Christine Has Been Nominated for a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

SISTERHOOD BLOG OF THE WORLD AWARD

Thank you, Saakshi Kale, randommusings, for nominating me for a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  This award recognizes the unique voices of women bloggers around the world. I’m honored to be in this category, and appreciate your nomination.  I’ve been following your writing for some time now and love your honest, mature writing style. Your blog is alive with spirit! It seems the welcoming sunsets on my blog site have attracted you, a much younger blogger.  Some answers to the questions might draw a big who’s that, or what’s that question in your mind. But, even though we’re years apart in age and experience, we’re in the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers together, and I like that!

Visit randommusings and enjoy her writing, especially the Himalayan Chronicles at:

The Rules

  1. Link to the person who nominated you.
  2. Add the reward logo.
  3. Answer the questions your nominator has asked.
  4. Nominate 7 other bloggers and let them know via comments.
  5. Ask your nominees 10 questions.

Saakshi Kale’s Questions for Me and My Answers

  1. Why did you start blogging? I wanted to write two books, Before Sundown and Happily Ever After. The blog site, Before Sundown would be a place to post chapters of the books and to get valuable feedback from blog followers. It did expand to include other categories, Featured Friends, photo galleries and other fun things. I love show casing other peoples’ accomplishments and photographs. Blogging keeps me writing every day, and connecting with other creative, interesting bloggers all over the world.
  2. Have you read any Buzzfeed list? If so, which is your favorite? Oh, Oh, I haven’t a favorite, and had to look it up to see what it was. Now, I’ve got to find out all about it. Buzzfeed has the hottest, most social content on the web. We feature breaking buzz and the kinds of things you’d want to pass along to your friends. Promise, I’ll get to it!
  3. Do you idolize anyone? Well, I did when I was in high school, a long time ago. I idolized movie actor, Burt Lancaster. I mean really he was a hunk, and that romantic kissing scene on the beach! Oh, I’m dating myself!  Does anyone know who Burt Lancaster is?

  1. 4. What is the craziest dare you have ever gotten? Another a while back one! Skiing the Matterhorn in the Italian Alps, my older son dared me to follow him down the slope from the top. I think we were on the hardest Black Run. He was an expert skier, and fast. I was more the slow, enjoy the scenery skier. We got to the bottom, and when he turned around I was right behind him! He was shocked! I was out of breath, smiling, shaking, and I had to sit down!  Whoo hoo!
  2. How many years have you and your best friend been best friends? Over twenty years!
  3. What do you think about dancing? I loved dancing (in 4 inch heel), and I love to see dancers, especially my granddaughter Audrey who is a ballet dancer (currently at the Joffrey Ballet Trainee Program in NYC).
  4. What is the best concert you have ever been to? Three concerts! Oingo Boingo, ZZ Top, and Neil Diamond.
