I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Super Swe-e-e-e-et Award

I received a Super Swe-e-e-e-et Award from Sharla over at  catnipolife, on 8 Sept.  Thank you Sharla.  Make sure to visit Sharla’s site here http://catnipoflife.wordpress.com/

Now let me address this without further ado.

First: The guidelines are to thank the person who gave you thing award. That would be Sharla at http://catnipoflife.wordpress.com/ Stop by and visit Sharla.

You’ll find poems, cat stories, and titbits and encouraging words about life.

Second: Answer the “Super Sweet” questions.

Third: Nominate a “Baker’s Dozen” (13) blogs to receive this award.

“Super Sweet” Questions:

1. Cookies or Cake? I’m actually more of a pie person, but because I must choose between these two, it will be cookies; because they are ‘grazing’ food that you can snack on while working and not make a mess.

2. Chocolate or Vanilla? Definitely chocolate. I don’t like vanilla anything unless it has chocolate with it.

3. What is your favorite sweet treat? Apple pie or chocolate muffins

4. When do you crave sweet things the most? This will probably really sound odd, but I rarely crave sweets.

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? Okay, I hate to disappoint, but I have no idea what this would be.

My Baker’s Dozen: For me this would be for Special posts on blogs with useful information, either related to books and writing, quotes for inspiration and life stories, book sites, posts that make you think about what you read long after you did, and much, much more! There are many blogs here that are exceptional, so it was hard to choose.

The awards go to:

  1. Thank you, Sunnie for accepting and posting the award! Hope you are having a GREAT weekend!

  2. Thank you Sharla,

    How could you not accept an award, although sometimes it is hard to come up with answers, questions, blogs to nominate, etc. You know how busy things can get. I try to write up a few posts as I have time and then schedule ahead for posting, so I can keep my blogs up - not that I always write ahead - but I'd like to, just in case things come up, as they tend to do in life.

    Also, my husband and I may take a week in Oct and get out of town, so I need to schedule posts for that time, even though no schedule is set yet. We haven't been on a vacation in years, unless you can call medical issues and family emergencies a vacation.

    Just doing my usual for the weekend - errands and a few things around the house that don't get doing during the week.


  3. Sunni, what an amazing surprise to see my name in your list of blogs. Thank you so much. I was reading down your list thinking I must click on these they sound really interesting, and then there was me!
    I so appreciate your giving me this award, because it means that you enjoy my blog, and what can be more satisfying. Thank you again, and please give your kitties a tickle behind the ear from me, Valerie

  4. Valerie,

    You are most welcome and yes I do enjoy your blog. I need to get around today and notify everyone on this list. I wasn't on the computer long enough yesterday to do that. That's why I just posted the whole list on the blog thread. That was the easiest way to go at the time.

    I really don't know if everyone here will participate, but if you want to, grab the award button and follow the instructions above.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting. Yes, I will give the cats a tickle - the neighbor gal too.


  5. So nice to meet you! How nice of you to grace us with this lovely award!! Since you blog about your darling kitties you may want to check out the Cat Blogospere, if you haven't already. I think you would find a lot of cool kitty-loving friends.

  6. Sunni,

    What a surprise to find out you chose my blog. Thank you. I will participate. I hope there's no deadline to find that many blogs. I don't think it'll be a problem, but my time is limited, that's why I ask. It might take me a while. It doesn't seem to be to complicated. I'm not very good at figuring some of this stuff out. In fact I can be a regular door knob sometimes. But I'll do my best to make you glad you chose me.

  7. Meg,

    Thank you for visiting and posting. I'm a real cat lover. I do intend to check out the Cat Blogosphere. I've done a little of that already but not near enough. I really liked your site so that is why I passed this award on to you.

    I'll be back to read more as time allows.


  8. Donna,

    Thank you for posting and accepting the award. No there is no time limit to post. I would say just within reason. Don't wait 6 months or anything.

    I have to agree that my time is limited too and finding the blogs you want to list is the biggest problem because there are so many gifted writers out there.

    Other than that, answering the questions is fairly easy and posting the rules, questions and answers on your blog along with the blogs you pick takes a little time. Then you also need to notify each person on your blog list after you post the award to your site. That will take a bit of time also, but not a whole lot.

    Just work on it as you have time. That's what I did and then posted it when I had everything. It really isn't all that complicated. I'm sure you'll do fine.


  9. Thank you and I wrote a response in http://journeyofmylifendestiny.blogspot.com/2012/09/tidbits-about-me.html

    Take care Sunni.

  10. Journey of life,

    Thanks for accepting and responding to the award. I looked at your site. I know it can be a bit much to respond to these things, but at the same time, it is an honor to be bestowed these awards from our blog mates. You handled it well - incorporating them all together.


  11. Thank you Sunni for the award. I accept it and will start spreading the news. : )

  12. Thank you Jeanette for accepting the award. Have fun with it.
