The Mystery Blogger Award

Hello, faithful readers!  Before I head up to my cozy, albeit rumpled and messy bed, I need to answer a few questions – because my friend Maggie at Dreaming of Guatemala nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award!


Cue the sparkles and confetti!


So, I’ll take a break from thinking about my cultural project and speech and biology quiz to do something FUN!!!


Here are my mysterious answers to the mysterious questions…


1 What is a good book I’ve read lately?

I am rereading ‘The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.’  It is one of the BEST mysteries I’ve ever read – a great Agatha Christie book!  I found a beautiful copy of it at the antique mall.  As you all probably already know, I am a cheapskate regarding almost anything except books… I hardly ever pass up a book!


2 Do I have any siblings?  If so, tell us about them.


Yes, I do!  3 brothers –

  • Michael, my older brother, is a hard worker, has a full time job that involves a lot of construction and carpentry, and in his spare time plays his guitars (he has several).  He’s a great big brother!
  • My younger brother Jonathan is very, very smart, and a born entertainer! His biggest passion is percussion, one of his favorite bands is little known but amazing group Wintergatan, and he loves to play board games! I love to listen to the music that he writes.
  • Jonathan’s twin brother is Christian.  Christian is our musical renaissance man.  He plays the piano, the penny whistle, the C whistle, the violin, the guitar, the bass guitar, the ukulele… need I go on?    He is thoughtful, kind, and did I mention musical?


3 What’s one of your favorite dinner foods?

ANYTHING Italian!  I love, love love love love love love Italian food… including pizza!


4  Do you play an instrument?

I play piano.  I am available for weddings, funerals, birthday parties, office parties, bridge games, Lamaze classes, ballroom dances, and Chopsticks…


5 What’s a great line that you love from a TV show or movie?


You is kind, you is smart,  you is important

  • The Help


And Sam’s speech from the Two Towers…


Thanks for the nomination, Maggie!  Have a happy week everyone!  And remember, even if you are having a bad week…





Sugar loves you!

  1. That’s cool that you’re reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd! I’ve watched the Poirot episode, but I have yet to read the actual book. The murderer is absolutely brilliant! Christie’s killers always are, but there’s something so surprising about Roger Ackroyd. Ooh you like Italian food? So do I! ❤ Thanks for answering the questions!


        1. That is simply marvelous. Haha, same here! If I had her writing skills, I’d sell millions of bestsellers. …Alright, probably not. But it would still be cool to be able to write like her!
