Liebster Award 2.0!

And here we go on the second round of the Liebster Award! Elisha from The Voyaging Storyteller tagged me this time. (Thank you, Elisha!) So without further adieu …

Les Questions and My Answers

What’s something that made you happy today?

Hmm … good question. I like this one. One of my classes was online the day I wrote this, so it was shorter, and I didn’t have to go to campus. So yay!

What books have you re-read the most?

For fiction, probably the Cheney Duvall, MD series. Oh, and my own, if editing counts. 😊

Probably the Bible for nonfiction.

Do you think aliens exist?

Nope. Biblically, I think it gets a little too sketchy, because how do they fit into the redemption of humans? Are they not sinners and don’t need a Savior? Because if they’re not angels or demons or humans … it gets really weird really quick.

So yeah. No aliens, in my opinion.

If you had to travel back in time and permanently live there, what time period would you choose and why?

Yikes, this one is hard! Maybe … the fifties or something? I don’t want to live way back when, because sanitation was lacking. Yuck.

What are some of the main qualities you value in a good book?

Good characters. Solid, exciting, or intriguing plot. And lots of truth. We need the Bible here. 😊

Would you rather be extremely short or extremely tall?

Probably extremely short. I feel like it gets really difficult to even function in society when you’re extremely tall, because you run into the tops of doorways and everything. But if you’re really short, you’d probably have issues reaching things … still going with short, though. 😊 You could definitely hide more easily as a short person.

What motivates you to get out of bed every morning?

I guess I don’t really sit there and think about giving myself an option. 😊 But I think it’s getting duties done, doing the things that God has called me to. And it doesn’t hurt that I get to read for a bit and have a protein shake when I get up, either. 😊

What is a unique quality or quirk about you that not many people know about?

I’m a health food nut! My family knows about this, but most other people don’t. So yeah. Give me all the salads and avocados, please! 😊

Is it OK to ask the genie for infinite wishes?

Um … no. Not that genies can grant wishes or they even exist, but that kind of power or control seems very dangerous.

What is your favorite kind of weather?

Definitely like sunny and 65 or 70. Probably about like everyone’s favorite weather. 😊

If you could have tea and biscuits with any fictional character, who would it be and why?

We’re going back to Cheney Duvall here. She’s just my old friend, basically, and it’d be hilarious to actually talk to her. Oh, and Shiloh has to come with her. We’d have a blast, and besides, those people were always eating the most rich, delicious food. We wouldn’t have the British tea and biscuits; we’d have real Southern biscuits and sweet tea. πŸ˜‰

Since this is my second time around on this tag, I’m not going to nominate anyone. However, if you’d like to answer Elisha’s really interesting questions, consider yourself nominated! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh I loved this post!!
    I appreciate what you said about wanting books to have the Bible in them! That is so true!
    And believe me, coming from a tall person, it is extremely annoying to be above average height. πŸ˜†
    Great post! Thanks!

  2. Mmmm, Southern biscuits and sweet tea… that sounds so delicious! I actually haven’t read the Cheney Duvall, MD series, so it sounds like I’ll have to put that on my to-read list! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

    • I know, right? πŸ˜‰ And yes, you should definitely check that series out. It’s not the best written or groundbreaking series in the world, but the characters are golden, and their adventures are pretty fun. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Vannessa! Loved reading your answers!
    Lol. My sister loves avocados too, and I like a good salad (actually, that sounds really good right now…) What got you into health food, if I may ask?

    I’m also short, and one of the perks is that if you can’t put the dishes away on the topmost shelf, you can just get someone taller to do it for you πŸ˜‰

    • Aw, thank you!

      And yes, salads are the best – and if you add avocado to that equation, they’re just amazing. πŸ™‚ My whole family is into healthy eating and working out, so I guess I was kind of raised in that environment. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve started having a few health issues, and I truly believe the Lord made our bodies to be able to heal themselves if we give them the right nutrients. (And of course, it’s His Will.) So I guess the health food deal is a combination of growing up like that and just wanting to feel good and helping out the body the Lord gave me! πŸ™‚

      Ahh, yes, that could definitely be an issue – but there you go, just find one of the tall folks to help you. πŸ™‚ But see, you’ll never bang your head on a low ceiling or doorway, so that’s the bonus, I guess. πŸ˜‰

      • Our family is the same. When we were little, my younger sister developed a bad intolerance to gluten; that in turn launched us onto the road to healthier eating. My mom even does natural herbal remedies and supplements sometimes (i.e ginger, lavender, vitamin C, etc.)

        Yep, it is πŸ˜‰ On the other hand, some of the taller people in the family can’t quite get into the lower cabinets, so it evens out XD

      • Aw, that sounds like your mama takes great care of you all. And yes, herbal remedies and supplements are so amazing! I’m a big essential oils person. The smells are so good … πŸ™‚

        Hahaha, that’s perfect!

      • Ahh, I love all of the “minty” oils – spearmint, peppermint, wintergreen, and all the combinations. And frankincense, but it’s so expensive. And thieves, too.

        Basically all of them, hahaha! Do you have any favorites?

  4. Me, a short person: *snorting at your answer* (Okay, I’m 4’11”. But at my age, girls are a tad bit taller…LOL!!)

    And ayyyyyyy, 65 to 70 degrees?? Sounds a bit cold (just a bit)…LOL!! Then again, it needs to BE 65 to 70 degrees around here for me to determine that…*smh* Weather is as unpredictable as girls are.

    And AHHHH, YES, THE FIFTIES!!! THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN AMAZING TIME PERIOD TO LIVE IN!!! All the dresses…*my fangirling over dresses in the background*

    • Hahaha, yes! I’m not really short or tall, so maybe I’m not a good judge of if I’d like to be exceedingly short or tall … πŸ˜‰

      And yes, if there’s a breeze blowing or something, it could get a little chilly at that temperature. “Weather is as unpredictable as girls are” – hahaha!

      I know, I love the fifties dresses. They’re just so pretty! πŸ™‚


      • LOL, you would be what we call “average.” I mean, hey, if you’re tall, you can intimidate people.
        (Example a: my bestie who’s twelve and a ridiculous 5’10”.
        That is the reason why I can use her as my bodyguard and as the person to haul me around on her back…πŸ˜‚)
        But if you’re short like me, you get accustomed to people’s reactions when they find out that no, you’re not twelve and that no, you’re also not nine. (Lovely story. πŸ˜‚)
        And then you also end up having some of the best hiding spots during hide-and-seek because you can fit in places most people can’t. 🀣🀣

        Ayyyy, yeah. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Jackets are wonderful…
        LOL, but it’s true!

        Right??? Ahhhhh, and think about not having to lock your doors at night when you slept! And then just all the other neat stuff that goes into it (well, except segregation…that wouldn’t be so neat on my end πŸ˜…).

      • Hahaha, yes! That’s what Kristina does for me. She’s a little taller than I am, and she does have the whole intimidation thing down. I don’t know how she does it, because I can’t manage. But everyone needs that kind of friend, right? Even better when they’re your best friend. πŸ˜‰ But she doesn’t usually haul me around on her back … Ahh, but yes, exactly! You will totally win the game of hide and seek that way. πŸ™‚

        I didn’t even think about the not having to lock your doors part of the equation! That would be so amazing and kinda crazy at this point for us. πŸ™‚ And yeah, all that segregation business was not good … *sigh* I guess all eras have their massive problems. (That ol’ issue of a sinful world, I guess … )


  5. LOL, must be because she’s tall…and generally, big sisters have their little sisters’ backs. πŸ˜‰ (And Ig if she’s excellent at staring people down and could probably physically attack people or threaten them with a broom [totally not my method of persecution…that I haven’t exactly used on anyone because I can’t bring myself to due to being too sympathetic of people XD], then there ya go.)
    Yessss, LOL!! My bestie’s one of my supplementary little sisters…who just isn’t so little height-wise…The last time she hauled me around on her back was in Wal-Mart until she decided she was done after several seconds…LOL!!
    Right?? I guess being short also helps and doesn’t help when you’re running as well…as long as you have relatively long legs…LOL!!

    Yeah, I’ve heard that mentioned before, and I’m like, “*screaming noises* NO HAVING TO LOCK YOUR DOORS OR PUT UP THOSE “BEWARE OF THE DOG” SIGNS ON YOUR FENCES OR THREATENING PEOPLE WITH THAT “WE HAVE THIS ALARM SYSTEM IN OUR HOUSE THAT WILL ACTIVATE IF YOU TRY BREAKING IN AND MIGHT ALSO START POURING PUDDING AND SPRINKLES ON YOU” SIGN??!!” Yeahhhhhhhh, every era’s bound to have their problems…*le sigh* Praise the Lord that this world is not our home! πŸ˜€

    • Oh yeah, big sisters are good bodyguards. πŸ™‚ But an attack with a broom?? Certainly does sound quite threatening in the right hands …

      Hey, you needed a taxi through Walmart, right? πŸ™‚ And supplementary little sisters are wonderful.

      Pouring pudding and sprinkles? That sounds like an … interesting security system. That may attract intruders with sweet tooths. (Or are they sweet teeth in that context?) Hahaha …
      And amen, you’re so right, sister! We’re just a-passing through this ol’ world. πŸ™‚
