Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Award Appreciations!

on January 29, 2014

It’s feast or famine here in Daisyville – we were honored with four awards recently!

Thank you so much to trifles for these two awards:



To Marty Manx at Musings by Marty Manx for this award:

shareloveshareboxaward from Speedy Jan 2014

And to Karel atΒ Peace With My Life for the latest Leibster award:

Thank you ShareChair!

Karel came up with several thought-provoking questions for her nominees….let’s see what we can do with these:

  1. Where was your favorite place to live, and why?
    My favorite place to live is a place I’ve only visited – but quite frequently. It’s a small town in the mountains of PA, an old town that has the perfect combination of quaintness, community, charm, and trendiness. It’s not easy to strike the perfect balance between retaining and respecting quaint old-world charm while moving forward with modern-day trends like contemporary cafes and restaurants as well as shops in a small town like this, but they’ve done it. And the residents are so friendly and community-minded, which is what I love most. I’d find myself a little cottage by a stream where I could plant wildflowers and move there in a heartbeat if I could.
  2. What books you are currently reading?
    That’s a full question because I’m an avid reader of nonfiction. Right now I’m reading “Lady Almina and The Real Downton Abbey” (which leads to the answer about my favorite TV show!), and I have at least a dozen more books waiting in the wings.
  3. Do you think it is better to be honest or kind?
    Both. My first choice is always honesty….unless there’s nothing the other person can gain from it and kindness is just, well, kinder.
  4. If you had one day in your life to live over again, would you rather live a day in which you want to change the outcome (like to avoid a mistake) or live a day that was so terrific that you’d like to do it again?
    There’s one day in particular that I’d like to relive with the strength and knowledge I now have that I didn’t have then. My reaction to a situation would have been 180 degrees different, which would have changed and improved SO many things for the rest of my life. I often think of how I wish I could relive that moment in time.
  5. If you watch television, what is your favorite series? Yep, Downton Abbey. Hands-down favorite.
  6. What is your favorite song of all times?
    Tough question because I love so many diverse types of music. But I’d have to say that it’s equal parts “Rhapsody in Blue”, almost anything Baroque (especially if there’s a harpsichord featured), and many songs by the Rolling Stones heading the long list. See? I told you my tastes are very diverse!

I consulted Daisy about nominations, and she is in agreement that all of our blogging buddies deserve these awards, so if you’re kind enough to take the time to read this, please help yourself to any or all of the awards if you’d like them. We cherish you all!

      Easy you’re ALWAYS welcome to live with us! I really hope this dream of my family’s comes true, because there are LOTS of new people to meet and lots of new woods to explore. Hope you enjoy the book as much as my mom is!

  4. Daisy you and your mom deserve all the awards that you get. You are great!

  5. Novroz says:

    I also got the award and I think I’ll be the one answering πŸ˜‰
    We are so different in reading, I am an avid fiction reader. It’s interesting to read more about you.

  6. Coccolino says:

    Congrats on your awards, love reading the answers!

  7. Congratulations on your awards!!! I really need to get in on Downtown Abbey. I don’t watch much TV so forgive me for never having seen it before.

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thanks Dawn! If you enjoy costume dramas set in late 19th/early 20th century England, you’ll probably like Downton. The book I’m reading that gives the facts about the actual family that lived in Highclere Castle (where the show is filmed) during that time period just further enhances the show for me. πŸ™‚

    Congrats on your well deserved awards. I haven’t gotten into Downton Abby either…lol.

  9. megtraveling says:

    Congratulations and best wishes for your awards! I like Downton Abbey too… πŸ™‚

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thank you! We’re on pins and needles waiting to see what Edith will do about her “situation” and hoping that Anna and Bates will work things out. πŸ™‚ It’s interesting, though, to see a costume drama about an era I’ve read so much literature from. It wasn’t an easy time to be a woman!

  10. Misaki says:

    Congrats on all your fab awards!

  11. Big congrats on all your awards! Sorry we’re late in getting around…. πŸ™‚

    Mum sent you an email, thanks so much for all your support, you’re pawsome!

    I hope you’re having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

  12. Oh my gosh! SO many awards! Congrats dear friend!
