Awards that I May Not Deserve!

Standard

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.

Yikes!!

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:

http://cupidorcats.wordpress.com

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.

http://belsbro.wordpress.com

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

awards around!

A “High Five” to You All!

Standard

I am amazed and struck silent with awe! I was within a short

period of time, given five award nominations! Wow! I will call

this my “Lucky Five” and wish to pass a Big “High Five” to all

of you readers of my lengthy essays on life and relationships,

in the areas of work and play.

I was given Four Nominations by a special, new “best friend,”

named Julie! She has a wonderful blog which is full of varied

stories and fun looks at life. Her outlook matches mine, with

humor and positive insights given.

http://musingsfromaworkaholic.com

Julie has nominated me to four special awards!

I may take them all and run with them! The Inner Peace Award,

The ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award, the Most Influential

Blogger Award and the Sunshine Award were all nominated to me.

In addition to the above named four nominations, I received

a nomination for another award. That makes a total of Five!

Mark, you tricky man, you are getting me to post about your

blog again! I appreciated the nomination for the Dragon’s

Loyalty Award. In accepting this, you know, I may be a

lawless individual. Out here in the “real world,” I am

a true, trustworthy and law-abiding individual.

I hope you will check out Mark’s blog about sports,

entertainment, walks with Ellie B. and more at:

http://markbialczak.wordpress.com

I would like to announce some worthy bloggers who have,

as far as my memory serves, not received nominations here

before. I know you will enjoy checking out these “new”

blogs!

I apologize for not wishing to give you any more sordid

details of my life. The others who receive awards, do

such respectable posts accepting their nominations!

You really should read my early posts, where I divulged

and ‘bared all’~ if you want to know more about me! I

hope you will check out Mark’s and Jules’ posts for their

fine examples of how to follow Award Nomination Rules!

1. Linda, you are really wonderful!

http://naturerestoresme.wordpress.com

2. K, you have awesome photography here!

http://artourway.com

3. With her kitchen wide open, some lovely children

and special thoughts shared here:

http://shannaward.com

4. Wacky family insights here, a recent sickness

and thoughts about differences in male and female

roles in families…

5. Jill has been catching up with me, a new

friend and although she is younger, many of

our memories are overlapping! She belongs in my

‘sisterhood club’ but have not been recently

nominated for that esteemed award!

http://jillweatherholt.wordpress.com

6. A man who has a lot of deep essays. I liked

Teddy Lee’s post, “Creating Your Own Fate.”

http://teddylee01.wordpress.com

7. She ‘had me’ when she talked about frontier

women, then there is the “Holler” and her recent post,

“Wilderness Gardens” is a place of renewal and beauty.

http://cindyknoke.com

8. Heartafire is an honest and outgoing writer

who will get you thinking or smiling! Awhile

back, she wrote about her father’s mother,

it was a true portrait of a spunky woman with

good cooking skills!

http://shakeyourtailfeathers.wordpress.com

9. More lovely photos, from a newcomer to my blog,

Prasun Dutta at:

http://prasundutta.com

10. She has photos and fun comments. She gives us

much to think about, too.

http://clover58.wordpress.com

11. Alex has some different thoughts to share with

us along our walk in life.

http://alexraphael.wordpress.com

I have a few others who are great and new friends who I

could ‘throw into the mix,’ but what if another award

nomination comes up? Who will I have to put into that

post? Everyone who is following and faithfully reading

my posts, again…

I salute you,

I give you a “High Five!”

I wave my five fingers to you

and say,

“Farewell for now!”

Another One Bit the Dust! (or 2)!

Standard

I have a serious memory lapse at times or two times, to be exact!

I promised that once back from vacation, I would address the

awards that I was nominated for and given to me.

Here I am, asking for forgiveness! There were two more people who

also awarded me while I was gone, once back I recently wrote my

simple acceptance post, but Alas! I missed two friends and fellow

bloggers who put me on their lists. They both cared enough to stop

by to view my posts and join my friendly followers!

Thank you very much to:

http://ajaytao2010.wordpress.com

This honorable, humble man is fighting cancer, has a tough walk

every day through this pain and knowing that might not be a long one.

Please check out his blog which has a wide variety of lovely quotes and

writings. I chose from his big bouquet of  27 awards.

I liked the “Shine On Award” and “The Loyal Readers’ Award!”

Another “forgotten” but much appreciate blogger, Samina can be found at:

http://saminaiqbal27.wordpress.com

Samina’s blog is an open forum for the voices of citizens and police officers.

She awarded me the Inner Peace Award along with a bouquet of super

awards.

Samina’s quote page resonates for me, it is meaningful during this current

stressful times:

“I can wait my lifetime and be selfless and giving for it has its own worth,

if my cause is just and honorable.”

Please check out these unique and interesting blogs that I have been blessed

to become part of my reading material and find supportive comments from.

Awards: falling behind on the wayside

Standard

I have a few awards that have been given to me this July, 2013!

Bullying Prevention gave me an award as I set off on vacation.

He nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Thanks so much!

Please check out his very informative and sensitive blog that brings out

injustices in the workplace, schools and in the world due to bullying.

Bullying Prevention is located at:

I received a Bouquet of Awards from someone who is so caring and

such a great commenter and follower. This blog features poetry, along

with thoughts and feelings. Through reading this blog, you would

receive a great feeling and lots of smiles from Noshiko:

http://zyoshiko.wordpress.com

I would like to have the Inner Peace Award but may not end up posting

any photos/clip art pictures of this award. It has a beautiful dove perched

on the open palm of a hand.

I may not even pass this wonderful gift of a bouquet of awards on. I have

become overwhelmed with my responsibilities and maybe, a little bit of

summer laziness has set in, also!

I will cherish each and every person who visits, follows or shares with

me their thoughts and blogs. I enjoy reading so many of the blogs that

are out there! This could be a full time job position…

Take care,

Robin
