Liebster Blog Award

  • I  received the Liebster Blog Award from from M J Joachim.  Thanks, MJ!  I've done this one on both this blog and my other blog, but I'll answer the questions.  If any of you would like this award, please feel free to take it.  The rules are, answer these 11 questions, and then tag 11 other bloggers with under 200 followers.  You can also come up with 11 other questions for them to answer, if you'd like.

  • Fried or scrambled? I am not talking about your brain after a very long day here! Scrambled.  And yes, that's just like my brain!
  • Silently passionate or passionately silent? You know there’s a difference. Use your creative writing skills to expand on it.  Silently passionate.  I don't always talk about my passions, but my actions reflect my attitudes toward things that are important to me. 
  • Given these 3 ingredients (flour, water, salt), what would you make? Bread is not an option here.  Playdough.  My kids still love playing with the stuff.
  • If X + Y = Z, why doesn’t Z – X =Y? This can't be mathematical.  It has to be philosophical, because if X +Y=Z, then Z-X =Y.  Unless I'm just stupid.  Which may be the case, because something definitely weird happened to my brain after I had kids!  Any thoughts on this one?  
  • Hot or cold? Think chocolate! Think chocolate! Okay, I can get my head around this one.  I like cold, dark chocolate! 
  • Darts or ping pong? Ping pong.  I'm afraid I'd hurt myself with darts! 
  • Mugs or cups & saucers? Mugs. Cups are too small!
  • Home-cooked, take out or restaurant dining? Home cooked.  At least I know what I'm eating, and the portions aren't too big.
  • Seashore or mountains? This is a tough one.  Maybe the seashore, because I love the sound of water.
  • Rocks or thorns? Rocks. I can decorate with them. Thorns are just a problem no matter which way you look at them.

Here's the badge.  If you want it, please feel free to take it.  Also, please be sure to visit M J. Joachim!

And now for a special plant feature:  Snowdrops. 

Snowdrops are lovely plants that bloom in early spring. They can be found growing naturally in Washington, Utah, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, the New England states, and North Carolina.

The snowdrop, or Galanthus (Greek gala means "milk" and anthos means "flower"), is a small plant that grows to only about six inches in height. The shape of the white snowdrop flower looks like a bell.

In gardening, snowdrops can be used to form impressive white carpets where they have been naturalized.

Just be sure not to let kids or animals eat the bulbs of the snowdrop plant. This little beauty can pack a serious punch that involves a lot of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea!

    Ping pong is (pretty) much safer than darts...agreed!

    Cups are way too small. I want the largest mug possible for my coffee.
