liebster award a kind of daisy chain made from hearts with words

 

May 20 is birth Day for me and dad

this year we were divided by the ditch but we spoke a couple of times on the phone and that had to satisfy .

John and I went into Bega picked up Elsie Rose and she took me to lunch.

yum great food lovely day lovely family

phonecalls and over the line hugs.

the little king got upset because he wasn’t with me so I said I will have a birthday next week when he is here.

that cheered him up a little.

I  came home  to find the faerie embassy had been nominated for a leibster award.

no didn’t have a clue what was going on.

found out it is a kind of daisy chain made from hearts with words.

and that liebster means sweetheart beloved .

so thanking you Rosie 49 for nominating  me and you can find her bloggerpiece  below

The Official Rules Of The Liebster Award

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.

2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)

3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.

4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.

5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)

6. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.

7. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:

8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

 

In reply:

1.What are the first 3 things you do every morning?

light Stanley the  wood stove, a bit of yoga and  a pot of tea (yes with cosy ) and  a piece of toast.

2.Is your blog your primary creative outlet?  If not, please tell us about your pet project.

my life – which includes writing / blogging on behalf of the faerie embassy which is a space in time and place that is inclusive of all beings. My pet project is paying attention  to the rainbow the wind the ocean the creatures the elementals…. listening to life renewing it Self .

3.You’re having a cocktail party and need to invite one Arts legend, one Sports legend and one family legend.  Please tell us who you’re inviting and why.

the arts legend would be Penny Jones an eccentric painter in oils and watercolours who is a totally wild hag  and great friend to the indigenous community. Why? we rant well together .

the sports legend would be Slomo the roller blader of southern California . Why? to talk about his  interesting change of direction in his life.

the family legend would be my father Murray 87 years old ,he has  a lot of cheek intelligence and wisdom.

4.Where do you usually find your creative inspiration?

in the world around me arising out of conversations , stories , news  the view outside my window  forest village  sky stars and dreams.

5.If you could go anywhere is time for one week only, where would you go and why?  (You can go into the past or the future.)

perhaps  Damanhur in Italy to check  out the beauty of the temples – see how well it operates as an intentional community and their discoveries in the realm of time travel and  consciousness.

6.Would you rather be the Teacher or the Student?  Why?

always the student learning loving exploring wondering and some times I am the teacher practicing the learning.

7.Short story or long-form novel?  Which would (or do) you prefer to write?  Which do you prefer to read?

I prefer reading a novel though in non fiction I enjoy the shorter stories . and writing for me is about the little  stories with a big message.

8.Who is your favorite author and what is your favorite book?

today it is “Wild” by Jay Griffiths.

9.Three adjectives to describe yourself.

what only three – today they would be outraged ( they are burning the forests) blessed and eccentric.

My mother used to say to me you are going to be a lady when you grow up and I used to reply defiantly I am not I am not I don’t want to be a lady. and she would say well what are you going to be then?I I I didn’t know . all I knew was that I did not want to fit into a box and that the passion for freedom drove me every step of the way.

11.Which of your own blog posts are you most proud of (links please!)?

three men two rods and a packet of pilchards

if the goddess has returned I hope she brought a new fella with her

 

        here is the next thread in the chain to share 11 things about me and the faerie embassy

 

eleven is my number in that world of numerology.

I am a besotted grandmother.

the faerie embassy is a wild biodiversity where life is seething teaming bustling and breathing.

it is winter – I  crochet or knit   – currently project crocheted prayer flags.

I love riding on the back of the BMW with my liebster.

a pot of tea with tea leaves out of a cup and saucer on the verandah or around the kitchen table is part of my every day.

refugees are welcome here and the remnant survivors of a grey kangaroo mob is building up in numbers  .

laughing is necessary as is singing up the earth.

adventures are important.

staying home being quietly satisfied with life and practicing gratitude.

the faerie embassy hosts a loving family  warm friendships and has a consulate in the nations capital.

Plucking of my Heartstrings

 

well the whole widget thing was difficult – it is alright to say cut and paste to me but sometimes  I just dont get it.

finally I rang Jess , she giggled as she tried  to help me over the phone.

I had said to John I am going to master links today. at lunch I said I can’t do it.

he said dont you just go up to the top and push a button.

well yes beloved that is exactly what you do so tick for that one.

anyway eventually I managed to get the lovelly pink heart of the liebster up on side bar of the blog  but only by loosing the a to z badge .

thanks to this great little lap top.

and all helpers

    I don’t know how this post passed me by Sandra. I was about to respond to yours on mine (thank you and will still) and went to yours here to see what you’ve been up to as I haven’t seen a post from you in a while. I do know that you nominated me for a liebster, thank you again .. I love your questions and your answers to the same! Am awfully nervous about cut copying pasting etc and stuffing up …and widgets? I ain’t got a clue!
    Now to get back to mine and respond … hope all very well with you. If I could add a picture of a heart in this message I would .. so sending you a smile. 🙂

      thank you Susan, I must be entering the quiet of winter or is it that my fingers have been crochet busy . I do understand your nervousness – it is all good when we know what we are doing but technology is such a huge learning curve …. all the time.
