Sunday Sweets

Sweet … moi? I’m more of a salty person … But Faith nominated me for "Super Sweet Blogger Award" and I accepted. Because I can be sweet sometimes …


The rules copied from Faith: answer the following five sweet questions and nominate five sweet bloggers. Easy-peasy.


1. Cookies or Cake? Cookies! Ideally, ginger snaps. I cannot resist a little sweet something, probably to counteract all the salt and spice.


2. Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate. A luscious Belgian chocolate (I got spoiled living two years in Belgium). But I’ll settle for a Cadbury.  


3. Favorite Sweet Treat? Fresh mangoes. It's as if I've died and gone to heaven.


4. When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most? In the afternoons, when I need a little pick-me-up.

5. Sweet Nick Name? My brother nicknamed me Winkie and it has remained. I tried to teach my husband a few Indian terms of endearment, but not one stuck. But he need only look at me ... and I melt.
Five bloggers who've added sweet goodness to my life (and who've not yet rec'd this award).

Marcia Hoehne, a dear, dear friend with whom I discuss life, faith, and writing.
Mgsr. Charles Pope, a holy priest who has taught me much about my faith.
Kristi Holl, whose Writer's First Aid is a great gift to all of us who are writer-mamas.
Verla Kay, who created the Blueboards, the best community for children's writers to support one another in their journey and where you can find me moderating/procrastinating.
Shannon Grogan, a writer from WA who sent me a copy of a book featuring my poem, and who is coming out with a new YA suspense FROM WHERE I WATCH YOU.
Becky Shillington, is a writer whom I'll get to see this coming weekend at the Carolinas SCBWI conference.

Is that six? Shucks, I can't count ... as it was quite apparent at choir practice last Wed.

Vijaya, thank you so much! That is so kind of you to mention my blog. I'm glad you find it helpful...and I sure enjoyed getting to meet you in person finally this summer. Hugs to you!

A huge ditto for your fourth point. I wish we had English four o'clock tea time as a culture, so I wouldn't feel alone...

Marcia said...

Your last line made me laugh. And I do appreciate certain memes for the personal glimpse they give. Thanks, sweetie! :D

Becky Shillington said...

Thank you so much, Vijaya! You are so "sweet!" = ) Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

I almost cheated to add six and include Marcia, too! :)
Mmm...now I'm craving a mango. I'd love to eat one right off a tree someday!

Vijaya said...

Kristi, all my thanks to you for everything. And it was such a great pleasure for me to finally meet you.

Mirka, perhaps you need to start afternoon tea with a good neighbor :)

Marcia, I redeemed myself last night. It was a long and worthwhile practice, and thank you for playing.

Becky, I can't wait until this weekend!

Faith, if you ever get a chance, climb the mango tree.

Nice tag! And well deserved for a very sweet lady.

Vijaya said...

Thank you Gary and Bish.
