Awesome Blogger Award

MurmelMeister got nominated for the “Awesome Blogger Award“!

Thank you!!!

…and I am disappointed I can not track this award til it’s roots. It’s my first nomination for this award and I am honored. Counting nominations I’m up to 7 blogger award nominations now and I cherish each and everyone of them.

I’d like to thank Crazy Nerds for this kind nomination and the interesting questions. Anisha & Anjana are two Crazy Nerds running a blog that is good for heart and soul. It makes you reflect and puts a smile on your face. I always enjoy visiting their blog and yes, I gotta admit: I love nerds. Hey, my dear nerds out there, do you mind answering this question for me too, please: “What is something you like to do that other people would probably consider “weird” if they knew?” Shout out to you both and once again – thanks for the nomination!

Questions for MurmelMeister

Do you believe in spirituality?
I sure do, being a person who tries to be in the present moment with heart and soul this goes without saying. I am a Buddhist, looking for my place and my answers in this world.

Are you into gardening?
Totally! I love being outside and am lucky to call a big garden mine, where I can grow fruits, vegetables and herbs. I love my herbs, as I’m crazy about spices and cooking. I always try to spice up my life.
I love the sound of nature while being outside, the smell and lot’s more. Being in my garden and working with my hands, getting all dirty and feeling mother nature is very relaxing to me.

Share the picture of any DIY project you’ve done, if any.

  • I do a lot of drawing on stones and wood.
  • I built a tree house and a pirate ship.
  • I built my own kitchen.
  • And I built stuff for and together with Minime.

Those were the first things that popped into my mind. I enjoy being creative.

In terms of direct hits:
Rescources & Priorities
Generally, my haikus got the most likes. It’s two on the top:
Freedom Haiku:
January Haiku:
And may I add, that although I really love poetry, my favorite blog posts did not get enough love yet?!

Is there any other art form you’re familiar with, other than blogging? If yes, what is it?
Before I started blogging I finished writing three books. I’ve always been into writing. I started writing poems way back in time, as I was a heart broken teenager.
Besides writing, I love decoration and building stuff.

Which is the most used application in your phone?
I’m not into my cellphone, to be really honest. I always try to avoid it. Unless someone calls or sents a message, it gets no attention from my end. Actually, I use it to play music through itunes when I’m in my car. Does that count?

What’s the longest time you’ve slept so far, at a stretch?
I don’t remember, but I remember the opposite. Since I’m a mother I deal with a lack of sleep. Mostly it’s 4-5 hours of sleep.

Do you prefer reading short or long blog posts?
I’d say short, meaning approx. 500 words. If I’d like to read more, I enjoy it on paper. I am old school and I do like using a pen in order to make notes or mark stuff.

Do you volunteer? Online or offline?
Yes, I do regularly, although I don’t want to commit myself long-term, due to a general lack of time.

Was there a turning point in your life?
There were quiet a few lessons of life, that became turning points and strongly influenced me.
One thing I remember well, after facing the possibility of being seriously sick and getting a good diagnose, I was going outside, looking at the sky and I said: “Der Himmel ist heute blauer als sonst.”,meaning “Today the sky is more blue as the other days.”

…what!? No more questions left!? I really enjoyed answering, thanks so much to my lovely nerds. I enjoyed your questions a lot!

    Congratulations on getting nominated for this award, Sovely, and thank you so much for the nomination! I really enjoyed your answers (I, too, don’t give my cell phone much attention lol). Love your questions and can’t wait to answer them!

    Your DIY projects are simply superb. Each one of them tells your love for them. I admire your patience and time management skills!

    Your post on resources and priorities speaks a lot about your personality. I loved your habits of prioritising stuff, and spending time with family as much as possible!

    It’s very good to know you liked my questions. It’s a great pleasure!

    To answer your questions for the nerds, I have few weird habits related to food. I can smell food, mostly when cooking, and determine if it’d turn out good! I eat my least favorite food on the plate first; the host usually thinks it’s my favorite and ends up serving more. My bad!

    Sending you lots of smiles!!

      Dear Anisha, I’d like to thank you for your kind words and for taking the effort of having a closer look and getting back to me. I aprreciate it a lot. You know, I was never really gifted the way that I could live of it, but I always enjoyed being creative and doing things the way I want it to be. It’s not supposed to be perfect, it’s supposed to have a character. Yes, I find my heart and soul in every tiny thing and it gives me peace.

      As far as sources and priorities is concerned, I think once you came to the point of a break down, you realize what is important in your life!

      Hey, I do have the habbit too. I never taste the food while cooking, it’s my nose too! We’re freaks and I’m loving it!

      Best wishes to you! Sovely
