Liebster Blog Award!

Haha—I think this is about the third time I’ve been awarded this particular…um…award. This time, it comes from Rebecca Moore, AKA Whimsey Keith. Thank you!

The rules:
When a blogger receives this award, he/she gets to answer 11 questions posed by the person who gave the award, pick five blogs to give the award to (which have fewer than 200 followers), and make up 11 new questions for the bloggers to answer.

~Whimsey’s Questions~

1. What, to you, is the definition of joy? What comes to mind is the image of a glass of sparkling cider—bubbling up until it overflows. It’s hard to describe joy in terms of emotion, especially since we tend to think of it as extreme happiness. Perhaps true joy is more of an inner peace and calm in times of trouble, or a sense of satisfaction in a job well done, especially for someone else.
2. If you were like Helen Keller, both blind and deaf, and I offered you three days to see and hear, what would you do? Employ your imaginations! Hard to say. If I’d been blind and deaf all my life, I’d want to see and hear everything there was to see and hear! But I think I’d go into the country and see the wildflowers in the meadows, listen to the birds singing in the woods and hear the wind whispering in the trees. Then I’d go to the ocean and see the mighty waves pounding the beach and collect shells and sea-glass.
3. If I offered you coffee, hot chocolate, or tea, which would you take? Hot chocolate, definitely! Tea is fine, but hot chocolate is the queen of hot beverages!
4. Would you rather take a three day vacation to Disneyland or a three week vacation touring the vast majority of America's historical sights? I think I’d prefer the three-week deal, as Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park and New England in the Fall are things I’d like to see someday.
5. If you were offered a cabin in the woods, a cottage on the beach, or an apartment in the city, which would you choose? I’d choose the cabin in the woods—the redwoods, that is. Then I’d be near the beach, too! ;-)
6. If you had the opportunity to go parasailing, would you go? Yes! They have parasailing on Lake Coeur d’Alene, and it looks like fun!
7. You have suddenly become a millionaire. What are you going to do with your money? Ten percent of it goes to the Church—the congregation we meet with plus other Believers we know who live elsewhere—and then the rest would be evenly divided between Mom, Peter and me. $300,000 is still a LOT of money to play with!
8. Guess what! You have happened upon a time machine!!! Which historical figure are you going to spend the day with? I’d visit Jane Austen while she was writing Northanger Abbey and try to convince her to name Catherine Mooreland’s floozy friend something besides Isabella. Something ugly—Maude, for example—or something kinda pompous, like Augusta.
9. Out of all the heroines in historical fiction, who do you admire the most?
Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. She’s spunky, witty and loyal to those she loves. Yes, she’s a bit cynical and quick to judge, but once the true facts are before her, she quickly admits her mistakes and learns from the experience.
10. Out of all the heroes in historical fiction, who do you most admire? Arthur Clennham from Little Dorritt. Wow—what a guy. He treats everyone he meets with respect, and when he hears of an injustice his family has done to the Dorritts, he does everything in his power to try and make it right. (At least, that’s how he was in the miniseries. I’ve yet to find a complete copy of the book….)
11. And lastly, if you were offered a pet baby mule or a pet baby goat, which would you adopt? The goat-kid, especially if it was a milk-goat. Free raw milk!

I award:

~Kellie (Accordion to Kellie)
~Tasha (Day By Day)
~Michelle (Free Indeed)
…and I don’t know anyone else who has under 200 followers.

My questions for you to answer:

1.)   What was the first Bible verse you ever memorized?
2.)   Ice cream or frozen yogurt?
3.)   Describe a favorite outfit:
4.)   What would you define as Godly music?
5.)   Where is/are your favorite place(s) to go in Summertime?
6.)   Is/are there any food(s) you refuse to eat?
7.)   What would you consider to be the ideal pet?
8.)   Do you wear jewelry? If so, what style(s) do you like best?
9.)   What is your favorite genre of books (fiction, non-fiction, fantasy/sci-fi, biography, etc.)?
10.)          Which of Jane Austen’s heroines are you most like?
11.)          If you could learn any new skill, what would you choose?

Have fun!

Until next time, Gentle Readers,
God bless,

I’ll have an announcement to make next time I’m on the Blogosphere. Want a hint? OK, two words: “Chop-chop!”
