One Lovely Blog Award

This was SO hard! :) See the smiley? It wasn't easy, no, but it's a nice duty - to tell some people around here that you like what they're writing.

You are supposed to give this award to up to to fifteen bloggers. I came up with eight.

First, I want to tell those whom I awarded with the "When Life Hands You Lemons Blog Award" that I haven't changed my mind. I still like you guys, just don't want to repeat myself.

Then I tried to listen to Auntie, and yes, Auntie, I love your blog, just don't want to bother you with another award you've just received. Well earned!I have the same "problem" with Comedy Goddess and Phat Mama... I can't give it to that Woman of a Certain Age, can I - she's the one who gave it to me... well...

I looked through the comments I get to my inbox and chose some. I also clicked that "next blog" thing at the top of the page to find some new (as it's supposed to introduce the not so known ones). And there is someone I read all the time and a person very special to me (I hope I can do that?)

Sunny's blog IS lovely. See for yourself. Every post is a story.

Then there is that house, not really solid, as it's Slightly Cracked, but lovely.

Of course, I like my side of the story, but I also like hers. Lovely!

Jocelyn makes a crisis lovely...

The world according to this person also sounds interesting and lovely.

This young girl is all excited about her ability to write and I think she should be, too! I have just found out I cannot let her know. No comments on her blog. No e-mail. I still think her blog is lovely, though. At 6 p.m. I finally found a way... Yaay!

Read the tale for yourself. Lovely, isn't it?

And this girl is the special person I mentioned above. I hope you don't mind. And if you do, just ignore the fact that these words are here.
I'm not giving it to her only because she is my little one (the oldest of two, actually), but because I really like the way she writes. And I've seen more than you can see here - this is not her fist blog.

The rules are simple:

You have to choose up to fifteen bloggers to introduce some new blogs to your readers. If you think they're lovely.

Make a list on your blog.

Notify the awarded writers in the comment under their post.



  1. As thanks! I am so bad with awards. Today if I have time I will create a new page for awards. But I appreciate them!

  2. Minka, I could not find an email address for you. Would you please contact me at candidcarrie at gmail dot com? Nothing scary, I promise. I just want to say thank you.

  3. Thanks so much for this wonerful award! I am thrilled... Now please know that I am slow on the uptake with these things, and that it's no reflection on my appreciation of the award.

    Now with that said, I am off to wander around your blog and read some of your lovely posts!

  4. Congratulations on your award! Hope you're having a lovely May!

  5. Thank you! Yes, my may is lovely, but busy - it always is when you work at school.

    I hope yours is lovely, too!

  6. hi minka! thank you for the award. i'm so happy! i really appreciate it.=) your blog is lovely too. =)

  7. Thanks! And you're welcome!

  8. OK, now I have to go and find out who all these people are, you so aptly made sure not to mention them, perhasp they are on my list and perhaps not, either way, it's all good!

    By the way, I love how your blog is a different color every time I come in, it's really cool to see!

  9. I usually change it when I write a new post. I like change. And I like colours. And I like it when other people like it, too... :))

  10. Alright! The award will go on my blog tomorrow with my regular post :) Thanks again for thinking of me! You are very sweet!

  11. Kathy B, you have no idea! My WHOLE KITCHEN is sweet! I've just finished my first "round" of elderberry syrup making. Spilled a little (really just a little), but I was also clumsy when I was adding sugar and now there's some on the stove. I'll go and clean it now.

    I'm glad you like the award. And you deserve it.
