I am honoured to be given this award, Sisterhood of the World Bloggers, from Ellie Marrandette www.newcreationsministries.wordpress.com ,one of my sweet blogging friends here. Ellie is a wonderful, kind-spirited person and author of several books. Ellie is very involved with her ministry and writes so eloquently about living healthy with the foods we eat, with a little twist — her writing always includes kindness and links her passages back to the bible.
A Bit About Ellie:
“When my husband felt called to become a pastor recently, we left sunny Arizona and the golfing profession, for the cold climate but warm and friendly residents of northeastern Ohio.
As an author, I’ve published one coming-of-age novel, Sometimes Marriage is a Real Crime, now available for the a very affordable price on Amazon.com! I also wrote a short novella, The Curious Proposal for Prosperity, Nevada, found on www.Smashwords.com for free. Currently I am working on a sequel to Sometimes . . . and my most recent non-fiction Christian book on our mental, physical and spiritual connection to food “Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese . . .” (nutritional and life lessons God teaches us) which can be found world-wide through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and some major Christian distribution sites. . . .

The receiver of the award is to link to the blogger who nominated them, post the award and nominate 10 others. We are then to answer 10 questions given by the person who nominated us. Here are Ellie’s questions for me below:
- Would you rather win an Oscar, Pulitzer, Nobel or other award? Why?
- What would be your dream job?
- What characteristics describe your ideal husband?
- What’s your favorite place to vacation?
- What’s your greatest skill?
- What was your first car?
- What were you like in high school?
- Have you met a celebrity? Who?
- Have you been on television?
- What historical person would you invite to dinner?
- Of course being a published author, it would be a dream to win a Pulitzer.
- I’m already doing my dream job – writing.
- I am blessed to have married the ideal husband. He’s kind, supportive, understanding, doesn’t complain when my other marriage partner, writing, interferes with plans or with forgetting to make him dinner sometimes. He adores me, tells me how much he loves me several times a day and doesn’t like going anywhere without me. I’d say I was lucky to find the ideal husband.
- My favourite place in the world is Arizona. In fact, Ellie used to live there just before we met here online. Coincidence? Maybe.
- Hmm, my greatest skill? I’ll just say I’m a Jill of many trades and maybe mastered a few.
- My first car was a white Ford Mustang. I moved away from home at eighteen and when I needed a car my father always let me borrow his and came to pick me up so I could use it. One day I was twenty-one, sitting at my desk in my part-time job managing a Recreation Center and my dad came to visit me, along with one of my brother’s friends. He wore a big smile as he placed some car keys in front of me and reminded me that he never forgot he’d buy me a car when I turned twenty-one. I was over the moon, and of course he brought someone with him so he could get a ride back home.
- In high school, I was a loner. I was a bookworm, not particularly attractive and somewhat overweight. I went to school for education. My friends were outside of school, but I had plenty of them.
- I’ve bumped into a few celebrities in my travels, mostly. One time I literally bumped into Robert Wagner walking through the hotel casino at the Mirage in Las Vegas. I think he may have been feeling a bit celebratory as he walked by with his wife Jill St. John.
- Yes, I’ve been on television. When I was in my early thirties, I took some acting classes and played an extra on a few crime shows that were popular at the time. Seriously, I can’t remember the name of the shows. Which reminds me, yes, I played a court scene with Armand Assante, and Christopher Plummer was also in one of the other shows I played a patron in a restaurant scene with.
- Now that’s a toughie. I’m going to say Ernest Hemingway because I’d like to ask the Great Pappa how we can become great writers if we “Write drunk, and edit sober.”
I am more than grateful for being recognized and bestowed this award along with so many others I’ve been granted, and in the spirit of what I’ve started doing in this past year with awards, I offer all my wonderful blogging friends to copy this award and post it on your own pages from me because we are all deserving, and definitely all part of the sisterhood of blogging here.
