Liebster Award

Fellow blogger, Sandra Cox, nominated me for the Liebster Award.  Thanks, Sandra, for making my day.

For those of you who aren't familiar with it: The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers. The goal of this grand gesture is to help find blogs which are worthy of a bigger following... sort of like finding diamonds scattered amongst tiny grains of sparkling, white, distant sands. You imagine they are there but you have to look hard enough to pick up their beauty and inspiration against the decadence of a jealous sun. 

In German, Liebster means kindest, beloved, valued and welcome.

The rules for accepting this award are as follows:

List 6 random facts about myself. 
1. I don't like going bare foot
2. I love  plain, cheese pizza. I could eat pizza every day.
3. The only stick I can drive is a broom.
4. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 21 years old.
5. I don't drink coffee though I love the smell.
6. I don't wear dresses anymore.

Answer 6 questions from the blogger who nominated me. 
1. If you were an animal, what would you be?
I have always felt drawn to black bears. Black bears are protective of their young, know how to have fun, and know when to nap.

2. What's your favorite genre?

3. When reading do you prefer paper or a hand held device?
I like reading on a tablet. The tablet doesn't weigh much, take up much room, and I can carry my entire library with me.

4. What's your favorite vacation spot?
the sun room.

5. What's your favorite charity?
My dad had Alzheimer's so that is the charity that is near and dear to me.

6. If given the choice where would you live?
That's a hard question because there are so many places depending on the season. A lighthouse on the New England coast, the German Alps, Bermuda.

Nominate 6 other blogs who have less than 200 followers and let them know they have been nominated.
Post 6 new questions for those bloggers to answer (If they wish to accept the award, it’s completely optional).

I nominate:
The Young One at Corinne Kennedy - My Art
Robin  at Pink House Studio
FinnBadger at envelope100
Donna at Just A Lucky Dog
Joan at A Rolling Crone
Elaine at Elaine's Life

Here are your questions:
1. Do you play a musical instrument?
2. Do you have allergies?
3. What's your earliest memory?
4.  What was your first job?
5. Black licorice, love it or hate it?
6. What did you want to be when you grew up?
