It’s So Lovely


I do so enjoy serendipity finds, those unexpected moments of joyful surprise. The other day as I was scrolling through my notifications I discovered Megan of Make Something Mondays. provided one such moment, by nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Having just finished a long week of parent-teacher conferences and staff meetings, this proved to be just the pick me up needed.

For once I’ll try not to scribble outside the lines in the midst of the procedure.
So, thanks, Megan who can be found at Make Something Mondays

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog in your post [check]
2. List the rules and display the award logo [check]
3. Include seven facts about yourself [check]
4. Nominate ten others and let them know you’ve nominated them [working on…]

Seven Facts About Me:
1. I am a librarian at heart who teaches high school English
2. Absolutely crave light–I have two Happy Lights to survive winter
3. Walking is preferred form of exercise, unless turning pages in a book counts
4. Resisting dark chocolate is tragically pointless for me
5. Soggy cereal is worse than creamed corn in my opinion
6. The Dick Van Dyke show of the sixties is still my all-time favorite TV show
7. I tan walking to the mailbox–is that bragging or a fact?
I nominate the following for also having lovely blogs:
1. Reading with Rhythm–a dog who promotes reading is irresistible
2. Mike Allegra--well, he isn’t lovely but he is lovable
3. Paperback Princess–a definite Book Booster
4. The Room Mom--a cheery, update blog about being a parent/teacher
5. Friendly BookWorm–another wonderful Book Booster
6. Writer Side Up--always lovely to have such an enthusiastic blogger about
7. Sorry, I’m Booked–yup, another Book Booster
8. A Writer’s Life for Me--I do appreciate another writer
9. Mustard Seed Budget–providing thoughtful uplifting messages
10. Eagle-Eyed Editor–one of my first blogging buddies

Wait–only ten?

Drat…

You do know you are ALL lovely, right?

Thanks for stopping by and please visit the others–you won’t be disappointed.

Blue Skies,

Cricket Muse

  1. Pam, I am SO flattered by this! πŸ™‚ Seriously! I can’t actually accept the award (here’s why: http://writersideup.com/2014/10/20/up-two-winners-and-one-of-them-is-me/) in anything more than my heart and mind , and to me, that’s where it counts anyway πŸ˜€ In fact, since I’m declining the “official” acceptance, I’d love to see you add someone else to your list! I’m familiar with Mike, of course, and Rhythm, but not the others so am checking them out NOW!…

    Thanks so much, Pam! I happen to think your blog is a VERY Lovely One, too. It’s one I very genuinely enjoy πŸ˜€

    • I just realized I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed reading your answers, btw πŸ™‚ You may do what I do—I sprinkle my cereal into my bowl of milk, bits at a time so it CAN’T get soggy πŸ™‚ And OH, The Dick Van Dyke Show! πŸ˜€

  2. Dark chocolate is impossibe to resist. Even cooking chocolate ha. Well done for the award.

  3. Thank you, CM! I agree — resistance is futile when it comes to chocolate. Or books.

  4. Well, thanks a bunch for a lovely award! I never really know what to do with awards but am quite humbled to receive them. Especially from such a lovely one as yourself! This award is well placed on your shoulders!

  5. Congrats for a truly deserved award! Turning the pages of a book,sure that counts as exercise, why not? πŸ™‚

  6. Make Something Mondays on said:

    Very nice! I got to learn a lot about you in your facts. It’s always great to learn about my fellow bloggers. Secret: I have happy lights too. I get so depressed in the winter.

  7. I’m with ya on the creamed corn and soggy cereal. Pass the happy lights. We’re heading into winter! Cheers!

  8. I feel so loved! And you, Cricket, are indeed lovely.

    I’m not familiar with a few of these folks. I’m gonna hafta drop in on ’em this morning… I hope they have coffee.

  9. Pam, I have, in fact, just now finished visiting all your “Lovely” blogs, and they are, in fact, VERY Lovely πŸ™‚

  10. A richly deserved award, what is more impressive though is your skill at tanning, This pasty bloke is jealous of you!

  11. Congratulations on the award!
