A Special Post

Yes, my friends; this is a very special post because one of my special friends gave me an award that makes me very proud.


And who is this very special friend?

None other than…. dada…..


Binky ~ and her very special human ~ Granny!

Yes, Binky, and her very special human, Granny, came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal pussy-cats.. errr… humans


Fight a never ending battle for truth, justice and the right for every pussy-cat to have a Granny to love, protect, and do whatever they are told… errr… asked to do!

Brotherhood of the World ~ Bloggers Award ~ dada…..


Thank You to Binky, and her very special human ~ Granny for honouring me with this fabulous award….   Lots of Love to you both!  🐾 🐾 🐾  xoxoxo


Now for the… errrr… necessities ~

1. Thank the purrson  human who nominated you and link back to their blog ~ Got that!

2. Answer the questions sent to you. ~ Scroll down to see the scintillating sensible answers

3. Nominate around 10 bloggers. ~ oh boy, will 1 or 2 be enough!?!

4. Create your set of questions for your nominees. ~ Hmmmmmmm……. thinking..!

5. List the rules and display the Brotherhood of the World Award on your post or blog. ~ Lookin’ good!  😉

Now to answer Binky’s (the femme fatale) and Granny’s questions ~

1. What do you think when you wake up in the morning?

“If I roll over I might just catch a few more winks…”~ sort of like a puppy does!

2. Do you have a kind of ritual when you wake up?

Oh, this is so boring, so sorry, but, my morning routine is so ordinary. I just know I have to tell the truth… Here goes…


I kiss my man, get up, walk into the puppy-dog’s room, give them both pats and smiles, then walk around the house opening all the blinds and some windows; walk back through the puppy-dog’s room, give them more pats and smiles, watch as they slowly stretch to greet the day, and think how wonderful it is to have sleepy puppy-dogs to love, and be loved by. Kiss my man again, and what comes next is nobody’s business but mine…     😉  😉


3. What makes you happy?

Being loved, loving, having lunch with my beautiful daughter  ❤

Veronica's Birth Day-14
Veronica and Carolyn 2008

and having this precious man by my side…    ❤


4. Have you ever had a sign from the Angels and how did you feel after that?

Every day in every way my Angels, The Collective Consciousness, are with me always…

5. What is your hobby, ecept…here we go again… ec..ec..exxxx…except sleeping?

We, my gorgeous man and I, are just getting back to the hobby we enjoy the most ~ Dancing!  What a joy it is to be with him, and the many wonderful friends we share this most precious time with…  Oh yes, Binky and Granny; sleeping is a wonderful hobby, too!

  1. Thank you dear Carolyn for the award! 🙂 And like you, I don’t generally participate. But.. once I post today’s blog — which has a special reason for being today, I will consider! 🙂 And I know Beaumont the Sheepadoodle and Marley the Great Cat will be delighted. ❤

    1. Hahaaaa Louise, the wonderful pets who mean so much to our lives. Yes, I understand… 🙂
      Consider away, and know that whatever your choice, I have had great delight including you… ❤

  2. Hello Carolyn,
    First of all, congratulations on this award and thank you very much for nominated me
    Because of lack of time to prepare a good post as you have made on this page, I prefer to answer directly to your questions in the comments
    Thank you for understand and do not blame me for that.

    1. I am both cat lover and dog lover. Proof, I have 3 cats in the house (the Mum called Fred with 2 kittens called Boy and Black)

    2. yes , I like to cook even if I do not have much time because of work , I can do that on weekends occasionally . My favorite recipe is the cassoulet .
    In summary , ingredients for 4 persons:
    – 750 g of wet beans
    – 8 pure garlic pork sausage
    – 4 slices
    – 4 fresh legs and duck breasts
    – 4 slices chops
    – 1 can of tomato paste
    – 1 handful of green pepper
    – 4 large onions
    – 1 garlic clove salt , thyme, bay
    Preparation time : 60 minutes
    Cooking time : 180 minutes
    To each his own way of cooking , as it is to mix all these ingredients but try only to very soft lights. you can serve this dish with rice


    3. My hobbies now since I have my blog is writing . But I also love shopping with my sisters and my mom and chat with them

    4. I like drawing, I have some collection in my house

    5. If I have a whole day free , I would start by taking a good shower. Then I put on my cool and sexy clothes to go shopping to buy skinny jeans, little dresses , sneakers, shoes and perfume bottles . Then I would go to lunch at chic resto solo or with friends. I go after to rest in front of the screen to watch a good movie. At night I would cook a good meal and to enjoy before going to bed

    I really hope that you enjoy reading my answers. And again, congrats and thank you so much for nomination. That’s really kind of you to think to me

    🙂 ❤

    1. Most agreeable, sweet Anita… ❤

    1. Indeed I feel very happy, Deepak, when I’m dancing. 🙂
      It’s wonderful to be well enough to get back to it…
      My man is also very pleased, too…
      He loves to dance, just as much as me! 🙂

  3. Thank you for the award, Carolyn, much appreciated.

    I’m in awe of you and your hubby dancing, it takes my breath away.
    You two were born to dance, it reminds me of famous dance pairs in history, you both look that gorgeous and in tune with each other, oh, I know, the word is: Elegant.


    1. You are so very welcome, Genie…
      I don’t expect you to participate; just lovely to include you… 🙂
      Hahahaaaaa… Not sure ’bout the famous dance pairs in history; but, Ballroom Dancing is very elegant… Just so happy to be able to be doing it, again! We both do love it so! 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for accepting the Award, dear Carolyn and making such a special post too. We loved the answers. It seems that Sweetie and Beau are long sleepers too…just like me…and we are happy to read that you were able to get into dancing again. We need those happy paws…feet to make us feel good 🙂 There was just one thing I have to mention…it’s not really impawtant and it really doesn’t matter..at all…but…I am a Ladycat…like the She of Charles Aznavour…well..I think you know what I mean 😉 We loved that you took the time to participate. You get an Extra double Pawkiss for that and one for a wonderful day 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Oh, my dear sweet Binky… My deepest and most profound apologies. I will correct this inexcusable mistake right now; well, after I finish telling you how much I adore you and think you are just about the sweetest pussy-cat in the whole wide world… 🙂
      Yes, Sweetie and Beau adore a sleep-in, and a sleep anywhere for very long periods of the day, as well as the night. In fact, they are sleeping at my feet as I write to you and Granny!
      And I must thank Granny for being a wonderful secretary, and for caring and loving you, as I love Sweetie and Beau.
      Thank You for including me in this very special Award…
      Much Love to You Both… ❤
      Pawkisses for you Binky 🐾 🐾 🐾
      And very special kisses and hugs for you Granny… xoxoxo

  5. “Are you a cat lover, a dog lover, a rabbit lover, or any animal lover? Tell us about your animal loves.”

    I love dogs, especially Border Collies.
    I’m an animal lover too, and bird lover.

    “Do you enjoy cooking? If yes, what is your most favourite meal… (Include the recipe for us, if you can… yum!)”

    I used to enjoy cooking, however, I discovered that I love beng cooked for even more. 😉

    “What is your favourite pastime?”

    Walking outside in Nature.

    “Have you any special qualities we should know about ~ like painting, drawing, dancing, cooking, walking, hiking? ~ you get the drift… 😉 ”

    Im fabulous at hanging out on the beach. 😉

    “If you had one day to do anything you’d like to do; tell us alllllll about it!”

    I’d spend the day on the Galápagos Islands.

    1. The Border Collie is so gorgeous, Genie… They look so playful, and full of beans ~ I’ll have to do a Reflection for them! 😉

      I am now very envious ~ it is so nice to have someone cook for you! Especially if they can cook really wonderful meals! 😉
      Walking in Nature is so wonderful. Something I love, too… 🙂
      Hahaaaa… Lucky you, once again! Hanging out at the beach requires, I’m sure, lots of patience and endurance! (I’m going green all over!) 😉
      Wouldn’t that be absolutely spectacular. I’ll go with you… I’ve often thought how wonderful the Galapagos Islands must be… such a variety of creatures! I’d be in my own heaven! 🙂

      Thank You, Genie, so much for participating! This has been such fun! ❤

  6. That’d be fabolous if you did a Reflection for Border Collies! ❤️
    Here’s my baby boy Border Collie, Dancer, when he was just a wee pup:

    Genie calls me Dancer,
    She calls me Thief too,
    Says, “Ya took all the cuteness
    In the world, an’ saved it just fur you.”

  7. Dearest Carolyn, I’d be honoured (and so would Dancer too, he told me so) if you use the image of Dancer for your Refelection on Border Collies. ❤️ xoxoxo

  8. Congrats, dear Carolyn! True, I have shied away from awards. It just got to the point where it seemed to be raining blog awards. However, it is lovely to know that you appreciate us all, yes, including me, a non-nominee. Which gives me an idea to make a thank you/ appreciation post on my GLaM blog in the future.
    Big pawkisses to Granny, Binky, you & all your cyber friends!
    This is a very special post! xoxoxo 😀

    1. Yes, definitely all appreciated, Resa; particularly you..! 😉 😉
      Like you I’ve shied away from awards; they can become an all consuming thing, as we all know. However, this one I just couldn’t resist! 🙂

  9. Awww so nice to find out more about you, Carolyn 🙂 I enjoyed reading your morning routine of patting your dogs, smiling, and kissing your man ~ It is a routine full of love ❤ Congratulations on the award 🙂

    1. Thank You so much, Christy; it was a pleasure to participate in this one; Binky and Granny are very special.. 😉
      Yes, these days my life is full of love; so nice! ❤
      Kisses and hugs being sent your way…
