Mystery Blogger Award: Thank You, Dear Kitty

My dear blogging friend Dear Kitty of Dear Kitty. Some blog has nominated me for the Mystery Blogging Award. I don’t usually have the time to respond, but, it’s the end of the week and I’m really chuffed that Dear Kitty nominated me:

Thank You Dear Kitty; you are a sweetheart!

Thank you, Okoto Enigma, for creating this award!

To begin:

Three things about myself:

  1.  I am a medium for The Collective Consciousness (The C.C.).
  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…  🙂

  5. Music:  Hip Hop, JAZZ, Pop, Rock & Roll, Blues, Country, Classical, Disco, Opera and so much more. Which one/s do you enjoy the most?

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…     😉  😉

Just Because I Like It!

Manha de Carnaval 

elizete-cardoso-cancao
Elizete Cardoso

Listen and Enjoy the wonderful Brasilian vocalist, Elizete Cardoso as she sings Manha de Carnaval (Morning of the Carnival) from the 1959 film ‘Orfeu Negro’ (Black Orpheus). A haunting, tender song written and composed by Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

English Lyrics

I’ll sing to the sun in the sky,

I’ll sing while the sun rises high,

Carnival time is here,

Magical time of year,

Black OrpheusOrfeu_Negro,_1959
Poster by Helmuth Ellgaard for the German release of the film.

And as the time draws near,

Dreams lift my heart!

_____

I’ll sing while I play my guitar,

I’ll cling to this dream from afar,

Will true love come my way,

On this Carnival day,

Or will love stay in my heart?

_____

Will true love come my way,

On this Carnival day,

Or will I be alone with my dream?

Ghia

The result – “The word ‘Please’ must be heard,” said Ghia..  😀

Try as I may, I couldn’t resist. The Beatles’ song – ‘Please, Please Me’ kept repeating in my mind over and over again. So I gave in to an old love and found this magnificent live video on YouTube..

Please Enjoy..!  😀
