Slowly returning from the woods & thank you’s!

Slowly coming out of the woods…
©copyright2015owpp

I am back but… there’s always a but isn’t there 🙂
Seriously, repairing a laptop means I am losing skydrive in my favorites which makes it impossible to retrieve photos so I needed the help of a connoisseur who would figure out the intricacies of our obscure (in my eyes at least!) world of technology.
I am still not completely out of the woods, my laptop is not one hundred percent up to its previous state of work but it’s faster & functioning better the rest are details which I hope will slowly get looked after with a lot of patience from my part & those always coming to my rescue!
Thanks for your patience, sticking with me through thick & thin, your commiseration & support through the likes & comments all along.
I will be posting hopefully today, a poem that I’ve been working on while all this was happening…

As a Jack in the box spring
Just popped out of a winter
Never begun not wanting to
Be forgotten fighting for
Its place in the kingdom
Of seasons…

Nominated for three awards at once…Thank you!


the lighthouse award

very inspiring blogger award

awsome blossom award

I feel very honored & privileged to come back with three awards in a row given so generously from
http://acuriousmind2013.wordpress.com/2014/03/04/very-inspiring-blogger-award-the-lighthouse-award-and-plus-one-%E2%98%BA/
Every time I get an award I’m as delighted as the first & surprised that bloggers would think my blog worthy of the tittles showered upon.
I’ll always be very grateful for this show of trust so, thank you to all who have until now believed in my work!

So, now for the lighthouse award I will share three ways I like to help people…

1. I like to lend an ear & find together with the person a practical solution to her dilemma.
2. Feel very honored to help a sweet old lady in the store when she picks me out of the crowd to help her with the smaller writings on a product.
3. And last but not least, as I consider my kids to be people too that come first on my list of priorities I want to be there for them 24/7 in case they need me.

Now, for the very inspiring blogger award seven trivial things about me… Mmm, that might be hard 🙂

1. I worry more than I should… but music can be the escape
2. I believe life should be far less complicated than we make it
3. I’d like things to sail smoothly but reality hits every time to remind me it’s breathing & alive 😉
4. I’d love to be surrounded by nature day in day out
5. I think it’s of utmost importance to appreciate every moment of the day but don’t always manage to
6. A very good joke is very hard to find & when you do it does the world of good
7. A good Macrobiotic restaurant is something I dream of

And the nominees are…

1. http://ladybluerose.wordpress.com/ A most precious blogger
2. http://momentswithmillie.wordpress.com/ Very worthy of these awards
3. http://myraysoflight.wordpress.com/ So very inspiring
4. http://living-simply-free.com/ A tremendous example
5. http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/ A very generous soul
6. http://soberidentity.com/ A true gem

Thanks once again for these awards!

Nomination for the blog of the year award


awards-blog-of-the-year-2013

My deep gratitude goes to http://aristonorganic.com/2014/02/18/blog-of-the-year-award-2/ for honoring me with this award, her blog is a true breath of fresh air visiting is a treat 🙂

There are so many amazing bloggers out there which I could nominate, of true quality, each one in its own right but this time I’ll focus on the photographers who are admirable in their patience, technique, accuracy & creativity.
They have a lot to offer to the blogger’s world & their nomination is my way of saying thank you, for reaching out there to us with valuable advice!

Capturing tenderness

These photos are a first in my photography’s experience which I’m quite proud of! There’s nothing like the joys of being grandparents, one of them, appreciating every bit of the miracle of babyhood.
The innocence, spontaneity when they run into your arms, the strength to say no in all honesty and force when they measure no more than three apples 🙂
I am sure a lot of my followers understand what I’m talking about and I hope these photos have captured the emotion of the moments you’ve spent with them too!

Nomination for the Versatile blogger’s award!


versatile-blogger-wordpress

I was kindly nominated for the versatile blogger’s award as a big new year’s surprise by http://earth-rider.com/2013/12/27/the-season-of-giving-awards/ and even though I had taken the resolution to restore all my vanished photos back into my blog instead of forever procrastinating I decided that such generosity shouldn’t go unnoticed & took upon myself to immediately get to it before getting on with the restoration…
So, my excuses go to all my bloggers for not following, liking your posts. I hope you forgive me & understand the sacrifices needed for me to update my blog.

A blog is not one of quality when the photography or the natural recipes categories are void of photos…

Here are the rules I got from http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

So, here goes, the fifteen bloggers I nominated are …

http://oilpastelsbymary.com/2013/12/11/snowy-field-oil-pastel/
http://inkspeare.me/
http://elenacaravela.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/watercolor-wednesday-52/
http://seasonspoetry.com/
http://awapara.wordpress.com/
http://gentleperseverence.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/anxiety-stirring-up-and-some-other-updates/
http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/
http://isabellaesthermariarose.com/
http://blogyvonne.wordpress.com/
http://alarnarosegray.com/
http://clairecappetta.wordpress.com/
http://friendlyfairytales.com/
http://thekitchensgarden.com/
http://soberidentity.com/
http://clanmother.com/

I know that not all of these bloggers will have the time to accept this award as it is quite time consuming nevertheless they are each and everyone in its own right a blogger of tremendous high quality which merits to be recognized by publishing its link in this blog.
This will be my tribute to their achievement in the domain of their endeavor 🙂

Finally I’ll include as it’s required seven things about myself.

1. I’m mad about the sea & anything connected to nature
2. One of my dreams is to go off-grid & live off the fruits of my labor
3. I dream (once again 😉 ) of a kind gentle honest world
4. I’d like to secure a safe future for my grandchildren
5. Surrounded in an atmosphere of artists is where I’d love to thrive in
6. It would be nice if my weaknesses would get weaker 😉
7. I’d love one day to have the privilege to meet a personality (again, in the domain of art)

All my thanks again for this award!
