The Black Cat Blue Sea Award



Thank you very much Second Time Blogger for nominating me for this lovely award.  I, as were you, very surprised delighted and stunned at being nominated for the first award and am equally touched to receive this one as well.  We also have black cats in common it would seem for my cat, Porsche, is black and poofy and incredibly intelligent.  I love him dearly!  So I’m with you, the name of this award rocks!  And as mentioned, it is supposed to be fun!

My questions for the nominees :

  1. What do you wish to achieve out of your blog?
  2. Do you have a dream which you havent got around to fulfilling yet? If yes, then what is it?
  3. If you had to pick between reading a book/watching a movie while sipping on a good cup of coffee/any beverage and talking a walk on a beach, which would you choose and why?

1. In all honesty, I was terrified the first time, it was a “jump” and swim situation as I’d never heard about blogs or blogging and couldn’t fathom what I could possibly write about.  Now that I’m well and truly in the water, I’m swimming full steam ahead.  What I achieve through this blog, is meeting absolutely delightful people, a very warm community in fact, many of whom I hold very dear to my heart.  Through blogging, I get to experience what other individuals in the world think feel hope for and how they write and perceive life.  An exchange of thoughts and ideas on a global basis and therefore illuminating.

2. I’ve fulfilled so many of my dreams, and  yes I’ll probably have more.  They seem to pop up unexpectedly and there it is, another aspect or goal or dream I want to fulfill.  At the moment, having published my first novel, I am working on 3 others and the current dream is to finish these and publish them as well.

3.How about reading a book, on the beach with coffee while enjoying the “view” and chillaxing.  Seriously, a book trumps all else for entertainment;  I can easily lose myself in a good book and I adore the beach.  There is a freedom in both the book and the beach as well as exhilaration.

I sincerely thank you for nominating me as I read your prose constantly as the others I am about to nominate.

My questions to you are:

  1.  Do you consider humour as an important element in your life?
  2. What is the furthest destination you have been able to travel to?
  3. Did the expectations live up to the dream?







  1. I am so pleased for you, it is well deserved. I thank you very much for nominating me but I have decided to keep my blog award free. I would like to answer your question though if I may.

    Humour means everything to me I was brought up in a family that was always laughing.

    The furthest destinations I have visited are Vancouver which was beautiful ,but I was a little bit disappointed because I thought it would be more spiritual! oh and Dubai that was before it was over developed and that was great too. That did live up to my expectations.

    Thank you and congratulations again

    • Thank you so much. I appreciate your answering, because you are one of the few I thoroughly enjoy. Chatting with you is a highlight of my day and I always look forward to what your offer in what you write. I live on Vancouver Island and lived in Vancouver, many parts. I sincerely look forward to an ongoing “relationship” if you will, if that is welcome to you. You are such a delight.


      • That was so lovely, thank you. I enjoy chatting and reading your posts too. When I came to Vancouver, it was with my first husband and we hired a winnebago and travelled around. The best place we visited was Vancouver Island 😀

        John and I have said if we ever come into money we would visit Canada again!

        I am so pleased your not offended by my refusal of the award but something stops me. 😬

        I have made a blog with your link on so hopefully you will get some more followers. Meanwhile I look forward to getting to know you better

        Elaine 🙂

  2. I love the answers you gave. I totally agree with you,about being able to meet so many people through blogging and getting a look into their worlds and sharing thoughts.
    All the very best with your books. Hope you get to publish them soon so that we’ll get to read them. 🙂

    By the way the cat’s photo I use is the one in my aunt’s house. I currently don’t have pets. But I simply adore cats and she always poses for photos so decided to use her photo. 🙂
