THANK YOU  to all my blog followers and readers.


Laura at  The View From My Window has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.

I am, as always, touched and grateful  when fellow bloggers  acknowledge  my work and words

as award worthy. Thank you, Laura.

Versatile blogger award

I have made the very hard decision that from now on my blog will become an Awards Free one. It is not because I do not appreciate Awards. I do. There are so many and varied views about the value of awards. I don’t want to get into that. I have truly appreciated each and every nomination.

Why Awards Free? Time constraint is a major and pressing issue.  Who to pass nominations onto always presents a dilemma. There are many blogs I would love to nominate for Awards, and have done so, only to discover afterwards that they are in fact awards free. They in turn feel compelled to apologise and explain their stance.  I will always continue to express my appreciation in other ways.

I would like to nominate each and every blogger who visits my site an Award!  You are all worthy in your own unique way. The diversity, wit and humour, depth and breadth of fascinating subjects explored in so many different ways is truly awesome and inspiring. I sincerely thank  each and every one of you!

Laura has also nominated the following blogs for the same award. Congratulations to all ! Do pay them a visit.

Heaven Happens

Fleeting Muse

Shandra Eats

Spiritual Dragonfly

Just Blue Dutch

Today is Day 7 of the 7 day photo challenge I received from

Michaela of  When Life Gives  You Lemons

I believe I should have been passing this 7 day nature photo challenge on to one other person

on a daily basis! My mistake. However, better late than never:

I now pass the photography baton on to Gretchen

  1. I understand. You can only devote so much time to Leibster type awards or different assignments before you have to get back to your own work. So, I see you nominated me for something? I’ll check into it. No promises…Thanks!! 😊😊

  2. I understand exactly how you feel about awards. It’s wonderful to receive a nomination, but sadly responding to them properly can take a lot of time, and blogging is very time-consuming to begin with.

  3. Congrats on your blog recognition! I’m with you on time constraints, blogging is time-consuming as it is.

  4. ❤️❤️❤️ I’m with you in this Raili. I appreciate the recognition from my fellow bloggers as well as each and every comment and like… really does humble me when I’m chosen as a recipient,,,,..but awards are not why I blog….I blog in the hopes of touching someone with my photographs and words. If I can do that, I’m a winner. Have a beautiful day my friend. ❤️

  5. Thank you so much for the mention! I’m really grateful that you took time to think of me for this. I will really try my best to respond on this but right now I’m just really time-squeezed because we’re going to move next month and I can’t post regularly.
    Thank you once again for the beautiful thought behind this.
