Liebster Award

8 Aug

A Week Of Awards

Hi! I’m Vashti! Welcome to my blog. Thank you for stopping by. In the last couple of months awards have been raining down on me like blessings from Heaven! (I can feel the heat rising in my cheeks as I write this). Words cannot express how grateful and honored I feel to know that my writing and blog are enjoyed by fellow bloggers and writers that I like and admire. In the next few weeks I will be posting different awards. Please do not take this the wrong way. I am not boasting. Yes, I am proud to have gotten these awards, but I’m even more excited about forwarding the love by honoring other deserving bloggers and writers.

I was presented with this award by these awesome and talented people. Please visit their sites. They all have a lot to offer.

  2. What’s your earliest memory? Getting lost at a carnival when I was five. (I wasn’t really lost. I just lagged behind for a minute)
  3. What was your favorite school subject? Reading, Writing, Science… (Nerd Alert)
  4. Have you EVER had a need to use algebra away from a school environment? Nope.
  5. Do you understand modern art? I understand some, but I don’t fall for it. I believe real skill lies in traditional art.
  6. Most enjoyable book? I’m a big fan of Stephen King. I loved reading The Eyes of the Dragon, It, Misery and so many more.
  7. Ever spent money to buy something you really wanted, although you could hardly afford it at the time? I’m a very sensible person, but come on, I’m a woman, of course I have. Ha, ha!
  8. Apart from when you were a child, have you ever danced in the rain? Yes, I have. I love the rain, and in Florida it is bright and sunny one moment, and the next it’s pouring rain during certain times of the year. I’ve been caught outside many times in the rain. I love watching the rain, listening to the rain and I love the feel of it coming down on me. (I run for shelter if I hear thunder or see lightning though)
  9. What country would you like to visit that you have not yet been to? Japan, Thialand, Australia, Chile. I love to travel.

10. What makes you grumpy? I tend to get a bit cranky when I’m tired, hungry or when I haven’t gotten enough sleep.

11. What’s your ‘Go to’ switch to make you feel better on a gray day? Read a good book, watch a funny movie, dessert, music, play with my dogs, call a friend.

      Hi AJ! Don’t worry I know how it is. I am so behind on my awards it’s quite embarrassing at this point. I’m just going to have to dedicate one post for all the awards that are still pending. I’ll spend a weekend just working on that. Anyway, thank you very much. You’re very deserving of your award, so enjoy it. 😀 BTW, it’s nice to hear from you.
