ABC Wednesday -- C is for Crescent Moon & CHALLENGE

I wanted to use today's post not only as an ABC Wednesday post but to use Mrs Nesbitt's large audience (I know she won't mind because she loves meeting new people and sharing the blog universe!) in order to share the following and passing on the Brillante Weblog award:

I want to thank Michelle at Rambling Woods for sharing this award with me! If you haven’t seen her blog, you MUST click on the logo and go there immediately! She is a wonderful photographer and writer and will open your eyes to seeing Nature around you.

I’m thrilled with the honor, but challenged by the rule that I must nominate 7 other bloggers! There are so many of you that I enjoy visiting! Michelle graciously gave us an “out” and I will do the same for those I’m nominating: You don’t HAVE TO do this! LOL.

SO, in no particular order:
1) RAF at Port Townsend Daily Photo, a man with multiple talents and life experiences that we all appreciate him sharing with us!

2) JIM at Terrell Daily Photo, one of the very first to visit and comment when I got started and faithful ever since. A great example of what a fellow blogger should be: talented and supportive!

3) BABOOSHKA at Ramsey Daily Photo, brilliant and funny and helpful to those of us with lesser talent! Also a faithful and supportive visitor to me and many, many others. If, like me, you're unfamiliar with the Isle of Man, prepare to be educated!

4) TOM at Ohio Nature Blog, who probably has no idea I’ve ever been there because I’m so poor at taking the time to comment. He has a wonderful nature blog you all must see!

5) JALYNN at Jaylynn's Window on Nature, another one I sneak in to see. Wonderful nature photography. Jalynn hails from Pennsylvania.

6) MICHELLE at Rocky Mountain Retreat, one of the first nature blogs I discovered when I started this. Remarkable person and photographer. As a fan of the Colorado Rockies, I love seeing the Canadian Rockies through Michelle's lens.

7) ZACH, at Zach-Attack Picture blog. OK, I’m really prejudiced about this one. This is my 18-year old nephew who is just barely getting started with blogging and I want us all to see his work and to encourage him!

And here are the rules for you seven if you choose to play:
Put the logo on your blog...
Add a link to the person who awarded you.
Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
Add links to those blogs on yours.
Leave a message for your nominees on their blog

Thank you for the award. I love all of your photos, one day I am going to have to visit the lake. The moon looks great, did you get any rain?

I am so honored that you took the time to look at my blog and that you nominated me for this award. I will be looking at all these blogs as time allows. Unfortunately I can't participate in the award fare, as I just don't have the time to devote to it. Besides working, I take care of my 82 yr. old father, and a household of my own. It keeps me stepping to get time to photograph and slip in trips from time to time and then edit and post the pictures. I do appreciate your nomination though. Thanks and God Bless.

Congratulations to all of the lucky winners.

Jalynn, I totally understand! There's no pressure for anyone to continue this. But I'm sure everyone who sees your site will agree that you should copy/paste the award there! Best of luck in your busy life...God Bless.

Lake Lady said...

Rambling Woods -- the thanks still go to YOU. I have so many new blogs to visit now that I think I MUST find a way to retire!

raf said...

Your crescent moon is a perfect C! I wanted to enlarge, but it wouldn't go.

Your award is wonderful and you are very deserving of being recognized for your excellent blogs. You are also very kind, Lake lady, and I thank you for honoring me.

Thanks you for the lovely award and words. I have had blogger issues which is why I've been on the quiet side. Wll blogging not me personally. That could never happen.
