The Liebster Award

This morning, still with a heavy heart filled with thoughts about and continuing with last night's post, I turned on my laptop and started reading my emails as I usually do. Nothing out of the ordinary, always checking my personal and blog email accounts first. I have my priorities right, don't I ;). As the emails come in, I read the blogs that I follow first and this morning was no different. I read An Unkept Mind and then read that the lovely Miss C from An Unkept Mind nominated me for The Liebster Award. That put a smile on my face and made my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.

It felt good to be nominated and also by a blogger who I have only very recently started following and who has only recently started following me. The added bonus is being introduced to new blogs recommended by a blogger whose blog I enjoy reading. I know December is a hectic rush for everyone, but if you have some downtime and you are looking for a good blog to read, please visit An Unkept Mind, you will enjoy her blog as much as I do, that I am certain of. One recent post that is very touching is her birthday dedication to her mother, which you can read over here.

Miss C has made it very easy and has only asked one question. There are various different rules for The Liebster Award and I found this post here to explain how it works and I am going to change the rules a bit, because it is December and a mad rush for everyone.

Liebster Award Rules:
1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. answer 11 5 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
6. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!

Here are my nominations:

1. Skimming Stones
2. Life On A Wine Farm
3. Minneola's & Margaritas
4. The Journey
5. Foreign Geek

My Question From Miss C - What was your most difficult post to write or your favourite:
Any post that I have written about Clinton is extremely difficult. Whether it is a happy memory or dealing with his death and grief, it is extremely difficult and it takes a whole lot of deleting and starting over.

My Questions For My Nominees If You Want To Accept The Nomination:

1. When Did You Start Blogging
2. Why Did You Start Blogging
3. What Is Your Favourite Post
4.  E-Reader Or Paper Book
5. Cat or Dog Person; Both; Other or Neither {hopefully not neither :)}

I totally cheated and Googled these questions, I know it is busy busy time for all of you, so if you don't get to do it this year, next year is fine. I did mine, before my final post before we go away.

Thank you so much Miss C for the nomination, it was totally unexpected, but truly appreciated.

Thank you for reading my blog.
