Nominated for One Lovely Blog Award


Yesterday, to my surprise, I was nominated for One Lovely Blog Award by

The rules for the nominees are:
1.  Thank the person who nominated you for the award.  

      Thank you very much  Floridaborne for the nomination.  🙂

2.  Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post. 

It is the photo added above.

3.  Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.  

I don’t usually share this because there are a lot of strong opinions, especially of late, about my line of work.  I work in law enforcement and am a police dispatcher.  This blog gives me an outlet to see and share the awesome things that exist in the big bad world.

I have an extreme love of coffee, but am not able to drink it because I have an adverse reaction to caffeine.  I still fantasize about fully leaded coffee.

I am a nerd.  I enjoy reading and watching science fiction/fantasy.  I am impatiently waiting for George R. R. Martin to finish writing Game of Thrones!

I am a homebody and enjoy spending time with my husband, Glen, and our critters, (2 dogs, 1 cat and 2 parrots….however, sometimes the parrots drive me insane).

I enjoy drinking wine.  When asked if I prefer red or white….the answer is yes.

I am a doomsday prepper wannabe.  We got somewhat started this summer with our garden and canning.

I am scared of bugs.  Always have been.  Of course there are a few exceptions such as lady bugs, roly poly’s and lightening bugs.

4.  Nominate somewhere around 15 bloggers that you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.

The blogs I’m nominating are:

Hopefully, those nominated will see this as fun, and a good way to share blogs we enjoy reading with everyone.  Please know this isn’t a mandatory project to stress out over.

  1. We used to call police Peace Officers. Somehow, law enforcements just sounds so…forceful. You have to have steady nerves to be a dispatcher. It’s understandable why you’d value your privacy and a quiet life.

    Some of the pictures you take are very soothing to look at after a stressful day. It’s one of the reasons I like your blog. 🙂


  2. Thanks for the nice comment. My job can be stressful that is why I like doing this blog. I am always in search of good nature shots as well as annoying my pets by taking their picture. It keeps me balanced 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
