When it Rains

It seems like I need to go away to get noticed. Okay, I'm only joking about that. But while I was gone, I not only received a Rockin' Girl Bogger award, but Debbie over at One Step at a Time thought I was worthy of a Nice Matters Award. That is very sweet of you Debbie and I feel duly honoured to be thought nice enough to receive this award. And if I could give it back to Debbie, I certainly would as she has got to be one of the nicest bloggers out there.

"This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you've been awarded, please pass onto others whom you feel are deserving of this award." So, without further ado, I pass this award onto:

Cheryl over at Free Range Living. Her blog is like comfort food. To read it makes you feel like you've known her for years and are sipping tea with her in her kitchen. Wait a minute...I have known her for years. Still, she is one of the nicest gals I know, full of inspiration and positive influence.

Chani over at Thailand Gal. Her thought provoking posts always inspire good discussion.

Mark over at Naked Soul. Wait a minute...can I give this award to a guy? Mark is always challenging personal growth in his readership, in a caring manner that is sensitive to others' backgrounds.

Rowena over at Rubber Slippers in Italy. She always sees the most positive, beautiful things wherever she goes and has the most delightful adventures. I enjoy her commentary.

Pinks over at Pink Pages for her boundless, positive energy. It's fun to follow her journey through life.

Of course there are many other nice bloggers out there. Many of them, I've noticed have already received this award. Check out my sidebar if you are looking for more.

I really enjoyed visiting here..

Carla said...

Mark, You are simply a wonderful writer whether compared to women or men. I have really enjoyed your posts.

Chani, Well, you've made me think which, of course, makes me think of you. Thanks.

Carla said...

Pinks, Oh, I understand that jet lag thing. They say that cherries help. In any case, I'll think boundless energy in your direction.

Shelby, I'm glad you enjoy the visits. You have a wonderful blog yourself.

JBelle said...

this is VERY nice. Whoever gave you this is right on the money.

Fede said...

Hello Carla, stopping by. Thanks for pointing out new blogs to explore. Even if they have been there in the left side column it is always good to stress some of them every once in a while.
Good night and good luck.

Sirdar said...

Again...you deserve it :-)

Carla said...

JBelle, Aw...thanks. Very sweet of you to say so.

Fede, I agree...it's always a pleasant surprise to find a new wonderful blog.

Carla said...

Sirdar, Thanks. I appreciate the thought.

Steffi said...

Congrats to all nominated from me too!

Cheryl said...

Thank you so much, Carla. How great is it that someone who's known me for more than 20 years still thinks I'm nice?!
;D

rowena said...

Thanks Carla! I just hopped on over after reading your comment and for some reason, the phrase "sugar and spice and everything nice..." ran through my head! Now to check out the other nice bloggers mentioned in this post. ;-)

Carla said...

Steffi, I would have nominated you too, but noticed you've already received the award.

Cheryl, Well, you must be nice if I've known you for that long. And we're what? All of 25 now? Heh, heh.

Carla said...

Rowena, Sugar and spice would be in perfect keeping with all the wonderful food pictures and recipes on your blog.

I was glad when Debbie gave you and others the award, it made my choices easier. Congratulations to you and your choices. I gave the award to Sirdar and RaJ who are guys, but I haven't noticed if they put it in the sidebar or not.

Carla said...

Dawn, It's not easy to make the choices as there are so many good bloggers out there. I guess the point is to leave some for others to choose.

pandave said...

Carla said...

Pandave, I hope you enjoy :-)

Debbie said...

Carla said...

Debbie, You wholeheartedly deserve it. Hugs.
