One Lovely Blog

with 14 comments


This will be a different kind of post!

I have been nominated for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’.

Thanks very much to ‘sunontiepost’ at  www.sunontiepost.wordpress.com for nominating me for this award!  Sunontiepost, aka ‘choosing words to choose worlds’, writes direct, hard-hitting poetry about many things, but often about dealing with the complications of diabetes.

I would like to nominate the following very nicely presented blogs, by some very talented people, for this award.  I hope you visit them and enjoy their posts as much as I do:

Seven possibly unknown things about me:

  1. I am very messy but extremely well organized…is this even possible?
  2. My earliest memory is of my Mom teaching me ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”
  3. One of my favorite possessions is a little carved wooden cat, given to me by my son.
  4. My favorite poets are Seamus Heaney, Robert Frost, and Sara Teasdale.
  5. My favorite color is green.. oh and purple…no, red…except for orange, my absolute favorite… and then there is blue…..
  6. The first movie I ever saw was ‘Tarzan’ with my Dad (Tarzan the Ape Man, 1959).
  7. My best friends are my husband, my sister and my son, as well as my two brothers, and all my sister- and brother-in-laws, not in any particular order.  Also my nieces and nephews.  Also all the friends who are not related to me.  I have really got myself into trouble with this item #7.

The Rules of Acceptance:

  1. Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post:
  2. Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
  3. Nominate fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
  4. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them

Thank you so much to all the blogs mentioned above for making my life more and more interesting.     Jane

  4. I too am extremely messy but extremely well organized… but I’m finding as the years start to take their toll I will have to become less messy if I want to remain as well organized since so much accumulates along the way.

    • Hi. I try to reduce a little all the time. We are lucky to have a program called Community Living that takes whatever items we don’t need. It makes me feel like they are going to a good home. Jane

  5. Thank you so much, Jane for recommending my blog. I’m sorry I can’t post this award on my blog as it’s dedicated to the poets whose work has been so generously donated to this trial of mine. I started it so that there would be a permanent record of their haiku and to enter into discussions about haiku for better understanding of the art and its poetics. I am delighted you enjoy it. I’m quite surprised it has received the reception that it has…

    Your blog is truly a marvelous record of information that really would be difficult to find anywhere else.
