Acceptance of Several Awards

Thank you, Autumn!!!

Reader’s Appreciation Award

I will explain this award exactly as Autumn  had read it to be when she read about it.

As she wrote, awards are like gifts – they are meant to be a blessing.

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.

Nominations:  Much too difficult, I invite any of the kind readers to accept the nomination!


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.

The Creative Chaos Award

The Rules

Firstly: Thank the person who gave you the Award.

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

Thirdly: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog.

Three Tasks

First Task: Three weird things I  do:   1. I have music playing almost 100% of the time and sing a lot   2. I sleep with night lights all over the place   3. I will not leave my house without earrings in my ears

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

That’s OK, I will have some chai tea

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 would be rescued quickly, I would contact Autumn by our twin ESP! The other question, kind of personal and why would anybody ask such a question?


Quotes About Smiles

I was thinking about smiling and smiles. How often times when someone is feeling low, you give them a smile. It’s so nice to see the sad feeling or low person feel cheered and smile back. How smiling when you meet up with anyone, just smile! Most people will respond nicer to a smile than a frown! I think smiling is just a “feel good” happening. I personally would much rather be remembered for smiling than frowning. I wasn’t sure if I would find anything…But I searched for quotes on Smiles and Smiling. Wow and Yay, I smiled because I found some really good ones! 🙂 I sure hope all of you kind readers enjoy them as much as I did…And it makes you smile! 🙂

Wish …

We make our own magic, it’s true

each day is brand new

Close your eyes, twirl around

don’t make much sound

Wish about what you want right now

don’t forget to take a bow

magic happens each time

with a sort of rhyme

Believe it’s real

can you feel ?

It’s works

with a sort of quirk

We do our best

and don’t forget the rest,

those who wish on a star

The sages know where you are

magic whirls here and there

and everywhere

It swirls

and twirls

So make your wish, if you please

It will show up with ease

Just believe …
