Who knew…?

Building the Dream

I profess ignorance to the world of blogging 🙂 I started, more or less, on a whim because people kept asking us to give them pictures, or how things were going.  So, when Project Patrol asked if I would accept the Liebster award for new bloggers, I was humbled, grateful and curious…. I immediately looked it up and liked what I saw.  It is essentially a “chain letter” approach that gets new bloggers exposure. I call it paying it forward!  If I have blogs that I follow and find interesting, perhaps others that have stumbled upon my blog will like it as well. After all, like most things in life – you gotta start somewhere, right?

Among the rules of the award I have found that a blogger must have less than 1000 (some have stated 200) followers and the person nominating gets to ask 10 questions that the nominee answers.  In turn – when I nominate someone, they will answer 10 questions that I ask of them.  I am not as efficient as Project Patrol… I do not have the 10 people lined up yet (although I have a pretty good idea of who they will be 🙂 ), nor do I have my questions formulated as yet.

But in the spirit of the award – here are the answers to the questions posited to me:

  1. How has blogging helped you?  It keeps me focused – sort of… LOL I have worked out many issues in my head (and there are a lot of issues floating in my head) by putting it in the blog.  😀
  2. Have you ever been on TV whether local or national? Yes – background fodder.
  3. What is your favorite time of year and why? Asking me to pick favorite anything is like asking me to choose from a menu — it depends on my mood. 🙂  However, I will say I love the spring because of the ‘newness’ and – as allergic as I am – the blossoms are amazing.  A close second is fall because of the relief from the summer heat and the colors.
  4. If you could have/pick a super power, what would it be? I already have one 🙂 superpower
  5. What’s your favorite animal? No way – I can’t do it!  I can tell you that legless lizards (snakes) are my least favorite – to the point of an irrational phobia.
  6. If you could only bring one item with you (wherever you’re going) what would it be?  Well they are not a thing, but my family, or at least Kem.  He is my best friend, husband, lover, confidant… world.
  7. Would you rather scuba dive or sky dive? Scuba! Airplanes are not meant to jump out of (!) and there is such a phenomenal world to be seen under the waves.
  8. When is the last time you wrote a handwritten letter to someone? About a month ago. It is such a lost art!
  9. Have you ever had a pen pal? Nope
  10. What is a goal you’re working towards? To be able to provide our family with nutritious food, shelter and clothing (basic necessities) without either of us going to a ‘normal’ job… in other words, to love our everyday life and where we are in it.

Again, thanks for the nod Project Patrol, and those of you that I read religiously – be aware, an invite is probably headed your way.
