Awards


It is a great honour to receive an award for blogging from fellow bloggers.I love reading all my favourite blogs as often as I can and would love to award each and every one of you because you have all given me such enjoyment and friendship from all over the world. I have learned of customs and crafts and seen beautiful photos of neighbourhoods I would never have known about. Passing on awards and tags is time consuming especially if you are as slow as me!I know many of you have opted out of passing these on for the same reason so as the new gardening and growing season will be starting soon as of now this will also be an award and tag free zone.

My blog has received this award from Lynda on foodfunfarm in East Africa. Thanks Lynda, as I know you keep up with lots of blogs all over the world ,so to be singled out for one by you is a great honour. Lynda writes daily on farm life and shares some delicious recipes, I know as I have tried a few of them!

The following explains what this particular award is about;

“This blog invests and believes the proximity - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are extremely charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award.

When you get your first award it is always a thrill as you know someone out there is taking time to read what you write ( or ramble on about as I do)!
Time constraints do not allow me to single out 8 blogs so I am passing it on to 3 fairly new blogs which I enjoy catching up on.

Clara (US)for her charming and uplifting blog in living life to the full and finding something beautiful in each day

Tracy (US)making a life and home on 3 acres, where everything is a DIY challenge to overcome

Fiona (Tasmania) A blog on family friends and crafting

Peggy, I'm delighted to discover your blog (through Botanical). That award is obviously well deserved. Looking forward to reading about your adventures in the days ahead. (good luck with the nasty little visitors)

Oh my goodness Peggy, thank you so much. It is so cool to get an award. Can you tell me how to show it on my blog??

Peggy,I know exactly what you mean about the awards/tags being quite time consuming. I have debated for a while now how to go about asking people in a nice way if they'd mind not passing them on to me. It's a tricky one because whilst you don't want to offend those who passed them on, you want to be honest & say that they take up a lot of time & that you'd prefer not to have them. I also know that people reading my/your/other blogs would far rather read blog posts about things other than awards, so after seeing the nice way you worded your award post today, you have encouraged me to perhaps take the plunge and do the same, & hopefully I won't offend any of my readers ;) Have a lovely weeekend ! P.S. Love your new header photo - I can tell it was taken in Summer as you all look hot & summery :)

Thanks Peggy for my award! When everything gets settled here and all the sick is better, I will pass it along! You are so kind!

Hello Peggy.
Thanks for your visit and comment.
Tonight, I read a good part of your previous posts. Great job you´re doing and wonderful vegs too.
Now I know where to look for more agriculture tips :) It´s also nice to see the different stages and progress.
I wish I could do the same but, currently, I can´t. My plot is 8km from my flat and I don´t even have water there. In the next years, I´ll be working for that.

Congrats for the award!
I´ve been debating with the same issue, to post or not to post awards. One thing is sure, I do appreciate when I get one, so I guess others feel the same. To me, a blog with awards means that blogger is involved and socializing with other bloggers, the best part of tags and awards.
A good Weekend!
