Liebster Award



  Good afternoon! Today I would like to thank sweet Rebekah of Calico Sisters for giving me the Liebster Award. This award, named for the German word for "darling", seems to circulate through the blogosphere with alacrity. It must show how many encouraging gals there are out there! :)

Answering Rebekah's Questions

1) Have you ever watched Downton Abbey? If so, how would you rate it from 1 to 10? Get ready for a complex answer. :P I've seen a deal of the third and fourth season, but only bits of the earlier seasons. Though I think the actors are talented and the costumes are great, I think I would only give it a 5 out of 10, because I'm not a fan of some of the scenarios in the series.
2) How long have you been blogging? I've been blogging just over ten months. :)
3) What is the long term goal for your blog? Good question! I believe my long-term for Sunday Best is to encourage young ladies to dress with both good style and modesty, in honor to the Lord.
4) Have you ever set off a firework? Nope.
5) What kind of weather is there where you live? [i.e. tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes...] Our climate is temperate, and fairly moist. We used to get a deal of rain, but have had a drought for the past couple of years. Earthquakes are somewhat frequent compared to most of the country, however.
6) Would you rather ride [a horse] or walk? It depends. It depends. Not being an avid rider, walking would be easiest for me to get somewhere, but if I had time for an amble, riding a horse would be fun! :D
7) Have you ever been on a mission trip? If so, where to and why? No, I haven't. I view being a counselor at Christian camp as a sort of mission trip though. :) 
8) What version of the Bible do you prefer? [i.e. KJV, NIV, the Message] I read in KJV, and like it's poetic language, but by no means think it is the only good translation.
 9) If you could have a certain amount of land for free, how much would you want and what kind terrain would it be? [i.e. 100 acres of pastureland, forrest, beach, etc.] Hmm...I think I would want a few (maybe ten? I'm bad with measurements) acres of Pacific northwest land with beach and forest on it.
 10) What is your last name and what does it mean? Walters. It is apparently from the Germanic name "Waldhar". This was derived from the words "wasl" or "wald" (depending on the source), meaning "rule", and "hari" or "heri", meaning  "army" or "warrior". The name came to England during the Norman Conquest. Pretty cool, eh?;)
11) Do you have a paying job? I currently get paid for two cleaning jobs and a babysitting job. :)

11 Facts about me:

1. I just got my driver's license! :D  2. But I still have a lot of driving skills to work on.
3. I've lived in three different homes, all within the same town. 4. I used to want an older sibling. 5. I can't eat when my hands are dry...I have to put lotion on...weird but true. 6. I've inherited my Dad's talent for making up nicknames. The majority of these are bequeathed on the dog. 7. I don't really like most vegetables. 8. I've been in four U.S. states. 9. I've visited the Grand Canyon and Yosemite Nat'l Park. 10. I start a lot of studies of the Bible that I don't finish, evidenced in my journals. 11. I like Kettle chips.
