Sunflower Blogger Award

From Leah Bo-beah!
sunflower-award

You know how the drill goes.

I give 11 facts about myself.

1.  When I was around 6 years old, my siblings gave me the nickname Sunflower.

2.  Right now I’m wearing a polka dot dress.

3.  I hope to get a job at the library someday.

4.  I can still do a “front handspring” sort of.

5.  I always cut my own hair.

6.  I’m not sure what else to say

7.  So I’ll just find something random, k?

8.  My favorite sections at the library are: writing, animals, drawing, and comics.

9.  I share two little black flip-phones with my siblings.

10.  And in public I like to show them off

11.  Jordan from Blimey Cow uses a flip-phone too. ;D

Okay, those were pretty bad. But moving on. Leah gave me some questions….

1.  Where is your most favorite place to be in the whole wide world? I have a few of those. One is my church building, but what makes it special are all the people there. I can’t say it is without beauty when everyone is gone, because it’s one place I can play piano to a large room, and it sounds like holiness itself. Another favorite place is down in the country at my grandparents’ place. It’s just full of memories, and it feels like a second home. And then I really enjoy Silver Birch Ranch, where our family has attended homeschool retreats. The scenery, the smells, the people, I don’t know. It’s just magical somehow.

2.  Early riser or night owl? Usually a night owl, but it depends on the season and the day and my plans for the day. In the summer it is easier to rise early and spend the morning outside with the cat, but also during November I’m up early. 🙂

3.  If you were to talk about a subject for an hour straight what would you pick? Eh, it depends on the person I’m having the conversation with. But if I have to talk about it for an hour, it’d better be something good. Perhaps what God has been doing in our lives and the lives of the people around us. It would be that or books, stories, and writing. 🙂

4.  What has God been teaching you this week? Well, that’s what the blog posts on my blog are about, everything God has been showing me. So you can go read them.

5.  If you were to create the “perfect atmosphere”, what would it be? There are probably several. But let me see: people I love. Things I love. Scenery I love. And all around love. How’s that?

6.  Last book you read. Ummm, the last book I completed was Pentecost-Today?

7.  And what personality do you jive best with? I don’t really know! But a few characteristics that I really like and respond to are: humility and graciousness to take what people say seriously, humor, responsiveness, and eye contact. I couldn’t really choose a personality that I go with. I have yet to find a personality I can’t get along with. 🙂

 

I will tag Haley and Payton now, just because I think they deserve a Sunflower Award. But I have no questions to ask, so just give us 11 random facts, or answer Leah’s questions. 🙂

 

Tootles,
Ellie

Awarded The Lucky Number

I was awarded the Lucky 7 award by Mutantbee. A seven. Is that mockery? Well, I’ve changed all the 7’s to 4’s. So! Here’s the rules.

  1. Go to the 4th or 44th page of your Work in progress.
  2. Go to the 4th line of the page.
  3. Copy the next 4 sentences or paragraphs. Remember, they must be as they are typed.
  4. Tag 4 authors.
  5. Let them know they’re it!
And of course since I’m doing NaNoWriMo, I suppose I will go to my story I’m working on. I chose the 4th page, because the 44th is really cheesy and awful and so going to be taken out at the end of NaNoWriMo

Hanson looked almost angry, though not at his father, and said with firmness, “Papa, you surely have an explanation for everything.”
“Yes, I have an explanation for everything. I was giving poison by the doctor, who said that Frahm needed it-”
“Needed poison!” Mireille exclaimed.
“Mireille.” Adali put a reproachful hand on Mireille’s knee and Adofo continued.

Now, to tag 4 authors! However, I choose to select 4 NaNoWriMo people who do not have a blog to pass on this silly award game, unless you really want to in the comments.

  1. DUCKGIRL
  2. alexandyou
  3. Brooke Stormcatcher
  4. aaannndddd hmmmmmm weelllllll Ah! SisterSarah

That’s all people!

Awarded!

 The Versatile Blogger Award! Wow, I’m flattered. Someone thinks my blog is–well versatile. Laughingbelles gave me award when she’s never even met me. And my name was at the top of her list!

Rule #1–Thank the award giver and link back to them. Thank you Laughingbelles! She’s got a really sweet blog at thegiftofcreation.wordpress.com Stuff about writing, God, and lovely things, trust me. Thanks Belle, this award would go right back at you.

Rule #2–Share seven things about yourself. And I’m awful at this stuff, as if you wanted to know about me anywho.

1) I like coffee and fruit, preferably portable fruit like grapes and apples. I could survive on coffee and apples.

2) I constantly quote Kid History just because.

3) I am right handed and left faced. Because if you didn’t know, you can’t be right handed and right faced, or left handed and left faced. That means I use my left eye and can raise that eyebrow.

4) My favorite number is four, because four is just awesome like that. You know four is the only number with the same amount of characters in the name as in the meaning of the name? Every fourth year we miss a day, every fourth year we elect a new president, every fourth of July America turns a year older, as well as myself. 6 is only cool because it’s 4+half of 4. 16 is only cool because it’s 4×4. Four is easy to work with and fun. 4x4x4x4 is 256. 😉

5) I have different color sneakers. That’s because they came from a shoe outlet and I couldn’t resist 10 dollar nikes. So one is pink and gray with a white shoelace, and the other is red and black with a black shoelace.

6) My church, Rockport, is the best church, but they’re planting another best church along with some other best churches in St. Louis. It’s called the Gate and it launches this Sunday. ^_^ We’re praying and excited and you can learn more here.

7) I thought of something to put on here earlier and now I can’t remember what it was. You’re left to imagine! 😀

Rule #3–Pass the award on to fifteen others. Yay, I get to award all the blogs I follow.
