The Versatile Blogger Award and The Unique Blogger Award

Thank you to Lynn from Lynn Abbot Studios for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award – this is the fourth time I’ve been nominated! 🙂 I’m so honored! If you haven’t been to her blog, just click the link. 🙂

The rules for this award are:

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award, and include a link to their blog.
  2. Nominate blogs that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  3. Share 7 things about yourself that people might not know.

Okay, here we go:

  • Uno: I dislike most breakfast meats and usually chose to eat a non-breakfast item or cereal or oatmeal. I also don’t like sausage or pepperoni on a pizza.
  • Dos: I like computer games. A lot. Too much…
  • Tres: I still enjoy children’s books. (I’ve been slowly reading through the Hank Zipzer series.)
  • Quatro: This may or may not count, technically, but I met my first vulture baby last week.
  • Cinco: I like hot and spicy food. I’m having spaghetti with a jalapeno pepper as I type this.
  • Seis: In April, I will have been a blogger for two years! My how time flies!
  • Siete: You may have noticed that I counted in Spanish! That’s because I’m learning it with Memrise and Duolingo. I recently learned how to count to twenty (veinte). 😀 And I’m also learning ASL on Memrise because I’ve always liked it and why not?

Thank you to Carly at Message In Stanza for nominating me for this award! 🙂 And if you haven’t visited her blog before, I linked to her blog in the name. 😉


Answer all the questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
Share the link of the blogger who nominated you
Nominate 8 to 13 bloggers for the same award
Ask 3 questions

My 3 Questions to answer:

  1. What is your main form of reflection: prayer, meditation, or an artistic pursuit and why? Or do you see all these as intertwined?
    • Great question! I had to really think about this one. I’d say that all three are kind of intertwined for me. Stained Glass actually came out of my journal that I sometimes write prayers in, so I guess it is kind of a mix of the three (if you count writing poetry as an artistic pursuit). I haven’t really tried a lot of meditation; prayer, yes.
  2. (I am going to steal DYI’s question): Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    • Oh wow, in 5 years I’ll be in my 30’s. Suddenly I feel… old. Not like, really old, just… it’s hard for me to grasp. XD I hope that by then I have a driver’s license. And have a book published, whether by self-publishing or trying to get it published some other way.
  3. If you paint or had a desire to paint what kind of things would you paint and where would you paint if you could paint anywhere?
    • If I could paint, I’d paint scenes from my novels and be my own illustrator. One of the most recent things I’ve tried was with color pencils. I’d love to try painting someday.

    • 😀 Amen!

      Thank you! ❤

      Haha, yeah, that was an unexpected one. My cats had a fit – the vulture was bigger than they are. 😆 And that was my first time seeing one up close like that too, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But it was really cool to see it up close! 🙂


  1. Congrats! And great answers to both set of questions. No to breakfast foods? I love a good pancake. You have been blogging for two years now. Time does fly. 😀❤️

    I’ll be in my 30’s too, in 5 years. Crazy, huh? ❤️

    Thanks for the award nomination but I think I will bow out of this one. I got a lot to do right but thanks for thinking of me, Grace. 🙂⭐️

    • Thank you! ❤

      I do enjoy pancakes! Especially with either molasses or chocolate syrup poured on top… it's almost like dessert, not breakfast! (And now I'm craving pancakes at nearly 2AM… 😂)

      Yeah, it sure does!

      Oh, how cool – we're close to the same age. ❤ Yeah, it is; it feels like I was a teen yesterday!

      Aww, I understand! Just know that I think you are deserving of the nomination, even if you aren't accepting the award. 🙂 And thank you for thinking of me, Carly! ❤

  2. Oh, my… four times you’ve received this award? Wow! I guess that should tell you something! Your blog is amazing. Yes, it is! Congratulations again! And congrats on your Unique Blogger Award as well! I LOVE your answers to the questions. How fantastic that you met a baby vulture! And have you posted any of your pencil drawings? Did I just miss those? I’ll be you are good just as you seem to be at everything you do! Awesome award post. ❤ and hugs!

    • Yeah – it’s such an honor! 😊 I can’t believe it, haha! 😀

      Aww, thank you! ❤

      And thanks! 😀

      No, I haven't yet. I actually meant to upload a photo of one before I posted and I forgot. Perhaps I shall soon! They are really more like… tracings. 😅 I draw the outline from an existing photo and then take it from there.

      Awww. **blush** 😊

      ❤ and hugs! 🙂


  3. Congrats, Grace! I enjoyed reading your answers. I love hot and spicy food as well. I also don’t like eating meats for breakfast. I go with cereal or sometimes a coffee with fried bake and cheese or just pancakes.

  4. Thank you so much for nominating me! I cannot wait to participate (I plan on posting mine on Friday, April 20th)! 🙂

    Your stained glass poem reminded me of a song by John Guerra called “Stained Glass”. Here’s the link, if your interested:

    I must say, hearing that you don’t yet have your driver’s license is such a relief! Haha, I know I shouldn’t compare but so many friends my age are getting their license now and I feel so pressured to get mine too. However, at this stage of life I just can’t fit it in/don’t feel comfortable driving. Especially since my mind is on college and all. I know eventually I’ll learn, but it is so nice to know that I am not the only one not with her license! 😀

    Yes! Illustrating your own writing would be so amazing! When I was younger I would write children’s books and do my own photography or paintings to go with the stories. Then I’d give copies to my little sister and her best friend. It was honestly so cute to hear them loving stories that I wrote!

    Excellent post!

    Thanks again for the nomination!

    • Yay!! I can’t wait to read it! I hope to post the Sunshine Blogger Award that you nominated me for soon as well – I’m stuck on the first question… XD

      Oh how cool!! I’ve never heard this song before; I really like it! 🙂 Thanks for sharing with me! ❤ (Now also listening to his other songs – I don't think I've ever heard of him until now.)

      😀 **high five** And it is such a relief to know that I'm not alone too! Same here – I'm not comfortable driving either.

      Ooohhh, that is so neat! 😀 I bet it was a lot of fun to put together too.

      Thanks! And you're welcome, I was happy to nominate you! ❤

  6. How fun! Congrats! I am working on getting into the blogger circles and understanding how this all works. I’ve been putting up my stuff on a blog for years, but haven’t ever really reached out. I like the idea of giving awards. Nice!
