Awards—Part 2

Today’s post is a follow-up to last week’s post, Awards—Part 1, where my readers can begin to get to know me a little better. It also explains why it has taken me so long to respond to award nominations!

Thank you, Debra at Cultivating Time for nominating Poppies and Popcorn for the Versatile Blogger Award as well as the Liebster Award. If you haven’t visited her blog (, please take a moment to take a peek. You won’t regret it. ♥

Thank you, Spence’s Girl at, for nominating Poppies and Popcorn for the Liebster Award. Please stop in to say hello to her! She’s enjoying life and anyone who loves cats is A-1 in my book! ♥

Thank you, Suzy Barker at Just Midlife for nominating Poppies and Popcorn for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Suzy’s blog, I recently discovered Just Midlife blog is no longer available, but you can find Suzy at Her blog chock full of lovely photographs and fabulous writings. ♥

Thank you, Sabine, at In Cahoots With Muddy Boots for nominating Poppies and Popcorn for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Sabine’s blog is so colorful with all her wonderful photos. Don’t hesitate to take a look at! ♥

There may have been others who nominated Poppies and Popcorn for awards, but I’m unable to confirm those. If I’ve missed you, please let me know.

Now, let’s get on with the second part of the questions these lovely ladies gave me.

What is your favorite time of day to write for your blog?
     When I’m awake.

Do you have any pets and what kind?
     Sadly, our last fur baby passed away a couple of weeks ago.  L

What is your favorite flower?

Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?
     There is no comparison—apples and oranges—both are fabulous. Mother Nature is a master decorator!

You can spend the day with any man or woman from history, who will you choose and why?
     Douglas Adams, author of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
     (I may be interpreting the word ‘history’ differently than intended here.)

What one question will you definitely ask them?
     Did you get confused easily?

You are stranded in a lifeboat in the ocean, like in Life of Pi – which animal will you share your boat with and why?
     Haven’t seen Life of Pi, so I’m not sure how to answer this one. It seems unlikely I’d be stranded in a lifeboat in the ocean with an animal, but since the question didn’t specifically state a real animal, I’ll choose a unicorn because they are magical.

What quote or saying about time do you like?
     “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint—it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff.” ~Doctor Who

If you could visit a fictional world from a book or a film, where would you go?
     Wonderland from Alice in Wonderland—I want to meet that white rabbit.
Second choice would be Pooh Corner.

You have to change your hair color and it has to be one of the colors of the rainbow. What color will you choose?
Orange wouldn’t suit my skin tone. Indigo—boring. Yellow—sort of already there. Red—been there. Blue might look nice with the grays, but no. Green—really?

Dream vacation! Where would you go?
     The Netherlands when the tulips are in bloom, to visit my friend, Pegg, and to finally meet online friends, Daniella and Maaike in person.

Which book are you reading at the moment?
     The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty.

Who is your favorite author?
     A.A. Milne, Edgar Allan Poe, Douglas Adams
Edward Rutherford is close to the top of the list as well.

What type of music do you like?
     All types (except RAP). There is appeal in every genre. However, I do gravitate toward heavy rock. The ‘70’s calls to me!

If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up?

If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
     Social interaction. I really suck at it. I’d love to have the confidence to talk to anyone, anywhere and be fully engaged in any conversation.

If you could have one superpower what would it be and how would you use it?
     Mind reading. Seems obvious to me.

Thanks for stopping in. I know I’m not following the rules for each of the awards, but I really do appreciate the sentiments.
