Kindness Repaid

Once upon a time when I started this blog a fellow blogger named Silverbells nominated me for an award. I was touched and flattered. I thanked her and then … promptly had a massive brain fart.

To make amends, I shall proudly post this award and do now what I should have done months ago. For people who are more clued in than I was (that’s pretty much anybody with a pulse), here are the rules of the road:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your website
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.


The Winners (In No Particular Order):

  1. Silverbells Steps Out:  She set an example for me because she has been more conscientious and consistent about blogging than I have been, and I envy this (in a good way).
  2. Leanne Cole Photography:    Amazing images. Tips and suggestions. Support for those of us who still think of our work as “snapshots” but aspire to something more.
  3. Angie and James Do Stuff:  Travel. Recipes. Colorful and snappy. Fun.
  4. Life Out of the Box:  Good deeds in faraway places. Working hard and having fun.
  5. Kristen Lamb’s Blog:  Words of wisdom for writers.
  6. Sethsnap:  Cool photography.
  7. Canadian Hiking Photography:  More visual goodness, and plenty of it.
  8. Annie’s Cooking Lab:  Think of this as a buddy movie. With recipes.
  9. Applecore:  Living the dream, and writing about it.
  10. Sorin Photography:  Clarity. Focus. Detail. Used together, you get intriguing images.
  11. Photo Nature Blog:  If you have any interest in nature photos, check out this blog.
  12. Shmamaland:  She juggles young kids and a camera. (I have enough trouble handling a camera and a job.)
  13. Leaf and Twig:  Poetry and nature, together.
  14. Hiking to Healthy:  An inspiration for me to keep moving.
  15. Seasonsgirl:  Chickens are cool.

7 Things About Myself:

  1. This blog marks a return to a hobby I had set aside many years ago, and brings me more joy than I expected.
  2. Sending two boys to college is a mixed blessing. Who is going to help us eat all the vegetables my husband is growing in that garden?
  3. If you want me to go somewhere unfamiliar, hand me a camera.
  4. Love books, and there aren’t enough hours in a day to read them.
  5. My day job includes a uniform, a microscope, and a scalpel.
  6. We still have jars of jam made three years ago. I opened one of them today and discovered it was delicious.
  7. Gardening was an acquired taste for me, and I am learning many things as I follow the changes of Bryon’s garden over time.
