So Slow But A Creative Chaos Writing Award

Well if this is not just one of the coolest things to happen.

 An Award!

Not just any award. Like there is just any award. This is one from someone, a blogger who is new to my blogging world. She’s extremely creative, and a woman of deep faith. I know you will find her blog as fascinating as it is eclectic,  full of her random thoughts and so much more. I should not even pretend to know that I know all that she writes about because she’s wonderfully prolific and has been blogging since sometime in 2010.

I think you’d find it well worth a visit. Who knows, you may never want to come back.


Thank you my new friend for thinking of me and finding my blog worthy of your award. You are very lind and have managed to make my week.

The “Compliance” to this award is:

First: Thank the person who gave you the Award.  THANK YOU!!!!! And Thank you just a nit more for good measure.

Now for the interesting and challenging parts~

Second: Take your best shot at the 3 tasks listed below.

First Task: Three weird things I  do:

1. Really? I have to do this? Okay.. here goes…. I speak to anyone ,and all, who will give me the time of day. I find it my calling to make sure that when I am out and about to speak to each person I come across, saying something sincere and kind. No matter what or who, I am especially fond of those lady’s and gentlemen who have some wisdom riding over me. I want what they know!

2. I read 4 to 5 books at one time, all different genres that mean something to my life. I must have a romance filled with depth (Harlequin won’t do), a spiritual devotional read, a self help genre, some kind of craft or skill book such as cookbooks, mixed media etc…and a biography. This in addition to magazines, a book on kindle, the back of cereal boxes,,,, anything that I am able to read from keeps me content.

3. I collect paper. Pretty patterned or textured paper.  Like this

Second Task: You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?” 

This is easy. Half full instead of No Coffee? Well as long as we are speaking analogies here and not real coffee. Or there by lack of, coffee. Never good.

I am a glass half full kinda gal without much effort because it’s what makes my clock tick. Finding things to be glad about under other circumstances where those glad things are more hard pressed to find is a wonderful challenge, keeps my life interesting. Never a dull moment. Plaiyng the Glad game when things in life are trying you is a way to challenge yourself to live life fuller. if you find that your days are ending with you feeling quite malcontent I’d suggest looking at the things in your daily life that seem impossible. I am willing to promise you that if you are able to find just one tiny thing to be glad about in reference to the current struggle it will completely turn your day around. You will go from unhappy camper to a happy one. And all within your own power alone. you and Pollyanna that is!

Third Task: You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cellphone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your under pants and why? 

OH My Gosh! I forgot to put clean ones on this morning, I was not even sure who I was when I woke up and had to rush out the door. I was thinking gas station not panties because i knew the tank was sitting empty. The ones I was wearing when  the car ran out of gas I used to try to flag down a passing motorist because they were white. Instead I dumped them in a mud puddle and now they are soggy wet and full of sand. So, No thank you! 

I’m thinking as long as I don’t get in a car wreck now I’ll be fine. I can hear my mom’s voice echoing in my ears: “Tj, put clean panties on, you never know when you could get caught without clean panties.” 

Yes Mom! 

This was fiction right?

Third: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog.

And the nominees are:






Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
