One Lovely Blog Award :)

It feels so good to receive an award, even more so are the little friendships blossoming with my regular followers. I don’t have much pc time and even less me time which is why my blogging and interaction with my followers is not consistent. But when I finally get into my own head space with a pc in front of me and a good cuppa coffee . . . I read, comment and write. It’s another world – a fantastic one at that. Thank you to all my readers and followers for sharing your life’s journey past and present with me, I appreciate your sharing.

I have been nominated for this lovely award by a fellow blogger denobears, reading Eleenie’s blog often leaves me with a smile on my face as I can actually picture Eleenie doing what she blogs about. In the garden, her dogs, road trips, little creatures that visit etc. I always know when I click on her link there is always something entertaining to read. Thank you again Eleenie for sharing your journey and nominating me for this lovely award.

In accepting this award I should

1. Thank the person who nominated me and link back to them in my post.

2. Share 7 things about myself.

3. Nominate 10 bloggers that I admire.

4. Leave a comment advising them of their nomination.

Let’s See – Seven things about me:

7. Autumn is my favourite season.

6. I always burn rice so my hubby cooks it.

5. I talk to people on the subway (when on a subway)

4. I am happiest when surrounded by nature.

3. I dance and sing using the mop as my mic when cleaning the house. My son has secretly filmed me and threatens to post such clips on YouTube – I will die if he ever does that.

Wow, My First Award.


I haven’t been blogging very long and at times think I ‘talk’ to myself. I wasn’t sure how to even go about finding blogs of others with similar interest. Click here there and keep clicking until you find that read. I began receiving a few ‘like’ on this or that post. What someone even read what I had written. Indeed it was so. I began clicking on my ‘like’ readers and found something somewhere along the line of an interest we shared. To top that, wow – some bloggers whom I find captivating. I said to my hubby the other night in conversation, ‘Who needs books when I have so many interesting blogs to read of real people with real stories sharing real events and history.’ I was thrilled to receive my first award – The Readers Appreciation Award from my fellow blog reader notsofancynancy. I really can’t do Nancy justice in telling you just what an amazing blog she writes. Nancy’s story is captivating with her fathers WWII letters. Moments in time caught on paper with such history. Take a moment and click on notsofancynancy and you will be sure to want to read more and more. Thank you notsofancynancy for nominating me as your choice for a Readers Appreciation Award, you made my month.
