A Few More Awards Have Arrived!

It’s about time I thanked a couple of kind blogging friends for their support and generosity in bestowing me a some new awards.

In March, Mama Bear Musing gave me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I thank dmauldin53, and since I have been awarded this award before, I refer you to my previous post about  what I have said about myself.

In May, The Seeker passed on the Sunshine Award, I Am Part of the WordPress Family Award and Super Sweet Blogging Award, and stipulated no rules.

I have a sweet tooth, and so I am pleased to accept again the Super Sweet Blogging Award from dmauldin53 a couple of days ago.

The questions I have to answer are:

1.  Cookies or Cake?    Cake    2.  Favourite sweet treat?   Crème Caramel, made from real ingredients  3. Sweet Nickname?   Sorry, I don’t have one   4. What is the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for you?   The first one that comes to mind is that my daughter volunteered to make (her first) a Christmas cake for the family and spared me the work last year   5.  What is your sweetest memory?   I accepted a challenge and ate half a dozen Chinese egg tarts

I am now nominating 5 people/blogs for the Super Sweet Blogging Award (alphabetical order):

Bea’s Bites

Janet’s Notebook

Sassy Earl Grey

On the same day, The Seeker sent out several awards as a token of appreciation. I thank The Seeker and accept the following tokens to be passed on.

Three Awards In A Day: Sisterhood-In-The World-Bloggers Award, Very Inspiring Blogger Award and Sunshine Award


These three awards were generously awarded to me by PaulaB, blogger of The Temenos Journal, and I thank PaulB for giving me this opportunity to pass them on to other bloggers as a gesture of my gratitude for their support and inspiration. PaulaB was very kind to suggest that there are no rules, and indeed, there some duplication in the rules, which also seem to vary among bloggers for the same award.  I shall attempt to deal with them by grouping them together. 

The rules of the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award are:

  1. Recipients need to thank the giver.
  2. Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog.
  3. Post 7 things about yourself.
  4. Pass the award onto 7 other bloggers of your choice and let them know they’ve been nominated (stay tuned…)

Now the Sunshine Award, which I read somewhere are for those “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”: The rules are:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 5 things about yourself.
  4. Pass the award onto 8 other bloggers and link to one of their specific posts so that they get notified.

Finally, for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

1. Paste the icon of the award in your post.
2. Thank the person who nominates you and put a link back to the blog.
3. Share seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other blogs and inform them about it.

I have answered some questions about myself earlier when I accepted the Liebster Award, the Reader Appreciation Award and the Versatile Blogger Award. Rather than repeating myself, I have decided on the theme of Music, and here are 7 more facts about me and music.

1. I like music. 2. My favourite genre is classical music. 3. My favourite composers are Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. 4. I also like operas. 5. While my favourite arias and duets are too numerous to count, I can listen over and over again the Polovtsian Dances in Borodin’s Prince Igor and the choruses in Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers. 6. While I play the piano, my favourite instruments to listen to are the strings. 7. My favourite living musical artists are Jesse Norman (mezzo-soprano), Yo-Yo Ma (Cellist), Itzak Perlman and James Ehnes (violinists), Seiji Ozawa and Zubin Mehta (conductors).

And now, Award time. The seven sisters/blogs I wish to nominate for the Sisterhood-in-the Bloggers World Award are: Karen and Wendy of afterthekidsleave,  Mary Frances of lovethesecretingredients, Liz of  Dot knows, Vnvie of yestocooking,   Jaimmers of Where does this road goes,  dmaudline53 of Mama Bear Musings, and  insideout80 of The Love and Life Project. Please also accept the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and the Sunshine Award, if you like them.

I wish there were a fraternity award that I could give out to male fellow bloggers. Nevertheless, I am pleased to have a mixed gender list here for the Sunshine Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

 Janet’s Notebook,       Mike’s Look at Life,        breathofgreenair       Bea’s Bites
