Liebster Sunday Selfies

Oh MY!
We were nominated for a Liebster Award!
Teddy and his Mom, Miss Pam nominated us. Thanks so much!

Liebster award from Pam @ Two Spoiled Cats

There are even several variations of the badge but this is the one I received and am passing on to those of you who I nominate and choose to participate!
Rules to the Liebster Blogger awards:  
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and give them a big hug give them a link to the blog.
2. Answer the  questions given to you or at least most of them.
3. Share  facts about yourself.
4. Nominate several other bloggers.
5. Ask your nominees some good questions
6. Notify your nominees once you’ve uploaded your post.

The SIX Questions I got, for ME to Answer were:

1.   Do you think there is life on other planets?   Why or Why Not?
Well, that becomes a theological question…I believe God created the earth and all that is in it, and He made the Heavens and all the universe. If He made life on those things, only He knows for sure…but the explorations we have done as mere men have not revealed life…at least as we know it.

2.   What is your VERY FAVORITE meal either to cook yourself OR to order in a restaurant?
Salmon!! Grilled or baked with various toppings. ( I have a whole collection of yummy Salmon recipes...I do wish it wasn't so pricey, though...else we might have it more often!)

3.   If you could afford ANY car in the world – what would it be?
Now that is tough…so many to choose from…at least one that holds all our family and furry ones too…and the luggage we need to travel. Car???  Maybe a large RV would be better! I am not fussy about vehicles, so maybe nice fully equipped Cadillac? Wait, do they make RV's?? LOL!

4.  Are you superstitious?
No way!
I believe in Providence. Nothing happens by chance, even though it may seem that way...and the answers as to why may not ever be revealed to us...but...well, there truly is a reason for everything.

5.   Do you prefer early mornings or late nights or both?
I used to be an earlybird  lady, but my work schedule turned me into a night owl.

6.   What is your favorite type of music?
Classical, namely from the period from about 1650 to 1850, or so.

Now I know that a whole lot of bloggers have stopped accepting awards – in fact it had been a very long time (years) since we even saw blogging awards making the rounds.   But I’ll pass the award on whomever would LIKE to participate, so  please do.    I think most people already have the Liebster but like me – if you want another one (!) and answer the questions – then you can have a matched pair of awards!!!
I love to break/make my own rules...or bend them to fit my style, so in order for me to properly participate, I will let you just make up your own questions to answer and you can nominate (or not), as many others as you wish:)
(Or you can answer the same questions as I did...)

I hope that some of our pals that didn't get nominated by others recently will take this one from us...we are so glad we have you all as our pals and we think you are all wonderful to be Liebster! Which means loved and favorite...from the German.
OK, since this is Selfie Sunday, here is a guest furs here  are giving petcretary some slack...and she does take pictures of other things besides us, MOL/BOL!

This little dude comes by a lot to steal/help himself to the seeds that fall on the ground under the feeders. He/she gave up a long time ago trying to access the feeders themselves, because they are squirrel proof! Having just said that, petcretary was refilling the one above this little rascal. She got distracted and left it open on the ground for a good long while. When she remembered about it, the little red rodent was inside the feeder. He/she must have thought he had scored the seed lottery!!
Sorry but there are no pictures of THAT! Her camera was in the house...
I will come down when its safe...

I am a wee bit shy...

So I am staying behind the fence...which keeps those silly dogs out...sort of...Yummy seeds here to nosh on, but I will pause for a selfie!

Recently we showed you our weeping cherry tree, starting to bloom. Well about a week or so ago it was in full 'glory', but now its all done, thanks to wind and heavy rainfall...and the green leaves are out now. We will have to wait for another springtime for the next showing:)
So here are a couple of images of the pretty blossoms.

Hopefully the furry selfies will be back next time:)

Squirrelly Selfie is hopping in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop We thank The Kitties Blue for hosting this weekly feature!


  1. Concatulations on the Liebster award (silly spell check wants to change this to Lobster award!). Furry well deserved.
    Never saw/saw a picture of a red squirrel before - the ones here are all gray, so this was extra special to see.

    Stay safe, stay well, xoxo, Bibi & Meep

    The squirrel is furry cute. Mummy says it reminds her of London. She used to squirrels all the time in the parks there. She has neffur seen one here in Israel though :-(
    The cherry tree is beautiful and also reminds Mummy of London. She used to go to Regent's Park a lot when She was a child and there was a whole avenue of cherry trees that used to flower in May.

  3. That tree is/was amazing! And that squirrel is a cutie. Congrats on the award..and we enjoyed reading your well thought out responses to the questions.
