"kreativ blogger" award

I have received my first blogging 'award' from Lora- how exciting!

It comes with the following instructions:

  1. Post the award on your blog, and link to the person who gave you the award.
  2. List seven things you love.
  3. List seven blogs you love.
  4. E-mail or comment on those blogs to let the people know you've given them the award.

Here goes...

Seven things I love:

  1. Learning about God and getting to know him better
  2. Relaxing with Andy
  3. Spending time with friends and family
  4. Taking photographs
  5. Nature and wildlife watching
  6. Making things (e.g. cards, scrapbook pages...)
  7. Colours - I love colours in our garden and the natural world (see #5) and capturing them on camera (see #4), and I love colourful papers to use in crafting (see #6). I love it that our world is so full of various colours - it's wonderful.

Seven blogs I love:

This one is quite difficult. I love more than 7 blogs! But I will select those who I think will appreciate having an award, and also have a 'kreativ' aspect!

  1. Lynn over at help I work with children. I reckon you need quite a bit of creative thinking to be a children's and family pastor!

  2. Brunette Koala over at Learning from Sophie. Currently promoting 'The Art of Joy' with random acts of kindness, among other things. Check out her blog for more details.

  3. Bring on the Joy - last I looked, she wasn't feeling very well. Hope you feel better soon, BOTJ!

  4. This one goes to Art in the Wind - thoughtful musings from a fellow rabbit owner!

  5. The entire "bunyard" at Furrybutts. Gorgeous rabbits, lovely photographs.

  6. Artistic Abigail over at the newly named Rear Window: Observations of 32nd Street. Great new blog design, too!

  7. Last but not least, AngelJoy over at Hippychick. She has a beautiful blog.


It's Andy's birthday this week and his parents are coming to see us this weekend, so am getting guest room ready. Feel absurdly excited at the first use of our new guest towels (!) So I may not be posting much until next week.

Garden drama - the increasingly resident goldfinch pair were very indignant this morning at the arrival of a third - went into frenzied pursuit.

Today: 4/10, medium - high

Ooh, congratulations on the award and many thanks for passing it on to us!!

Wish Andy a Happy Birthday from all of us here :) Have a great time celebrating with your in-laws!!

Tricia said...

RYC: Thanks! And yes, your reasoning was correct. I appreciate it. :-)

I think 'what have you' is more of a British thing, but I grew up as something of an Anglophile, so certain phrases crept into my less sophisticated Yankee vocabulary. lol!

Thank you so much!!
And congratulations to you!
Happy Birthday to Andy
and hello to Charlie. :)

Lora said...

wow, I have new blogs to check out this week--I don't think any of your 7 are familiar to me!

Well done - and thank you too!

When is Andy's birthday? (man soooo many people have birthdays this week - ha ha)

Happy birthday to him anyways.

And thank you. Eating my tea, but will do some awarding in the next couple of hours!!

Congratulations on the award. I'd also like to thank you for awarding my blog as well. And hug any bunnies you might know.

Thanks so much Lucy!!! :) I know I get way too excited about these things, but I absolutely love getting awards! ha. Oh, and I love color too. My mom would tell you, I am a glutton for color! I especially like it when mixed with pure black and white. The contrast is incredible.

Ouch...your Wednesday Walk post made me feel so sorry for you! :( A few years ago, I fell on my sidewalk and got a HUGE tear in my arm. It wouldn't dry up at all for about a week and a half, and then when it finally did, it killed me every time I accidentally brushed it against anything. It was horrible, so I can't even imagine having an injury as bad as the one you mentioned! You poor thing! :(

Well, I hope you're having a great week! Thanks again for the award!
