If Life Gives You Lemons...

Sage at Wise Herb's Random Jottings honored me today with the Lemonade Award, as one of her " favourite blogs". I'm honored to be included on her list.

Now I'm supposed to nominate other blogs to receive the award. It was hard to limit myself to just 10 blogs that entertain me on a regular basis, but a rule's a rule. If you're nominated and want to participate, that would be awesome, but please don't feel obligated to do so.

My nominations (in alphabetical order, so as to not play favorites):

Artistic Mission--One of the great things about the Internet is the ability to read about subjects that are completely foreign to me. Dan Jaboor is a full-time artist and blogs about his creations and art shows in the St. Louis area.

Available Light--Kathy P is another person I don't think I'd ever run into in my "regular" life; I always look forward to her blog posts.

Dkzody's Weblog--Dkzody is a teacher in an inner city high school in California. I enjoy reading her thoughts about teaching and life.

Going Crunchy--Shannon lives in the Chicago area and works in a library. As she puts it, her writing is "about a librarian, the environment and life".

In the New--My blogging inspiration. Jen Mac was the original "new thing a day" blogger. After she finished her project, she took a long break, but I'm happy that she's back at it!

Life in the 2nd half century... --emom's tagline is "Who knew life after 50 would be so much better?" I think she may be the only blogger I read who regularly writes in blank verse!

One Dad's Life--Gregg mixes family anecdotes and beautiful photographs he's taken. His blog is usually good for a laugh.

Philip Barron--One of the newest subscriptions in my RSS reader. Philip comments on current events, sports, and food...and occasionally about cats.

Scribbit--I think Sage nominated this blog too, but I'm going to copy her. Michelle writes from Alaska; how cool is that?

Walk It Off! A Walker's Rambles...--Written by my friend JD, who also is the crochet editor for the Craft Gossip Blog Network. JD is one of my frequent walking partners, and I often read something in one of her posts that we've talked about on the track!

If you're interested in nominating other bloggers for the award, here are some guidelines:
  1. Put the logo on your blog or post.

  2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!

  3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post and let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

  4. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.


  1. Thank you!
    I am honored.
    I'll try this, sounds like fun!

  2. Thanks for the nomination. It's nice to have such a faithful reader like you, and often I think of how my dear Readers will respond to some of my posts. I will attempt to come up with my 10. I've certainly "stolen" some of your links to find others who make my reading very enjoyable.

  3. I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the mention! As usual with these things, it came at a PERFECT time.

    When my wife and I met, we had a goal of "having an adventure a day." Well, we kind of fell off that quest, but reading your "new thing a day" series really captured that feeling.

    What a great attitude to have!

  4. Thank you, that is so sweet! Especially since I've had some lemons lately and need to make lemonade. Appreciate the thought!

    My comment was cut off on your post above for some reason. My husband swears that you can dry out electronics many a time. Keep us posted!
