Pieces of Gravity

Pretending to be normal helps.

Category: This and That

Thank You, Adrea :)


Hi…… I finally got around to completing the requirements (all centered around the number 11) for the Liebster nomination sent over to me by Adrea in Wonderland  . Love her! So if you’re curious, here you go….

The 11 Questions Adrea picked:

1. Whyyyyy do you like…me? Okay just kidding. Describe your blog in five words. Shimmery darkness with optimistic shades

2. What inspired you to start blogging? Rejection letters. Ha!

3. Do you ever want to throw your hands up in the air and stop blogging? I take short breaks now and then – okay some have been somewhat longish- but never ever do my hands want to fly up in the air and just give up.

4. Are you currently in love and with what or who? I’m in love with my best friend.  I think he loves me too.  Or maybe he just realizes I’m the only one that can feed him and walk him.

5. How many times have you been in love? Once, I think. Maybe twice.

6. Do you identify as carnivore, vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan, or something I haven’t mentioned on here? Carnivore sounds brutal, but I do eat meat.  I tried a vegetarian diet once.  Lasted about a year.  I have a weakness for cheeseburgers 😦

7. Does internal health or external beauty influence your healthy food choices more? and if you don’t ever choose healthy, tell us why. Hmmmm… A bit of both, I guess. I do recognize certain foods tend to travel straight to my hips. I try to eat smaller portions and exercise regularly so I don’t have to say goodbye to yummy eats entirely. I also don’t want to feel like crap all the time, so I minimize the amount of snack foods I keep in the pantry.

8. When you get two spare hours, do you chill or play? Chill.  Because I play during the remaining hours.

9. What is your favorite activity? Go ahead, say what you want. Chilling with my nephew. He’s 5.  And thinks I’m 6.

10. Sexting, yay or nay? Blushing. My goodness. Yay?  Nah, nay… My nana could be reading!  Nay Nana, nay!  Orrrrr is it……. 😉

11. One wish is granted to you – what do you wish for?  More wishes… LOL


11 random facts about me….

  1. I own a guitar, but can’t play.
  2. I want to learn how to play the guitar.
  3. I once had a pet mouse for six years.  His name was Gus Gus 🙂
  4. For my 5th birthday, my parents gave me a puppy.  Instead of putting a bow on said puppy, they thought it was clever to gift wrap a bag of dog food.  I cried because I thought they gave me dog food for my birthday.  I pouted, “But I don’t like dog food.” Man I was a brat!
  5. My sister is my best friend.
  6. My sister is younger, but I tell people she’s the older sibling… hehehehe
  7. I’m not a morning person.
  8. Can’t function without caffeine.
  9. I love to play jokes.  Just played one on my boss.  I’m dying! I think it’s hilarious to scare people.  Air horns are awesome!
  10. I will never scare my dog again!
  11. I could eat pizza twice a week.  Maybe three times.  I won’t say 4 – cause that’s just bananas.  But I wouldn’t pass it up.. I’ll say that much!


Then I was asked to come up with 11 questions created by my own curiosity for the 11 nominees of my choosing. Here are my 11 questions in no particular order:

  1. What makes you smile?

  5. How many emails would you say you send a day?
  6. Do you use emoticons (◕‿◕)
  7. How do you relax?
  8. Do you enjoy cooking?
  9. Will you cook for me? JOKE! Favorite dessert?
  10. Favorite movie?
  11. What has been your favorite posting since you’ve been a blogger?

Thank You, Brenda

Okay, I am still pretty new to blogging, and I have recently been gifted two awards from the lovely Brenda over at http://friendlyfairytales.com/

I hope I’m doing this right.  And sorry, I have taken so long to display the awards. I had some unforseen circumstances pop up, and I wanted

to give this my full attention.

The two awards are:


The Liebster Award


I think I’m also supposed to answer a few questions I found on Brenda’s site.

so here goes…..

1. What makes you smile? God, My family, My friends, My dogs, and ice cream

2. What makes you sad? Homeless pets

3. What motivates you? ice cream:)

4. How would you describe your personality? Easy going, sometimes shy

5. What do you least enjoy doing in life? Taking my car to the body shop:(
6. What is your favorite song? I have plenty, but I guess I’ll name just one: Demons, by Imagine Dragons
7. What is your favorite quote and why? I don’t usually retain quotes so I’m going to quote a movie line: And now we are Free. I will see you again… but not yet… Not yet! It’s from Gladiator, and I like it because it speaks of the afterlife.
8. How do you relax? Writing, hiking with my camera or watching a good movie
9. What is your favorite food? Ice cream:)
10. Why do you blog? I love to write and I love the WordPress community


So thank you, Brenda, for thinking of me. I enjoy your fairytales, poetry, pics, and the new videos you have begun posting.  Hope to see many more:)

For Me

Yay! I won this awesome painting today.

For me

Meet the talented artist, Agata Lawrynczyk….


I promise to give your artwork a loving home, Agata!


While driving home yesterday, I spotted this little guy thumbing a lift.

Turtle 001-1

An avid animal lover/creature well-wisher, I couldn’t say no. Initially, my introverted passenger rested quietly on his, or her, side of the car, but that didn’t last long as he became a little too comfortable around 60 mph – leaving me no choice but to hold onto the little guy for the rest of the drive. Thankfully, he was accepting of my proposal, and we made it safely, without incident, to a quaint little pond. 

Turtle 009-1

Don’t worry. I didn’t just toss him; he could swim – I made sure:)
