  • anybody nominated can nominate up to eight other bloggers
  • the nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator
  • the questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions

Mischenko questions :

1.  If you could turn back time and do something differently, what would it be? Related image

 Keep the job that I absolutely loved and very much regret making a “lateral” move within the department that lead to a mistake and me leaving…


2.  Name three or four things you most appreciate in your life (family, job, etc.)

3.  Are you a city mouse or a country mouse?

1754250 I probably could not settle in the city even though I have thought about what it would be like to live in one.  I was born/raised in the country on a farm – so I am a country mouse.


Noriko questions:

  • What would you like bloggers to do more of that they aren’t doing right now?

  • I don’t think anything – I think blogging is for any and everyone and isn’t under any pressure/demand to follow a specific format.  That’s what I enjoy the most about this new hobby!


  • Tell us 4 things about yourself, one of which is not true… and see if we can guess.

Which one do you think is not true?

  1. I love English cottages with English flower gardens and want so badly to have both but have neither.
  2. My husband, Robin (Hispanic) and I have been together for 12 years, I am fluent in Spanish but never speak it.
  3. I’ve been on a cruise to the Bahamas and am petrified of the water.
  4. I have not drank a soft drink in three years.


  • Describe a perfect day that balances all the things you love.

Waking up beside my husband with no worries or scheduled plans.  My girls and grand kids come over for a short, sweet and clean up after themselves visit. Enjoying a romantic stress free evening with my husband under the stars listening to some great music, dance, eat a wonderful dinner and not having to prepare said dinner, clean up dishes or do quick chores – nothing but jump into comfy clothes and bed to end the perfect day.

My Nominee’s:






Robin’s Questions:

  • Tell us 4 things about yourself, one of which is not true and see if we can guess!
  • Describe a perfect day that balances all the things you love.
  • What is your weakness?

No pressure if you don’t want to participate, but I feel that you deserve this award! Thanks for reading. 🙂

  1. I want to guess and say that either the English cottage one or the fluent in Spanish one are the fibs. Cause I know you hate water and I feel like I read about the cruise before.
    As for your questions, you can find here half the answers here:
    I’m very passionate about reading and learning and loving my life. I’m also very passionate about animal welfare.
    My greatest weakness is caring too much sometimes to the point that I end up hurt or I get skeptical about everyone else and shut down.
    Congratulations! Cheers to more awards coming your way girlie 😁
