Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award


Thank you to Lil Miss Poutine for nominating me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Pop over and see her site of photography, food, cycling, movies, music, technology, TV, travel and  . . . . . bowling? A varied and fascinating blog!

1. Favorite color?

Blue – especially aquamarine, ultramarine and space cadet. I don’t really like space cadet but I’ll bet you didn’t know it was a color!

2. Favorite animal?

Alligator. I feel a special bond with them after spending time in Florida.

3. Favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Oh come on. We all know I need to say wine. Champagne when available, but any color is acceptable.

4. Facebook or Twitter?

Neither really. Oh my.

5.  Favorite pattern?

Here’s an interesting one. The Golden Ratio Spiral as found throughout nature.

6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents?

I know what I’m meant to say, so I’m skipping this one.

7. Favorite number?

The year of my birth.

Oh, did you want to know that is?

8. Favorite day of the week?

It doesn’t matter. Every day is the weekend.

9. Favorite flower?

Daffodils – the precursors of spring! Not too many of them in the desert right now. Except at Safeway.

10. Favorite passion?

You don’t really think I’m going to put that out there do you?

Use the above questions OR list 10 interesting (printable!) facts about yourself.

Here are 10 blog sites I’d like to nominate. Sistas!

Multifarious Meanderings

Hilarious tales of a Brit living in France with her French husband, three children and a smelly dog – named Smelly Dog. I think a cat and a goldfish figure in there somewhere but I’m not sure the goldfish is still alive.

Travel Tales of Life

A Canadian with a zest for travel and photography. Many of Sue’s destinations are seen from the open air aspect of a bicycle. I invited myself along to their next cycling trip to Italy, opted out of pedalling and offered to meet them at a wine bar at the end of the day. They graciously accepted.

Pooky Poetry

Pooky is a recently (mere weeks ago) qualified PhD who apparently needs no sleep as she writes a poem (humorous and heart-wrenching – not poetry as you know it) a day, has two pre-schoolers, trained for and just ran the London Marathon and is writing a book with a deadline of September.

My Life Lived Full

Another Canadian, Joanne believes in living outside her comfort zone, including climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Yes! You read that right! Her current A to Z writing challenge is an amazing example of the diversity of her life.

Paint Your Landscape

LuAnn and Terry have been full-time RVers for nearly three years now. Despite the challenges that being on the road throw at them LuAnn is always ready with a comment or some encouragement to others while they continue to “paint” their landscape with their narrative and lovely photographs.

Judy Lindo Photography

Judy is a wonderful photographer and is not averse to photo editing her photographs with fantastic results. She is a breast cancer campaigner. Read about it here: Boobie Pirates

Oh the Places They Go

Pam and John are “two retired educators touring the country in their motorhome.” I’d been following them for a while but really took to Pam when she stated “nobody in their right mind would be a fan of a Pittsburgh team.” It’s good to have opinions where sports is involved! They’ve been tootling around the southeast and posting photos and narratives since they saw Pittsburgh lose to the Orioles.

Lowes Travels

Mona Lisa and her husband Steve are travelling the States in their motorhome, Betsy, are having way too much fun and document it all with beautiful photographs. Though Mona Lisa is from the Philippines,  she seems to have a cousin in every U.S. state.

At Home On The Road

Another Canadian? Ruth and Mike sold up five years ago and bought a 5th wheel to begin a “carefree” lifestyle never having RVed before. They must be as mad as we are! Their long list of tags and great photographs indicate that they must have got the hang of it by now.

My Year Of Sweat

Nancy recently completed a year – 365 days – of exercising every day and documenting her journey. Through rain, snow and life’s commitments she met the challenge she set herself. I took up a small challenge with her recently and hurt my back. I can be a dummy sometimes, but she is an exercise warrior princess. From Canada.

If you are a no award blog or already have this award just think to yourself isn’t she sweet? Shame she can’t read. And let it go. I’m okay with that if you are.

Finish this joke:

A Filipina, two Brits, four Canadians and four Americans walked into a bar  . . . . . . . . .

    1. And I am most honoured to be your only cupcake! I know I cheated. Now I’ve got the think. Oh gosh. They’re all such boring things. I didn’t cheat. I lied. It wasn’t that I couldn’t put it in print. All the things I can think of are too dull for words. Let me think some more and get back to you.
      Derek the laptop is in the hospital again. I gave him a virus! And the clock is ticking on the library computer. I’ll sleep on it!


  1. they walked into a bar… they had no idea who was who… until the bartender served up a computer and alas… They recognized “exactly” who was who….
    ……in Bloggeritaville….. Oh Gosh…. I need sleep…. That was LAME!! 😛


  2. congrats! and the ultramarine you describe sound since.

  3. Well deserved award Carol and thanks for the shout out. Although I have not accepted awards on my blog I would be most honored to be a part of your Sisterhood. It’s got to be a crazy club if you’re in it! 😛


  4. Thank you Carol! You made my day. Life, but mostly work, has gotten in the way of me posting to the blog recently, but that will change very soon. 🙂 Just so you know, we (my better half and I) have had multiple conversations and came to the decision that in 38 months we will be joining you, and so many others on the rode!!! You were our catalyst! I can’t wait and then I will have endless photo’s to share with all!


    1. That’s amazing! I feel responsible but I’m sure you will make the most of it and have terrific photos to show for it! The countdown begins. I’ll be watching and waiting with you. WhooHoo! 😀


  5. Congrats to you Carol. You always have me chuckling on this side of the computer. I so appreciate the nomination as well. Imagine the fun we are going to have in Italy! You have lots of time to train up on those pedals. The wine bottle will be our carrot. 🙂


  6. Chuckling… now she has to start an award page. Very well deserved all of them and the recognition is certainly fun, but there comes a point where there aren’t enough hours in the day. It’s all good as long as you’re having fun!!! 🙄


  7. What a thrill! I’ve been nominated for the Sisterhood!! Woohoo!!
    I’m most flattered ❤

    After I grind my way through this A-Z Challenge, I will have to come up with an appropriate response 🙂

    As usual, I love your humour. You are always guaranteed to make me smile 🙂

    oh yeah – congratulations on your award too! MOST deserving!


    1. Thanks Joanne. Your A – Z challenge must really be taxing your brain and creativity but I guess that is what it is meant to do. I like to see what you will come up with each day. I enjoyed putting this post together but it is kind of fishing for compliments! But thank you anyway!! 😕
