The Liebster Award

20180712_092248662032844

First, I’d like to thank Kelley’s DIY for the Liebster Award! I appreciate the nod!

What is the Liebster Award? The Liebster is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcoming.

The GUIDELINES for the Liebster Award are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Display the award on your post
3. Answer the questions given to you
4. Nominate 5-11 other blogs for this award
5. Ask them creative and unique questions of your own
6. List the rules and inform your nominees of the award

Questions given to me:

1) What is your favorite color? Purple

2) Cats or Dogs? Cats!

3) Which is your ideal place: Beach, Lake, Ocean, Forest and why? Lake! I used to be a cross-country backpacker. I spent many hours beside a lake and campfire. It’s a peaceful place to be and I will always miss it!

4) Favorite Scary Movie? A Norwegian slasher film called Cold Prey. There’s also a Scandinavian film trilogy called The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The American remake was OK but the original was much better. Not really scary, but a thriller anyway.

5) One Wish? To have my mobility back so I can do the things I’d like to do.

6) Dream Vacation? Scotland! I’d love to see all of the castles. I love castles!

7) Saver or spender? In between, I suppose.

8) Which season do you prefer? (Spring,Summer, Fall, Winter)? Winter.

9) Where’s your happy place? In the woods, in nature.

10) Why did you start your blog? I started my blog because I was going through some “stuff” and I needed a way to vent. It became one of the things that saved my sanity.

  1. Truly Madly Ordinary. Stories From The Heart.

Nominate 10 – 20 people & notify.

Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).

Three things about me:

I am very empathic.

I despise fake people.

I am a good friend.

 

My Answers to Questions Given to Me:

Tell something about yourself and your word press identity?

My identity “Aunt Debbie” is pretty much ME. I have several nieces and nephews and I’ve been called Aunt Debbie for so long that it seemed the appropriate title for my blog, “Being Aunt Debbie.”

Views about trying different foods

I pretty much stick to what I know. If there’s a new dish from another land I haven’t tried, I might try it. It just depends. I love spicy foods, pasta, pizza, chocolate, veggies.

What kind of buyer are you? (cheap or expensive)

I am neither cheap or expensive really. I put a lot of thought into my gifts. Normally I create something myself; maybe jewelry or something crocheted, maybe some other handcrafted item. Sometimes that might cost a lot, sometimes it might be very inexpensive.

Do you believe in the global warming?

Yes. There are many scientific studies on climate change and I think scientists know much more than I.

Do you consider yourself young or old?

My mind is still young but my body feels old; very, very old.

 

My Questions for Nominees:

If money was no object and you could travel anywhere in the world for 2 weeks, where would you go?

What is the worst job you ever had?

What do you wish you knew more about?

If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone to cheer you up?

What is the weirdest thing you have seen in someone else’s home?
