Liebster Award

I was nominated by Kathy at My Home And Heart . I was going to pass because it all looked way to complicated and time consuming.  But then I started to feel guilty for breaking the chain . . . so, here is mine. 

Official rules:

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 by using a "widget" or "gadget"

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 less than 1000 followers.

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.

Kathy's 11 questions:

1. Do you like to dance? Yes especially when I'm alone and can twirl around in front of the TV with the music blasting.

  1. Hi Marge! Oh I am so glad you did it! I loved learning more about you! You really are blessed with your children and grandchildren and a great grand child! I enjoy an afternoon coffee too! I usually make a pot around 2 or 3, depending on our mood, and we have it out on the deck if the weather is nice! Hugs my friend!

  2. Hi Marge!

    That was fun! You are a very interesting person - we would get along just grand!! You deserve an award!


  3. I enjoyed learning more about you. I almost passed on the award too but ended up doing it - just not nominating anyone else for it. Lake Bonnet is a lovely place! Enjoy your coffee with Joyce.
