My First Awards Nominations

I am still fairly new to WordPress and I certainly never thought I would be nominated for an award let alone two. Thank you to Anne R. Murray for nominating me for the Creative Blogger Award and the Liebster Blog Award. You can follow Anne on her blog at

5 Random Facts About Me

1. When I was younger I wanted to be a zoologist.

2. I live with my family in the house that my husband’s great grandparents built.

3. I love Scottish accents and have found myself eavesdropping on conversations when someone speaks with a Scottish accent. I could careless what they are talking about and just like the sound of their voice.

4. My favourite colour is red and I had a red and white room when I was younger. The door, trim and carpet were red and the walls were white. Truly a Canadian room.

5. I am a bookkeeper.

Anne’s Questions: 1. What 3 things would take with you on a deserted island? (only 3 things maximum). Magnifying glass, axe and a case of water (a big case, 48 bottles). 2. What is number 1 priority on your bucket list? To finally travel to the UK. 3. Are you fulfilled in life? Why? Yes, because I have a loving family and I am living a dream. 4. What time in life (modern or historical) would you want to live in? Why? Modern – I would make a terrible pioneer. It would be nice to visit for a day, but I couldn’t live without some of the modern amenities. 5. If you knew this was your last day on earth, what would you do? I would spend it with my husband and children doing things that we love. 6. What is your dream job? I would live to be able to write full time. 7. If you won the lottery today, what would you do with the money? Build a brand new home with new furnishings, new clothing, new cars, invest, put money aside for my children, nieces and nephews and give some money to siblings and parents. 8. What was your favorite subject in school? Art and science, specifically biology. 9. Who was your favorite childhood friend? Vally – we recently reconnected on Facebook a year or so ago and I would love to see her again some day. 10. Did you have a favorite pet growing up? My two cats Edward and Arthur – yes they were regal cats.

  1. Dear Sandra,

    I apologize for replying to your post about awards late. I did not see this post and your nomination for the two awards above until yesterday. I will be answering your questions and the award questions in the next few days.

    I think your answer to what to take to an isolated Island is perfect and wise.

    Again my apologies for replying late.
    Sam Sutlive.
