Category: Award, Mrs. Sparkly's Ten Commandments Award


Oh Wow!  How cool!  How exciting to receive this bright and shining  Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award from winloseordraw who believed I am a worthy recipient!  Thank you, I am so honored and grateful you’ve thought of me for this award.

Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award

To quote winloseordraw  ” I am certain that Mrs. Sparkly,  a woman of high expectations, commitment and integrity would agree with this approach.  She is notable, respected in her own community, and likely to be peering down upon us,  possibly spell checking and taking notes that feed into a mammoth government information data collection system ( MGIDCS ).  She may have been recruited because of her discretion and integrity behind closed doors.”

Here are the Rules of Engagement:

“Ten Questions must be answered with complete honesty or Mrs. Sparkly will find you.  Mrs. Sparkly we love you.  We do.  Manners and Behavior, words beyond reproach…then tag five other people.”

The Ten Commandments:

1.  Describe yourself in seven words.

Loving God,  people,  nature and my dogs.

2.  What keeps you up at night?

Planning the next day’s menu for my family ‘coz my son is allergic to sea-foods which all the rest are crazy about;  reading  good books, the Bible, Our Daily Bread,  and National Geographic Magazines;  scribbling poems;  setting up my posters;  chatting and blogging with friends;  playing a game of Scrabble;  walking under the moonlight;  stargazing…so many things going on for a night owl like me.

3.  Whom would you like to be?

Me.  I am perfectly comfortable with myself,  there’s no better substitute.

4.  What are you wearing now?

A light cottony printed Plains and Plaids shirt, and a comfy pair of shorts ‘coz it’s summer in my country.

5.  What scares you?  Cockroaches terrify me!

6.  What are the best and worst thing about e-logging?

Best:  I get updates on world events,  I get to connect and chat with friends from around the globe.

Worst:  When you can’t stop blogging and life gets in the way.

7.  What was the last website you looked at?

winloseordraw.wordpress.com  to check format of this award so as not to disappoint Mrs. Sparkly.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself,  what would it be?

Me?  Change myself?  No, thanks, I’m fine!!  Improve perhaps on some areas, like physical therapy and workouts for my spinal spondylitis which is annoyingly painful  I’ve  given up  mountain climbing.  Gardening is a fine substitute and a worthwhile therapy,  it keeps off  my mind from feeling the pain, plus I get lots of morning sunshine  too  🙂

9.  Slankets?  Yes or No?

I googled  “slankets”  to know what this thing is about.  If it’s a blanket made of fleece with sleeves to keep you warm on winter, then it’s a No.  It’s not practical to use in a tropical country where I’m enjoying the bright summer sun right now.

10. Tell us something about the person who tagged you.

winloseordraw who tagged me is a winner—draws, paints and sketches amazing and outstanding pieces of visual arts and illustrations,  complemented with beautiful short prose and poems.  Check out h(is)er blog site or you’d lose the opportunity to view h(is)er artistic works for free.  My prophetic vision tells me this artist has the potential to be as famous as Pablo Picasso.  Then you’ll have to spend a lot to someday view her priceless art works in a private gallery.  Now, don’t tell me I didn’t give you a tip.

I had a hard time hand picking my choice.  There should be more because all of my blogging friends are good.  However,  Mrs. Sparkly indicated I should pick only five. So here they are:

Five Alphabetically Hand-picked recommended posters:






If you read this, then please do check out the one who tagged me and also these five recommended sites.  If not, I’m sure Mrs. S will take you to task.  You have been warned!
