Friends bearing gifts!

Last Sunday was ordinary. No rushing around, just sitting in the backyard under a big shady tree while the little one played at the playground a few feet away. It’s my special time to catch up on my reading of blogs, chatting with mom via viber or listening to a little music as I enjoy the cool summer breeze coming in off the water.

I’ve made a few new blog connections recently and was rather thrilled that even if I hadn’t posted any new material the wewk prior, our stats still reported our blog was having a productive week — we didn’t flatline! Yay!!!

Of late I’ve been reading posts from my email instead of from the WordPress blog feed and this allows me to save the longreads for when I have larger chunks of time (in an “items to read” folder), read the short ones immediately,  then clear out the inbox so things don’t get deeper that 100 emails.

Well much to my amazement one of my new followers (friends) stopped by to say hello and brought with her a nice surprise — The Premio Dardos Award! It’s so nice when friends come over with gifts and it certainly is lovely to be appreciated.

Thank you


for your kindness and for adding a little extra sunshine to my day. I am delighted!

The Premio Dardos Award appears to be

‘ an award that is passed on from blogger to blogger in recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values that are transmitted in the form of creative and original writing ideas.’

The rules associated with this award are very simple and are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Post the badge on your page
  3. Nominate 15 other fellow bloggers
  4. Notify those you’ve nominated

Pretty simple right? No need to answer any questions or create questions to ask your nominees.

The bloggers/ friends I’d love to share this gift with are as follows:

  1. https://zyoshiko.wordpress.com/

Fifteen nominees seem like a lot so I’ll stop here. Now off to notify everyone.

One last thank you to  https://nopassingfancy.wordpress.com you’ve certainly made me smile.

Happy blogging everyone!

Best wishes,

  1. This was buried under all the posts in my inbox at my yahoo address while I was away on my mini-break visiting friends in Izmir. And it has taken me this long to get to only a hundred or so left to read (it is hard to read from from iPad so they just accumulated). And here you are with this news of your award–congratulations on that–and your nomination of my blog. I thank you for honoring me in this fashion but I tend to avoid awards. I think loyal readers are reward enough and so even though you honor me in this way, you honor me even more by reading and liking things I post, whether it is my own writing or the writings of others that I share. I truly appreciate that. Thanks again and I’m glad to see you are getting recognition for your own work. Have you finally decided on a writing program?

      1. Well let me know what you decide. I went to Ohio because I wanted my wife (ex-wife now) to be near her family but if I had to do it over again, I would have stayed in NY. There were good programs then, as I’m sure there still are now.

      2. Okay, I’ll let you know. My little one starts school this fall (Sept 9) so I’m giving myself time adjust to her new schedule and to breathe a little before saddling into a new schedule for me. Hence the intention of the Spring start date 🙂
        Nice of you to think of the other half back then. The things we do/did for love… oh well 🙂
