Big Smile, one of my favorite bloggers in this whole big blog universe has graciously bestowed on me The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and I couldn’t be more pleased.  It always feels good to be included especially in this sisterhood of the traveling award.  Thank you so much Big Smile!   🙂

Big Smile’s superb blog Grandmother Musings is jammed packed full of useful and practical advice. I enjoy reading her interesting posts and it is always nice to see a new post from her in my inbox.  Defeat a bad attitude and Helen’s Porch have been two of my recent favorites.

It is at this point I must share SEVEN mostly true facts about me that many of you may not know. obviously this will be endlessly fascinating…obviously I’m kidding, please bear with me as I go on a seven-figure narcissistic tirade…

1. I am a shy, mild-mannered chicken in real life, not the loudmouth I portray online. (Shocking I know)

2. I have an uncanny ability to locate lost items in an almost paranormal sort of way.

3. I find it difficult to make any kind of decision at all while wearing a hat.

4. I am only 5 ft. 2″ but I am very good at standing on my tiptoes.

5. I am an ugly baker; everything I bake tastes good but it never looks good.

6. My lucky number is 13 probably because I was born on that day.

7. I invented the internet, post-it notes and sliced bread… and I am an awful liar.

 I would like to nominate my fellow sister bloggers for this sisterly award.

Drumroll please…

Oh what a lovely award

There are events unique to this wonderful blogosphere in which we all have been adventuring: The giving and receiving of blog awards. Besides being a networking event, the blog awards showcase blogs that haven’t been around as long as some others but merit recognition and attention.

I have been doing some tag surfing as of late; darting here and there. I go for what interests me and delve right in. This is fun stuff for me; every site I visit is like walking into another’s mini universe. Each is as varied as the people, the writers behind them, not only showing diversity of lifestyles and opinion,but bringing to the forefront of what really matters; the fact that we are in actuality more alike than we sometimes believe.  Behind each one is a person or persons reaching out into the world; making connections, sharing ideas and hopes and dreams or maybe just a laugh.  What has impressed me the most is the talent, the raw talent that is out there, the honesty and the hopefulness; the beauty of humanity crying out to be heard in a seemingly infinite sea of information.

Recently I received a lovely award from a lovely person; Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko. This is such a lovely award is it is called “The One Lovely Blog Award”

Angi’s blog:  A Kiss of Bliss is one of those gems that I stumbled upon one night.  Check it out for quality writing on interesting and positive subjects.

I would like to thank Angi for the award. I appreciate the recognition. It is nice to receive it.  It’s even better to pass it on.

Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award.

 1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

 2. Pass the award to other newly discovered blogs.

 3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

What follows are some prime examples of stumbling upon other gems.

I nominate the following blogs for the One Lovely Blog Award


Sparkyleegeek’s blog:  Sparky Lee is an imaginative and talented writer. Reading this blog is like going to the amusement park. Fast paced and fun.

Words and Herbs:  Cathy lives in a beautiful part of the world and it is obvious from her photos.  Great writing on herbs and nature in general with some tasty recipes.

Finding My Worth: Realizing a Woman’s Worth.  Positive and inspiring pieces not just for women but for everyone.

More Zen Now:  If you need a laugh, go to this site.  Witty and intelligently funny. A great find.

I highly recommend these blogs to anyone looking for a quality read.

Have an excellent day!
