It’s been a cocooning kind of week. I’ve only taken the karma truck out to visit friends, read their posts and marvel at their talents. I was beginning to worry a bit that I had run out of gas (so to speak), but realized that isn’t the case. Sometimes you just have to idle for a little bit. Perhaps not the most intriguing scene to set, but the most transparent.
So it came as a complete, out-of-the-blue surprise when I received the Super Sweet Blogging Award from Vicky, the author of the absolutely gorgeous ‘This Abundantly Delicious Life’ (abundelic.wordpress.com). Vicky’s blog successfully meets her intention – she has created a space of gratitude and appreciation. Her delight with all that surrounds her and her awareness of so much within her, brings me back all the time. Thank you so much for including me in your thoughts Vicky – I am in rarefied company!
Though I am not known for my ability to follow directions, I will do so now. The rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you. Check.
2. Answer the questions. Next paragraph
3. Pay it forward to a baker’s dozen and notify them. The paragraph after the next one.
1. Cookies or cake?
2. Chocolate or vanilla
Chocolate. Unless I’m having a soft-serve ice cream cone, in which case I have to have a combination of the two.
3. What is your favorite sweet treat, cheesecake or frozen yogurt?
I thought frozen yogurt was just good for you – it’s a treat? Sigh…
4. When do you crave sweet things most?
Late afternoon. When others are pouring a glass of wine, I am looking for M&Ms.
5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
I did actually..My dad called me ‘cookie’. It was easier to say than ‘linzer tart’ or ‘apple turnover’ (the two forbidden treats that we would always get when sent to the bakery to pick up some seedless rye bread).
My baker’s dozen – as you know, I struggle with this, for there are so many bloggers I admire (and Vicky already named quite a few of them!)
Wait – there’s more!! There really are more – there’s so much talent out there. It is humbling to part of this community. Thank you Vicky – your timing was truly karmic.
