While living as I do, ‘flying by the seat of my pants,’
going to the library and pretending to be a ‘good’ fellow
blogger, I miss things. Details. Lots of times I miss some
of your great posts, wonderful adventures and really need…
More Time in the Day!
I actually write my posts at home, run to the library after
work, post a story or article, then read my comments, and
once in a great while, check out my emails.
Last weekend, I had 500 blogs to read and over 1000 emails.
This is how my past weekend went…
I managed to go to my oldest daughter’s home, with a trio
of star glazed donuts with sprinkles, a special card and
an enclosure of cash for her 34th birthday. The donuts
were eaten by the ‘birthday girl,’ her 5 year old son,
Micah and her partner, Michael. I felt like that was a great,
but too short visit. I headed to the library where I was
able to post a story, read about 25-30 posts, checking on my
comments on my posts, responded and no emails checked.
Then, on last Sunday, I had that ‘epic’ and exciting trip
to the Palace Theater to see “Sesame Street Live!” show.
I managed to write about that for April Fool’s Day…
You can see me, in any situation, trying to ‘talk myself
out of the ticket, Mr. Policeman, sir!’
In amongst the posts you are writing, the comments you are
saying, I really care and try to stay connected!
If only you lived in walking distance, had time to share a
cup of coffee, and be part of my neighborhood landscape.
We do the best that we can, in our busy lives we lead!
I missed on March 26, 2014, this very fine award nomination
from Anne T. Bell. It was for “Being a Light of the World”
Award! Thank you very much, Anne!
You may find her at:
I am so sorry about missing this award and really would like
you to encourage you to read this retired teacher’s stories
about her travels, experiences and she truly does shine a
bright and friendly Light into the World!!
Another special friend, Jane, who sometimes I call Janey,
is one I have passed on an award to, once along her blogging
career. You may be checking her out since I recommended her!
Jane nominated my for a “Quintet of Radiance” Award! Wow!
I loved the fact that she really followed the rules to a “T!”
She made me very proud to know her and I feel you will be
smiling, chuckling and learning some really ‘quirky’ things
about Jane when you check out:
The awards in her Quintet were for the Most Influential Blogger
Award, The ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award, The Inner Peace
Award, The Sunshine Award and The Versatile Blogger Award!
I hope it is okay to tell you that it was passed to me,
without the fifth award (The Versatile Blogger Award) but I am
sure that it was not meant to be a Quartet!
“Sh-h-h!!” this was how it was given to me, missing the fifth.
I received two awards on an old friend of mine’s blog. We have
been connected for longer than most of my regular commenters,
here is a great fellow blogger who writes short but very deep,
interesting posts! He gave me the One Lovely Blog Award and
the Beautiful Blogger Award.
I would like to offer these suggestions for people to read
and enjoy their stories, poems, art and photographs. I am
nominating this list of fellow bloggers any or all of the
above Awards! I was very honored by these and hope you will
also, feel honored. As I feel that my true and faithful
friends will understand, these are relatively new followers
and readers of my blog. I like to encourage new gifts to
these, in the form of choosing to nominate them for the
multiple (Eight!) awards!
Congratulations to the Dozen nominees!
I hope you receive some visits from my readers and friends
here in my neighborhood.
Please check out the three people’s posts where they nominated
me, for the rules. I hope that you will accept these honors and
will be happy to read your suggested nominees, as you pass the
