Lovely – More Awards!

The versatileblogger award

More awards!   The first one is a Lovely Blog Award!   My thanks go out to Mary Ann at My Pen and Me for her nomination.  Mary Ann is a poet, photographer and doodler!  Check out her blog for something eclectic to add to your day!  Another Versatile Blogger came from Duko at Duko Photoblog.  Duko is an engineer from Zagreb, Croatia, and posts wonderful photos!

The Reader Appreciation Award and the One Lovely Blog Award came from Holly Michael at Writing Straight. Holly is a freelance writer, author, book reviewer, and all-around wordsmith whose blog I have been bouncing over to check out happily for a while now.  Bounce over for a peek yourself!

The Rules of Acceptance:

  1. Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post:
  2. Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
  3. Nominate  bloggers you admire.
  4. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them

So – if I keep sharing things about myself there won’t be any mystery left!  What more can I say?  I LOVE the flavour of dill.  I love to curl up with a good book and shut out the world once in a while.  I like to go quadding with my family along a nearby creek.  I have a grand piano – pretty blessed, huh?  I got to go to Europe last fall for the first time and LOVED it! (My favorite stop was Croatia – for Duko’s sake! )  🙂 I don’t understand where one sock from every pair disappears to regularly – socky heaven?  My publisher says that I will have my ‘author copy’ of my first book within 2 weeks!  Yahoo!

Here are some of the blogs I like:

Michelle at A Touch of the Divine posts lovely photos.  Plus, she’s a fellow Canadian!  🙂

Aisling Jennings Photography Creative shots of beautiful things!

Jump for Joy Photo Project – a great pic of people in mid-air joy from all over the world.  Just a smile for the day! 🙂

Coffee, God, and Gardening ‘AKA Teacher’ posts inspirational, down-to-earth struggle kind of stuff.  And she’s a fellow garden maniac.  You gotta love that.

A Nature Mom  Beautiful pics and great ideas on how to hook your kids on enjoying the great outdoors!

To my nominees: you get to pick whichever Award on this page that you want!  🙂  Some of you already have many; add the one you are craving most to your collection.  Some of you may not go in for all the award hoopla – that’s okay, too.  Just enjoy the fact that I enjoy your work, and get a few extra readers floating in from my links in appreciation!

An Unexpected Bloom!


I got another award!  This one is from Rodposse.  I have been enjoying the photography on this blog, so I am honoured by their nomination!  It means a lot to know that what I write to process what I am learning in my life is being read and appreciated by people from around the world.  That is very humbling indeed.

Here are some more blogs that I like:

Clay Baboons Hilrious stories illustrated in clay.  Stephanie hasn’t written a lot lately but there are tons of stories to chose from in her archives – and maybe an award will encourage her to do some more!

Moms are from Mars  If you need a laugh, check out this creative blog!

Seventh Voice  Some poetry, some writings about dealing with autism and asperger’s – some good information and discussion.
