a beautiful journey from a place many people have been) are also favorites as are many great people who have NSFW blogs like Michael, or Becky, or……oh gracious, I’m never going to get the rest of this written out!!! Mum’s net data is vanishing like snow on a summer day! And I need to let these people know it is there turn…Sheesh! OK, now I need to ask questions. Ummmm, questions that someone might want to answer if they pass this on…..
1. If I planted something in my garden to remind me of you, what would I plant?
2. Do you remember the first book you remember reading? Or one of the first books? What was it?
3. If you are familiar with them, who is your favorite Muppet?
4. Where do you blog from? A laptop? phone?
5. Something silly….How do you mark a page in a book when you need to stop reading?
And the ones Gary asked of us.
1-What is my favorite food. As much as I love making food, it represents carbs. I don’t really have a favorite. There are some things I like. Caramel (the birthday treats on Gary’s page today about made me drool on my Ipad!), Kettle Korn (this food makes ME taste good!), Alaskan fishes, chocolate covered almost anything, and Jr. Mints. I count carbs every time I put food in my mouth. Ridiculous.
2-Gary wants me to choose a word to describe myself. PIFFLE! (No, not that one) Forget-me-not. I change colors, am always around, can be annoying (those seeds stick to cloth!), am small and cute, am a great filler, and have a golden heart (really, I do!).
3-Favorite Social Media Platforms. I often live on FB when I am in Oregon. I have such a boring life, I live through others experiences! I have connected with friends from Kindergarten and relatives (mum has two fb pages….), I have helped ‘manage’ pages, I have met friends I love dearly thru no real reason other than those people knew someone I did! I think there are 4 of those who regularly check up on me when ones who ‘know’ me rarely do! I do have several blogs, but I don’t tweet or whatever anywhere else.
4-Do I like the scent of my farts? I laughed when I read this. One of my author friends loves the scent of skunk! A nursing friend explained how farting was better than sneezing and I recall a story about a celebrity who had a fit on a submarine park ride when the pass was gas. No. Cannot say I care for mine at all. One of those things which reminds me how much of a sense of humor God has, but I still don’t like it!
There, I think I am now finally ready to post this. I hope I did everything right!!!!!!!
