Big Thank You…!

So many wonderful awards this past month from some delightful people – Please enjoy them with me…!


The Illuminating Blogger – awarded by Terry1954

Illuminating Blogger Award
Awarded by Terry1954

Terry is currently living with Al (her brother) who has Parkinson’s Disease. At times harrowing, at other times touching; Terry’s blog is always inspirational. I have learned so very much about the disease, and the strengths of those who care. Terry also posts her poetry and other tender writings. Thank You Terry; I love popping over to see what is happening in your world….  🙂

Terry didn’t stipulate any rules except, of course, to thank the one who nominated you.


I’d like to pass the award on to –

One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award
Awarded by Soph

A Bit About Soph

All things interesting

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Here is a little read from Soph’s blog….. For safety reasons, I’m only known as Soph on my blog, and I’m 15 this year. All I’ll say about where I live is that I live on Earth. Good thing I’m not from Mars, although the economy and state of environment is better over there. Might be a bit lonely on Mars too, and I don’t think I’d be able to live without human company. It’s not that I’m constantly in need of company, it’s because sociology and psychology intrigues me, along with philosophy, history, literature, and well, cars. So there we go, a little bit about me.

THANK YOU SOPH – I am so very touched by this award..

And the rules are –

1. Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share 7 things about yourself. (If you so desire.)

3. Nominate 15 bloggers. (Or how many you’d like.)

4. Notify the nominees that you have done so.

5. Put the logo of the award on your blog if you so desire. (Up to you, of course.)

My 7 things are: I love life – I enjoy eggs and spinach for breakfast – One of my favourite things to do is dance (you knew that already, I’m sure) – My partner K is cute – I am a bookkeeper – a counselor – a Jill of all trades.

That’s 7  – Phew; running out of things to say!

I’d like to pass the award on to someone I’ve recently met whose blog inspires me –

Micheline Walker’s Blog


I have a handful more responses to do, which I shall get to soon…  Thank You to all who share a little bit of themselves with me…  Your likes and comments I love…!  🙂


  1. Thank you dear Carolyn! Although, I will be talking a bit of time to pick this up. Not only am I busy a a hive of bees, but my mom is in the hospital.She is very ill. I’m waiting on test results. I did up a funny post on the corner store this weekend, but when the call about my mom came I didn’t feel so funny any more, so didn’t post it. I know my funny will come back. – Resa xo

    1. Keep me up to date, please…. This is but a little bit of fluff in the life of a blogger. Your mom is one very special lady to you, and rightly so, is your first priority. Arms reaching out across water to give you a big hug….. xoxoxo

    1. No, my dear Sharmishtha… I haven’t been inspired to as yet! I will though; just you wait and see…. Thank You; you make me smile…. 🙂 Enjoy your little break…!

  2. You’re very welcome my dear sweet Carol and congratulations for having all these awards 🙂
    You deserved all of them… one week more to go, my holiday would be over… hahaha back to work again 😦
    I miss you! Hugs and kisses xoxo

    1. Oh, Jess; I certainly have…!
      I’m about to ‘catch up’ with a number that are sitting on the shelf waiting for me to honour them. Your ‘Super Sweet Blogging Award’ is one of those to be recognised…
      Thank You so much for that one; it really is ‘sweet’… xoxoxo

    1. Thank You, Meenakshi… 🙂
      I always seem to be smiling when I go to your blog, or when you visit mine… Must mean you are a sincere, sweet individual; to be sure..
      It’s lovely to communicate with you.. 🙂
