What a honor

One Lovely Blog

One of my favorite bloggers, and fabulous poet Tosha Michelle from LaLiterati.com payed me the greatest compliment and nominated me for this award. Thank you!  Thank you!

Here are the rules:

The rules for accepting the 2015 One Lovely Blog Award:

– Thank and link back to the person who nominated you. Check!
– Share 7 things about yourself. Check!
– Nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on their blogs to let them know. almost check!

Hmmm, 7 things about me, this could be daunting.

  1.  I’m a dog lover.  I have two pooches, Rascal a 7 year old Mini Aussie Shepherd who lives up to his name and still thinks he’s a puppy.  Dolly a 4 year old Blue Heeler who thinks she’s an old woman.  She groans every time she moves, and gets very cranky with Rascal for acting like a puppy so much.  They are hilarious.
  2. I still blush.  I’m 51 years old, and I will blush if something racy comes up.  My friends are always shocked if I say something racy, because it’s rare when I do, and I blush like crazy!  I’m blushing now, admitting that I occasionally say something racy and blush doing it.
  3. I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years with the initial intention of finding something to be grateful for everyday.  Gratitude is the secret ingredient for satisfaction in life, and sadly, so many miss the boat on gratitude.  It makes me double my efforts to express my gratitude as often as possible.
  4. Language, is my passion.  Words, poetry, philosophy, expression……Language, sung, written or verbal is the human super-power.  It moves mountains, changes moods, changes nations, changes nature.  I love words fabulously and authentically expressed.
  5. I’ve been married to my husband for 22 years.  I’m not sure how we’ve made it this long, but we seem to do well with each other.  We have two sons ages 27 and 21.  I don’t know how I got so OLD to have these grown children, inside I still feel like I’m 27, and the world is still out in front of me.
  6. Ramblings and Musings is my blog, and that’s what I do.  I ramble a bit, I muse a bit, and write about what’s on my heart and mind.  Blogging has introduced me to some fabulous friends from all across the world.  Their support is amazing, and I’m grateful every day for the wonderful people I get to read and interact with.
  7. My other passion is riding my motorcycle.  I started a bit late in life learning to ride.  My hands have lost some strength recently, which will require a little surgery to correct the neuropathy that is hindering my throttle hand, I look forward to getting back on the road.

  1. Congrats on the award. And thanks so much for nominating me, Wendy. I accept with delight! I shall attend to the requirements by and by. 51 years old! Great Scot! Oh to be 51 again! Enjoy your youth – it will pass quicker than you think!

    • Yea! I was just reaching out to alert you. Thanks for the kind words. I’m still young at heart, and will probably blush to my grave, in many, many years.😊

  2. Your nomination is there for you if you want. But I know it’s not something you are participating in. So please accept my compliment. Even if it’s silent.😊

  3. Great to hear of a fellow biker. I started late at age 45 and have been riding for 18 years. It was good for me as a teacher to try to learn something that did not come easily (as academics do)–big lesson in understanding the frustration some learners experience. I am fairly new to your blog, but I am enjoying your love of language.

    • That’s so awesome! What do you ride? What was your biggest challenge?
      I’m so glad to have found you and your blog. I’m enjoying your posts, and views on teaching very much.

    • I started out with a 450cc 1980 Suzuki. When it became too hard to keep running, I moved up to a 900 cc Triumph Thunderbird (like Jennifer rode in Two Fat Ladies, those wonderful British cooks). I also got a Kawasaki Super Sherpa, 250 cc, which I still have and love and rode to work on nice days. It was a 30 minute ride and was probably the best hour in my day! Along the way the Triumph became unreliable. It was a tough time because I like a standard riding position and my husband was tired of lowering bikes for me. My compromise was a new 400 cc freeway worthy scooter, a Suzuki Bergman. We are now living in Mexico and the bikes are in New Mexico. I spent a year riding 2 up with my husband and watching the “interesting” driving habits here. I have started riding again on a 125 Suzuki purchased in Mexico where most bikes are standard, lower displacement, and shorter. It is a great bike for around town and is light enough to be manageable on cobblestone and dirt when encountered. Not enough horsepower for the toll roads. What are you riding when your body lets you?

      • How fun! I’m just a novice, and go for short rides when it’s not too hot here. I have a little Harley Street Bob, and I love riding out in the sticks away from all the traffic.

  4. Heyyyyyy, congratulations Wendy. Great getting to know more about you. You are courageous. I couldn’t do the motor bike thing.
    Thanks for honoring me with the nomination.
    😊
