Dear Dolly has nominated me for another award!!     Thanks, Dolly!!      I love that woman- cat?    Wom-cat?    Wo-at??   Ca-man??        I ❤ Dolly!!

Here’s her post, where she nominates me, and schools us on DaVinci.  

 What a cool guy!! I would LOVE to be able to write with one hand, and draw with the other!  (I would love to be able to draw, period!!)

And her soup is wonderful, I know!        No, I haven’t made it yet, but she is a superb cook, so I just know.

This is a brand spanking new award, created by: Esmé of The Recipe Hunter (Cook & Enjoy).          {I had NO idea you could make up your own awards!!         Now, my mind is off and running in that direction!!      Yee haw!!}

“The Blog-aholic Award” is an award for bloggers addicted to blogging with creative, ingenious and inspiring posts. They mesmerize their followers with their posts, keep them captivated and riveted to their blog. The Blog-aholic Award is also for bloggers who “Share and Inspire Others!” The Recipe Hunter (Cook & Enjoy)

7. Share 3 interesting and different facts about yourself.                                                                   It feels like y’all already know everything about me!    

  • I used to bite my toenails, when I was much, much younger, and a TON more bendy!!
  • I’ve been caffeine free since 2006, when I was in the hospital, for a week with pneumonia.     They would only let me have Sprite or ginger ale.      At the time, I was heavily addicted to Coke.        (The DRINK!!!)          So, after the horrible headaches subsided, I decided might as well stay caffeine free.      And I have.
  • I threw myself a huge, hilarious 50th birthday party!      No one else would, so somebody had to do it!         (Maybe I need to blog about that??)

Thank the nominator and mention the creator.

Thanks, Dolly!!       I think I’ve mentioned Esme sufficiently.       (4 back links seem adequate to me!)

Today’s quote:

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV



Contrary to popular belief, we can NOT work our way into heaven!     This verse clearly states salvation comes by grace, through faith, and it’s a GIFT from God!!           I am so grateful to God for His free gift!!         How about you?

I hope you come on board, and quote away, ladies!

  • Give a brief story of how you started your blog.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

Well, of course I accept!!   Y’all who know me, know I’m an attention hog fer sure!!

So, here comes #1!!

And this is it!!   Thank you, Brenda, for the nomination!   I’m so glad I found you, and made a new friend!   What a blessing!

Oh wait!  Was that #1, or #2??   Do I have start all over again, cuz I mixed it up??  

gets all in a tizzy, runs around like a chicken with its head chopped off, and faints from the exertion

Well, I was sick (and tired) of having a nasty house, hence the slob part of the name.   And, I love adore  am passionate about the color purple, hence that part of my name.  I was plain sick, too.   Hence the recovery part of the name.   {Are you tired of seeing “hence” yet??}

So, I hunted around Googled “slob”.   ASlobComesClean came up.   Once I read her first post, I was hooked!   I had found my people!   AND, she was a real slob, just like me!   SO, I thought to myself, “Self, if Nony can do it, so can you!”

And here I am, 2 years later, an expert slogger!   {slob blogger, I’m also lazy, so anytime I can make 1 word do, I will!}    (Expert- Bwahaha!   I think I’m so funny!)

slob, humor, appreciation

No, thank YOU!!


I certainly hope that was brief enough to qualify for #3!

#4. Hmmm, give advice…  That sounds so bossy!   And I’m just the woman for the job!!   I’ve been told I’m bossy, ever since Bro. could talk!  So, about 5 decades now!   (But, just cuz it’s repeated {constantly}, doesn’t mean it’s true.   Right?   RIGHT???

      First piece of advice, make sure you really want to do this!!   It sucks all your time!!   But, it’s so rewarding and fun, you don’t care!!   My BBFF (Best Blogging Friend Forever) Janice, assures everyone that we can blog, and still find the time to sleep!!



      Second, and this is IMPERATIVE!!!    Learn how to properly use hyperlinks!!   And use those puppies every opportunity you get!!   {Kinda like I did in this post!!}

Okay, last but not least, name 15 other bloggers to grace with my presence, oops, I mean this award!
