Thanks for the Award

inspiring2bblog2bawardMy dear friend and frequent visitor, P.S. I love soap…has nominated me for an award. THANK-YOU!

You can visit her site :

Part of the acceptance process requires that I offer 7 tidbits about myself:

  1. I am the eldest of three children.
  2. I believe having a pet is essential to my well-being.
  3. I enjoy watching children with an eye on their innocence.
  4. I am especially curious about human nature and Mother Nature.
  5. As a child, I spent many happy summers on my grandparents’ dairy farm.
  6. My first celebrity/character crush was on Guy Williams as Zorro…my last one was William Petersen as Gil Grissom (CSI) 😉
  7. Making others laugh is an endeavor that I thoroughly enjoy.

Most of my blogging friends do not accept awards so I ask you to check out the “Blogs I Follow” in order to find some awesome sites.


Award Time Fun

reality-blog-award-logoA wonderful honor to have been chosen for the Reality Blog Award. Many thanks to my new friend MisBehaved Woman…

Please stop by to sample her blog. It’s excellent!

The award requires me to answer the following questions:

1. If you could change something what would you change?

I’d like to hear the truth from politicians for a change, but to keep my request realistic, how about  starting with term limits in the US Congress?

2. If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

Every age is a wonder unto itself.

3. What one thing really scares you?

That my grandchildren may not have the freedoms that I have enjoyed when they are my age.

4. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it?

I’d love to write a book based upon my blog posts…I believe I will accomplish it too!

5. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

My own granddaughter. I’d be very interested to see the world through the eyes of a child in today’s world.

I nominate the following blogs for this award:

Kreativ Blogger Award

A great BIG thank-you to Gramdalin( for this very pretty and delightful nomination.

Grandmalin and I first met at We instantly connected because we both adore our grandkids and think much alike. Her musings are always entertaining and I do wish you would visit her and tell her sillyfrog sent you too.

Here are the rules for those nominated:

  1. Copy the Kreativ Blogger Award logo and place it in your post.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  3. List 7 things about you that people might find interesting.
  4. Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Kreativ Blogger Award.
  5. Leave a comment on the blogs you nominate to let them know about the award.

Seven things about me are:

1. I used to watch those old films with warriors on horseback who charge at each other across an open plain. I liked to  imagine catching one of those unmanned horses and riding off with it. I’d try to pick out a lovely one and hoped it would throw off its rider during the battle.

2. I’ve been looking for an old-fashioned stick candy that I used to get at a country store when I was a kid. I describe it as a white chalky-textured vanilla meringue. How I wish that I could find it?

3. I still live in the same home town where I was born. Both of my siblings and my father does too. (Dad was born there also.)

4. I prefer a cold environment to a hot one. I find heat and humidity unbearable.

5. My favorite aromas are pine needles and horses.

6. I very much dislike dressing- up. Sweats and sneakers suit me fine.

7. I am still thoroughly upset about the revelation that negative numbers exist. Why didn’t they tell us from the start? Never saw that coming.


My seven nominees are all worthy of your visits and a big applause .There are absolutely no strings attached with this award. The nominees are here for sharing. No one should feel that they must pass it on.

7 random things about me:

1. I very much enjoy watching thunderstorms.

2. I’d very much enjoy meeting Mark Twain and chatting. Time machine anyone?

3. I admire people who devote themselves to one single goal~ Olympic Champions and Jane Goodall are fine examples. But sampling many things and starting new projects, and learning more, is my personal nature. Everything is fascinating. and life is too short to specialize.

4. I am an artist and have yet to compile a portfolio of  my artwork to display on my blog.

5. The Three Stooges are hilarious in my book.

6. I describe being outdoors as feeling “comfortably insignificant” , if you get my drift.

7. I believe in ghosts, Big Foot, and luck.

7 Random Things about Sillyfrogsusan.

  1. I am a “land lubber”. Although I thoroughly enjoy visiting the ocean, I am always very pleased and happy to go home to the hills and forests of the Northeastern United States.
  2. My favorite word is anthropomorphism . It not only makes me sound very intelligent (and rolls off of the tongue nicely), it is all about the discussion of animals having” human” feelings. Other animal lovers will also tell you that animals do experience many emotions. The hard part is proving it to the nonbelievers. 🙂
  3. My favorite color is plaid.
  4. I enjoy laughing more than anything. Glad it has no calories…because food is another love of mine.
  5. I think being a mentor to kids is the most noble thing a person can do.
  6. I had a pony when I was a kid.
  7. My family is my greatest joy (of course, pets included.)!

Now, drum roll please…My nominated bloggers are:

These bloggers have been faithful visitors and friends of mine. Many have extremely witty blogs and beautiful photos! They all share my love of Nature.  Please take time to visit them. You won’t be sorry 🙂

Another Award…I’m Very Flattered.

Thank-you for this award Teresa Cleveland Wendel( author of as well as a new book on Amazon:)

I would, in turn, like to share my fortune with a few bloggers who brighten my day with their wonderful comments.

The Sunshine Award goes to the following:…Paula …Eric

All three have excellent and entertaining blogs!

Now I am required to answer a few questions about myself. There were no questions with this award so I’ll ask myself a few.

1.How many siblings do you have?

Two…a younger brother and a younger sister.

2. What is your favorite food?

Porterhouse steak cooked on the grill…extra rare.

3. What profession might you have enjoyed other than what you do?

Sometimes I think a movie special effects artist would have been fun but I think I would have made a great naturalist/writer/photographer. I would have enjoyed field work. I could be happy alone with nature.


Hope everyone checks out the blogs recommended on this post! Happy Springtime!
