A Lovely Touch of Reality Awards

 

Life has been hectic since fall began and school has started.  There are many nights when I just do not have the time or the energy to write a blog post. I think many of us “postaday” bloggers are finding it difficult to meet the goal.  Therefore, it is heartwarming to me to find that even when I am not on target, I still have people who will read my musings and even take the time to nominate me for an award.

Cher over at Authentic Photography has graciously nominated Grandmother Musings for the REALITY BLOG AWARD and the LOVELY BLOG AWARD.  Cher is originally from Maine, but has recently moved to Lakeland, Florida with her husband.  Her photos are real and reflect her keen insight into everyday life.  Please go and visit Authentic Photography. You will enjoy her unique photo expressions.


These are five questions that Cindy passed on for the Reality Blog Award and that I have decided to answer for both awards:

1) If you could change something, what would you change?

I would change all the hatred in the world for other cultures and races.

 

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

I would repeat at 30.  I would tell my scared self that I am powerful and worthy of great things.

 

3) What one thing really scares you?

Losing someone, I love.

 

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

One dream I have always had is to own a house on a lake.  I think it will eventually happen.

 

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be? 

I think it would be interesting to be the President or someone else in a high seat of power.  I have a feeling it is a lot more difficult to be in that position than I imagine.

 

I am nominating 10 wonderful blogs that have inspired me in some way. Please take the time to visit these sites and see what makes them so great.

There are no specific rules to these awards.  Each nominee is free to accept and do what he or she will with his or her award. It is my sincere hope that with this nomination each blog will know how much I appreciate and respect their work.  This nomination is for both the Reality Award and the One Lovely Blog award.

Blog Awards

 

It has been busy around Grandmother’s house the last few weeks with back to school, family visits, and weddings.  There have been days when I just could not go to my computer to post.  Nevertheless, while I was busy, good news was flowing in from Pat Wood  who has nominated Grandmother Musings for the One Lovely Blog Award.  I also received a badge that says 200 wonderful bloggers have been following Grandmother Musings.  I am constantly amazed that anyone, much less 200 followers, would read my musings.  It is humbling and an honor to know that I have reached that many people.

I wish to thank Pat for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  Pat’s blog–  PatWoodBlogging is a place for her to write and test out her desire to be a published novelist.  You can read her “gentle” short story, A Fairy Story that has been published in Woman’s Magazine.  She also has a few other stories,  Clean Death, A Taste of Death, and The Scent of Lavender available to her readers to peruse at their leisure.   This superbly written blog is worth a look and a comment.

Rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:

1.   Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you, and post the Award on your site.

2.   Describe 7 things about yourself.

3.   Nominate 15 other bloggers.

7 things about Grandmother Musings…

1.    Wrinkles on my clothes really bother me.  I iron and my new method is to use the  Wrinkle Release spray.  Surprisingly, the spray works on most fabrics and saves me ironing time in the morning.

2.   I never intend on being a gray-haired grandmother.  Why should we be gray?  There are plenty of colorings out there to avoid the gray taking over.

3.   My houseplants are always neglected in the winter. The plants always survive until summer break when I can pay attention to them.

4.   This weekend I went Disk Golfing for the first time.  I liked it, although, I had a score of 25 over par.  I figure I will have to get better if I keep at it. LOL!

5.   I once found a beautiful dress to wear to a wedding for $8.00. I will tell you about it, sometime.

6.   Reading glasses are ugly and I dislike wearing mine. Unfortunately, I seem to need them more every day.

7.   I love to drive!
