To begin:

Three things about myself:

  2. I am off on a trip to England and Japan next week.  (And really looking forward to it.) I’ll not be able to visit your blog as regularly as I usually enjoy.  My apologies in advance..  ❤
  3. I am currently backwards aging and loving the difference I see and feel in me…  (Loving wearing a whole new, younger wardrobe!!!)   😉  😉

Dear Kitty’s questions, and my answers are:

1. What is your favourite bird?

This, and the following questions are sooooo hard to answer. It’s so difficult to choose ~ I had some wonderful experiences last Spring watching two Spotted Dove couples nesting. So interesting; I was like a first time mum all over again! 2. What is your favourite mammal?

Dear Kitty, you have asked me such difficult questions! I’ve pondered and pondered and finally come to this conclusion. I don’t have a favourite; they are all wonderful. However, the Cheetah has always had a sweet piece of my heart:

3. What is your favourite fish?

I don’t think I can go past the Clown Fish; they are sooooo cute!

4. What is your favourite insect?

This one comes easily ~ I love the Butterfly…

5. What is your favourite plant?

Hmmmm, Dear Kitty; there are soooo many wonderful plants. Let me think: Because I can’t choose I’ll add my man’s favourite; the Orchid…

Five questions for my nominees:

  1. What is your most favourite hobby?
  2. Do you enjoy cooking, or do you enjoy being cooked for?
  3. Do you have a pet? Tell us all there is to know…  🙂

  3. Dear Carolyn,
    Congratulations on your nomination on this Award.
    Thank you very much for nominating me for your turn, but for lack of time not to be able to publish a post on this subject in time as I still have other posts to publish for this month (I hope you do not want me), I prefer to reply here in comment of your article by talking about 3 things about me:

    1. I work as a web writer but I would like to become an international researcher since I have a PhD in Economics,
    2. I am a reserved girl,
    3. I will celebrate my 33 years in 7 days.

    So, I hope that my answers make you happy and I wish you nice week-end and especially good trip for England and Japan, look forward to reading you.


    1. They do, indeed, make me happy, Anita! So pleased you have chosen to respond in this way, and so pleased you mentioned your birthday.

      I will be overseas so, just in case, I shall wish you many happy returns for your 33rd. All the very best for the coming year; and do have a wonderful day!

      Lots of Love… 🙂

  4. Congrats Carolyn! And thank you so much for nominating me 😀 loved reading your answers.. Have a wonderful trip!! Do share your pics and experiences with us when your back. Lots of love.. 😘😘

  5. Congrats and well done, Carolyn, answering these difficult questions! The Orchid is my favorite plant too…and you know my favorite bird 🙂 XXX

  6. Concatulations on your Well-deserved Award, dear Carolyn and Thank You for nominating us for it too. We feel deeply honoured *bows*. Your answers are fabulous, it’s always nice to learn more about our furriends 🙂 We love butterflies too and Granny has decorated the whole livingroom with… fake…butterflies…still don’t know why she didn’t invited the garden ones into our room 😀 Grandpaw is a big Country fan and Granny is the New Wave type, but they both love also all kinds of music and I like Classic music. I listen to it every day. I guess I was Mezart in a former life… but enough about me….Enjoy your special trip to London and Japan. We are with you in our thoughts and waiting patiently for all the news you bring back home 🙂 Extra Double Pawkisses for the weekend and the trip 🙂 ❤ ❤

    1. And I am deeply honoured to know you, Binky; Granny and Grandpaw, too… ❤
      Butterflies, Country music, New Wave and Classical Mezart music are all so wonderful; just like you!
      Yes, I'll be eager to share the news when I return… and lots of pics too! 🙂

  7. Congratulations on your award, and thank you for nominating me! The orchid is my favourite flower as well – did you know that it actually grows naturally at the top of trees with its roots in the air? Will get onto doing your tag asap 🙂

    1. I hope you don’t mind, I’m an animal person I will use the questions given to you, but use the questions you gave us for my nominees to reply to.

      1. Yes, Elsie, I know this about you and can thoroughly understand… 😉
        We are somewhat alike, for sure… You know my love for animals, in fact, all creatures! 🙂

        1. You too….
          Though, I don’t think it will be quiet. We have a dance social to attend, last minute shopping, etc. You know what it’s like… 🙂
          But; all good…. 🙂

  8. Ok. I’m not nominated but:

    1) I don’t know. Maybe talking to people.
    2) I love cooking.
    3) No.
    4) The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring. It’s a fantastic fairy tale story that’s well written and neatly paced.
    5) classical like Vaughn Williams, Debussy, Holst. It’s timeless.

  9. You are more than welcome!
    I love cooking ~ Me too, and even more, I love to eat!
    Debussy ~ Clair de Lune has been my most favourite piece of music since I was a very young girl ~ so hauntingly beautiful. 🙂
    Thanks for commenting; I enjoyed it!

  10. Dear Carolyn, I loved reading more about you and your favorite things. Thank you for this wonderful blog post. Thank you also for thinking of me and for nominating me! You’re wonderful! I can’t wait to read your impressions from England! I am sending you Love and Blessings! xoxoxo

    1. It was my absolute pleasure, Dear Mihaela..
      it is so very good that we have connected; I am, as I’ve said, looking forward to the day when we can meet in person! I get tingles just thinking about it… 🙂
      Yes, I am also looking forward to this adventure. We have just landed at Heathrow! ❤
