Nominations for A Lovely Blog Award


I live in America and was nominated for this award by a fellow blogger in India. By doing some research, I see this award has gone all over the world. The following blogs have entertained me, educated me, supported me and sometimes surprised me.  Traveling, writing, painting, gardening, sailing and even eating are represented here. Have fun checking them out.


To receive this award, the blogger must share the following with their readers:

  1. Thank the person who honored them with this award and post their links;
  2. Nominate 15 other blogs for this honor; and
  3. Tell readers seven things about themselves.


Here are my nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award.

Seven Random Facts About Myself – The Lovely Blog Award – India to America

Seven random facts about myself

(It became a list of seventeen)

I like Seeing the light of dawn

It’s my favorite time of the day

Hearing the sound of quiet

Is up there with listening to the sea

I placed third in a half triathlon

I’m curious and want to touch everything

I miss the taste of chocolate

And English tea

I don’t like Rush Limbaugh

I love the smell of puppy’s breath,

Sweet peas, and freshly cut grass

Drawing is my passion

Swimming in the sea is a close second

I like

My husband’s Christmas

Being surrounded by family

And having a good talk with a friend.


Part Two of my posts about The Lovely Blog Award send to me by Manu Kurup, from Southern India, 

‘One Lovely Blog Award’


Manu Kurup Southern India, has nominated me for One Lovely Blog Award. I accept this award, Manu. Thank you! I am surprised and pleased. I recommend you all go to Manu’s website to take a ride with him through his many interesting posts. He travels, write, cooks, reads, tells stories of his childhood – is very friendly answering comments. I’d nominate him for awards but he is stacking them up right and left.  This nomination creates a new learning curve for me. What do I do to get the image here? How do I do a ping back? How do I add the image to my homepage? How do I nominate others? How do they know they got nominated?

The requirements of the Award are to mention who nominated me and link back to his/her blog, display the award image anywhere on my blog, reveal 7 things that you may not know about me, nominate 15 blogs for the award and tell them of the nomination (linking their blogs in this post) including a link back to this post.

Here is my first part. I’ll go away now and figure out how to do the next part of this nomination.

Again, thanks Manu!
