A Community Garden and ABC Awards

Posted on Updated on

“…A community needs a soul if it is to become a true home for human beings. You, the people must give it this soul.” Pope John Paul II

* “The blogosphere is made up of all blogs and their interconnections. The term implies that blogs exist together as a connected community…” Wiki.

Once again I returned from an internet-free break, and once again I’m treated to an **extra-special email notification from Robin Coyle nominating me for an Awesome Blog Content (ABC) Award. Not only is Robin talented and inspiring, she is a generous award giver, and I thank her for nominating me once again, and giving me the opportunity to pass it on.

Awesome Blog Content (ABC) Award

The ABC award asks the recipient to name 26 alphabetical things about themselves and then nominate other bloggers. I put my hand into the virtual sack and the nominees for the Awesome Blog Content Award are:

Just a quick word on blog awards. I’ve listed some of these blogs for other awards but they’re back again because I think they fit the ABC criteria. Accepting awards to enable you to nominate other worthy recipients isn’t for the faint hearted or time poor. Nominees are under no obligation to accept and there’s no timeframe on responding, or obligation to do so 🙂

A to Z of EllaDee

A = Amusing. Or tries to be.

B = Bloggers. Love them.

C = City dweller. For now, and it’s good.

D = Damn Good.

E = Everyday. Finding magic & mystery in it.

F =Fortunate. Serendipity favours me.

G = Gorgeous One. The silent partner in the EllaDee blog posts.

H = Happy. My favourite word.

I = Images. “There is art in the everyday. It’s easy to walk through the world and not see. Time moves on. Things change. I’m taking the time to look & stop & capture moments & colours of ordinary things & day-to-day life in snapshots.”

J = Junk ? I think not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

K = Keyboard. An extension of my being.

L = Luck. Make your own.

M = Mutable. Apparently comes from having a Sagi sun sign and Aquarian moon combination (the opposite of my Dad).

N = Nosy… “I’m a devotee of internet, email, ebooks: any sort of information and communication. I have eclectic reading tastes but people’s lives, stories & journeys particularly appeal to me.”

O = Observant. Switched on, it re-engaged me with my world.

P = Places. “Somehow you’ll escape, all that waiting and staying. You’ll find the bright places, where Boom Bands are playing…” (Dr. Seuss)

Q = Quotations. They find me just when I need them most.

R = Rich. In life.

S = Street Art. Love it.

T = Taylors Arm. You can take the girl out of the country…

U = Universe. I’m a believer.

V = Visual. You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”  Paulo Coelho

W = Words. Read them or write them. They save me.

*X = Xenogamy. In scientific terms : the pollination of the stigma of a flower by pollen from a flower on another plant but in blogging terms: the awards, followers, comments, likes…

Y = Young at heart.

Z = Zen. I live right here, right now.

**Robin is one of my favourite bloggers so all email notifications from her are special, and even though she already has the ABC Award, I couldn’t leave her off my list..

    Thank you very much for another award, I really appreciate you giving my blog yet another one (I think you have just turned into my top award giver), content is a nice one to be complimented on. Goes without saying that you deserve it too. I think it’s perfectly acceptable to include the donor in your list of recipients too if they are one of your faves. I was thinking of a potential list of my own and one of the first was PMOTH which I see is on yours 🙂

      Besides entertaining me with your own blogs, you’ve been responsible for leading me to other great blogs, hence Xenogamy 😉

    Thank you so much EllaDee for the award. Of course I’ll accept the honor you’ve given me. Although it’s a repeat I still treasure it. As my way of playing it back, I created the Bean’s Pat, in which I daily link to my choice for best blog of the day. I’m sure you’ll find your blog listed one of these days.
