All the recipient is supposed to do is thank the giver, post seven things about him/herself, and pass the award on to seven other bloggers. I know it takes some time, and we are busy, so...I sure won't hold it against you if you don't pass it on. In that case, just accept it in the spirit in which it was given. I like your blog--I like you, I think that your blog is "sweet".
First, seven things about me. <brevity here, Teresa. Brevity...>
1. I can't walk through a cornfield once the stalks are taller than me. I blame this on the movie "The Day of the Triffids".
2. When I am really stressed, I bake cookies, bread or cake--to calm me down.
3. When my sister, Betty, and I were really little, if we got thirsty while we were out playing, we used to lay down on our bellies and drink water right out of the creek. There was a cow pasture upstream. Yuck. :-)
4.I think mold is the most fascinating thing on the planet, right after humans, of course.
5.I believe there is other intelligent life out among the stars. (I know...sometimes the life here doesn't seem very intelligent)
6.I am deeply disturbed while in the the Primate house/habitat at the zoo. Weird, huh? It becomes extremely uncomfortable for me if one of them looks me in the eye.
7.I am a weather junkie, a weatherbug nerd, a weather.com geek.
Please, try to look at me the same you did before you read that list of seven. ;-)
Moving on... Sweet, huh? Irresistibly sweet, in fact. Okay, off the top of my head,
1. Deb Previte has several blogs, and I cannot pick a "sweetest" one, so am forced to post a link to her profile--and if you have time to look them over, let you decide. I am partial to "A Bookish Libraria" because I like her book reviews. The kindness comes through. She is genuine.
2. Harleena Singh over at Aha- Now! A complete family blog. has set a wonderful mood on the homepage. When I visit her blog, it feels as though I am sitting and having a warm chat with a dear person. She delivers tips, advice, observations and musings on family, health, and general well-being. always responds and, like Deb above, her kindness comes through.
3. Gigi and Dianna, at Momma Wears Boots are grandma and great aunt to two little boys--adorable little boys. The blog was set up to keep their mother in touch with her babies while she is deployed. They don't post often, but when they do, it is sweet to watch and read, and I always wipe tears after I leave my comment. No matter where you are on political/military issues, it strikes a chord. It is hard to be away from family, and the world over, people in the military suffer the separation of parent/child child/parent.
4.Melissa Ann Goodwin, author of The Christmas Village, blogs at Writer on the Road. Okay, She is not so sweet today. I read her latest post and she has a gripe. :-) But as a rule, her blog is very sweet, enthusiastic, and enjoying life. They have sold their things, bought an RV, and are going to become full-time RV-ers. <envy...much envy> I will enjoy reading about their adventures as they find their way around the country.
5. Michelle Miller of The True Book Addict has a blog called The Christmas Spirit. Not that the True Book Addict is not a wonderful blog, but The Christmas Spirit is full of sugarplums and such. <wink> It is a fun place to rest a spell and take in the mood. Lots of Christmas ideas, Christmas reading suggestions, contest, giveaways... Very sweet, indeed.
6. Alison Deluca, author of The Night Watchman Express writes at Fresh Pot of Tea where she hands out writing tips, reviews books, shares links with other writers and muses on life, at times sharing stories about her own sweet family.
7. Debbie's My Life. One Story at a Time is surely a sweet blog. She posts reviews, and is a generous supporter of the writing community. Oh my!The badges, the links...to wonderful connections all. And I think I even saw a blog about sweet tea :-)
The disclaimer: I have not reviewed these sites specifically searching for this award. I would not be surprised to discover that some of these blogs have already been given this, several times over.
There were so many others that I wanted to include...
Happy blogging all!
