    Hi Wi. I just love reading your inspirational words of wisdom so I have nominated you for three blogging awards. I hope you accept if not I understand. It is a lot to do but it is a good way to join the WP community. Happy holidays!

    Maybe it is time to personalize this page too!

  6. Only just read your about page, and we’ve been blog friends for so long. Now I know where your name ‘Lola’ comes from. šŸ™‚

      Everybody calls me ‘LolaWi’ and have been always referred to as ‘Lola’ since our grandson was born šŸ™‚ It is music to my ears! Happy to see you here, Sylvia! šŸ™‚

  7. Hi Lola – Sylvia from Another Day in Paradise sent me your link since she confused me twice with you and left a comment calling me “Lola” šŸ™‚ So I asked about you and here I am! Wow – it looks like we share a lot in common: the nature images you post, the things that are dear to you. I looked at the food on one of your posts and realized that I had something cooking on the stove (for a while, since I got distracted by blogs) and got up just in time to prevent burns! Glad I came over. Annette

      Hello Lola Jane, thank you for your kind words and welcome to simply beautiful. I love your Favorite Children’s Books’ posts. i see familiar books that i’ve read to my apo and am smiling while reading your story about the frog sound. i taught my grandson the ‘ko-kak’ sound too until he learned later the ‘ribbit’ sound which he went on to say, “lola your frog cannot speak english huh?” šŸ™‚
