Heart Liebster AwardI have been nominated by http://mishunderstood.wordpress.com

for the Liebster Award. This is my third time being nominated for this award! Thank you. Words cannot express my appreciation. I am deeply touched. 🙂

Here are the 11 questions that I am to answer:

1. What gives you joy?

Being with friends, laying on the beach, and travelling.

2. What makes you angry?

Negative people.

3. Do you believe in ghosts?


4. What has been your favorite adventure so far?

The 600 foot climb to the top Dunn’s River Fall in Jamaica.

5. Assuming everyone is safe, if you only had time to grab one thing in the event of a fire, what would you grab?

This is easy…my pajamas!

6. How do you feel about violence in the media?

It is very distasteful.

7. What do you think is the oddest thing about you?

I can’t stand my feet to get wet, unless I am at the beach or bathing. I never go barefooted in the house. If I am caught in the rain wearing sandals, or flip-flops, I am in a foul mood until my feet are dry.

8.  What do you find relaxing?

Nature and music.

9.What makes you laugh?

Anyone with a sense of humor, and of course a babies laughs.

The Best Moment Award

Shine On Award


I have been nominated for the Shine On Award by Lorraine Marie Reguly http://poetryperfected.blogspot.ca

Thank you so much for selecting my blog. The blogosphere has millions of writers; I am elated that you somehow stumbled upon mine. I hereby graciously  accept…..” The Shine On Award”

I am to state seven things about myself.

1. I really like to write dark stories, but the readers don’t seem to enjoy them.

2. I can’t wait to get to an au natural beach, but please don’t share that bit of information.

3. The hardest decisions I make in a day is, what to wear. b) What to eat for dinner.

4. I am attracted to younger men.

5. I have a free spirit, and may try anything once. There are limits of course.

6. I wear bright colors.

7. I am a very picky eater, but not a cheap date!!!

I have declined to select nominees. The reason is, the blogs I follow are either published authors, do not accept awards, or are too busy writing to follow the rules.

Thank you so much Lorraine Marie Reguly!
