I am so happy and humbled today, as I have received another Liebster Blog Award from the fantastic and awesome Deanie Humphrys-Dunne over at Thoughts and Ideas from Deanie Humphrys-Dunne. Thank you so much!

Now I know that traditionally the award comes with rules and certain obligations. But I have decided only to answer the 11 Questions that were presented to me and to make this award available to any blogger who has not yet had the opportunity to receive a blog award and who has less than 200 followers. 

The Questions
1. What is your favorite outdoor summer activity? 
Summers get hot where I live, so I will have to say sitting outside with a cold drink in my hand.

2. What is your favorite thing to BBQ? 
As a vegetarian my options are limited, but I guess whatever soy products I have in the fridge or even veggies.

3. Do you enjoy camping? If yes, do you tent or do you have a camper? 
I have never been camping, except when I was a baby and that probably doesn't count. But my parents used a big tent when they went camping. 

4. Do you use a push lawn mower or a ride-on tractor?
Neither, the only thing that grows in my garden is weeds.

5. What is your favorite fresh summer vegetable?
It has to be corn. 

6. What is your favorite cold drink? 
Coca Cola

7. What level spf sunscreen do you use most often? 
SPF 30

8. What water sports (if any) do you enjoy?
None. I can't swim, so I avoid large quantities of water. But I will watch other people having fun.

9. What is your favorite ice cream treat?
Ice cream Sundaes with lots of whipped cream.

10. Finish this line: Sunshine, happiness...and love.

11. What is your favorite thing about summer?
Everyone just seems so much happier during summer and the sky is just so clear. 


  1. Oh, I love camping and mowing the lawn! Congrats on the award. It was fun to read your responses! You've definitely earned it!

  2. Katie - Thank you! I guess if I had a lawn I wouldn't mind mowing it. I just ignore the weeds and wait for the weed killer to get them.

  3. Congrats on the award!
    I'm not a camping type of a person...
    I also love corn, whether it's tinned sweetcorn or boiled mealies with salt, pepper and butter... ooooh! Now I'm wishing for mealies...

  4. I love the sound of your summers - cold drinks and no lawn-mowing... perfect! Congratulations on the award :-)

  5. Well, I'd like to agree with your last one but we've had back to back thunderstorms almost non-stop for the past two weeks so our skies are anything but clear.

    Nice answers.

  6. Michelle - Thank you! I can eat corn any kind of way too. You are making me hungry for the boiled corn with butter Yummm! I love my mealies!

    Annalisa - Thank you. I didn't know that there were so many people actually mowing lawns. I feel like I should kill my weeds and get me a small patch of lawn.

    LD Masterson - Thank you! I wouldn't mind some rain, but I am terrified of thunderstorms. I hide along with the dogs when we get one.

  7. Corn, Coca Cola, and SPF 50, you just summed up summer. Now scoop up a sundae and enjoy a well deserved award. Congrats.

  8. Kelley - Thank you. I need a sundae now.
